In order to build a well rounded wardrobe, and avoid impulse purchases I like to keep a running list of pieces I think will compliment my closet and the other pieces I’ve collected over the year. Here, I'm sharing the things I have on my list with you and will continually update it as I think of new things and also if and when I decide that some things on this list won’t work after-all.
You can click on any of the images to be taken to their purchase page if you're interested. Also, at the bottom of the page I've included anything from the wish list that I've purchased so that you can see how the items go from wish list to purchase and then are actually incorporated into my wardrobe.
MY WISH LIST
PURCHASED OR GRACIOUSLY GIFTED FROM MY WISH LIST
NO LONGER ON MY WISH LIST & WHY
After having a pair of plaid pants on my wish list for months, I haven’t been able to find a pair that works perfectly for me. That coupled with the fact that the more I think about it, the more I realize that I just don’t wear printed bottoms has caused me to move these off of my wish list.
I may come back to them another time, but for now I have other items that I’d rather spend my money on. Things that I think will better compliment what I have already and the direction my style seems to be headed these days. Plus, when I want a touch of plaid (especially in the fall) I always have my plaid coat :)
SLIP ON SNEAKERS
I don’t wear sneakers all that often and when I do, I’ve been very satisfied with my two lace up options - one in white and one in black. Even though a pair of slip on sneakers would be great for traveling (going through TSA etc) I don’t think I would wear them enough to warrant a spot in my closet.
Things may change down the line, but for now they’re coming off my wish list.
