This wish list post is a little different in the fact that we aren't just focusing on one item and some of the items are actually pretty affordable. Dannijo has always been on my radar, although I have to admit only within the last couple of years have I started really paying attention to the company. I got the chance to listen to the two Dannijo sisters, Danielle and Jodie Snyder, speak at an event in NYC last year and absolutely fell in love with the brand. Not only is it owned by a couple of badass women, the company is also really focused on philanthropic efforts. Prices range anywhere from roughly $100 to $1000 and every piece is just as unique and beautiful as the last. Dannijo is evidence that jewelry can be art.
As a single lady I'm going to start off this post by saying it's as much for us as it is for those with an S.O. to appreciate a lingerie set like this one. I'm a firm believer that the right bra and panty set can seriously enhance your everyday life. I promise you the secret behind a lot of women's confidence isn't what she's wearing on the outside but what she's wearing underneath. Behind every powerful woman is a solid lingerie set. I figured since Valentine's Day just passed, now was as good a time as any to add a little lingerie to the Wishlist. So if you're a woman with money to drop and looking for a little unconventional confidence boost, I found just what you need.
If there is anything my mother taught me growing up it was to appreciate a good handbag and I really f-ing appreciate this one. When I started looking at Fendi handbags for this post my initial intention was to do a write-up of one of their way cool and way trendy monster bags I had my eyes one while shopping a couple of days ago. However, I then came across this gorgeous lady and basically my whole world changed (that's not dramatic right?). While plenty of bags are versatile, you don't always come across ones that are also really fucking badass. I like to envision this bag as the ultimate accessory for a woman ready to take on the world. The croc detail in unison with the calf hair make this bag look like the definition of luxury. And because $3450 isn't enough to spend on the bag alone, I thought I'd throw in one of the must-have bag accessories of the season, the Fendi Fur keychain ringing in at $1000. Yes, that is right - a $1000 fur keychain that I absolutely have to have.
It's actually by total chance the second item to the Wish List (AKA the list of things i'd buy if I had a spare $9895 to drop on a coat like this), is another Chloé piece. I really can't control the fact that the label produces nothing but magic time after time. I was skimming the coats at Barneys trying to find this AH-MAZING fringe Alxander Wang Danielle Bernstein posted on her snapchat when I came across this Chloé. All my mind could process what the fact that this coat was f*cking fantastic. So naturally I enlarged the photo and proceeded to spend the next few minutes investigating the beautiful detail it had to offer. Like hello?! Do you see that tapestry work?! The coat is composed of100% dyed sheep shearling, 60% virgin wool, 25% acrylic, and 15% polyester. All sheep shearling imported form Mongolia, of course. The coat would make dressing for winter immensely more exciting. Pair this with a simple black top, black jeans, and a stellar pair of shoes, and you have yourself a majorly cool outfit. So if you have an extra $10,000 lying around, look no further for your winter splurge.
I’ve been obsessing over the Chloé “Faye” bag forever now and I’m only falling more and more in love. This bag is definitely in the running for bag of fall/winter and if you’re asking me it’s the winner. I saw the beauty on Danielle Bernstein’s Instagram and all I could think was “YES YES YES.” It comes in dozens of colors and multiple shapes. Each one just a beautiful as the last. The “wine purple” is hands down my favorite shape and the epitome of the perfect fall bag. The black tone mixed with the smooth leather and calf skin makes for quite a pretty bag. It’s so simple and so unique at the same time and a bag that definitely deserve’s it’s place on all our wish lists. At around $2,000 the bag may not be favored by our bank accounts, but if you’re looking for a fall time splurge I’d highly suggest giving this work of art a heavy consideration.
