Accessories, Fashion, Hotels, International, Jewelry, Lust List, Shoes, TravelLust List: November 2009

ONE. Balmain Quilted Leather Skirt — I’ve very much been riding the Balmain train for the last 2 seasons…well in spirit at least, since 100% of objects on this said train are out of my fiscal reach.  At any rate, I’ve been lusting after this quilted Balmain leather skirt since I first laid eyes on it. I love a piece of leather clothing and even more so when it has intricate details such as the quilting and the threading at the hem.  I would rock the skirt with anything form ankle booties as shown to stiletto sandals. I suppose my best bet for scoring these would be to wait for it to pop up on theOutnet and trust me I will be first in line to order it! – Carolyn

TWO. Lanvin Happy Partage Metallic Lamé Bag — Love – the one word that sprung to my mind upon looking at Lanvin’s Happy Partage metallic lame bag. I don’t love bags very often, and the last one was the Sofia Coppola Louis Vuitton bag, but this is my new favorite. The bag is chic, with its classic gray rectangular shape and turnlock, but still very romantic looking with its intertwined leather and gold chain, adorned with a polished, but floppy black bow. The leather is soft, incredibly soft, and durable with the silver lame very forgiving at hiding any scratches I might get from carrying it around too much. I’ve invested in a few classic pieces over the year, but I definitely want this one to be my next! – Kathleen

THREE. Alexandra Neel Mascara Zipper Suede Booties — I love, love, love the exposed zipper look that’s so hot this season. It looks great on dresses, tops, and especially on shoes. These suede booties are a classic black shade so I would get a lot of use out of them, but the zipper detail at the top is sort of tough and feminine all at the same time. The four inch heel is my favorite height to wear, too. I’m dying for someone to magically make them appear in my closet so I could pair them with skinny jeans and a simple black top. How pretty would that be? – Stacey

FOUR. Jennifer Elizabeth Devonshire Necklace – This gorgeous necklace is over-the-top glam yet still edgy! Made with vintage rhinestone baubles and smoky silk dupioni woven through a heavy vintage silver chain, this is a statement-making necklace that I’m so obsessing over.  At $1,065, this sadly won’t be in my jewelry box anytime soon…though a girl can dream! – Connie

FIVE. InterContinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa — My first quarter as a graduate student is ending soon, and I have to admit, I’m already a little burnt out. I’m lusting after an exotic getaway to relieve the stress of academia, and I’ve been researching places that I’ve never been before. French Polynesia is on the top of my list and this InterContinental resort and spa in Bora Bora is simply amazing. All of the guest accommodations are overwater bungalows with beautiful beach and lagoon views. Can you just imagine diving right of the deck of your bungalow and snorkeling in the clear, blue water? The views alone seem like something out of a movie, and there’s an air of romance and privacy. What a beautiful place! – Nina
