Fashion Friday: Window Shopping

Let’s do some window shopping today, shall we? It’s the first of the month and budgets are fresh, but then again, it is holiday season so I have a hard time shopping for myself at this time of year. But it’s always fun to dream!

Yesterday on our fashion blog, All Things Chic, Melissa posted about winter white coats. I am a sucker for winter white — it’s just so . . . I dunno . . . fresh and wintry! LOL. It reminds me of frost on the window panes and new-fallen show. I actually have a white puffy coat with a silver fur-lined hood that I adore. But her post is making me dream of a winter white dress coat.

Like this simple peacoat at Macy’s. (Incidentally, Macy’s is currently offering 20% off and free shipping with promo code PERFECT.)

Although it probably does make sense to go with a longer style, because of the long sweater trend these days. And I like the texture (and the price!!) on this one by Alfani.

Ooooh, but check out this plaid belted peacoat at White House Black Market.

I still would love to have a cape, and this Buckle Front Cape might just be the ticket. It’s on sale too. WOO!

I am quickly becoming a fan of Free People (the orange cowl neck sweater that I wear so much is by Free People). They definitely aren’t cheap, but they are made well and are really eye-catching. I always get compliments when I wear that sweater, and right now I’m drooling over this Beached Shell Cardigan. I just can’t decide which color I like best. I love how they pair the black with burnt orange jeans. Hmmmm…

Speaking of the burnt orange jeans, colored jeans are still on my wish list. I usually have to break into a new trend gently, so I doubt I’d go for red or orange for my first pair. I was thinking about a nice rich plum or bordeaux. Like these Joe’s Visionaire Skinny Jeans in Raisin Deep Purple. Too bad they are sold out of my size. At that price, I might be tempted!!

And these Gap Skinny Boot Corduroys are actually calling my name. I have gray corduroy skinny jeans but I like the look of this slim boot fit.

Wouldn’t they look great with this Organic Cotton Rib Zip Hoodie at Athleta?

I’m looking to replace my pink and gray sweater hoodie that I used to wear all the time until it shrunk up on me and the sleeves got too short (major pet peeve!) The sleeves on this one are nice and long and they even have the thumb holes for extremely cold days. I love plum and gray together but I can’t decide which combination I like better. The purple with gray from above? Or gray with purple?

I have a purple tank that would be perfect under this gray one, but I could wear the purple one with my gray cords. I guess is what they would call a 1st world problem, eh?

I’m also hankering for some really nice cashmere lined leather gloves. I’ve never had a pair, have you? These are gorgeous. I love the bow detail. And the price is surprisingly modest!

I’m thinking the tobacco color would go with just about everything. But wouldn’t the red be smashing with my gray peacoat? Hmmm…

Are you surprised there are no boots on my wish list? I suppose I have enough boots! If there is one thing I’d like to have but probably won’t invest in for fear I wouldn’t get enough wear out of them, it’s a pair of sleek black dress boots. Something like the Stuart Weitzman Jefe in black suede would do.

Hey, if you’re gonna window shop, you might as well do it in style, right? (And no, I would NEVER pay that for a pair of boots… not if I value my marriage, anyway!!) But seriously, aren’t you drooling?? Wouldn’t they be AMAZING with my purple dress??

So why don’t you join me?? What are you window shopping for today??
