Pinterest is my addiction. I can (and, all too often, do) spend hours at a time scrolling and pinning. It’d all be harmless fun if I didn’t so regularly buy the things I see. That, however, is only possible in the case where the pin in question links to the website where the piece of clothing/pair of shoes/cute handbag is available for purchase.
Unfortunately, this is seldom the case with pins, thus my boards are full to bursting point with things that I either have no idea where to buy, or I never have a hope of being able to afford. Never before has there been a first world problem of such a magnitude.
With this in mind, I bring you the first in a series of blog posts of the items on my Pinterest boards I most want, and can’t have; the individual pieces from my Style board.
Tokyo Crystal Wrap Watch
This Tokyo Crystal Wrap Watch is definitely one of the items on my Style board that I most long for. Coral and gold are so beautiful together. Yet, I don’t own any coral or gold clothes or accessories. This could have been the purchase to change all that.
The pin originally came from Shopbop.com, with the watch costing €125.51. Unfortunately, it’s sold out, and has been for the last four months since I originally pinned it. I have yet to come to terms with this heartbreak.
Haute Hippie Beaded Snake Halter
Another item from my board that is cruelly out of stock. I have the biggest grá for maxi dresses because of their ability to flatter any figure and make you feel like you’re wearing jammies. This particular dress is just a beautiful cut/shape/fabric.
The dress and belt are from revolveclothing.com. Regardless of the status of the dress, its sale price is €587.89, and frankly, no matter how many times I open my purse and shake it, I can’t seem to find that kind of money in it.
This is one of those pins I repinned from some other gal’s board and I haven’t the foggiest idea where it might be from. My guess is somewhere expensive though, because look at that detail. No, really, just sit back and appreciate the whole jacket for a second. It’s flawless.
The model should close her mouth though. She’ll catch flies.
