A few things at the top of my current lust list…

the fashion magpie lust list

+Thierry Colson dress. This is going to be my first spring wardrobe purchase! I have always been intrigued by this French brand and have seen several ultra-chic women wear it. I love this unexpected green Liberty print, and the shape is my preferred silhouette — long, body-skimming!

+Gucci barrette. I have a weakness for frivolous, #extra accessories. They can completely take a “lather-rinse-repeat” look into “I feel amazing” territory.

+Oomph tini table. We still need a lot of furniture for our new home, and I have been eyeing one of these fun and fabulous Oomph tables for probably a decade. I am thinking it would be punchy in our front, formal living room, which currently has an elegant mint green rug from Jayson Home (exact one sold out, but similar in design/vibe to this, just a lot more mint-green-centric) and some inherited traditional pieces from my grandparents and could use a little POP of modernity in the form of this table.

+Celine Sangle bag in Amazone. This is my current designer bag obsession. I haven’t bought a new, prestige designer bag in awhile and am thinking I might treat myself to this in 2022. I know several of you have this exact style and most of the feedback has been ecstatic. A few of you have urged me to go into a boutique to determine whether the size will dwarf me and how I feel about the shoulder strap, which some of you have said slides off the shoulder easily. Just passing along the intel in case you’re in the same market!

+Lettrefina sham. Just so many fabulous monogram options!

+B+AB cardigan. I just love the Chanel vibes and raspberry hue of this $160 cardi.

+Oscar de la Renta dress. I mean — the color, the bow. Insanely chic. My sister will be having her belated wedding celebration in May and am already contemplating something spectacular. I’m not sure whether this OLDR is too informal for the occasion. Other contenders on my mind: something by Markarian, this Damaris Bailey, this Borgo de Nor, this Zimmermann, or this Agua Bendita.

+Isabel Marant sunglasses. Just fun! And unexpected! Pair all spring with white button downs and dresses and feel immediately cool.

+Citizens of Humanity Charlotte jeans. So many of you have been raving about this fit and I love the wash.

+Mrs. Alice placemats. I have featured these and similar placemats so many times on the blog but never purchased myself a set. Recently, we have been hosting more small/intimate dinner parties and I have been thinking how much I wish I had a set of these. I love the bow motif and of course the blue is perfection! The Avenue also has some fabulous placemat options.

+Antique Gustavian chests. I have been poring over 1st Dibs lately — there are so many insanely chic antique finds that have been catching my eye. How fabulous would these be in either a guest bedroom or somewhere unexpected in a living space, i.e., flanking a fire place.

P.S. Cardigans and turtlenecks are still in heavy rotation in these parts. My favorite look this season.

P.P.S. I have been having a weak spot for statement earrings recently…you know my Shrimps earrings Mr. Magpie gave me? I found some lookalikes on Etsy for under $40!

P.P.P.S. Lots of great home finds here, here, and here.

  1. I have never heard of Vita Grace before, but just made a thorough browse of their website after clicking the link for your Pearl cardigan. I’m intrigued… the price point is so approachable. What’s your experience with the quality?

    1. Hi Anna! The quality is solid — the sweater is a surprisingly nice, thick weight. I will point out that the cuffs are frayed (intentionally), so just a heads up on that, as my mom HATES that (and many other women might, too!)


  2. I am a Celine lover and have several of their handbags. While I am obsessed with the green color, I thought the Sangle bag was a bit large for my frame (also petite) and I did not like the shorter strap. I also prefer leather straps because the fabric ones pill.

    I just got the teen size classic bag and it is a perfect size for petites. It is quite delicate but I like that it can be worn several ways with the adjustable strap. It also comes in the Amazone green ! I also purchased the small bucket bag in canvas and it is great for everyday (especially out with kids). I feel chic but it is casual and durable for everyday use.

    1. Hi Marcie! Thank you so much for the intel. Agree that the green color is beyond fab. I will absolutely go into the store to investigate! Thank you!
