The fringe handbags pictured above are absolutely gorgeous. I must admit, I was a bit annoyed when creating the board. Why? Well, one thing about me that a great deal of people don’t know, is that I’ll wear something once and discard of it.
Wait….Allow me to clarify that, because I know some of you will probably read that with eyes wide open. (Lol) I have the tendency to get over clothing, shoes, and the like, before they’re considered dated. I’ll randomly wake up and say, “This must go.” Something like a liquidation sale, except I’m not selling anything!
Furthermore, I purchased a turquoise shoulder bag from Target last year that I was really excited about. I carried it a few times and ended up getting rid of it, along with some other items. I thought, “There’s no way fringe bags will make a comeback.” WRONG! The other day, I was thumbing through one of my favorite fashion publications and noticed an entire article on fringe handbags. I was sick, livid, all the above! This is clearly a lesson to me: Hold on a little longer! Also, festival season is upon us and what better way to house all of your essentials?!
P.S. I’ve provided a few photos for your viewing pleasure. By then, you’ll know why I made such a fuss!
This is the first time that I’ve done a post on Saturday, but I had to share with you my Christmas wish list. Let’s explore…
I experimented with a soft purple earlier this year and really loved the way it looked against my lips. I wouldn’t mind having it stashed away in my makeup bag.
I’ve always been a fan of a good, quality gold watch. I’ve lusted over the Rolex 18K 26mm gold watch for quite some time.
These boots are anything short of gorgeous! Oh, how I would love to have these apart of my shoe collection, to pair with trousers, a mixed media skirt, and skater dress.
I feel like this year was the revival of the Moschino belt, seeing the models strut down the runway with their belts, only made me want one.
The irony of me longing for a bucket bag, when there was a time that you couldn’t even pay me to carry one. Not anymore, I’m making it a point to have this apart of my bag collection.
No shade, but since I can’t afford a classic, black quilted Chanel bag, Rebecca Minkoff’s will do!
MCM (Mode Creation Munich) is a classic brand. Even getting my hands on one of their vintage shoulder bags would suffice.
Out of all the bracelets I own, still no gold cuff. I fell in love with gold cuffs while scrolling my Instagram feed, and stumbled upon one from Jennifer Fisher.
I did a post on full skater skirts earlier this year, and have yet to purchase one.
A black faux fur coat is something that I MUST have! I think they look so cute paired with an after five dress. I plan on wearing one for NYE.
I’d like to think that I’m a mascara enthusiast. I love trying different types of mascara, no matter the price. I learned of the Better Than Sex Mascara from a friend that is a Beauty Expert at Sephora. She guaranteed me that the mascara lives up to its name! 😉
Viktor & Rolf’s Flower Bomb smells amazing. I received a sample and I was sold instantly. I can’t wait to add it to my plethora of perfumes!
Now that we’ve explored my Christmas wish list, what’s on yours?
Recently, I’ve been trying to tackle all of my September issues from my favorite fashion publications and I’ve got fall/winter’s musthave trends. Surprisingly, I’m not as ready for the coming seasons as I have been in the past. I’m still wanting to wear printed onesies and crop tops (of course, without the presence of a jacket or cardigan.) LOL
However, I’m prepared for the cooler temps and ready to experiment with the season’s hottest trends. As always, I’ve taken my notes to Polyvore and created a trend board for you to use as a shopping guide.
Fall florals I love floral and the fact that I can still wear the print during the cooler seasons is a plus. Dresses, buttoned tops, and full skirts are my musthaves for wearing fall florals for the coming season.
White is still right for the fall/winter season. Go for an head-to-toe white look or opt for the classic black and white look.
Fair Isle Pullovers have made a comeback and can be paired with a pair of skinnies and flats or pointed heels.
Tartan Accessories Add a tartan scarf to your favorite pea coat for a classic and polished look.
Word Jewelry is so dainty and can easily add a chic touch to any ensemble. Word necklaces and rings are especially my favorite.
Chain Strap Minis are so cute and I believe that they’ll never go out of style. Pair one with a patterned mini skirt for a classic, effortless look.
Full Skirts are my favorite and look great with a silk, printed blouse. Opt for a real or faux leather full skirt and pair with a denim buttoned shirt and pointed heels.
Fur will never go out of style. If you are unable to afford real fur, you can always choose a good quality faux fur. I purchased a faux fur vest last year and I’ll definitely be wearing it again this year.
Bad Girl Plaid is bad ass yet so classic. This 90’s trend is one of my favorites. I could see myself pairing a black and red plaid mini skirt with a white buttoned short, underneath a black sweater. I’ll then finish the look with thigh high tights and black oxford heels.
