I got inspired by this article : Five Things I Might Deplete My Bank Account For. The author, Ida Hargitai, chose a glorious necklace, bag, shoes, parka and skirt, all made in the U.S. What outrageously priced goodies might I choose for my Fall/Winter collection?
There’s nothing in the world of fashion that I’d deplete my bank account for, of course. (I suspect Ms. Hargitai wouldn’t either). For a good lawyer if I were arrested, sure. I always tell my husband to get me Alan Shore from Boston Legal, and spare no expense. Alan was the best.
But if I had a special bank account for fashion and style, that magically cannot be used for bills or travel or charity, I might hit it hard for:
- Made to order leather boots. These beauties from Poppy Barley can be customized by color and fit, and they look gorgeous. I promise to wear them every day from November to March.
- A real Diane von Furstenberg wrap dress. I have had numerous imitators but only once in my life did I own an authentic DVF. And I sold it on eBay! Rats. This print looks fabulous for Fall/Winter (with the new boots, above ☺)
- This cashmere coat by Rick Owens. What else needs to be said?
- Venus Necklace in Rose Quartz, by Wendy Brandes. I’ve been lusting for this necklace for at least a year now. When that ship comes in, baby, you will be mine. ☺
Have a marvelous Monday, and please let me know what you might deplete your (special, fashion-only) bank account for today!
