We gals know that our wishlists can often stretch to epic proportions, and they’re often as fluid as a fast-flowing river, but there are some special items that will always be on our wishlist that we can never quite justify buying ourselves – gift giving occasions can be the perfect time to bring these items up, if we feel brave enough…remember: a pin up can dream!
One of the first things on my ‘things I can’t justify but would love to find under my tree’ list is the Gilda gown from Pinup Girl Clothing, at USD$190 (currently about £120) it’s definitely on the pricy side – not to mention I have absolutely nowhere I to wear it (unless doing the chores count!), but I’d still love to own one!
Burgundy red or olive green would be my colour choices, but there’s a black gown too; and if any occasion ever arises where I need a cocktail dress I’ll definitely be opting for the Gilda dress (oh, who am I kidding? We all know I’d choose the gown just because I can!).
Admittedly there’s only one left – and it’s in my size – but the price tag on the Elle robe from Kiss Me Deadly means that I’ve been loathe to splurge on it ever since I first laid my eyes on it primarily because I’d mostly just sit around the house in it.
I adore the colour, not to mention the fact that it’s got short sleeves – long sleeves can be the most annoying thing when you don’t want them, and I generally don’t want them when I’m trying to relax! I’d also love to swoosh about in this robe – I know it would make even the dullest, wettest, windiest January morning much more bearable!
I had to get rid of all but one item from my small corset collection but I’d love to have the Star Top to wear under it – or under any future corset I might own; I bet it’d also look especially stunning worn over a cone or bullet bra too.
The Lingerie Skirt looks like it would be the perfect accompaniment to the Star Top, and if I wanted to show myself off a little less I bet a brightly coloured slip would look amazing under it! With stretch-knit front & back panels, sheer side panels, and a fishtail hem it’s not only super-sultry it’s a super cute style too!
I also think both the top & skirt could be fun to play with in photoshoots.
They both come in pink (shown), red, and black, though my personal favourite is the pink – it’s cute enough for a girlie sleepover, but still sassy enough for a night at home with your someone special.
What about you – what’s on your wishlist that you just can’t quite justify? Are you dropping hints or, like me, do you hint for things that are seen as little more practical?
