[Wishlist Wednesday] The BIG List

Usually on Wishlist Wednesday I post my favorite picks from Anthro, J.Crew, and Piperlime and stick to apparel and accessories... today I'm going to share my big time wishlist.  The things I'm saving for and really really want to get..... Most of these are random and some I'm not even sure the exact item I want, but these are my 'bigger' needs that need to be filled (ha. ha.).....

Canon Digital Rebel XSi 12.2 MP Digital SLR Camera  - no explanation necessary.
Canon Digital Rebel XSi 12.2 MP Digital SLR Camera (with lense) - Amazon $729 

A Nixon Watch - I've been obsessed with Nixon watches for yearrrsssss.  Maybe its the surfer girl in me (I grew up in a beach town), but I've always wanted one... and price wise they aren't too damaging either.
Nixon 'The Monopoly' Watch - Revolve $200

Nixon 'The Time Teller' Watch - Tilly's $149.99

Nixon 'The Small Player' - Swell $225

Wallet - I'm in MAJOR need of a zip around wallet.  I need more card slots and my current check book Coach wallet is just getting on my nerves.  It's held up great the past 4 years or so, but I'm way over the signature print and looking for something new and sleeker (and not so bulky)...

ChloƩ 'Marcie - Long' Zip Around Wallet - Nordstrom $495
MARC JACOBS 'Quilting - Large' Zip Around Wallet - Nordstrom $425

Marc by Marc Jacobs Totally Turnlock Large Zip-Around Wallet - Endless $228
Tory Burch Leather Continental Zip Wallet - Bergdorf Goodman $195
Julia Leather Accordion Zip - Coach $208

Bedding - This one is difficult because I love our current duvet (even though it's totally plain), but by allowing the little Peanut to sleep on the bed we need to stick to a color that won't easily show her fur (she's a shedder).  I'm still looking for the perfect set to use as back up.  Stinks because my favorite sets are usually white.  (check out our master bedroom makeover here)

Chambray Duvet Cover - Urban Outfitter $99
(this looks similar to our current west elm duvet, not sure the color in real life though)
Bar III Bedding, Garment Wash Grey Full/Queen Duvet Cover - Macy's $170
(again, similar to our current, but not as slate)

Zigzag Duvet Cover – Urban Outfitters $79
(LOVE this one, but would be a nightmare with Penny) 
Woodland Organic Duvet Cover & Sham - Pottery Barn $79
(busy and bright, but would be a nice change to the current monochromatic thing we go going on)
Paisley Suite Navy Duvet - Ralph Lauren $172.99
(Husband isn't crazy about paisley, but its a step up from girly floral)

Yogitoes Mat -  A yoga must that I've put off buying wayyyy too long.  I hate that they cost approximately $50+ for a towel I'll be sweating all over, but I know its a must have.  Skid resistant and super absorbent.

Yogitoes Skidless Mat - Amazon $45-64

What random items are you currently saving up for??


  1. The yogitoes is well worth it! Couldn't get through my hot yoga class without one!

  2. Although I want to be saving for a nice pair of Miu Miu shoes and a fall wardrobe, I'm trying to save for a wedding.

    I have a Nixon watch in gold and absolutely love it. Unfortunately, it needs a new battery and is out of commission, but it's by far one of my favorite purchases.

    I've been on the hunt for a new duvet cover as well, but it's hard to figure out what would match a pink zebra print sheet set, lol.

  3. Love the tortoise Nixon watch! Great for year round!!! And can be worn with siver or gold jewelry! I am obsessed with tortoise glasses and sunglasses lately too!

    Have a question: I know you live in the Northeast...I am going to NY City for the first time ever in the end of is the weather usually around that time? I am trying to find a new jacket/fall coat and can't figure out what to get. I was thinking a lighter peacoat? TIA!

  4. LOVE your list! That tortuoise watch is adorable and I am crushing hard on that Chevron Striped duvet cover! I am in need of a new "good" camera as well...that should be #1 on my list! I actually just replaced my wallet and got a zip all around style as well...but I went cheap and got a cute yellow one from Fossil. It'll have to work for now!

  5. Love that tortoise shell watch! Now you're making me want it!

  6. I like that zigzag duvet cover. I need to get a new one for myself too!


  7. Hi E! I got this kate spade wallet earlier this month during the extra 25% off sale. I'm totally digging it!,default,pd.html?dwvar_PWRU1872_color=763&start=106&cgid=sale. All they have left is yellow in this particular style but there are other color options in the "lacey" style.
    Stay cool in this awful heat!

  8. First, I Love the chevron comforter! And also...I would like to have the Canon...I mean, it's a necessity right? I just can't imagine justifying the cost...even as a blogger! Eek! Maybe in a year...we'll see how it all goes!

  9. Shaina - I ordered one right after I wrote this post! Can't wait to finally have one...been far too long.

    fshnonmymind - haha, a wedding will def put a dent in the shopping budget! Too funny about the pink zebra, maybe black and white damask?

    Nicole - Yeah, I guess I have a thing for tortoise too.. all my glasses and sunglasses or tortoise... mainly bc I think black frames look to harsh.

    Weather in October is definitely cool... I'd say like 50s or so, definitely a light weight jacket, or layers and nice cozy sweater. Some days are nicer, some are worse... just make to look at the forecast in advance. Have fun!

    Jenni - ahh, so upset the chevron duvet is only in stock in a twin! boo!

    karebear - haha, don't you love when that happens!

    Lynnette - I love Urban's bedding, definitely different from the BB&B/Macy's/PB stuff that most people get.

    Monica - cute wallet!

    Natasha - Haha, seriously... I'm trying to talk the husband into it as a treat/investment... maybe an anniversary gift to each other... (about to overshare, but I've alluded to this before here) We had decided we would get one for this summer because we were supposed to have a new family member arrive 2 wks ago... I still am rationalizing I don't 'need' a baby to have a nice camera, (though that was my original excuse) there are plenty of other things it'd be useful for and fun to play with :)

  10. I want a Canon too! I just recently broke my camera :( and nothing would make me happier than purchasing a new one.


  11. Love the list. I would recommend you go with the newer model of the Canon, the T1i. You could probably get a comparable deal as the Xsi. I recently tried using the Xsi and I really think the T1i is more user friendly.If you have camera questions, shoot me an email.

  12. Nice goods. I like the tortoise watch and chambray duvet, among other things. I haven't taken hot yoga yet if that's the one you're taking, but I hope to in the future.

  13. Carrie - breaking cameras is the worst! good luck with the hunt for a new one :)

    Rosa - I will def ask you some q's when the time comes to buy, thanks for the tips!

    Gigi - I used to take Bikram (hot yoga with the 108degree room), but now I'm taking Power Yoga (Baptiste vinyasa style)... the room is still in the 90s and since it's not as stationary, I sweat just the same!


I love hearing from my readers! Be sure to check back as I try to respond to all comments and questions here in the comment form :)
