Look of the Week: What Mom Wants


In honor of Mother’s Day, I’m shaking things up a bit. This may not be a complete look, per se – although with these gifts, toss me a pair jeans and a T-shirt and you won’t hear me complain! It’s more of a wish list – a dream wish list. Hey, I’m an accessories girl. I vie to shop at Target for clothes the rest of the year if I can get my hands on these key essentials! Nobody will really be looking at my dress anyway with all this high-style luxury hanging off of me. A mom can fantasize, can’t she?  From my kids, a kiss and cuddle that last for more than 5 seconds will do, but from the baby daddy – I did all the work in the breeding process so let’s show some gratitude!  =)

This quietly cool Hermès satchel is the ultimate carryall for the mom on the go: sleek, elegant, practical, and the perforated “H” isn’t too showy. I’ll take it in etoupe, please.  Hermès “Evelyne” Bag At Hermès for $2,625.

Even the most hands-on busy mom needs grown-up time. With a pin-thin 6″ heel and in all-over blonde python, this definitely isn’t for running around – or risking getting juice spilled on your precious snakeskin. Eternally stylish, this pump will take care of my date nights for as long as I live.  Yves Saint Laurent Python “Tribtoo” Pumps At Saks Fifth Avenue for $1,295.

I’ve got my diamond solitaire engagement ring, now it’s time to bling up the right hand. Classy and elegant and stop-you-in-your-tracks sparkly. Need I say more?  Nessa “Bang Bang” Diamond White Gold Ring On Luisa Via Roma for $5,654.

Yes, I did get a Cartier Ballon for my 40th birthday, but keeping time is necessary for moms who have to keep track of school, classes, practices, playdates, doctor’s appointments…you get the drift; a mom needs a good watch! Not much better than a Patek Philippe set with 36 diamonds. Sure, the multi-figure price tag is no joke, but neither is your love for mom, right?  Patek Philippe Twenty~4 “4910/10A” Stainless Steel Watch Price upon request at Patek Philippe.
