Sorry for the delay in getting out the want list! I’ve been super busy and am overdue for February… so here are my quick and dirty picks for this month.

I’ve been perusing lots of resort and summer apparel for my upcoming trip to Australia later this month.  I plan to get the March Want List posted early this month as I start shopping with gusto in the next week or so!

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. 🙂

Summer is Coming–The May Want List


It’s scorching hot here in NYC…last week I wanted to cry in frustration over the unseasonably cold weather that rained down on us. Yet now we’re sweltering with highs approaching 90 degrees.  Yeah, sure,  climate change must be a myth.  (Insert rolling eyes of sarcasm here)

Still I’d rather be hot and bothered than cold and damp.

So with the warm weather in mind, this want list is all about embracing summer and its fashion.

SandalsDiane Von Furstenberg Kyra Sandals in Peach

Why? Because every girl needs a pair of cute yet comfy sandals for running around the city.

Shift DressChev Republic Coral Pink Chevron Print Dress

This breezy summer shift is my biggest want right now.

Achor EarringsIt will be full-steam ahead with these anchor earrings.  Nautical is a classic summer look.

sunglassesAmaranto by Roberto Cavalli
This summer, I’m on a quest to find my new favorite pair of sunglasses.  If these complement my face, the search will be over.


Juicy Couture Ombre Straw Hat

I don’t usually wear hats, wide brim or narrow, but I like the idea of this one for roaming NYC before and after a weekend brunch date or for prowling the city streets with adventure in mind.
