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.
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...
