Happy Holidays!


My work has risen to mountainous new heights and I shall be spending Christmas weekend pounding away at the keyboard trying to get stuff for my paper out (it's about bloody time to graduate, goddammit!). But I just wanted to wish everyone a good holiday season and thank you for being such good readers over the last year, particularly putting up with my bellyaching over the state of affairs and my rambling, tortuous posts. I hope your Christmas is filled with lots of love, ham, chocolates and all things nice.

  1. Merry Christmas! Sadly, I'll also be spending the holidays churning out conference proposals, dissertation chapter, and a lecture. Boo! I'll be thinking of you!

  5. @Amanda hehe, there will be a lot of Ding Tai fung dumpling goodness for the boyfriend's first proper dinner in SH! :)

    i think you've commented on this before, but would you mind offering your review of the PS1 that you have? does it still irk you quality-wise for the same reasons? feel free to email me at mlle dot sophiex at gmail if you don't feel like writing a lengthy comment reply. thanks!

  6. @miss sophie No, no I think it would be good for me to reply here just in case any one else is wondering.

    My problem with the PS1 is that the leather is really slouchy and thin and I find that I can't really hold too much in the bag without it looking cheap-ish because it sags in the middle. The biggest thing that irks me though, is that since I have the black PS1, the buckles and hooks are enameled, and they started peeling off after 3 months of use. According to the Proenza Schouler CS, it's part of the "charm". Ack! For the price, it's absolutely not worth it, in my opinion. If you want to get one, get the navy or khaki/green, but it's still pretty steep for $1600. Hope that helps! =)
