Happy Friday! Today, I want to talk about things I need would like to add to my closet. How is this different from every other Weekend Shortlist? It … well … um … let’s just get started, shall we?

Yellow Sandals

Little known fact: while I have a lot of shoes (42 pairs at last count), I don’t actually own many sandals – just 2 pairs, both bought within the last 6 months. Now, I’m still working on paring down my wardrobe, so I’m not looking to go sandal-crazy or anything, but one more pair would be nice. A yellow pair, to be precise. Don’t ask me why the sudden obsession with yellow footwear. (Though reading Caitlin Moran’s How To Be a Woman might have something to do with it – she writes that everyone should have a pair of yellow shoes.) I will tell you this: finding yellow shoes, and specifically sandals, is very, very difficult. I mean, nothing is impossible if you have an eBay account, but it ain’t easy either. I like the look of the Miz Mooz pair above, which I’ve found in my size but a little out of my budget. I also like the look of the J. Crew pair below.

Basically, I don’t really know what I want, but as long as it’s yellow and doesn’t come with crazy high heels, I’m sold. If you guys have suggestions, shoot them my way.

Floral Skirt

As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I’m bidding adieu to my thrifted floral skirt. Because I cannot allow the floral levels in my closet to dip even slightly, I am (of course) looking for a replacement. My first pick: the Phosphorescence skirt above. Some Google digging informed me that it went down to $20 on clearance way back in the day, which makes me a little bit reluctant to pay the eBay prices people are asking these days. Contributing to my reticence, I haven’t had the best luck with Anthro skirts bought off eBay. (Sizing issues, sigh.) So, tell me: do you think it’s worth, say, $60 or so?

I also have my eye on this skirt (also from Anthro) thanks to the stylish Lisa at Respect The Shoes. Who knew I liked orange so much?

And then, there is also this:

Thanks to my enabler (aka the lovely lady behind Spend Save Splurge) who brought it to my attention because she knows my Kryptonite. Flowers and birds? Done.

Pendant Necklace

So, I love my House of Harlow pendant, but I want more. Pendants, that is. I really, really want a Lulu Frost one, but it’s definitely not in the cards budget. Heck, Lulu Frost for J. Crew is not in the budget. I know I should be looking at Etsy, but I just can’t face 659 pages of necklaces to sort through, and I seem incapable of describing more specifically what I want. Art Deco-ish? Not overly bling-y? But, like, a little bit bling-y? Sigh.

I want Lulu Frost, dammit!

I could settle for this:

Have a great weekend!

4 Comments on Weekend Shortlist

  1. Personally I prefer the bird and the blossoms skirt over the one you’re hunting down ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Also, House of Harlow has surprisingly beautiful pieces! I have a ring from them and at first I couldn’t believe Nicole Ritchie was the designer.

  2. If you can track down the brands of the questionable Anthro skirts, I can tell you how the sizing runs.

    A friend of mine has a pair of yellow sandals that are neutral on top with yellow around the edges of the heel… they’re flats and from Sperry I think ? and Nine West ALWAYS has yellow sandals.

    • I was JUST at Nine West today! Wouldn’t you know it … no yellow sandals. Par for the course.

      I’ll just buy a large size, and be done. If they’re slightly too big, I’m okay with that. You wouldn’t be able to track down the skirts themselves, would you? ๐Ÿ˜‰
