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?
One of our no-fail outfits that work just as well in the office than on the weekends is without a doubt a pair of blue jeans, black top and blazer. The look is refined, effortless looking and doesn’t require to wear a dress or tights. What we love even more is vintage denim, and this redesigned style by Levi’s for Re/Done is the perfect cut for Fall/Winter. We love the high-waisted and flared hem look, and the perfect length not to get your jeans dirty in rain puddles! Get on board!
The first time we heard about Wander beauty, created by none other than Divya Gugnani and supermodel Lindsay Ellingson, we fell head over heels for their easy-to-use, practical, on-the-go makeup line, made for women that don’t have too much time on their hands to get ready. After their hugely successful products we use daily, we were delighted to come across some much needed de-puffers in the shape of chic gold adorned eye masks. We’ll be sure to take pack them in our carry-on on our next long-haul flight!
It turns out, doctors can become patients too – and when that happens, their lives kind of fall apart. Paul Kalanithi takes you through the early days of medical school, right through the day he found out he only had a few months left to live. What does a neurosurgeon, who felt compelled to devote his career to neurosurgery because of its perfectionist trait and direct confrontation with identity and death do? We’ve just turned the last page of this intoxicatingly well written, yet heartbreaking piece, and we highly recommend you do too!
There’s no surprise that the one look at the hashtag #mangogirls will have you scrolling down to the very bottom in search for the most effortless put together look, styled by it girls worldwide, courtesy of the Spanish high-street retailer. If you too would like to look as seamlessly chic, this pocket shirt with matching trousers is an easy start. Style it with a pair of hoops and you’re good to go!
