boy_chanel_handbag-sheet.png.fashionImg.hi.png
From the latest collection of Chanel (read our review here)
This is embroidered Boy Chanel is an exceptional piece. We love the embroidered look which was a part of the entire collection and can make any outfit look feminine.
GG Marmont Velvet Chain Shoulder Bag

The soft structure, the over large flap size and the cute heart in the stitching behind are some of the reasons we loved this bag. Also it breaks the traditional monotony of black with this beautiful Petrol Blue Velvet colour that we just love!
Louis Vuitton Wight

It’s a great day to evening bag with an amazing Bordeaux down the centre that just adds to the elegant look of the bag. The Gold chain handle are adjustable making it either a cross body or a shoulder bag thus making sure you get your moneys worth. And even though it might look small it is very spacious
Prada Cahier Bag

This Calf Leather Bag with animal print details and an oversize snake gold buckle in the front just stole our heart. We love all the little details and the size is just right for a shoulder bag. The two compartments in the bag make it easy to store the essentials when going out and with a Black and Gold combination you can never go wrong!
 
Chloe Faye Shoulder Bag

We loved the colour and the shape of the Faye Shoulder Bag. It has a cool 70s vibe to it. The ring loop with hook and chain is something that caught our eye and makes this bag stand out. It transitions amazingly well from day to evening!

Bag Organisation: Top 4 Tips & Tricks

Hello bag addicts!
If you are anything like me then your entire world is in your bag and if that is the case
that means, it’s most often messy cramped and feels like it weighs a ton; in addition it gets dirtier too fast.
So I was going through the same thing. But then,  I decided that I am going to address this head on!
Before I list my Top 4 Tips & Tricks down here’s a bit about the type of bags and things I carry:
– Totes or large bags
– Everything from chapsticks to hair brushes, make up, books and pens for meetings, money perfume, coffee cup (YASS!), loose change, keys, jewellery, sanitizer, chewing gum, headphones, cellphone, charger, sunglasses etc. my essentials.

If the above is also what you carry in your bag then below are my Top 4 Tips & Tricks to sort our ever messy bag:
1. You need to separate and group your items into categories:
This helps you group them together and put them into various pouches, this way you can access them easily.
2. Separate your essentials:
I have a wallet in which I keep cash and coins and in a separate card holder I have essentials like my Id proof that is easily visible so I don’t have to keep removing it and thus in turn loosing it. I also keep my Starbucks card in the card holder for easy access. Don’t forget to keep a bit of emergency cash in it as it is so easy to just shift that into a small bag for the night.
3. Ensure you have compartmentalised wallet.
Even though we have segregated the id proof and Starbucks card into the card holder a compartmentalised wallet helps organise your cash/ coins and cards effectively to ensure that you find whatever you want whenever you require it.
4. Keep your makeup separate:
Here’s what happened, when I thought of segregating my stuff in pouches I got a pouch which stored my basic regular makeup, cards as well as house keys. A wallet which had my cash, important credit card/debit card etc.
Disaster struck, my lip gloss leaked and my Starbucks card, house keys were completely covered in icky yucky shiny gloss.
Keep two pouches or get a pouch which has compartments inside for you to separate stuff.
We love amazon collection of pouches!

10 Must Have Accessories Every Man Should Be Carrying

We all need to get our accessories game on. So we at Wabisabiluxury have compiled a quick style guide of the must have accessories every man should be carrying this year!
Even though the number of accessories available for men are much lesser than that for women, we thought that shouldn’t stop you from looking your stylish best. So this list should help you look stylish all year long!

 

1) Watch: To add that oomph factor to any look. The perfect watch is a must! Though everyone is now moving towards the digital watch we at WabiSabiLuxury find a winding watch very romantic.

If you are looking to invest in a new watch might we suggest: the Rolex or the Breitling

2) Sunglasses: The sun is out & now it’s the perfect time to find a great pair of shades. The most important thing before buying a pair of glasses is determining your face shape whether it is round, oblong, square, triangular or oval. Once you have figured out your face shape, next step is picking glasses that will compliment your features.

If you are planning to buy a new pair of shades, make sure that you buy either Ray Ban or Barkley.

3) Belt: Whether it is a casual wear or a formal wear, a look isn’t complete without one thing i.e. Belt. Be it a job interview or an important business meeting where you can’t really show off your wardrobe, a good belt is enough to show off your fashion credentials. They could be worn with jeans, chinos, shorts and trousers, makes it one of the important things every man should have in his closet.

No brands comes close to Gucci and Dolce & Gabbana when it comes to men’s belt.

4) Wallet: How about keeping the one who makes it affordable for you to look stylish at a classy place? Yes, we are talking about money here. How about having a neat, stylish & classy place for all the credit cards, atm cards, visiting cards, identity cards you own? If you’ve had the same wallet since ages, perhaps it is time to invest in something a little more elegant & presentable.

There are a lot of wallet brands in the market right now but Coach & Hermes are our picks.

5) Cuff Links: Cuff links is an often ignored element of style amongst men. A man can give his look an edge over others at workplace or even at the parties or events by simply having classy cuff links around his wrists.

Finding an attractive yet simple cufflink is a tough job. So we are trying to make it easier for you guys with our picks.

6) Pocket Square: Pocket Square adds a sense of gentlemanism to a man’s outfit. Pocket squares are often not given as much importance as it should get. The fabric of pocket square should look rich & depending on your look, there are different ways to fold a pocket square to match your mood.

If you are looking for a perfect pocket square, make sure that it’s Alexander Olch.

7) Bag: All the men out there, keep your style game on point and just like your t-shirts & shirts, have a collection of different bags can be carried anywhere to enhance your look. Why spending so much effort to look sharp only to ruin it all with an average-looking bag? Be it a lavish leather bag for office or a funky bag to college, add that little extra to your look.

Here are our favourite strap bags that will never fail to grab people’s attention. It’s time to look sharper.

8) Scarf: A lot of men think that scarves are for ladies & they avoid even being in the 100 meter radius of the scarves section in the malls. Men need to understand that it does not only keep your neck warm but a simple rectangle of fabric could do wonders to your overall look.

You could get scarves anywhere with different big as well as local brands but these are our personal favourites.

9) Pen: We understand that digitalization has replaced mobiles with pens & there is no need of a pen to note down anything but will a mobile phone ever replace the man’s look that a fountain pain in his shirt pocket gives? We don’t think so.

Have a look at these fountain pens which will perfectly fit into your shirt pockets & enhance your overall look.

10) Socks: The best thing about socks is that you are allowed to experiment with them with the least amount of risk of someone noticing your experiment. When it comes to formal wears, socks add a simplicity to your look.
