Fall Wishlist Part 2

Monday, August 12, 2013

1. Asos, 2. Vans, 3. LL Bean, 4. Quay, 5. Eileen Fisher, 6. Jack Rogers 

I have been non stop unpacking and I've realized something, I have too much crap.
Honestly, I had to stop sorting through clothes last night because I was disgusted

Why,you ask, am I posting a wishlist?

Because I have a new philosophy on shopping and clothing.

The first one being I am to never buy another sweater again in my life (the apartment is overflowing with heavy knits).

The second thing is that when I buy something I want it to be a classic, high quality piece that I can wear for a long, long time.

Take numbers 3 and 5. While they are sweaters (cringe) they are investment pieces that I can wear for years. A classic LL Bean fisherman sweater will never go out of style and Eileen Fisher clothing is of the highest quality.

I did opt to buy the Quay sunglasses I wrote about previously because I had been eyeing the style for quite some time.

I think, for now, I will hold off on buying anymore shoes. As my mom told me last week, "it is possible to have too many shoes". 
However, I do think these Vans and Jack Rodgers are staples for any wardrobe.

Screw the dress (#1). 
I definitely don't need that. 

The third, and last thing, is advice given by Barbs. If I buy something new I should give away or throw away another item. This is definitely sage advice as I don't think my apartment or BF can take one more additional item without something else leaving.

Preach, sista! I'm with you on the whole "unpacking and being disgusted with yourself thing"

Seriously. Sometimes I just look at piles of clothes on the floor and tell myself I should just throw the whole damn thing away. Without digging through!

Love your wish list! I'm a sucker for a good cable knit too!

Omg I have the same sweater problem, but still bought a new sweater at H&M today! Will definitely take your mom's advice, too - my closet is literally overflowing.
