So I'm posting a wishlist for this week's Weekly Tops and sharing the nice things I've laid my eyes on.
1. Ernest Hemingway - The Collected Stories from Everyman's Library
This is the finest edition I have yet seen. It has everything in it; the cover and the paper quality is dreamy and it's Hemingway. No explanation needed.
2. Classic Sheffield by Daniel Wellington
I have so many doubts about this watch because I cannot decide between this and the Classic St. Andrews. I have a feeling that the brown band will go better with my skin and my general closet but the black is always the new black and it's a classic in every way. I'll go with the rose gold with black and silver with brown. maybe I'll buy both and prove that I cannot possibly make a choice between two perfect watches.
3. Duffle Coats
These remind me of my childhood coats and I love them to bits. They are casual yet chic and not sloppy but comfortable. I don't like being too fancy on a regular day - I feel self conscious and I feel like I'm trying too hard; because I am rarely fancy enough to pull off a fancy outfit. I am much better off in casual and cozy clothes. This Burberry one I particularly love; but unless any of you decide to give me a late birthday present, it's off my table.
4. Leather Oxfords/Brogues for autumn
My feet are not the easiest to find the perfect shoes for. I am broad-footed, I have high arches and my shoe size is something between 5 - 5.5 (38-39) which makes it not so much fun to shop for shoes. I also cannot wear very flat shoes due to my arches since they start to ache instantly. So I need the perfect leather shoes for rainy yet not freezing days of autumn and I hope to find them soon. Sigh. This pair is from Dorothy Perkins and nowhere near being comfortable enough for me. But they are pretty.
5. A one-way ticket to London or Oxford
Okay, this is not exactly an item. But I miss London more than I miss home in most occasions and I am actually hurting when I see the photos of my most beloved city. It's been almost a year since I last stepped foot in London and the more I write about it, the more I miss it, so I will stop. Could someone nice enough offer me a job there, pretty please?
What do you wish for nowadays?
