Splurges to save up for

I like these "modern classic loafers", almost look a bit like a boating shoe cross too. Definitely not paying $400 for a pair, though.

This is exactly the coffee table I've been looking for for ages, vintage-inspired and warm from being made of wood, but with a second shelf for additional storage. Skagen Coffee Table, Walnut at DWR $1260

Bryr clogs, tried them on at Renegade and talked to the creative directot Isobel Schofield. Base is narrow like Svens but she said could ask for them to be stretched a lot wider and send back if they're not wide enough. Base 37 is right length. New sandal styles coming in spring.

Moving Mountains – Suspension necklace $105 waxed cotton cord with solid brass bar

Triakis tetrahedron earrings $139

Love the roughness of these flat leather slingback sandals (Maison Martin Margiela). Full price 460, currently going for $322 but that still seems a ridiculous amount to pay for sandals...

Less save up for than find a similar piece--I like the look of this 22K rose gold-plated bumblebee necklace, but not so much at $230.

sven clog. A few stores in Brooklyn carry them. Also they have a service where you send them a tracing of your feet and they'll recommend styles/sizes for you! A solution to finding cute clogs for wide feet?

Happy bag from Dooney & Bourke, $198. Comes in many different and bright colors, including a coral melon, grass green, *tangerine*...would have to see in person to see whether too small, website lists as L9"xW3"xH8".

Coral Seaport watch from Kate Spade $150. For some reason doesn't seem to be listed on their site anymore...

Sophisticated hand-dyed ombre tights, $45 in an Etsy shop. Only fits up to size 8 though. I don't usually like ombre but I find these to be rather cool.

$35.99 heart-shaped umbrella. Cute but possibly also practical in helping keep your backside drier than with normal umbrellas.

Birdwood sandal by Wooten, an Australian-based bespoke shoe maker. Can't tell from their website what the general price range is even, but love this design--an alternative to ballet flats that I think would actually stay on my feet but aren't really just standard Mary-Janes.

MARC BY MARC JACOBS 'Petal to the Metal - Natasha' Flap Crossbody Bag $438. eBay shows this in a few different colors, a chestnut brown and a russet red. Would have to check it out in person first as I've found that MBMJ bags tend to be a bit heavy.

I really like this tucked buckle strap detail. $158 leather strap clutch from Ann Taylor. Don't know that I'd use a clutch that often is all.

Michael Kors Rose Golden Midsized Chronograph Watch. Should try this on in person somewhere, since I haven't worn a watch in years and have no idea whether the proportions would work. Love rose gold though. I can get this for $142.90 in my CitiCards Extra Cash center, 42% off retail price of 250.

Leather messenger bag that I wouldn't be too worried about beating up since that would enhance the look. However, $168 for a purse would probably still make me want to be cautious. Nice and roomy inside but not awkwardly long, best part is definitely that the strap isn't what holds it closed, it's a magnetic closure on the bottom.

Cheaper non-Hasbeens from the UK, £54.5 + £9 shipping. Not sure whether these are a passing fancy for me after seeing them on fashion blogs too often, plus also I really just never get into wearing heeled shoes that I can't walk at least 30 minutes in, but...
