A MILLE DRESS // Seen above. Everything about this voluminous, floral print dress is up my alley. Nightgown dressing at its finest. (H&M has a similarly cut dress for less here, and this &OtherStories style — also available in a similarly patterned blouse — projects a similar cottage chic vibe.)
ARTIS BRUSHES // I already have and love the Oval 6 — perfect size for concealer, though I have also been using it for foundation/tinted moisturizer. I now want the Oval 8, which I think is even better suited for foundation application. Have I raved enough about these brushes?! I’m obsessed! Full review here. (And their even larger size, the Oval 10, is on sale for almost 50% off here.)
NO. 6 CLOG BOOTS // I managed to kill three pairs of boots last winter. This year, I already purchased these snakeskin Paris Texas tall boots but I intend to buy a pair of these clog boots for everyday schlepping (look for less with these).
SEA DRESS // For Thanksgiving day!
NARCISCO RODRIGUEZ PERFUME // My longtime favorite. I have been dappling in Jo Malone and Carven for the past year or two but I always come back to NR. It’s a softly spiced, musky floral scent. So feminine. I love it.
FLEECE FOR THE CHILDREN // Eyeing this for mini and this for micro. I just know that if I don’t buy it now, we’ll wake up one morning in September and it will have turned cold over night and all the good colors will be sold out.
DAILY MULTIVITAMINS // I have gotten sick too many times this year — the flu, a stomach virus, and of course coronavirus. Yuck. My immune system must be so weak right now. I am trying to improve my health by getting more sleep, drinking more water, and taking vitamins. I’ve always been skeptical of vitamins but they can’t hurt. Mary Ruth’s products gets really good reviews, as do Ritual’s. Currently debating between the two.
GEECHIE BOY GRITS // We have always only used Anson Mill grits (so delicious — also you must try their outrageously satisfying toasted oats!), but a reader wrote in about Geechie Boy and I’m intrigued.
AGUA BENDITA SWIMSUIT // To tuck away for next summer. I don’t usually fit well into this brand’s sizing (cut for tall women, I think!), but this suit is haunting me…
ARTWORK FOR OUR MASTER BEDROOM // I have been loosely looking for some artwork to hang above the dresser in our master bedroom. I think Mr. Magpie would kill me if I suggested this hand-painted triptych, as he already complains that we have too much chinoiserie and too much blue in our house. I have long loved these textiles by Paule Marrot…perhaps I can convince him to go with one of those. They are stunning. And speaking of artwork, I am also considering this set of vintage white Majolica oyster plates. Wouldn’t they be unbelievable mounted on a wall in our dining room?!
