i am a bag lady. i LOVE bags. every girl has a favorite type of accessory and bags are mine.

having said that i have bag wishlist. i recently got the bag that was number one on my list thanks to my loving boyfriend (yay). my number two bag is the balenciaga first bag which seems to be on the arm of every celebrity. i love how each bag comes in a variety of colors, i want them all! but thats unrealistic so i chose some of my favorties:

this is the holiday first bag

this is the regular first bag in storm

i love these two, i’m not sure which one i like more! i love the holiday first bag because its so different from the others due to its multitude of colors but then again i also like the traditional type of balenciaga and storm is such a great color! hmmm.

i also like the balenciaga clutches! my favorite is the giant envelope:

i can’t choose which colors i like the best! my favorite color is pink so i wanted a balenciaga in framboise (as pictured below) but i have too many pink bags as it is and this would be my chance to finally deviate away from my pink obsession. i really like the one worn by lindsay lohan (also pictured below), the balenciaga shoes she’s wearing are none too shabby either!

i love purple because its close to pink BUT its not! here’s a nice one worn by lauren conrad:

i love how it can be worn dressy and casual. and i absolutely love how the color pops. i like loud colors so a balenciaga is the perfect excuse to go crazy on color! for example i don’t think i would ever wear neon green (i stick to olive and jade) but after seeing this balenciaga worn by nicky hilton (pictured below) i’m starting to see the color in a brand new light:

i love these vibrant colors, i don’t understand why anyone would wear brown or black balenciagas! well, i guess they’re nice too but i think people who are going to buy a balenciaga should take advantage of their plethora of beautiful colors. nicole richie has the right idea:

i eternally envy heidi montag and her bag collection. among her many chanels, louis vuittons, and birkens she has a sprinkle of balenciagas as well. i love how she accessorizes without being too matchy matchy (big pet peeve of mine!):

however i don’t like her gigantic bags, its just overdoing it:

although i love the colorful balenciagas i can’t deny how nice the white and grey balenciagas look, especially the pebble! i feel like they would go with a lot of outfits and not take too much attention away from what you’re wearing. i like the white one worn by lauren conrad (pictured below) and the grey one worn by chiara ferragni (also pictured below):

so to conclude this long discussion on balenciaga bags, i STILL don’t know what i want! actually after all this i’m even more undecided! i know i want a colorful one but WHICH color? this will continue to torment me. sigh.


calendar bracelet

December 21, 2009

so i was watching E! News the other day and they had a segment on cute gift ideas for the girls in your life. and i saw these really cute bracelets by dalla nonna:

they are calendar charm bracelets! you choose the birth month of the person you are getting this for and get a charm reflecting that month. then you choose the day they were born and select the type of stone you like best (there are seven types) and that stone is put on the day of the month your giftee was born. the bracelet’s strap is faux suede (you can choose from seven different colors!) and the calendar charms are made from either silver, yellow gold, rose gold, or white gold. there are also two additional small charms that are on either side of the calendar charm.

i think this is such a great bracelet! i love that you can personalize it so much by choosing every little detail about the bracelet! if i were to get one made for myself i think i would choose a blue suede strap with the rose gold charm with a light green sapphire stone. i’m practically foaming at the mouth thinking of how nice it would be! i love how the rose gold looks:

as you can see above, they also have necklaces available but i personally like the idea of them being on suede bracelets. the only flaw with this bracelet is the PRICE. the bracelets start at $400 and go up to $590! so yeah it may not be that affordable but it IS a really cute bracelet (which was my original point).

so this is my first attempt at actually starting a blog.

over the years i have attempted numerous times to keep some kind of written account of my life. i bought many diaries and journals but all them are empty. the lucky ones have maybe one or two entries but thats as far as i’ve ever gotten. i’m very impulsive but i never stick to any one thing. i consider myself a half lit firework, i’m very productive and excited to do something at first but i fizzle out fast. but no more!

i want to stick to this blog and be able to look back on it in a few years and remember my thoughts. i guess with the new year coming up, i can call this my resolution.

ok so to get started i will talk about myself. i don’t care if no one is reading this, i’m doing it for me! so lets see…i am currently an undergrad majoring in Biology. when i graduate i hope to go to medical school and become a doctor. i love art and history. i enjoy going to museums and examining them thoroughly. i try to follow the evolving world of fashion by watching the runway shows from the most prominent designers twice a year during spring and fall fashion weeks. i occasionally watch shows from new designers but i like getting my favorites out of the way before doing that. i follow pop culture whichever way possible because i don’t like being clueless about things in social situations.

thats all i can think of thats worth mentioning for now. there’s much more to come!
