Welcome to Want/Need, a weekly roundup of the things our Deputy Editor, Emily Popp, is currently coveting. It might be a pair of pink leather loafers that make her feel like she’s got her s*#t together, or a pool float in the shape of an avocado (because she’s not over the novelty pool float trend). Or maybe it’s as random as, like, dryer sheets. Basically this is all the stuff she’s obsessed with. Poppy’s picks, if you will.
Rouje Ondine Dress
I’ve heard of the French brand Rouje, and seen it worn on Insta influencers, but I’ve never worn it myself. I’m such a sucker for gingham, and this dress is just made for me. The puffed sleeves! The white piping! Everything is working here.
Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum
My friend got me into Drunk Elephant years ago, and I’ve been hooked ever since. I’ve used a lot of their products (I swear by their Babyfacial), but recently I’ve been living for their Glycolic Night Serum. Oooo, it is so divine. It makes my skin level-10 luminous and clear by lifting my nasty dead skill cells from the surface and sloughing them away. I don’t have very oily skin, but the downside is that I am prone to dry skin, so sometimes “heavy duty” products can leave my skin looking like the Mojave Desert. I love Drunk Elephant’s night serum, because it doesn’t dry out my skin at all. I just slather some on before I go to bed, and I wake up feeling bright and right.
Kikkerland Pizza Night Light
This pizza night light is so ridiculous and I love it. It would make a great gag gift, but I also want one for myself. Night lights are practical, after all!
Cat Eyes Mini Plates (Set of 5)
Novelty cat items never cease to delight me. These itty bitty cat plates are perfect for serving apps at a party or just using as a catchall for your loose change, hair clips, what have you.
Zara Basic Skinny Jeans
I’ve actually never bought a pair of Zara jeans before, but these look really dang cute and they’re only…drumroll, please….$40.
Clare V. Green and White Lips Sweatshirt
I have a sweatshirt from Clare V. that I bought years ago that I still get so many compliments on whenever I wear it. It’s blue and says “free the sardines” in French. It’s quirky and cute and Clare V. and I like it! I’m currently coveting this green and white sweatshirt with red lips.
Haribo Gummi Candy Frogs
I weirdly had a craving for Haribo gummy frogs the other day. It struck me like a bolt of lightning. I was just going about my day, and suddenly I needed gummy frogs.
