STYLE FOR LESS: Juicy Couture's Velour Bowler Handbag vs. Women's Bag

THE SPLURGE: Juicy Couture's Velour Bowler Handbag (around USD190 or Php7,600*)

Juicy Couture makes the ultimate dream kikay bag (in my opinion, anyway)!  That luscious velour cover -- it's cute but still functional.  Just thinking about it makes me drool.  This adorable little number, JC's velour bowler handbag can be yours for only USD190 or Php7,600 (estimate.)

THE STEAL: Woman's similar JC Bag (Php299)

Woman, a store located in Glorietta, Makati, sells women's clothing and shoes, among other things.  As much as I could tell, they sell mostly factory surplus items.  There are times, however, that I come across unexpected finds like this Juicy Couture-"like" bag in their inventory.

I say "-like" because, personally, I think this bag is a fake.  Don't ask me how I came with that conclusion.  Let's just say, it's not as well-made as a JC bag is supposed to be.  Plus its really dirty.  If you don't mind all of these though, this bag sells for only Php299.  Buy at your own risk.  =)

  1. People tend to forget that they can still be fashionable without spending a lot that's why i love your article! thanks for sharing this...

  2. @bag studios: I agree. I'm sure a lot are trying to stick to their budgets so its always a good thing to be money-wise. =)

  3. I totally agree with you... sometimes i even feel chills in my spine whenever I see the price tags of those luxurious bags. A girl should know when its time to be practical!

PH | Bang's Tony & Jackey Beauty Salon's Aqua Volume Rebond

I've always had ruly, unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember, hence the introduction of rebonding services here in PH is a blessing.  I've been having my hair rebonded or relaxed once a year since 2002.  It's an expense that I make sure is always included in the yearly luxury budget.

Whereas before I used to have my hair rebonded at a David's Salon (since they always deliver consistently great results), I had to stop and look to other establishments when they eventually jacked up their prices (what used to cost me Php3,000 is now priced at Php5,000 to Php6,000, depending on the branch!).  Too much for my already hurting wallet.  Hence, the need to try other salons.  I've been happy with the results, so far.

The one thing though. that always gets me though is how lifeless and limp my hair tends to look when newly treated.  It's always the case wherever I have my tresses done.  It will look it's best at least a month or 2 after treatment.  It was onl…

Style for Less: Ballerina Flats (Tory Burch vs Kamiseta)

Have you ever noticed how fashionable high-end items just keep on being reinvented by some other brand.  Well after having my eyes checked for fear of seeing doubles (normal daw sabi ni Doc), I decided to scour through the malls in search of fashion doppelgangers.

THE SPLURGE: Tory Burch's Reva ballerina flats (USD195 or around Php9,000)

When well-known American fashion designer Tory Burch released her line of Reva ballerina flats, it was an instant hit.  Known for its incredibly comfortable material and structure with a nicely padded sole and an elasticized heel, these babies made a killing and everyone wanted one.

I've said it once and I'll say it again, woe to the newly married woman who has, for years, have gotten so used to her surname only to find that a single (wedding) day, will change this familiarity forever.

I have to admit, it was not easy for me to adapt to a new surname, due mainly for professional reasons.  Throughout my profession career, I have been known by my maiden name and to have to inform all my contacts of the change was, well, too tiresome.  And so I decided to go the hypenated route and I eventually ended up with 2 surnames.  Such was the compromise!  =)
