Wish List: Vol 1 [General]

Last week, my boyfriend began his new job at Saks Fifth Avenue. (Did I neglect to mention that? Well, he now works in Saks Fifth Avenue's Corporate Office in Times Square!) So far, he absolutely LOVES it! And, he's good at it. I'm starting to think that I don't give him enough credit. After all, he has a serious, serious talent for what he does...

Anyways, probably my favorite part of his new job - in addition to his happiness, of course - is his discount!! I don't mean to be super Jewish right now (I AM A JEW, 100%, so I can say that!), but discounts are always nice. That holds true here as well, in a store where shoes cost upwards of thousands of dollars.

So, last Friday when we planned to go to Central Park, but soon realized that the humid Florida weather had followed us to the 'Big Apple', we headed over to 5th Ave. One reason why I absolutely ADORE my boyfriend is because unlike most guys, he loves to shop! In fact, it was his idea to spend the day exploring every floor of the giant Saks flagship. And so, we did.

Once arriving, I was in heaven. And that was only on the first floor- Cosmetics & Fragrances, AKA my future field! We continued up to middle and highest floors, and I realized that Louboutins are far less expensive than I imagined. I also realized that my boyfriend's heavy accent doesn't allow him to hear the difference between 'Louboutin' and 'Louis Vuitton'. SO CUTE!!!

As we finally arrive at the topic of this post, let me mention again that he will have access to thousands of designer pieces at steep discounts, and so, he told me to make a list of what I want [like any good boyfriend should]. So, here's to the first addition of my 'Wish List'!

[This is a short, general list of what first caught my eye, with no particular theme.]

Michael Kors

MICHAEL KORS Lace-Up One Piece Swim Suit ($252)

Louis Vuitton
LOUIS VUITTON Rhodes Open Toe Mule in Nubuck Calf Leather ($1,060)

Christian Louboutin

CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN Lavalierre Bow Pumps ($795)


FENDI Large Peekaboo Satchel ($2690)

So, what do you guys think?! Like my choices, or totally hate them? And, most importantly, what's on YOUR Wish List?


  1. the louboutins are gorgeous, what i wouldn't give for them! and your bf sounds adorable!

  2. OMG I just did a Saks OFF 5th post.. Congrats to him on his new job & I know exactly , which Saks Office he is at.. I am there at least once a month working & meeting, etc

    *OH & Yay!! for the discounts b/c the really do come in handy


  3. ahh my wishes are yours! i'd definitely take the louboutin's :) you have such great style- and a great boyfriend! mine always wants to wait outside while i shop hahah!

  4. Hi there

    I love the Laboutin Pnk Bows - and what a great find, a boyfiend who loves shopping. I can't complain, my husband is happy to sit outside reading a paper rather than come in and impatiently look at his watch every 10 seconds:):)

  5. Amazing!! Can we get a discount too. Discount for blog followers! HAHA jk jk. That's great that he works there. I've never really shopped in Saks...just walked through it to get to other stores in the mall here in Houston. Well I take that back. I shopped at the MAC Counter one time. Too expensive for me!!

    Live Life in Style

  6. Those Louboutin pumps are so divine! Great post, congratulations on his new job! Do you have Bloglovin? lots of love from your follower, Veena <3


  7. @Elizabeth Thanks so much!! I was in love with them as soon as I saw them. :)

  8. @Tammy Thank you!! I always forget you're in NYC haha. Yeah, I'm SO psyched for the discounts- but they're not good for LV :(

  9. @Hannah, Yeah he's totally awesome! Lol, I've never met another straight guy who like Gucci, but I'm not complaining... Lol! The Louboutins are incredible- they have SUCH a huge selection!

  10. @Olga Thanks!! As soon as I saw them, I knew I'd absolutely HAVE to blog about them!! They also come in black, but the pink is SO much prettier! Great that your husband won't bug you while you shop. :)

  11. @Shasie SAME!! My parents aren't really into material possessions, so I wasn't exactly raised to spend a lot on expensive brands. But now that I'm out on my own, I'm a complete brandwhore! ;)

    And I would totally give the discount if it was up to me!! Then again, that's an awesome contest idea...

  12. @VLM Thanks so much! They're totally incredible, right? And no, I actually don't have Bloglovin... I much prefer GFC!

  13. You are the luckiest girl in the world! Not only because you have a super awesome boyfriend (with my dream job, working at Saks, haha) but also because you won my Shabby Apple Dress giveaway!! Yay! Congrats, hon.

    I'm passing along your e-mail to Shabby Apple now and you should be hearing from them this week. xoxo


    ^(Totally just made my day!)

  15. Enjoy the discount! I'm sure you'll have fun picking out your favorites ; )

  16. @Marie Thanks!! And yeah, I absolutely will! ;)
