Need vs. Want

A little coveting to start off the week, courtesy of 1st Dibs.

Hermès Black Crocodile Birkin Bag – a steal at $74,750.
No comment on how ridiculous this is.

Thea Porter caftan, ca. 1960s-70s.

Cartier ring, ca. 1970s-80s.

1980s Christian Dior taffeta ruffled opera wrap.
(I have a special weakness for any piece that
can be styled multiple ways.)

Chanel trench, ca. 1980s-90s.

1998 Chanel dress and belt
(although I wish the belt had a little less logo)

(Pair with:

Valentino studded sandals, at Saks.)

...and, for the girl who has everything:

1980s Chloé silk chiffon dress,
formerly owned by Lauren Bacall

All Wants, needless to say. But it's good inspiration and it makes me happy just to know these pieces are out there.

More at 1st Dibs.

I think I've come back to this post no less than seven times a day since it was published and will probably need to permanently bookmark it along with Best Foot Forward as my go-to "happy places."
