Many bloggers, especially fashion and lifestyle bloggers, have their top 10 lists, top 5 lists, favorite things list, or a to-do list. Who am I to thumb my nose at tradition? So, today I am debuting my weekly (bi-weekly, monthly, as the mood strikes me) list of things I adore. The Deo Volente Album (Latin-Deo=God, Volente=willing, Album=list), is a list of fashion and beauty items, I have come across and am hoping to acquire.
I get a lot of catalogs, magazines, department store sales circulars, and email alerts, so my eyegate is bombarded with new and dazzling items to purchase on a daily basis.
Some things, I look at and say, “Love it, but unless my parents win the lottery (*pious look* I don’t play the evil lottery) and break me off a huge chunk of money, I won’t be getting this anytime soon.” Somethings, I look at and say “Cute, but I ain’t pressed.” Other things I see *cue the angelic harps and the bright, shining light from above*, I look heavenward and say, “God willing, I will get this within the next three paychecks.”
I pray the item does not sell out, I pray I get a coupon or discount code, I pray for a super-sale, and/or I pray that the utility company will discover I have overpaid for several years and send me a rebate check (hasn’t happened yet, but………you never know).
Here we go.
DEO VOLENTE ALBUM
#1 The Isabelle Beaded Blouse from Alloy. I love this blouse, and if and when I get it, I will wear the stank out of it!
#2 I love Gap Premium Collection pants. I have two pairs in black; the Modern Boot and the Perfect Trouser. The Perfect Trouser is my fave of the two and I have decided I must have a pair in grey.
#3 The ALDO Donilan wedge. I need a pair of brown wedges to wear with some of the boot cut jeans I have in my closet. Wedges give me the height and the stability I need as a big, tall girl.
#4 The ALDO Curly wedge. I have decided I can wear this shoe in the winter with opaque tights and skirts, leggings, jeggings, jeans, or pants. I just adore this shoe. There, I said it! I adore it!
#5 Last, but not least, the Mica Shoulder Pad Blazer from Simply Be. This should really be at the top of the list, because it sold out once before and I was ……….well, let’s just say I was disappointed. I don’t care what anybody thinks, I love shoulder pads. These are a little exaggerated, but I could see this jacket with my ASOS Tutu skirt or some black jean jeggings.
Ok people, tell me what you think.
