Introducing Niels Peeraer

Niels Peeraer has been one of my favourite accessories designer of all time. It was immediate love when I coincidentally came across one of his bags on a blog years ago. It was the bow buckle bag in the medium size nude color. Even today, I just still can't stop mesmerizing over his design. Since his first collection in 2011, Peeraer has gained much fame for his easily recognizable signature look. The accessories are a perfect balance between something feminine and yet masculine. I love the fact that his pieces are so adorable yet so edgy at the same time. He truly has a talent to capture my heart. When the collection first came out, it was literally impossible to find a piece in North America; however, seasons later now, his work can be more easily reached through stockists around the world. Even in my own boutique, Room 29, I carry selections from his impeccable collection.

Celine Trapeze Versus Luggage

The Celine bags have been one of the most sought after bags over the past few years. Many times, I have been very tempted to buy a beauty for myself, and ended up in endless thought that I missed the purchase. With prices increasing yearly, I would suggest those of you who want one, to get one ASAP! But many of you, like me, may be debating between whether to get the Trapeze or Luggage, so I thought I would set out a post to weight the differences and pick the winner!

H&M x Minju Kim

I normally don't post about clothing, but I have been totally obsessed with Minju Kim that I thought that I had to write it down, document it, and remember it! I just totally lover her collection for H&M, that I actually paid $25 of shipping to get a piece from her collaboration with H&M (and I'm usually the type that don't like to pay for shipping...). I really can't speak too much about the collection, I think the pictures just speak for themselves. I love everything about it from the colours, fabric, patterns to the cocoon shapes and oversized nature. Honestly, if you don't have your hand on a piece, you are really missing out. I definitely think that she'll be an upcoming designer and prices are only going to be more expensive from here out. You can check out the video by clicking for more...

Balenciaga Fall Winter 2013 Colors

I really have to say that these swatches (colours) from the fall/winter collection of Balanciaga is not very winterish with the exception of one or two. During the fall/winter, you are definitely expecting something more dull, deep and dark. However, the new Balanciaga swatches seems a little big bright. They even left some of the same swatches as the spring/summer collection (e.g. Mauve and Rose BonBon). Despite all of this, I still have to say that some of the colours with a grey undertone is still to die for!

Favourite Miu Miu Pre-Fall 2013 Shoes

                                         $790 USD                                                           $585 USD

I have to admit that I have deeply fallen in love with these Miu Miu shoes. It's definitely something about that point and something about that black sleekness. If I had to choose from the two though, I think I would prefer the slipper version (to the right) instead of the oxford version (to the left). I mean...cap toe has been over and done with and I'm more in love with a simple black sleek pair instead. I can just imagine all the different outfits I can pair with the "smoking" slipper (literally, that's the name of the shoe!). I think this winter will be more about the simple lines and shapes...and of course a boyish/rockerish look, making the smoking slipper the perfect pair for any outfit.

The Shourouk Bags

I fell in love with the Shourouk bag a year back. I think the main reason is that it's so unique and the jewels on it is just stunning and full of amazing details. Every time I look at the bag, I just want to own it. However, the bag is a little harder to get as it is not carried by a lot of stores. At least in Toronto, you probably can't find this bag at any retailer. However, with the magic of the internet, you can actually order the bag from the official online boutique of Shourouk. The large version (as shown in the picture above) costs $750 to $900 Euro while the smaller version cost $525 to $650 Euro, depending on the colour.

Videos: My Handbag Collection

I don't have a very big collection but I have collected a few designer bags over the past four years. The majority of my bags were bought during university when I didn't have a lot of expenses and was able to spend money more freely. Since I've started working, I have bought a few bags but I am not limiting myself to purchase only one or two bags a year (as long as I am within a specific budget that I have set for the year). I have to say that my favourite bags are the Louis Vuitton Neverfull, Prada blue bag, and Balanciaga City. Please subscribe to my YouTube account MacchaDiary. Please see part 2 of the video below.

Mirrored/Metallic Shoes for 2013

Mirrored/Metallic silver shoes are a necessity for the spring/summer 2013 season. These shoes were an essential part of a number of runways and street fashion during fashion week. However, you can see that they do look extremely seasonal and it'll be hard to wear in the future. If you think you can pull it off and don't mind spending a few hundred on something like this, then go for it! Below is a list of the brands, names and prices of the shoes in the above picture:
