*Wish Wish Wish* (Autumn Wishlist)

A lot of my picks for this fall are adjacent to the 70’s trend that’s going on right now. For instance, I have inexplicably been looking for the perfect velvet shoes and purse for about two months now. Did I ever consider velvet – which always reminds me of the Juicy velour track suit trend –  before August? Absolutely not, but now I can’t get the Claire V, Jeane bag out of my head (as shown below – and I know it’s suede, but velvet could be the cheaper version of  suede if you squint your eyes a little bit).  I’m also into very girly or feminine shoes – lots of Mary Jane looking flats and the trendy lace-up ballet flats that are everywhere.

There are some consistencies to my style, however. I will always like kitsch-y, feminist, girl-power accents. Like the line of t-shirts that Tuesday Bassen did (which goes up to a 2X!) featuring her popular Girls design, that is also a popular enamel pin. I’m not sure I’m into the enamel pin trend, in and of itself, but I love the Girls banner as a t-shirt. I also adore the special line that Claire V did especially for the Suffragette premiere and have been secretly hoping that it would become available to us non-celebrity folk.


And this isn’t even the best look from that movie.

There is also this very sweet yellow dress from SimplyBe that looks very 60’s and is ON SALE. I have many fond and wistful feelings towards this dress. To think, I had grand plans of looking like Ali McGraw in Love Story this season, but instead I keep looking like I walked straight out of the movie An Education.

This print of Gloria Steinem is pretty special to me for a couple of reasons. A) Gloria Steinem, duh. B) My mom looked a lot like Gloria Steinem growing up and I’d love to pretend that this little radical is my mama with a big 60’s bouffant (for the record, my mother is significantly younger than Gloria Steinem and never has, nor never will, burn a bra, but I can dream).
