The July Want List


For the work to evening transition:


Ridiculously cute and expensive Chanel heels

Paired with the Portofino Shirt Dress from Express:


I have the Portofino shirt and I love it! This dress would be fantastic for staying business appropriate at work with an easy transition to happy hour shenanigans (perhaps with one top button undone). Comfortable and under-statedly sexy!

For a low-key summer date night:

dress2Ethereal hi lo chiffon dress: lovely draping and color…perfect for date night with the boyfriend.

unnamedSeychelles Heart of the Matter yellow wedges:  sweet and vibrant, these wedges provide just enough height to reduce the distance between me and my guy.

For storing all my wine (and other spirits too):

Wine Barrel

Oak Wine Barrel: rustic and storage friendly…and keeps a girl well-stocked when she is staying in rather than going out.

Check back in August for more wanted items. 🙂

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!

The March Want List


This month, I’ve stumbled across all sorts of new items to covert…some I’ll manage to secure soon but others, alas, will have to be admired from afar.

For the home:

Victrola iPhone Speaker

Vintage Victrola iPhone Speaker:  Love this! This speaker is beautiful as well as functional.  I imagine finding it a home on a small table…likely you’ll find me there as well, reclining on a nearby chaise lounge chair, sipping Old-Fashioneds possibly reading a favored novel or editing one of my manuscripts.  All the while, the speaker will be pumping out harmonies.  Such a lovely image!  It makes me ache.  I only hope one day to see it come true.

For indulging:

Obviously, these are very couple-y, but I’ll ignore that fact (and hope the boyfriend does too) because they are simple and adorable and who doesn’t Game of Thrones?!

For my personal style:

Adorable Dieselpunk hair clips…need I say more?!

hair chalking

Lately, I have been obsessed with the idea of dying sections of my hair a fun vibrant color and when I saw this idea on Pinterest, I fell in love.  Plume has created a line of pastel hair chalks that rinse-out.  It’s basically all the fun without all those pesky harmful dyes and the eventual hair damage from said bleach/hair dye.  So with the giddy warmth of Spring and Summer almost here, you might see me soon with brightly dyed, and maybe even coifed, hair.

That’s all for now…check back at the end of April to see what I’m coveting next month.
