december wishlist

one // two // three // four // five // six // seven

Can you believe we made it to December? Friggen bonkers, I tell you. Anyway, new month means new things to wish for!

one // You all know my love for colored tights, but I've been a little cautious of patterned tights. After seeing Sara wear these pretty rose tights on her blog, I went out and bought a similar pair, but have been too scared to wear them. Then, I was at a party last weekend and my friend wore the coolest patterned tights, so I decided I need to step up my tights game. These are pretty intense, but I also think they'd be semi-easy to wear with skirts and dresses because the lines are all horizontal.

two // I haven't bought a new coat in a couple of years, but this winter is especially chilly! I've always wanted a red coat, and even more after reading Nora Ephron essays about them, so I've been on the lookout for the perfect one. I'm really picky about coat shapes. Is that just me? Some are too frilly and girly, making the shape is hard to wear with jeans. Others are too boxy or voluminous. What I really want is something that's slightly cinched and a long enough to cover a longer sweater, but not actually a long coat. I love the double-breasted look, and I don't really love belts. Found: the perfect red coat. I'm super digging that the fur bit is removable for ultimate versatility. 

three // I'm not  really in the market for a NYE dress, but if I were, this would be the winner, hands down. I found it back in October I think and fell in L.O.V.E. It's sparkle, it's sequin, it covers and reveals just enough to be sexy, plus it looks like it fits like a glove! Gimme.

four // I want all the festive sweaters! American Eagle has a bad rep for being a preppy high schooler's dream, but they really do have cute stuff. This year, they're rocking out some awesome sweaters (as evidenced here) and this one is no exception. 

five // Who can say no to a bejeweled, knit, emerald ear warmer? Not I.

six // These boots. Put them on my feet and call me winter ready. Actually, I want an identical pair in black, but I can't find any that I like. Halp?

seven // If you know anything about me, then you know that this is me, in t-shirt form. Whatever you're into, you can probably find 100 things you need on this website. Get to shoppin'!

What are you wishing for this month?


  1. I LOVE that emerald headband!!! I can't seem to pull of winter hats at all, but this is just perfect. Also, the Human store is amazing! Soooo many fun gift ideas.


  2. I love that knitted headband! SO pretty! I also really love that jacket. Great picks, lady!

  3. that is one sweet wish list! those tights are freakin' cool! and that dress just sparkles! two thumbs up on your choices!

  4. sparkle sparkle sparkle! & fuck yeah femme pride

  5. Umm that sweater is amazing! And I totally love that coat. I'm so happy to be in cold weather this year that I kind of went overboard and bought a few coats... Otherwise I'd probably be seriously contemplating that beauty!

  6. that NYE is totally you. Keep an eye out for a sale and grab that sucker for a later date! (and then wear it every day anyway. because why wait?)

    1. **that nye DRESS is totally you... not just nye in general. Although maybe that nye is totally you. What do I know? haha

  7. I love that dress so hard. I think you posted or maybe Facebooked about it a while back and I loved it then and I still love it. I think I have the same thing with coats. Coats are just expensive enough that I'm not going to have a million of them but I want a longer girly one that looks good with dresses and I want a heavy duty one for super cold days and I want a nice bright one. I have a couple of coats and one's grey and one's black with white polka dots. I'm a big fan of both, but I really want to bright coat. It just hasn't happened yet. The fur detail on that one is so cute!
