Designer Wishlist I

24 June 2016


I have never been into designer bags or shoes, but being the master procrastinator I am, I avoided working on my assignments by binge-watching handbag collection videos on YouTube. Unfortunately, I'm the kind of person who goes through phases. Black ankle boots, nutrition, interior decoration, tea, and Tumblr were just some of my phases. Funnily enough, even beauty started off as a phase for me, but seeing as I'm still very much into it, I can thankfully call it a tried and tested hobby, and not just a throwaway interest. Designer pieces, it seems, have become my latest phase.

I'm also someone who likes making wishlists, though half the time, I won't even intend on buying any of the items on them. For instance, I have a "wishlist" of fourteen MAC eyeshadows, of which I own precisely: zero. At the moment, I have about six things on my regular beauty wishlist, and sometimes I'll make a mental note of the clothing pieces that are missing from my wardrobe and I'll turn that into a wishlist, too. So it only made sense to create a wishlist for the designer pieces I've spent hours, HOURS browsing...amirite?

Charlotte Olympia Kitty Embroidered Velvet Slippers
Cat person or not, you can't deny how cute these flats are, never mind the fact that they're called "velvet slippers". Who wouldn't want a pair of velvet slippers!? You'll typically find me in black boots, canvas shoes, or sneaks, but if I were to ever splurge on some shoes, I would probably go for something simple yet unique like these ones. I love the idea of a pair of shoes that are chic and smart-looking, yet quirky at the same time. These would look so nice with a pair of tailored trousers or some distressed denim. Drool.

Gucci Soho Disco Bag
I think the Gucci Soho Disco is having a bit of a moment recently, and I can totally see why. It's the perfect camera bag-style crossbody and I've heard it can fit a surprising amount. When I first laid eyes on this bag, I must admit, I wasn't sure about the interlocking Gs as I'm not usually a fan of logos on bags, but seeing as the design of the bag is so simple, I think it adds a bit of interest. My favourite thing about the bag is the tassel. I can't explain my love for tassels, but I probably wouldn't have looked twice at this bag had it not featured one. Also, this beige rose colour. Swoon.

Patricia Chang Small Mouse Bag
Here, we move from cat to mouse. It's not quite luxury or high end, but I think this is possibly the cutest bag I've ever come across. I just have such a soft spot for things that are quirky but still subtle. Patricia Chang is a very recent contemporary designer but is already quite known for her food and animal-related handbag designs. If you've seen a pretzel, burger, or doughnut bag floating around on Instagram, you can bet it's one of her designs. 

Patricia Chang Hamster Card Case
Another Patricia Chang item: a card holder despite the fact that I've never used or felt I've needed one before. The ears, though. The ears...

Saint Laurent Monogram Chain Wallet
The Saint Laurent Chain Wallet is by far the prettiest bag on this wishlist. I'm a big fan of chevron prints and I love the combination of the gold hardware against the pale pink leather. Not usually into chain straps but it suits this bag so well! I rarely go on nights out or to fancy events, but if I did, I'd totally want to invest in this beauty.

Louis Vuitton Petit Noé
This style of bag might not be the most iconic from the brand but it's been around for yonks. If I were to ever buy this bag, I'd probably do so on eBay because there are some great bargains to be had on vintage versions that are still in great condition I think I like it in black epi leather the best, but I'm kind of partial to the tan or fuchsia colour. Such a casual throw on bag that I could see myself using heaps.

Gucci Suede Mid-Heel Pump
My latest obsession are these pumps from Gucci. I saw them on Instagram and immediately wanted to know more everything about them. These shoes probably aren't to everyone's liking, but I think they'd look fab with cuffed jeans or maybe a long-sleeved swing or smock dress. They're a bit granny-ish but I do have an inclination for loafer-type shoes. Seeing how great these looked on Shot From The Street totally cemented how I feel about these shoes.

I know you can find great handbags and shoes at a lower price-point (all my bags and shoes are from this price bracket) but there is something so enthralling about an item with impeccable craftsmanship, history, and design behind it. I won't be buying all these items at once, and may not buy any at all (there are much, much more important things in life), but I've really enjoyed learning about designer goods and have definitely discovered an appreciation for them.
