THE GREAT CHANEL WEEKEND

It was an amazing weekend to say the least. I spent the weekend catching up and going around with my dear friend Anj [don’t you just love her rings??  Gorgeous!!] and I guess saying “we painted the town red” is not enough. The past 2 days has been spent brunching and shopping all over Singapore’s main shopping thoroughfares and as such, when you combine me and another manic shopper, damage was done. That said, I think I can safely say that it did more good than bad; soothing out our work weary selves with enough fashion sustenance to last a few months [I think more so Anj than me LOL! I still want a pair of shoes – you’ll find out later what I mean]

Spring-Summer 2012 is in full bloom in stores and we got a taste of some of the finest pieces such as these gorgeous printed sandals from Proenza Schouler

…to these delectable calf-skin [though I seriously thought they were lamb because of the buttery soft treatment!] Chanel Quilted Sneakers

…to the past 2 days’ purchases such as these gorgeous Céline Shades…

and our belle de jour, Anj’s Chanel Chic Quilt from the Spring-Summer 2012 collection.

I absolutely adore this bag.  It’s like a pumped up version of the Classic Flap with its buttery soft calfskin leather to its gleaming sheen and of course the same versatility in terms of usage. Oh it’s more economical to boot! Available in 2 sizes, I prefer the one Anj bought vs. the bigger piece as the bigger one loses its semblance to the Classic Flap.

Well, more stories to come about this amazing weekend. I’m still in the hunt for Spring-Summer 2012 statement shoes – contemplating on these gorgeous Chanel Quilted Sneakers or Prada’s Kiltie Golf Shoes that are unfortunately out of stock in my size everywhere. Darn it! Updates definitely to follow if my luck permits it but for now, I must bid you all adieu as it’s time for me to hit the hay sack! Seriously poofed and I’m up for another challenging workweek. So till the next update then!
