Just found this draft as I started categorizing blog posts… thought I’d still share.
1. Plaid pants/skirt
I doubted this one would be big when it sprung up last year, but it turns out I love it. I spotted a great plaid trench at T.J. Maxx over the weekend. Don’t be shocked if you see me with plaid pants, jacket, skirt, something…
2. Striped blazer
OK, so admittedly – I LOVE stripes and blazers. So this is no surprise to anyone that knows my uniform of navy & white and red & white striped shirts. Bring on more yacht wear in the shrunken blazer format, please.
3. Bib necklace
I love all jewels, especially the really large pieces of the costume variety. So it is no surprise that ya’ girl is DYING for a bib necklace. This one below is hot but JUST for inspiration. You KNOW I’m too cheap to drop 8 bills on it… But damn it’s fly. Here’s to hoping it ends up in the T.J. Maxx jewelry section for $150 or less…
4. Rocker chic
I must admit I love this look (think Rihanna’s look almost any day.) I have several pieces already – studded dog collar anyone? But I want to get a few more pieces to toughen up my usual look.
Yes I have some already. Yes, I have thighs and a lil’ bit of boo-tay. Yes, I grew up in them. Yes, I want some more. No, I will not wear them all day, everyday like LiLo. (I still love you girl.) And I won’t be wearing the liquid variety but instead whipping out my leather pants – yes, you KNOW I have leather pants. And I am getting some more leggings in my life…
6. Cute, shrunken cardigan
Yes, I am STILL dying for Amy’s weekend catch – the fly purple cardigan. So I feel like I need one. I know the 34Gs may make it tricky, but here’s to hoping it can work out for me…
7. Leopard trench
I love Amy for getting me the zebra print trench that I was DYING for back in 2008. Ever since, I’ve also wanted to scoop up a leopard print version too. Here is my chance – the animal print trench continues to rock and becomes a full-on CLASSIC (per Bazaar magazine September 2009.) Yay for girls like me who LOVE all things animal print!
8. Tights, tights, tights
I usually boycott skirts in winter. Then again, I used to travel to work in winter to really Frozen Tundra-esque places like Who-knows-where-ville, PA; Holland, MI; Fort Lee, NJ; and Milwaukee, WI.
Now that I got a straight gig in good old Georgia, I think I can tolerate skirts in winter with the help of lots and lots of tights. Since the trend seems never-ending, I already have green and purple and navy and black but I think I need even more colors! T.J. Maxx here I come!!!!!!
Fall 2009 trends are easier for me. I have a crap load of sequined pieces. (Forgive me, my Ganny’s a jazz singer so I grew up with the stuff and still love it.) But I really want a metallic jacket or pencil skirt. Or both. Immediately!
10. Hot pink cosmetics
OK, I admit it. The only pink cosmetic I wear is Rosebud Salve. And that doesn’t even show up as pink. But I am really contemplating trying out some hot pink lips (a bit of a stretch) and/or blush (not so much of a stretch because I already wear crazy bright blush with my subdued makeup each day.) And there is some black liquid liner just waiting for me to get un-scared… My sister-in-law Taylor would be proud – she is the QUEEN of black liquid liner.
I already love vests, so I am gonna stock up on the ones that are shaped well (read: nipped in at the waist) before they go off trend. And I really think I need a bold plaid or striped one to get myself started snatching them up for fall.
