I discovered this Android app (also on the iPhone) that drives me to whimsical highs during lulls between work and play. It’s called Fancy. There’s really nothing of world importance in this one, except that it makes me discover some of the things I would love to own if money was no object. Well, some of the items are not really that expensive, but the ones I really fancy are the more steeply-priced ones. Here are some of them:
I’ve always had this interest in expensive watches. Call it a family habit, but ever since I bought my first bling of a watch (a Rolex), I almost always find ways to save money for a next one (I now have a Cartier, an Omega, a Breitling and a Technomarine on top of a few mid-range brands). The IWC Aquatime Chronograph Edition Galapagos Islands makes me salivate, not only because it’s a limited edition, but it would really look good on my wrist.
Unique accessories tickle me to no end. Aside from being quick subjects of conversation and attention, they give me some extra confidence to walk around. The Skeleton Hand Bracelet by Delfina Delettrez is a perfect example. Not that I will wear the same everyday, but it would surely make me stand out in a party. Don’t you agree? 😉
I’m a sucker for mid-rise boots, especially the ones that are impeccably-crafted and of excellent over-all workmanship. Wearing a pair adds a palpable air of dignity to my stride without fail. The Waxed Suede and Leather Boots by Maison Martin Margiela makes me drool just staring at the sleek curves and fine finish.
How I wish I gifted my late dog, Fletcher, with a modern pet daybed just like the one pictured above. It would surely make him feel like a diva! I always tend to spoil my canine ally, reason why it’s taking me too long to get a new pooch. Once I settle on one, I’d ask my furniture-manufacturing friend to reproduce something like this opulent-looking resting place. So cute! 😀
I may not be big on beaches, but show me the way to a hidden treasure of an alcove or trench and you got me hooked. To Sua Ocean Trench in Samoa is one such breathtaking spot I would love to spend a day or two basking in the cool water of this enclosed paradise. Who wouldn’t? Of course, it will send my heart a-fluttering if a special friend decides to come with me. 😉
Don’t get me wrong. I don’t wear nail polish, be it clear or colored. But seeing someone else’s nails painted with the Deborah Lippmann Flat Top Matte Topcoat is just pure eye candy.
I actually have more items on my list, but I decided to group them together in a second part so you can focus on the ones above first.
