THE DESIGNER STEAL V

When I stumble across gorgeous items such as today’s Designer Steal, I almost cry. Firstly it’s that awkward time of the month – nearly (but not quite) pay day – Secondly I’m trying to save to find a Maison for my Margiela & thirdly I don’t really need it, nor do I feel the need to own an iPad, but I just REALLY need it…

Here’s today’s beautifully made accessory from foraging The Unconventional website.

MY BLINDING MARC BY MARC JACOBS FLUORO LIME LOGO CARTRIDGE IPHONE CASE

If you follow me on twitter, then you may know of my never ending Apple iPhone 4S case drama. Firstly, I wanted a Marc By Marc Jacobs Logo Cartridge case, secondly, It had to be Fresh Green, Red or Crow Grey, and thirdly as I was TRYING not to spend so much money before I found a permanent job, I honestly didn’t want to spend ¬£35 on one!

ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS…IS…A MACBOOK PRO

*Sings* “Santa won’t you please, bring the one I really need, won’t you please bring a Macbook to Meeeeeeeeeee!!!”

I NEVER EVER regret spending a small fortune on my beloved iMac. It has been one of the best investments I’ve ever made, especially when it comes to my own design business. The resolution, the speed, the overall slickness has made working on projects for clients such as LeiVanKash Jewellery, Red Carpet Fashion Awards, Nokia and even this blog, both easier and satisying.

But there’s one tiny thing I knew I would have trouble with – Portability. I have family and friends scattered all over the place that I always visit, moreso with the events I’ve had to put up with this year. Unfortunately I’ve had to cut short many trips, simply because I have to rush back home to design a graphic for a client that would only take me around an hour, or gone for days without updating the blog simply because I don’t have access to my design programs to create headers graphics and resize images.

So a 13 inch Apple¬†Macbook Pro or Macbook Pro with Retina Display is something which I now need – but simply as a portable backup for my iMac (which I still adore in case it can read). Due to the fact i plan on using it as a backup item, the spec (while still impressive), need not be the highest hence why I’d pick the 13 inch over the 15 inch. The only downside to the new model is that it lacks a superdrive, while the older Macbook Pro model does have one and with a slightly smaller price tag. Then again how often do we use CD’s nowadays?

You can check out the full specs, models and accessories online on Apple’s website.

ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS…IS…A LANVIN IPHONE 4S CASE

Here’s something a little bit more realistic/affordable on my wish list – A Lanvin iPhone case, but in true greedy Christmas spirit I’ve chosen two!

It’s a sad fact that although I ADORE Lanvin, I don’t own anything from the iconic Parisian label *weeps*. It’s also a sad fact that my iPhone 4s has gone without a designer case for over a year, (it didn’t work out between Marc Jacobs and I). But both these quirky, unique and more importantly, affordable sketched covers have won me over with their signature and timeless Alber Elbaz style, that will be sure to “Keep Chirag Chic” whenever and wherever!

…timeless until I upgrade to the iPhone 5 (s?) next year that is…

Available online from Lanvin
