If I Were Young, Fabulous and Rich (rather than just young and fabulous)

This afternoon was rubbish, so I'm spending my evening lounging couch-side with Zephyr. Cats are the best companions for lousy days, they ask nothing of you other than full control of your lap and one of your hands for scratching (ok, so maybe they require a lot). I've been stressing a bit over Christmas lately,to make myself feel better (or worse?) I've been compiling my dream-list in my head...

An attention getting red datebook:

Moleskine 2010 Red Pocket Hardcover Daily Planner ($18.95)

So I don't spill my coffee while running to work:
I like to smell pretty at all times:
Adds even more love to everything I bake:
Flannel with flair:
Somethings gotta go under those over the knee boots:
Matches the birds in my tattoo:
Dreaming of career opportunities:
Chris and I both have puppy fever, until we can get a real Frenchie:
And my piece de resistance, oh how I covet these boots! Let's hope they go on sale after the holidays!
...In reality all I'm asking for is a coffee maker (wow, exciting I know). I'm sure I'll be adding more to my dream list in the coming weeks as I continue to cyber-window-shop!
The couch potatoes:

What items are on your "dream-list"?

My dream list, at least for this Christmas, would have to consist of:

- a new bag
- a camera (a dslr would be amazing.. not like that would ever happen)
- a bevy of beautiful hats
- basically, a shopping trip where I actually had some spending money

Lexie said...

what a great wishlist! i am obsesssed with perfume, and i can TOTALLY see you as a parisienne kinda girl!

i asked for a pair of glittery gold TOMS and make-up brush set from target, lol.

Leproust Vintage said...

Those boots are amazingly beautiful! I was actually expecting them to be much more expensive!

As for my wishlist, I really want a particular la mer watch, some new vintage dresses, and a puppy!

d said...

Love your cat! I also want a french bulldog desperately. But I would more than settle for those freaking boots.

Alyson said...

I asked for Blue Suede Toms! And some stuff that is favorited on my Etsy favorites list.

On my wish list is a REMOTE FOR MY CAMERA! Duh! Of course that would make life easier!

I clipped out this picture of a black frenchie from some odd magazine and I carry it around and ask my boyfriend all the time if he wants to see my puppy... It is just so precious! (My lord that made me sound super odd..Oh well!)

Thanks for the advice! LOVE the BOOTS.

I really like your blog, but this is my first time to comment. I can't from my own laptop for whatever reason.... I love the cat! What a cutie! I posted my wishlist on my blog a couple of weeks ago, but the main thing on my dream list right now (and on the list then) is a permanent job!

katie said...

yay! the red daily planner from moleskine is on my list too!

Chelsea said...

Awww... what an adorable kitty :) My lady and I have two ourselves, and they both just love cuddle/pet time.

My dream list is extensive. Mostly includes clothes, shoes, and home decor :)

Jen said...

love your hair! and your wishlist is fabulous (love that french bull dog calender) and those over the knee socks look so cozy :)

A-C said...

I posted a pretty reasonable wishlist here:

But if I wanted a dream list, I would probably add the boots you posted, a wedding dress and some fancy jewelry. :)

khdz said...

your house looks cozy :)
a bird skull necklace is on my list too. along with something faux-fur and a pair of laced heels.

Elaine said...

You ARE young and fabulous! :) And that is a great wishlist! Right now, my number one coveted item is a pair of black boots. Hopefully, I can find them before the weather gets worse!

Robin said...

I actually bought that planner a few months ago- then realized it didn't start til the end of December! I've been sitting on it, waiting until Christmas ever since...

Tieka, Selective Potential said...

Great dream list!

And thank you for your comment.. it means the world because I've been reading your blog for a while and to have one of my favorites say I'm one of their new favorites is just heart melting! :D

I have the same mug from Target. I like it for around home, but it doesn't fit in the cup holder in my car, which is kind of awkward.
LOVE those measuring spoons! Those are on my list, for sure!
