These past few years have been rather unstable for me relative to cash flow because I’ve been chasing a dream that seemed to be rather unattainable - that subject can be saved for another post. Despite my lack of success in the achieving goals category for the past year, I have somehow been able to get everything I’ve wanted. It’s like a cheesy version of “The Secret” manifesting itself in an awkward way in my life. With “The Secret” in mind (having never seen or read anything about it, but extrapolating from cultural references like Parks & Rec), here’s a visual board of my wish list:
1. Cartier Love bracelet in pink gold.
I think the Love line has such a classic, minimalist design with the clean lines, and I love the idea behind the bracelet(s). There are plenty of other styles and designs for the Love bracelets that are a bit more excessive - I prefer an understated and classic design versus something overdone (no thanks to the diamonds, colored precious stones, etc.)
2. Ballon Bleu de Cartier watch
Having worked in a high-end jewelry store, I understand the beauty and pride that comes along with owning a fine timepiece. My feelings for Cartier timepieces are mixed in that the designs and brand is right in between the line of trendy and timeless. I also like a larger face on a watch primarily because I enjoy the dichotomy of a dainty waist and a large watch.
3. Loeffler Randall Rider Bag
So - I sold my bike in Minneapolis, which I loved oh-so dearly, but who cares! This rider bag is so classic and clean in design - it will last forever and stand the test of time. When I first saw this bag, I thought it was from Lambertson Truex, and was pleasantly surprised to find it came from Loeffler Randall. The LR brand is growing and their designs are still refreshing and youthful. Two thumbs up!
4. Nicholas Kirkwood’s Punk Studded Peeptoe Bootie
O.Ma.GAAAHHH. First off - I want EVERYTHING from Moda Operandi’s punk collection. If you haven’t seen that shiz, you better do yourself a favor and check it by clicking right HERE. These heels from Mister Kirkwood are what my wet dreams consist of. The tartan. The safety pins. The leather. (Luckily you can’t see me through the interweb screens because I am drooling on my keyboard.) The curators slash creators behind Moda Operandi are my fashion heroes for this season - thank you for making the Met Ball so much fun to tune into this year!
5 + 6. LWD from Dolce Vita or Rochas
This morning I was perusing my favorite fashion sites, and saw some of my favorite bloggers wearing/showing white dresses. I am particularly enamored with these two from Rochas and Dolce Vita. While the LBD exudes sex appeal and strength, the LWD has the opposite appeal - dainty and feminine are the adjectives that come into mind (along with virginal). While both of these dresses are paired with a neutral shoe, I would wear a very bold color to make a stronger statement with my outfit especially with the virginal connotation that comes along with white dresses.
Well - that sums up my wish list at the moment. I love strong architectural pieces, and that is what my next wish list/inspirational post will consist of. Eventually, I want to experiment and make the clothing that exists in my brain. ‘Til then, this blog shall serve as my Pinterest. Thx for reading/perusing!
