Nothing exudes the start of a new season and quarter than a brand-new column – which brings us to the here and now, fellow readers! We’re excited to announce the first edition of Want, Need, Read, Wear – the weekly feature will encompass the top pick from our team for each category. WANT is a current must-have and the kind of product which when we decide to ‘sleep on it’ makes an appearance in our dreams and is one of the first things that cross our minds when we sip that first cup of coffee in the morning. NEED is as you may assume a pure necessity – whether it’s that *one* it bag or accessory we’re spotting everywhere or the latest Amazon buy we plan to reorder. READ isn’t limited to a book, (although we’ve got a handful of best-sellers we’re dying to share with you) it can be a recent article we’ve bookmarked or the latest newsletter we subscribed to and read on our way to work. Lastly, WEAR will introduce solely fashion purchases, including but not limited to that one pair of white trousers we must add to our summer collection or those just under $10 heart shaped sunglasses available on Amazon Prime, and happen to be a fraction of the original YSL pair (because you know we love a bargain!).
Let’s jump right into it, shall we?
To say we got excited about Shopbop’s 4-day sale is an understatement. Their annual event that “invites” you to save money by purchasing a certain amount gives us just the right incentive to get started on our summer looks! This one-shoulder dress by Keepsake has been on our minds since last week’s feature and it’s in our carts for the first summer wedding in our calendars!
This raffia-straw bag by French living in California dream designer Clare Vivier. The title translated from French says ‘honey pot’ and is the perfect shape to carry your essentials from day to night. Make sure to check out the rest of her collection – you’ll want at least one!
Turtles All The Way Down by John Green is just one of the books that’s currently on our reading list and we’re not ready to put it down just yet. This young adult novel is a true page turner and the perfect blend between home town romance, crime and psychological struggles in teenagers. Next up as soon as we finish: Enlightenment Now by Steven Pinker or Bill Gates’ latest favorite.
You may have noticed that we love a good deal – so when we find ourselves stacking 8 pieces of tops including bodysuits, knitwear and silk shirts onto our arm on a casual midweek Zara shopping haul, you know we’re gonna get a run for our money. As it so happens, I couldn’t pick favorites in this WEAR section and am thus presenting you with our current top 2 knitwear pieces. Pastels because it’s spring and time for a tennis match, and ochre/camel with a front knot for rainy days.
What’s on your wish-list?
