Eternal Essentials

Hello ladies, 
Flora's love of Hermes riding boots got me thinking about other timeless wardrobe staples I hope to someday add to my wardrobe.  So, to coincide with my impending unemployment, I have composed a list of things I would gladly blow my money on.  Here's how I see it, unpaid interning and a dwindling savings account are temporary, but Chanel, Cartier and Hermes are forever...  

Chanel 2.55
We all know my fondness for all things Chanel, but the 2.55 is truly at the top of my list.  One of my favorite features of the bag?  The front pocket on the flap where Chanel was rumored to have stored love letters in her original bag.  Romantique!  

Christian Louboutin Platform Pump 
A work of art!  Everything about this shoe is just stunning!  

Cartier Tank Watch
No diamonds, no sparkle... The epitome of style and taste!

Hermes Birkin Bag
I am still not 100% sold on the Birkin, but this list of timeless fashion classics would be incomplete without the legendary Birkin.  

Burberry Trench Coat
Not only is it classic, steeped in history, but who can resist the iconic plaid lining?   You know Flora and I share an obsession for the Burberry trench. 

I'm off to dream of a world where my closet is stocked with all these goodies... 

Bonne nuit!  

bisous, Ophelia


  1. perfect list. My goal once I get my dream job is to own a Burberry trench. It's so classic.

  2. Without a doubt, your list of essentials are so classic, you couldn't possibly go wrong whats-so-ever! I recently got my burberry trench and my next goal is probably a Cartier watch too. The Birkin would be a nice dream but it's just too far from becoming ever true for me.

  3. So jealous of your trench! Fingers crossed Nicole Leigh and I get our too! haha! x Ophelia
