Camellia Bloom

Once upon a time in my life, I was obsessed with camellia brooches from Chanel but the sad part is I hardly use them.. and that is bad at so many level.  

But times like today, I am sort of glad I went crazy and bought them because they can be used to spice up boring ensemble like this!  I thought the beige/sandy tone of the whole outfit just washed me out and by pairing darker color bag and brooch helped bringing in some 'life' and color to this look.  

It would be nicer if the camellia is in the same color as the bag, wouldn't it?  Oh, bugger!

  4. I adore your bag. I never considered Balenciagas before because I was worried about colour fading and the vulnerable lambskin. Yours is the new calfskin ones right? Is it more durable?

    1. Hi, there! I have a few Bals in lamb skin plus this one in calf and yes, I have to say this one is tougher but not by far. The lamb Bal is durable too and so far I do not have problems with color fading or anything in that line, not even the corners! My black Bal is the oldest and the leather is so supple and the black gets darker and shinier with time. I think the key is not to over used the bag, any bag for that matter, in my opinion :)
