An Elizabeth Suzannduster in black. This is a perfect layering piece for work. I’d wear a white button-down shirt under this. It has an art professor vibe that I love.
A skinny silk scarf to add a little color and interest to my outfits. Instead of buying a new scarf, I recommend just buying a vintage men’s necktie and just wrapping it around your neck, like so. Maybe alter the necktie by adding a little fringe as seen below.
I’m interested in these Everlane pants. They look like great everyday basics.
This fall I want to splurge on socks. And since I splurge on basically nothing this is really saying something. They have to be just right. These two below fit the bill. The pink socks on the left say – “My favorite salad is wine.” The photo is from an adorable Instagram account called ChinaTownPretty. The account was created to celebrate the street style of seniors living (and grocery shopping) in SF Chinatown. You should definitely follow. The photo below on the right is from The Sartorialist. It is from the Fall 2011 Dries Van Noten runway show. These pairs of socks inspire me to buy socks that add a little color or pattern and humor to my wardrobe. Just something that would make yourself or someone else smile when you sit down and cross your legs.
I need to wear comfortable shoes that I can walk in. I want a pair as seen in the image below on the right. I can’t find them anywhere. Zappos offers a couple of pairs that are kinda cool. I’ll probably keep looking.
What are you thinking of adding to your fall wardrobe?
The holiday season is probably the least sustainable time of the year. My recovergirl reaction to that is to shop for local, handmade, sustainably designed items, and/or up-cycled or vintage versions of things I desire.
Like I’ve said before my list wish is not a hint to anyone in my family. These are things that I will probably get around to getting for myself in the future if my budget allows. Here goes:
A Serpent and Bow bra and underpants set. I’m so inspired by this designer and her work. You need to follow her on Instagram.
I just want gold brogues. I can’t explain it. These ones shown are actually for kids. I don’t like any of the adult versions on the market — too stiff looking. I want a comfy version. I may try to find a beat-up pair of old Doc Martins and paint them gold and then add a new pair of laces in a pop color.
I hope you enjoyed my list and are inspired to think more sustainably when shopping this holiday season.
