The September Want List

HOME EDITION

My want lists have been primarily fashion related in the last year so I’ve decided to change things up a bit and post some ‘wants’ for my apartment.

Enjoy!

The November Want List

For a Winter Wonderland Themed Christmas Tree:

For my Steampunk obsession:

In my search to find a Steampunk stuffed animal for my niece’s Christmas gift, I stumbled across this handmade stuffed mechanical elephant on Etsy…and frankly, I’m in love! My niece might get one but her aunt plans to have its twin. 😉

To wear during the Doctor Who Christmas Special:

Fancy Tardis Ring!

In which to place my beverages as to not soil my new coffee table:

coasters

Been needing some coasters, and this Etsy shop owner has some really fun The Walking Dead designs.  Go check it out!

The September Want List

Standard

Welcome to the Random Assortment that is the September Want List!

Be prepared.  I’m simply throwing up an assortment of items I want without rhyme or reason.

Because leather is hot this season:

leggingOkay, so these leggings aren’t technically real leather…but they look gorgeous and are vegan friendly! Plus they’re a steal at only $66!

skirtThis skirt is the real deal.  Beautiful rust colored leather pencil skirt.  Ideal for day to night transition.

Because I love a bit of sparkle?!:

dressNecklineRock this silk and bead dress by Elijah to a holiday party…I might pair it with my octopus nylons…  skin colored with black octopus silhouettes running up my calves.  They almost look painted or tattooed on!

Because a girl always needs another pair of animal print shoes:

bootsCheetah ankle boots…want them badly! But at $425, they are a bit of splurge…I will pursue less expansive alternatives.  Sigh.

Because a small mirror just won’t do when I’m strutting these new looks:

MirrorBeen window-shopping mirrors for a while now…love this one, though I do feel as if it conjures up memories of Mrs. Havisham from Great Expectations…as though I should bear all the above looks while wrapped in a fur, lounging leisurely in a vintage armchair regaling the future youth with stories of my long-lost love(s).

Haha.

Then again maybe it’s merely a beautiful mirror!

The August Want List

Standard

Sorry for the delay in posting! August was an insanely busy month. Whew! I look forward to a more relaxing September.

Now for the fun!

For my lost ’80s gamer days:

tetrisYep, Tetris tights!  So fun…there are very few occasions where I’d actually rock these leggings but to name a few…Comic Con, 80’s Dance Party at Canal Room…well, actually, I suppose the list goes on. 😉

For saying Goodbye to Matt Smith as Doctor Who:

doctor who

It is sad to say goodbye but at least we have the anniversary and Christmas specials to soften the blow.

Just because it’s a jeweled octopus pillow:

pillow

Gorgeous!

For a glamorous night out, perhaps at a classic speakeasy with the bf in tow:

shoesI love these JCrew ’20s inspired t-strap heels! I want, I want, I want…oh wait, did I say I want yet?!

And because Fall is on the horizon:

tightsAdorable tights! Necessary for the cool days approaching.

The September Want List will be on time, I promise.  Fingers crossed.
