  1. Thanks for the compliment on my timepiece... and yes... it's a thing of beauty... absolutely the sexiest watch I've ever seen by Bulgari or anyone. The Black rubber against the gold...they play off each other like a battle of dominancy and dependency on each other for it's own survival... it's seem so wrong, but it's so right. Bulgari is amazing that way.

  2. Oh, we are two peas in a pod :smile: I am extremely deliberate with how I pack my bags. Love my small leather goods that have very specific functions. And my handbags are the first thing unpacked/stuffed/placed neatly in their dust bag, and returned to the closet when I return home. Loose receipts, wrappers, or pens make me shudder, ha. Perish the thought!

    The luxury experience is so lovely. I do also enjoy vintage/treasure hunting in its own right. Both give me immense joy in their own special way.

  3. Yes we are. I love style and functionality. It has to make sense and serve a specific purpose. All my luxury accessories are that way. I keep ALL my original boxes, so each item goes into their proper dust bag and in their own box. I use the clear plastic from my dry cleaning to cover each and every luxury box (I even like my boxes pristine). I am careful with the tissue paper inside the box, because it is folded like origami. Now my shoes... I just use the packing it came with, I like to keep those dust bags unused... I always ask for an extra dust bag or two to use when traveling. I only bring about 3 to 4 pairs of shoes,(I own at least 60 pairs of Gucci and lost count of how many Thom Browne shoes I own.... way too many for a man, I was told. lol) no matter how long I am traveling. I do put my Tiffany & Co writing instrument in my tote bag and/or portfolio, but it is in it's Tiffany & Co felt bag and tied tight. I also have a fountain pen, but as of the last few decades... I leave it home... I use it to write letters and send Thank You note cards... from my Tiffany & Co or Cartier stationery. (and YES, I still do handwritten letters and notes to mail out... using a mailbox. lol) I have to get into vintage/treasure hunting, I am sure I will love it as much as you do. I wish Bulgari made bags for men or at least a nice size tote and/or portfolio.

  4. I love this. I find such pleasure in caring for my items. Beyond merely respecting my things, I actually find it quite fun. Most people think I’m over the top, but that’s precisely why this is the forum for me!

    And we also align in regards to handwritten letters.. lost art. In addition, I find a ritualistic delight in opening my mail with a Tiffany & Co letter opener. Something about it brings back the formality to a now present day mundane experience. Perhaps that’s why I love integrating vintage into my collection? I imagine what sort of fabulous lady from another time owned the item. And how it made its journey to me. Heritage and history assigned to a piece makes it so rich. I’d like to think I’m creating a fun and exciting history for my brand new pieces.. wherever they may end up long after I’m gone!

    Bvlgari should expand. I actually love a good men’s portfolio. Attribute this to the architect in me!! If they come out with one- I’ll be first in line!

  5. Wow... so exciting ! I too use a letter opener... I have the Tiffany & Co '1837' letter opener... the personally elegant formality of it all excites me and makes me all giddy inside, even for such a seemingly mundane practice, one should do it with style. Love your items and somehow the creative energy that goes into creating such a richly and historically assigned piece has a way of loving you back. I even have the 'Return to Tiffany & Co' flatware... it is in one of my earlier posts. How one treats oneself privately truly defines them. I have the Tiffany & Co Twin Bell Alarm clock... A nod to a simpler and elegant time (Don't ask me why I found it necessary to buy a $500 alarm clock... lol) next to my black rotary dial phone from the 1950's (speaking of vintage pieces in my collection). Life is a rehearsal... the performance is real.

    If and when Bvlgari expands to mens bags, I will be right behind you, in line for my Bvlgari portfolio, Tote bag and accessories with champagne in tow... preferable at their launch party. You and I will be having fun counting the Bvlgari signage all throughout the bag like people who truly lost their ever loving mind(s). lol
    Cheers !

    My friend reposted this photo of us recently and I totally forgot I own this necklace!! I think it’s from the Allegra collection and probably discontinued. It’s so beautiful but I rarely have occasion to wear it :hrmm:
     
  7. I just purchased this in Spain I love the B0 ring and the diva leather bracelet.

  9. Also loved that you pick and purchased the non-common pieces... definitely stand out choices ! I wanted that B-Zero 1, but I am too rough with my pieces and know for sure that I would damage it. So I stuck with the all gold version. Wish I would have taken the chance though. Bulgari is lucky to have you. Now you must post some Mod Shots.
