Happy Monday, everyone!
First, an apology: I feel horrible about my recent lack-of interaction both here and on your own blogs via comments. I have been dealing with a nasty cold that just won’t go away, and unfortunately, it has drained all of the energy out of me. I had hoped to catch up on my blog-reading this weekend, but, truthfully, I slept most of it away, so I am hoping to do that over the next few days. I mentioned this in last week’s Friend Friday post, but I truly do believe that comments and the conversation they bring are the lifeblood of this blog, and so many others. I am sorry I have been so lacking lately.
Now, on to this week’s Lust List! I went through a phase where I was on a massive boot-kick. Now I seem to have moved onto a jewelry kick instead. I was visiting the blog 5 Inch and Up last night when I came across this post on a stunning collection of jewelry from the S/S 2011 collections. Among my favorites are the pieces by Dominic Jones. I can’t wait to see those in more detail, but in the meantime, I love these pieces from his Fall/Winter 2010 line:
There also seems to have been a recent resurgence of body chain jewelry. I love this “vest” by designer Soo Ihn Kim. It’s a bit more tame than some of the pieces I have seen, but still makes a statement.
Moving away from jewelry, I absolutely adore the bead detail on this shift dress by Cynthia Vincent. Despite the bead work and rhinestones, it’s a simple design, and the rust color makes it wearable for the Fall months and even into winter.
Then, of course, I have to lust over a new pair of boots. Love the color and shape of these Sam Edelman over-the-knee boots. The buckle and strap detailing at the top give them an edge over some of the other boots that are hot right now.
Finally, there is this tough-girl chic Burberry Prorsum belt. It’s wide. It’s leather. And it’s embellished with gold hooks. What’s not to love?!
What about you – have the S/S 2011 fashion shows inspired any of your recent purchases (or any new loves)?
