Hi, my name is Manuela Barreto and I’m an internet junkie. It’s official people…
Anyone who knows of a good internet junkie detox center, do share!
Let me just narrow it down to numbers…my bookmark page dedicated to all my favorite e-commerce sites and online boutiques has recently hit the 170 mark.
On a completely related note, my other bookmark page dubbed Covet-Couture, can you guess what this one is all about? Yup, it’s all the things I’m severely or just obsessed with that I want.need.must-have.NOW. Anyways, that has reached an exorbitant 433 desirable items. ???? I’m in serious, serious trouble here.
And to celebrate this uncontrollable urge to splurge and max out my credit cards…voilà my hunky-dory DIY collage of the new board members of the whims roster!
In no particular order- (I’ll be mix&matching as I go)
I have a weakness for anything stingray related, I just find it exoticly
(is that even a word?) hawt. This manta ray cuff is by enviromentally-friendly, L.A. based jewelry line, Alkemie. The contrasting sleeve blazer by Dressmonster has this passive-aggressive rock look that gives any outfit that much needed touch of casual decadence and looks good over just about anything. Sparkle, glitter, shine! Theyskens’ Theory scoop neck jacquard dress is one sexy darling you can easily slip into this holiday season! And because I’m obsessed with anything boyish, why not add this white oversized drop pocket boyfriend shirt from Asos to our repertoire, to be worn with shiny, leopard print trousers…and you’re now ready to walk-on-the-wild-side with this sexy pair of lime green python pumps. The sparkly Dannijo Jiselle bib necklace works perfectly with both our sexy Theyskens’ party frock and oversize shirt, plus, it’s simply a must-have. A Rachel Comey chunky, distressed knit over a pair of cuffed leather boyfriend trousers…and those chunky wooden wedges…yummm! Oh and let’s not forget another one of Alkemie’s gorgeous creations, the wrap around snake bracelet. Add to that a Surface to Air fringed, tie-dye scarf and you’re ready to conquer. Armed forces in Aztec territory? That’s what you get when you pair this uniformed inspired cargo dress with a sexy, tapered aztec mini from Torn by Ronny Kobo. And why not throw over that contrast wool leather parka…eclectic hotness.
What do you think? anything worth going for? (I know the answer to this question)
