The perfect way to add instant glam and rise to the occasion. Whatever it is.

I’m a true believer that if someone complimented you for just one thing that you’re wearing, you already scored. Not necessarily a big item, it can be as small as this mini bag. Yes, we all like a great big handbag to carry all of our life’s inside. No doubt about it. But once in the blue moon, we just want to leave that ‘baggage’ at home.

Thank goodness for mini handbags, formerly known as pouch, clutch, whatever they called it. Accessorize yourself with a cute mini handbag and that compliment will surely be yours. Need suggestion? Spoil yourself with these fabulous choices.

Wine. Darker shade of red, sophisticated, warm, yet it made us look cool and expensive at the same time. Check out the latest runways from NY Fashion Week Fall 2013, covered with wine colors, different textures and styles. 


Now that it’s raining more than ever…

Know that we’ll still have our umbrella. But not just a typical umbrella to make you shine on the rainy days. These cute and fancy ella ella ay ay ay… (hello Rihanna), will be our best friend through this wet season.

1.    Fulton Umbrella

If it’s good enough for the Queen herself, it must be the right iconic umbrella to have. Dome and transparent, it’ll provide complete coverage of your head and shoulders.

2.    Lisbeth Dahl Umbrella

Princessy umbrella from a well known Danish designer. Uniquely shaped like pagoda, it looks darn luxurious.

3.    Pasotti Umbrella

From one of the leading makers of luxury umbrellas in Italy, it comes with oversized bow. Ultra feminine yet quirky.

4.    Diane von Furstenberg Umbrella

A stylish way to stay dry with her signature print in black and white.

5.    Felix Rey Umbrella

Super bubbly with details like polka dots and a playful face graphic. I love this one!

6.    Marc by Marc Jacobs Umbrella

Another playful umbrella, covered by his logo letters.

7.    Jonathan Adler Umbrella

Perfect pick for those who love graphic and bold colors.





You’re most welcome to indulge in a very high end way. Have a tea party courtesy of Prada tea bags, work out in style with Chanel hand weights, or simply playing cards with your girlfriends using Lanvin playing cards. Life is that good, yes?

Things they did to make us more addictive to their brands. But, really, do we need them? If you can afford them, why the heck not?
