Although Christmas is already over, I still have this incredible urge to go shopping. Sometimes I just need to get some fun new clothes, a gorgeous new handbag, or some awesome new music or books. It’s a sickness, really.
Anyway, for this week’s Friday Lounge post I’ve decided to share a few of the pricier things I’m currently lusting after. (And who knows? I’ve been told that some of my gifts are coming a little later, so there’s still time!)
Michael Kors Large Specchio Harper Tote

I am in love with this handbag. Everything about it is perfect, from the color to the unique chain detail. I’ve been in the market for a grey purse for quite a while, and this is exactly what I was looking for. I’ve been holding out because I wasn’t sure I really wanted to drop $328 on a new handbag right now (especially after paying for a wedding and Christmas gifts!). But maybe I can convince myself that it’s worth it.

I’d actually like these boots in black since I most often wear black (or grey), but this was the main image on the website. They do have several gorgeous colors available, but at $398, I don’t think I could really justify buying more than one pair. I’ve been looking for a pair of leather riding boots for a while now, and Frye also makes “wide calf” options (which I may or may not need due to my muscular calves).
The Galeazza Shift from Anthropologie

This is such a beautiful dress and it really fits my style (even down to the headband the model is wearing!). The only problem is that it’s $275 and I don’t really have an opportunity to wear dresses that often … So I really can’t justify spending that much. But oh man, it’s gorgeous!
Gucci 54mm Sunglasses from Nordstrom

I love sunglasses. I constantly rely on them while driving, but I also think they’re a fun accessory. These Gucci sunglasses are awesome with the two tone color scheme, and I think the shape would be incredibly flattering. Unfortunately, $280 is a little steep for sunglasses … Though I’ve always told myself I would completely splurge on a great pair of designer eyewear. One day.
Tiffany Cobblestone Diamond Band Ring

I know I won’t be getting any jewelry from Eric any time soon, which is totally fine. I’m more than happy with my engagement ring and wedding band! I am allowed, however, to drool over other pieces. This band is funky yet classy, with alternating sizes and cuts of diamonds. It’s definitely the most expensive item listed here so far at $4600 (for my size, anyway!), but it’s what I picture when I think of getting a right hand ring. Maybe for our 10 year wedding anniversary? (Hint hint, Eric!)
Asscher Diamond Stud Earrings from Blue Nile

The final item I’m currently lusting after is a gorgeous pair of diamond earrings. As you may have guessed based on my choice of an emerald cut diamond for my engagement ring, I adore step cuts. Although I’d prefer to eventually build my own pair of diamond studs on Blue Nile (the option is there, though I wasn’t able to locate a setting other than the one featured here when I was poking around), I’d want something very similar to this. Asscher cut with great specs, white gold, and nothing larger than 1 carat (total weight). Absolutely stunning … And absolutely expensive with an expected starting price around $2375!
So there you have it … My current personal (expensive!) wish list. If you were to add some higher end items to your current wish list, what would they be?
