After a stretch of feeling weighed down by material possessions, guilty for spending any money at all, and totally turned off by the idea of nesting/putting down roots/approaching any sense of investment, I went on a serious luxury goods envy streak this weekend. Such is the natural ebb and flow, I guess.
To celebrate(?), here are a few things I have my eye on now that I'm back to having my eye on things.
Let's start this off with true fantasy wardrobe! This isn't gonna be on my back anytime soon, and if I were in the position to buy an Acne leather jacket, I'd probably go for solid black because I guess even when I'm dreamin' I have to think practically. But I want you to know that I fully believe in this particular incarnation. Add denim to everything!
Supreme x Vans x New Order
Though I am certainly not an anti-wedding person (there are flowers! and booze! isn't love really great?), I am definitely not a person who grew up dreaming of what my wedding would look like if getting married ever seemed like a good idea to me. On several occasions, I have actually tried to force myself to imagine if there were any sort of wedding I would like to have while listening to other people plan theirs, but I always came up with absolutely nothing. Not even a single detail of a wedding dress I might be into wearing or whether I wanted to have it like on Mars or on a boat or whatever.
That is until whether or not I'd ever do a "theme" wedding came up in conversation. As a joke, I said that I would base my hypothetical-totally-not-happening-in-the-foreseeable-future wedding on New Order's Power, Corruption, and Lies. But, of course, immediately after I heard the words escape my mouth, I decided that that is actually exactly what my dream wedding would be.
Now, when I say that I would base my wedding on Power, Corruption and Lies, I'm talking mostly about the cover (but dancing to "Blue Monday" is also a requirement.) The cool thing about the artwork for this album (besides being an iconic representation of one of my favorite things in life, moody florals) is that it also started as a joke that ended up seeming like a really good idea! And it was an excellent idea! And now it's inspired some sneakers! And I really want those sneakers!
Polly Wales Constellation Ring
This is a fancy ring. I can't have it. Since I've been talking about fantasy shopping and dream weddings, I guess I could tie everything together and say that it would make a cool engagement/wedding ring, but I'm totally weirded out by the idea of expensive rings for that purpose. So like, let's just look at this ring and not talk about it, alright?
My current wallet has seen much better days since I bought it whenever Poketo did stuff with Target, and now the Mike Perry print is just a weary ghost of its former cheerful self. I've been meaning to invest in a Big Girl Wallet for ages, and I think this is my favorite I've come across. I'm trying to keep the things I wear/carry on my person that don't look like stormy skies to a minimum right now, and this is especially lovely.
I've been wanting a baseball cap for a while, because fashion exists primarily to make you spend money on things that you never in a million years that you would even like or want! It's definitely inspired in part by my unwavering devotion to all things Kristen Stewart (except, you know, her film career which I have yet to check out. But I'm sure it's great!)
So yeah, I was already admiring Kstew's collection of hats she swiped from Robert Pattinson and then my friend Dana took a break from making me laugh really hard to get a nice new haircut that looks good with her rad Kenzo cap and I was like "how do I become Dana?" and so I checked out Opening Ceremony's hat offerings. These are just a couple of my favorites, but they've got plenty I'd love to have perched on my head this summer.
