Another Lululemon All Tied Up Tank Scoop

Since I love the white Lululemon All Tied Up Tank Scoop that I got, I decided to get the Heathered Grey version as well.  It was sold out online already, but I got a brand new one on ebay for the same price as the "we made too much" price.  It's size 10 though lol.  But hey, the white one is size 8 and fits just fine.  I love that you have a lot of control of how the tank will fit you since you tie it yourself. 

The size 10 definitely scoops more than the size 8, both in the front and armpit areas.  But once I tie it in the back to a point where it's fitted enough, it looks pretty good I think!


Similar to the white one, the bottom hem of this one is metallic as well.  But it's wider, and much more subtle in this one since it's the same color as the rest of the tank:

Here's a close up of the back and side:

Pretty happy with this one!  It will go with everything too.  I actually found a very similar design from Under Armour that's on sale right now for only $23 now - the Take A Chance Tank:

Pretty cute!  It's pretty much the exact same style as the non-scoop version of the Lulu tank.  I am tempted to get it because this is such a cool style!  I love the open back.  The reviews say to size down though.  So here's more colors and sizes of this tank at Dick's, though not on sale.  And more at Amazon but price and sizes vary.  Anyway, good alternative to try out since Lulu is sold out!

Fendi Peekaboo Monster Bag!!!

At last, I pulled the trigger and got myself the Fendi Peekaboo Monster Bag that I've been obsessed with foreeever!  I've seriously been wanting this bag for the longest time, ever since the first moment I laid eyes on it.  But the price tag of $5300 is a bit hard to swallow!  But I finally talked myself into it.  I've never really spent that much money on a single bag.  My last high priced bag was my Balanciaga City bag which was a birthday gift from my bf, and that was 3 years ago.  Bags just don't get me as excited as shoes do lol.  So, since I finally found a bag that I absolutely LOVE and dream about, I was finally like:  Ok, let's do it!  None of my other bags even come close to this price tag, so this is my first "ultra luxury" bag lol.  Here's the link for this bag on the Fendi website.

Of course, Fendi makes the Peekaboo style in many different colors each season and 4 different sizes (large, regular, mini and micro).  This one is the regular size.  Unfortunately, among the regular sized Peekaboo bags, this one is priced highest.  All the other colors I've seen are in the high 3000s or low 4000s.  But I just had my heart set on this one!  Sigh.  But the whole inner compartment where the monster yellow eyes are is made of python so I guess that's more expensive.  The rest of the bag is calf skin and it is super nice.

By the way, it is extremely hard for the bag to dip in the front like the photo above.  I literally had to push it down and take a picture real fast lol.  It looks more like this on its own:

But here's another reason I was more willing to shell out big dough for this bag - when it's closed up, the monster eyes are completely hidden and it just looks like a black, professional bag!  I love the versatility.  I could totally use this bag to go to an interview and no one would know there's monster eyes hidden inside... hehe.

When it's closed up, it looks exactly the same from the front or back:

Twist lock closure on both sides:

Here is what it looks like from the side when the front part is open:

And closed...

It also comes with a removable shoulder strap:

You can adjust the length of the strap:

Here's the attachment hardware:

It may be a bit hard to see, but the entire inner panel where the yellow eyes are, is made of python:

Close up:

I love that the zipper pocket is red on the inside, and by the way, this is the only zipper pocket that the bag has:

Here's what the inside looks like on the back compartment - it's a very soft and velvety material instead of python on the front compartment:

Here are its legs  =) :

Another thing that comes with the bag that I thought was super cute is the rain coat! 

It even has a picture of the bag on it... adorbs!

Here's the bag wearing it lol:

So cute!  I guess for that price, it better not get wet in the rain!  Hahaha.

Lastly, here it is on me!  I couldn't wait to use it already and went out to dinner with it.  I think the size is perfect.  I would actually struggle to keep it full on both front and back compartments.

I really love how subtle it is.  It really lives up to its name!  Like a monster in hiding lol.  Before I got this bag, I was considering the blue version, but I'm glad I went with black in the end.

I have been just staring at it and petting it nonstop since I got it.  It makes me happier than I even thought possible... lol!  I know this is a splurge item, but that's what I call money well spent!  =D

Sunday Funday!

Ugh, I'm sick!  Not only is it annoying, it also ruined my weekend workout plans.  I pretty much started getting sick on Saturday morning, just in time to put a damper on my weekend.  This morning I woke up feeling like I had a golf ball in my throat lol.  So I've been doing the salt water gurgle thing, and drinking lots of tea all day.  Hopefully it will go away soon!

I was doing pretty well with my workouts this week too, and felt good.  This cold or whatever really came out of nowhere.  I can only blame it on the crazy weather we've been having here.  It's been really hot and cold, and hot and cold, etc. - very temperamental!

Anyways, so I only got 3 workout outfits this week.  I was hoping to finish the 3rd round of Get Glutes Month 16 workouts strong.  But it looks like this will be pushed to next week.

Friday 4/22 - Rest.  But I figured I'd include my casual Friday work outfit since I don't do it very often!  I wore this plaid button down I got for like $10 at Nordstrom Rack a while back, with Joe's Honey Skinny Kali Jeans and French Connection Maya 2 pump.

Annnnd didn't end up going to the gym this weekend since I've been under the weather.  So that's it!  Hopefully I will kick this thing and get back on track this week to finish off Month 16 strong!
