I’m lusting after a few luxury items at the moment and I’m stopping myself from making any purchases because we’re meant to be saving at the moment…and I’d like to go on holiday (probably Mauritius) this year.
That means no bloody spending Ally!!!
So, in an effort to cleanse myself of these lustful desires…I’m going to share them with you and it’ll maybe feel like I’ve bought them and enjoyed them? Hmmmm…not sure this will help, but let’s give it a shot.
Claudia Bertini Wrap Trousers
I spotted these in one of Sheer Luxe’s newsletters…the photo was in a montage and it was love at first sight.
It took some serious detective work to track them down…as usual, they are pinned on Pinterest to high heaven, but not from the original source…just from a sodding Tumblr. Don’t you just hate that?! Some reverse image searching and scouring of file names eventually brought me to the designer – Claudia Bertini. They are high waisted ‘paper bag’ trousers. She calls them wrap trousers. I love the dusky pink colour…she’s got a few variations. Her website doesn’t show which photos go with what colours and fabrics (helpful!), but I’m guessing these are the light aubergine ones, although I’m not totally sure. At current exchange rate, they are £445. I don’t need them, I just love them.
Gucci Marmont Heels
At £455, I don’t need them…..I don’t need them (chants, repeatedly).
Alexander Wang Rucksack
I have been lusting after the Alexander Wang Dumbo Rucksack for quite some time now…ever since I spotted one in Manchester TK Maxx, bought it…and then decided to return it. Why did I return it? The hardware was rose gold. I don’t wear a lot of rose gold and I like to make sure that any big investment bags are going to last me years…I’m not sure if rose gold will last past a few more years, so I made myself take it back. I was both super proud of sensible me and also dying inside.
My friend Laura from A Forte For Fashion actually spotted it in the Leeds store (the store I took it back to) and said “ah I really want this Alexander Wang rucksack”…I think she thought I was mad for returning it. But although it was a bargain for this bag, it was still too much money to spend on something that might not stand the test of time. I saw a lady in The Trinity in Leeds with it a few weeks later. She looked good and I was happy it went to a good home. Maybe one day I’ll buy it again in silver or gold hardware. It’s worth noting I do own an Alexander Wang Rocco bag which is a similar design, but not a rucksack. See? I don’t need it! *chants again*
Kurt Geiger Mayfair Heels
I love the lace up design on the Mayfair heels. Quite a few bloggers have been wearing these…again, another one that Lizzy has me lusting over….
Lots of shoes on this list, huh? I do love shoes though. They can make an outfit.
Ok, so that’s my current lust list guys. I do feel like letting it out helped…haha!
