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?
Looking for the easiest way to upgrade your happy hour situation? Enter the world of glassware at Anthropologie and get yourself this set of 4 coupe glasses! Made in Czech Republic and hand-painted, these are guaranteed to make a great impression! If you’re looking to complete your set, there’s much more where that came from… think carafes and champagne flutes!
Not one for piling on multiple layers of foundation or mastering contouring techniques, we have however settled on a setting spray that acts as a transparent veil to our skincare and makeup routine. Whether it’s just a little added brow or cheek highlighter, Hourglass Cosmetics’ latest release is one to keep on standby at all times. It’s refreshing, light and makes sure everything stays in place for a few hours!
If you’re looking to learn more about how you can educate yourself more or further about how racism came to be, and is still very much active and if you want to know how to become anti racist, because ultimately nothing else proves that you stand for all races, then this book is a great start. It’s a remix of the original Stamped From The Beginning, and something everyone should read. Donations and Instagram posts just aren’t enough – it’s time to change your own mindset and perspective so that you can educate others.
Rarely does a white mini summer dress fit multiple occasions and dress codes, but this one by Zara hits the spot. Short enough to flash your legs, long enough on the sleeves if it gets breezy, closed neckline with the option to open up, and an added belt for looseness or tightness, depending on the mood! What’s more, the mix of embroidered and cutout details make it extra flirty – get yours and pair with gold jewellery and strappy sandals.
What’s on your wish-list?
