I've been in la la land today doing some outfit planning of outfits that I don't yet own. Sounds certifiably crazy right?! I actually find this rather therapeutic and logical as it gets me thinking past the instantaneous desire to own something when I see it online, to what will actually work in my wardrobe, what goes with what and after I settle down, it clarifies what I truly like and want after my moment of mass hysteria has passed. Somehow this has regulated my consumption and all for the better. I buy less, am happier with my purchases and sell less of them on.
So these six items are all on my wish list at the moment or in some cases, already owned. Maybe this post would be more suitably labelled 'what I WILL be wearing'. Watch this space as I guarantee these will start trickling in to my wardrobe over the coming weeks/months. I'm aiming high, that is for a minimum of four of these items... bare bare minimum!
The Equipment 'Signature' shirt (I own this already in white) feels devine. Washed silk tends to have that smoothness and the perfect fall. I know I'll wear this shirt to death. It's a classic that will undoubtedly be worn for the entire year and believe me, these shirts wear well. How many items in your closet can you say tick those two boxes?
The Isabel Marant 'Wesley' skirt I've waited and waited and waited for. This is my perfect cutie skirt that has the ability to also look elegant or even sexy. It's so easy to transform dependant on the shoes and top it's combined with but a sure winner from day to night, from beach to bar/dinner.
The Valentino 'Rock Stud' pumps. Well... what more can I say than these beauties are pure sex appeal with the class a lady should strive for. The perfect balance and just too darn foxy to ignore.
This Chloe 'Lucy' leather bag I've pictured in my wardrobe from the moment I first laid eyes on it. So ladylike, understated, timeless and the perfect neutral hue that would have it matching just about any outfit. At its current price it's too excessive for me to buy but I figured it deserves a place on the wish list in hope that it will hit sale at some unreasonable price that I just can't ignore. Highly improbable but I remain hopeful!
Gucci has a reputation for putting out some serious scents that aren't for the faint hearted. This one I own already. It's been a long standing perfume of choice. It's very sensual and has some serious lasting power.
And lastly, this little piece of arm candy by Chan Luu I find really workable. I struggle integrating bracelets and bangles. Maybe it's just a phase but this is an easy solution to my problems.
