Shouldn't we do a fall/winter thread by now? I already bought some stuff
So far, I'm mostly interested in white boots and finding a black (preferably leather) pleated skirt..
I loved the canvas ones by Topshop but they're a little too much on the scruffy side.. still, the shape looks ideal so I'll probably end up buying them later in the month.
I would also LOVE to get some knock offs of Céline's golden handcuffs..
Already?!?! NO!! I don't want to let go of my summer dresses and my shorts...well maybe I won't have to since I live in California. But fall means back to school and work! Darn...it's too early to make a must-haves list but I will come back here...
I already started
I ALWAYS need knits, so I started out with this one from Gina Tricot...a nice transition piece really
I like simple knits with a slight twist, so I guess I'll be buying a bunch of stuff from COS
And I NEED this coat, I just love grey coats and I'm not happy with the one I got last season. So I'm getting this one from H&M
Ordered these boots from H&M:
And I still need grey jeans. Might go to Cheap Monday for those.
Mullet I'm obsessed with Celine too. I'd kill for an A-line leather skirt! Leather anything, really. And those cuffs...ahhhh
i don't know..
but i feel torn between androgyny and glam...
maybe androgynous clothing with glam hair and make up?......
i have to work it out still...
the thing that i have recently identified as being missing from my wardrobe is a good leather jacket...
i've had a number of them over the years...
but they are all worn out or out of date...
not sure about the style though...
haven't seen anything that really makes me go......
i feel like i'd like some tailoring though...
maybe as a backlash to all the slouchy grunge stuff that has been everywhere...
i really like grey and tweed coats as well and i would be interested in something like that if i found it...
maybe with TOGGLES...
i think i want a toggle coat of some sort...
and LOTS of stuff in NAVY blue...
totally feeling it right now!
that sounds quite nice to me...
Toggles remind me so much of Paddington the Bear My mum made me a toggle coat once, I loved it!
I do know that the grey H&M coat is very similar to the Isabel Marant coats, but I'm not complaining There's just something about grey coats and chunky grey cable knits that screams COSY! to me. I swear I feel warmer when I'm wearing grey and black! I'm very focused on not being cold, I swear last winter was killing me. SO cold and SO much snow!
I pretty much always shop for fall/winter clothes. Esp doing the summer sales - I found two pairs of black knee high suede boots marked down 90% in the middle of May. I snatched them up as soon as I saw them I got both the flat and the heeled version.
The only thing I might pick up so fas is this jacket form the H&M fashion agains Aids campaign:
It never hurts to have an extra transistion jacket, since winter leather jacket it too warm for anything above 5-8 degrees celcius.
FW shopping is always my fav kind as I feel you can endulge sooo much more in quality and luxuary...
This year im sorta going back to the RL FW collections of 06/07/08 Loved them at the time and just did not have the cash... now I do and might have a look on ebay to see if I can find any gems.
Im def after a new fitted tweed coat too... maybe a military style coat too... like total vintage red soldiers coat would be cool!
I also def want some more fur and cashmere stuff... my obsession really started with them last year... and I def want to expand on my collections of these luxuary fabrics.
I've completely moved away from fast fashion and i'd rather buy much less but of a higher quality!
My plan is to buy some more boots too... I'd love something in snakeskin or aligator!
Also I would agree about toggle coats... I love my navy one... so warm... but when I wear my duffle coat some of my mates slag me off for being paddington bear!
Will post some pics once I actually have some definate ideas!
Cant wait to see other peoples ideas too... Love winter fashion so cant wait to september when the shops get stuff in!
-a boot with a clog like bottom. i think the prefall celine ones.
-would love to find a big cuff like mullets pick only in silver
-a faux fur big bushy coat, this i've wanted for awhile but just havent found the right one. i passed up a faux leopard one from limi feu a few years back and have never gotten over that i guess.
-oversized alpaca sweaters
From ZZegna FAll/Winter 2010 Mens.
I'm not sold on the matching outfit [I like it, but it's more than I could carry off] but the pants or the jacket on their own are both fantastic. I love the color and the front seams. The pants are for sure a must have for me, and the jacket...almost for sure.
Also from Z Zegna Fall/Winter2010 Mens
As with the previous item, the pieces are fantastic. If I actually owned the pants and jacket, I'm sure I'd give it a whirl.
Ah fall. Well, this season I will first of all invest in a pair of leather pants (finally.) Secondly, I'm looking for the perfect kaki fall jacket. I actually think I've found the one from Isabel Marant Etoile.
As for shoes, these Acne shoes are highly craved
And if I'm feeling lucky and my cash flow is good, I will buy Givenchy Pandora. I'm also obsessed with Céline. So I will probably find some lookalike bracelets.
I believe this is going to be a great season
I want a nice cozy sweater, my mum is knitting one like this from Étoile Isabel Marant for me.
The yarn is so soft (mohair and silk), I'll be looking forward to wearing it this fall.
I also really like these combinations from Comme des Garçons FW09.
I need a pair of gloves and I'm searching for ones like these.
picture by me
^ I LOVE your packback; I was looking online through some things, and H&M has tons of those! I am considering getting one for school or I'll die under AP classes. X"DD
It most definitely is difficult for me to think "WINTER! FALL! COLD! WARM CLOTHES!" when I live in a desert and the lowest it gets to if we're lucky are the teens in Fahrenheit. P:
I bought a lovely warm trench for last year and it served me well; I'm also good on a couple of big, super warm hoodies, but they're not very.. appealing, I guess you could say.
I'd like to hunt for another trench, but some thing a bit longer [my mind immediately turns to Selene's jacket in Underworld. ROFL. Bad Katya, stop with the insane items- not THAT long!]
I am definitely in need of long boots and booties- I died last year, with all the puddles that cover the school courtyard. -___-;
And I must move on from my Vans haul; I need more shoes, some thing more interesting.
I also am in desperate need for a good pencil skirt- some thing more professional-esque, eh? And blouses, button-downs, some thing I can change up with whatever I'm wearing. [And more jeans. Jeez, I need a huge update.]
I also need more simple tees- of all cuts, but need to be long- and cardigans. I am obsessed.
We're going shopping later today [considering it's nearly five AM.. again, BAD Katya!], so I'm going to begin looking through which items I'm considering; I bring my journal with me EVERY WHERE so I can create a list, then! P;
- some boots with laceups maybe the sportmax runway ones or tommy hilfiger runway
- isabel marant suede bow shoes (if they do my size!)
- fingerless gloves
- michael kors runway sweater dress
- tommy hilfiger runway plaid coat
I saw a nice lightweight flannel from John Foster Fabric the other day at work. Could wear it almost year round. Would love to commission a single breasted, peak lapel, 2/3 roll suit out of it.
I need a lot of boots and a leather jacket. To begin with.
