This is Totally Coveted, our new whenever series documenting all the super ridiculous crap we want but (probably, most certainly) are too sensible to buy. Hey, a girl can dream — about $1,200 shoes — can’t she? Take a peek at what we’re coveting, and then tell us what you’re lusting after in the comments!
1. Suno Round Neck Tulip Dress, $358
Julie: Y’all know I love a dress. But this tulip dress from Suno really raises the bar. I’ve loved Suno since their first collection in 2008. Designers Erin Beatty and Max Osterweis love mixing fabrics and textures, and create totally one-of-a-kind edgy-but-classy designs. This one combines a regular cotton fabric with a jacquard print. I want it in my closet now.
2. Jeffrey Campbell Lindi Buckle Back Boot, $248
Rachel: I know, I know, thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s goods and all, but I can’t help it: I’ve been suffering from a serious case of style envy lately. My condition has probably been precipitated by the fact that I just moved to Williamsburg (go ahead, roll your eyes, I’ll do the same), where the general population is both inherently modelesque and impeccably turned-out. I’ve noticed a trend (Williamsburg? trends? no way!) among said residents, who might I add are notoriously difficult to part from their ankle boots even as temperatures soar well above 90 degrees — they’re still wearing black leather ankle boots, flat, heeled, somewhere in between, what have you, but they’ve got ventilation in them. Holes? Cutouts? I am not certain of the exact vernacular, but I just know I’ve got to get me a pair of these VENTILATED BOOTS! I love the metal cap on the toe of this pair from Jeffrey Campbell… but, woe, they don’t come in my Victorian-era size 5.
3. Ippolita Turquoise Teardrop Necklace, $895
Winona: I would literally wear this necklace every day of my life. It would look just as good with a white tank top as it would with a lacy black evening gown (not that I have any reason to wear evening gowns in my day-to-day life, and, come to think of it, I’m way too scared of mustard to ever wear a white tank top). Still, the potential versatility has me drooling to add it to my jewelry box!
4. DKNY Layered Maxi-Dress, $175
Rachel: It goes without saying that it’s a million degrees outside right now, and I want to wear precisely none of the clothes. Especially none of my clothes, all of which have been seeming a bit stale lately. I’ve just worn everything so many times, it’s hard to get excited about getting dressed in the morning, especially when all I want to wear is one single item, like a dress or romper. (Are there other single-item outfits? I don’t know. Doesn’t seem likely.) A maxi dress is perfect for this no-desire-to-dress-myself, grab-it-and-go mentality, and yes, ventilation, in the form of two side slits, is KEY. Want.
5. Isabel Marant Shearling-lined Wedge Boots, $840
Winona: I don’t even know how to explain why I’m obsessing over these weird, awkward, wholly unattractive slipper/snow boot hybrids, I JUST AM. They’re like comfort food for your feet. But unlike a bowl of mac and cheese, they cost $840. What is wrong with me?
