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?
We’ve heard about it, read about it, and finally tried it last week during a visit to our go-to facialist in central London. And then we saw that this beauty editor included it in her top essential products to own. If you haven’t yet heard about it, let us introduce you to the Biologique Recherche Lotion P50 – considered a facial in a bottle, is known to reduce wrinkles, dark spots, and give you the ultimate post facial glow. Pro tip: don’t let the smelly odor discourage you to try it, some even go as far as to call it the holy grail of all beauty products.
If you’re following us closely you’ll know that we’ve been working on putting together the ultimate spring/summer wardrobe at affordable price points that won’t make you gasp at your total. The only thing we hadn’t yet come across? The foolproof wedding guest dress! Lo and behold, last night’s treasure on none other than Revolve led us to this dress on sale, in our size and just under $50. Imagine the setting, mid-June, scorching heat and by the seaside, all I need to finish off the look is some sea shell jewelry, a pair of nude sandals and a colorful clutch.
Just yesterday, we wrote about how Instagram is changing the way we shop – now enter the world of checking into a location and taking a selfie to prove that you’ve actually been there. This what it feels like when you look at the countless posts featuring the Mona Lisa, on social media platforms such as Instagram and Twitter. As one visitor states in this article by the New York Times: “A lot of people take photos and post them on Twitter or Facebook,” Ms. Li said. “It’s evidence that ‘I’ve been there.’ ”
Talia Denim Belt Jumpsuit by Pixie Market. The collar and belted addition give it a perfect tailored look, whilst the frayed hems make it look casual and ideal for a day in the city or a barbecue on the beach.
