Holiday season is coming up! For some people, it may be a stressful month to collect all the perfect gifts for F&F; but for me, it's joyful time in year that I can shop without feeling too guilty. It's totally legit to show ourselves some gratitude by redeeming the goodies that have lain in our wish list for a long long time, isn't it? :)


My two favorite items are the Building Block bucket bag and the Madewell Milo bootie.

The bucket bag was brought back to the fashion trend for quite a while, but among all the versions in the market, I love this design the best, especially its architectural spirit. I also adore its elegant smooth leather and interesting details. (Love at first sight with its tassels!)

This pair of Milo boots from Madewell has been my favorite shoes lately. I always love womenswear with design inspiration from menswear. This boot combines a high-shine finish with a sleek shape, and its monk-strap closure and almond-shaped toe simply elevate the fanciness.

S.J.'s two favorite items are the B&O H6 headset and the COS wool cardigan.

Long been a huge fan for B&O, S.J. purchased his second B&O headphone. The H6 he is wearing has a beautiful balance of modernity and luxe. The contrast between genuine leather and the shine of metal is a statement, an uncompromising attitude on every details of the headphones.

And finally, COS had it’s first New York store opened last week! As minimal as its products, the COS store has such a beautiful, white, modern design that we could just hang out there and try out its clothes for hours. S.J. got the grey wool cardigan that is purely simple and classic.
