Wishlists have got to be one of my most popular and requested posts/ videos. Truth be told, I LOVE creating wishlists and would do them even if I didn’t have a blog or channel so I don’t mind one bit although my preference is always for a blog posts vs. videos. For some reason my video ones always seem a bit rushed whereas my blog posts generally are ‘created’ (definitely too fancy a term haha) over a longer period of time, which I think makes the wishlist more accurate/ less prone to randomness! Anywho, this is what I’m lusting over at the moment and what I hope to add to my collection in 2017.
1. Saint Laurent Kate Tassel Bag // 2. Gucci Marmont Nude // 3. Gucci Belt // 4. Chanel Ballet Flats
// 5. Louis Vuitton Kimono Wallet // 6. Chanel Wallet // 7. Burberry Heart Scarf // 8. Louis Vuitton Capucines
The list isn’t a massive one because I have at least one other big financial priority for 2017 that I’ll be saving for but this being me, it also isn’t the smallest list either!
I have 3 bags on this list, only one of which I have mentioned before. The Capucines has come on and off my wishlist more times than I can count which is probably a sign in itself that I shouldn’t go for it. I really like the look and I like it more everytime I see it in real life. What I can’t stomach is the cost which I realised with horror, is more than I have spent on any bag – ever (I bought my Chanel jumbos before all the price increases)! I don’t like the Capucines more than I do more my Chanel Jumbo (my most expensive bag), but I also realise I’m not living in 2011 and that prices go up. I will continue to um and ah and bore you all with my debate on this one!
The other two bags are both mini bags which I had sworn off in the latter part of 2016. After having acquired more tote/ generally functional bags to last a lifetime though, I’ve eased up a little and am allowing myself to explore the fun world of minis again! I love a tassel and while I’m not a fan of all of Saint Laurent’s designs, I find the Kate bag absolutely adorable. And, after initially resisting and dismissing the Gucci Marmont, it has won me over big time. I LOVE my black one and would love something else from the line in their gorgeous nude colour. I’ve been visiting the line in store a lot and am still dithering about the styles – camera bag or another flap? Mini or small or medium? Decisions, decisions!
As for other accessories, I’d love a Gucci belt and have been eyeing this gorgeous Burberry heart print scarf in either red or black. This is also the year that I hope to acquire some Chanel ballet flats – I tried some on at Heathrow in November but I couldn’t get on board with the particular shade of nude – not at all flattering for my skin tone. Hopefully I’ll come across a colour combination that I like.
Finally, I’d like a new everyday wallet. Ideally the size would sit between my LV ZCP and Insolite wallet which made me think that a Chanel French wallet could be the answer. However, I couldn’t find any that fit the bill when I visited a boutique so I’m wondering if they’ve discontinued this size? The wallet pictured above isn’t quite what I’m after (although I would go for caviar after my nightmare with the larger lambskin wallet I owned) as it’s too large but I couldn’t for the life of me find a photo of the size I wanted – sadly I suspect this might be because they don’t make it anymore but I will continue to search 🙂
Another option is to go for the Louis Vuitton Kimono wallet. I hesitate because it’s so similar to my Insolite but I LOVE the look of it which keeps on drawing me back.
And that’s it for my wishlist for 2017! No doubt it will change next week but this is what I’m window shopping and contemplating at the moment 🙂 What’s on your wishlist for the coming year?
