Monday Must-Have Lust List

1)  SOPHIA WEBSTER FOR J.CREW COLLECTION

Anybody that even kind of knows me knows that I have a teeny tiny (ok, HUGE!) obsession with shoes.  Like, it’s unhealthy.  So when I got wind of the Sophia Webster for J.Crew collection, I nearly had a shoe induced heart attack!  The only problem with the unveiling at NYFW is that I have to wait until Spring 2014 to get my hands on them!  The torture!!

2) THE HOME. T

I love when fashion and charity collide.  It’s impossible to have buyer’s remorse when you know your purchase is doing some good!  The Home T-shirt is a great way to do good AND be fashionable… basically the best combo ever, right?  For every purchase, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to multiple sclerosis research.  Now show your state some love!

3) OVERALLS!!

You read that right!  On this week’s Lust List is Overalls!  Remember those pants with a bib look you probably rocked in the 90s?  They’re baaaaaack!  So turn up some Nirvana and slip into some overalls, right now!  Make them a little more modern by trying them in leather (or faux!) or a dark wash denim.  I like these and these.

4) KATE SPADE SPRING 2014 COLLECTION

I have spot reserved in my heart just for Kate Spade.  The colorful girlyness is basically me spot on.  I feel like they are reaching into my brain and making clothes specifically for me and my style.  This season was no exception!  Inspired by traveling through Europe, this collection is fun, flirty, and totally wearable!  Is it Spring 2014, yet?

This is one of my favorite looks from the collection…

5) THE WORLD ACCORDING TO KARL BOOK RELEASE

The World According to KarlThe illusive and always sunglass clad Chanel designer, Karl Lagerfeld, is now sharing some words of wisdom with us underlings in his new book The World According to Karl.  His notorious wit (in both the good and shocking spectrum) are synonymous with the man’s impeccable style.  I’m looking forward to this collection of word gems.  Here’s a small sampling of Karl Quotes: “Think pink. But don’t wear it.” “I like everything to be washable.  Including myself.” “I only know how to play one role: me.”  Releases September 17, 2013.

Happy Reading!

Man Repeller Book

1) THE RELEASE OF MAN REPELLER: SEEKING LOVE, FINDING OVERALLS

As a regular reader of Leandra Medine’s blog, I’m really looking forward to her debut book!  She has a sharp engaging writing style that’s sure to make you laugh, cringe, and totally relate all at the same time.  It’s like Chelsea Handler meets Fashion Police meets Rachel Zoe.  If you’re a hopeless fashion addict with an unabashed love for a little sarcasm, I believe you will not be disappointed.

Releases September 10, 2013.  Pick up your copy here!

2) 3.1 PHILLIP LIM FOR TARGET LAUNCH

OMG!  All this talk about 3.1 Phillip Lim’s collaboration for Target has got my mind on fire!  The designer’s obvious skill can now be enjoyed for a fraction of the brand’s regular prices.  Have you seen all those beautiful handbags?!  Swoon!  How about the fun graphic tops?!  So on trend!  The evening dresses?!  Perfection!  You can count on me being front and center at this Sunday’s release!

Lauches September 15, 2013.  Check out the preview here!

3) NEW YORK FASHION WEEK STREET STYLE

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know New York Fashion Week is underway. One of my favorite things about the fashion weeks all around the world is checking out the amazing street style.  It’s fun to see how real women wear the trends.  The photos are infinitely inspiring, often outlandish, devilishly daring, and always stylish! Don’t worry… it won’t be long until you see my photo among these!  😉

Some of my favorite websites for street style photos are The Sartorialist, Style.com, W Magazine, and Jak & Jil.

4) TOPSHOP ‘AWESOME’ POLKA DOT SWEATSHIRT

I probably need to move somewhere that sweaters, pants, and jackets are a more regular occurrence because I tend to be supremely drawn to them.  When I saw this sweater, it was immediately added to my shopping cart and my mind began creating outfits with this, well, awesome sweater!  Officially obsessed.  Available Here!

5) CHANEL LES BEIGES HEALTHY GLOW SHEER COLOUR SPF15

The luxury brand is at it again creating more irresistibly tempting beauty products.  This sheer glow powder sounds like it will be perfect for those of us living in more humid climates.  At least for me, when humidity strikes, there’s no point in wearing any foundation because it’ll just melt off anyway!  A nice powder like this with just a hint of color might be just the ticket!  I’m looking forward to picking up this product soon!

Try it for yourself!
