A Girl Can Dream: My Wish List

One of my favourite past times is to browse designer websites and pick out all of the things I would purchase if I was made of money. Here are some of the items that I came across on my last search:

1. Reed Handbag Drawing Scarf - COACH
This scarf is made of imported silk and measures 27 x 27. I would use it as a neck tie with a plain white t-shirt to dress it up for work, or tie it on one of my handbags to add some punch. The cost of this scarf is $68, which is not bad compared to some of the other items on my list! www.coach.com.
2. Miranda Canvas Satchel - COACH
This bag is beautiful! Not only is it big enough to hold everything I own, but it is yellow, which is very hot this summer. The bag also comes in orange, which is a fun summer hue. The trim is leather and the main is canvas. The bag retails at $598. www.coach.com.
3. Ombre Three-Strand Necklace - BANANA REPUBLIC
This necklace reminds me of being outside, and that is why I love it. I always wear chunky beaded necklaces but I love how this one combines three strands, as well as three very earthy colours. The necklace also comes in orange and purple shades and retails for $59. www.bananarepublic.com.
4. Cutout Bootie - MANOLO BLAHNIK
It is a huge dream of mine to own a pair of Manolos and one day I plan to achieve that goal, but for now, let's drool over these gorgeous shoes made of patent leather with a red lining. The bootie has a peep toe, open sides and a zip-up back. Could they be any sexier? The only part that is not amazing is the price: $785. The heel is over 4" high so they may require some practice, but who wouldn't be willing to put the work in for those? www.neimanmarcus.com.
5. Izzy Sunglasses - KATE SPADE
I think everyone needs a solid pair of aviators, and I have yet to own a pair. If I could afford to spend the $168 that these puppies are worth, they would be mine! They are worth the price though given their light weight, scratch resistant lenses and 100% UV protection. www.katespade.com
Until next time, I will keep dreaming!
