NAVIGATE

with all of my ghosts

August 11, 2009

I don't normally post an outfit shot including my purse since my collection is rather lame, however, it's time to kick it up a notch. I'm also not really a fan of Jimmy Choo. For me, the label goes hand-in-hand with Newport Beach cougars (No offense. For those: cougars = older lady going for younger men.), but after a double date with Jeff and his girlfriend who carried a rather cute Jimmy Choo bag, I started to reconsider my judgements on the brand.

Low and behold a gift from James and Jeff! The same bag that Alyssa had, but in a smaller version. So stoked. I can't stop touching it... ooh buttery..





Also wearing a vintage dress that I've had in my closet but HATED the dowdy floor length. I took a pair of scissors to the dress and fell in love with the simplicity of my new throw-on dress.

Belt: Vintage | Shoes: Derek Lam | Dress: Vintage

Thanks a million Jeff and James! You should stop by his blog and tell him how awesome he is, and James will be lurking the comments with his name in it.

  11. Love the whole outfit, but the bag is fab, fab, fab!!

  12. Fabulous! I love how you shortened the dress! And that belt and bag...to die for!

    by the way! I just started a new blog called Barefoot Diaries. It's a hodge podge of quotes, photos, fashion, my daily activities, and other random ramblings I decide to post. I'd love it if you checked it out! And, please, bear with me. I'm still getting the hang of this whole blogging thing so it's not incredible just yet :)

  17. Wow, who would've thought Jimmy Choo could come up with a bag this fab. I totally know the types of women you're referring to when you say "cougars," I visit the OC quite frequently as well and they're everywhere, all botoxed up and such >_<

    Btw, the print of your dress looks like the all saints one below, was that a coincidence? :)

  18. Ooh I love the crescent shape (would that be a hobo bag? I don't know...) of the bag plus the hardware is really cool, wooden handles!

  19. cute dress!! and the purse of course!!

  21. I really like the way you wore the dress, because florals can be too trendy sometimes but the way you wore it wasn't trendy at all. Is that the mom bag? Either way, it's nice!

  22. i have a few dowdy floor length vintage dresses still waiting to be given to the tailor for some altering but thanks to you now I know what to do with it! just CHOP IT OFF and SAVE LOTSA MONEY!

    Thanks!

    Not to ruin the bag for you, but its fake. I bought the exact same bag in Thailand last year for $30. Jimmy Choo doesn't not make that bag.

    Anon, not to sound superficial and materialistic, but it is real:

    Here is it on Overstock.com:
    http://www.overstock.com/Clothing-Shoes/Jimmy-Choo-Maia-Calf-Hobo-Bag/3977176/product.html
    A few weeks back, it was also on Net-A-Porter.

    But since that isn't enough evidence, I suppose, I can at least justify for myself that it is real since I covered the remaining balance of the purse by handing my money to the Jimmy Choo sales associate inside of Jimmy Choo at South Coast Plaza (a mall in Orange County).

  38. OMG i love all,your dress, belt and handbag!
