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 term sweater weather has been more visible in our inboxes than in the past years and I wonder why? It’s obviously knitwear season considering the drop in temperatures, but does this mean more people are leaning towards warm sweaters instead of tops and cardigans? If that’s the case, we’ve got the only one you need, courtesy of H&M. Made from a blend of wool and alpaca, and available in 9 colours, this crew neck staple is a must!
No makeup bag is truly complete without a solid mascara, giving you a bold look whilst making your lashes look as though they were glued on. Even though we’ve significantly reduced our skincare routine and have eliminated extra steps such as thick foundation and eye shadow, a mascara is still one of the only 3 things we will never leave the house without. Now, if you’ve been hooked on the clean beauty trend as much as we have, you’ll notice that we slowly turned our entire makeup routine to makeup brands that promise to steer clear of any nasties. This product by Kjaer Weis is our latest find and guarantees luscious lashes in a whim!
When a world known woman with great fashion style and an enviable closet turns to home design, you can be assured that heads will turn. Famously known for 60s-inspired collections, Lisa Perry showcases her private homes in this latest book by Assouline – ranging from her own Manhattan penthouse to a studio in SoHo, and various off-sites around the world. Besides having excellent taste in both fashion and interior design, Perry has now moved on to the process buying, renovating and ultimately decorating new homes – giving her an extra edge when selling her unique and signature style.
However, if you’re not quite jumping onto the sweater boat, how about we try to win you over with a chic wrap blouse? The colour says I’m neutral and easy going, and the style says I’m ready for anything – a combination we are not hating. But seriously, it’s a great top to wear year round, and it comes in black too if that’s more your jam!
What’s on your wish-list?
