my shopping list is always half wish list & half reality. :) today's ten is an excerpt from my current shopping needs/wants. p.s. when you finish you will see it's sort of a little random!
1 ~ murad clarifying cleanser. i'm in ♥ with this stuff, and right now i am running on empty. so this is a reality, and i need a new bottle stat! my skin started breaking out last year (lame), but the entire acne complex kit has been a savior. (you can get the cleanser for $26 and/or the kit for $33 at sephora.)
2 ~ michael kors watch. i need a new watch pronto! it's not that i actually NEED it to tell time, because it's definitely faster for me to whip out my phone, but i still want the option to look at my wrist if i choose to :) that being said, i've always been a fan of men's oversized watches for women. i want a classic style, and that's where mr. kors comes in. (hopefully i'm purchasing this one from shopbop for $250.)
3 ~ west elm safari rug. to bring some pattern in our master bedroom (which you saw the inspiration for in my painting blues post), i want to get this rug. since my color scheme is a mix of blues, whites, greys, and touches of brown... i thought this was perfect. (starting at $99 for a 3 x 5, available at west elm.)
4 ~ black boots. my current ones need to be retired, which means the search is on for a new favorite pair. i really need something that can be worn with lots of things, and i like the boot height on these two. (both styles are $298 & available at free people) which do you like best?
5 ~ l'oreal everpure. i usually mix up my hair care products, but lately i've been stuck on the everpure line. it's a cheap find that helps maintain my color & i love that it's a vegan formula with no sulfates. it's also a plus, since i'm not really a floral scent girl, that these smell a little more earthy. (you can get the set for $11.98 online at target or each one for $5.99 in store)
(p.s. confession ~ i also ♥ wen's sweet almond cleansing conditioner. my lovely mama sent me a bottle, and although it's a lengthy process, the results are worth it! i'm just as hooked on this stuff, but due to the price (about $45 for the big bottle if you buy from qvc) & the amount i need for one wash (minimum 48 pumps ~ because i am currently rapunzle) i don't think i'll be able to keep using it forever.)
6 ~ grey men's blazer. this look, shot by the sartorialist, may have been taken in madrid, but it's definitely great for the fall weather in LA. i found the top right at urban which i ♥ because it has elbow patches! the bottom right is by juicy couture, but does cost a bit more. (the top jkt is on sale for $49 at urban outfitters & the bottom one is $298 at revolve clothing & shopbop.)
7 ~ christmas tree. the mister and i have never actually gotten a tree put up, mainly because we've always spent christmas back home in illinois. however, this year it's a very real possibility that we will be stuck in california for the holidays. either way, i'm determined to put up a tree! most likely it will be fake (sad i know), but it will be much cheaper. what about you... real or fake?
8 ~ cartier ring. this has to be filed under wish list. i am lusting after both of these rings. the first is the most realistic, but the second has my heart. i've made the mister aware that maybe he should be saving :) but it'd be awesome if i could buy myself one (the first is $800 & second is $1,425, available at cartier.)
9 ~ fair isle oversized cardigan. i am totally digging the one erin wasson (i ♥ her) rocked in the november issue of jalouse. this sweater is from the french brand heimstone, but i can't find it for sale online. it's probably out of my budget anyway, so i'll be looking for a cheaper version over at h&m!
10 ~ music. even though i understand that it's unfair to the industry, i used limewire. it was free, and free fits into my tiny budget. since limewire is gone, and i haven't found a replacement, now i have to pay. i don't download thousands of songs, but every now and then one comes along that i really want, and i've already noticed $1.29 - $1.99 per song adds up. sad for my wallet. :/
