Funky, Feminine with an Edge, Urban- Boho, Polished
December, 2014 Wishlist
OMG. How much fun was this? I focused on giant bags that communicate your personal style and are available at Nordstrom so you can get the house party discount. I can do another list for you that aren't at Nordstrom:)
Because you are rocking nude/ brown shoes and boots, I'd like to avoid the nude/brown bag. And, I think you are ready to graduate from the hobo style to up your game. Additionally, if you've got the house party discount and you aren't changing out your bag often, let's go for it with an investment that will pay off with multiple uses. I especially love matching your bag with your coat and since you are rocking the olive green TopShop coat a lot right now, these are ideal with that color palette. You tend to wear more neutral pants (event the dark purple works with all of these), so any bag on this list is lovely with that coat and neutral pants. Black or brown shoes are just fine. Why not go for the attention getting bag, I say? Let me know what you think. I'm obsessed! Happy to give you feedback on each one (feel free to call, too, if you want to go over the details.) But with house party and the limited quantities, I want to get this to you ASAP. I've also gone through the Nordstrom site to make other suggestions for you since you've got House Party! I went a little overboard since I know how anxiously you've been awaiting this list. Really great stuff all around. Enjoy!
I know you love skinnies and I love the idea of grey skinnies for you. High rise is best, especially when your weight is in flux. These look smashing and make you feel that way, too. And the wash has a nice 90's edge which is very you right now:)
The denim equivalent to the dark green pants I have that you love. Super flattering, but they look best with lift, for sure. Slimming and the higher rise is comfortable and looks great.
With an African American designer, Lafayette 148 is all about looking great on the curvy body. These are comfortable, flattering and work well with flats. I know you prefer lift, but with your foot injury, this just offers you options in the event that flats (or sneakers) are more comfortable some days. Love these with Converse, your TopShop coat and one of your new crazy awesome bags. Yes!
I can see you get a ton of use out of this throughout the year. The cut is flattering and you can layer, layer, layer. Plus, it is super forgiving for those days when you just want to roll out of bed and put something on, but still look and feel great once you hit the streets. Also, lovely with your coat, bag situation and the neckline shows off your bold necklaces. Plus, is super affordable with the house party discount.
I know it's the wrong time of year for these. But, they are glorious and comfortable. They just appeared on the site. Woot! So, if you don't get them now with the higher discount, keep your eyes on them. Love the fine Italian leather of Coclico!
Oh my gosh! I may have saved the best for last. Obsessed! So you, so modern, so functional and so so cool! Rock them with pants or dresses, in the rain and out. And best of all, no one else has them.
