Wishlist Wednesday: Acting Your Age is Boring!

Wednesday, January 20, 2010

How are you, friends? I'm feeling a little overworked this week, and already looking forward to the weekend. Definitely overextending myself these days, which makes me yearn for a fun night out on the town or a shopping splurge. Being a responsible grownup is boring sometimes...

For this week's Wishlist Wednesday, I thought I would feature pieces from designers who are participating in a charity designer sale that I am helping to organize on Friday January 29th at the Tribeca Grand Hotel. If you are in New York and would like to hang, shop and drink with us, check out this invite for further details. And do let me know if you want to come! I'd love to meet if we haven't already met :)**


Bliss Lau chain available on the designer's website


Doo.Ri jersey dress on sale at Forward Forward


Mary Meyer "Biggie" dress available on the designer's website


Risto "Galaxy" print parka on sale at Assembly New York


Uluru cashmere sweater with elbow patches on the designer's website

What's on your wishlist today?

**Disclaimer: These pictures are pieces available for purchase online right now but are not necessarily representative of items that will be available at the January 29th sale.

I so hear ya on the weekend not coming soon enough! Your event sounds like so much fun; totally wishing I could fly to NYC for some amazing events I've heard going on lately! That Doo.Ri dress is gorgeous too!

I so agree, 2010 is proving more strenuous than 2009 already!! That Doori dress looks so pretty, I really like the ruffle detail and that cool putty color.

Tall boots. Sadly, I left mine in the states. Still looking for the right pair (at the right price) in London.

Susu Paris Chic said...

Thank you so much for your comment on my fashion blog!

I'd love to wear the second beauty... silver and ruffles.

My wish list is something very glam... sequins, gold and silky... all over. I made a resolution to be even more chic glamorous this new year. I love living up to challenges!

AudreyAllure said...

such great stuff! i love the bliss lau chain one :)

Denise @ Swelle said...

That Doo.Ri dress is yummy. I feel it's not fair that I can't be there! Here we are all so connected to each other while in our own countries yet the physicality continues to be an issue. Still working on that teleporter in my spare time...

Elise said...

that jersey dress definately !

Kb said...

I might save the pennies and try and come, what are prices going to be like?

Nina said...

These designers are so inspirational!

Cindy Whitehead said...

Great looks - once again I wish I was in NYC - you always have cool ,events planned. (-: Loving the Bliss Lau chain - I have one and I really should wear it more - but this one in your pics is amazing! Do I need another... hmmm (-:

ANA said...

LOVE the cashmere sweater with elbow patches!! But I just broke my shopping ban because of a 70% off sale at Modcloth, so I'm going to be good and not click on that link.

I definitely agree that acting my age can be boring.

nice dresses. I have a friend who refuses to go on rides at fairs because he thinks it's only for kids. I always tell him to chill and just enjoy it!

IdStyle said...

Loving all the designs featured, but putting the chain at the top of my wish list as well.

Alice said...

I love Doo.Ri! She acts miracles with jersey!

Gabbi said...

Beautiful wear dear D!♥ I'm very much in love with the Uluru cashmere sweater and with the charity idea behind your Friday sale. I wish I could be there. Shopping with very little guilt is the best!

Sending wishes for a stress-free rest of the week your way...♥

Mergirl said...

Age is soooooo boring! Today I'm wearing my red velvet doc martens. Love them. They make me feel like a kid! What's the point in fashion if we can't have fun with it!

Sheena said...

@dancing in chiffon: I love them all! I wish I had unlimited shopping funds...
@Pop Champagne: LOL to your friend who refuses to be in touch with his inner child! I love that stuff. Of course it's creepy when you're the only adult on the ride... but you only live once, right?

hannah elizabeth said...

i'm such a sucker for anything galaxy print... and the perfect body chain is still pretty high on my wishlist!

Savvy Gal said...

I adore the 2nd dress. I like to have fun too. Just b/c we are older doesn't mean we have to be boring.

Taylor Sterling said...

great designers!! Love the chain!! Girl get some rest and have a great weekend!!

modediktat said...

The Risto "Galaxy" print reminds me of a past Cavalli collection which is 9-10 years old. Still have the jeans (which was coming with a Patchouli scent) - and which still fits me in its size S (unbelievable) Maybe a good excuse to name my first son Roberto, hehe....
Wishlist??? Uhm, let me think. Oh yes, the NINA RICCI lace open toe low boots and some Vera Wang necklaces!!

Dream Sequins said...

@Elaine: Aw thanks :)
@hannah elizabeth: Me toooo. There have been a lot of them recently, no?
@Savvy Gal: Just b/c we are older doesn't mean we have to be boring. <--- so true!
@Taylor Sterling: Trying to get some rest this weekend! Maybe a girls' weekend :)
@modediktat: Those Cavalli jeans sound AMAZING. You always have the best things!!

Susan said...

awww, some really great stuff!
have a sweet day, darling.
