high desires

Thursday, 23 June 2011


Imagine you were given a beautiful wad of money with the sole purpose of providing you with some desirable signature pieces... what would you choose? For me, it's always been the perfect leather jacket and more recently some Dr Martens, a statement cross necklace and a variety of band tees.

Clearly there's a rock 'n' roll theme going on here, which is probably something you've never associated me with. I'm actually really into that look. I guess it's sort of aspirational but I intend to incorporate this rock 'n' roll theme into my wardrobe more and more, and the above images leave me with plenty of inspiration.

It's my birthday next week... anyone fancy setting me off in the right direction with that perfect leather jacket? And what desired clothing item would you buy given the chance?

  1. Such an inspirational list sweet! Not really my typical style but I like it all the same (: I'm currently after a perfect fit Breton top, a sheer kimono jacket and some peg leg trousers!

  2. Happy Birthday for next week, have a good one. My dream item at the moment is actually a lens for my camera, how boring.

  3. Love all the pictures! They're very inspiring. I've been wanting a pair of Doc's as well. Honestly, I think you could find a leather jacket possibly anywhere! and if I was given the chance, I would buy a pair of Jeffrey Campbell Lita's or a Balenciaga bag :)

  4. I think I'll probably invest more in shoes/accessories than clothes though. Like you I would get a nice leather jacket. Never would have pegged you for a rock and roller.

    Happy birthday in advance. Hope you get that jacket. Just keep singing about it and you never know ;)

  11. Love how edgy these images are, I'd like a leather jacket myself but I'd never suit one. I get told I have that 'granny' edge to me.. haha! not wild at all.

  12. I'm mostly jealous that all these girls look super cool and I couldn't wear this much rock and roll without looking like a total idiot!

  15. I can totally relate! I love the rock n' roll look, but don't really have anything like it. I just received some money for graduation and the first thing I thought was, "time to buy a leather jacket, baby!" ;)

  16. Happy Birthday for next week! I love the rock 'n' roll vibe that's going on here, I'd definitely throw some cash at some Dr Martens and a REAL leather jacket (would make a nice change from my faux leather primark one!) x
