What Goes Around Comes Around, Baby

Happy New Year 2012, Friends! Sorry for the long hiatus. I was spending Christmas holiday with my parents then had a little trip to Penang, Malaysia to celebrate New Year's Eve there. Anyway, I know this is a new year, a new beginning, yada yada... but it doesn't mean everything in our closet has to be new! In fact, I'm wearing an old top and carrying a very old satchel in this post.

How do you like my red Nina Ricci bag? It was my Mom’s from her younger years. She has this amazing collection of branded goods in her closet, which I adore. Years ago, this kind of satchel purses with long straps were very popular, but over the years, fashion changed to tote bags and shorter straps, so this particular style was considered a passé. But the wheel of fashion always rolls in circular motion, and now they’re back with a vengeance, and looking better than before!

I take a good measure to taking care of my stuff, so prior to its re-debut, I aired the inside and gave the whole surface a good swipe with baby oil that brings forth the lovely sheen. The material is of such excellent quality, it still looks fantastic after all these years. So, thanks Mom, for transferring this gorgeous satchel purse to me. I love!
Luv the bag's subtle lovely sheen! Amazing what a lil' bit of baby oil can do to bring back the lustre!
And the red color matches the wedges just lovely.
(Though it doesn't suit my silver toe nail polish, haha!)
 I love!

Dear LeeAnne,

Im so sorry that I have been terribly rude and haven't replied your nearly one month message until now. I have been away on long vacation during the festive season and have been completely off the cyber world.

I personally would like to say thank you to you for leaving a very sweet and heartfelt comment on my blog page. Again very sorry, this reply is awfully long due.

I agree with you, a lot of things that we desire and would love to portray are not necessarily suitable or fit in our work place and a blog spot is a perfect way to channel those thoughts.

Anyways, I would also like to comment that how brilliant is your red nina ricci bag. I think it is even more special the fact that you have inherited with from your mother. It is in an impeccable condition too.
