Happy Halloween

Wishing you all the fun and cheers of a happy Halloween. :-)

Ghouls' Night Out
To call forth this gathering, use glue dots to stick construction-paper eyes and mouths onto white tissue-paper bells, then drape them with cheesecloth.

There comes a time in every guy’s life (aka, a new season) when it’s time to swap that beloved bag for something a bit nicer. Fret not. RRL’s (‘Double RL’, Ralph Lauren’s high-end, vintage-inspired line) insistence on premium materials and superb construction pays dividends in guaranteeing that this messenger bag is both hardy and stylish.
Made in very, very small numbers, this utilitarian design is actually based on the original ‘Type 3’ leather satchel used by USPS (United States Postal Service) postmen in the 1960s. With enough space to store all your papers and a laptop, this practical piece is ideal for your busy days. After all, if the style worked for years to deliver the mail, there has to be something to the bag’s functionality, right? :-)
(RRP US$895)


The cat who's willing to risk every one of his nine lives for one more ride.
Have a fun weekend. :-)

Let’s face it: Who doesn’t have a bit of addiction when it comes to prints? We certainly do, and the deliciously rich and detailed top from Diane von Fuestenberg -with its chromatic collage of dutch blue, powder pink and mint- is no exception.
Let the happy shades take centre stage – wear yours with skinny jeans for a fuss-free look.
Alternatively, team with a sleek pencil skirt and hard-hitting sandals for a workplace take that’s at once feminine and graphic.
(RRP US$325)
