Currently Craving: Chav-tastic

*The perfect turban (both @ Babooshka Boutique)
*Blatant, gaudy name-brands (J'adore Dior tank @ Ebay)
*A neck full of chains (Bolera Body Chain @ Armor Jewelry, Chain fringe necklace @ Urban Outfitters)

I'm not craving particular things at the moment, but more ideas of perfect things, that likely don't exist in the real world. For example, the perfect turban. In my head, I envision it to be somewhat like Carrie Bradshaw's turban in SATC2, but less sparkly and vacation-y and more everyday wear. I have no idea what that would look like in front of me - still figuring that part out. But I do love all of the Babooshka Boutique turbans over at Etsy!

I'm also craving the perfect in-your-face, gaudy designer item. Like a J'adore Dior tank (also inspired from SATC2), or those Chanel CC sandals that came out a few years ago (as seen on Nitrolicious). Anything sort of chavvy like that, I'm loving right now! I've got to try to dig up my old Burberry hat from high school... I wish I was kidding!

And chains, an old classic - the more, the better! If I had $275 laying around, you better believe that I'd be wearing that Armor Bolera chain around - and probably building up some impressive back muscles by doing so! How heavy do you think that would be? Well, however heavy, it'd be worth it for sure!


PS: There is a winner for the SATC2 On Location Tours tickets! Congrats to Dee of All That Lace! Enjoy!!

while i'd absolutely adore any of those items, im not sure if you guys "over the pond" are using chavvy in its intended sense...
its more like trailertrash chic, but without the chic.

I have a turban, it is orange, vintage and for swimming. It’s pretty cool. Will I wear it? That is the question.

I SO want to rock a turban but fear I would border on the ridiculous. I'm no SJP. HA!
