LUST-HAVE LIST: December 2022 | STAINED COUTURE

Happy Holidays! It’s the last month of 2022 and I’m ready to wrap it up! LOL Nothing bad or detrimental has happened this year, but I just love the fresh start of a new year.

As for this month, I’m actually feeling a little more festive this year than past years. I even put my tree up this past weekend and planning to buy some decorations this weekend. As usual, this month’s Lust-Have List is basically my Christmas wishlist and I’m going to try to get them all. Yes, even if I have to dig in my wallet, too.

Keep reading to see the items that I’m wanting this month and year for Christmas!

LUST-HAVE LIST: December 2022

  • Black & Decker Cordless Handheld Vacuum – One Consumer Reports top rated handheld vacuums. Asking for a cordless vacuum for Christmas is peak adulting, but this is a need. This is the only gift that I asked my sister and brother in-law to get me this year. So, I feel confident I will be vacuuming with this beauty in 2023.
  • REPLICA By The Fireplace perfume – I recently treated myself to the Sephora Perfume sampler set, which features samples of their top seller perfumes. It also comes with a certificate so that you can get a full size of any of the scents. This scent by REPLICA was in there, but I opted for different scent. However, this is the perfect warm vanilla perfume and I want it so bad.
  • Rice Dispenser – This is definitely a “TikTok made me want it” item. Not only is this functional, it would look great on any kitchen counter. I’m West African and Mexican, which means rice is life.
  • ORLY GELFX Builder in a Bottle Kit – I’ve been trying other gel nail builders, but the ORLY GELFX is still the best one I’ve tried. So, I hope I can get one of my Santas to get another kit for me.
  • ME Manifesters Satin Jacket – I’ve been wanting a satin bomber style jacket for awhile and this one by Melody Ehsani is just right. Lowkey obsessed with this!

LUST-HAVE LIST: November 2022 | STAINED COUTURE

It’s seriously already November! It’s apparently also Christmas time as well since so many people have decided to break out their Christmas trees and decorations. I can’t lie, I’ve been thinking about dragging mine out of storage and getting started. I might pull the boxes out this weekend, but putting it up is a couple of weeks away for me.

Despite me not being super ready to put up my decorations; I am starting to plan my shopping lists. Ideally, I would like to keep my list short and only 1-2 gifts per person. However, I know that’s a dream, but I’m trying. Ugh…I can’t believe I’m already talking about Christmas and stations are already playing Christmas music. Insane, but when in Rome.*shrug*

For the past month or so, I’ve been feeling very blah in my style. So, I’m ready to turn it up a smidge and look like I care, if that makes sense. I need to work on my personal vine and aesthetic, which you may be able to tell in this month’s Lust-Have List.

LUST-HAVE LIST: November 2022

  • Plus Size Plaid Skirt – I’ve visualizing so many outfits for fall around a plaid skirt and this one is perfect. It also has an elastic waist; great for carb filled holiday feasts.
  • Vintage Philadelphia Eagles Sweatshirt – The Philadelphia Eagles are my team and are having an amazing season. So, I need this vintge shirt to represent.
  • Classic Slouchy Socks – Slouchy socks over leggings was my favorite outfit in junior high and they are back in style. This pack of all black ones will work instead of the white ones from junior high.
  • The Ordinary Matrixyl Serum – I’m starting to notice some fine lines around my mouth. So, I’m eyeing this new serum to see if it can help me not look too close to my age.
  • Copper Color Depositing Conditioner – I love a good color depositing conditioner and this new one from Biolage comes in the perfect copper option for my hair. I have to try it!

LUST-HAVE LIST: October 2022

LUST-HAVE LIST: October 2022

LUST-HAVE LIST: October 2022 | STAINED COUTURE

Happy October! In my opinion, October starts off the holiday season. Personally, I got all of my fall vibes out my system last month and now I’m ready to take on the 2022 holiday season. Since I live alone and rarely have company, I only really decorate for Christmas and that’s only a Christmas tree. However, I’m challenging myself to get festive AF this year; even if the decor is bare minimum. It’s a starting point!

So, October is pretty much dedicated to Halloween. I haven’t dressed up for Halloween since I was in the 4th grade, which was my go-to costume of being a witch. So, I dont’ have to worrry about picking a costume, but I might do some Halloween makeup for the spooky events I usually do.

Speaking of spooky, this might be the spookiest lookign Lust-Have List I’ve done due to everything being black. lol

LUST-HAVE LIST: October 2022

  • Wide Fit Patent Leather T-Strap Mary Janes – I’ve been wanting a pair of mary janes that don’t look too young, but a little casual. This pair I spotted on ASOS are perfect! The heel is a little high, but it’s chunky and with a platform. Going to look adorable with black tights!
  • Plastic Black Cauldron – I’m into cauldrons this year. My apartment doesnt’ get trick-or-treater, but this is perfect to stash my Halloween treats. lol
  • Rice Wash Skin-Softening Cleanser – I got a sample of this cleanser as part of my Sephors birthday gift and it feels so good on my skin. So, I might splurge for the regular size.
  • Knit UGG boots – I finally had to throw away my pair of knitted UGG boots earlier this year. So, I need to get me another pair and these will be my third pair, but I love them so much.
  • Espresso Machine with Frother – I’m long overdue to get an espresso machine. This one costs under $60 and comes with a frother. Getting it!

LUST-HAVE LIST: September 2022

LUST-HAVE LIST: September 2022 | STAINED COUTURE

It’s September, which is my favorite month and not just because it’s my birthday month. Fall finally comes this month and the weather is already cooling down and I had my first PSL this morning. Yep, I’m ready for fall – bring on the pumpkin everything and leaves all over the place.

Although Fall doesn’t officially start until September 22, I think I’m one of those people that will get into Fall mode as soon as September hits. Why not? Almost every store I’ve gone into has it looking like I’m running behind and Fall has been here for weeks. lol

Despite me ready for fall, the items in this month’s Lust-Have List are only tiptoeing into the season. Slow and steady wins the race! Keep reading to see what items I’m wanting this month. Actually, I’m obsessed with every item on this list!

LUST-HAVE LIST: September 1, 2022

  • Burgundy Gel Polish – I’m already starting to break out my moody fall makeup, which includes dark red polish like this one gel polish from le mini macron. Perfect.
  • Lugsole Leather Lace-Up Boots – I finally threw away my beloved and well loved combat boots. I need a placement ASAP and this Madewell pair is at the top of my list.
  • Smiley Face Halo Charms for Apple Watch – I did NOT know that charms for apple watches was “a thing”, but there’s no turning back now that I know. These happy face charms are so adorable and perfect for my basic black band.
  • FENTY Fat Water Hydrating Milk Toner – I love a good hydrating toner and this one from FENTY is toner and essence hybrid. I must try it ASAP!
  • Celestial Sweater Vest – Are sweater vests coming back?! IDK if they are or aren’t, because I want this one I spotted on ASOS. I’m obsessed.

LUST-HAVE LIST: August 2022 | STAINED COUTURe

I know it’s just the beginning of the month, but I feel like I’ve been telling everyone that I can’t believe that it’s already August. Actually, I feel like I say this every August, because it’s just one of those months that creep up on me. Although it won’t technically be fall until next month, August feels like the warmup for fall. Stores are starting to bring out some of their fall fashions, which I’m ready for.

Currently, here in Memphis, we are still experiencing heat waves. So, I’m not feeling the need or desire to break out the layered looks and boots. That doesn’t mean that I don’t have few online carts starting to fill up with fall-friendly fashion finds. You will actually see a couple of options in this month’s Lust-Have List. Keeping reading to get all the details including why I think I need them ASAP!
