Truth is this is my way of making a wish list, hoping that one day I stumble upon them by chance. Like the lovely Ella’s Thrift Lists, I see this as my definitive list of my most sought after items. eBay on occasion has come to the rescue, but to be honest I could probably scour the Internet for days and find my most desired, if money was no object of course. But the pure thrill of hunting, waiting (in some cases years) makes for the biggest gain when one day they may just come into my life unexpected.
This list has become quite refined over the years, as you can imagine, these lot have certainly earned their place on the elusive list…
I have wanted to invest in a good quality Roberts Radio for a while now, and know one day I will do just that, and of course deciding on what colour may be a challenge in itself.
Mary Quant Crayons
This one came about in my late teens when I really got into fashion through my studies, the retro appeal and hippy nature of them hugely appealed to me, the chance to capture a piece of that 60s magic sure was ever desirable. The fact they come in their own electric yellow tin, completely seals it for me.
I have always had a bit of a fancy for one of these, I’ve come close to buying one in the past, but sadly they have always been damaged or broken. The kitsch factor alone has my heart racing and my love of all things cute makes this one all the more desirable.
Dr Marten Floral Boots
This quite simply is the case of the one that got away, because when I was younger I stumbled upon a pair of these in a charity shop, but I was literally moments too late, as a lady had already got them in her hand when I entered the shop. From that day on I have lived with that dreadful memory and can only learn from my mistake.
Chanel No. 5
I’ve flirted with fragrance since I was bought my first perfume aged thirteen (Anna Sui of course) and am forever on the quest to find my signature scent, but if there was ever a scent I long to wear it has to be Chanel no 5. But I’m kind of glad I haven’t ever stumbled upon this one before, for it would suit a much older me.
