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?
Since it’s officially SALE season, this week’s feature will solely include items marked down – starting with: this high-waist, high-cut one shoulder piece by Hunza G is one of these versatile summer pieces we like to stock up on! Forget the beach, this one-piece can be worn from day to night by simply adding a wave-print midi skirt or a pair of denim cut-offs for a more relaxed look. It’s also marked down, and the warm raspberry hue is giving us major fruit salad vibes! Match it with a pair of Mercedes Salazar hoop earrings with dangling cherries and you’re ready for your next brunch!
In last week’s edition of Want, Need, Read Wear, we urged you to at least browse through the stunning beach photographs in Gray Malin’s Beaches coffee table book. But we might not all have the right piece of furniture upon which to lay it on – that’s why this week we’re supporting said purchase of book by recommending you this marked down coffee table by the one retailer where we always seem to walk in for a quick pack of dental floss and end up with a full cart! Also, the two floors are perfect for stacking more living room essentials!
You’ve got your bikini, a one-piece swimsuit for after lunch, your favorite wide-brimmed straw hat, and the perfect beach tote – what’s missing? A good read that is! And since we haven’t yet recommended any thrillers, let this be a new beginning. This newly published novel by Bill Clinton and acclaimed, best-selling author James Patterson is about an imminent threat looming over the United States, followed by fear and uncertainty in the heart of Washington. If you’re into Designated Survivor, then this book is a sure winner!
When we hear the word summer, we know it’s time to bring out colorful accessories and seasonal materials like wicker and raffia. This year, we’re really into creative pieces that incorporate fruits (see above), so you can imagine our delight when we came across this delightfully practical crossbody pineapple novelty bag, marked down to 40%. It’s guaranteed to turn heads at your next wedding invite!
What’s on your wish-list?
