Friday's Fancies: Birthday Lustlist

Happy Friday friends. Today, being the official start of February also marks the start of my birthday month. With that being said, I thought I'd change up my usual friday's fancies this week and showcase a few items I haven't been able to get out of my head lately (you know that feeling). In preparation for my birthday month, I've been spending a considerable amount of time perusing all the delightful goodies the internet has offered up. So husband, if you're reading this, anything from the list would be just dandy, anything really!

I have been madly in love with Celine's Trio bags for the longest time. Aren't they just perfection in their minimalist design? No studs or spikes, no metallic hardware, no chains, a barely-there logo and soft buttery leather. Just perfect. When I finally started getting serious about investing in one, out comes the soft rolled trios to mess with my head. So help me out, which do you prefer? And more importantly, what colour?

If I do end up only getting one item from this lust list, it will most likely be these Tibi shoes. Any petite statured female can attest to the magical leg lengthening ability of a little nude shoe. The fact that these have an ankle strap, and not just any ankle strap but a clear one is just sheer genius. Now you have the added comfort of a strapped pump without the visual leg chopped-in-half effect from your usual strappy shoes. I think these just might be the closest shoes ever made for achieving that floating barbie foot effect, as coined by Rumi Neely.

>>Tibi Daria pumps $430 available here

Balmain always gets it right. While I'm loving the fact that black and white is going to be huge this Spring/Summer, it's these Balmain striped pants that I just can't get out of my head. So far I've yet to come across a high street version that lives up to these Balmain ones with it's perfectly placed stripes and a touch of moto detail.

Every year I make it a point to buy myself a new birthday frock. A quick browse easily results in a dozen pretty dresses but nothing really stood out to me, that was until I came across this gorgeous Etoile Isabel Marant number. It's easy breezy shape and embroidered porcelain like print has me day dreaming of sunny brunches and mimosas.

Beautiful fresh-faced make up at Elie Saab's couture show this year. I love the dewy blush eye shadow with matching lips and va va voom lashes. Okay, okay who am I kidding, it's clear that I'm loving everything blush and black at the moment. Like the cozy street style outfit above, blush accents with a black and white palette, so pretty and perfect in it's simplicity.

OK, I'm pretty sure I just added everything onto my lust-list as well. I would definitely go for the celine rolled. It is AMAZING. And those Tibi shoes are gorgeous and are very moderately priced. I think those 2 are definitely going on my list! I hope you get everything!!! Happy Birthday month!

The trio bags are so cute! I would go for the black or is it dark navy? The rolled trio look great but perhaps not so wearable? Have a lovely weekend.

haha! it's my birthday month too! love the things you picked. i'm sure you will be getting these.

Lindsay K said...

Happy Birthday month!

I really like your picks. You can't go wrong with the Trio. I think the flat trio might be a bit more versatile and timeless. You can't go wrong with camel, black, navy, but I love burgundy for winter!

And yes to blush tones. So pretty.
