FallWishList

From top left to bottom right: trousers from The Row, Bagatiba choker, A.P.C. striped shirt, Freda Salvador boots, RMS Beauty luminizer

I promise to do an actual outfit post soon, but in the meantime we can all drool over these beautiful things I’ve been eyeing for fall together.

First off, I don’t own a decent pair of black trousers and that needs to be remedied this year. While I’m not about to spend $700 on this pair from The Row (good lord), they are a perfect example of what I’m looking for: simple, masculine, and tailored.

Next up is a simple gold choker to layer underneath the collars of my ever growing collection of menswear-y button downs (which is currently lacking a vertically striped variation, hence the dreamy A.P.C style above).

My favorite pair of black lace up ankle boots is in tatters, sadly. To be fair, I’ve been wearing them for like six years and I got them at UO. It’s probably about time for an upgrade. Freda Salvador to the rescue.

Lastly, I really want this luminizer even though I never wear any makeup besides liner and mascara. Maybe if I buy it I’ll finally learn something about contouring? Doubtful. But it’s the cheapest thing on this wish list and therefore probably the only purchase I’ll actually pull the trigger on. Hashtag commitment issues.

a $295 version of your college shower shoes exists, how does that make you feel?

NewbarKNewbarKObviously, they’re sleeker & sexier, there’s no velcro, and they’re made of leather instead of rubber, but I can’t look at these and not think of Adidas flip flops.

Nevertheless, I kind of like them. For a girl who was once willing to do virtually anything to get out of P.E., I’m surprisingly infatuated with sporty footwear right now. I mean, hey, comfy shoes are in! And I don’t have to feel bad about buying the cheap versions since the expensive ones are actually kind of the knockoffs this time! But I’m also trying really hard not to participate in flash-in-the-pan trends that I may or may not only be into because they’ve become ubiquitous in ad campaigns and my eyes are used to them.

Thoughts?

I’m in Las Vegas this week for WWD Magic, FN Platform and Project.  Today was Platform- my favorite.  There was enough shoe porn for about 80 blog posts, but I did have lots of actual work to do, so I only got to snap a few quick photos with my phone.  Of everything I saw, these Nanette Lepore hologram heels are the ones I’m coveting most.  I haven’t added any hologram pieces to my wardrobe yet, so maybe this is where I should start?
