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?
The summer sale has officially begun on all our go-to retail e-commerces, and we’ve got our hands full! For starters however, we want to introduce you to the only white button down you could possibly need in your closets – it’s a tad oversized, slight puffed sleeves and as crisp as it is elegant. It’s also 30% off and adds a fresh take on a regular wardrobe staple.
Practical, easy and chic underwear is all we really wish for, especially during summer time. Whether it’s the temperatures rising, sand stuck to your body long after the beach or rushing from a daytime meeting to an evening meet-up, comfort is key. These mesh thongs will provide just that – and they come in 3 color ways perfect to wear no matter your outfit. Trust me, you can never have enough panties, and perhaps you’re right in the mood to freshen up your current selection!
This book came recommended to us by a dear friend after we shared stories about moving into a new home, the process of building, decorating and in general settling into a new environment. Though the book is a bit dated, it is so relevant to anyone going through the above. Brilliantly written, Christopher Alexander shares his insights on urban design, planning, and the environment you submerge yourself in. The chapters are short and easy to read – we recommend to keep one copy at home for you and another to gift your neighbor/friend/family member.
You may be a foundation type of gal, and maybe you’ve never put any on your entire life. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try Gucci Westman’s line of foundation sticks. The famous makeup artist introduces us to a variety of shades to blend into your skin in order to even out and balance out your skin tone. Expect to be pleasantly surprised, not forgetting that her products are completely made without parabans, silicones and other things you don’t want to get absorbed by your skin. What’s more, she offers 11 shades so don’t worry about not finding your fit right away!
What’s on your wish-list?
