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

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.

LUST-HAVE LIST: June 2019

It’s June and I’m so anxious for this month, because I have a feeling some major things are going to happen in my life this month. Well, I’m praying for some big BIG things to move in my life this month. Even they don’t, the reason won’t be have anything to do with my grind.

Other than working my butt off, I really want to become more mindful of my feelings. Since I try to avoid conflict as much as possible, sometimes I suppress my feelings just to remove myself from any possible. Unfortunately, those feelings and thoughts can linger with me days after the conversation has ended. So, yeah, being more verbal with how people make me feel is something I’m working on for June.

Another thing I’m working on is trying to perfect my cool, relax looks for the summer. This is going to be one super hot summer and I’m just trying to look as cute as I can fighting a stream of sweat from rolling my face. Keep reading to see what items I’m coveting this month.

  • Inst-Grip Jelly Makeup Primer – Since I’ve realized that Dermablend makeup is pretty amazing, I’ve been wanting to try more from them. Theire new primer is at the top of the list. What has interested me is that it’s a jelly primer and I love the pump applicator.
  • Mamonde Deep Pore Cleanser Stick – A couple of years ago, I was obsessed with face cleansing sticks, but it’s been a while since I used. I’ve been having some congestion on my cheeks, which is caused from make-up setting up shop in my large pores. So, I’m itching to try this deep cleansing stick from the K-Beauty brand, Mamonde.
  • Melissa Papete + Rider Sandals – Ever since I saw Derria of What Would Derria Wear these sandals in yellow and neon orange, I’ve been obsessed with them. Unfortunately, I can’t find them in my size in that color combo. I’m still looking, but I do fancy them in the white and clear vinyl colorways, too. Plus, it has a gentle trim of yellow, which I love.
  • Vinyl Shopper – I feel like I’ve been eyeing cute vinyl bags for years, but I still haven’t bought one. Maybe this vinyl shopper from Zara will break the curse. I the juxtaposition of a clean design paired with a interesting smoky pink vinyl material. Plus, I love how you can remove the strap carry it as a satchel.
  • Beyond The Stars Bun Pin – If you ever run into me on any given day, there’s a 99% chance that my hair will be in some form of a bun. So, since I can’t give up this lazy girl hairstyle, I might as well glam it up a bit. Kitsch, the online mecca of cute hair accessories, have these gorgeous bun pins. You can style that bun on the crown of your head with an accessory that looks like a crown. So adorable.

It’s May! Oddly, April felt like it lasted forever, which is weird. However, that’s old news, because we have made it to a new month!

  • SUPERGOOP! Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40, $32, Sephora – I wear sunscreen everyday and apply it numerous times when I know I’m going to be outside for an extended time. This SUPERGOOP! is the sunscreen of choice for a lot of estheticians and dermatologists I follow online. So,I feel like I need to try it.
  • Blakely Platform Sandal, $135, Nordstrom – Last year, I noticed that athletic sandals were slowly coming back. However, they are everywhere this year and I want in. Loving this nude pair by JSlides, which are chic for such a sporty look.
  • Felizia Personalized Wrap Bracelet, $42, Bauble Bar – A few years ago, I was hardcore into wearing stacks of thin bracelets, including a few friendship ones. I’m feeling this look again and would love to start with this personalize one, which you can add up 8 letters. However, I love the look of just one letter, too.
  • Net Market Tote, $3, Brandless – Brandless has really taken off since I first learned of them a couple of years ago, especially with the range of products they offer. I love that they now offer net totes, which are my prefer bag of choice for Saturday morning farmer’s market adventures.
  • Stress Less, Accomplish More, $17, Amazon – My stress has been flaring up more than usually, but I’m very good at dealing with it. Still, it doesn’t hurt to learn more ways to stress less and get more things done. This book looks to like it would help.
