As you might have noticed, we have our mothers on our minds this week, and in advance of Mother’s Day, we’ve decided to dedicate this week’s Want It Wednesday to the things we’d buy for our moms if our budgets were open-ended.

Metallics can be a little bit tricky; in their worst incarnations, the finish can look cheap and tacky, but when a metallic is good, it’s something you can wear no matter the season or time of day. Because we’re in one of those oh-so-delicate seasonal transition periods where a good metallic is worth its weight in literal gold, we’ve used this edition of Want It Wednesday to round up our favorites.
Over the weekend, the PurseBlog team was scattered around the country – I was in Atlanta, Megs and Vlad were in Ft. Lauderdale, Bea was at Coachella and both Katherine and Shannon were holding down the fort in NYC. Somehow, even in our disparate locations, we all got to enjoy some gloriously sunny, warm weather that only served to remind us that we should probably stock up on some sunglasses for the coming season.
I grew up in the Deep South, in a deeply southern family, so there were a few rules for dressing that were always clear. Among the strictest of standards was the idea that you don’t wear white before Easter, and although that rule (along with its post-Labor Day twin) have long been scuttled, it’s still a strong association in my mind.
We’ve once again reached midweek, and that means it’s time for another round of Want It Wednesday. This week, the members of the PurseBlog team have carefully cataloged our most-wanted accessories, but here’s the catch: we excluded handbags. There are so many other little details that go into a look that we don’t get to talk about all that often around here, so from caps to kaftans, we’re doing it today.
Spring’s official beginning is just a couple days away, and although New York likely won’t feel all that spring-like until sometime in April, we’re feeling a little bit eager to season-push at the PurseBlog offices. For this week’s Want It Wednesday, we’ve rounded up the team’s favorite pieces for starting the new season.
At the PurseBlog offices, we are women of diverse interests, but many (most, really) of them have a shopping component. Most fashion people have at least a passing interest in beauty, and that’s definitely true of us. On this Want It Wednesday, we’re here to share the lotions, potions and face spackle that’s been tempting us lately.
