What I Want Wednesday 12.19.12


What I Want Wednesday
(WIWW) is a weekly feature on Bergdorf’s & Bow Ties. It is a collection of carefully curated pieces, falling together to create the most flawless of all wardrobes…

This weeks feature piece was inspired by none other than Blair Waldorf herself. After seeing Blair in the season finale in her stunning powder-blue wedding dress, I just had to know who the designer was.

Sleeveless Crepe Flounce Dress $2,650

Elie Saab has a great line of of couture, some more casual and some definitely more formal. I couldn’t take my eyes off of this purple, lace dress, it’s stunning, it’s cute, and it’s fun. Made in Italy, with geometric cutouts and lace filing the gaps this dress is flirty and the purple add a pop of colour. I’m loving the belt and strappy-sandals that is paired with it, it’s a perfect date-night dress.

This purple piece is definitely what I’m wanting this Wednesday, check back next week for more of what I’m loving!

What I Want Wednesday 12.12.12.

What I Want Wednesday (WIWW) is a weekly feature on Bergdorf’s and Bow Ties. It is a collection of carefully curated pieces, falling together to create the most flawless of all wardrobes.

This week’s piece is a beautiful array of floral and pastels. The high cut neckline makes it professional enough to wear to work and classy enough to show off on a date.

Lela RoseFloral-Jacquard Sheath Dress $1,395

While some may say it is more of a summer time piece I think with the right pair of tights, blazer and pumps it could definitely be worn year-round. The silk in the dress falls wonderfully on almost anyone and the darker floral embellishment on the dress draws attention to the waist by creating the illusion of a sash.

This floral piece is definitely what I’m wanting this Wednesday, check back next week for more of what I’m loving.

Burberry Womens Trench

I fell in love with Burberry Trench coats a few years ago. When I was in San Francisco this past spring I tried one on and it only confirmed the love I had for this particular coat.

Burberry  J9

Buckingham Cat Trenchcoat $1,095     Cotton Satin Trenchcoat $2,095

Burberry offers a variety of coats, all of them stunning. I’m more of a classic gal so I tend to lean towards coats like the Cotton Satin Trench.

Burberry  J91

Single Breasted Poplin Trench $1,195       Lace Trench $1,116    

There are more casual coats, and more dressy coats, something for every occasion. Whether it’s the ballet, a dinner out with friends or you’re leaving work after  along day at the office, your Burberry Trench will always make you look and feel stylish.

The weeks piece is the Chloe Crepe Dress With Necktie Pin ($2195). It is simple and elegant and something that Kate Middleton would wear. The Necktie Pin creates a stunning accent to the classy gown. Perfect for those cool winter evenings, and can definitely been accented by a pair of shoes. No need for a necklace though, you don’t want too much attention to the neck. This simple piece is definitely what I’m wanting this Wednesday.

This piece comes from the closet of Piazza Sempione Poppy. An elegant combination of fuchsia and white this piece will stand out at any soirée. Pairing it with a suede shoe is the way to go; you want to draw attention to the dress, not your shoes. Pull your hair up of your face to show off your collar bones and pair it with a set of dangling earring. This is definitely what I want this Wednesday.

Kate Spade

I like to think that Kate and I are best friends. I fall in love with each bag she creates and in return, she produces more beautiful bags for me to fawn over. Really, it’s love.

I love Kate Spade bags and while they are on the lower end of the designer items… they’re no Coach.

One of the great things about Kate Spade is that the bags are simple. They don’t overwhelm you with pattern’s and they use color to make them stand out.

Charlotte Street Sylvie $398                      Boutique Stripe Harmony $328

Bright bags don’t have any other patterns on them, which I think is great. Black and white bags tend to have a bit more detailing.

Belleville Plaid Quinn $258  $129                          Post Street Little Adair $298
They don’t have a ton of sales but I’ve had my eye on this Quinn bag for a while… I would order it, except for the shipping cost to where I live. These bags are definitely on my wish list this holiday season.
Oh, Kate.
