Hermès Sydney Buckle With
24mm Reversible Leather Belt In Chocolate Calfskin/Red Garance Togo Calfskin

Another of my long overdue shopping reveal. Something I got for myself over New Years in Bangkok as a way to fulfill a new year wish:-)

Ever since I saw a pic of Melanie Huynh wearing her Hermès Belt with a silver palladium plated Sydney Buckle, I knew I had to have it. I love the square studs and the metal ring which gives an edge if you wanna rock some glamourous biker chic. Singapore Hermès stores are a 'dud', they practically do not carry anything I want at the right time. Hence, I have long given up on waiting for them to call me when stocks are in (since I am not a VIP customer, chances are almost equal to zero). When I spotted the Sydney Buckle at the Hermès Store in Bangkok's Siam Paragon Shopping Mall, I contemplated at first, knowing the price will be more expensive than in Singapore. But since Hermès Singapore is 'unreliable', and rather than having to put up with their snobbish attitudes, I chose to pay more and get great service and an item I have been dying to own!

With the Sydney Buckle found, it is now another tough task to decide which leather colours to pick:-) I chose the 24mm Reversible leather belt in Chocolate Calfskin and Red Garance Togo Calfskin as these were colours that I do not own yet:-) Orange and brown were my desired pick, but it seems this combination is non existent. On second thought, I really love the deep red garance colour, which is eye catching, and uncommon... definitely compliments my silver Sydney Buckle very well.

One shopping wish down with another long list to follow. I shall be patient:-P One item at a time. I would love to own a lizard Collier De Chien some day:-) That's my next Hermès wishlist.

(On a last note, this is the 100th item I have bought and revealed on the blog! Yikes, now I know where did all my money went:-(...oops!)


Price (In Singapore): SGD $550 for Sydney Buckle, SGD$580 for Leather belt
Price (In Bangkok): THB 14400 for Sydney Buckle, THB 15000 for Leather Belt
