Posted in Gucci with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 26, 2010 by Alan + Mei-Mei the pug

Ever since the fashion genius Tom Ford transformed Gucci from traditional old money chic (sometimes a little boring) to this ultra glam, rock star, trend-setting fashion house; their fashion accessories & handbags has capture our attention season after season.

I just LOVE this clutch from their spring-summer 2010 collection! Minimalist chic, sleek & clean lines also it’s bigger than the usual clutch size ( Gurl! admit it! may of you are like me, we all have some extra “Baggages” mmmkay?! a little pea size clutch ain’t gonna fit all my stuff ! haha)

GUCCI Sigrid Oversize Clutch
(Available @ Saksfifthavenue.com & Gucci.com)


This fabulous clutch comes in glossy white or black patent leather. The shine from the patent leather makes it perfect for going out with the girls for drinks in the city, and the larger size of this bag also makes it a bit casual that can be use during the day! I just LOVE the asymmetrical flap closure with the super chic metal & enamel detailing! The asymmetry of the flap gives just a hint of a geometric feel without being too avan garde.

This oversized clutch measures 15.25″ W x 6.25″ H x 1″ D, it will go with all of the outfits in your closet & adds a touch of “Uptown chic & Downtown cool” look to any looks!

Dior has done it again! Besides their fabulous clothing & accessories collections, even their AD campaigns are now captivate our imaginations! Directed by Olivier Dahan , featuring French actress Marion Cotillard, Dior has released a mini film of its own – a lady James Bond adventure. For this ad campaign, Dior has invited 2008 Oscar winning French actress Marion Cotillard as its advertisement spokesperson as well as the famous photographer Peter Lindbergh to take shots. Taking a fancy to Marion’s noble temperament, so Dior selected her to be the model who can match with the new Lady Dior Cannage Bag perfectly.

“Chapter 1: A Lady Noire Affair”. The film shows off the men in perfectly pressed Dior Homme suits, and Marion Cotillard rushing up the Eiffel Tower in amazing black heels, distinctly shaped “Diorette” sunglasses and the Lady Dior Handbag. Dior has cleverly put their best selling handbag on display with a short film and the episodes will continue. I’ll be blissfully await the next video made in New York “Lady Rouge”.

Below you can view “The Lady Noire Affair”, which was released in May. Do not expect to get all the answers right away. If you pay careful attention there are clues provided. So who will save lady Dior? We will have to wait and see.

It’s said that the reason why this bag is so famous is kinda related with our familiar Princess Diana. “In 1995, at the Cezanne Art Exhibition sponsored by Dior Corporation, the former French First Lady Bernadette Chirac sent Princess Diana a new model of Christian Dior bags as a gift.” Then Dior immediately named this unreleased bag “Lady Dior” – gracefully to the name extremely. And Diana also liked this bag so much that she carried it in many important official occasions, then this bag has fired up.

This latest Lady Dior Cannage Bag 2009 is crafted by the soft supple suede which sends out a light lambency, patterned with cannage embroidery and logo cannage jacquard lining. With unique cannage geometric surface and two hemicycle handles, it’s also attached with silver Dior logo metal hard ware and the metal protective feet.

The Fendi Peek-a-Boo bag is an “underground” celebrity it bag. It’s a pretty low-key handbag, , but it just screams luxury.

We’ve been reporting many different style of the Fendi Peekaboo Satchel in our blog, but this new jersey peekaboo is one of my favorite one, because it has a very similar shape to the Hermes Kelly bag, but this Fendi Peekaboo satchel has a classic shape without seeming “snoby” and bourgeois like the Hermes Kelly…. and it’s way more hip and easy to carry. Don’t get me wrong i love Hermes, but compare to Fendi’s peekaboo, I like this bag more, it’s just my opinion.

Dior Granville Satchel Tote Is a Must Have Bag !

Posted in Dior with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 24, 2009 by Alan + Mei-Mei the pug

I’ve always love Christian Dior’s fashion, and their accessories are just fabulous! They are must have for all the fashonistas! Today when I browse the Dior official site, I found the newly released Dior Granville Collection & there comes a Dior bag that I just need to have it!

Available at Luxe-Gifts.com

You must be wondering why this bag is named “Granville”? well, Monsieur Christian Dior was born in Granville, Normandy. I find the hand stitching of the “cannage” detail so beautiful! because they are slightly irregular and they’re 3 dementional. The detail is achieve through pin tucking the leather so it is actually a part of the bag rather than applied, so the intersections of the lines are a bit off. You would think this is a flaw but it is done so well that it is just a perfect example of DIOR’s superior quality and worksmanship.

Of course, silver-tone hardware completes its luxurious totality, which you can find on the loops and on the hanging DIOR charms. It has a zip along the top, and the hour-glass shape can actually be folded over, just like on other convertible bags we have these days. This gives you an option of whether carrying it as a handbag through its top handles with rings or as a shoulder bag through its detachable strap.

What I love the most is the multi compartments inside of the bag! The interior of the bag was divided into 3 large compartments by the big fully top sip center divider pocket compartment. so you can fit all of your stuff in and still looking stylish & fabulous!

Here is a photo of Demi Moore carrying the LARGE size granville

Even tho Ashton is super hot but I still can’t keep my eyes off Demi’s fabulous DIOR Granville

We hope you enjoy the review of this fabulous DIOR Granville satchel/tote bag, and if you like the bag, we’ve just received the size Medium Granville directly from DIOR and now available at our very own online store Luxe-Gifts.com ! come check out the bag, it will be the best investment purse you’ll ever get!

Untill next time, be well and look fabulous !

FENDI Patent Leather & Gold Color Embossed Leather Lining Peekaboo Satchel

Posted in Fendi with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 23, 2009 by Alan + Mei-Mei the pug

What’s the first thing that comes into your mind when you think about the famous Italian fashion house “FENDI” ? those big “FF” logos all over the place right? If you love their logos then you can’t get enough of it ( Just like I am such a CHANEL “CC” logo freak! haha) but if you hated their “FF” logo then you probably would totally disregard any of the FENDI handbags.

BUT!!! Since in Spring/Summer 2009 collection continues to Fall/Winter 2009 and 2010, Fendi has came up with all different type of the new “IT BAG” name “Peekaboo Bag”. It’s sophisticated & understated! all the bells & whistles are inside of the bag! so when you close the bag all you see just a understated handbag but when you leave it open, the top droops down and reveals all different types of beautiful lining inside of the bag. From beaded “FF logo” to Fur & snakeskin lining!

Here is one of the many beautiful “Peekaboo” bag, this one is the Black Patent Leather Peekaboo with embossed Gold color checkerboard lining. (Available at Luxe-Gifts.com)

This crinkled patent Peek-A-Boo bag is so understated and ladylike that I almost can’t believe it’s Fendi. I mean, where are all the bells and whistles? There’s not even any snakeskin on this bag! The truth is that this bag doesn’t need anything extra to make it work. It has an old fashioned, sophisticated charm that defies trends.

The simple shape of the bag combined with the sleek patent material and the pronounced seams creates a sharply tailored look that will work for a lot of women. For edgier fashionistas, the Peek-A-Boo would make a great bag for the office, but I think a lot of women will find that this is a highly versatile, high quality accessory that can coordinate with a lot of looks.

The details on this bag are so luxurious and plentiful that it’s hard to know where to begin. The inside of the Peek-A-Boo is made of a fabulous laser cut suede with gold paint that will make you want to reach into your purse at every possible opportunity. The gold metal hardware is understated and beautiful. And the interior compartment of the bag is ingeniously divided into two sections, which each have pockets of their own.

Untill next time, be well and look fabulous !

Posted in Fendi with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 9, 2009 by Alan + Mei-Mei the pug

Fendi keeps making me sad. I want to like Fendi, I want to embrace their bags for the past couple seasons, but I rarely find myself doing so. Especially seeing their ugly Fendi “B” bag, makes me loose faith in this fabulous fashion house…..

(This is the super ugly “B” bags!!! barf !)

Recently, Fendi is sneaking in with some bags that we are liking, which gives us hope that Fendi is trying to get back into our hearts. The Fendi Peek-a-Boo Bag is the most recent popular bag from Fendi, being seen in many renditions and carried by celebrities. Let’s take a closer look at the Peek a Boo.

Fendi’s exquisite black and gray dégradé leather Peek-a-boo bag with a decadent gold leather interior is a subtle way to display your style wealth. Carry this beautifully crafted investment piece open to accent a professional ensemble with a flash of hot metallics.

Black goat leather tote with burnished silver-tone metal hardware. Fendi tote has a dégradé black and anthracite effect at front and back, handle at top, logo-embossed turnlock fastenings at top, pouch compartments at front and back, push-stud fastening straps at each side, a long detachable shoulder strap, internal zipped compartment and has a degradé gold and black leather and black suede lining.


Width 15″ / 37cm
Height 12″ / 31cm
Depth 7″ / 17cm
Handle Drop 5″ / 12cm

When I saw this bag I quickly ordered 2! So I can keep one for myself and one for our lucky customer at Luxe-Gifts.com. It’s a limited edition now only available at Luxe-Gifts.com for $2,650

There is a similar one on Nordstrom it has the same silver metalic effect on both front & back but inside is all suede lining and the clasp at the top opening is gold instead of this one of the kind hand etched silver antique silver finished as the one on Luxe-Gifts.com

Treat yourself with this fabulous classic bag that will last you for a long time!! I am glad I got mine !! woo hoo!
