Winter Wishlist

The signs of fall in New Orleans have barely just arrived, and already, I find myself wishing for winter.  You see, yesterday, I met a friend at the mall after work.  After finding the perfect Steve Madden booties to pair with a few new sweater dresses she recently added to her closet, we thought we'd stroll around and see what other goodies there were in store for us.

Somewhere between this fabulous and perfectly holiday party appropriate ultra-mini lace tulip skirt

And this gorgeous silk and lace shell that would look tres chic under a fitted velvet blazer

I spotted the most amazing black coat I have seen with my very own eyes.  Maybe that's a bit dramatic, but seriously, it has all the elements that I admire in well designed women's outerwear.  It is simple and stylish and has a bit of whimsy in the details.  I love that it is single breasted, that it has straight lines, but that it has the added touch of femininity in the rouching at the waist.  Pure perfection...

It might have to sit on my wishlist for a while though because we're about to make a very VERY big purchase.  I can't wait to share all of the details with you really soon!!!


  1. J. Crew is my weakness! I love their catalogs and how they style everything. I'm hitting up Lakeside tomorrow, hopefully I'll find something good!

  2. The coat is fabulous! Can't wait to hear about the BIG purchase!!
