Did you realize that after this edition of Want It Wednesday, we only have three more left until we hit 2014? Not to scare you or anything, of course, but I thought it was worth a mention, in case you had some stuff on your to-do list that you wanted to knock off before the calendar flips again. Time to get cracking on learning to cook, reading more books or getting your spending under control!
Want It Wednesday
With Black Friday deals looming in just two short days, you’d think that we could put our nascent acquisitiveness on hold for 48 hours while we wait to see where things fall (namely, where prices fall) after the biggest sale day of the year comes to pass. You’d be wrong! Our desire to shop knows literally no bounds, so today’s Want It Wednesday is full of things that we’d like to own, even at full price.
Did you know that Thanksgiving is next week? I genuinely did not have any idea that was the case until yesterday, when one of my PurseBlog teammates hauled me into the present and reminded me that the end of the year is hurtling at us at a fever pitch. That sounds kind of intimidating, right? I think it does, so let’s slow it down, even if it’s only for a few minutes, with our customary Want It Wednesday festivities.
Friday the 13th is unlucky, but what about Wednesday the 13th? Are there any elaborate social beliefs around things that happen on this particular day? If not, we’d like to make some up, since we’re pretty sure that’s how the whole Friday the 13th thing got started anyway. A big sister was trying to terrorize her little brother and she had already tried convincing him that he was adopted, to no avail, probably.
Originally, when I wrote the title of this post (which is the first thing that I do with every post), the word “October” creeped in. Having to delete it and replace it with “November” is a pretty jarring reminder that time marches forward despite our inept human complaints. As you guys well know, around here we like to deal with the inevitability of human existence in the only way we know how: with a rousing Want It Wednesday full of things we’d all like to own.
Some weeks, the PurseBlog team’s sartorial obsessions are in sync with some sort of theme – a particular color palette, a category of clothing, a material or texture. This week, they’re all over the place, ranging from tough motorcycle jackets to pretty jacquard dresses that just scream to be taken to an upcoming holiday party. Below, check out what our team members are lusting after this week.
Personally, I think that right now is a very exciting time of year to want things. Not only are the stores filled with lots of new things, but fall and winter require so much stuff. Sweaters and shirts for layering, cold-weather accessories, shoes for different types of weather and precipitation, all-leather everything, coats and jackets – the options are just endless, on top of all the handbags and accessories that we generally want.
Because of our National Handbag Day celebrations last week, it’s been two full weeks since we’ve had a good ol’ Want It Wednesday around here. Today, we aim to fix that with everything from skirts that would look great with tights and booties to cheeky, literary-print scarves. Check out everything that the PurseBlog team is craving this week after the jump.
It’s that time of the week again, and for this Want It Wednesday, the PurseBlog team is craving the little odds-n-ends that make fall so magical. From a rich, red wool jacket to a glittering watch and everything in between, we’ve picked eight great things that we’re dying to add to our respective wardrobes this week. (This time, we’ve labeled who wants what so you can shun us accordingly.)
When it comes time for Want It Wednesday, we never discuss a theme – the participating members of the PurseBlog team simply pick some stuff they’d like to own at the moment and send it to me, I add in my own picks, and then I cast the spell and light the cauldron and it becomes a blog post. Usually the stuff doesn’t go together at all, and that’s fine, but today, there are some, uh, similarities.
