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?
Full disclosure: this week’s segment is *very* accessories and all things beautiful centric. Starting with the most fabulous clutch for this upcoming holiday season. We just recently discovered Mae Cassidy’s designs and want all of them! The collection is inspired by Bollywood and features delicate embroidery, silk-lined interiors and embellished with bright fuchsia and bell charms. With this on hand, you’ll hardly need any other jewellery!
It’s no secret that we’ve been big followers of organic makeup brand Ilia ever since we tried their illuminator stick. Easy to use, and with just a hint of shimmer, it’s ideal to wear on the regular. Now we found another product we desperately want to add to our shopping cart! This multi-use functional product is to enhance everything you wish – cheek, lips, eyes! The texture is light, not over powering and leaves a matte finish; true to the company’s mission, all ingredients are vegan and cruelty and fragrance-free.
Whilst we just entered a new season, we’re already longing for our next vacation. This series by Taschen offers the best selection of destinations in Asia, Africa and South America – what more could you ask for? Get ready to be influenced by the hidden gems from all 3 continents, making it perhaps more difficult to choose just one place to fly to! But on the plus side, they’ll leave plenty of inspiration for the future, and make a great coffee table book!
I didn’t lie when I said this segment was heavily accessories populated! Jennifer Behr has been creating whimsical and decorative head pieces for a long time, but we had yet to settle on one for fall/winter that wasn’t pearls or tiara-ish. Not only is lamé trending, but a simple bow tie is sometimes all we need to spruce up a look and this one definitely does the job!
What’s on your wish-list?
