Shopping List.

I am starting a shopping list of major items that I would like to purchase in the next year. So far it is only a small list of big things that I have been wanting for a long, long time now.

1. A designer watch. I have always adored Marc by Marc Jacob watches, and this lovely gal I know showed me hers the other day and it was simply divine. The ones that I have been eyeing are between $150-$225, so I will have to put aside a jar to save up in for this piece of jewelry.

2. Chanel No. 5. Who could name a more classic perfume for a women to wear? Coco Chanel is such an inspirational figure to me, and I would love to have the honor of owning something from Chanel, and Chanel No. 5 would be my number one choice, by far. This is $260/oz, so if I ever do purchase this then I will be getting a limited supply of it. (Right now I go and ask for samples that I take home and use 'for a french assignment').

3. A white lace, vintage dress that I discovered today when searching high and low for a dress similar to that of the dress worn in Factory Girl when Edie and Andy met for the very first time. I searched for this when I discovered that the theme of our Prom this year is 'Keep It Classy', and even though I do not expect to go to Prom, I decided that I should be prepared. Just in case. I found one almost exact, only to find that it had been sold, but my hopes were replinished when I ran into this other dress costing $158.

All of these items are a bit out of my price rang at this point, but I have decided to save up, and simply wait and see what happens.

In the mean time, I must be on the lookout of tights with interesting design details, high socks, and boots.

P.S. Imagine all 3 of my top items together, what a lovely sight that would be.

oooh I really need to take a leaf out of your book and plan ahead. I like the buy less but spend a little bit more on them sort of mentality. I try but somehow it doesn't work, i think I might write a list like you and save save save.
marc jacobs watches are beauts!
