Want It Wednesday 04.04.2012

Another Wednesday means another day for the PurseBlog team to huddle together and discuss the items we want. Let’s be honest, we do this everyday, but we only share it with you on Wednesdays. From funky cat eye sunglasses to a brightly colored handbag to a sparkly bracelet, we all found super cool items that we want to add to our wardrobe this week. Best part is all three work perfectly together. I call dibs… on all of it.

Megs | Eddie Borgo Gunmetal-plated Crystal Cone Bracelet | $1,055 via Net-A-Porter
I’ve been on this major arm party kick, stacking all of my favorite bracelets high each day. I like to go edgy when it comes to my accessories, so spiked bracelets always call my name. I started to get a major itch for Eddie Borgo accessories and now feel drawn completely to the Eddie Borgo Gunmetal-plated Crystal Cone Bracelet. I wish it were actual pave diamonds, however, the aesthetic is so me and I am looking to amp up my bracelet game this spring.


Amanda | Prism Portofino Cat Eye Sunglasses | $425 via Net-A-Porter
With the advent of spring comes lots of beautiful, sunshine-y weather, and the shift between seasons is always a great reminder to step up your sunglasses game. I’ve had my eye out for the perfect cat-eye sunglasses for quite some time, and I think that the Prism Portofino Cat Eye Sunglasses might be just what I’ve been searching for. Instead of going ultra-retro (and sometimes a bit hard to wear) with an entirely white look, these chic sunnies have a light frame dappled with a bit of indeterminate animal print. The finish of the plastic is also interesting – instead of going high gloss, the ivory and black pattern is rendered in matte acetate, which gives the entire look a nudge toward the ultra-modern. A vintage shape in a futuristic material? I’m always such a sucker for that combination.


Hilary | Proenza Schouler Red PS1 | $1,995 via Proenza Schouler
When I say I want this bag, it’s actually becoming more of a ‘need’ – I truly, truly LOVE it. Red is the color I’m lusting for this week, but it changes often. Last week was blue, the week before last I wanted orchid (a bright fuchsia). There is a reason the Proenza Schouler PS1 is so coveted among the fashion set. It’s the perfect blend of utility and luxury. Obviously, working at PurseBlog has made me totally bag-centric and after getting my first purse-wish granted by the Balenciaga fairy, it was only a matter of time before a new object of desire took its place. PS1, you will be mine. It’s just a matter of time…

    <3 the bracelet! If I only wore jewelry enough to justify the price tag :/ I always take my bracelets & watches off at work in a effort to preserve them and forget to put them back on.

       I know, I wish the price were lower!

        Megs, can’t you find us a knockoff somewhere? I know, probably not…that piece is just too original! I love it!

        How is it original? The current spiked trend is just a resurgence of 70s/80s fashion.

        If you google the designer he has some similar bracelets for less some are all metal or stone for about half the price.

    Hilary, you will never, ever regret that PS1 purchase. It’s become my all time favorite bag. Go for it!

    As usual I now want all of these too. XD. I think my favourite are the sunglasses this week.
