Lust List: Rose Gold & Real Gold !

by mehak on February 22, 2013

in Features, Lust list



Rose Gold is THE metal of choice for the past few seasons  and i still cant get enough of it. So this fortnights Lust List has me drooling over anything and everything that’s Gold with a Rosey touch. Im surprised why too many makeup giants haven’t cashed in on this apparently brand new color. I mean, i want a rose gold blush ! (Sleek has one but their delivery is totally untrustworthy). I also want a rose gold eyeshadow and a rose gold lip gloss  I mean seriously, have you thought of a color that can actually be worn everywhere on your face without you looking like a clown? Rose Gold Highlighter? Come to mommy!

1.Swarovski Sunglasses  : Tried these on in the Swarovski store and  i just fell in love with them. I don’t like overly blingy glasses that scream D&G with rhinestones on the side you know. Plus i like handles that are thin, the bulky ones don’t suit my face. What i loved about these was even though they were so simple, the irregular edging on the sunglasses made them so unique and edgy. Total Drool Material.

2.Polki Set With Uncut Emeralds: This-i am OBSESSED with. I want to get this at some time of my life for sure, and even though i own an uncut emeralds necklace, the colors on this are just totally yummyness. I researched this so much that i narrowed down the centre stone to a carved blue onyx. Now if only i can find someone who can make this. Oh right after i save up some cash, and find an occasion to wear this. (I just blew my entire year end bonus on a new diamond ring and earrings. Having complete post purchase dissonance)

3.BCBG Rose Gold  Heels: I know these are more like nude, but for the sake of this post they shall be classified as such. Love the cutwork and the detailing. In real life though i will walk two steps in this and then trip and fall on my face, but we can dream right. I love the shape of these too!

4.Tarun Tahiliani Anarkali: Sometimes Tarun’s Intricate Detailing is just totally mind boggling. This nude and rose gold anarkali is one such  example. I remember enquiring about a similar anarkali from Tarun once just for the heck of it, and i expected a price of about 2-3 lakhs, simply because it’s Tarun you know. Price i got- 7 lakhs Maam. Real Swarovski Crystals have been used in the work. Gulp. Thank you- i shall put that up in my lust list but not in my closet!

5.Marc Jacobs Rose Gold Watch : Im not a watch person, ill be honest iv lost more watches than i can count, but this one with its metallic rose gold strap and baby pink dial is just perfection. Grown up but girly at the same time .

Oh n btw.. dat butterfly ring from Swarovski you wrote bout ??? It was love at first sight for me ! Happily went looking for it in Swarovski ,Kolkata .. and the SA shooed me away saying they didn’t have them in my size.. for the matter, they didn’t have any single ring of my size ! :'( hmph. I have some very thin fingers … the “refer to kid’s section type” :X

Uncut Diamonds r so in these days n a must have… But spending 7lac for Anarkali is sheer stupidity.. No matter how much money you have… But I won’t mind this as a Gift:)

This list makes me want to splurge. BTW, The polki necklace that you’ve posted is by Neeti Singh. She makes wonderful jewelry, I happen to have her number just in case you want to have this made for your :D

Much love!


mehak February 27, 2013 at 1:43 pm

Ooh thanks ! How expensive is she? How much do you think this would be for?


Tanya March 3, 2013 at 3:09 pm

Her jewellery is a little steep, no clue about this piece though!
