Accessories, Home, Hotels, International, Lust List, Shoes, TravelLust List: May 2009

ONE. L.A.M.B. Lita Sandal — I don’t always love Gwen Stefani’s fashion choices, but I definitely admire the fact that she’s so confident about her sense of style and I almost always covet the shoes in her L.A.M.B. line.  This sandal caught my eye online and I’m currently trying to find it at a store near me so I can go and gawk at it in person.  It has the high (4 1/2 inch) heel that I strive for in a shoe, and the fringed T-strap is so different and adorable.  I love the tiny ruffles too – they add a touch of femininity to a rock and roll leather sandal that would make them perfect to wear with jeans or a cute summer dress.  They’re not terribly out of my price range, but at $355, unless they go on a major sale, they probably won’t be making it into my closet.  (Unless Gwen is reading this and wants to send them to me.  Hint, hint…) – Staceyicon

TWO. Emirates A380 First Class Flight —  Usually my first class flights are limited to when I’m not paying mostly because I think they’re overrated and not worth the money. But, when I heard of the New York – Dubai first class route on the new Emirates A380, I made it my goal to board (though, hopefully also not have to pay).  This flight clocks in at $18,000 but comes with some of the most amazing amenities I’ve ever heard of- like a first class shower and spa. 2 lounges/bars, and your own private suite with vanity table, mirror, and wardrobe.  Emirates has long been known for delivering exceptional service but now the first class features and the top of the line plane make the flight a unique experience. – Carolyn

THREE. Tom Ford Claudia Round-Lens Sunglasses — This might be the first Lust List item I actually ever work up the courage to purchase!  The Bloomingdales/Saks saleswomen hate me because I try on these Tom Ford Claudia sunglasses every couple months and just gaze at my reflection, torn with indecision.  I love the way these round frames highlight my cheekbones and the luxurious bamboo side detail.  I feel Riviera-in-a-convertible-glam in whenever I put these glasses on, even in the midst of Winter.  The only thing I don’t love is the price.  I haven’t bought any designer sunglasses yet only because I’m scared of carelessly scratching them one day and ruining them forever, which is something I don’t have to worry about with my thift store finds and H&M bargains.  I came thisclose to buying these sunglasses at Duty Free a few weeks ago, but after doing the conversion to dollars, realized that I didn’t save any money by buying it there.  Ultimately, I decided that I would finally take the plunge upon my return to New York.   But after just spending money for a Mother’s Day present, I’m hesitating again.   But mark my words, one day, these sunglasses will be mine! – Kathleen

FOUR. FTD Flower of the Month Club — With spring in the air, there’s nothing more I want this month than to have a year-long subscription to this club. I love the idea of fresh blooms on my desk every month. It’s a gorgeous and decadent treat that you know that’s coming every month. Plus, flowers always cheer me up – even if they’re from myself! Of course, since the subscription is nearly $500, I’ll just have to settle for an occasional indulgence of a bouquet from the farmer’s market. – Connieicon

FIVE. Goldeneye Resort in Oracabessa, Jamaica — This month, I’m lusting after the Goldeneye Resort, one of the most exclusive resorts in the Caribbean. Located in Oracabessa, Jamaica, it was once the home of Ian Fleming, author of the James Bond novels. After seeing photos of the beautiful beach and private villas, it’s easy to see how inspired Fleming was, writing tales of international intrigue and espionage while looking out onto this ocean view. You may have seen Goldeneye recently featured on Bridget Marquardt’s Travel Channel show, Bridget’s Sexiest Beaches. It’s safe to say I’m hooked as she is on this secluded celebrity resort. Staying at Goldeneye will remain on my Lust List for now – but I hope to be able to visit and lounge on James Bond Beach during my trip to Jamaica in a few weeks! – Nina

    I saw some very similar shoes at calvin klein the other day.

    The heel is a little bit shorter, but they’re also only $110 🙂

    Vanessa, wow, they definitely look really similar! Thanks for the great find!
