currently craving…

26 March 2009

A rather random, petit collage of things I need/want maintenant.


Louis Vuitton x Stephen Sprouse Speedy 30. Completely unexpected from me, yes, and before you pre-judge and point fingers and say “It’s LV! And obnoxious!”, I must say, it is the hip-hop graphics and obnoxious colors (in a small dose that doesn’t blind the eyes, which is rather considerate) juxtaposed with the classic monogram design that draws me into it. I love a bit of limited edition. It would spruce up a rather boring outfit of tees, boots/heels, jeans, scarf, non?

Make Her Think Talon Knuckle Ring in rose gold. Definitely tougher and a bit more rock-and-roll than I am accustomed, but any large ring has this sort of of power over me, one that makes it so desirable I cannot turn my eyes away from it. It has this ability to add edginess to a dainty outfit, making it all the more covetable.

Topshop Lattice Cage Sandals, in black. Inspired by YSL’s Spring 09 collection, no doubt. I never thought I’d be one to fall for the lattice, cage form, but when condensed into an ankle bootie, lattice has never been more covetable. Status? Head over heels.

Alexander Wang Jersey Skirt. I’ve been in love with it for quite some time now, even dedicating an entire post to it a while back. Perhaps it’s because I have an unabashed adoration for anything knit or body conscious. The seam detail and the exposed, bisecting zipper make the classic mini feel even sexier and edgier. So, so close to buying it. But only size 10s were left – grab it while you can darlings, it’s on sale!

MAC Lipstick in Pretty Please. A gorgeous pale pink pearl lustre lipstick. Slightly nude, with a girlish, Lolita pink. A touch of mauve and dusty rose. Breathtakingly beautiful and feminine.

MAC Nail Lacquer in Seasonal Peach. From the Sugarsweet collection, the most perfect pale peach, slightly pink, for a spring or summer nail look. A must have.

    Mmmm, yes please to anything Alexander Wang.
    I’m not a huge fan of the Stephen Sprouse for LV collection, but this bag is my exception (I’m not too fond of the graffiti print bags).
    And seriously, those Topshop shoes – finally a more affordable option to the YSL ones I’ve been drooling over.
    Excellent picks, darling La C! 🙂

    love the lipstick! 😉

    Nice picks! I’ve seen the Topshop heels on other blogs and they are highly covetable indeed. The pearly pink lipstick is beautiful but probably a bit too pale for me.

    I love the skirt and yes, the Sprouse graphics do have a sort of hip-hop feel to it. I too find myself increasingly drawn to that bag. I do think it’s quite a scream and a head-turner!

    Thank you for your lovely comments about the dance. 🙂 It’s always nice to hear from fellow dancers especially. Isn’t hair swishing just the sexiest thing? I’d love to see you dance someday! Especially since I’m hopeless with hip-hop, I love watching other people do it because I’m just so full of admiration for em!

    You go, girl! 😉

    Blogtwin love,

      Candy-forest: Darling, no need to be apologetic!! =] Not everyone – by that I mean a majority (I think it’s safe to assume!) likes LV bags. And I totally understand too. I used to not like them, but there are a select two or three bags I would love to own!

    I love the bag, but I am drooling over the Alexander Wang skirt :]

    i never liked lv bags, but this post convinced me that they have potential to be fabulous.

    everything you pick, as usual, is perfection.

    Reason 1,534,678,902 why I love Topshop: I have been coveting those YSL booties for the last three months. An affordable variation is a Godsend. Thanks for the comment my dear!


  28. 27 March 2009 5:52 pm

    Oh, the skirt and the shoes! Like the lipstick too 🙂

  29. 27 March 2009 6:25 pm

    I am in desperate need of that nail polish. Peach is quickly becoming one of my new favorite colors.

    Hi, sweetie? Fashionable minds think alike?
    i giggled when i saw this post today….cuz I just purchased my LV Berkeley last 20th and I also couldn’t resist the bangle that LV has in their SS’09… i chose the largest size in praline for they ran out of stocks in black and in white. Ugh! Antwerp is my new playground! The LV is in my Multiply already. 😛

    Take care!

  51. 1 April 2009 1:13 pm
