i have been amazing myself lately with the amount of restraint i've been having regards to the sales that are on now. i'm probably not helping the economy, but i am helping my credit card debt.
i am starting to think a bit about things i may need come spring. its hard not to when all the new spring stuff is showing up online. but i am also thinking of things that are season-less. as in weather and not 'fashion seasons'. or maybe both. but in the back of my mind, i know that every single time summer rolls around i am clueless about what to wear. at least there is plenty of time to figure that out between now and june.
for the now, i still need a nice waistcoat, which can be worn easily fall through winter and spring. black. slightly long- definitely not cropped or 'fitted' in any regard. i really really wish i bought this viridi-anne one i saw at komakino on sale, but it was before our trip to japan, so i thought i might find it there. nope. that always happens to me, but things that i covet for a long period of time often wind up in my wardrobe eventually. i will wait it out to see if i can find it again, or find another equally perfect waistcoat.
i really like this complex geometries dress from oak. i think its basically the same shape as the top i got from them in the summer, but dress length and wool jersey instead of cotton jersey. i realized i need more dresses in my wardrobe, and to figure out what shoes i can wear with dresses. it's often too easy to just throw on a pair of jeans.
i wouldn't mind having one of these as well. i won't lie- i would round off the point on the hood though.
i also need one or two 'fancy' tops. i am considering this one from k karl lagerfeld but i'm not sure if the ruffles are too ruffly or just ruffly enough. opinions?
also really trying not to buy these, and also trying to resist justifying pre-ordering the spring lace-up sandals
i am also in desperate need of a hair cut. i think i want a big change. i just wish my hair wasn't so curly.
anyway, we bring home our new family member tonight, so be prepared for a lot of puppy talk.
