Excuse me for posting this so late (i.e. not in August like the fashion crazies do). It's just that I always like to save my fall shopping until:
a. I've already seen some pretty people walking around the city with trends on their body.
b. I've done my big seasonal closet switch-out, and have gotten familiar with what I already have in my closet.
Check and check. Plus, this Sunday, fall came in and sat down like it was here to stay. There were leaves on the ground! The whole city was shrouded in a cool mist that made you long for a fireplace. Pumpkins sat in piles next to bodegas. You can no longer wear tropical colors without looking utterly out of touch.
I am ready to go shopping.
The following 36 items constitute my wish list of things that I would buy if I were suddenly to find $10,000 in my pocket. I obviously can't buy everything, but it's fun to look. Hopefully, I can bring myself to pare this down to a reasonable number that will spruce up my wardrobe. And I hope you get inspired too!
