If you were stranded on a desert island, what's one thing you would take?
Here is my answer. And it's obviously not just one thing.
1. Colorful heels.
My closet is full of them, and they are always the first thing to catch my eye in a shoe department. They add so much to any muted outfit.
2. My laptop.
Also known as: My life. Working in the creative department at an advertising agency - you always need your laptop. And when I'm not on a shoot, I'm on my laptop. All the time.
My kin to Vogue. You will rarely find me without one of these two magazines in my bag. Beautiful layouts and fashion-forward styling, it really doesn't get any better than that.
4. Neon make-up bag.
I swear by Victoria's Secret make-up bags. I always buy a new one twice a year at the Semi-Annual sale. I love this one because it's compact, it fits in my bag, and it holds all my make-up.
5. Sequin Urchin Blazer.
The amount of sequin clothing I own is growing at an accelerated rate. I am in love with sequins, they make outfits so much fun.
6. My iPad.
When I'm on the run or away from my laptop, my iPad saves my life and keeps me in touch. I know what you're thinking and yes, I'm obsessed with my job.
7. Pink Pen.
This is my favorite pen, and the best part about it is that I get it for free! It's complimentary at my favorite boutique in Oklahoma City, On a Whim. So everytime I stop in to shop, I grab myself a new one. It's a win-win.
8. Small Notebooks.
You will literally never find me without these. In the pink book, I write down all of my fashion inspirations, outfits I see, things I want to buy, colors that go good together, etc. In the lime green book, I write down any creative ideas or inspirations I get for work. Ideas come to me in the most random instances, so these are absolute necessities for me.
9. Chanel Gloss.
More specifically Chanel Lévres Scintillantes Glossimer in Volupte. It's beautiful and looks perfect with my skin tone.
10. NARS Lipstick.
More specifically NARS Velvet Matte Lipstick Pencil in Red Square. They use this in J.Crew catalog shoots and it was literally on back order at Saks, Barneys, Bergdorf's, Neiman's and Nordstrom. I waited 2 months for it. Now it's back in stock everywhere and I am in love.
11. My iPhone.
I don't think this needs an explanation. Except for expressing how much I love J.Crew phone covers.
12. Essie Nail Polish.
Hands down my absolute favorite nail polish. I lean towards pinks and bright red/oranges, but I really love them all.
13. Extra Gum.
Silly, but I really am obsessed. If y'all saw how fast I go through this stuff - and how much I buy at one time, you'd be amazed. And just this flavor. Nothing else.
14. FASHION Coffee Table Book.
I have had this since I was 13. It is a constant source of inspiration to me. I can't even tell you how many times I have read it from front to back. It gives me ideas for dressing, styling and sketching.
15. Heart-shaped Sunglasses.
16. Chanel Bronzer.
I have professed my undying love for this product before. It is a lifesaver and I honestly go nowhere without it. Seriously. (See Post: Ten Things I'm Loving Right Now)
17. Tory Burch Clutch.
My adorable husband surprised me with a trip to the Tory Burch Store in Dallas on our one-year anniversary and this is what I left with. It's been glued to my side ever since.
