my updated lust list with what i think are quite sensible, trans-seasonal and classic items. you might happen to notice that i have been lusting after some of the items since lust list I. i guess all these items take a while to save for and accumulate. i get too distracted by the pretty seasonal offerings.
1. the ever-elusive trench
i just want a trench coat that fits loosely, drapes in a flattering way, 3/4 length, thick but breathable material and a reasonable price. is this too much to ask for? i think this minimarket one might tick all the boxes... ooo love the leather version too (eep, don't look at the price).
2. rain coat
being in london, i think this is a necessity. i'm really digging these ones by stockholm label stuttenheim. this brand specialises in wet weather garments. it's really interesting to read about the construction of their classic raincoats.
3. costume national lace ups
4. black ballet flats
i sold my repettos as they were just that tiny bit small. despite the hype about repettos, i didn't find them particularly comfortable, nor did they wear in very well. they were also really slippery to walk in. i think anniel (on sale!) or porselli might be the answer.
5. black heeled sandals
i have wanted the saint laurent janes for forever - they are so darn sexy. i'm also loving the alexandre birmans with the pretty ties.
i have recently become obsessed with obtaining a pair of circular sunglasses much like these ones by linda farrow x the row. i have also recently discovered new york brand illesteva and loving the frieda.
7. leather pencil skirt
already did a post about this, but still on the search for the perfect one.
8. black leather biker
the ulimate leather jacket would be the acne mape or saint laurent perfecto, but if i have to fork out at least $2,000 it's never going to happen. instead, i'm considering the muubaa carmona or allsaints balfern.
9. leather gloves
another must have to survive london. these j.crew ones are iphone friendly and on sale!
10. dieppa restrepo
