I would buy these things on my (mostly)frivolous wish list:
$399.00 Bose Sound Dock.I love music. I listen to it all the time. My daughter is evidence enough since she has been dancing since she was 7 months old and could sit up and bounce/sway/move her shoulders. Currently I am toting around a pair of old computer speakers and my iPod. Works alright, but doesn't have the sound or the look this much prettier choice has.
$164.99 16 gig iPod Nano - Pink
Again, I love music! I am currently using my 4 gig Nano that I bought with 4 months worth of tips back in August of 2006. I paid $250 for it and I can't believe how the price and style has changed. I love this new model since it's perfect for running and I wont have to have the tan-line from my arm band that I have to carry my current iPod in. Not to mention I can get it in pink. Or Graphite since it looks gold and it's fantastic.
$695.00 Black Pump - Christian Louboutin
Since it seems that in any given month I am dressing up in dresses and heels 4-5 times I want timeless staples. And that would be some black leather pumps. I love shoes and when I'm in a dress I prefer heels. Since chances are more likely I'll never be able to afford a pair of these I could settle for the below example.
$89.95 Black Pump - Steve Madden
Cheaper, not as luxurious and comfortable and beautiful, but $600 cheaper, so who cares? Me. Oh well, I can dream.
$795.00 Red Pump - Christian Louboutin
I really like paring red shoes with black and white outfits. I have quite a few black and white outfits. I don't know why the red is more than the black, but if I was ever able to afford the black I'm sure I'd be in the position to afford the red. And they would last me forever - my entire life and then some, right? Would that justify it?
$89.95 Red Pump - Steve Madden
And here is the much, much cheaper (but not as beautiful, comfortable and not even real leather) option. Right now I am using an open toed pump that I bought for $10 back in September of 2006. They have a few scuff marks on the sides but otherwise are alright. Oh, they are horribly uncomfortable. I'm ready for an upgrade. How about a $785 upgrade? I know, stop rolling your eyes. Or maybe you're nodding your head and drooling?
$89.95 Nude Pump - Steve Madden
Nude is supposed to go with everything and there are a few things I have that I don't exactly have the perfect shoe for. So, I'm on the market for a Nude Pump. And I really like the look of the hidden platform. Which most of these options have.
$580.00 Nude Pump - Brian Atwood
I had to. I believe I have a fetish with expensive beautiful shoes the same reason I have one with jeans. They are better made and are more comfortable. They also last longer - assuming you care for them properly. I don't have any of these expensive heels, though. I do have really nice jeans (although I am proud to say I have never paid full price for a pair) and can testify of their value.
So, I know I'm looking for regular timeless pumps, but this is beautiful and I think I'd do it instead of the others if it were ever an option. I think someday when we are ever somewhere where I can try a pair of Loutoutin's on, I will. And I'll blog about the experience. :)
$2,306.50 Canon 5D Mark II
I don't even think I have to explain this. But the picture taking quality, the options, the high ISO - everything about it makes it loads better than my scrony t1i. It's a purchase I hope to make in the next year - assuming I can save enough and book enough clients to make the money.
$1419.00 Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L
I want a wide angle lens. I wouldn't mind the fixed 35mm as I really love my fixed 50mm, but I want the zoom this provides. I've found that with taking pictures of kids you need to be able to be further away and at a moments notice catch an expression closer up. I would probably buy this before the camera body above - which would mean putting it off for longer than a year.
$179.00 Shoot Sac
Currently I'm using a bulky camera bag backpack thing that I have to take off my shoulder, unzip and pull out the lens I want to use, then change the lenses, put the other back in, zip it back up and put it back on my back. Time consuming and inconvenient and costly since I lose shooting opportunities. I have heard good reviews about this bag -so it's on my list of priorities.
$395.00 Black Studded Boot
I'm looking for a black boot with around a 3 inch heel to wear with jeans. I've been on the look out for a while now, but haven't found anything that strikes my fancy enough. These are beautiful and would work great. But if I had $400 to spend on shoes, I'm not totally sure if I would choose these. Although, I would use them more than any of the pumps that are on my list.
I love love love to read. The library here is found wanting and I can't afford the amount of books I want to read. Since books only cost a few bucks with the kindle I wouldn't feel so bad buying a book that I'm not exactly sure I'd want to read again. Since I re-read books every few years I don't mind buying a book if it's good enough to re-read. The only problem is buying one that I don't want to have in my library and not being able to return it. It's a waste. With this it would be alright.
And this, ladies and gentlemen concludes my current lust list. What is on yours?
