Coats and jackets have long been a favourite wardrobe item of mine. My collection is rather large and includes winter coats, faux fur, a Yukon parka, jean jackets, trenches, suede, and my leather jacket, which is one of my most prized possessions. If you challenged me to pick a favourite style I think I would have to go with moto jackets.
I don’t know if you guys are into this kind of post or not, but I always enjoy them on other blogs. So, without further ado, here is my Fall 2013 Wishlist.
Mom – feel free to check this list out for Christmas information;)
1. Wilfred by Aritzia Free Yasmin Dress
I’ve been obsessed with this dress for a while, ever since it started popping up on all of my favourite blogs. I love it for summer with just a pair of sandals, and also for fall and winter with tights, boots, and a chunky sweater.
2. Nine West Valcaria Boots
Riding boots aren’t going anywhere this season. I’ve got a busted zipper on my old pair, as well as general scuffs, scratches, and holes so I’m thinking it might be time for a new pair! In the winter I live in my boots.
3. A really simple, structured bag.
I just want something that’s a great goes-with-everything bag.
4. Anything and everything from the Body Shop’s Chocomania line because I am ADDICTED.
What’s on your wishlist?
*Disclaimer – no Mother, I haven’t been shopping. I’ve been wishing.
I am now happily ensconced in my new city (hello Vancouver), and have been exploring non stop.
Yesterday I attended my first warehouse sale. What an experience! Great clothes at 70% off retail. What’s a shopaholic to do? I waited in line for about half an hour before getting in. I checked my purse, and PURE MADNESS. Girls running from rack to rack grabbing whatever they could carry in their size. I attempted to be practical, and go from rack to rack looking at everything. I quickly got caught up in the frenzy though, and abandoned my sensible plan.
I emerged after about an hour, sweaty, dishevelled, and the owner of a few new great pieces.
