Musings: Things I Want But Can’t Afford…
I’m pretty sure I get obsessed with things really quickly to the point I Pinterest the hell out of them until they’re in my wardrobe OR they’re obliviated from my memory.
Remember my luxury wishlist?
I still want everything but sometimes finding a dupe or cheaper alternative is just as satisfying
. I shouldn’t be allowed nice things anyway as I’m a hot mess and a little too clumsy for my own good. I was lent a fancy camera for my Paris
trip a few years ago and I dropped mayonnaise on the lens after only using it for an hour. I guess this is why insurance exists right?
Anyway, as I have waffled on for far too long, I thought I’d show you the things I want but can’t afford…
I think I stumbled across these on Tumblr
(I’ve started using it again and it’s such a nice change from Instagram tbh) and I am in LOVE. They’re around the £850 price tag (HA HA HA AND HA) and I’ve seen a couple of dupes on good old Asos, but nothing will beat the original. I can see myself wearing these with EVERYTHING
– jeans, skirts, leather leggings, denim shorts. Excuse me whilst I go on the search for a glucose guardian…
I’m starting to think Chloe is my favourite designer brand. I remember watching I think it was Beauty Crush’s video where she got a Chloe Faye bag and since then I have coveted it. I love the contrast between the suede and leather, the simple hardware and the size, perfect for day and night.
One day… or night, it’ll be mine.
This is probably a little wildcard BUT Versace silk shirts are SO BOUJI and I LOVE IT. Cue me in Miami on my 30th
(It’s happening in 10 years time) on a boat with my Versace shirt as a cover up… But they look so versatile, I’d wear mine with jeans, skirts, shorts, over a plain dress… The closest I will get for the moment will be listening to Drake’s Versace…
Who remembers that Krayshawn song… GUCCI GUCCI GUCCI FENDI FENDI PRADA? I’ve actually seen her live (don’t ask). Anyway, the new bags in from Gucci are stunning and a little different to the minimal things I adore. I love the street style shots I’ve seen them in and the clashes created when mixed with a vivid print.
What are some things you’ve been coveting lately but can’t afford?
