Well you guys I did next to nothing of worth today so instead of showing you my awesome outfit of jeans/curling pants and a sweatshirt, here are a few things I'm currently lusting after. Maybe I'll do this monthly. Maybe I won't. WHO KNOWS?! Keep reading to find out! ;)
I can't lie to y'all, my April clothing budget is going directly to these curling shoes by Olson. For the last however many years curling shoes have been around, they have been made in many colours, all of which are called black. I've been holding off on purchasing curling shoes a) because I'm poor, boo hoo; b) because I wasn't sure if I could make this a Thing like horseback riding is; and c) because curling shoes are u-g-l-y you ain't got no alibi. Then Olson came along with these amazing shoes! My feet are burning to have the shoes on them. Basically, my feet want to go to there.
When Rebecca with an R posted herself wearing an adorable dress from eShakti, I was on that site like white on rice. I'm a little crushed that her dress isn't available anymore, but then I found this puppy. The colour is perfect, the chest detail is perfect, and I have heard nothing but good about eShakti's customer service and tailoring. Yeah, they do custom sizing. I need some of that in my life.
I follow a blog called It's Nice That, and a long time ago they did a post on Coralie Bickford-Smith's cover designs for new Penguin Classics. The one word to describe these books is beauty and everything the definition embodies; every cover is simplistic in design but intricately detailed and perfectly coloured. I especially love this cover of The Odyssey, and I also covet this edition of my favourite book, Tess of the d'Urbervilles. I would love Smith & Penguin to collab on The Aeneid too!
What do you covet for April?
