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 | 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.

LUST-HAVE LIST: August 2021

Happy August! I know I’m late to the party, but I needed to take a mental break from a lot things. This not only included social media, people, and places, but also the blog. Actually, I was planning on waiting until September (my b-day month) to make a grand re-entrance. However, I just felt like “why not now?” and that’s why I’m here. Plus, there are so many things I want to share with y’all, including the things I’ve been eyeing.

So, keep reading to see this month’s Lust-Have List. Better late than never. However, I must admit that it’s upsetting me and my inner homegirl that the last post I did was the Lust-Have List for July. I don’t like the way it looks, but I digress.

LUST-HAVE LIST: August 2021

  • Mid-Century Green Peel and Stick Wallpaper – I’m ready to start making my dining area look like a dining space. Although I’m still looking for the perfect table and chairs. This graphic wallpaper will  make the small nook look defined and maybe bigger. Plus, it’s renter-friendly wallpaper, which is almost as functional and fabulous as dresses with pockets.
  • Geo Print Peplum Top – I’m ready for fall, especially the fashion. This peplum top from the ELOQII for Walmart collection is the perfect transitional piece from Summer to Fall. Love this print so much?
  • Ouidad Intense Curl Cream – During this little hiatus, I started going on daily walks – almost daily. It only took me 5 minutes into the first walk in the summer heat that walking in summer heat is only for my naturally curly hair. Since I’ve been solely wearing my hair curly for the past couple of months, I’ve been looking for a good hair cream for curly hair. This one from Ouidad seems like a winner. My curls have loved the other Ouidad products in the past.
  • Faux Leather Wide Leg Pants – I haven’t owned a pair of leather pants since I was in junior or high school. Love these faux wide leg pair from Nordstrom and they’re size inclusive. However, I think I will size down in these to avoid to the too oversized look.
  • Light Green Fax Snakeskin Purse – Look at this purse! Not too big and can work dressed up or down. A vibe.

LUST-HAVE LIST: July 2021

LUST-HAVE LIST: July 2021 | STAINED COUTURE

Happy July and also the beginning of the second half of 2021! July has started off pretty good for me. Spent my extended holiday finally being able to see some of my friends/favorite people ever after a whole year. Plus, I ate all the grilled food and kicked it with loved ones as they blew up fireworks for hours. Needless to say, but I definitely had a great and lazy extended weekend. Unfortunately, that caused me to delay putting out this month’s Lust-Have List, but better late than never.

While I mentally try to figure what I’m going eat since I’ve given up meat for the next month, read to see what items I’m wanting this month.

LUST-HAVE LIST: July 2021

  • Pink Bandana Socks – I don’t usually like wearing socks, but when I do I like for them to have a fun pattern. Love the pink bandana print of these socks, which also come in blue and green.
  • The Lip Bar Brickhouse Liquid Matte Lipstick – Recently cam to realization that matte lips work better on me than glosses and lipstick textures. One of my favorite matte lipsticks is The Lip Bar Bawse Lady. So, I feel like I will equally love their Brickhouse shade, which is slightly browner than BL. Therefore, I need it.
  • Off the Shoulder Jumpsuit – I’ve been wanting a easy and versatile jumpsuit that I can dress up or down. Spotted this gem over at ASOS and it checked off all the boxes. Plus, it’s available in normal and plus sizes.
  • Faux Snakeskin Chunky Sole Slide Sandal – Feel like my closet is disappointed in me that I don’t have these sandals in my closet already. I feel like they would go with almost everything.
  • Peacock Table Lamp with Jungalow – When the Target and Jungalow collaboration was announced, I was ecstatic. However, when they showed that this lamp would be part of the collection, I was in love. I told myself that if this lamp is still available at the end of the month, I would buy it as an early B-Day gift to myself. So, we shall see.

LUST-HAVE LIST: June 2021

LUST-HAVE LIST: June 2021

LUST-HAVE LIST: June 2021 | STAINED COUTURE

Hey, June! June is one of those lowkey significant months, because it’s when we enter the last half of the year. I guess can call it the beginning of the end! LOL Either way, I’m actually looking forward to this month, because I’m cashing in some much needed vacation days this month. In a couple of weeks, I will take a staycation to my apartment, but I will venture out. I have a few plans with some friends and fam, but nothing too hectic. Well, there is that mini road trip my sister and I might take, but who knows.

What I do know, is that I need some new things in my life. My apartment is finally coming together, which I’m so grateful for. It’s wild how a couple of pieces of new furniture and some art can make a space feel like home. So, now that I feel my space is starting to take form, I need or redirect my energy to my style.

I can’t believe it, but I’m finally over my 2020 sweatpants everyday era. It was fun, cozy, and gave what it needed BUT I’m trying to be outside this summer and they don’t fit into the looks in my head. They might make a special appearance here and there, but I’m wanting easy dresses, some flowy pants, and casual chic tops. I did buy a dress this weekend, which is more work-friendly. Still, a dress was bought.

So, this month’s Lust-Have List is more fashion and style heavy with a peek into my ideal summer 2021 vibes.

LUST-HAVE LIST: June 2021

  • Rouched Strap Wedges – Love the look of these rouched teva-esque sandals! Digging the platform and all the color option. I want them all, but the yellow are at the top of my list.
  • Orly Gel polish in Tangerine Dream – I live in neon nail polish in the summer. So, I was all about Orly’s new electric neon polish collection. Of course, I wanted them all, but I don’t have any polish like this neon tangerine orange color. This will pop on tanned skin – trust me.
  • Brown Faux Woven Tote – I have a brown leather tote in this same shade of brown and it’s well loved. However, this one from Aldo is more functional, not too big, and comes with a strap.
  • Cateye Tortoise Sunglasses – I need some cateye style sunnies that aren’t black. These may work and I’m going to Target after work to try these on. Wish me and my fat face luck.
  • Pastel Camo Tee Shirt – I have the traditional green camo version of this tee from Old Navy and feel obligated to get this pastel version. Cute. P.S. I see that Old Navy is (finally) stepping up their plus size fashion styles. A lot of cute top options that aren’t graphic tees. Thank God! #Amen
