happy halloween // lust list

Happy Halloween!  We went to our friends' home last night and had a small dinner/pumpkin carving party.  Brandon and I worked on the same pumpkin... ours is second from the left.  We thought it was a cat, but once it was lit, we decided it was a raccoon.

I did want to share a few items on the lust list this week.  First (also mentioned on Monday's post) are the AG Adriano Goldschmied Legging Jeans.  
These are just fantastic.  Comfortable and flattering.  They don't look like leggings at all, but feel like them.  I've heard a lot of hype about these and am so glad I tried them out.  It has been over a year since I've been able to find a pair of jeans that look and feel this good.

I tried a generous sample of the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation and was hooked.  It has won a lot of awards, like Instyle's "Best Beauty Buy," and I can see how.  It's glowy, but stays put, even on my oily/combo skin.  It gives a flawless coverage, but doesn't feel heavy.  The color range is great, so surely everyone should be able to find their perfect match.  At $60 a bottle, I can't find it feasible to use every day, especially for work when I prefer to slap on a tinted moisturizer, but this would be an amazing treat to use for special occasions.  Really makes your skin look perfect.

These Jeffrey Campbell Soltaire Pumps are calling my name.  I own the peep toe version of these in black and get compliments every time I wear them.  They are comfortable too... and best part: they are velcro.  That's my kind of shoe.

Lastly, this tote by Cuyana is beautiful.  It can be monogrammed, which would be absolutely necessary in my opinion.  I love how simple, yet chic it is.  I'm also loving Cuyana's philosophy that one should buy fewer, nicer things.  I couldn't agree more.
