One day you will be mine...


One thing I've noticed about my shopping behavior over the last few weeks is that it's been a bit on the impulsive side. Thankfully for my wallet, many of these impulses have not resulted in purchases, (okay, maybe one... or two... no more than three...) but they have made me be more mindful of my shopping ways. 

Oddly enough, when it comes to shopping, I am really not an impulse shopper. I often think, and maybe over think, a purchase, considering things like how and where I will wear something, how much wear I could possibly get from it,  cost per wear (CPW), materials, etc. It can be an arduous process, but I'm just going to say it's a learned trait from my parents of going for quality over quantity. 

All of that brings us to my wishlist. Over the years, there have been certain items that I just can't help but fall in love with. I've thought long and hard about them, consider their quality, CPW, and versatility. I've tried them on in stores and worn them in my head. They are items that I truly love and know that I will get a ton of use from, and one day, they will be pleasant additions to my wardrobe. 

ONE  The first designer I ever learned about was Coco Chanel. I can't remember how or when I did, but I've loved Chanel ever since. After doing a profile on Coco Chanel for a history project, I discovered and immediately fell in love with the 2.55 and classic flap bags. I've wanted a Chanel bag ever since and consider it to be the ultimate addition. 

TWO In addition to bags, I've always loved the look of Chanel jewelry, especially the vintage necklaces. I love the versatility (many double as belts!) and bit of sophistication they add to just about any outfit. 

THREE When it comes to a single item of clothing, I don't think there is anything more iconic than a Diane von Furstenberg wrap dress. No matter one's age, size, or style, it's truly one of the most wearable pieces of clothing ever, and a piece I've wished I already had in my closet on a number of occasions. While I may purchase other DVF items in the meantime, I am purposely saving the purchase of a DVF wrap for when I land my "big girl job." 

FOUR Ever since it's debut in the early 2,000's, I've dreamed of owning a Balenciaga city bag. I love the leather, the shape, and the way that it compliments my style. I was very close to owning one a few years ago, but I did something stupid like put the money into my savings. I won't make that mistake twice!

FIVE Worn by the likes of Audrey Hepburn, Sophia Loren, and Princess Diana, Ferragamo flats are as classic as one could possibly get when it comes to footwear. As an avid flat wearer, I know these beauties would get a lot of wear, and I've already styled them in my head with a number of outfits from jeans and skirts, for day or night. 

I've shared mine, now it's your turn. What are some of your "one day" items? SPILL! 


  1. So... last year I bought a pair of purple ferragamo bow flats for about 200 brand new at Bloomies. They still sell them for full price every where else. Keep an eye out for season colors to go on sale.. and I want them in every color of the rainbow.

    I've always wanted a kelly or birkin (yeah right) and a chanel flap bag. And of course a diamond solitaire necklace. ahhh I should probably win the lotto!

  2. A classic quilted Chanel bag has always been on my "wish" list, although it'll never happen!
