Wishlist Wednesday (Ready for Fall)

It's officially Autumn, and I'm (mostly) ready to face the cooler temperatures. Having these might help.


Red Felt Cloche Hat, $32 at Kohls
I tried this on in the store. It's super cute. I want it to go on sale, and then to get an additional 30% off, because that is the only way to shop at Kohls.

Faux Fur Vest, $29.50 at Old Navy
It would seem this is one of the must-have items this season. They are everywhere. And at every price point. But I ask, is the acrylic fiber of the $700 vest really that much better than $30 vest? I know not all faux furs are made equal, but I've felt the cheap vest - it's soft, it's cozy, I like it!


Brown 'leather' satchel, $58 at Urban Outfitters
This is not the brown leather bag of my dreams. It's not even leather. The bag I want is tough, but beautiful, the kind you could throw your life into and have an adventure. The kind of bag that would somehow save your life one day. You know the bag. I feel like I've been looking forever (or maybe since last winter) and I think I may have found it, but it 'aint cheap.


I found my way to Saddleback Leather the other day and started to look around. They have some very beautiful leather bags. I read all about how they make the leather, about how the company got started, about the owners dog (which made me cry, because animal stories always do). This might be the bag, and considering it's meant to last for a hundred years, the price tag of $335 might be worth it.
We'll see.



Leopard Pumps by Steve Madden, $50 at Amazon
Do I need more leopard in my closet? Probably not. Do I need a pair of leopard pumps in addition to the flats I already have? Probably not. But this is a wishlist, after all, and I can't seem to get enough animal print to satisfy me.


Wedge Booties by Nine West, $99 at Amazon
While these are available in four colors  - the other three being the sensible ones - I was really drawn to the green. They make me think of robin hood. In a good way.


Not on the list because I can't find any:
Red wool pants, like the ones seen in Lucky's October issue.


I know Gap has some red cords, but that's not the same. If you find any, let me know!


Not on the list because they still aren't available:
Studded Suede Wonda Oxfords from G by Guess. 


Only been wanting them since June...

I love those animal print pumps, they could go on my wishlist too... if I wasn't trying not to shop :)

Frances Joy said...

I'm going to dream about those green wedges, I just KNOW it. And about the leopard print pumps (swoon) and the bag that could save my life. That is one kickass bag.

Great wishlist.

Casee Marie said...

Oh, those pumps! They need to be in my life immediately. Love!

I do hope you go for the leather bag. It looks fantastic!

Elaine said...

Wow. I love it. These are amazing!!

As for the leopard pumps, have you checked out JCP?? They ahve a cheaper version! http://www2.jcpenney.com/jcp/X6.aspx?GrpTyp=STY&ItemID=1a03a86&Ntt=olsenboye&hdnOnGo=true&Ne=840+4+877+878+5+961+6+29+3+598+11+15+12+506+10+23+585+596+1031+8+18+904+903+969+949+833&submit%20search.y=0&SearchString=olsenboye&submit%20search.x=0&N=4294959029&Nao=0&SO=0&PSO=0&cmAMS_T=XGN5&cmAMS_C=MERCH&cmAMS_Z=XGN5TOPOFRESULTS&CmCatId=searchresults

I love those zebra pumps, I thought about buying them at DSW when I went for a visit with the lame $5 off coupon DSW sent me for my b-day but they were too big, whenever I walked they would come out and they didn't have them in a smaller size. The satchel (335) is great, I wish I could afford something like that.

MarchMusings said...

I've often thought a cloche hat would be good for a bad hair day. This one is in a pretty colour too!

Eli said...

you've successfully made me drool!!! love all of your picks! :)

CoutureChick said...

Love all of it. ALthough i'm trying to find a knock off to the Burberry boots Janet Jackson wore.. The search continues lol And i love the leopard print

Anne said...

That hat is adorable! I love that cloche hats seem to be in this fall, it's such a great style! And there's no reason to ever pay full price for anything at Kohl's :)

Berlin said...

These are to die for!

Swirls and twirls,

Marie said...

Gah! I love your fall wishes so much...those green wedge booties are amazing. And the hat, oh the hat!!

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

Love the hat! Great minds think alike - why full price when you know it'll go on sale?

jamie-lee said...

I think sometimes you just have to go ahead and spend a bit more money than you are comfortable with on something. I would buy that satchel, but the UO one is just as nice x
