Wish List: Aldo Accessories

I love browsing online and “shopping” – AKA I fill the cart with everything I want and then close the browser and don’t actually purchase anything. Sigh. However, I do usually bookmark the pages of the stuff I like and half the time when I go back through this “wish list” lots of the items are no longer available. Which I guess is a good thing, at least for my wallet anyways.

My most recent browse & bookmark session was on Aldo – specifically accessories. I love bundling up with scarves in the Fall/Winter time and like having not only an assortment of colours & prints but a variety of styles as well. For example; even if I have a circle scarf in a dark green, I feel the need to also have a regular scarf in the same colour. But I’m sure most girls do this, right? And I immediately fell in love with this bag as soon as I saw it. The structure of it and gold buckle detail helps make the bag. Although I prefer it in the black (but I don’t really need another black bag) the bone is also a great neutral tone and can transition well into the Springtime!

These are the few items that are currently on my wish list:

aldoacc1) FIDELA head wrap $12

2) ELEN turban $15

3) JAN circle scarf $25

4) GRAMERCY bag $50

Fall Trends: Pretty Pastels

Now is the time of year to snag that perfect new coat for Fall. However, there’s a bit of a twist to the trend this season: the colour. Normally when we see pastels we think of Spring time, like Easter. It’s been spotted on various runway shows like Celine, Proenza Schouler, Emilio Pucci, Louis Vuitton & Gucci to name a few. The most popular colour being seen is pink but there’s also yellow, blue & lavender. Seriously, just screams Easter right?

Anyways, I don’t think I’ll be buying into this particular trend this season simply because I personally don’t like to wear pastels. I rarely ever wear pink and if I do it has to be a dark pink. On the contrary though I think that these coats are a fun & girlie piece that you can challenge yourself with to see how many ways it can be styled. This trend seems to be taking it’s sweet time to hit the sites online but here are a few pretty pink coats I’ve come across!
