Where You Wear…

I am always planning a trip in my head.  And when I saw these dresses from Stella McCartney Spring 2010, I thought, let’s go somewhere.

Like a treehouse in Kenya.  We’ll watch for elephants and lions and zebras and maybe a monkey.

And this dress needs a breezy beach, with whitewashed walls and soft pillows for lounging.  This is a rooftop in Mexico.  After spending the day at the beach, we’ll come here.  We’ll drink good tequila on ice with fresh-squeezed lime and eat fish tacos and guacamole.

Desires and Needs: Shoes

Lanvin Spring 2010

I dream of this beautiful Lanvin shoe.  It’s so pretty, and the textures and details make it feel so bohemian.  But I just can’t afford it.   $1,320 at Barney’s

So I thought about what I love about it.  Do I want a more bohemian heel?  Something textured and leather?  What about this Elizabeth and James shoe? $425 at Shopbop

Elizabeth and James Spring 2010

Still, I run around the city all day.  What I want (bohemian, textured, interesting, but polished) could marry what I need (a comfortable flat sandal that I can walk blocks in) in this shoe from Nine West, which is only $130:

Dilemma solved!

Diptyque Candles

ELM00189-1

These are some of the most beautiful candles in the world.  I love the clean white and black design, just slightly antique in feeling.  My favorite scents are baies (black currant and rose), figuire (fig), and Cypres (wood, musk).  But really, every scent is special, and I like to gift these to really special people.  $60 at bigelowchemists.com
