WEEKEND UPDATE

Designer Shoes

1. I can definitely feel spring coming here in the Bay Area. I recently pulled out my much loved black Birkenstock Gizehs out for the first time in months – only to realize that they’re all stretched out! I guess pregnancy feet? I can’t live without these sandals, so another pair is already on its way, so that I can break them in as soon as possible.

In the meantime, what do you all think of these “Santa Fe” espadrilles, by Tory Burch?

Tory Burch, $195

I kind of love them, but am not fully sure if they are actually admiration worthy, or something I should be sent to preppy jail for instead. The fact that they feature both a cactus and a pepper is why I probably will end up owning these by the end of summer, regardless. What do you think?

2. An interesting piece on the current state of fashion week, and the fashion industry in general, via The Washington Post, The Fashion Industry….It’s Missing the Real Problem.

3. Well, while we’re talking about fashion week – I have another fashion piece! Whether the event is relevant still or not, I loved this review of New York Fashion Week, done by Cathy Horyn in graphic novel style. Her reviews are concise, interesting to read, and spot on – and even more fun in comic form.

4. Frequent fliers and road warriors may particularly enjoy this article, via The New Yorker – The Madness of Airline Elite Status.

5. This week I finished a great book – Half of a Yellow Sun, by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. I have to admit that I purchased this book awhile ago, and it’s been sitting on my Kindle for over a year. I kept thinking that I should read it, yet I kept getting distracted by books with plot descriptions like, “Bored housewife become serial killer”.

Half Yellow Sun

I finally started reading Half of a Yellow Sun earlier this week though, and realized that I should have read it much, much sooner. The novel tells the story of various characters during the Nigerian Civil War, all related to one another – a pair of sisters, a houseboy, an expatriate. I was immediately drawn into the story of the actual characters, which is compelling enough – however, I also really enjoyed learning more about Nigerian life, the Igbo people, and the devastation of the Nigerian/Biafran War. My favorite books are those I can’t put down because of the story, and where I come out having learned something new. This is one of those novels – highly recommended.

Adidas Originals NMD R1 Whiteout-Blackout Pack

Designer Shoes

Depending on what side of the fence you’re on, it’s going to be a big yay or a huge nay as far as these next interpretations of Adidas Originals’ limited edition NMD R1sneakers are concerned. Covered literally with words ‘The Brand With The Three Stripes‘ in English and various other languages, it will come in both black and white variations and according to END, will be released online on their e-commerce site on 8 July 2016.

My gut feel? It won’t be long before Adidas Singapore announces their availability locally, and it might also pop out at various speciality stores like Pedder on Scotts andSeek. No word yet on the price, so do stay tuned for more updates.

Gucci Turnaround Tote

Designer Shoes

Gucci Marmont Wallet ClutchGucci Marmont Clutch BagThe simplistic ‘Wallet on Chain’ bag trend is an essential that should be in everyones bag-drobe. There are days when a handheld purse like a wallet or clutch just wont cut it, and a chain strap is absolutely necessary. I’ve noticed this especially so during the autumn months. Here in Emerald City, during this time of the year, the umbrella goes with you everywhere. So if you’re carrying coffee or a shopping bag it makes it nearly impossible to have a hand free. Which is why I love the Gucci Marmont WOC Wallet on Chain. It’s the perfect bag for whatever occasion may be!
The Marmont Clutch is accessorized with the antique gold signature GG Guccio Gucci hardware and a long chain strap. I love the fact that this chain is removable! Or you can simply leave it attached to the bag and wrap around your wrist and carry like a wristlet clutch. The interior opens up to an according style triple compartment with ample card slot. Who has 16 cards?! Size-wise the Marmont Bag is perfect for the on-the-go essentials – lipstick, cellphone, and keys. Measures in at 5” x 8″ x 2.5”. However the depth is about half the size compared to this Gucci Soho Wallet on Chain, and it does not fit my iPhone 6 Plus comfortably. Kinda wish I considered this Gucci Marmont Clutch on Wallet before getting the Prada WOC Bag.
Recently launched in Singapore, it is exactly what the name implies, a tote that can be ‘turned around’, or in professional speak, reversed.
Made almost entirely of leather (there’s the GG monogram on one side and a polished, slightly grained surface on the other in either Red or White), it is also extremely structured which keeps it always looking smart, super lightweight which is always a bonus and depending on which size you pick, you can either carry it handheld or over the shoulder.
The only downside? There isn’t a zip on the top, which could be an issue for those iffy about keeping their personals secure when they are out and about. The easy solution? Get a bag organiser to keep everything safe or do what I do and use a smaller drawstring dust bag as my bag-within-the-bag.
