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?
As we enter a new year, we’re already looking forward to ditching our winter coats and replacing them with lightweight jackets that keep us both warm and stylish. Next season, we want all things fringes – and this wool blazer by Mango (currently on sale!) ticks all the boxes. Count on us to wear it layered over turtlenecks as pictured below, as well as with a cropped t-shirt or going out top when the weather permits!
It’s time to ditch your gel manicure and enter the world of express drying. One of our favorite nail polish companies, Essie, has launched their latest product aptly called Expressie. The new varnish will dry your nails faster than ever, which means you’ll spend less time at the salon – if any at all! For all busy ladies out there who prefer to opt no color for fear of smudging, get back on the trend and pick your color for the season!
You probably had the chance to get through a good fiction book or biography over the holidays, but now it’s time to spruce up your coffee table book selection with a new find. This week, we’re obsessing over this impressive book about the 100 best burgundy wines. Master of wine Jeannie Cho Lee helps us wine aficionados learn and explore some of Burgundy’s top wines – between illustrations and detailed breakdowns, you’ll have plenty to discuss over your next friendly catch up!
Ear cuffs are the hidden gem of jewellery – it’s like they’ve always been around but people have focused more on dangling earrings, rings, chunky necklaces and bracelets. Now that they’re gaining popularity, we love to add them to a simple outfit for a little spice! Wear this set of two gold-plated ear cuffs with a plain tee and jeans, and you’ll instantly feel dressed up – no need to add anything else!
What’s on your wish-list?
