Feelin’ extra witchy lately. Must be that fall magic in the air. Here are some things that have currently got a spell on me.
1 // This incredible Cast Away gown by Free People is absolutely enchanting!
2 // I want this little batty bangle by Frosted Willow on my wrist right now.
3 // I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect bar cart that fits my living room style and this wood and brass one by Target couldn’t be more perfect.
4 // I have a bit of a fixation with hand figurines. Love these cast iron wall hook hands from Modcloth.
5 // Really wanting a canvas and leather bag for carrying my laptop to class. Currently smitten with this coffee colored one on Etsy.
6 // Love these adorable little teeth earrings by Magic Circle!
7 // Stephen King’s sequel to The Shining just came out last month. That’s right. 36 years later, we find out how Danny’s been doing after the Overlook Hotel. Can’t wait to get my hands on a copy of Doctor Sleep!
I’ve been on a major online buying spree lately. Mostly I just enjoy the feeling of getting something in the mail more than I like the actual items I’m buying. Here’s a few things I wish would magically show up in my mailbox.
1 // Why must this lovely chiffon dress from ASOS be so out of my price range? D: There’s something about the transition from summer into fall that makes me want to live in flowy long skirts and floral maxis for days.
2 // I’m super cheap when it comes to jewelry. I won’t usually spend over $5 for a ring, but these gorgeous one-of-a-kind gold-edged arrowhead rings from Lux Divine have been taunting and tempting me to break my budget all week.
3 // Wish no more! I just bought this goat skin rug on Ebay and can’t wait to have it in my home!
4 // I’m a sucker for designspiration books full of graphic eye candy like Little Book of Lettering. I also unfortunately passed up buying this Pictorial History of Horror Movies coffee table book at the swap meet and totally regretted not getting it. It’s full of full color pages of old horror posters!
5 // Smitten with this whimsical bat print by Emily Martin of The Black Apple. Might need to get it to decorate my new workspace.
