I'd Rather Be: In Willy Wonka's Factory

While a Personal Shopper can give you what you need for real life, I'd Rather Be sets you up for fantasy lives you didn't even know you had. Because sometimes a new shampoo isn't enough for a whole new you. (Want us to outfit your alter ego or your alternate reality? Just say the word!)

We're pretty sure Wonka never heard the terms "diet" or "portion control". Bikini season be damned - there's just too much delightful sugary goodness dancing in our heads to ignore.

  • Crushed velvet is a luxe look, but you're going to need an elastic waistband and something comfortable to snooze in if you're gorging yourself. A purple velour tracksuit ($90) works nicely. But how can you feel important and fancy wearing a sweatsuit?
  • By adding a top hat ($300), naturally.
  • If you get the munchies while on a walk, an edible sugar toadstool or six ($5) will get you through until you can have a more substantial treat - possibly something dipped in chocolate.
  • You wouldn't want to soil your ensemble by slurping out of a chocolate river, so a double chocolate fountain ($100) is a much more reasonable solution. (Two chocolates? Of course! When you live by the motto too much is never enough, in fact, two seems almost skimpy.)
  • When you need a little sweet to cut the rich, have a sip of cream soda ($32). Reminder: a lady always says "excuse me" after she belches.
  • Once you've exhausted the readily available sweet treats, it's time to create something new ($39) and further your candy empire.
  • Lighted lollipops ($30) make excellent decor, and are also a serious trip if you do any mind-altering drugs and want to look at the pretty colors.
  • Finally, scratch and sniff wallpaper ($100/sheet) is essential - especially if a craving strikes and sugar is out of reach.

    The total cost to be a Candy Connoisseur is $696 - and hours of your life spent at the gym, if you'd like to be able to fit through the door of that factory.
