Forgive the New Jersey dialect – you can take the girl out of Nutley, but . . .
I wrote two months ago about my shopping list for Fall/Winter 2012. Here’s the graphic of my wish-list:
I’ve had some great success tackling my list (any of you with a touch of OCD know how satisfying it is to make the check-mark!). I bought cool eyeglasses and feel really hip when I wear them, forgetting that 20 years ago no such device was needed to read. I have a new striped tee by Jones New York that fits the bill.
I bought these surprisingly great jeans via a tip from Angie of YouLookFab. I thought I would dislike the whiskering, but I really love wearing these “curvy” straight-legs: the rise is for grown-ups and the fit is just perfect.
|I don’t love the look with the pumps! But I wear these with booties and do like.|
I found the full khaki skirt I’m wearing here at a consignment store. It’s perfect for work and weekends.
Two very pretty non-silk scarves made their way into my scarf drawer, via eBay. Still looking for that perfect high-end one that will rock my world. I love the hunt, so no stress here. I also bought a soft, pretty ivory cardigan from (yes!) the 15dollarstore, and it’s a great wardrobe-stretcher.
So I have done rather well, IMHO. Still on the list are:
- The dream ivory blouse: loosely fitted, three-quarter or long sleeves, low-ish neckline and washable. It’s been a real challenge. If you have any suggestions, I’d be grateful.
- Ballet flats: I’ve tried on lots but most have felt “too flat” (I know! what a pill I can be!). I’d like a little support and a slightly pointed toe – almond, I think?
- Oxfords: There’s plenty of good choices at Zappo’s, so I just need to get in motion and order some. I am crazy about the ones shown above but they cost $450, or in my new parlance, a very nice comforter set for the condo.
How are you (NJ: youse) doing with your shopping lists?
