desire + acquire
desire: trench // bracelet // pashli bag // shoes
acquire: coat // necklace // earrings // scarf // top // clutch // shoes

Last week Pantone announced the 2013 Color of the Year is Emerald, which I am very excited about {especially after Tangerine Tango bleh}. Obviously it would be pretty easy to find some seriously gorgeous items to bring a little emerald into my wardrobe, ya know if I had an unlimited budget. I think it's clear that is not the case, so I've tracked down some of the cutest & wizard of oz-iest emerald green pieces I could find.

Just for a little perspective here's the total purchase price for each side of the board:

Desire - 
$36,819 {nope, not a typo}
Acquire - $361 {for all of it!}

How 'bout them apples?

Now head out & scoop up some emerald!


  1. I'm loving green so much right now!

  2. I love this take on a splurge v. steal post! I do a real v. steal on my blog but it's only one item. You put a lot of time in this! I love emerald too, thanks for sharing!

  3. I think I actually love most of the Acquire pieces more, so that works out! :) Great picks, just adore those suede flats!
    xx, Emily

  4. Your desire side is just plain not fair. I'll have to find that spare $40k I have lying around.

    Great post!
