This is a test.

Autumn Wishlist


1) Jack by BB Dakota Morris Sweater: This fall, I've been attracted to thick knit, shawl collar cardigans. They're cozy, on cooler days they can be worn as a jacket, and they seem to pull an entire "look" together without much effort. I'm a big fan of BB Dakota and this type of sweater for full bust gals.

2) BiuBiu Amsterdam Purple: I haven't gotten a chance to try BiuBiu out for myself yet, but I've heard nothing but good things about this Polish company that specializes in tops and dresses for hourglass figures. Lately, I've been buying slouchy off-the-shoulder knits, but I could definitely use something in my closet that was snug around my waist. I have a sneaking suspicion that this plum color would be flattering too.

3) eShakti Peplum Ponte Knit Top: Meet your new online obsession. eShakti will customize any garment on their website to your exact measurements, they'll alter design details on your request, and they accept returns. Mind. Blown. I recently received a dress from them and it was gorgeous (review coming soon!). Since I've been struggling to find a peplum top that doesn't squeeze me strangely, I thought this adorable teal one would be a great option for the colder temperatures.

4) DD Atelier Wool Coat: I think this is something fashion magazines call an "investment piece". While $316 is a little outside of my price range, when you break it down to cost-per-wear, this coat is a bargain. I can easily see myself wearing this now and in twenty five years. With a timeless, elegant design and a more specialized fit, I doubt there will be another coat this season that tempts me as much as this one.

5) J. Crew Pixie Pant: Recommended by several popular Youtube bloggers, the Pixie pant has been on the top of my wishlist for a while now. I almost bought a seriously marked down pair at an outlet in July, but now I'm glad I waited. J.Crew launched this style in a navy and grey, as well as the classic black. I can't wait to get my grubby mitts on a pair of these classic (hip-and-butt flattering!) pants.

6) Nordstorm Cashmere & Silk Scarf: This is a creed I live by: the bigger my scarf is, the smaller my boobs look. People, it's a fact. I like my scarfs soft, with a little pattern, a lot of volume, and in a nice shade against my pale yellow skin. This fine blend checks off all my requirements for under $100.

7) Modcloth Verdant It Be Lovely? Earrings: As I've said before, I'm a big-earrings-kinda gal. However, I prefer my dramatic dangles to be romantic and refined. I also believe that long earrings elongate my circular facial structure, but let's not get too nitty gritty. These are just so. damn. pretty.

8) Pepperberry Abstract Jersey Print Dress:While this dress is much longer than I usually like, I've seen photos of it on busty non-models and I've fallen in love with it's flattering cut. On closer inspection, this dress contains a lot of details I adore: a tie at the neck, ruching on the sleeves, and a subtle, feminine print. Wallet, where did you get to?

9) Doc Martens Floral 1460 Boots: Technically, I was born in the eighties, but my heart will always belong to the 90s. So, when I saw these on Urban Outfitters, I started hyperventilating with the anticipation of ownership. They brought me back! I totally had a pair of these and wore them with leggings every day of elementary school. Really, my style hasn't changed much since then...

10) PZI Jeans Fuze Classic Skinny Jeans: I realize this may be crazy, but skinny jeans are totally warmer in the winter! You can tuck them into big, wooly socks and thick boots. With straight or flare ends, I always struggle with how to care for them when there's a foot of snow outside. To ready myself for chilly autumnal walks into town, I'm lusting after these curvy-friendly skinnies.

11) Bait Footwear Hilda: Bait Footwear is a brand I just discovered (on Instagram no less!) and I'm COMPLETELY OBSESSED. I could easily buy every style they stock and I'm obnoxiously picky about my footwear. Ask my poor mother who's bought a billion different pairs for me in the last decade. I'm annoying about shoes. However, Bait is number one in my heart. Their styles are retro-inspired, feminine, and come in a ton of unexpected, fun colors. The Hilda stands out as a shoe design I've never quite seen before. Light mauve booties? Somehow it doesn't sound like it should work, but boy, it does for me.

  1. Went to the eShakti website and fell in love with everything! Custom sizes at low prices! Shattered when I read they don't ship to Australia. Do you know if they have any plans to introduce world wide shipping?
