Lottery Lust

A little while back, a friend told us that they were surprised we weren’t a little more ambitious in our Lust category on our blog. We made a conscious decision at the time to feature items in our Friday Infatuations (we haven’t posted one of these in a long while – sorry!) that we had a realistic possibility of owning without need of robbing a bank or winning the aforementioned lottery. You would have noticed in some instances, we made our infatuations our reality. That being said, we would be lying if we didn’t admit to dreaming of filling our wardrobes with pricier pieces. However, on our last day in New York, we made a pact not to purchase ANYTHING when we came back for at least a month so that our bank accounts could recover from some of the damage inflicted while we were away. B has stuck true to her word and with her Thailand holiday around the corner, there was absolutely no way she could splurge! The temptation of EOFY sales however got the better of A, sneakily purchasing two Ellery pieces and currently fighting an inner battle; to buy or not to buy the Wangs (below). Disregarding A’s lack of willpower, we’ve each compiled a wish list of our current lusts. A’s list is extravagant and luxurious with investment purchases in mind, while B’s list sticks closer to affordable, statement yet wearable pieces. With B’s strict budget and a beach holiday in mind, these pieces would do magic to give her wardrobe a facelift. We are firm believers in good quality pieces that stand the test of time however, with no new splurges in sight, we are a little over it. Don’t get us wrong – we love the thrill of coming up with completely different looks using the same pieces but come on, something’s gotta give, we want new things! And if our lottery numbers come up…

A’s List

Alexander Wang boots, 3.1 Phillip Lim bag, Proenza Schouler loafers, Rick Owens jacket, Givenchy heels

B’s List

Elke Eve ring, The Fifth jumpsuit, Elke Eve clutch, Hungry Wolf The Label skirt, Finders Keepers jumper and jean

Love A&Bx
