What I Really Want:

1. Kiki de Montparnasse leather lace back bustier. I am OBSESSED with this leather bustier and it is entirely possible that I will be unable to go on living without it. You hear that? I COULD DIE. DIE!!!!! [$750, Barneys New York]

2. Hunter rain boots. I really, really need to invest in a solid weatherproof boot for this winter. Unfortunately, all weatherproof boots seem to have one thing in common: they are HIDEOUS. Those Sorel boots that everyone who isn’t a picky asshole loves? Not for me. I hunted down this short (for me, ’cause I’m short) Chelsea boot-inspired pair by Hunter (ha ha) and they’re purrrrrrfect. Now I just need someone to buy them for me. Anyone? Please? [$125, Zappos]

3. Ragdoll kitten. You can never have too many cats, right? I am dying for one of these huge, beautiful, blue-eyed babies, but I am forbidden from having pets in my apartment complex. Sigh. A girl can dream.

4. Chloé shoulder bag. Here is another thing that I feel very strongly that I will die without. Obviously I need help, but if I have to pay for inpatient psychotherapy, how will I ever afford $1,495 purses? [$1,495, Net-a-porter]

5. Satomi Kawakita emerald ring. Because it’s tiny, and delicate, and perfect, and emerald is my birthstone. Also, reasonably affordable! [$220, Catbird]
