I can’t believe another week is more than halfway done. I’m not sure if I’ve been particularly busy this week or the last bits of summer are just slipping away more quickly than I’d like them to, but it seems like this week’s Want It Wednesday has come around at light speed. Below, find out what the PurseBlog team is craving today.
Finding the perfect camel bootie for fall is a daunting task. I usually have to mentally prepare myself for days of searching until I find my perfect match, but these Tory Burch Mae High Heel Booties were a simple act of serendipity. The leather is buttery soft, yet still durable and a beautiful shade of almond. The height is tall enough to give me the vertical boost I need, and the heel is chunky enough to be comfortable and practical. My favorite thing about the boots is that Tory really manages to do what she does best, creating a classic piece with a modern feel. Let’s just say I don’t think I’ll make it through fall without these. You can purchase these beauties for $450 via Bloomingdales.
As soon as I was old enough (and more importantly, allowed) to wear makeup, I’ve always enjoyed picking out new products. I could spend hours walking through beauty departments, looking at all the different colors, textures, applicators, etc. Since I have a bit of beauty product ADD, I tend to gravitate towards packaged products. I love being able to walk away with several products I like, all inevitably to be used. Today, I’m in the mood to expand my collection and the Smashbox All For Eyes Prime, Line & Define Set is on my radar.
I have a few other Smashbox products and I definitely stand by them. That’s why I would love to add a new brow pencil, lid primer, eyeshadow trio and waterproof liner to the mix. Plus, all these goodies come in a cute metallic envelope clutch that could easily fit in almost any handbag of mine. Not a bad deal at all! $49 via Nordstrom.
Despite my tenure in the fashion industry, I wouldn’t consider myself a high-maintenance girl. I’ve got my makeup routine down to about 10 minutes, I only wash my hair a couple times a week (it’s better for your hair, I promise) and I practically have a uniform staked out for myself. It doesn’t take me long to get out of my apartment in the morning, and my conversion back to a lady of leisure (ha) when the day is done is similarly speedy – all I need is a pair of cotton shorts and an old T-shirt and I’m a happy girl. I never thought I’d find myself lusting after a $455 set of Olivia Von Halle Alba Tatjana Silk-Satin Pajamas, but here I am, doing just that. These PJs look completely indulgent and luxurious, and I love the purple and black color scheme, accented with just enough green. I’d lounge in these jammies any day of the week. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $455.
