I admit it, I am pretty broke at the moment so am having to make do with what I own and add very inexpensive things to my wardrobe this spring. This, of course, does not stop me from seeing things I would love to own when I wander fashion sites online.
Here are some of the most recent fashion items that I have seen and wished I had the money to buy.
San Diego Pink & Tan Woody Platform Heels by Jeffrey Campbell
Wood platform heels, great colour combo, gorgeous style, and the name of the heel is my hometown! Definitely a pair of shoes I would love to wear.
Crowning Glory Necklace at Modcloth. com
It is long and chunky in style which I really love. Perfect for little black dresses like the one pictured or with a long dress for a more 70s look.
And now for two long dresses that need to be in my closet.
Pleated silk maxi halter dress by The Row
I have a confession to make: The only white article of clothing I own is a white v-neck tee shirt. I don't even own white underwear or socks.
That is why this dress it so appealing to me. It looks light and airy...juts perfect for a hot summer night/day. I should keep an eye out for something less expensive and similar in style on my wanderings around town.
Printed silk-habotai maxi dress by Edun
I am in love with olive green. It is my favorite colour in fact and this dress is that shade. I love the print and the cut of the dress. It would look good with platform heels, wedges, or even flip flops. So easy to dress this maxi dress up (for a night out) or down (so a more casual day look). I am loving it.
And two skirts that caught my eye:
Ruched stretch-linen skirt by A.L.C.
The ruching of the skirt really appeals to me. It is also in a neutral colour that would go with so much that hangs in my closet already. The skirt is also at a length I love...just above the knee. This skirt would fit into my wardrobe with absolutely no problem.
Embellished printed silk georgette skirt by Edun
I love the colours in the pattern of the skirt, the style, and the shine! This skirt, as you can see in the photo, would be perfect with a simple white shirt and strappy sandals. I would wear it with my one v-neck, white, tee as a casual/dressy outfit to head out for the evening in. This skirt would get a lot of use from me.
Above: Go Fish Ring at Lulus.com
The fish ring is simple and cool. It has a bit of an ancient look to it and I am more attracted to the gold tone version than the silver. This fish ring would feel right at home in my jewelry box.
Nail Necklace by Cheap Monday
I love the "oil on water" colour that the necklace has. So modern and funky. I also love the style which would definitely dress-up and funk up an outfit.
Ringed Plover Kimono Wrap by Odylyne
It looks comfy while being one of those tops you can wear casual (with jeans) or dress up (bold rings and an eye-catching necklace). I am loving it!
I am sure I will run across lots of spring fashion that catches my eye and will sigh because of not being able to buy it. At least I have this blog to share my finds with others and maybe they will be able to buy what catches their eye in my posts.
