Currently on the hunt for a pair of black pumps. Simple things, classics really, are all about the right shape, the right cut, the right material.  Think simple white T. Or  jacket. Finding The One is not as easy as one might think, right?

It’s highly time for the first Wanted list of this year, mesdames et messieurs. As always I have chosen a few things that I love or would love to have:

(1) the gentlewoman isn’t really a surprise, I’m never getting tired of saying how much I love this magazine. A few weeks ago I checked the website in order to learn about the new issue and the release date, but nothing has been revealed yet. So I was really happy when Natalie shared the new cover with me via Twitter earlier this week. I must say I really like it and what I might  like even more is the prospect of interviews with Susan Sarandon and Isabel Marant. Simply put: Can’t wait to get my hands on a copy! (2) I’m not quite sure if I just like the idea of striped shoes or if I would actually wear them. (3) I heard so many good things about that mask that I’m really tempted to try it. (4) My Instagram account is flooded with pictures of coffee, so it may be hard to believe that I am serious tea drinker as well. I love the simplicity of this enamel tea pot and would love to have it around in my kitchen. (5) To find the perfect T is not as easy as it might seem in the first place. The Gap menswear section is a great option in my opinion. (6) the row. Again. I simply can’t help myself. The price tag might be ridiculous, their range of products on the other hand is ridiculously good looking.

Do you have some current favourites? I would love to hear…

(1) the gentlewoman (2) Zara: Pumps (3)  Aesop: Parsley Seed Cleansing Mask (4) The old faithful shop: Enamel Tea Pot (5) Gap: The Essential Crewneck T (6) the row: shoulder bag

This week’s wanted list is dedicated to the upcoming holidays and more precisely to what I would consider a perfectly suited outfit…
(3) You can never go wrong with a black and white combination and the perfect base for that is a wool-twill black pencil skirt. (1) A simple white shirt would definitely be a good choice, but I found an even better option: a white peplum top. (6) To round the whole look up, I suggest these classic black pumps which are currently available at Zara. Make-up wise I would go for a dark colour for the nails and a bold red lip. (2) Butter London offers a great palette of shades, so I would probably pick a dark grey over the usual black. (5) Chanel offers in turn great options when it comes to finding the perfect red lipstick. The shade Pirate looks just about perfect in my opinion. When it comes to accessories, choose wisely. A peplum top offers enough amount of detail, so one piece of jewellery would be probably more than enough. (4) Maybe a cutout ring by Samma? (7) And since it was one of the subjects on this blog last week, I would consider this silver clutchbag by 202Factory as my evening companion (which I discovered thanks to Sabrina by the way).

(1) Topshop: Sleeveless Zip Peplum Top (2) Butter London: Chimney-sweep nail laqueur (3) J.Crew: Wool-twill Pencil Skirt (4) Samma: Cutouts Ring (5) Chanel: Chanel Rouge Allure in the colour Pirate (6) Zara: leather pumps (7) 202Factory: Simply Silver Clutchbag
