The Lust List

Bag Lust List

July 27, 2015

  As it says in How to Be Parisian Wherever You Are, ” It’s not an accessory, it’s your home.” A woman’s bag, much like every other piece of clothing, is an extension of her personality, but the difference lies in the faithful and enduring relationship that lies between a woman and her bag.

October 19, 2014

Yes, I am jumping on that bandwagon. If you have Instagram and follow any well-known fashion creative, you would have gained a glimpse into the wonder that is Alexander Wang’s fresh collection for H&M too. I drooled over Isabel Marant’s collection for H&M, and now Alexander Wang’s has me weak at the knees. Sport-infused aesthetics and voluminous, sculptural forms truly speak to my soul. Not to mention this colour palette, which is everything all colour palettes should be – minimal. Most…

Since it’s Christmas time I thought I would put together a Christmas lust list.

Most importantly I would be over the moon if I received a new laptop – my current laptop turns off about 4 times every time I try to create 1 post. No lies. So that…
