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?
Last week we broke down the many ways why a silk dress is one of the quickest ways to look put together and instantly chic. Since we’re now in Autumn, we thought there was no better opportunity to get our hands on this (marked down!) midi dress in the perfect shade of merlot. Wear a turtleneck bodysuit beneath if it gets cold, or simply cover up with an oversized blazer or elegant long coat. Alternatively you could go the rock’n’roll and young route by topping it with a black leather jacket.
We first came across the duo behind award-winning GlamGlow masks way back in 2013. After hearing that the company specializes strictly on masks, we knew that was something we had to get behind! This DreamDuo treatment is everything we need after a long month of travelling. Put it on before you go to bed and keep it on overnight for maximum results – you’ll thank us later!
If you already read Cork Dork, then this masterpiece by humorist and writer extraordinaire Marissa Ross is your next read! The author is a contributor editor at digital magazine Bon Appétit and started blogging about wine back in 2012. Get your hands on this book if you, like many others struggle about bringing a bottle of wine to a dinner party and spend hours browsing through the wine section of your local supermarket.
Cold mornings with hot afternoons – a nightmare weather when it comes to fashion, but a friendly and sunny reminder that winter isn’t here yet. However, it might be that you want to carry around a few layers to cover up in the mornings and evenings when it gets chilly. We love a big tote to stash all our daily needs in, and this croc effect black one with a bamboo handle is all we’re longing for. Get yours in a classic black or in a variety of other tones like orange, white croc or even pink.
What’s on your wish-list?
