Wardrobe Wish List: Felina: Harlow Full Busted Demi Bra

I have cried more times in the bra aisle than any human ever should. You name the store, I’ve probably been reduced to tears: H&M, Target, Victoria’s Secret (this could go on for a while). I’ve spent years trying to understand why all the beautiful bras halt at a size B.

Wardrobe Wish List: Lipstick Rosette Lace Tank

It’s not easy choosing a shirt to wear out on a Saturday night. Maybe it doesn’t take you as long as it takes me, but I always try to match my ensemble based on the elements of the evening. Is this a night with the girls or the guys? Bar or club? Dinner or just drinks?

Wardrobe Wish List: Sally Hansen Salon Effects

I have a firm belief that it’s impossible to look polished without nail polish. It’s the final accessory to an outfit that not only completes a look, but makes you look utterly put together. It’s so important that it of course slips my mind until the last minute all the time.

Wardrobe Wish List: TOMS Black Women’s Glitters

I hate to admit it, but I totally missed the TOMS boat last season. I remember walking around in my neighborhood, and noticing every girl who walked by was wearing them, which was surprising to me because the first time I saw someone wearing them I thought they were vintage.

Wardrobe Wish List: Norma Kamali Bill Swim Suit

I’m sure swimsuit shopping is the last thing on your mind right now. You usually don’t expect to think about the most horrible time of the year so close to the most wonderful time of the year. Until that last minute vacation invite pops up, and you realize you need to find a suit in the middle of a blizzard.

Wardrobe Wish List: Jessica McClintock Mini Bark Embossed Bag

Let’s be honest, money stored in your cleavage is not sexy. What comes next…your lip gloss, cell phone, camera? (You gotta be packing some major weight up there to store all that.) When your skinny jeans pockets are so tight and small that they’re non-existent, don’t be tempted to store things where you think no one will see.

Wardrobe Wish List: Leg Avenue Silver Glitter Peep Toe Pumps

Which is more irrational: the decision to wear 5-inch heels in the snow, slush and ice, or that slinky top without a coat because you don’t want to hold one at the party? The bigger question is: who cares? Because frostbite doesn't hurt so much after you've had a couple cocktails, right?

Wardrobe Wish List: Mixit Multi Crystal Bib Necklace

Tis the season of endless holiday parties and panicking about not having anything to wear to them. Just because it’s the holidays doesn’t mean you have to wear a red or green ensemble (unless you’re attending the infamous “Ugly Sweater” party) and tacky holiday themed accessories. Please put those snowman earrings away now. And by away, I mean in the garbage.

Wardrobe Wish List: Sperry Top-Sider Bayshore Tall Boot [Plus a Giveaway!]

I’ll never forget the year that Uggs first became popular, also known as the year that everyone on campus started to look like the science school had cloned humans. Maybe you remember the trend from bottom to top: It started with the tan (salt-stained) Uggs, and the black leggings, and the oversized shirt-dress.

Wardrobe Wish List: Knit Ear Warmer Flower Headband

Let’s be honest, our main concerns in the winter are not just staying warm, but also trying to avoid hypothermia without having to resort to the Michelin Man look.

Wardrobe Wish List: Anthropologie Gams Games Tights

I’ve been afraid of patterned tights since Gossip Girl made them such a trend. They look a tad bit tricky to pull off, which so makes me want to be the one who can pull them off perfectly.

Wardrobe Wish List: Lucky Brand Black Crystal Snake Ring

’m pining over something a little different this week. It’s a little outside my comfort zone, and that’s exactly why I’m in love. It’s not a plunging neckline or a skimpy skirt, it’s actually a super cool ring.

Wardrobe Wish List: Body Central Curvey Keyhole Tee

I’m almost positive that I am not the only woman who wants to accent my assets and disguise my least favorite attributes. There’s no point in buying clothes that don’t make you feel fantastic - they should show what you want to show while smoothing out any imperfections (hint hint - last week’s waist belt).

Wardrobe Wish List: AE Skinny Braided Waist Belt

The quintessential waist belt was not created to hold anything up. It doesn’t fit into loops, it offers no form of support, it’s not durable and it doesn’t save the world from your plumber's crack. So what does this basic wardrobe staple do for you?

Wardrobe Wish List: Fumblin’ Foe Sequin Bustier Cami

I survived most of my years in college by borrowing clothes. Most weekends I had another girl’s shirt on my back because I never had any “going out clothes” or the pocket change to spare on them. But some girls had closets and dressers and hampers full of amazing shirts that, after a few drinks, they were always willing to share.

Wardrobe Wish List: VS Liquid Leggings

Victoria's Secret knows sexy - there’s no doubting that. But they also know that you don’t need to be in nothing but your $50 bra to feel sexy; all you need is this pair of leggings.

Wardrobe Wish List: Steve Madden Wyndi Lace Up Wedges

I’m not a girl who’s skilled enough to wear heels. I’m not sure what the problem is, but every attempt at stiletto sex kitten I’ve ever made has resulted in scars of the physical and emotional nature.

Wardrobe Wish List: American Eagle Cropped Military Cardigan

I admit it: I'm a slave to trends. As much as I’d rather be a trendsetter (like Nicole Richie, not Lady Gaga), I’m regretfully a complete lemming. It’s not that I’m not a risk taker, more so that I’ve been completely brainwashed by the fashion industry (like when professors insist you need to read the text to pass) to like what’s available.

Wardrobe Wish List: A-Line Louis Vuitton Dress

I’m not entirely sure how Louis Vuitton does it, but the brand is fantastic at making women look sophisticated and chic while still flaunting a dangerously low neckline. (I guess that's why they can get away with charging 3 months rent for a shirt....) I have been having borderline inappropriate dreams about praise this dress from the LV Fall 2010 collection

Wardrobe Wish List: Michael Kors Camel Coat

September marks that fine time of year when I finally feel it’s socially acceptable to implement all the fashion trends I learned during fall Fashion Week without soaking them in August sweat stains. I watched the shows, I made mental notes, and I’m ready to sacrifice a heat stroke and a paycheck if the cool of Autumn decides to be fashionably late this year.
