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?
Retro swimwear featuring high waisted briefs that tuck in those extra fries you ordered at lunch, is all we can talk about when discussing our next purchase. Since bikini season isn’t too far off anymore, we’re highlighting one of our favorites. This striped style comes in 3 different shades and looks as comfortable as it looks sultry! We particularly love the bandeau style top with slim straps, easy to pop down to avoid tanning lines!
An all natural deodorant was never something we felt the need to switch to, until we noticed that our usual go-to choice wasn’t being as efficient as one would hope. After trying a bunch of other ones, from the popular drugstore kind or higher priced ones, none would do the job properly. We discovered Kopari a few months ago after reading review after review where its customers were swooning over its efficiency and pleasant smell. There’s no going back now, and here’s the chance for you to try it too!
The title alone made us buy this book – punchy, shockingly true and a wake up call for many. Written by Kelly Oxford, this compilation of short stories give you a raw insight into Oxford’s life, the highs just as much as its lows. You’ll be mortified at times which can lead to weird grimaces if spotted reading on the subway, bu most importantly you’ll laugh. And right now, that’s all we need a little more of. PS: if you can make fun of yourself, this is for you!
Just as “something blue” is traditionally included on a bride’s wedding day, so is a little something red to start off the day with a smile. We love anything Staud, so when we spotted our favorite bucket bag in this fiery red, it was hard to resist. Just look at how good it looks with an all-white outfit! We plan on wearing it dressed up or down right through the next months.
What’s on your wish-list?
