Constantly being on the interwebz for blog purposes also leads me to do some hardcore “window shopping” and I always find myself pinning things to Pinterest and Favery to take note of the items I desire most. I thought, “why not have a series of things I covet?” Thus, Wishful Wednesdays! I know, not the most clever title. This might be an every other week kind of a series. Or just when I happen to want tons of things all at once. Or something like that. Anywho, on with the stuff!
1. Kurt Halsey x Art Star Philly “Dear Friend” necklace
I have an affinity for deer and I love the art of Kurt Halsey (he just might be the next artist I feature on Curator’s Corner :)), so it’s only natural for me to pine over this necklace, right? Art Star Philly had an Instagram giveaway for two of them but I missed it! That’s what I get for being out of the loop. *wah wah wah*
2. 127 Flowers Dress from ModCloth
If you look in my closet, you’ll see that 90% of my dresses are floral print. This mint dress with pink and peach roses is perfect for spring and I’m contemplating on whether I should save up a few paychecks so I can get it for my cousin’s wedding next month. This is appropriate for a wedding… I think? It’s going to be in SoCal and I do believe the ceremony is going to be outdoors. Maybe it’s more of a tea party dress though. I guess that means I’m going to have to throw a tea party and that will justify my pending purchase of this dress. Yeah? Yeah. I knew you’d agree. 😉
3. Unicorn sweater by Skip ‘N Whistle
Skip ‘N Whistle has some of the most clever duds. My family wore coordinating tacky Christmas sweaters by them during the holiday season (seen here) and we easily won the Best Dressed Family On Christmas award. I made that award up, but we won, so don’t even try to argue with me! This lightweight sweater features a vintage looking unicorn design that looks like it should be plastered on velvet and placed in an ornate gold frame. Right?! I have a penchant for the delightfully tacky. And luckily for us, this piece of art is wearable and not on velvet (I’ll wear a velvet dress, but not a sweater. The line’s gotta be drawn somewhere)!
4. Cat Eye frames from the Derek Cardigan Grammar Collection
You can’t really tell from the picture, but these glasses have a colon on one side and a semicolon on the other. HOW EFFING PERFECT IS THAT??? When I first saw the Derek Cardigan Grammar Collection I fangirled so hard and have been drooling over these glasses for months. I have a pair of wayfarers from their regular line that have mathmatical symbols, and I loathe that subject, but those glasses were too awesome, so I set my hatred for all things math aside. Of course seeing a pair of glasses with symbols that I give a sh!t about is ridiculously exciting! For new readers, I majored in Creative Writing. Just thought I’d throw that out there in case you’re wondering why I’m so damn passionate about colons and semicolons. : ; ; : ; ; : ; ; : : ; : ; <– semicolon and colon par-tay! Honestly though, I’m a bigger fan of the double dash when I write — that’s just my preference. BTW – coastal.com is having a sale on their designer glasses and the Grammar Collection is available there! Use the code EXTRA50 to get half off of your glasses. But HURRY, you have until April 30!
5. Thranduil v-neck shirt by Cloud & Victory
I came across Cloud & Victory after they started following me on Tumblr awhile ago. They have the wittiest t-shirts with ballerinas, and characters from The Hobbit, Downton Abbey, and Game of Thrones. Since the image is so tiny, you can’t really see all the amazingness of their Thranduil shirt. My apologies. But it has Lee Pace as the racist elf king wearing a fine pair of pink stunna shades, a lavender Birkin draped in the crook of his arm, and it says “Get In Loser, We’re Going Shopping.” The Hobbit x Mean Girls. LOVE IT! Which reminds me, it’s Wednesday. That means I should wear pink, otherwise I can’t sit at the table with the cool kids. D:
Not gonna lie. My main reason for lusting over this faux ostrich Melie Bianco bag is because it’s called “Nina.” No, it’s not named after me, but for someone whose name isn’t very common and can’t be found on souvenir name keychains (what the hell, Disneyland? Y U NO have my name anymore?!), it’s a really exciting thing to see an adorable product that bears the same name as you! And it has a little bow, and as we all know bows are cool. Specifically bow ties, but whatever.
What items are you guys wishing for?

I love this. I really want to cultivate the girlie side to my wardrobe! I wish you lived in Florida instead of Orlando so we could meet up at Disney or have a tea party. The dress is adorable – I love the colour and the floral. I always have trouble with the fit of dresses however. It’s unfortunate. That necklace is darling too – so cute! Want! ❤
Er, I meant California, not Orlando.
I love unicorns too!! (so much that I wound up getting a couple of them “unicornos” tattooed on my back but they’re cute! will blog about it sometime) but the ones i am SO in love with are the unicornos from tokidoki.
i’ve only recently started wearing dresses and have always been a shorts-tshirt-sneakers or flipflops kind of gal. been looking up inspirations for outfits with dresses that aren’t too dainty – cause i don’t feel it’s my style. i’m glad i stumbled upon your blog because the quirkiness of your outfits totally complements your style!
if you can post more info about the source of style inspirations, i’d love to learn where you get your pieces ❤
I want that unicorn shirt so much. It’s so pretty and magical.
Love the glasses! Seriously, hearing they had a colon and semicolon took me from “cute glasses” to “omg I have to have them NOW”. 🙂
i like these items! the dress is too cute
Ohh so many cute things here, definitely love that dress and bag.
