Wish List Update
It’s just at the half point of January and I’ve two things I want to add to my Wish List already!
Now, I should add, that doesn’t mean I will definitely purchase them.
It just means I’ll enjoy musing over whether I want to acquire these items, or not. And, perhaps eventually will. We’ll see.
So, there’s two items I’m adding and both are related to Alexander McQueen.
He was a British fashion designer and you may or may not be familiar with him. Just in case, here’s a little 411.
Lee Alexander McQueen, CBE was an English fashion designer and couturier. From 1996 to 2001, he worked as chief designer at Givenchy. He also founded his own label, Alexander McQueen.
He was innovative, bold and a non conformist and I loved that about him. He did things his own way and was extremely well loved.
From some of his Tweets he seemed deep, thoughtful and sometimes melancholy. The myth of the tortured creative soul, is perhaps not a myth.
He committed suicide at age age 40, just days after his mother beloved Joyce’s death.
Only three years previously his very close friend, a well known English style guru, Isabella “Issie” Blow killed herself.
She’s famously attributed with having helped Alexander become a star.
Alexander McQueen Book
The first item I want to muse over is his book, Savage Beauty. It’s a beautiful coffee table book and one of the most highly rated coffee table fashion books on Amazon.
If I can find it at the library, I’ll review it there and decide if I want to purchase it.
Reason being, I’m at a point in my life where I want to divest of things vs just simply adding them. I don’t want this to be one more thing to move around and dust, just for the sake of it.
But if I really, really love it, I will purchase it and ditch something else to make space for it.
Alexander McQueen Belt
Gucci belts seem to be the “in” thing these days for fashion bloggers and I do like them.
However, if I’m going to invest in a belt to add to my closet, I’d love something a little bit more unique and elusive.
So the second thing I’m adding to my Wish List is one of his belts. I think I’d really love one with his infamous skull buckle. However, I also like the ones where the buckles are his initials.
Neither of these will be easy to find but I’m in no particular rush.
I think I would like to enjoy his book and learning more about him and then making the right choice of belt for me. Assuming I can find it!
It’s a new era in fashion – there are no rules. It’s all about the individual and personal style, wearing high-end, low-end, classic labels, and up-and-coming designers all together.

I love this quote, as someone who loves luxury from Chanel (preferably vintage) to Target finds!
Anyhoo, that’s my latest Wish List update and I’m sure there will be more.
Whatever I add to, or take off this list, I’ll keep you posted.
