I have recently treated myself to a Louis Vuitton New Wave Camera bag in baby blue, or Bleu Porcelaine as it is officially known, which prompted me to write this post. It has been a while since I purchased my last LV piece which at the time was the iconic Alma bag. It is not that there was anything wrong with Louis Vuitton bag designs…

Gucci Jordaan Ankle Boots Review – The Shy Classic

Jan 12th, 2020 Shoes Unwrapped 14 min read

I have had a pair of Gucci Jordaan ankle boots on my mind for a while but, equally, for a long time I could not decide whether to choose them over the ever-popular Gucci fringed, double G boots.

I declare my love for Hermes Kelly 32 bag. This infatuation came quite unexpectedly and I still cannot rationalise it. As a long-time devotee of Birkin 35 due of its size, functionality and, of course, the wow factor I was not prepared that there might exist another bag that could possibly come anywhere near such a magnificent accessory.

I am not one for seasonal fads and prefer classic designs but when I first saw Gucci GG tights, I knew instantly that I absolutely had to have them. As a great fan of patterned tights, with Wolford being my absolute favourite, I found the cool and funky vibe conveyed by the brown GG logo too hard to resits. So off I went to the…

What has inspired me to write this review of Jimmy Choo Romy heels is a conversation not long ago with a work colleague who mentioned she dreamt about a pair of Choos. Why?

Have you ever considered buying a vintage Chanel bag? Well, it has not been high on the list of my shopping priorities as I always preferred fresh-out-of-the-box items. However, a few years ago I was desperately looking for a small Chanel flap bag in navy blue with a golden chain and at the time the colour was unavailable in boutiques. As my mind was firmly…
