On My Inspiration Board

Spring Wish List

After sifting through images of the SS15 collections, posts from last fall, and my inspiration board pics, I’ve put together a spring wish list.

The picture of the Hermès ankle-wrap sandals from a few seasons ago, coupled with the weak euro, motivated me to order a few pairs of custom K. Jacques sandals. I’ll post on them when they come in.

A sterling cuff tops my list and I love this one by Saint Laurent.

I have a pair of Valentino gladiator sandals on pre-order (these pictured are Chloé), but, every time I see them in a story, the back strip is not flat against the leg. TBC.

The Bottega Veneta collection has a number of pieces that I would wear forever. I’m going to try a few of the dresses and one of the jackets. There is also a suede jacket at Loewe that I have my eye on.

I love the saddle bag but, I only wear crossbody over a coat. Could work over a jacket.

The Céline barrette is going to be a tough find—only 4 are coming to the U.S. and I’ve been told that it’s very heavy. However, I’m inspired by the look and will try to find something similar.

Ta da!

  • As always, I love your picks. The Céline Barrette is high on my wishlist, the Saint Laurent cuff is perfect, and I need a pair of gladiator sandals (yes, the Valentinos would be great haha !)

  • Looking forward to seeing your K. Jacques sandals! I also love that Celine barette – thanks to Lisa for the alternative – ordered!

  • I like the style of the Chloe gladiators more than the Valentino pair, because of the wedge and general style. Not sure about the blush color though. The SL cuff is beautiful.

  • Preston ~
    I am trying to have a jeweler make a similar barrette ~ I’ll let you know how it turns out.

  • Love the Chloe gladiators because they have a wedge and they are also on my wish list. Hoping they come in tan or brown though.

  • I am thinking of some new K Jacques for a summer update – looking forward to seeing your post on your custom ones when they arrive.

  • Hi Preston, good luck with your lovely decision making. I really enjoyed this musing style post. Easy and fun to read, and thought provoking too.

  • Great inspiration board. K Jacques are so chic and timeless. Thanks to Lisa for link. The barrette will be a fun update.
