004 items im lusting after

time for another episode of items im lusting after. i wonder if making these posts serve as a shopping list for me...or a way to deter me from getting everything on it haha :)

guerlain blush g serie noire
supposed to be the fancy sister to nars orgasm. do i need this? absolutely not. do i desperately long for it? yes, yes i do.

nars e/s duo in cordura (courtesy of onsugar.com)
boring browns but hey it would definitely get some loving from me. i love rich dark shades of brown. does anyone have this duo as well as brousse? i want both but i hear they are similar duos...

i absolutely love golden goose boots. i see so many styles by them and i love almost everything they have. but their prices are outrageous! this one retails for about $1300. sigh. if you want to see them in action, search for reese witherspoon or ashley tisdale in golden goose boots. they wear them spectacularly.

now onto a little something i wanted to talk about. some recent trends that have me really scratching my head in puzzlement. here are a couple popular items that i just dont understand why they are!

jeffrey campbell lita shoe (courtesy of thestylester.com)
i just dont understand the craze with this shoe. the lace up part i totally understand, i am all for the lace up boot trend; but the overall shape and exaggerated platform just arent appealing to me. they remind me of a modern twist of the 70's platform...

long lost cousin? any resemblance?

crackle nail polish (courtesy of modelbayarea.com)
this has recently has become the hip new trend for this year and i really dont understand it. to me, it looks like chipped nail polish...isnt that something you want to avoid? opi recently released a shatter polish with the katy perry collection, and china glaze is set to release a WHOLE collection of shatter polishes *face palm.

of course these things are just not for me, if you like them rock it! i also want to mention that i have been loving anything studded. i have always had a love affair with studs (alexander wang rocco bag why cant you be mine?!?), so it isnt a surprise to me. what have you been loving (or puzzled by!) lately?
