Normally for Want It Wednesday, we pick a specific item (which may or may not be a handbag – we like to switch things up around here sometimes) over which we’re lusting that week. But today, we’re doing things a little bit differently. While paging through Tommy Ton‘s always-excellent street style photos from’s Paris Haute Couture Week coverage, we came upon this photo of a group of young fashion luminaries that had us rummaging through our closets to see if we could recreate some of the colorful looks.

I work from home at a desk that’s right next to my closet, and because sometimes New York apartments have some, um, “quirks,” my closet doesn’t have a door. As soon as I saw this picture, my head ratcheted to the side, as if I were some sort of cartoon character, to swiftly survey the contents and see what kinds of things I would need to add in order to achieve this level of sunny wardrobe perfection.

Clearly I need to up my skirt game, but not just with the yellow midi that you see here. No, I need the purple maxi too. And also, the red and purple flowered Giambattista Valli dress on the woman to the far left. And both pairs of Charlotte Olympia gold platformed heels on the girls at the center. And a breezy yellow summer dress. And a trip to Paris. I’m going to stop there, lest I pass out from sheer envy.
