Add to Wishlist

Starting January 1, I self-imposed a shopping fast.  60 days.  Zero clothes shopping.  While that might not sound tough for some, we're talking about forgoing Net-a-Porter's semi-annual sale.  You'd be hard pressed to find any clotheshorse who would willingly give up Alexander Wang 70% off -just ask the woman in line at his sample sale in New York last summer who declared it "the best day of [her] life."  Barring two minor slip ups (Stanford Shopping Center, why do you tempt me so?), I've been okay thus far.  What's helping me through this trying time?  Creating wishlists and lots of them.  It's the closest thing to "add to shopping cart" and I know that for at least the 30 minutes the website reserves the items, everything is all mine.  And with that, I'm bringing what's currently on my sartorial wishlist.

1. LPD New York T-shirt: A street-style staple, the LPD T-shirt comes printed with the designer's last name and birth year.  Now, if only I could actually afford Phoebe Philo's Céline.
 2. Diptyque Roses candle: Dipytuqe, enough said.
3. Zara Faux Leather Skort: Every season has the "it" item -Fendi buggies, Isabel Marant sneaker wedges, logo-emblazoned Kenzo sweatshirts, you name it.  But it's not so often that the "it" item is actually affordable.  Cue the Zara skort, an instant bestseller you were guaranteed to see every few blocks in New York last summer.  Now they've released a faux leather version, which instantly ups its cool factor.
4. Alexander Wang Boots: Wang boots on sale? Yes, please. 
5. Carven Pleated Jersey Dress: For the inevitable foray into the workplace.
6. Illesteva Mirrored Sunglasses: Winter won't seem so bad if you have these on.
