Baggin' Out: Roxy Blue Bird Shoulder Bag

Roxy is a brand that I haven't really looked into for a while. They were popular when I was about 13, but then that popularity died off shortly thereafter. However, Roxy has recently reinvented itself, going for more of a hipster look than surfer chic. Along with this new branding, comes new handbags and one in particular has caught my eye!

Baggin' Out: Poppie Jones Lodge Wristlet

Fur-detail is huge this season, especially when it comes to purses, but I just can't bring myself to tote around a completely fur purse. I've yet to find one that doesn't look like some dead rodent on a string. However, I did find a cute little wristlet with fur-detail that I could definitely handle!

Fashion Porn: Lovely Lace

Every morning when I get off the subway to go to school, I have to walk right past Forever 21. And it's torture. School been in session for three weeks now, and there has been this super hot navy lace dress (I think it’s a dress, but you never know with that store...) every time I walk by. Seeing as I don’t REALLY need another dress (remember how I bought 3 in the spring?) I’ve been trying really hard not to go in and buy it in all its gorgeous, lacy glory.

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: ASOS Draped Dress

When you're on a budget you can't spend your money on just anything. You need items that are versatile, timeless and just plain pretty. And this beautiful dress from ASOS is all that and more. It is short enough and reveals just enough skin with its strapless design for hitting those clubs on Saturday night. Put on some sexy, strappy heels and you are ready to conquer the dance floor.

Wardrobe Wish List: H&M Velvet Sneakers

This past weekend, I went on a bit of a shopping spree with my friend (yes, I realize that I should be saving my money for more important things like, I don’t know, college and my future, but the mall was calling me!). We get there and what do I see? H&M, which was still under construction the last time I had been at the mall, had finally opened!

Wardrobe Wish List: Banana Republic Flannel Military Jacket

With fall here, it’s time to start adding new outerwear to your closet, and while many people argue that everyone needs a boyfriend blazer, I think everyone should be picking up this military jacket from Banana Republic.

Wardrobe Wish List: Freitag Bags

I first learned about Freitag, a Swiss company, and its products while flipping through a magazine during a flight. What kept me reading the whole article instead of turning up the volume on my headphones to whatever random movie was playing on that mini screen 10 rows up was how they made their products. This wasn't just another ho-hum ad for a travel bag; Freitag was born from something bigger.

Wardrobe Wish List: Adidas Gazelle Ballerina

I love flats. I practically wear them every day and to all occasions. I can’t even remember what I used to wear before I started slipping on those cute and comfy babies. Wait, yes I do. It was sneakers (love my Chucks), but I had to find something else after I realized that old school Nikes are not acceptable for all occasions. Like job interviews.

Wardrobe Wish List: Fragile Pull-On Pants

The pants look like jeans, but function somewhat like sweat pants in that you basically pull them on and button the single button at the top. They feature back pockets, faux front pockets, and no zipper, so you can imagine my surprise when I took them off the hanger and unbuttoned them in the dressing room to discover… pants that were not actually jeans.

Wardrobe Wish List: Roxy Dandy Lion Bag

Cute bathing suit? Check. Sunscreen? Check. Awesomely colorful beach bag? Hmm… Maybe not yet. Well, Roxy is here to save the day with its cleverly named bag, “Dandy Lion.”

Wardrobe Wish List: Floral Mini Skirt

Anything mini is cute. Mini cupcakes, mini poodles, mini lip balms… The list goes on and on, and this mini skirt is no exception. This simple piece features a chiffon layer with an adorable floral print over a layer of black and an elastic waistband.
