LUST-HAVE LIST: January 2022 | STAINED COUTURE

So…how has 2022 been treating you so far? As you may be able to tell how late this month’s Lust-Have List, my new year has started off a little hectic. However, I’m still striving and thriving with no intentions to let up. Better late than never is definitely my life motto and for 2022.

I always say that my December Lust-Have Lists are Christmas wishlists. Well, I guess I can consider the January Lust-Have List as a list of things I wish I got for Christmas. So, keep reading to see what I wish I got for Christmas a.k.a my January 2022 Lust-Have List.

LUST-HAVE LIST: January 2022

  • Olay Regenerist Night Recovery Cream – I’m in need of a good night cream and want to try a good drugstore night cream. When Olay released these cream a couple years ago, it was all over my social feeds. Since most, if not all, were paid promotions – I decided to give it a minute to try. However, the reviews are still pretty great and I’m ready to try it.
  • Nesting Coffee Table – I’ve been eyeing this nesting coffee table from Ikea for the past few months. I told myself that I would buy it after the holidays, but it won’t be back in stock at my Ikea for another 2 weeks. As soon as I see it’s back, I’m going to go buy it.
  • Vegan Leather Hoodie – I love casual pieces that can also be worn in more professional or not so lax settings. This vegan leather hoodies from Fabletics definitely works. Plus, it goes from sizes XXS-4X!
  • White Hiker Boots – I’m obsessed with this boots! I might end up ordering this soon, because I have some JustFab credits. However, if these are as optic white as they appear online, I’m going to wear them non-stop.

LUST-HAVE LIST: December 2021 | STAINED COUTURE

Sorry, this post was late and I was MIA last week, but ya girl caught a horrible head cold. It was bad, but the fact that I hadn’t been sick in a couple of  years is what made it worst. I started feeling it late on Tuesday, but it kicked in on Wednesday. So, I’ve been laying low and self-medicating, which paid off because I feel better. As of this morning, I’m back to about 90% – I still have to get rid of this slight cough and my voice is kinda strained. Still, I feel better than I did 3 days ago and that’s a win.

Although it’s almost a week late, here is my Lust-Have List for December. Like my Lust-Have list for my birthday month, this can be considered a Christmas wishlist. Unfortunately, I didn’t tell anyone these are things that I’m wanting. So, I will probably have to try to score this myself during those after-Christmas sales.

Anyway, here are the items that I’m wanting this month.

LUST-HAVE LIST: December 2021

  • Fleece-lined Leggings – A couple of weeks ago I decided to try to start going on morning walks again. Unfortunately, I got this desire to do on a morning when it was 30 degrees outside. I quickly realized that the compression leggings I wore in the summer and fall wouldn’t work. So, these fleece lined leggings from Old Navy are definitely at the top of my list
  • On Cloud Black Sneakers – I didn’t hear about On Cloud until this year, but now I want a pair. Actually, since I pretty much walked my soles thin on my other walking shoes, these are a need, too.
  • Double Old Fashion Whiskey Glasses – Finally got around to setting up my home bar cart and it’s gold theme. So, these gold-trimmed whiskey glasses will be perfect. Plus, I love the old fashion detailed, because it looks like the ones my parents had growing up.
  • Cat Eye Blue Light Blocking Glasses – Like most people, I stare at some sort of screen most of the day. So, it’s time that I get a pair glasses to help block the blue light. Loving the thin frame of these I spotted over on Amazon.
  • Rose Gold Rope Bracelet – Last week, I finally replaced my standard silicone apple watch band with a chicer rose gold band. Love it, but think I’ll love it more it was paired with this thin rose gold rope bracelet.

LUST-HAVE LIST: November 2021

LUST-HAVE LIST: November 2021

LUST-HAVE LIST: November 2021 | STAINED COUTURE

Well, it’s November and that still feels wrong! It really feels like July was a couple of weeks ago, but it’s about to be a whole new year in less than 2 months. Although it feels weird, I’m ready for the holiday cheer. Like I mentioned before, this year is going to be a redo for last year’s “stress fest” that was my life in December 2020.

To prep myself for the holidays, I’ve decided to dedicate the next 2 weeks to some pre-holiday self-care. However, this self-care involves handling some adult business *coughs “IRS”* and adding some more vibes to my everyday space before tossing Christmas all over the place. Speaking of, after much consideration, I have decided to buy a Christmas tree this year. Ever since I moved out out the house my sister and I shared a few years, I never bought a tree. I usually go to other’s homes to give and open gifts, which made getting a tree seem unnecessary.

However, I want a tree this year because it’s the epicenter of Christmas decorations and I’m excited to decorate. I haven’t decide the color theme or even how tall of a tree I want, but it’s happening. Oh, and it will be artificial, because my life isn’t set up to maintain a real tree. Let me master a fiddle leaf first and then we will talk about a fresh tree in my living room.

I think the list of items on my November Lust-Have List is a perfect blend of cozy, but adult vibes. Check out the details below.

LUST-HAVE LIST: November 2021

  • Plus Size Tailored Camel Coat – I need a camel coat, because they are great to dress up or down. Plus, I’m loving the cuffs on this one from ASOS.
  • Dior Red Velvet Lipstick – I can never have too many red lipsticks, but this red velvet finish lipstick from Dior will put me at peak rich auntie mode.
  • Retinol and Dark Spot Treatment – Too many breakouts over the summer left some scars. They’ve been fading, but I would like to give this a try.
  • Plaid Thermal Set – It’s gotten cold already here in Memphis. So, I’m ready to start throwing some thermals on when I get home from work. Old Navy for the win,
  • Happy Face Slippers and Socks – First spotted these slippers on TikTok earlier this year and thought they were cute. Now, I’m obsessed and need them.

LUST-HAVE LIST: October 2021

LUST-HAVE LIST: October 2021

LUST-HAVE LIST: October 2021 | STAINED COUTURE

Happy October and the beginning of spooky season! Not sure what has gotten into me, but…I think I’m want to partake in some spooky things. Of course, I will hit up a couple of pumpkin patches, but I craving some spooky things. Last year, Covid halted most “haunted” most experiences, but maybe there will be more options this year. We shall see.

October also means that month long spending freeze ended. Last month, I didn’t buy any new clothes and the little beauty products I did buy were necessities and with beauty discounts and gift cards. Therefore, I have some making up to do, because my wardrobe has been depressing me. It’s just too casual – sweats and tie dye tees – and not enough timeless and classic pieces. Plus, I need some new boots in all shapes and styles.

Honestly, this month’s Lust-Have List could’ve been nothing but clothes. However, I want and need more than clothes and you will be able to tell. So, check out the things at the top of my Lust-Have List for October.

LUST-HAVE LIST: October 2021

  • Laniege Moisture Cream – I picked this laniege moisture products for my birthday gift from Sephora. Since I love the Laniege hydrating toner, I wanted to test their moisture cream. It did not let me down. It’s lightweight and moisturizes the skin so good. So, I need to buy the full-size ASAP!
  • Ally Tall Stiletto Boot – Of course, spooky season is also the beginning of boot season. The tall faux leather boots from the JustFab x Ayesha Curry collection are perfect! They’re so perfect that they also come in gold AND for wide calf sizes.
  • Plaid Double-breasted Overcoat – This coat from the Nini Lotan x Target reminds me of my coat from 3rd grade that mom bought me from Sears. It came with a red scarf and it was popular. So, yes, I want this coat. Correction: I need this coat.
  • Bamboo B Card Holder – After years of using a key wallet, I’m ready to break the team up and have my wallet go solo. I really want a card holder, because I mostly carry cards in my wallet. So, no need for the extra space. Love this Brandon Blackwood Card holder with the bamboo earring trim. Dope.
  • Pink Glass Decanter – This decanter from West Elm is gorgeous and available in a few different hues. However, I love the softness of this pink. What I don’t love is the price tag, but I’m hoping to find a cheaper alternative or this one in the local West Elm outlet soon. *fingers crossed*

LUST-HAVE LIST: September 2021

LUST-HAVE LIST: September 2021

LUST-HAVE LIST: September 2021 | STAINED COUTURE

Happy September, which I’m pretty sure it’s my favorite month! Not only does September contain the official start of my favorite season, Fall, but it’s also my birthday. I’m excited, because I finally figured out the best gift to give myself myself this year. However, I’m going to share that in an upcoming post -probably tomorrow.

As usual, my September Lust-Have List is basically just a birthday wishlist that I send to my loved ones. Although I’ve never gotten everything on the list, I do get a couple every year. So, keep reading to see what’s on my birthday wishlist/ the September 2021 Lust-Have List.

LUST-HAVE LIST: September 2021

  • Small Leather Zip-Top Crossbody – I will always recommend Madewell for quality, timeless, and affordable leather bag. I love the shape of this crossbody – it’s simple but unique. Plus, you can get it monogrammed.
  • Diamond Cartilage Huggie Earring – I’ve been itching to get some piercing , especially a cuffed one. When I do, I’m going to get a gold and diamond cuff like this one from Adina Jewels. That way, I never have to worry about taking it out.
  • Wide Leg Black Floral Pants – Although the calendar says that it’s Fall, the Fall temps don’t usually show up until October. So, having transitional pieces for Summer to Fall are key. These wide leg pants will work for warm and cool weather. Will look fab paired with a white tank and denim jacket.
  • Gloss Bomb Heat Lip Luminizer + Plumper – When I go pick up my free birthday gift from Sephora, I’m buying this Fenty lipgloss that’s also plumps the lips. Plus, the color is universal and I can’t go wrong with a coral lip.
  • Chain Pointed Toe Slide – I need another pair of flat slides for fall. Loving the tweed print and chunky chain detail – the perfect fall mule. Plus, it’s comes in plenty of color options.
