{birthday week} what a girl wants...

In a perfect world, here's what I would like for my birthday. You know, just a few treats to adorn myself with. But the kind of 'I love you, always forever' treasures that will last me another quarter century at least. At 25, I'm feeling a really strong pull towards classic pieces that will last a lifetime (read: wildly expensive collectors items). I don't think they really need too much explanation, but just in case... The Tom Binns necklace is pretty much the end-all-be-all of statement necklaces as far as I'm concerned. I don't know if any one item sums up my tastes better than it does: classic elements with vintage appeal, and glamorous with a playful twist. The Chanel 2.55 is what it is: a classic bag that has held it's own as symbol of status and taste generation after generation. It's perfect. The Reiss bomber is a trendy now, cool forever jacket. (I promise.) I believe a girl needs at least one seriously bad*ss leather jacket in her life, and this one hits the mark for me. The Cartier Tank watch is elegant and masculine and timeless (ha). It's an alligator band with a gold face and Princess Diana wore one.
