My wish list

How often do you consider your wardrobe as a whole?  I’ve been reading more fashion blogs and thinking more about my wardrobe as a functioning entity as of late.  My wardrobe is pretty enormous, lets be honest.  But I must now acknowledge that there are some huge gaping holes.  Probably because I have never planned my wardrobe in any way shape or form.  I just saw something I liked and usually bought it whether I needed it or not (I can convince myself I will wear almost anything eventually).

Maybe it’s the fact that I’m getting older (and I have so many clothes that I don’t wear them often enough for anything to really wear out, whereas D is very very hard on clothing and nothing really lasts more than a couple of years) and I need to think – am I really going to want to wear what I’m buying right now in 5 or 10 years?  As a fashionista this is a bit of a *gasp* moment – how could I possibly be caught dead in something I’m wearing now 5 years from now?  I mean, isn’t fashion all about change and whats new?

Honestly, lets try and be practical here.

I’m on the verge of starting a job for the first time in nearly 7 years and the thought of having an income is very exciting.  This last year I have really reigned in the shopping (literally this weekend I had some time to kill, so I went into Witchery and found clearance scarves for $6.90 and $12.90 respectively, plus an additional 25% off…  and didn’t buy a single one because the colours didn’t really suit (even though they were plain and I’ve decided I need more plain scarves!!).

So here is my wish list to help build my wardrobe once I start earning a salary (and yes, I do have expensive taste):

The beautiful leather satchel/tote

A simple, clean black leather bag

The trench coat

The classic denim jacket

Plain dresses

Navy circle skirt

Statement heels (D to me the other day “I’ve never seen you wear heels” – I can really only interpret that as a request, can I not?)

Did I miss anything? What are some of the items currently on your wish list? What is your wardrobe seriously lacking?

  1. Love the trench!! Great find! I completely agree that scanning all these different blogs makes you think twice about combos, what works with what…only thing is I could waste HOURS checking blogs for inspiration… 🙂

  2. Oooh those shoes! I’d love to see you style those! Fantastic! This is a great list! I have one that I’m working on and I’m afraid it will be much too long. So many things I want, but don’t actually need…Haha. Oh well. I’m still going to make the list. 😀

    • I would love to see your wish list! 😀 Haha, it can be too long and no one will judge (I mean, c’mon have you seen my pinterest page? Pretty much a running wish list of things I don’t need and can’t afford but love anyways) – that’s why it’s a “wish list”. 😀

  3. I also was/am trying to get out of the habit of buying just because it’s a good deal or I like it, and instead trying to think of how it can fit into the rest of my wardrobe cohesively. Especially when you’re trying to build a work wardrobe and want to focus on quality over quantity (a lesson I’m still trying to learn). My problem is that I like way too many different styles, looks and colors!
