exactly 16 days from today, i'm officially kicking off the last year of my 30s. damn. i just got all kinds of depressed just thinking about that.
so to cheer myself up, i'm compiling a fun list of birthday wishes. ain't no "world peace" on it, either. and a warning: the material girl in me is rearing her ugly head for this post. oh, yeah.
edit: so yeah, i might've bought them already. heh.
but i love the wedges even more.
fantastico lens for my camera that i learned about during phototasting 1.0 (i still need to blog about the second class, oy). i still don't think i'll magically turn out photos as awesome as the monkey's, but it sure would help.
marc by marc jacobs' "perfect leola" hobo bag. it's a little pricey, but hey, i did say this was a WISH list.
stella & dot was released recently, and there are a handful of really cool pieces that i love. in the new catalog, this necklace is styled with a casual button-down plaid shirt and jeans, and i love the look a lot. the window of my local j. crew had similar outfits in their display last month too, and i dig it.
this necklace, i still like it. i used to be very anti-gold jewelry, but since becoming a stella & dot stylist, i've changed my tune a bit. this is super cute with a black tee and jeans. there might just be a matching bracelet, too. heh.
okay, i admit it. i really kinda want this to be my hand.
well, not literally, since that's a boy hand. i don't want boy hands, even though my nails are a mess and desperately in need of a manicure but i don't really have time nor do i want to spend money on getting my nails done considering i work with my hands all the time and they'd be ruined in no time flat.
wow. sorry. what i was really going for here was that i'm now coveting the iPhone 4. amazingly, it's been two whole years since i got my iPhone 3G, and while i loved it, i don't love the new software that i "upgraded" to a couple of months ago. it turned my fabulous phone into the biggest, laggiest, pain in the ass piece of shit that ever was, and i often want to throw the damn thing out the window. and despite the numerous reports of consumer complaints about the new iPhone, i know quite a few people who have it and luuuuuurve it. i trust them more than random people who want 5 seconds of fame on the news, so, yeah. it's definitely on the list.
i really, really want to take a few more "proper" sewing lessons. there are classes at few cool sewing studios that i would love to take - at sew l.a. (one of my friend amber's regular haunts), common thread studio, which i visited a few months ago and liked a lot, and the sewing studio (both of which are a bit closer to home). and me learning to sew is a win for more than just me, so see, not completely selfish, right (don't answer that)?
i also wouldn't necessarily turn down some new threads - there are some really cute things at j. crew, or nordstrom, or banana republic, even urban outfitters. i'm likely far too old to rock stuff from that last shop, but i kind of don't really care. so there.
then there's an awesome pair of boots that i really like, from a postcard i got from nordstrom rack. unfortunately for me, the postcard doesn't tell me what brand they are or even an idea of how much they'll set me back for. look:
they're totally cute. i kind of like those olive pants, too.
and to go with the boots, i'd dig one of those military-style jackets that are totally on trend for the fall. i kind of want to be on trend, dang it. of course, now that i'm looking for one to use as a visual aid, i can't find one. and i'm not talking about the kind in the postcard up there, either. ew.
i give up. i wanna be a billionaire...so freakin' bad (that was for the teen).
