Currently Coveting

A few items currently on my wish list... Truth be told, after a major closet clean out last year, I very seldom shop for clothing. Instead I've been shopping my own closet and I've only added a few strategic pieces that are classic, versatile, well made and fill a need. Sure they may cost more but in culling my wardrobe I've found that's exactly what I've kept and keep reaching for. I actually don't have much black in my closet at all so it's color I do look at specifically now. My taste in clothing is generally classic with standout details and this extends to accessories as well.

What are you coveting lately?

1. Monica Vinader Skinny Double Band Ring
{Rose gold is my favorite lately and I love the sleek and elegant look of this ring.}
2. Self Portrait Lace and Crepe Midi Dress
{I'm a big fan of this label's modern and feminine dresses and this one is like a next level LBD.}
3. Burberry Brit Balmoral Trenchcoat
{I've been coveting a Burberry trench for awhile and I've had my eye on this style which is both waterproof and packable.}
4. Lo & Sons Pearl Crossbody
{I have this bag in black napa leather and it's so roomy and versatile. I think I could get alot of mileage out of this red saffiano version as well.}
5. Diane Von Furstenberg Ruffle Silk Chiffon Blouse
{The ruffles are sweet and this is the type of top that would look equally chic with jeans or a formal skirt.}
6. J. Crew Perfect Party Skirt
{The lace detail gives this otherwise classic skirt such a flirty and fun vibe.}

I do love a good trench coat, but don't own a Burberry one. My current pick is from Zara. Not that I am able to close it right now, but hopefully I will be come spring.

Morning Rowena! I agree, I did the same decision for my closet too, I'm still working on it though but I definetely prefer in this way as I feel more myself. U definitely have to take the dress and the crossbody, both look charming and would be great on u! Enjoy your weekend! xo

This is a nice strategy, Rowena! I have always shopped clothes like crazy whenever I can, as I often feel I have nothing to wear. But I hope one day this will change. I don't like black clothes, especially in winter, but I can't lie - they are the most elegant ones. Great pieces, I like the trenchcoat very much! Have a nice weekend, Rowena! xo

Definitely go for the trench coat! It's very useful for spring and autumn. I have had my Burberry for 7 years now!

Can I have it all, please?

I really like that first dress because it seems very unique...Plus, LBD always comes in handy and this one seems very unique...The trench is another clothing item that we all need and this one is simply divine.

The red bag would be the perfect pop of colour for any outfit...and that blouse and skirt are so lovely!

These are all so gorgeous!

I adore these pieces especially that #6 beautiful skirt. I like your idea to invest in the quality pieces but I just need to get rid of my bad habit of buying trendy pieces that do not last. I have done pretty good when it comes to limiting my purchases but still need some work. Great picks.

Love the trench snd the other pieces you propose

Beautiful selections, especially the DVF blouse. I have a weakness for her clothes; they're typically comfy and flattering.

Midnight Cowgirl said...

I wouldn't say "no" to a Burberry trench :)

Tash Collier said...

Oh that skirt is just lovely! I am eyeing that coat though :)

Hi Rowena, amazing wish list. I love everything you picked. The dress and the trench are my favorites. There was a time when I only bought black clothing and shoes. Then I got bored with it but lately I miss black. Have a great weekend!

Burberry trenchcoats forever! I have been eyeing one for a while too. We'll see when I bite the bullet!
Self Portrait does have some cute options! I treated myself to a few maxi dresses but this would be on my list too!

I personally love trench coats/jackets, and think they are classic pieces to have eternally in a wardrobe. Shopping your closet is what I do too, and sometimes you find pieces that you may have forgotten about or start to love again.

Happy New Year Ro!
That skirt looks like it would go perfectly from day to night.

On an unrelated note, I spotted a couple the other day. They were waiting at the bus stop (going into Manhattan). I kid you not, they looked like the human version of Ian & Rena. Had I not been driving, I would've snapped a picture.

I love Monica's Vinader jewlery! So classy and perfect for everyday.
The Burberry trench is an all time classic!
