What I Want Right Now

I need a few of these...

Yes, this sounds a little spoiled but I read a lot of blogs and everyone has been describing what they want for spring, what they’re loving that’s new and a host of other baubles and fashions that have plucked at their heart strings. This has got me thinking that I need to make up my own favorite things list. While I’m sure that given enough time, money and greed, I could come up with an endless list. Since I don't have endless time or money I won't make an endless list, instead I will be thinking about what would complete or update my current wardrobe.


Stackable bracelets, believe it or not, I don’t own a set of bangles. I have quite a few bracelets but they consist of bead style charm bracelets, diamond tennis and some beautiful gemstone bracelets. While all of these are beautiful I think I’m missing out on the arm party. I’m not apt to wear them stacked one on top of the other for fear of scratching an expensive bracelet. I think it’s time to go shop around for some simple sterling silver bangles, leather straps or stainless steel. They’re quite affordable and look great together.

Michael Kors is tempting me...
If you’ve been reading my past blogs you know that I’m looking for a navy blue handbag. This is a more summery version of my black handbag. I’m also trying to be more daring and not succumb to the fashion myth of not wearing black with navy. So far I’ve found quite a few contenders. A few are at Dooney & Bourke, of course, and there is a Dooney & Bourke at the Paragon Outlets near my home so the price is right. Kind of a win/win situation, just have to decide which one will come home with me. Although the call of Michael Kors has been strong this week. So hard to decide.


Finally I would love to have a black sheath dress and a pair of washable black slacks. While I have a pair of really great black slacks they are not washable and far too expensive to experiment on with hand washing. I would love to have these in a washable version and I know just where to get them. I need to get up off my butt and do it. I also can’t believe that I don’t own a black sheath dress, this is blasphemy. Since I’ve lost some weight my black wrap dress doesn’t fit so well, it hangs all wrong. I think it’s time to invest in a classic and who doesn’t have a little black dress in their wardrobe, apparently me. A simple list, let's see if I can complete it.
Can't believe I don't own a little black dress that fits...
