Wishlist: October

Photo by J. S. Zolliker
Here's a brief rundown of things I'm lusting after at the moment (Yes, I know, conspicuous consumption and all that, but a girl can dream, can't she?):

I'm trying to be more organised, so I'm using my DayRunner again. I'd like a mirror for the inside of it, like one of these locker mirrors, which I could easily hack to attach to the inside back cover. I could also use another business card holder for the inside of it.

I love these pink heart rhinestone studded iPod headphones!

As I mentioned on Twitter, I am seriously lusting after this sterling silver and cubic zirconia skull ring... I can see it with so many of my outfits!

I'd like my own tripod for outfit photos, so I don't have to keep borrowing The Boy's.

With winter coming on (whether we like it or not), I need a lip balm to put in my coat pocket. My choice this winter is The Body Shop's Cocoa Butter Lip Care Stick.

Legwarmers! I like skirts! I walk to work! I hate being cold!

Star Girl, by Jerry Spinelli. Because I no-so-secretly adore young adult fiction.

Salon/spa gift certificates. I'm trying like mad to save money at the moment so I can quit my job and do the fashion and style thing full-time, but I miss regular haircuts and pedicures!

Tall black Michael by Michael Kors boots. Swoon. These boots need to be in my life and in my closet. Dear beautiful boots, please come home with me and be my forever loves.

I love Lula magazine. Subscription? Yes please!

A well-stocked liquor cabinet! I've been consuming, but not replacing. I'm even out of plonk wine!

My closet seems to be expanding exponentially lately, and it looks like I'm going to need some more pants/skirt hangers.

What are you lusting after lately? Tell me in the comments!


  1. I'm lusting after three things right now: two fashiony, one not.

    Thing one: blazers. I own zero. I would like to own at least three. Given the outlay that this would require, it may be a while.

    Thing two: knit gabardine ties. Mostly so I can accessorize with things one up there. It took me a long time to come around to the idea of knit ties, but the texture is so warm and inviting.

    Thing three: wine wine wine wine wine. I really should budget more money for wine every month. Not so that I can buy more bottles, but so I can buy more expensive bottles. ;) I'd like to try some of the higher-end red Burgundies, for one thing. I love Niagara Pinot, but would like to expand my horizons a bit.

    PS: the captcha for this comment was "booti". It's like they're reading my mind!

  2. John, knit gabardine ties!? Nicely done, friend. There's not enough of those going around.

  3. haha! plonk - i haven't heard that word in ages. my parents had plonk during the week and saved the nice stuff for weekend meals :)

    I desperately want the perfect pair of motorcycle boots. I have two pairs, but they are not *perfect*.
    Leather jeans that fit perfectly - I have been on the search for these since an early 1990's Vogue story feature with Linda Evangelista et al wearing lots of different biker gear. She had on leather jeans and a white t-shirt. It is forever burned in my psyche.

    Love yoru blog!

  4. @meanie Thanks for the comment! I've been lusting after a pair of Frye motorcycle boots myself.
