I wwwant that!

When you’ve got lots of time to cruise the ‘net but only a little green, I wwwant that! Please join me for a world wide romp in inspiration and completely desirable products that I could (but shouldn’t) purchase.

Have I told you lately how much I love WHOLE CAKES?? It is for reasons like this that they are #1 in my baked goods list. That cake topper would look fricken precious (not in a good way) atop anything but a majestic cake. Darling Dexter knew awesome when she saw it and for that reason I am grateful. You too can own a cake topper! For only three easy payments of $13.33… (just visit togetherforever’s etsy shop.)

My life philosophy is that color matches color. Chris Benz apparently believes the same thing which is why his Spring 2010 collection is ah-MAZING. Of course the one and only  Oh Joy! spotted his work the fastest, bringing about what, I’m sure, is an internet flurry of interest in this designers work. See also: sparkles match sparkles. Oh my, that yellow dress makes me want to CRY it’s so cute.

These boots are a real life find. One day, on my way to work, I spotted a woman in the brown pair. The next day, almost the same place, I saw a completely different woman wearing the black! Obviously I was behind the two women and immediately was drawn to the back contrasting zipper. After that second spotting, I knew it was my job to figure out who makes those shoes. Turns out these suckers are from… are you ready?… Steve Madden! WTF? I was as surprised as you. Second of all, I was taken aback at the steep price: $199. For Steve Madden boots? And I wwwant them?? What’s the world coming to?!? Le sigh, you wwwant them too, don’t ya? Well you can get these Steve Madden Roady Boots in black and tan.

The Mr. has a serious addiction to his Vans. Even though he has flat feet too, he doesn’t mind his arches scraping the pavement (ew?) in his slip-ons. I can’t do it. It totally bugs me! I didn’t think there would ever be a Vans shoe that would entice me. Then one day lil ole me was meekly scanning my google reader when I saw that Enchanted Royals had posted this show stopping pair of  Sophie Vans. Yes please! I’ll take two pairs. Retro refashioned. Love it.

I enjoy popping over to Mint to see what’s cooking. Recently, she posted a project that I adore. The Smock Shop exists to help starting artists make ends meet. Andrea Zittel created a simple smock pattern that artists have made into their own unique visions. All completely and utterly wwwantable! Head over to the site to check out the many variations.

I don’t have much to say about these dip-dyed curtains from Remodelista except that I find them mesmerizing. I think it’s the dark blue that really draws the eye. Or maybe the fact that our bedroom curtains are that exact shade without the white top. Either way, I love these curtains, totally wwwant them and think that they don’t belong in any room with a bed (where, clearly, you’d be wakened the second the sun peeped out.)

I wwwant that!

Welcome to this week’s edition of I wwwant that! It’s the one place in which I’ll allow myself to dream of spending a whole savings account on covetable web items. Let’s begin…

The first person responsible for my itchy Add to Basket trigger finger is Joy from Oh Joy! Besides Joy being her first name, her blog was more aptly named for the Oh Joy! reaction evoked when browsing her eye-candy posts. Oh, excuse me. Did that come off too ass-kissy? Add her blog to your RSS and see how long you last with that hard heart of yours. Anyways, she posted some lovely geometric-inspired jewelery that’s not ONLY pretty shapes but is made from laser cut wood. The Harbinger Co. is based out of San Francisco and badass enough to use LASERS on a regular basis. The pieces range from $12-$60 and won’t break the band but these are HARD TIMES people!

A few times over the last couple days, an annoying thing happened. The interweb (like Poppytalk and Apartment Therapy) was enthralled with a new textured Anthropologie couch. Yeah, ok. Nice couch, like I give a shit. Ay but there’s the rub. In said photograph of this couch lays an AMAZING RUG. The bright colors! The nubby bobbles of pompom! The randomized spots of color! I was smitten. The first time I saw it, I thought it wasn’t for sale but by the second time, I was compelled to see if it was something Anthropologie carrier. And they are. Expensively. Their Felt Pixel Rug will set you back $600-$900. Plus shipping. Crying myself a river.

Let’s finish with another website discovery, like last week‘s Jonathan Adler. This one is compliments of Kate from For You, For Me, who tweeted about the recent arrival of some vintage locker baskets from the people of Three Potato Four. “Hmm, what is that?!?” I asked myself. “I’M on the hunt for lockers, maybe they’ll have something cool for our linens!” No dice. HOWEVER, Three Potato Four is a webstore that carries vintage stuff that kicks butt. Go browse already!
