Being wanty is different than being greedy because you can be totally wanty but it's all just for fun. For instance, you can be wanty about an electric bike or an overpriced accessory because you don't seriously think you need it and you truly aren't pining over it... you just like the idea of it and therefore, you are totally wanty! It's greedy to actually ask for it. But it's perfectly acceptable behaviour on a quiet weekend night over a pink martini to use your iPad to cruise various eCommerce sites and start to feel very wanty over some very desirable yet overpriced gift items. That is what capitalism is about.
'Tis the season, after all. So come on, be wanty with Saucy. You know you want to.
Generally anything from the Kate Spade website makes Saucy feel instantly wanty and therefore she only visits several times a week and never, ever after consuming alcohol or listening to Ann-Margaret music. If she were being wanty and silly she would put these glittery heels on her list. Truthfully, they would go with a couple of her Kate Spade dresses but she doesn't go to fancy places all that much so she'd end up doing the vacuuming in them.
But since even in her wanty-ness she likes to appear practical, she will accept sparkly Kate Keds:
At this point, Saucy would like to point out that the Kate Spade Holiday collection is adorable and Anna Kendrick in the short movie even more so. By the way, Saucy has a marabou pillbox hat that she found at the thrift store just like this one:
Can we all just agree it is a sad world that we live in that in no way could any of us ever venture out of the house wearing that dress, the glittery heels and the feathery hat? Life is so very unfair.
Instead of wearing the feathery hat, Saucy could wear a pair of wireless Beats by Dr Dre headphones and listen to some swinging tunes by the Rat Pack to make herself feel better about the times that she lives in. In exchange for living in modern day and having tablets and cell phones, Saucy would gladly travel back in time to wear structured dresses and pillbox hats every day.
If she does have to dwell solely in 2014, then she knows what to wear. She would be very wanty over the thought of the Shinola Birdy watch with the double leather strap. You might remember Shinola from an old "we're into it" post on this blog, Veto has one. Saucy has been pining for this ladies version because it's delicate and shiny and orange.
All Wanty Girls in the throes of their wanty-ness want Tiffany T bracelets!
All reasonable girls will settle for a Kate Spade mini bow bangle. All Wanty Girls that answer to the nickname Saucy will suggest that the bow bangle is often found at Winners.
All girls that go by the nickname Saucy will also suggest that the most wanty of all items on their wanty list can be found at Winners this very minute:
Even though Saucy didn't peep this electric bicycle with her own peepers, she will tell you that Loopy and Snookie saw it and texted her a picture and she was immediately in lurrve. Some days she wants to be out on her bicycle but her knees hurt so much to pedal so this Ecoped bike needs to go on the wanty list. Electric bicycles operate on the road just like a pedal bicycle - meaning you don't need a special license or insurance. You just need to follow the rules of the road and wear a super cute helmet.
Since Saucy has been looking for the perfect bike helmet, she may as well have one for when she rides her cruiser, Alice. This covered helmet by Yakkay looks like a bucket hat. You can switch covers, too. It's smart head protection for stylish cyclists. One day a ball cap, the next day a fedora.
|This one is very "Kate Spade", don't you think?|
It looks like the theme of Saucy's wanty list this year is mobility. Now she thinks she wants a pair of Tieks ballet flats. They're comfortable and foldable, so they fit in your handbag. They'd be awesome for traveling.
Folding ballet flats would fit perfectly into the "Sasha" Baby Bag by Kate Spade. Why do these wanty lists always come back to Kate Spade? Why does Saucy want what is essentially an overpriced diaper bag? Because a well-designed diaper bag is basically the equivalent of a carry-all tote bag. Water bottles can go where baby bottles go. The endless pockets for wipes and diapers can hold phones and chargers and grown up wipes. And let's all just talk about the name for a minute: THE SASHA BABY BAG. For those in the know, well... you know.
Saucy (aka Sasha Baby to family) is also very wanty over the Karl Lagerfeld limited edition Barbie. She can be as wanty as she likes, it's sold out and impossible to find.
By the way, did you see Saucy's Halloween costume this year?
So to summarize the wanty list for 2014, Saucy wants an unnecessary electric bicycle, a necessary bicycle helmet, extremely pricey headphones that won't fit under said helmet, three pairs of overpriced shoes, jewelry (umm HELLO IT'S CHRISTMAS), a diaper bag for the baby she does not have, and a super-chic Barbie doll.
She will also accept Taylor Swift tickets, a puppy and a reason to wear her feathery hat.
See how that works? It's not a need and it's beyond greed... it's just being downright wanty. Now it's your turn, tell everyone what you really feel wanty about this year. Go ahead and want big! It's only the Internet, people. You can want anything.
