w is for wishing for luxury

I was doing my daily browse through the online stores and came upon Net-a-porter.com, the online fashion luxury destination. I usually scroll through the hundreds of beautiful designer items with wide eyes and somehow forget my less-than-full bank account. It gave me an idea for W; showcase my wish list of luxury clothing, bags, shoes, and accessories! From Phillip Lim to Diane von Furstenberg, these are my picks of lust that I will probably never own - but a girl can dream, can't she?

3.1 Phillip Lim silk-chiffon dress, $595
3.1 Phillip Lim laser-cut silk dress, $695
Marc by Marc Jacobs hillier hobo bag, $400
Marc by Marc Jacobs franny animal-print tote, $330

Diane von Furstenberg opal leather wedge sandals, $295
Christian Louboutin luly 140 leather sandals, $995
Roberto Cavalli serpent brass bracelet, $615
Bijoux Heart 24-karat gold Swarovski crystal ring, $335

I loved the structured, but draped and layered, look of Phillip Lim's dresses and the way Marc Jacobs can make a simple hobo look breathtaking, and an out-there print completely glamorous. I've fallen back in love with wedges, and these DVF leather sandals are the perfect amount of chunky and strappy. Of course, you can never go wrong with Louboutin's, especially in a nude/pale peach colour that is very on trend at the moment. Finally, the jewelry - this serpent Cavalli bracelet would be so great against a soft, understated outfit, and I think the Bijoux Heart ring speaks for itself - pearls and Swarovski crystals? Yes, please!
