My Wardrobe needs a Make-Over.

My wardrobe is still full to the the brim of Summer pieces, and there is nothing more off putting, than seeing flip flops in the shoe section or skimpy sun dresses, when it is lashing rain outside.

I haven't done a  virtual wish list in ages, the reason? I always get muddled and its not half as fun. Online shopping, whilst very convenient, can get quite tedious. There is nothing better than walking into a shop, full of New Season clothing and having a good root around. You just can't do that on the Internet.

However, I have put together a mini-want/ need list. I have seen & tried on a few of these items in the actual stores, so I really do like them. A bit practical, perhaps? Yes, perhaps! I am very good at wanting a €1000 bright pink coat, but when it comes down to facts, I would never in a million years be able to afford that, or get away with wearing it two/ three days in a row, if I wished to do so. Therefore, I have picked some Autumn/ Winter trends, that I really, really would like to see in my wardrobe. Anything would be better than its current state of affairs!

Anything catch your fancy here?

Although I don´t do it very often, shopping with a list is much better and clever.

I love your blog and the warehouse dress! I think online shopping is a little dangerous (especially on ebay where you can't return things) sometimes things arrive in the post which aren't quiet perfect but whereas in the shop you'd walk away, at home you let it slid... just me?

dishly said...

i like the pleats on the first red dress with the sheerish sleeves :) and i love the lace up high heel boots!!

yes online shopping is really dangerous, but i do it alll the time ahaha, can't help it when you've got exams to study for!

Love the boot on the left!

Ginta said...

Topshop dress - love it! Color is so ripe, so good! And tall River Island boot - perfection! Great picks!

ari said...

also on my list: cape and lace up booties. I am also in a desperate need of a closet makeover, not sure why but I feel a huge blah these past days when getting dressed, not sure if it's the lack of Fall pieces in my closet, or that I have been so busy, overwhelmed, and tierd lately :(
hope you get some or ALL ;) of the stuff on your wishlist!

lets see... that red dress. tiers are somewhat overdone this season but the simple boxy silhouette on thsi dress actually makes it interesting, and with sleeves too. so perfect for fall and can be worn so many different ways , dressed up or down ... hmmmmm
