currently coveting: august edition.

All items are linked here.

At the beginning of the school year, if you're anything like me, you require chic yet functional school supplies to help you through long days of high school. (sophomore year in my case!) With this edition of "Currently Coveting" – a feature which has sadly been neglected over the past few months – I chose items that embody fashion in its best form and can also make their way into the crisp pages of Teen Vogue. School in Singapore is in full swing for many of us but its not too late to slip these new pieces into your closets for the remainder of the year. My checklist for the year includes the usual necessities; a backpack, pencil case and notebook make an appearance above. At the same time though, I am coveting a quirky, patterned iPhone case, mini tubes of sparkling lip-gloss (ideal for a quick touch-up between classes) and a pair of wedges to accompany me to dinner and events on weekends. Read on to discover the brands who are fulfilling my wishlist with perfection.

+ All Saints is a brand I've loved ever since I spent hours in their store in Selfridges, London. Their aesthetic could be described as a fusion between  rocker-chic and cutting-edge elegance. This top is a quintessential All Saints item, in a unique shade of plum.
+ I can be easily convinced into purchasing any new lip products, mostly because I am a firm believer in minimal makeup and I am partial to lipglosses and lipsticks. Bobbi Brown is a favorite brand of mine, partly due to reading some incredibly inspiring quotes from Bobbi herself, regarding beauty and the makeup industry. The adorable, miniature tubes of lipgloss come in an array of rose-like tones, ranging from subtle to statement-worthy.
+ These wedges are any girl's dream and can be described in lengthy detail but there are only two words required: Steve Madden. Ultimately, my favorite shoe brand with the most fabulous selection.
+ Although most people opt for the classic lined notebook that their schools provide for them, it is much more exciting to scribble assignments and keep up with schoolwork when you have a diary as elegant as this one. Mulberry can do no wrong, and the brand's minimalistic, sleek approach to fashion is applicable to their effortlessly-gorgeous stationery.
+ This backpack intertwines all you need in a fashion item: a timeless print, a lovely color, and a brand worthy of the name. Modcloth's backpack is essential for the new school year and can add a pop of color to any monotonous school uniform.
+ Other items are an iridescent Forever New pencil case, Accessorize sterling silver ring, and an adorable Kate Spade iPhone case.

What do you think of these items? What are you coveting this August?
