Mansur Garviel - What's in my Bag

I decided to share with you What's in my bag. This was an impulsive splurge because I've been eyeing on this bag awhile. Originally I was planning to wait to get something in Italy, but after doing some research that this bag is only available in the US, I decided on getting it.  I'm a very minimalist person and tend not to carry too many items in my purse.  I try not to overwhelm too many items in my purse; otherwise, it'll be hard for my petite frame to carry around things.  I'm currently using my Mansur Gavriel Mini Lady bag, which is easy to get around. The bag that I purchased is in Camello and the interior of the bag is in Rosa.  I really like how the exterior and the interior of the bag color matches so well. Originally I wanted in black but with more researching, I tend to like the Camello more.  I have one too many black bags already.  Here in the pic I'm using a Ju.Ju.Be Be Set Hello Kitty bag, so I can keep things organized like my putting in my wallet, keys, and other misc stuff.  I realized that this bag doesn't have a zipper, instead this bag has a threaded drawstring top. I really like using this bag so far pairing with my casual outing outfits.  This bag measure 8.5"H x 12"W x 4.5"D and the bag weighs 1lb.  This bag is so super light because this bag is a made from vegetable tan leather.  Here's my advice if you do decide on purchasing this bag, don't over stuff it cause it can tend to get easily heavy.

Here's the description more on my bag:
  • Mansur Gavriel vegetable-tanned leather top-handle bag.
  • Available in multiple colors.
  • Flat top handle; approx. 6.3" drop.
  • Removable shoulder strap with 21.5" adjustable drop.
  • Flap top conceals threaded drawstring top.
  • Contrast coated leather interior; one hanging slip pocket.
  • Embossed logo at bottom center.
  • 8.5"H x 12"W x 4.5"D; bag weighs 1lb.
  • Made in Italy.
Hope you enjoy this post!  What kind of purse do you tend to purchase?

Boutique & Beauty Bar: Recipe for a Unique Shopping Experience


There’s always a risk when you create something new. Will people like it? Will it succeed? Will it be worth it?

When Madonna and Co. re-launched in Mid-town East Side, (bordering on the Upper-East Side) from our former location in Soho, we emerged as a different entity, incorporating what made us great in the past, but with new additions. We were more.

In addition to our new location on 60th street, we opened a full service salon and beauty bar within the store, bringing to a life a completely unique shopping experience.

Fashion and Beauty: An Innovative Convergence

The inclusion of the beauty bar inside our boutique converged the worlds of fashion and beauty in a way that’s never been done. For the first time, women have the opportunity to receive comprehensive beautification in a one-stop shop.

Bringing together fashion and beauty as we have done was not without risk, but innovation always involves a leap of faith. New creations don’t arise from the ether. Innovation comes as the result of unique combinations, whether it be a boutique and a beauty bar, our designs and exclusive designer capsule collections, or glam and chic, etc. Creating one-of-a-kind experiences from unique combinations is what Madonna & Co. has always done.

Our willingness to break barriers and defy categorization is what makes our selection of fashion and accessories so vibrant and original. All of the clothing in our store has been designed and hand picked from collections around the world. By dealing with the designer themselves and direct with our factories, we are able to offer luxury items at affordable prices.

The vast selection of unique affordable clothing featured in our shop is what makes us the best NYC boutique operating today. By shopping at Madonna & Co., you receive the peace of mind in knowing that you’ll never cross paths with someone wearing the same outfit; one-of-a-kind, wearable and affordable clothes for independent woman is what we do.

Community of Independent Women

While the ability to get a full-service haircut, styling, and complete makeup treatment in the same place where you find all of your exclusive designs and luxury clothing is extremely convenient, the impetus behind opening the beauty bar had more to do with community than convenience.

We wanted to create a space where independent women from all walks of life and ages could come together to shop, socialize, and express their femininity. We imagined a world where the social aspects of a salon coalesced with the activity of shopping. Our love of fashion and beauty led us to invent a world that unites these spheres and offers women a place to have fun and engage in a dialogue about fashion and style.

At Madonna & Co. we believe in creating a personal style. We see it as our job to assist women in crafting their own individual aesthetic. Every woman that walks through our doors is a unique assemblage of beliefs, values, and traits. Her aesthetic preferences are a function of her entire worldview and identity.

Creating the perfect outfit involves a translation of sorts. Our aim is to help the women who shops in our store translate their core identity into an aesthetic that embodies and represents who they really are and how they feel. Every woman who comes into our store receives a unique treatment that results in a unique style – whether her preferences lean towards glam, chic, posh, or edgy.

The beauty bar allows us to take the crafting of a unique style one step further. In addition to helping women find their dream new fashions, our stylists bring years of experience and knowledge to the table, assisting women realize their dream hairstyle!

We offer every customer a free consultation at the salon and beauty bar before her first appointment. This consultation gives us the chance to learn about what the specific customer likes about her hair or makeup styling and what she’d like to change. Our stylists and make-up artists will then present some possible ways to enhance the aspects of her appearance that the customer would like to shake up.

While our head stylist is an expert in all types of hair, her specialty is curly hair and we call her "The Curly Hair Expert." Our custom line of No Frizz Miracle Gel – designed specifically for curly hair – mirrors this focus.

Come Join our Community

What are you waiting for? Come join in on the fun! Today’s the perfect day to unleash the beauty within you and find that perfect outfit you’ve been longing for.

Booking an appointment at the salon and beauty bar can be done either by phone or via or on our new on-line store, for your convenience.

Kerastase Discipline Line Review

Recently I have been selected by influenster to try the Kerastase Discipline Line.  I'm always open to new hair products because I can never find the right product to tame my hair.  My hair is very coarse and frizzy.  Majority of the time it is hard to style my hair because of not finding the right hair product.  After a few usage, I notice my hair has gotten softer, less frizzy and shinier.  My hair feels restored after using this shampoo and mask conditioner. 

What does this shampoo do?
Gently cleanses unruly, frizzy hair while providing optimal discipline, fluidity, and nourishment without weight.

How to use it:
  • Apply a quarter size amount to wet hair and scalp 
  • Massage head using palms of hands 
  • Emulsify and rinse thoroughly

What does this Mask do?
Deeply conditions unruly, frizzy hair and provides maximum frizz control and extreme softness while sealing end. 

How to use it:
  • Apply a quarter-size amount to wet hair (mid-lengths and ends) 
  • Massage through 
  • Leave on for 5-10 minutes and rinse thoroughly
I hope you get an opportunity to try this and let me know what you think of this hair products.
