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?
Following age-defying routines and taking in all the skincare products to keep you wrinkles at bay and your skin as glowing and dewy as possible is just one of the many things keeping us ladies busy these days. Or shall I say years? Thankfully though, it appears that Jamie Sherrill, the go-to woman behind all Nurse Jamie products is giving us a hand when we can’t control our skin the most – which is at night! The beauty bear age defy pillow (also available in leopard-print!) will fight wrinkles while you sleep – literally. The u-shape is designed to cradle the face and neck, improves quality of sleep and helps minimize sleep lines.
There’s no secret that the bucket bag had already got our fashion-forward wheels spinning back in Spring – but this patent-leather version in no other classic Fall/Winter color than black has got us fully back on the bucket radar. Staud has managed to master simplicity with good quality and at accessible price points. We’re adding this black version to our wish lists asap and so should you. PS: don’t be surprised if we come back with another version of this versatile bag – and let’s not forget plus points for the shoulder strap giving us a hands-free access!
One of our favorite things to do here at The Weekly Cut is to read about other entrepreneur’s success stories. This memoir by Nike founder Phil Knight is all you need to get you motivated for the busiest month of fashion: September. Shoe Dog gives you a first-hand insight into how Knight got started and leads the path to any dream you’d like to achieve. It’s a truly inspiring book and a must-have for anyone looking to start their own business.
A classic pair of pumps, with the perfectly walkable height and elegant nude tone is all we’ll need when the time comes to ditch our block-heeled sandals and run from one fashion appointment to another. Schutz has managed to master affordable footwear without sacrificing quality – and all that under £100, because yes they’re on sale. Which never happens in neutral tones like beige and black – get yours now by clicking below!
