Must have accessories

I watched the first few episodes of the first season of felicity this week. I cannot believe that show started 10 years ago. That means that I started college 10 years ago. yikes.

When I'm forty I want to look like those ladies on lipstick jungle, i.e. hot. I've started wearing sunscreen on my face at ALL times. I've been doing Laser Hair Removal for a year now. Here is a list of accessories I would love to own by the time I'm forty just to top it all off.

1. Cashmere Burberry Scarf 250.00 - Sooooooo soft. This is the only thing on the list I have already. For plaid, it matches remarkably well with most things.


2. Black pumps 255.00. The Kate Spade Karolina heel hasn't been around for that long but everyone raves about how comfortable it is. I tried cole haan nike airs and I didn't find them to be all that comfortable, perhaps because I have a high arch.


3. Hermes Scarf 325.00 Below is the book that tells you the many ways you can wear the scarf. (on head, as a belt, as a shirt, etc). I learned about this from my law school friend L who has one of the scarves.




4. Chanel Sunglasses (black) 380.00-580.00 - I will never actually buy these because it's just not right to spend that much money on something that I would definitely definitely lose! Although I would certainly accept them as a present. I have target sunglasses somewhere that are big and round in that Jackie O kind of way but of course they are no where to be found.


5. Chanel Mary Jane ballet flats 635.00 - "You KNOW how picky I am about my shoes, and they only go on my feet." Most classic accessories are worth the money because they are durable. But when it comes to shoes I am more reluctant to shell out money because it is inevitable that shoes will be stepped on, rained on, scuffed, etc.


6. Burberry Trench 695.00 - For that price I am perfectly satisfied with my Banana one. But I must say, that if I had a gazillion dollars, I would buy it.


7. Chanel classic flap bag 2450.00. My roomate, A, turned me on to this. At first I wanted a different one, but this one is so classic that I'm sold.


8. Hermes Kelly bag 10,000.00 or more - I want this for my 40th birthday. Isn't it exquisite?

I will be updating this post because I know I left something out.

One more thing I want to talk about. I'm not into Ralph Lauren. It's nothing personal. I love Dylan's Candly shop. When people show up to the Academy Awards in Ralph Lauren I usually think the dresses are simple, elegant, and basically to die for. But as a general rule, I just don't like Polo. Everyone seems surprised when I say I don't like it. But I don't and here's why. It's just too cowboy.
