You’ve done it! You’ve made it through the majority of the week! (Hey, it’s Wednesday afternoon, that totally counts.) (At least on the East Coast.) By now, you’ve probably spotted something on this here Internet that’s making your credit card cower in fear, and we know that we certainly have. That’s why we reserve Want It Wednesday for exactly this time of week – the beautiful things from Gianvito Rossi, Mara Hoffman and Erickson Beamon that we’re craving give us the courage to press through and continue to do things that earn our paychecks. Below, the PurseBlog team details exactly what we’re trying to stop ourselves from buying right now.
They caught my eye the second I laid eyes on them. The bright blue and neon yellow piping make the Gianvito Rossi Suede Bolero Sandals a great, bold shoe for the summer, and the perfect compliment to a pair of tan legs and white shorts. They’re elegant, they’re sturdy and the height of the heel allows you to stay in them all day long. The this sandal also easily transitions from day into night, which is always a HUGE plus in my book. My favorite part of the whole shoe is the little tassel on the shoelace; it’s the perfect whimsical touch that screams “summer.” They’re 50% off at the moment, which I’m taking as a sign that now is the time to buy them. Buy them for $446 via Matches Fashion.
It’s safe to say summer is upon us, and with every summer season comes more trips to the pool, beach, lake, etc. I tend to stock up on a plethora of swimsuits every year, but one summer item I have vowed to spend more time looking for is a quality beach cover-up. Up until this point, cover-ups have been an afterthought. But not this year. That’s why this Mara Hoffman Rainbow Stretch-Jersey Kaftan might be my next purchase. The pattern and length are perfect. You can literally throw this on, add a cute pair of wedge sandals, perhaps a hat and take yourself from the beach to the bar or restaurant all while looking sun-kissed and fabulous. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $275.
I don’t wear earrings very often. I own a lot of earrings, and I love them dearly, especially the big ones, but I can’t tell you the last time that I actually donned them for a trip out of the house. You see, I wear a pair of very bold glasses every day, plus I have some very bold hair (think black and purple), and the addition of earrings just seems like…a lot of look, all circa my face. To wear this gorgeous pair of Erickson Beamon Swarovski Crystal Drop Earrings, though, I’d gladly pop in a pair of contacts and maybe even consider pulling back my hair. The combination of baby blue and burgundy is non-intuitive and masterfully executed, and the bold size of the earrings is begging to be paired with a bare-shouldered dress. Buy through Saks for $385.
