Wednesday afternoon means that we’ve made it more than halfway through a work week that can seem interminable when summer fun is waiting on the weekends, so we all deserve a little reward, right? It also means that today is Want It Wednesday, so below you’ll find all the items that the PurseBlog team is considering rewarding itself with this week.
For weeks I’ve been hearing rave reviews about this “little miracle” face oil. Normally I’d be hesitant to try oil on my face, but it appears that some people swear by this stuff. The Ila Face Oil for Glowing Radiance regenerates the skins cells, leaving your skin soft and glowy. The oil can be used as a makeup primer, which is always useful in the summertime when makeup tends to not last very long long. Not to mention that it’s rose-scented (yum!) and it helps fight wrinkles and improves the texture of your skin. If you’re as curious to try this cult favorite as I am, you can purchase it for $110 via Net-a-Porter.
As y’all might have noticed, I’m a writer, and writers tend to be a group of people who are very precious about the tools of their trade. Despite the fact that I write online for a living, I still have a pen cup full of the only two types of pens I find acceptable sitting next to my computer and a reporter’s notebook at the ready, lest I should actually need to jot something down in real life. At home, I jot quite a lot of things down, and from here on out, I’d like to be doing it in the beautifully textiled Weston Heaven Calcite Notebook. It doesn’t get much prettier than this swirling red-to-purple print. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $68.
I know, I know. Typically, we each pick one item we really want and share it with you all. However, I can’t help myself. I *really* want two things this week. And since they are both Alexander McQueen, I figured you all might go easy on me and over look my excessive wanting.
In recent years, I’ve realized how much a belt can take any outfit to the next level. That being the case, I do find myself making a conscious effort to add more belts to my looks. This Alexander McQueen Wide Leather Waist Belt is a perfect example of why. Gorgeous black leather with quilted detailing and gold hardware come together seamlessly. Pair this with a skirt or to cinch a dress to complete your look. Plus, this design is bound to make a statement for seasons to come. Via Matches Fashion for $597.
While my personal style is a bit more bohemian-chic than super edgy, I find myself looking for a little edge from time to time. That’s why, when I came across this Alexander McQueen Skeleton Key Fob, I instantly wanted it. Sure, it’s a gold-tone skeleton key chain, but I find it kind of cute. And not only would it look great next to my keys, but it is also undoubtedly a conversation starter! Via Matches Fashion for $149.
