The January Want List

The January Want List

January is finally almost over, and it’s been cold, cold, cold in NYC! I feel as though I ought to be posting photos of burly parkas and fleece-lined boots instead of the little wisps I have ready for you readers today!

Above is a gorgeous crossbody bag that I would love to own…and very soon! There is a great everyday feel to it but the gold adds a splash of excitement without being gaudy.

Now onto the main list…

To wear in the chilly weather, perhaps while dining at a Parisienne cafe watching street traffic and channeling the jazz age, all the while indulging in a gin fizz or old-fashioned:


Just because:


Digging the hot air balloon leggings…it reminds me of old-time carousels and gaslight fantasy novels.

For the 9-5 job:


Cute textured flip skirt from C. Luce…

purseGeometric-shaped crossbody from Danielle Nicole…it screams sophisticated work bag…and appears large enough to hold all my devices and other traveling items without being bulky.


Loving this Sachin & Babi knit top…my office is pretty casual but if we only had casual Fridays, this top would fit the bill of sassy and fun, and still seem appropriate.

More to come in February…probably lots of swim and resort wear plus travel gear as I prep for my big trip to Australia and Hawaii!

The June Want List


For drinking scotch, perhaps while watching Mad Men all the while hoping they give more on-screen time to Joan (aka Christina Hendricks):

scotchThat’s right, an affordable round ice-ball maker.

For lazy weekend mornings in the summer:


Toddy Cold Brew Coffee Maker…for when the outside temperature makes the thought of hot coffee unbearable.

For napping:


Cradle seat–weird and slightly icky name, but I love the idea of napping or reading inside this overgrown cocoon.

For my new archery obsession:

earringsArrow earrings, just adorable!

For when I want to feel like The Great Gatsby‘s Daisy Buchanan:

dressThis dress sings the jazz-age modernized to me.

And the heels to pair it with:


That’s all for this month…swing by at the end of July for more wants!
