wishlist version: me but more

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 - all from farfetch
Another page for my wishlist series. Things that I've been staring at lately. Of course I can't afford a sleeve of anything of these things, but it's a good jumping off point for hunting for things. I think I do a good enough job translating my dream wardrobe into my real life, though, and what is funny about this wishlist is that it's really just more expensive versions of what I already have in my closet. Just goes to show you what you have is more than enough. Here are some blog versions of these pieces for reference, you should be able to click the photos to see the original posts:

  

This shade of green is my favorite color, though I have only one item in it. Naturally I gravitated like a moth to a flame when I saw this ODLR dress. I think people who don't know me as well wouldn't think I'd like this dress -- or anything Oscar, but I do follow his collections pretty closely and one of my biggest vintage regrets is not swiping up this plaid ODLR dress when I should have. Still haunts me. 

Not a direct translation of the CDG half-jacket, but I think it is quite similar and it is also CDG so maybe I cheated but WHATEVER OK. 


I don't have $5000+ to spend on that perfect Valentino dress, but this vintage dress is one of my favorite items of clothing and was the first ever vintage dress I really obsessed over, and it was a gift from my favorite local vintage shop when I first started blogging. Meika (one of the owners) just had a birthday the other day, I've got to drop by and wish her a happy birthday. :) 

So what are you obsessing over right now? Any splurges lately?

i love your dress with all the ties! also the one with the black lace cravat! i love cravats! i like the green dress, too, but i'd like it a shade or too darker. green is one of my fave colours too, but i like really dark green for some reason.

i love how you can make all these cool things for less inspired by designer stuff! i really need to work on my making- things skills! you inspire me!

What are my obsessing over? Errm, the moonspoon saloon x buffalo collaboration shoes. Huge flatforms in the grey vulcano print but they're $425 and already sold out T_T so sad. I have not made any splurges lately, I'm too poor... although I'm turning 21 soon so maybe I'll get some cash. The Valentino dress is quite amazing btw.

Oh sorry, I forgot to mention, right now I am obsessing over harnesses, J.C cosmic litas, anything Rodarte for target, and the Rodarte knit tights from their Japanese horror film inspired collection.

I am loving that Commes Des Garcon piece, but I love your interpretation even better!

Lately, I've been craving some Yohji Yamamoto pieces and I've been stalking Ebay to see if I can find anything I might like (and in my size!).

It seems a wonderful potential to help every business to increase their productivity. Keep up the good piece of work, I believe that your blog is really useful and holds lots of wonderful information. I have to say, it's just an interesting and refreshing view on designer clothes given in your post.
