[outfit] Casual Wednesday with Bvlgari Serpenti

I've been eyeing the Bvlgari Serpenti for a while now and have never been able to find a colour that I like, be it London, Taipei, HK, LA, they seemed to always be sold out.. so.. naturally when I saw this in the local Bvlgari store I had to make the investment!

[thots] trend: slip on trainers / sneakers for spring

Taking a look around and about at the shoe section for spring, be it Givenchy, Saint Laurent, Lanvin, Parda, McQueen, Burberry, Valention, you name it, they have either espadrilles or slip on trainers in their spring collection.

[outfit] casual tuesday with linda farrow

Being in the retail business myself, I am the kinda of customer I hate. 

If there's a product that I know will go on sale, I will never (ok.. almost never..ok.. unless I really really couldn't live without it..) pay retail. 

Gilt is a site I shop on a lot, they have different "events" everyday, and I browse through daily as if they were the morning papers. (funny how they are called events as if they were some occasion one needs to plan an outfit on prior to a wedding or the Royal Ascot - nope, it's a SALE, plain and simple S.A.L.E)  

They were having (and is still going on I think) a Linda Farrow event and I attended in my full on pajamas, it's as if we were meant to be, I found my new shades.

[outfit] anniversary dinner @ providence LA

For our wedding anniversary, I got a major surprise in the morning! 

As I mentioned last week here that I saw the casual chic Hermes Pliplat clutch when we went shopping and fell in love with it.. 

Little did I know John went and got it and surprised me as my 30th birthday/ wedding anniversary present!!! 

I am not usually a morning person but this morning was very cheery and different! ha!

[outfit] bid farewell to my new Chanel espadrille/ vintage dior

When Chanel first brought out the espadrille, I looked at it in disgust thinking it was horrible.. but then it started to grow on me, it wasn't until last year when I tried a pair on did I then realise why people were buying them and wearing them. 

The lamb skin is buttery soft, it's so nice on the skin, sooo comfortable, and it's a nice alternative to trainers and ballerinas (if you wear flats as often as I do..)

[outfit] Wore my hat and met my love - Hermes 2014 Pliplat Clutch

It was over the weekend that I felt the weather might have just been appropriate to allow me to take my hat out for a stroll to the mall..

(note to self: Irvine not ready for people shopping in hats) 

I'll try an outdoor mall next time when it pours down... 

[thots] Oscar night- favourite dresses

Watching the Oscars has been a ritual for us since we were young. Moving to the US makes this ritual even easier with no time difference; so, as always, I was stuck to the TV from the red carpets right to the end. I loved Ellen as a host, so charming and witty, and of course the record breaking selfie moment was just so fun even for us watching! (and just how photogenic is everyone.. !? no wonder they are all super stars!)
