[Wishlist] Things I Want and Have No Need For....

Do you ever catch yourself loving items that you really have no use for?  Maybe a perfect pancake flipper, a decorative ceramic stool for the lush outdoor patio you don't have, or even the perfect diaper bag for a baby you don't yet have??.... yeah, me neither...



Just kidding.



Recently with all the new Pre-Fall and early fall roll outs, I've started swooning for items I know would never be worn.  Pencil skirts and oxford heels would never be necessary for my jeans and flats casual workplace environment, and if I wore them for the hell of it, I'm sure people would assume I'm interviewing elsewhere.  Or brightly colored jackets and dress coats that I don't need either.  Maybe even red pants or jeans that look so freaking awesome on any one who wears them (here, here, here... see?), but I don't really have the balls to do it...


Anyway... here are some items I am L-O-V-ING for no reason this week....
No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Double Surge Wool - J.Crew $120
Bosky Lace Skirt - Anthropologie $118
Biella High-Heel Satin Loafer - J.Crew $295
Pierce High-Heel Oxfords - J.Crew $285
School Boy Blazer in Velvet - J.Crew $168
Fatigue Finery Cape – Anthropologie $298

Plaza Coat - J.Crew $278
Minnie Pant in Stretch Twill - J.Crew $79.50

 
J Brand Mid Rise Skinny Leg Jeans - Piperlime $176



What are you loving from a distance right now?



... ps, I'm apparently really digging bright colors over my usual neutrals... who knew?  It's like an effing rainbow up there....

  3. I have been lusting over the double serge pencil skirts, season after season... I just never want to throw down the $ for something that'll rarely get worn... though, I guess its a classic, I should invest! ;)

  5. Actually I can see you working both the cape and the coat into your wardrobe. Probably not helpful, but they're both really great!

  8. The purple skirt is so beautiful. I joined the pinterest bandwagon. It's quite satisfying to pin things and that seems to be enough sometimes.
