Wanting, Needing, Coveting, Saving up For
Wanting: I really want a vintage blazer and I love these ones from Nasty Gal Vintage, especially the Red Dior one, and the ivory one.
Needing: One of my fashion theories is that Wayfarers make any outfit look instantly cooler, and I decided that I really need a real pair, as I only have two pairs of "faybans". I really love the colored and two-tones ones and think they are a great way to add a pop of color to an outfit.
Coveting: Looking on net-a-porter in the past few weeks I keep noticing that my absolute favorite pieces from each week's "what's new" has been Matthew Williamson. I adore each piece, and think he brings a great sense of bohemian softness with a touch of surrearilsm. I love the little ballerinas on some of the dresses!
Saving up for: I decided that I really need a pair of designer shoes, and yoox.com is the way to do it. I love all these shoes (all from s/s o8) which are all fairly reasonable for designer shoes, but will hopefully purchase the Proenza Schouler sandals in the near future, as they are the cheapest ($128!) and the most practical for a high school student such as myself. I just need to finish saving up for car insurance, buy myself a new bag for school (speaking of which, I need to do SOON! I just need to decide where I want to get one from and how much I want to spend on one) and then these beauties will be mine. After that, I really hope to make the Margiela's mine. I have been so in love with overly chunky heel for a while now, and seeing them on Jane of Sea of Shoes, reinforced my idea that I must get them soon!
Hope everyone is enjoying the end of summer! I was bored last night and (in between rewatching Friends reruns online) created a whole list of things I can post about on the blog (which you'll be hearing about soon!)
p.s. Is everyone as excited as I am for all the fall tv shows to come back? I am a complete tv junkie (if you couldn't tell by my The Office quote box on the sidebar) and cannot wait for the likes of The Office, Gossip Girl, Ugly Betty, Lost, Grey's Anatomy, Desperate Housewives, Greek (its a guilty pleasure.. :D) and more to return! Oh did anyone watch So You Think you can Dance? thoughts??
