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?
It’s no secret that we’re huge fans of high-street pieces that look expensive but are in fact, very much within our budget. This marigold yellow fringe skirt is all we need to spice up our Autumn looks without relying on our grey and black tones. Match it with a bodysuit as pictured or a white button down for a more dressed up look, and you’re ready to go!
Early mornings and cold weather can make you reluctant and lazy to wash your hair every other day, which in our case results in an overuse of our beloved dry shampoo. The upside is that your hair doesn’t look greasy anymore, but as with any upside, there’s a downside – and that’s dryness! Meet Le Baume, the ultra hydrating leave-in conditioner infused with a marvelous oil-blend, ready to bring back some bounce and life to your mane.
Lean In was already one of our quickest books to get around, so you can imagine our delight when we came across Sheryl Sandberg’s second book, Option B: Facing Adversity, Building Resilience, and Finding Joy. The COO of Facebook writes about what life is after the sudden passing of her husband, and how her and her children cope with finding joy again. This masterpiece is not only a lesson for anyone that faced tragedies, but also a good starting point to try to better understand anyone that has. Honest, pure and strong, we highly recommend it!
Cold weather can take a toll on our feet – and it’s not everyday that we’re ready to squeeze into a newly-purchased pair of patent-leather boots. For those days, we recommend sliding into a comfortable, yet stylish pair of sneakers. This two-tone suede model is perfect for those of us who aren’t embracing the chunky dad sneakers, and the silver touch gives it a bit more oomph than a regular pair of white or black trainers.
What’s on your wish-list?
