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!

LUST-HAVE LSIT: July 2022 | STAINED COUTURE

Happy July! June was insane for so many reasons and most of those reasons weren’t good. As for July, I’m ready! I finally put in to take week off, which I mostly plan to do nothing. LOL However, I will be making another quick trip to Dallas for a couple of days. I’m hoping to actually spend time being a tourist this time, because the first/last time I went was June of 2020. Needless to ay, I was not interested in being around a lot of people during that time. Plus, Texas had just issued mask mandates the day I got there.

Still, I’m excited for the trip and the week of doing nothing and not stressing about what’s going on at work. In my previous position, my anxiety would not let me enjoy my days off fearing that my responsibilities weren’t being handled correctly. Now that those are no longer my responsibilities, I can actually enjoy my off days now. I have some overdue appointments and tasks that I hope to complete that week.

Keep reading to see the list of items that I’m wanting this month. 🙂

LUST-HAVE LIST: July 2022

  • Framed Dinner Print – Finally about to work on my dining space and decide that I want to have a wall full of images related t eating and dining. I got the idea from this print I spotted on Society6.
  • Rare Beauty Liquid Blush in Grateful – I’ve heard nothing but great things about the Rare Beauty liquid blush. So, I’m dying to try it and this pink color looks to give a natural flushed look.
  • Strappy Clear Low Heel Sandals – It’s hard to find a strappy clear sandal that doesn’t give stripper vibes, but this pair from JustFab is perfect. Plus, I know my ankles and knees will appreciate it.
  • Plus Size Super Flared Jeans – I’ve been wanting a pair of super flared jeans, because they will work better with my straight hips. This pair from ASOS appears to be just what I want – simple and classic.
  • Affordable 6 Drawer Dresser – Recently came to the conclusion that I need a dresser. The wire shelving units in my closet aren’t as functional as I need. Love the clean design of this dress from Walmart and the price is nice, too.

LUST-HAVE LIST: June 2022 | STAINED COUTURE

Hey, June! The great thing about June is start it officially is the last month of the first half of the year. Also, it officially welcomes Summer on June 22nd. June is a low-key great month filled with holidays (i.e. Father’s Day and Juneteenth) and lazy summer days. I’m ready for Summer and trying to enjoy my life as much as possible.

If you take a glace at this month’s Lust-Have List, you will see a number of items that scream that I’m ready to be outside – at my place or not. That reminds me, I need to stop by leasing office to get my pool pass. Trust me, I’m planning to be poolside as much as possible this summer. Please check out this month’s Lust-Have List and the items I’m wanting this month and summer.

LUST-HAVE LIST: June 2022

  • 3-Piece Patio Set – I still haven’t bought a patio set for my balcony, but this one is perfect and in my price range. I’m confident that I’m going to purchase it on my next payday.
  • Colorblock Tie-front Bathing Suit – I’ve been excited about this Tabitha Brown collection with Target ever since they announced it. Although I want practically everything, this colorblock bathing suit is at the top. Once my skin gets tanned, it’s going to look amazing! 🙂
  • Hyaluronic Hydrating Body Cream – Obviously, if I’m trying to get my body tanned this summer, it also needs to be hydrated. So, I want to treat it to this Peter Roth Thomas body cream. I’ve loved PRT products in the past and feel this will not be an exception.
  • Brown Espadrille Sandals – Sometimes it can be hard for me to find the perfect brown sandal in the perfect style. This espadrille I spotted over on DSW fits all the things I’ve been looking for in a brown sandal for summer. The price is nice, too!
  • Woven Clare V Satchel – Speaking of perfect brown accessories – this woven satchel from Clare V is perfection! Although I’m not a fan of the open bag look, I can’t help but to love this for me.

LUST-HAVE LIST: May 2022

LUST-HAVE LIST: May 2022 | STAINED COUTURE

It feels so wild that it’s already May, but January feels like 10 months ago. Anyhow, I’m actually looking forward to this month, because I’m starting to actually make plans for the summer. I’ve already started to plan a couple of road trips and finally ready to start finding some furniture for my balcony. I want to lay out there and tan in peace. Actually, I need to look for a new swimsuit that actually fits my body.

Recently, I learned that I’ve been suffering from body dysmorphia for the past few years. This caused me to buy and wear clothes that are too big for me since I’ve lost some weight over the years. Not to mention, I know longer care what people think about how I look. If I feel good and comfortable, I don’t care what others think. Hopefully, everyone will reach this level of peace and big IDGAF energy. I love it here!

As for my wants this month, it’s screaming that summer is coming and I’m trying to be ready. So, here is my wishlist for May 2022 and I feel like I’m actually going to buy all these items this month.

LUST-HAVE LIST: May 2022

  • Yitty Midi Shaping Bra – When Lizzo announced that she was going to drop a shapewear I knew there were going to be some items that I wanted. This midi shaping bra is at the top of the list. It not only helps smooth that diabolical back fat, but it comes in an array of colors. That will allow you to wear it as a tank or under a button up. That yellow one, tho?! *chef’s kiss*
  • Animal Old Skool Leopard Print Vans – I was looking for some lace-up leopard print Vans, but I saw these first and that orange detail made me feel like these were the better choice.
  • Le Mini Macaron Party Babe Gel Polish – Recently picked up a bright cherry version of this polish over the weekend and I love it. This neon yellow one needs to be mine ASAP. I love neon yellow polish!
  • Distressed Denim Mom Shorts – Like I said, I don’t care what anyone thinks about me this summer and that includes my big legs. They need sun these shorts will help that happen.
  • Oversized All Black Sunglasses – My oversized black sunglasses broke a couple of months ago. I miss then, which means I need to replace them.

LUST-HAVE LIST: April 2022

LUST-HAVE LIST: April 2022

LUST-HAVE LIST: April 2022 | STAINED COUTURE

Sorry for the delay, but April started off a little hectic for me. For one, I started my new position at my job, which I’m super excited about. However, the first task of my position was to find and hire a new employee to take over some of my last responsibilities. Well, I found someone and they started on April 1st and I’ve been training them – so far so good.

Speaking of training, I’m ready to start going on my morning walks again. Last summer, I started going on morning (and some evening) walks to help with my mental health. I started with 15-20 minute walks around my neighborhood, but eventually started doing 30-45 minutes walks along a walking path in a near by park. All those inclines had my butt and legs starting to look right. I haven’t been walking since September and I think my body misses it. So, I’ve been trying to do daily stretches so that I can ease back into them. I’m excited and will hopefully start my walks in the next few days.

Another reason I think it’s time to go back walking is because the weather has been so nice. There have been some rain here and there, but those perfectly warm sunny days make you forget about those. So, the things I’m wanting this month are very spring and summer vibes. So, check out my wants in this month’s Lust-Have List.

LUST-HAVE LIST: April 2022

  • Truly Black Jelly Blemish Treatment – I’ve been experiencing some breakouts on my body and want to give this Truly body serum a chance.
  • Skinny Coach Wallet – I love the convenience of my key chain wallet, but I’m looking for something a little larger. Loving the thin, chic look of this wallet from Coach. Functional, but not bulky.
  • Lace Up Sandals – Personally, I think every woman needs a strappy flat lace up sandal and these from Marc Fisher are perfect.
  • Boxy Straw Tote – Spring means it’s time to break out the straw bags. The box shape of this bag is everything to me right now. I want it!
  • Winky Lux pH Lip Balm – Still shocked I haven’t tried anything from winky lux, but this pH lip balm may have to be my first try.
