This Week in Lust | Christian Louboutin and Candy

This Week in Lust | Christian Louboutin and Candy

Happy Monday! or angry Monday for those of you who have to work (I feel you). I didn’t do a “This Week in Lust” post last week, so I’m making up for it today. Take a break from writing your 2013 resolutions and have a look at the are the insanely priced items I have chosen for this week.

  1. Black and Cream Graphic Dress by Sonia Rykiel from shoplesnouvelles.com – I wish this dress was black and white because  the color cream always comes off as dingy to me *shrug*. Nevertheless, I love that it’s mod inspired and the assorted black stripes (especially at the top) are forgiving for heavy chested ones among us :). I love the “Paris” and “London” writing because they say “I’m fashionable”, but I don’t think the picture does this dress justice (see Rome Lanvin dress on mannequin vs Rome Lanvin dress on Kim K).
  2. Vanish Shades from nastygal.com – Remember Dwayne Wayne from the sitcom A Different World who rocked the round frame shades? #throwback. I feel like him (and Beyonce) when I thrown on my round frames.
  3. Christian Louboutin V-neck Patent Leather Pumps from net-a-porter.com – I don’t really see how this shoe could ever go wrong. It’s a modern day Mary Jane with a red bottom that is associated with Mr. Louboutin. Say it with me “long heels, red bottoms!”
  4. Chanel Vintage Logo Earrings from farfetch.com – These earrings are legit vintage from a company that tracks down designers, celebrities etc. and buys items from them. Chanel earrings can never be anything less than classic and classy, two words that can also describe the woman who made them household items for many, Coco Chanel.
  5. Prada Candy Perfume from macys.com – If you read my review of Madonna’s Truth or Dare Perfume, you would have seen me run on about how much I love perfume with vanilla notes in it. Released in August 2011, Candy also features notes of musk, and benzoin, but it also features caramel as its base note, which adds warmth and literally makes it smell like candy. 🙂

Thanks for reading!

This Week in Lust | All Black Everything

This Week in Lust: All Black Everything

Happy Friday everyone! I pray everyone is enjoying the holidays. I’m off from school and even though I have not cracked a book yet to edit my senior thesis *sigh*, I do not feel one bit guilty. Here are the items that I am currently lusting and just in case you’re new to my blog, these pieces are supposed to be out of my price range so that I can actually lust for them…make sense?

  1. Lacey Leather Look Mix Dress from topshop.com – If you watched my last haul video on my youtube channel, you would have seen a bunch of leather items. 🙂 I am absolutely here for this leather trend and my next outfit post will feature a leather item (stay tuned).
  2. Givenchy Medium Antigona Duffel Bag from bergdorfgoodman.com – This bag is very simple, but the shine gives it a lil sum sum and it can add a touch of flair to your outfit. Plus it’s Givenchy. #win
  3. Ray Ban Clubmaster Sunglasses from ray-ban.com. I’ve always wanted a pair  of Ray Bans, but never thought it was necessary to shell out this kind of money when one is without a 9 to 5. I’ll look for a cheaper pair, but until then…#lusting
  4. L.A.M.B Oxley Pumps from macys.com – Two words: Chic. Classy. If you didn’t know, L.A.M.B. is owned by Gwen Stefani, a woman who does not age, and what I like about these shoes is that the ankle straps are secured via velcro, so they are adjustable. Also, the front section of this shoe does not fully cover your foot and it creates a very different look when worn. Probably not the most comfortable, but I like it…very Zaraesque.

Do you like any of the items?

This Week in Lust | Leopards and Tigers

This week in lust
Coming to you live from my bed, here are this week’s items that are giving me life support. 🙂
  1. Tiger Pull-Over from smoooothclothing.com – Close your eyes, imagine that sweater with a thick black legging/leather leggings, some bad azz black ankle boots, and some chunky gold accessories…ooooweee!
  2. Charlotte Olympia Polly Leopard Pump from neimanmarcus.com – Listen, I feel like Charlotte Olympia shoes snatch wigs from the top of Christian Louboutin’s head. I don’t who invented the island platform, but I have come to associate it with her shoes and I think it’s absolutely gorgeous! Beyonce has been seen taking a stroll with Blue Ivy wearing her “cat faced leopard flats” and, as a leopard print fanatic, I couldn’t be any more elated.
  3. Beat Bracelet from boticca.com – Ain’t that cute? As I like to say, I have a certain insatiable lust for life, so I believe this is fitting for me.
  4. Cut Out Leopard Oxfords from forever21.com – I have never seen anything like these shoes before. I’m still staring at them.
  5. Miayet – Pleated hand-woven shorts from net-a-porter.com – The holidays are the time for bright shorts and the fabric these shorts are made of were hand-crafted in India. Fancy *pinkies up*. Lastly, I love the tailoring because it probably will make the pant fit better and of course, it adds some flair.

That’s all folks!

❤ Brittany
