The 5 Ultimate Designer Pieces I Have Always Wanted


Chanel Printed Flap Bag

I thought it might be nice to share with you some of the designer pieces that I have wanted for a really long time, but due to the price of them or exclusivity, I have not been able to obtain. There are 5 pieces here which have been on my designer wish list for ages and I couldn’t possibly put them in order, although maybe I could shoot a few to the top of the list, like the shoes, but they are very hard to get hold of. So here are my top 5 designer wish list items and I’d love to know what you think! What are some of yours that you would love to own but can’t?

First on the list (which isn’t in order) is a Chanel Flap Bag. I’ve always thought they were extremely classic and iconic and even though I’m not hugely fond of the classic black ones, when I saw this printed floral one for SS15, I completely fell in love with it. I’ve seen it in the boutique in London too and it is just as gorgeous in person as it looks in photos, if not more actually. With its hefty price tag though, I’m pretty sure it’s something I wont be able to get hold of unless I went down the designer second hand route! I’ve done that a few times before with some other pieces and it worked out great, so I am always keeping my eyes open for a great deal on it! Who knows!

Valentino Rockstud 100 Heels


Next on the list is my beloved Valentino Rockstud 100 Heels! I’ve wanted the matte black and nude combination for over a year now but they always seem to sell out really fast and they do cost a lot of money which makes it difficult too. I’m currently saving up for them, but I think they will need to be a purchase that I make in a boutique as online my size is always sold out in matte and only available in patent. I fell in love hard for these shoes though when I first saw them and I really can’t wait until I can finally own a pair in the future! There’s so many colour combinations (as you can see here), but I think the black and nude is most classic! Which do you like?

Celine Nano Luggage Tote


A Celine Nano Luggage Tote has been on my designer wish list for about 3 years! I haven’t ever gotten one for the obvious reason of it costing a huge amount of money, which I couldn’t justify or save enough for, but it doesn’t stop me loving them! Brooklyn Blonde just got this one in taupe, and I think the natural colour is the most beautiful. I did originally love the tri-colour options, but I think this one is so versatile, it will go with so many pieces! Maybe one day in the future a Celine Nano Luggage Tote might sit proudly on my shelf, or on my body I should say!

Chanel Canvas Espadrilles


Oh my beloved Chanel espadrilles in black and white canvas! I’ve been in love with these for about 2 years now! I remember back last April trying to get hold of them in the boutiques and not being able to as they only get limited stock and they sell out like hot cakes. I’ve still been trying to get hold of them weekly by calling the boutiques and scouting eBay, but they never have any in and online they go for such a crazy price (well over the RRP) which I can’t afford. I’m never giving up though and I truly hope that I will be able to find my pair one day! If any of you know of an authentic pair in a size 40 though, please let me know! I’d be forever grateful! I’m just in love with these so much!

Burberry Trench Coat


Finally, it’s a Burberry Trench Coat! This is newer to my wish list actually as I only really started liking them a huge amount at the beginning of this year. I’ve always thought they looked amazing on people (like this one from Wendy’s Look Book) and when I saw them in the boutique, I was even more besotted. I love the mid length version in the honey colour the most, as pictured, and despite the many colour combinations! Again though, these do cost a huge amount of money, so it’s not something I’m able to get anytime soon unless financial situations change. But it’s definitely on my designer wish list! Have any of you got a Burberry trench coat?

– So, that’s my 5 ultimate designer pieces that I would love to have. What are yours?

    This is probably my favourite post, dear! I’m a huge fan of Chanel & Burberry & always enjoy shopping at their boutiques! xoxo

      Me too! Well, I should say browsing their boutiques! Ha ha!

    Awesome post! My Rockstuds are some of my favourite pairs of shoes, I’d be so thrilled for you if you got your hands on a pair. The black and nude is great and the style isn’t going anywhere fast so I hope you find a pair. About the Burberry trenches- I LOVE them. I have quite a few coats from Burberry and I love them all, they are so luxurious and perfectly made, they’d look great with your soon-to-own Rockstuds hahaha!
    For me on my list there are obviously a few pairs of shoes that I always seem to try on but never get because I end up finding something else in a “limited” design or colour. A Chanel bag is on my list as well as a Mulberry bag. It is hard to find Mulberry in Canada but the Bayswater design has caught my eye. I’m off to NYC in a couple weeks so I’m hoping to take a better look at them when I’m on my trip.
    I think I could talk about this topic with you for hours so I think I’ll stop there and not bore you hahaha! Have a great Sunday!

      Ha ha! I’m glad you liked this post though! I know about the Rockstuds, I truly hope I can get them at some point as they are gorgeous! When I tried them on in Liberty a couple months ago I was obsessed with them! It made me love them more than when I hadn’t tried them! Fingers crossed I can save for them and get them at some point. They truly would go well with a Burberry trench coat! Maybe I might win the lottery!

    I love all these! Great items to aspire too. I would love a Chanel, something unusual, or Chloe! We’ll see!

      I like Chloe too! I have pre-owned vintage Chloe boots!

    The colours in that bag are gorgeous. I’ve actually got your site open both on my laptop and on my tab right now and I’m seeing rather different tones and shades in the pictures so I’m not sure which is the more accurate reflection of reality but, either way, it’s a very pretty bag. 🙂

      The one that’s most bright and colourful is best representation! I know the colours vary on different screens, but in person it’s bright 🙂

        Ah, sounds like my tab has it right then. More bright reds and oranges? My laptop has it more pastel pinks and browns. 🙂

        • Lorna
          June 8, 2015 / 8:52 pm

          Yes! Pink, red and orange is the main colour, mixed with yellow 🙂 There’s purple in there too though!

      It’s so pretty isn’t it?

    Ugh yes to all of these but then I think about how much I love traveling and how I can’t do both right now haha.

    It’s fun to see a designer item you really really really want but can’t have because you can’t find it in your size or can’t afford it. But deep down you know someday you will get it. Sometime are favorites are worth the wait.

    • Lorna
      June 9, 2015 / 12:12 pm

      They definitely are worth the wait! That’s how I see it! My Burberry scarf and my LV bag were definitely worth it, as was my Mulberry Mini Taylor in Deer Brown!

    The Chanel bag is also one of my wishlist bags, I want it so badly in black caviar! And the Valentino shoes are gorgeous! I saw them in Vienna at the Steffl store and just regret that I didn’t try them on, even though I cannot possibly afford them xD

        They’re my dream bag! I have an inspired one, and it’s pretty cute, but of course nothing compared xD

          Maybe one day we will both get our dream!
