Blue Velvet: not your average summer list


not your average summer list

summer 2012 wishlist

Thought of trying to create a list containing all the pieces I'd like to have for summer. I'm not the one to faithfully follow every seasonal trend, so I mostly sticked with basics in this list. I didn't plan for it to consist of mainly black pieces, but I'm not a big fan of colours anyway.

Missoni crochet shorts- the only colourful piece in the list. These shorts are so perfect and summery, I imagine them at the beach with a simple black bikini, as well as on a night out with super high heels.
Isabel Marant Zora wedges- I prefer the black version to the red one. The chucky platform is a dream!
Theyskens' Theory crochet knit- basic. Works with everything, and it's good for layering in winter as well.
3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli tote bag- I never imagined that I'd like a bag like this one, but I've fallen hard for it. I could have it in nude as well.
Ray-Ban aviator sunglasses- it's high time that I got these aviators. I especially love the gold-toned metal frame. Such a classic piece.
Etoile Isabel Marant Calice crochet dress- I also didn't plan having so many crochet items! I don't know what's going on with me and crochet, it all started when I tried to find a good white crochet dress on ebay and didn't come up with anything. Then today I just bumped into this IM one while checking out netaporter, and realised this is the one I want. If I'm lucky enough I might find an equally good one on Ebay.
Balenciaga Arena envelope clutch- uhm yeah. If there's not at least one Balenciaga piece in EVERY list that I make, then something is seriously wrong with me.
Pierre Balmain Zebra cutoffs- very Balmain, but a bit more affordable. This pair of shorts is so fun and random! I wonder when Topshop is gonna make a good knockoff.
Converse Chuck Taylor high tops- need one good pair of Converse high tops. My blue low-tops ones have kind of come apart after all these years.
Maje Laos embellished tweed jacket- not the average summer piece, more like a winter one. It's just that it's so parisian chic and I can't resist..

Plus, almost all pieces from the 3.1 Phillip Lim Spring/Summer 2012 collection. I've fallen head over heels for the dreamy lilacs, the silk trousers and the wide culottes!
