I will fully admit- I first saw this on Franish, who is possibly one of the most organised people I’ve ever seen! I am sort of bad for seeing something on a blog or a store site, and then thinking, that would look great in my wardrobe! So, this is my attempt to take a full catalogue of my wardrobe, and really decide what items I would like long term. This is arranged by short term (2016) and long term (anywhere from 2-10 years).
–Hunter Tour Rainboots in Red– Est. $200 CAD
I didn’t want to admit it, but regular hunters are heavy in a suitcase. While I wouldn’t want to use Tour boots all of the time, they would be incredibly helpful on trips to see M in Washington, and to Ireland/UK. I will be setting money aside for these, hopefully they come back in stock in a 6.
–Bloch Prima Ballerina Flat in Black– Est $250 CAD
Bloch (and most dance companies) don’t have sales often, but I will keep my eye out. These would be the ideal black flats, but I will most likely start with a pair from Aldo.
–Tory Burch Minnie Travel Flats (Red or Blue)- Est. $400 CAD
I think these look fantastic, but until the Canadian dollar is stronger or there is a crazy sale, these will be far off in the future, unfortunately! They certainly look striking!
–L.K. Bennett Samira Pump in Nude– Est. $500 CAD
Another item waiting for the market to change, or a sale! I have noticed L.K. Bennett shops at airports, which often have more sales, so I will keep an eye out when travelling. However, these are an investment piece that I will gladly wait until I am a financial position to acquire these.
– 2-in-1 Parka in Mesculen Green-Est. $130 CAD
I absolutely love the Gap now. This would be a great neutral coat for Spring/Fall here in Winnipeg, and for all of my travels. I often get 35 or 40% coupons from the Gap, I need to save and wait for one of those that works on outerware!
-Half and three quarter sleeve blouses in red, green, or blue- Est. $80 CAD (total)
-Floral print blouses- Est. $60
-Blue Duffle Coat, á la Paddington Bear- Est. $400 CAD
-Kate Spade Cardigan- Est. $200 CAD
I love these cardigans, but not currently in a position to spend $225 USD on a cardigan. Perhaps in the future I will catch a sale in my size!
-Black Cashmere Sweater- Est. $300 CAD
Wonderful for a work wardrobe
–Burberry Short Double Wool Twill Trench Coat– Est $2000 CAD
This is clearly an investment piece that I am putting a timeline of 10-15 years on (seriously, it’s Burberry.)
–Stripe in Lucky Skirt in Black and White– Est. $60 CAD
I will wait until this goes on sale again, and then nab it! Wonderful for work or casual, spring, summer, fall, or winter.
-Red Wool Plaid Skirt (no slit)- Est. $150 CAD
-Red Sheath Dress- Est. $80-100 CAD
I find sheath dresses to be a flattering shape for me, and red is still my favourite colour! This might end up being a long-term search, as it doesn’t look like sheath dresses are “in” at the moment.
-Kate Spade Dress in Red
-Nothing as of right now!
–Kate Spade Julia Street Stripe Lyla Weekender– Est. $550 CAD
–Mulberry Bayswater in Black Natural Leather with Brass– Est. $2,000 CAD
Another very long term investment piece for down the road! In the meantime, I plan on educating myself on handbags more so that I know what to look for!
What is your wardrobe strategy?? Do you keep a running list like this, or just shop when you feel like and see what catches your eye?? And please let me know if you have spotted any of these items!
