Is it just us, or has everyone been sipping a little more liberally lately? Perhaps it’s the end of the summer and we’re all on vacation, or maybe it’s because the news keeps predicting the end of the world. Either way, we’ve recently noticed that as inhibitions drop, wallets begin to open—who among us has not made an alcohol-inspired purchase or two?
And so, in the spirit of Wine Wednesday, our editors have poured themselves a glass, and put together a wish list of what our tipsy selves would gladly purchase—price tag and practicality be damned. Alcohol often provides the confidence—or, more accurately, the shameless stupidity—to do what one would normally talk herself out of. For added measure, we’ve included a sober wish list as well. Because what goes up must come down, and it turns out shopping is a good hangover pick-me-up. See our editor’s picks, below.
