FBFF: Holiday Wishlist

For this week’s Fashion Beauty Friend Friday, Katy Rose of Modly Chic wants to know what is on our holiday wish-list this year.

You may remember my previous fall wish-list (here), and I’ve actually managed to complete the majority of that wish-list. Recently I created another wish-list, the majority of which got completely filled (I managed to tick of corduroys, khakis, and the plaid jacket) on Black Friday.

So what have I been coveting recently?

Holiday Wishlist Part 1

1. Jeffrey Campbell Lita and Jeffery Campbell Nightwalk 

There was a time when I wouldn’t bat an eyelash over dropping $100 on shoes. However, that was a long time ago. I’ve gotten wary about purchases over $100, because I’ve become a cheapskate. However, I love the look of both the Lita and the Nightwalk. I keep telling myself when I save up the money I’ll buy a pair, but I keep forgetting and spending a little bit here and a little bit there…

2. Amrita Singh Jewelry 

If anyone makes a statement piece, it’s Amrita Singh. I need more statement pieces in my collection, and I love the majority of her jewelry which is all so gorgeous.

3. Classic Trench Coat 

This is the one item I have such difficulty hunting down. It’s hard to find a good trench coat, especially one that I find aesthetically pleasing (and in my price range). The one pictured? I love it! Problem: it’s Burberry, and therefore out of my price range.

4. Yellow Scarf 

I’m obsessed with yellow. It’s almost tragic that I don’t have a yellow scarf already.

5. Cardigans

My cardigan collection is a bit woeful. I’d love a couple adorable (long-sleeved) cardigans to round out my wardrobe, especially since some of my favorites have started to look a little bit worn…

6. Black Boots 

I need a pair I can walk in that will work for winter. I’ve got my cognac pair, but I’d like to add to my miniscule boot collection. Plus, black is just so versatile.

7. Grey Leopard Print

I lack in the animal print department. I tend to find a lot of it very… displeasing to the eye if it’s not done properly. I love grey leopard print though. I’d prefer it in a pair of jeans or a scarf.

8. Colored and Patterned Tights 

I own tights in blue, black, white, pink, and purple. I’d like to add some other colors in there. A red, yellow, green, and maybe some orange? Patterns (like polka dots) would not be amiss either!

9. Nail polish  

I do my nails at least once a week. I’m always adding to my polish collection! I’d love to have more than just black and white stamping polishes. A splurge in the nail polish area might not be a bad idea either.

Lastly, these have been in my “saved” area of my Amazon.com cart for awhile. Hopefully I’ll pick them up sometime in the next year or so…


10. Harry Potter: The Complete 8-Film Collection

11. Memento


12. Style Yourself

13. Fashion 2.0: Blogging Your Way to The Front Row

14. You Say Tomato, I Say Shut Up: A Love Story

15. The Sociopath Next Door


Wishes for Fall

Fall Wishlist 2011

This season, I’m hoping to prepare for winter (instead of deluding myself and acting like summer hasn’t ended). These items represent what I’m looking for to round out my closet.

I’m definitely looking for colored denim, I’ve been coveting a pair for ages but haven’t found them for a decent price. However, it seems that retailers are starting to get the drift that colored denim is in and people want it. I’ve seen several pairs popping up here and there, so I’m sure I’ll manage to pick some up. (In addition to colored denim, I also want to grab a pair of white jeans since mine died a slow death last year).

This yellow pencil skirt is a stand-in for J. Crew’s. In their recent catalogue they featured a gorgeous bright yellow pencil skirt that I fell in love with. I’ll probably end up buying a cheaper version.

Sweaters are another thing I desperately need. The vast majority of my wardrobe has no sleeves or short sleeves. Mostly no sleeves. I would love to pick up several comfy looking knits.

This segues into outerwear. Both the coats that I’ve listed are two that I absolutely love. I’d love to snag both of them, actually. A good trench is very versatile and can last through the seasons, while the plaid coat is just too adorable.

Boots. They’re right up there with sweaters in the need category. I have 5 pairs of boots (2 ankle, 1 midcalf, 1 knee high, 1 thigh high). I could use some more practical pairs like the examples I’ve listed.

And can I just say I’ve been coveting Amrita Singh’s jewelry for awhile? Her statement pieces are utterly gorgeous. Hopefully this season I’ll pick up at least one of her items.

This weekend was super hectic for me, but posting will resume as normal tomorrow.

Goals & New Camera

My goals for my wardrobe this summer are to:

1) organize it! Right now my closet is a mess and I can’t find anything for the outfits I work on making.

2) Go through and throw out things that I will never wear again (it shrunk in the wash, etc) or that are completely worn out.

I also want to buy:

a) a pair of knee-high brown gladiator sandals

b) a pair of harem pants

c) colored trousers

d) shoes that are not black

e) something designer (Alexander Mcqueen, can I find you at a bargain?)

f) more jewelry. Looking at chunky.

e) shorts. I think I own one pair? Maybe two?

g) more blouses/nice tops. I’m graduating from college, not high school. I should have something besides t-shirts in my wardrobe.

Kinda like these…

I’ve also acquired a new camera for my graduation gift (my parents let me have it early!), so the picture quality on here is going to be 110% better than it was before.
