Lucite. As you may have gathered from my post last Friday, I’m sorta smitten with it. (I think it’s a requirement of the consummate bloggerina — must own a lucite chair, write on a Macbook, and prominently display well-styled trays in all rooms of the house.)
Lucite, lucite, and more lucite. Love, love, love. Items currently living on my lucite lust list (how’s that for alliteration?)? This pair of vintage lamps (homigod — imagine one at either end of a pristine white desk, bureau, or dresser) from Lobel Modern (no price listed…aka, terrifying):
Perhaps a colorful bowl or two displaying trinkets / candies ($48 for set of 4):
Or maybe a monogrammed plate ($38) with some baubles on top?
I’ve also been cooing over a pair of Staffordshire dog statuettes, and think one of these would make an excellent addition to any well-styled tableau ($160 for pair):
What a happy treat in the a.m.! I have to add that my dream would be to further accent this room with this ridiculously delish daybed ($1,800). I know that Mr. Magpie is wincing uncomfortably at the thought of this puppy living in our house, but…a girl can dream. And I’d further girlify with this kiss print by the talented Sara Singh ($200):
No but really?! Is it real?! I love. Other add-ons to this dream room? A lucite trash bin ($19), naturally.
Of course, the lucite trend needn’t be just for home. Consider a crossover trend in your wardrobe. I love, for example, this Vanessa Mooney necklace ($100), especially layered with neon or sparkley baubles:
To my mind, the necklace above goes hand in hand with these edgy Jeffrey Campbell sloafers ($170), which are all the rage this season:
Alternately, any of the lovely baubles below…perhaps a long crystal pendant from Dara Ettinger ($253), a sparkly bangle or two from Alexis Bittar (did you know Alexis is a man?! — $255), or a casual watch ($60)?
Finally, one of my favorite bloglets, A Piece of Toast, ran an interesting post on the blogger-chic trend of clear clutches and recommended this affordable Minusey style ($78) for those of you wishing to get the look for less.
I like the idea…but would much prefer the good ol Phillip Lim Pashli ($650) in the clear fabrication. TO DIE. I know I’ve featured the Pashli in every possible size, color, and formulation over the past week or so…but it’s really that good. I must own one.
