LUST-HAVE LIST: January 2014


Yeah, I’m a little late with this month’s LHL due to trying to come get back to normal following the holidays and going mortal kombat style fighting off colds and/or the flu. Also, I’ve been a little busy doing some behind the scene working trying to code a new visual presentation (a.k.a new design) for Stained Couture. Remember, coding can suck your life away.

Back to business and this month’s Lust Have List. For the past couple of months, I’ve felt very motivated to becoming a better me and sometimes that means simplifying other areas in your life to improve others. Blah, blah, and some more blah. Anyway, here is the small, but needed list of things I’m lusting for this month. Cheers!

  • Charlotte Olympia ‘Libra’ Flats, $695, Nordstrom – Anyone who knows me know that I love anything that has to doing with my zodiac sign of Libra. Yeah, I’m  proud a Libra and so I was beyond stoke to see these adorable zodiac flats from Charlotte Olympia. I guess I’m starting to catch feelings for her shoes, huh? I love the soft pistachio hue with the glitzy of the Libra scales embroidery on the toes. Plus, the gold detail on the heel is a very nice touch. What I’m not to stoked about? That price! Sheesh.
  • Chiffon Dress, $34.95, H&M – I know it’s hard to see due the crapload of winter weather we’ve been experiencing, even here in Memphis, but Spring is right around the corner. So, it’s almost time to start thinking about spring wardrobes. Better yet, transitioning to spring wardrobes. A taupe chiffon dress seems like a easy way. The color and material is soft enough for the warm breeze of Spring, but can easily be cold weather friendly when paired with some tights, boots, and an oversized boyfriend sweater. Tah-dah!
  • The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, $13.72, Amazon.com – This is a classic book that was first published in 1990, but still has feet over 20 years later. Since I’m trying to be a more effective person, this seems right up my alley. FYI: My reading list has been on point lately!
  • Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask, $24, Origins – I’m a HUGE fan of charcoal masks, because I have a problem with large pores and these masks seem to do the trick. I tried this mask back in college and I remember it being amazing. Unfortunately, mostly broke college students don’t have the luxury to splurge every other month on charcoal masks. However, occasionally broke career  women, such as myself can type this on their to-buy list in their overpriced, but much-needed smartphones while waiting for their equally overpriced and delicious coffee at Starbucks. Yeah, I’m buying this after work. I feel like I miss it and want to see if the magic is still there.
  • Vintage Tan Alba Hobo bag, $160, TopShop – Big. Vintage. Tan. Perfect!

Isabel Marant x H & M


So….this is major to me, because I along with countless other fashion, have become obsessed withe style and fashion genius that is Isabel Marant and her iconic hidden wedge sneaker and chic clothes.

Well. today, H&M announced that they will be collaborating with the designer for a collection that will feature pieces inspired by her style and past collections. The collection will H&M stores and online November 14, 2013.

I am flattered by this collaboration: H&M works with the best designers and this invitation is an exciting honour. I aim at creating something real, that women want to wear in their everyday lives, with a certain carelessness, which I think is very Parisian. You dress up, but do not pay too much attention and still look sexy. The collection is infused with this kind of easiness and attitude. Everything can be mixed by following one’s own instincts and my take on fashion is all about personality,” says Isabel Marant.

“We are excited to have Isabel Marant as a guest designer at H&M. The way she mixes different elements in her collections, creating a style that is effortless and urban makes her very contemporary. She has a fantastic eye for ethnic detail and the rare ability to create something that people really want to wear. We are sure the H&M customers will be enthusiastic about this collection,” says Margareta van den Bosch, Creative Advisor at H&M.

I can’t wait! What about you?
