LUST-HAVE LIST: November 2019 | STAINED COUTURE

Hey, November! How’s your November been going so far? Mine has been hectic, but good. This weekend was amazing, which caused me to not get much done. I haven’t washed my hair in over a week, which I’m going to do as soon as I publish this post. Also, I didn’t get to finish all my laundry or wash my makeup brushes, but I will tackle all these things before I go to bed. Not to mention, the daylight savings has thrown me off. Some people got an extra hour of sleep, but the rest of us got up and hour earlier than usual.

This month, I’m trying to cut back on my spending in order to save for holiday spending and next year. So, I’m still working on not spending too much and being mindful with my spending. Keep reading to get the details on what items I’m lusting after this month.

LUST-HAVE LIST: November 2019

  • Tinted Face Oil Foundation – The weather is getting colder and drier. My skin is usually more normal/combination in the colder months, but not this year. My skin, especially when using mineral foundation powder, has been looking might dry. I’ve heard nothing but great things about this tinted face oil from Kosas from people with dry skin. So, I really want to give this a whirl around my face.
  • Black Block-Heel Booties – My ankles and weak leg muscles are so glad that block heels are still going strong. I realize that I still haven’t gotten a simple, all black pair of ankle boots for fall and winter. I love this pair, because they will go with everything AND they are currently on sale.
  • Convertible Hobo Bag – I ready to venture off from my daily black or brown tote or satchel. I love the cool factor this Botkier bag – from the slate grey color to the interesting design. You can convert it to a shoulder bag, but I love the satchel look.
  • Warm Cotton Fragrance – This past weekend, I picked up the travel version of this scent and I’m in love! It smells like fresh laundry that was washed in Gain – I love the scent of Gain. So, I need the larger bottle.
  • Engravable Lock Pendant – Although I’m trying to collect minimalist gold jewelry, I love the look of this lock pendant from Bauble Bar. It’s the perfect mixture of minimalist jewelry with a little edge. PLUS, you can get it engraved.

Stained Couture’s monthly series, Lust-Have List, features items I’m wanting this month.

LUST-HAVE LIST: October 2019

It’s October and I’m ready for all the fall things! Despite summer being the “lazy” season, I feel more comfortable in the fall. The weather is cooler and the weekends feel way more casual and relaxing. I definitely hit my stride in the fall.

This month, I’m into neutral tones, interesting designs, and simple silhouettes. So, keep reading to see what I’m wanting this month. Plus, this is the last month, before it’s no longer about what we want. *insert jingle bells*

LUST-HAVE LIST: October 2019

  • Pattern Beauty On-the-Go-Kit – I’m so mad at myself that I still haven’t tried anything from Tracee Ellis Ross’ Pattern Beauty. I’ve been stalking their travel kit for weeks – on their site and Ulta.com. It’s sold out at all the Ulta’s in my area and I’m on all the waiting lists.
  • Pearl Hoop Earrings – Hoop earrings are my daily jewelry jam. Although they can be worn with anything, they can be a little too casual. These hoops with pearls all over add a subtle elegance to any look.
  • Snakeskin Print Sneakers – I’ve been wanting some casual, but fun looking sneakers. These sneakers from Steve Madden are just the sneakers I need for fall.
  • Nude Crossbody Chain Wallet – I need to downsize my daily purse again, which is mostly filled with things I don’t use. I’ve never used a chain wallet as a daily bag, but I could. I was able to use a super small purse everyday for months. So, this may be light work.
  • Long Sleeve V-Neck Plus Size Printed Mini Dress – For real, I need all the cute, printed flowing dresses for fall. Plus, I prefer if they are above the knee and in a fall color. I’m so into this dress from Target. It fits perfectly into my ideal look for fall.

Stained Couture’s monthly series, Lust-Have List, features items I’m wanting this month.

LUST-HAVE LIST: September 2019 | STAINED COUTURE

It’s September, which is also my birthday month! September is one of my favorite months – not just because of my birthday. I love September, because it’s when the weather starts to coll down and when Fall officially starts (September 22nd).

After such a hectic and stressful summer, I spent August slowly getting back on track. Now, in September, I’m back to consistency and sticking to schedules. I thrive when I have a usual schedule, but also room for self-care appointments. I already have a hair and nail appointment scheduled in a couple of weeks – before my birthday. Excited.

Unfortunately, as much as I wanted and hoped that cool weather would’ve showed up last month, it didn’t. However, I feel that it will show up this month and I will be ready. Most of the things that I want are fall-friendly and great transitional pieces.

LUST-HAVE LIST: September 2019

  • Rose Gold Huggie Earrings – I’m always torn on if I should let the second hole in my ears closed or not. Now, I’m thinking the latter and would love to fill them with these adorable huggie earrings. I wanted a simple pair last month, but I guess I want an extra pop with rose gold this month.
  • Glow Stick Sunscreen – Me and sunscreen are BFFs for as long as I live – it’s helped the overall look of my skin. This sunscreen also act as a highlighter, which is intriguing.
  • Plus Size Destructed Ankle Jeans – Some of my favorite jeans I’ve been wearing are destructed skinny jeans, including the ankle. However, I love this pair of Levis that only have destructed ankle.
  • Navy Suede Crossbody Tote – I love all Madewell leather bags – I carry one everyday. However, I always fancy navy suede accessories and I definitely fancy this bag.
  • Black Patent Leather Heeled Loafers – Every other Fall, I want a pair of penny loafer. This year, I want a pair, but a heeled pair. These look so classic and could break these out every year.

LUST-HAVE LIST: August 2019 | STAINED COUTURE

How was your July? Mine was exhausting, amazing, stressful, and fulfilling – to name a few. However, like I mentioned last month, it was definitely the beginning of a new chapter in my life and I’m still excited about my future.

It’s hard to believe that it’s August, which means it will be Christmas in a few weeks. Well, it will feel like it, because the rest of the year zooms by once August hits. Crazy.

Although the fall weather doesn’t tend to show up until September, that doesn’t mean that I’m not eyeing some cute style inspo or fall. However, it will be a while before I buy anything. So, you will notice that there are a coupe of fall-friendly pieces I’m wanting in this month’s Lust-Have List. If you’ve read this far, share with me something you’re hoping to buy this month in the comment.

LUST-HAVE LIST: August 2019

  • Small Twisted Gold Hoop Earrings – I have 2 holes in my ears, but I’ve been trying to keep them close to get them replaced in a different spot. Once I do, I want to put in a small gold hoop earrings likes these twisted ones from Mejuri.
  • Faux Snake Skin Ankle Strap Sandals – I’m so annoyed that I don’t have a cute pair of faux snake skin sandals and these Vince Camuto ones are perfect.
  • Small Box Satchel – I still love small bags, but I’ve been wanting a small boxy one. It would be nice if I could find one similar to this by Yuzefi – just cheaper.
  • Overnight Facial Peel – Ever since Target announced their newest skincare brand, Versed, I’ve been wanting to try it out. Currently at the top of my must-try list is the overnight peel, because I love skincare products that work overnight.
  • Crop Plus Size Plaid Trousers – Last fall, I found a pair of cropped wide leg plaid pants that I love and got plenty of compliments. This year, I want another pair, but straight leg or fitted. I spotted these on Just Fab and I think these are the one.

LUST-HAVE LIST: July 2019

Stained Couture’s monthly series, Lust-Have List, features items I’m wanting this month.

LUST-HAVE LIST: July 2019 | STAINED COUTURE

It’s July, which means we have officially reached the half-way mark of 2019. Aside for July having one of my favorite holidays and birthdays for my dad and sister, it’s the beginning of a transition going on in my life. The last few months have been mad stressful, but the stress is starting to lift this month. Lord permitting, August will be the official start of a new chapter in my life, which I’m so excited.

I haven’t been shopping much and have been hitting empty on so many products. Therefore, this list was about to be a filled with makeup and skincare, but I digress. I’ll probably do a new beauty wants post soon, instead. Thankfully, I was able to reign it in and find some other non-beauty products to want and stalk.

So, check out the few things I want this month.

LUST-HAVE LIST: July 2019

  • The Austin Crossbody Bag – This crossbody is a perfect bag for summer, because it’s not too big or small. However, the cool structured design and bright red shade will work all year.
  • Topshop Fawn Studded Platform Sandals – Do you see these sandals and how chic they look? They’re also available in black, but I can’t pass on most cognac brown leather accessories.
  • Born This Way Super Coverage Foundation – I recently ran out of my Bare Minerals foundation, which I loved to the last drop. Although I do plan to repurchase it in the future, I want to finally try to the Born This Way foundation, but the high coverage formula. I love super  coverage foundations, because they can also double as a concealer.
  • Lolita Huggie Earrings – Despite me really being into statement earrings, I can’t fight this new trend of huggie earrings. These super cute huggies from Shashi are at the top of my list and are available in red or clear. I want both, but I chose the red pair, because ruby is the birthstone for July.
  • Verb Ghost Oil – I’m currently going through my annual phase of wanting to take care of my hair. I’ve heard of Verb, but never saw a product that made me want to buy it. Well, that is until I saw this Ghost Oil, which is a daily, lightweight oil for your hair. Plus, it’s supposed to make the hair shaft feel soft and look glossy. I want it.
