Wish List: Shoes

YAY! I'm on a roll, two posts this week, and hopefully more to come.

Due to time issues I have to make the best out of a bad situation. I have been meaning to take pictures of my outfits this week, but something keeps happening and I am not able to! :-(

So for now, I hope you enjoy my wish lists. They are of things that I wish to purchase - but it is also a showcase of the best trends this season!

As you will notice, this is the year of the platform, ankle straps, suede, embellishments and 
Truth is, any type of unique shoe is acceptable these days 
that's why it is so fun to dress up with a different look all the time. 

My outfit most-likely starts with a pair of my favorite shoes, and then I figure out the rest. 

One day I can be in flirty mood and wear peep toe wedges and a babydoll dress, or other days I feel tough and want to put on my combat boots, ripped jeans, an oversized sweater and just go...

If anyone asked me why I love fashion so much, it is because of this. Whether we like it or not, people will automatically define you by what you are wearing, and your 'style,' even if they never talk to you.I like being mysterious, and I don't like fitting in to a specific 'type' of anything. I like trying different looks all the time so people can't be so quick to judge who I am, without really getting to know me.

Just like an actor likes playing different characters, Fashion acts like a similar mechanism for me, it's a way I can play around with different moods just by changing my clothes.

Do I have to pick my favorites out of this wishlist?
I really rather not...'cause I would gladly take them all. 

I swear I could never have enough shoes. There are soooo many different styles, it becomes too difficult to choose which one is my favorite. I can't explain it exactly. When you are deciding what jacket you want, for example, (there are many different styles) but at the end of the day, you pick the most practical one that goes with most of your things. 

Shoes cannot be chosen that way. Can you even compare a platform stiletto heel, with a black leather boot, with a ballerina flat? They are all practical, they are all needed in a girl's closet,
therefore they just can not and should not be compared.  
This is why I am forever going to have a shoe problem. I will never be able to just pick one, and even after I do make that heart-wrenching decision, I never seem certain that it was the right choice. 
What's YOUR favorite type of shoes? Which would you pick from the 'wishlist'. Why?
I would love to hear your opinions!
Until Next Time, ~Happy Shopping (but budget wisely) ahaha

Wish List: Jackets

Same story, different day. Updates have been slow, as it seems my pocket can't handle endless shopping. It also has been hard to find inspiration, when you know you can't afford to buy all the new looks. It takes real skill to pick out a certain item out of all the amazing new trends and hope that it is the one that will be timeless and wearable over and over again. 

Starting my Holiday Spirit with 'wish list: jackets' I put together some of the new jacket trends we will be seeing this winter! Of course I would love all of them, but we shall see how Santa treats me this year! ahahah

My absolute favorites of this list is #'s - 1, 4, 6, and 8.

But I have to say I am loving the new shag faux fux style that is coming out this year.
Bohemian Chic feels soo good to dress up in! There is something about that era that is so artsy and expressive that is just cool to re-create.

What I forgot to put on the list is a faux fur leopard coat. That is because last winter I got one from Forever21 and luckily it is back in winter fashion, even more so than last year, therefore I didn't need to put that on my wishlist, since I already own one!

Out of all the coats, the most practical is the long trench and the black leather jacket. Those two coats can be used with a number of outfits year after year, and still look good.
So if I really had to choose, I would need to get a leather jacket. It's weird I don't already have one. And it is important that your leather jacket is light enough to be worn as an accessory piece to an outfit, and can look good in other seasons. Heavy leather jackets are only appropriate in winter.

What do you think about the jackets wish list? Which one is your favorite and why? 

Until next time, ~Happy Shopping
1. Long pea/trench coat: Lulus
2. Sand cape coat: Charlotte russe
3. faux fur shag coat: Asos
4. Comfy suede and wool: Nasty Gal
5. Make love not war coat: Asos
6. Pointy shoulder leather jacket: Lulus
7. Leopard shrug: Betsy Johnson
8. Aztec w/ ribbon over-size sweater: Asos

Outfit of the day - Innocent Grunge

Hey my fashion followers,
 I know I haven't had a post in a while. As usual, schoolwork is catching up to me and I am finding less and less free time to devote to my favorite hobby!

I will say that I have been out and shopping, so I do have some goodie posts on the way! The question is 'when' i am going to be able to update though!

Playing around with my wardrobe, I titled my outfit for the day 'INNOCENT GRUNGE.' The combat boots with sheer black tights always adds that touch of toughness into any look. To set off the harshness from the combat boots I put it with a girly form-fitting flower dress and my favorite 'bow' headband. I threw my black blazer on because it was a little chilly - but it ended up completing my casual/grunge/girly look!

Overall, I am very pleased with the way this turned out! :-)

     A CLOSER LOOK: Headband

1. Dress - Blanco 
2. Tights - Sheer (rite aid)
3. Boots - Greek shoe store 
4. Blazer - H&M
5. Headband - Charlotte Russe
