What I Want(ed) for Fall (In No Particular Order)…

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.

5. Leggings

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!!!!!!

9. Sequins/metallic

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.

11. Vests

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.
