And here are some of those things…
MZ Wallace Medium Metro Tote | yes, I want this bright yellow “daffodil” color. A non-diaper diaper bag?
Salt Strap in Duke (sold out) | I’m sort of mad at myself for giving into the hype on this one (these straps were featured in the NYT along with No6 clogs as the Brooklyn mom uniform *eyeroll* – although it was actually a good article, and addressed how we find our “communities” via our wardrobes), and believe me, I’ve looked (with help from a friend) for a suitable AVAILABLE alternative, but this one just stays in my head. The shoulder straps on my Marsell bag I carry all the time are worn out, and beyond repair (they’ve already been re-glued and have come apart again) and the longer strap it comes with is much too narrow to be comfortable on my shoulder. I’ll probably end up getting this one by Marc Jacobs instead…but man, I really love the salt straps.
Maria Tash earring – I have this one from when I got the third piercing in my right ear and love it mostly because of the thread through post; it never moves and I don’t worry about it coming loose or falling out. Right now I’m wearing my Melissa Joy Manning huggies I’ve worn for many years, a pair of simple, very small thin 14k gold J. Hannah loop earrings I bought via slowre, an ear hook by Kristen Elspeth and a staple stud earring by Kathleen Whitaker. I worry all the time about the staple stud and I’d like to replace that with something that I don’t have to worry so much about falling out. Oh, and I NEVER take my earrings out. I still love the safety pin earrings also…
Tumi belt bag – I’ve long been searching for a LARGE belt bag with LOTS of functional pockets. Tumi never lets me down, although I do wish this was available in nylon instead of leather. I would wear it crossbody, and I envision something like this being very functional when the baby comes.
Raquel Allegra maxi dress | I just love this. Sigh.
I will be wearing my Birkenstock sandals all summer I’m sure, and from what I’ve heard, your shoe size can change after pregnancy, so I’m not buying any shoes for a while. Not that I need any, of course.
So, those are just some of the things that have caught my eye recently, things I want, but probably will never buy. A girl can dream though, right? It’s a fun diversion.
Anything catching your eye lately?? What are looking for?
