You may remember a few posts ago, I mused on what should/could become some new additions to my fall wardrobe. Well, I have a bit of an update to report - an addition to the list, and something that has been checked off.
The addition: suede over-the-knee boots. I read an article on Who What Wear about the Saint Laurent Babies boots and instantly fell in love. Well, not with the price tag. So my quest has begun to find reasonably priced dupes, and right now my eye is on the Steve Madden Gorgeous boots that are now on pre-order on their site. I'm a bit wary of the height of the heel, so I think I'll try to track these down in-store for a try-on. There's also a version by Zara, but I don't think they go quite "over" the knee as much as I would like... ah the struggle of not wanting to spend $1000+ on a pair of boots...
The AllSaints Addison jacket is still tops on my list. Again, something that requires a try-on, so I'm hoping to make my way to their store at Toronto's Yorkdale shopping centre in the near future. I know, it's a long way to go for a jacket... but a nice Toronto trip is always a good idea :)
As for that striped dress... it's more to demonstrate my ideal outfit using the two pieces I'm currently lusting after the most. It's Valentino and stupid expensive, but so adorable.
So the item I have crossed off my list: high waisted black pants. Unsurprisingly, I found my perfect pair at Aritzia. The Gustav pant is amazing.
This whole pant obsession is thanks to a little movie I saw called Begin Again with Keira Knightley and Mark Ruffalo (<3). Her pants and outfits were always on point, especially a look featuring a high waisted loose trouser such as this. I had to replicate it.
Have you managed to check anything off your fall wishlist yet? I find myself adding more and more with every September issue magazine I flip through... and all these Labour Day sales sure aren't helping things!
