Ahh, Christmastime. Is there a better time for a Lust List? It’s funny because I publish them, monthly, right at this very spot – yet still receive variations on socks/Lindor/Ferrero Rocher chocolates from my family every year. Italians. I’m grateful, it’s cool…*side eye* So let’s talk a little about this month’s list. First up, Dylan Lex. I’ve been following her on Instagram for a while now. Her style is actually incredible. She finally released her handmade super-statement necklaces that are the star of her Instagram account, and of course they sold out in, like, 5 seconds flat. As for the whole blue mohair coat situation – it spawned inside of me one day at (where other?) Zara. I saw this one on the rack and was extremely drawn to it. I picked it up to show my friend: “Hey, this is really cool eh!?” Her response: “Ew…no. Granny.” Slightly dejected, I decided the cut was probably a little too preppy for me, and that ultimately it maybe would be an impulse purchase. Shortly after, I spotted Vanessa Hong of the Haute Pursuit in a dusty blue Theory number. Ding Ding Ding!!! We have a winner. The sculpted lapel and belted waist added that little touch of masculine-chic that I needed.
