The day after pay-day is always hard for me. I try to restrict myself to a budget (that Danny still considers outrageous) for my personal spending. My bills are always paid, but then I get on the internet and am always bombarded with things that I want. Since this is a known problem for me, I have decided that documenting some of my favorites would help me make the decision of whether or not to pull the trigger on some higher priced purchases. Also, I have an anniversary coming up in August and if Danny asks you what I want, please direct him to my Lustful Friday posts :)
My number one, most wanted piece right now is a bag by Alexander Wang. When we were in Europe, over a year ago, I saw a woman in the Milan Airport carrying this bag and have been dreaming of it ever since. I would consider my style to be a little bit rock n roll, a little bit beach bum and a little bit sexy. This bag brings it all together.
I am not a bag girl. The last bag I HAD to have, a Marc by Marc Jacobs stone colored leather Ukita, I still carry daily even though I bought it in October of 2012. I also waited until I could get it from ShopBop at 30% off. Bags just have never been my weak spot. We leave that shining flaw of mine to bikini purchasing :) So, it can kind of make sense as to why this big-ticket item is one I'm on the fence about. Another reason, speaking of the ticket, is the price itself. At nearly a grand this would be the most I have spent on anything other than my car, computers and college education. I love this bag, but this is one of those purchases that will have to wait until I win the lottery or we hit two billion subs on YouTube.
The shoes are a little more sensible. I first saw these on NastyGal last fall when they were featured in an array of colors. They are deceivingly Jeffrey Campbell. I am a huge fan of his creations, but never owned any myself because they are usually a little too out there for me. What can I say, I am a sucker for a nude shoe. I think there is nothing more flattering on a woman. Wearing a nude heel helps lengthen your leg and does not cut you off at the ankle like a black one would. The best part about these shoes is that they do not have a platform. Danny and I are only an inch or two apart in height and although I am a heel fanatic, I hate when I am towering over him. I love that these heels are now in a more neutral option and will probably be purchasing these as soon as I have a worthy event.
So, you have heard all about my wants... What are yours?
