My Fall Shopping List

I have this shopping list since August but I never got the chance to actually post it. As you can see by now some things have already been purchased while others still await.


1. Black motorcycle jacket : I have my Jean Paul Gaultier in brown and red but it's so hard to match sometimes that I really need a black one as well.

2. Lots of cozy sweaters: I already went crazy and purchased so many and I have a feeling I probably won't be able to stop myself to buy more once winter rolls around.

3.Wool cape: not the lady dutch I have previously shown you but a beautiful and comfy hybrid of coat/cape was given to me by George as a gift.

4.Leather dress: Ever since I saw Jen from Her Waise Choice wearing hers I knew I wanted to be a bad ass in one too.

5.Black Skinny Jeans: a sleeker alternative than the faded distressed ones I currently wear.

6.Trench coat: This has already passed its utility for this season as it is too cold for trench coats. I was not able to score one prior to September which is really when I was in dire need of one. This will probably me on my spring shopping list as well.

7.Fair Isle dress: saw it first in Vogue and I knew I had to get one.

8.Leopard print booties and possibly a dress: animal print is something that I never tire off. A complete classic that can look totally tacky worn the wrong way.

9. Riding/Motorcycle flat boots: I really preferred the riding style but settled for motorcycle when I found these super comfy ones in a distressed taupish brown.

10. Shearling Combat Booties: Oh yeah the it shoe of the season. Not the Burbery ones though just cause I have always refused to pay money for it things. Unfortunately they loose their charm after a couple of seasons.

I'll take everything on your wish list too. Thanks! :)

Btw..how did you create that graphic of all the items on that notebook page? It looks so cute!

Tanvi said...

How cool that so many of the cool items have already been bough! I need those boots and a leather dress too. Pronto :)

And how did you create it though?!?

diane said...

I'm on board with the leather dress.
It's a great list, visually.

nookie said...

and how you'll save if you buy all of these?
I want shearling jacket&boots, cozy sweaters and a comfy desk chair because this one is killing me...hopefully I'll get the polyvore card soon:) though I'll get the shearling stuff online for sure because I can't find anything proper here...

nookie said...

classiq said...

OMG!! I looove all of them! Like reading my mind. I see the leather jacket :)

The Hearabouts said...

I need a cape and tons of sweaters, too..

Anyway, concerning your questions.. we do try to take the photos outside, on well lit days, and I prefer jpg rather than RAW format.

If the natural conditions aren't the best, then you should shoot RAW and then edit the lighting parameters in Photoshop so as to get the best possible quality.

Furthermore, if there isn't anyone there to take your pics, you could try to take them yourself. It's quite time-consuming,though, and you will have to purchase a tripod and a remote (if you don't already have those). I think I've seen a tutorial on this subject on IFB.

Hope I've been helpful.

Too bad you didn't get to scratch off the list the trench coat. I love trench coats and I would really need a beige one like the one in your picture. Like you've said, there is always spring to "finish the job" :))
Now that you've mentioned it, I think I want a pair of leopard booties too.

Ioana Liliana Gheorghe said...

I need a pair of shearling booties so bad!

I know . . I've missed you too, but these days have just been to hectic. Today I'm catching up on my blogging, and hopefully will chat to you soon (pls send a msj when you're on fb)

Lots of love!
Ioana

Superbe list

Anaivilo said...

Oh those shearling boots are amazing! I am not sure I can walk on that very thin heel.
Regarding sewing...mind if I ask you why did you quit studying fashion? I'm just curious since you have a stylish and fashion-concerned blog :D

lancelonie said...

The Backseat Stylers said...

Pretty much everything on your list I want too! I've been looking for something fair isle for a few winters now...hopefully this is the season I finally find something. I tried on the Burberry shearling boots at Holts this past weekend and literally did not want to take them off. So damn cool. But you're right - too much money for an It boot!

michelle_ said...

Cheryl: Oh to Be a Muse said...

i purchased a similar pair to those combat booties, but they don't have fur or anything so i think they will continue to be great shoes after this season.

the cape is definitely on my list as well...unfortunately as of late I go out looking for apparel and then end up coming home whit something for my son :). I guess that happens when you have a child.

wroughtironstyle said...

I love that you called it a "Frenchcoat." I want one too. It never really gets too cold for one in Texas.
