Wish List Wednesday: Birthday Edition

I'll admit it, I'm totally embarrassed that my last post was last Wednesday. Moving on.

In my "we're-saving-money-to-buy-a-house-and-I-can't-overspend-on-anything" frenzy and realization over the past month or two, I have noticed that the more of a "spending restriction" I'm in, the longer my "I want" list grows. Coincidence? I think not. Does this make me spoiled? Maybe.

My birthday just happens to fall almost exactly one month before our anniversary, which can be a good thing or a bad thing, in my opinion. And, although buying a house, and going on our one-year anniversary getaway (here) rank higher than a new pair of shoes or jewelry, a girl can dream, right?

So, if you bump into B over the next two months, and he's looking for a few ideas for my birthday, feel free to send him on over here for some ridiculous great ideas!

I'm not sure this beautiful Michele watch needs much explanation. It's pretty. It's embellished with diamonds. Need I say more? Only problem I have is the price tag. Oof.

Oh, Tory Burch. Possibly my newest obsession. And, after a few good recs about her Thoras, and the ultimate purchasing of a pair? I think it's safe to say that a pair of Reva's will be joining my boot collection this fall. But, how do you choose? With all the pretty colors and patterns. Help?!

A few years back, I was lusting over the David Yurman Petite Albion ring, and got one from my wonderful parents for Christmas! What I've now noticed, is that I'm much more likely to sport bracelets on a daily basis than rings, because who can argue with weddings rings? So, if a bracelet like the one pictured above just happens to make its way into my jewelry box, you won't hear me complaining.

 And lastly? (Yes, there's more) I am definitely in the market for a new wallet. This may be the only thing on this list that I actually need. A bestie of mine has had a Michael Kors beauty for a few years, and I can't help but admire hers every time I see it. And, maybe if I'm lucky, err get a bunch of birthday money, I can pop on over to Nordy's or Neiman's Last Call and get a new Kors bag to go with! (Shhhh ..)
My apologies for drumming up your "need-to-shop" bugs. Clearly, I don't need any help in this area. 

Happy Wednesday!

Did you know they recently raised the price of those Yurman bracelets? Devastating, because there was definitely one on my birthday list until I realized that.

Um, i'm with myverbalvomit up there. I'm SO glad Husband gifted me with my Pearl/Pave DY when he did. That sucker is $1500 now!?! There's no shot in heck I'd have gotten one of those babies now! I'm with you on the Revas.. Another pair is definitely calling my name. Black? Brown?

I'm so ready for Fall. Sigh.

I must have lucked out too in the Yurman dept...I have the petite albion ring in prasiolite (college graduation present) and I still wear it every single day on my right ring finger. The bracelet has the citrine stone in it and that was a bday gift. Get B and your parents to pool in together on a gift...that's how I get most of my jewelry! :)

Also for wallets...Kate Spade has some great stuff in sale right now and won't break the bank!
