LUST-HAVE LIST: June 2024 | STAINED COUTURE

June might become one of my favorite months because it officially welcomes Summer on June 20th. I’m usually not hyped for summer, because I don’t like being hot. However, I spent a lot of time outside last summer and enjoyed it. Therefore, I want to see what I can enjoy it again. lol We shall see! June also begins the list of birthdays of my loved ones – my childhood bestie (10th) and oldest nephew (16th) kick it off.

As I think about it, maybe I’m not ready. I think I will be after a couple trips to the pool. As of this moment, I don’t have any plans for a summer vacation, yet. Of course, things may change and that’s a little exciting.

To be honest, I’m really craving a lazy summer of going with the flow and hopefully a nice tan and muscles. An easy, lazy summer sounds perfect and I think all the items in this month’s Lust-Have List reflect the vibe I’m aiming to have.

LUST-HAVE LIST: June 2024

  • Mini Raffia Bucket Bag – I think a raffia bag is the perfect nude bag for summer. Personally, I’m obsessed with this mini raffia bag, because it’s so chic.
  • Overtone in Ginger duo – I want to add more pop to my dark copper hair without lightening it. I tried the sample size of this coloring conditioner and the results were good. It  was a small amount, but I want to try the duo to see will it give me what I envision.
  • Linen Pullover shirt – I live for a good pullover linen shirt for the summer and this one from H&M looks perfect for work or play.
  • PHLUR Missing Person – Last year, I got a sample of this perfume but decided on another scent. The scent has lingered in my heart ever since and got body spray that smells just like it. So, now I feel like I need the perfume even more now.
  • Flat Hoop Earrings – I’m getting into my slick hair bun era and these flat hoops will compliment it so well!

LUST-HAVE LIST: May 2024 | STAINED COUTURE

Happy May! I know the Lust-Have List for May is over a week late, but your girl has been busy. Work and life have been jumping me every other day. So much so, the dates have been sliding in and out of my calendar. Thankfully, I’ve been working hard to get everything back on track.

You may be able to tell my the items in this month’s Lust-Have List, but I’m ready for summer. Spring is one of my favorite seasons, but I didn’t get to enjoy it much. Therefore, I’m going to summer like I’ve never summer before! I’m not sure I want to take a vacation, but I have couple of ideas and even someone I’m thinking of going with ;)!

In the meantime, here are some things I’ve been eyeing lately.

LUST-HAVE LIST: May 2024

  • Woven Natural Tote – I love a good natural wicker purse, especially with contrasting brown leather.
  • Gut Detox & Cleanse book – For the past couple of years, I’ve been trying to focus more on gut health. A documentary I recently watched has mad me want to step it up. I think this book is great starting point to learn more.
  • Tinted Red Lip Oil – I already have and love this lip oil in pink quartz, which is a nice natural pink lip. However, I can’t pass you a cherry lip oil, which means I need this one, too.
  • Poolside Terry Shorts – In the past, I would only wea shorts to immediately put on before and after the pool to avoid showing my legs. Now, I don’t care and wear almost everyday in the summer. I would love to add these terry shorts to the rotation this summer.
  • Chunky Black Birkenstocks -If there was one shoe that I think I could live in all summer, it would be these chunky Birks. I’m obsessed!

LUST-HAVE LIST: April 2024 | STAINED COUTURE

It’s April and despite a few rainy days here and there, April is usually lovely month to enjoy. The weather is nice and makes you just want to be out in the sun and catch a good breeze here and there. It’s almost time hanging out on the patio after work and going to local farmer markets on the weekend. I can’t wait to enjoy this season ; rain or shine!

I’m so ready for this month and all the things that come with it. The items in this month’s Lust-Have List might give an insight into any plans. However, it does show you how I want to look. So, take a look at the things I’m currently wanting in this month’s Lust-Have List.

LUST-HAVE LIST: April 2024

  • Herbivore Nova Vitamin C serum – I recently noticed that my skin has been looking dull then remembered I never replaced my vitamin C serum. However, I want to try this new one from Herbivore, because I already use the eye cream from this line.
  • Chunky Gold Drop Earrings – I’ve been wanting to get into the large post earrings and this pair off Amazon would make gentle entrance into this style of earrings.
  • Short Sleeve Swing Tunic Mini Dress – It’s spring which means I’ve started to look for cute, easy dresses that I can try on for work or running errands. Love the look and of this dress from Anthropologie.
  • Mini Bucket Bag – If you know me, you know I love mini purses. Currently, I’ve been obsessing over the look of mini buckets, especially this one from Madewell.
  • Wide Leg Dad Pants – If I can’t spend everyday in a cute dress, then these wide leg dad pants will work just as well. The look so chic dressed up or down.

LUST-HAVE LIST: March 2024

LUST-HAVE LIST: March 2024

LUST-HAVE LIST: March 2024 | STAINED COUTURE

For February to have an extra day this year, it still shorter than usual. So much, this month’s Lust-Have List crept up on me. Better late than never or in the middle of the month. Although it’s not technically spring until March 19th, the weather has been acting like it’s already here. Therefore, this month’s Lust-Have List is mostly leaning towards Spring being here already.

So, keep reading to see what I’m eyeing for this month and most of Spring. Is that a leather jacket I want in March?! Well, keep reading to find out. 😉

LUST-HAVE LIST: March 2024

  • Coated Bomber Jacket – Weird that I would want a new  coat in March, but we usually get one more big chill in March. This faux would pair to layer with a denim skirt or leggings and oversized t-shirt.
  • Paula’s Choice Mandelic Acid Liquid Exfoliant – I love PC AHA/BHA liquid exfoliant, which makes me want to try this one from them. It’s supposed to be more gentle, but with more benefits. It even touts that it can reverse damage skin barrier. Consider me intrigued.
  • Midi Denim Skirt – I saw this skirt in Target a couple of weeks ago and immediately knew I want it for my spring wardrobe. Perfect for a casual work day or weekend friend dates.
  • New Balance 2002R – A new New Balance store recently opened up near me and I need to run in to see if they have this pair. I’ve been wanting a pair of New Balance and I think this is the pair I want. Plus I need a new pair of all white sneakers.
  • Denim Tabby Shoulder Bag – One of my fav fashion influencers shared this bag on her IG stories and it’s been living rent free in my mind and heart since then. I’m obsessed!

LUST-HAVE LIST: February 2024 | STAINED COUTURE

I know we say this every year, but January was long! However, I’m looking forward to February because it’s my last month of hibernation before I start preparing my yearly reset. Most people do this as their New Years Resolution, but I usually wait for spring work on my growth for the year.

As for February, it’s the month of love, Black History Month, and a leap year. So, we get one more day to bask in love and Black History. Honestly, I plan to spend most of the month dreaming about spring and it’s weather. I’m still trying to recoup from the winter weather from last month, because it was brutal. Not to mention, we probably have one more winter storm coming this month. Dreading that real bad.

The things in this month’s Lust-Have List sparked so much joy and each serve a need for me. So, keep reading to see the things I’m wanting this month.

LUST-HAVE LIST: February 2024

  • Kendrick Trunk Bag – I’ve been wanting a Blackwood bag for so long, especially a trunk bag. Safe me would usually go for a neutral, but this red cheetah print is too fab to ignore.
  • Dolce Gabbana Devotion perfume -I’m usually into clean or unisex type scents, but I’m to get into more feminine floral scents. Heard this scent from D&G would appease my usual scents and new ones.
  • Denim Pullover Shirt – I used to have a denim tunic that I would wear at least once a week. It would allow me to look be pulled together and casual. This shirt from H&M is giving me the same vibe. Easy and cute for spring. Is it too soon to be dreaming of spring?
  • FOREO UFO 2 -I was thinking about picking up a FOREO cleansing brush, but their UFO device helps to hydrate the skin and improve the look of your skin. I’m sold!
  • Nike Waffle Debut Sneaker – Another month and another pair of sneakers I’m eyeing for walking. However, I hope these will also help with my aspirations to start running in 2024. *fingers crossed*
