Currently Coveting: 11th of March - 18th of March

Monday, 11 March 2013


I can not remember the last time I did a Currently Coveting post! I don't know why I stopped doing them in all honesty so here is one after a very long period of time without creating a collage full of my most lust worthy items that I would love to get my little hands on! 

1. Sass & Bide Two Dimensions Tailored Jacket with Peplum Detail - A plunging neckline, a perfect combination of contrasting monochromatic colours and of course a peplum what more could you ask for from Sass & Bide. They truly have nailed a minimalistic yet statement making jacket which of course Sass & Bide does! Wear dressed up over an LBD, a pair of jaw dropping black patent stilettos and a stunning clutch for the night or make it a bit more casual with a simple Tee (Did I hear a Celine Tee being mentioned!?) a pair of skin hugging jeans, metallic flats, a oversized awe inspiring bag and of course a statement ring that leaves people sighing at the sheer sight of it. 

2. Alexander Wang Cropped Leather Top - I am simply in love with all the leather that is around at the moment from pants, to jackets, to skirts and I can't forget to mention tops! There is something about a nice leather top that adds a completely different element to a look - A toughness or even an edginess is layered upon whatever you may be wearing once you add that touch of leather to your look. For me this Alexander Wang leather crop would be my go to piece when it came to me wanting to add leather to whatever I may be wearing. Versatile in the fact that you can dress it up or down, wear with a pencil skirt, a pleated skirt, a pair of high waisted silk printed trousers or a pair of shorts: The possibilities are endless!

3. Rag & Bone The Grand Prix Motocross Jean - Ever since laying eyes on these beauties when Jess from Tuulavintage uploaded a picture of her wearing them on the streets of New York - I fell instantly in love. What I would do to have these in my wardrobe! An effortless colour of chalk white with a contrast panel in black then accentuated with leather detailing, adding a complete rock edge to this statement jean. 

4. Nly Accessories Heavy Chain Bracelet - Chunky gold chain that sits pretty on your wrist - Making a statement within itself but being completely simplistic and classic on the other. To me this is a match made in heaven. 

5. Saint Laurent Arty Oval Ring - Obsessed would be an understatement when explaining my love for these rings, I currently own one that being in coral and I can assure you I will be adding to the collection (and keep on adding) It is my jewellery staple, I literally do not leave the house without putting it on and I can't stand the feeling of not having it sitting on my pretty in its shining glory. The question is what colour do I buy next!?

6. Elie Saab La Parfum, Eu de parfum - A harmonious mix of white flowers, cedar wood and a subtle touch of honey creates a feminine scent taking you from everyday wear to that glorious evening gown. One of my favourite perfumes, I have a sample sitting in my handbag so every time I dig to the bottom I am left with a trail of this perfume wafting through the air. 

7. Givenchy Pandora Medium Tote - Black goat skin, rounded top handles, silver tone hardware and a detachable shoulder strap to add to that cool street style look that this bag gives out - It is just simply to perfect, a mix of cool and classic this bag for me will simply never date. The simple structure and the way it moulds to the persons body that is wearing it to me is just divine. 

8. Christian Louboutin Druide - Something I just do when I am sitting around is go on my favourite brands websites and dream - A whirl of shoes whirled around my head as I continued to scroll down the endless pages on the Christian Louboutin website, while asking myself over and over again "Why am I doing this to myself?"While scrolling these stopped me dead in my tracks, I sat there in sheer awe of what was before me: A perfect pair of Louboutin flats (not surprising really being Louboutins!)
Gold *check* Slight heel *check* and spikes *check!*. A combination of three of what for me makes a perfect pair of shoes that I must say I would wear everyday! This then reminded me of why I sit there in my room, cup of tea in hand, not breaking focus of all the oh so pretty things on my computer screen that I sadly can't afford (yet anyway) These are the things that keep me going, to make me work hard, stay determined and fight for my dreams!

  2. Love and wish I could have everything! These Rag & Bone pants were a part of my post today. I actually found a couple pants that were similar for less (from Asos and Nasty Gal)!
