I am being very good and am not splurging on every little item I see. It's hard because this season seems to have so many great styles and looks! However, true style comes from carefully selecting pieces for your collection and I don't NEED all of these items (or even find them to work with my lifestyle).
This top. I want to wear it with black very opaque tights and Engineer boots and lots of kohl liner to a very hip place. too bad I don't have Engineer boots, a hip place to go, or $270 to shell out on a shirt.
These boots. the closest I may get to the Frye “harness” boots I have coveted for decades but do not fit over my monster calves. I have ordered them and will provide a review once they arrive. Hooray for companies selling interesting and cool boots in larger sizes!
This bag. I have always loved Hayden-Harnett; each season they come out with the coolest shapes and colors. This is a nice change from my Banana Republic hobo in tan and is a nice color to go with all the black and jewel tones I often sport.
These pumps. Like I really need another pair of pumps, but I love this pattern and think they would be so lovely with a simple black dress… or even a great pair of jeans! I have found over time the animal-print heels I own end up being the most versatile shoes in my wardrobe. Thing is, I already have animal-print heels…
This coat. I always love red coats, this pintucking and the self-belt are so different and fun yet elegant. I doubt the cut would flatter my frame and I do have a lovely black wool single-breasted Calvin Klein that is the same length, fits great, and got for a song at TJ Maxx a few years ago.
This dress also. I love the little-girl cut, the pockets, the silk, the cool back… I love how it would look current with black tights and heels, but could also transition into warmer months.
