These wishlist posts usually end up being more of a "what am I going to buy for myself?" thing but it's fun to lay everything out and figure out what I really want this season. My birthday is in 10 days (YAY) but I've been too busy working to really think about it. I've been using Luvocracy and Pinterest to catalog things I've been wanting to buy... I haven't actually shopped for myself in a while so this actually feels kind of nice.
  1. True&Co.'s holiday shop has finally launched! There you go, my blood, sweat, and tears these past few months. I've been trying to stop myself from buying everything but I may have to cave for these shorts (and the matching bra). Can't wait to relax, mostly because I haven't caught a break in months...
  2. I've been pining over this bra since we first got a sample in back in the summer. Eberjey's Matilda bralette comes in a close second.
  3. This bag has been on my wishlist for a while. Now that I have a new, more compact computer I don't have to limit myself to bulky backpacks!
  4. Sadly, my trusty Karen Walker sunglasses just broke. I think I can still fix them but for now I'm looking into a replacement pair. I tried on these Illesteva sunnies a week ago and was super tempted to buy them on the spot.
  5. I've been putting off buying basic black jeans for way too long. If I don't find these Rag & Bone jeans I've been thinking of getting either the Hudson Nico jeans or Paige's legging jeans.
  6. Great simple watch. Can't wait to get it in the mail!
  7. Today marks a year since I broke my old Nikon camera and it's about time I get a new one. I miss taking photos of things other than outfits and I will admit that I've been spoiled by my iPhone and Instagram. I hate borrowing my BF's bulky Canon DSLR and have really been needing my own. It's really taken a toll on my blog as well...
  8. I work 10-12 hours a day in front of a computer so I need to start wearing glasses more or else my contacts get too dry. Tried these on at a Bonlook popup a few weeks ago and met the cofounder Melanie!
  9. Label me a typical Isabel Marant-obsessed blogger but I still want these damn boots. They're easy, they're simple, and I need to wear something other than my Acne Pistol boots every damn day.
  10. The best scarf EVER. I was there for the beginning stages of that product and can't wait to get my own. Trying really hard to not buy them in more than one color. Join Everlane here.
  11. Saw this in person on Friday and ugh. I'll probably wait until it goes on sale or I'll find a more affordable alternative.
  12. I've been avoiding buying a bike for two years since I moved to SF. I actually live right off the Wiggle and should be biking to work but I just need that extra push to get me on the road. My office is a lot closer to my house than my old one by AT&T Park so now's the time!
A couple extras that didn't make the collage (and probably won't happen, except maybe MMG? ANYONE?):
  1. Joie Lexandra suede jacket in red: a bit unrealistic but I love red too much. Waiting for it to go on sale.
  2. Tickets to MMG Tour in San Jose: RICKY ROZAY. The day after my birthday. HEY.
  3. CdG Play striped shirt in black and white: price is ridiculous but whatever. It's cute.
  4. Eberjey Sleep Chic PJ top and pants: another purchase at work that I can't seem to justify but am really close to buying because I've been around it for so long. Help?
  5. Clare Vivier clutch in tan: one day I'll remember to get this. One day...

all work, some play

Uniqlo oxford shirt, Theory shorts, Converse high tops, bag c/o Rebecca Minkoff, Nixon watch, Mociun ring, Vintage sunglasses

Busy, busy month. I haven't been up to much other than working nonstop in preparation of True&Co.'s holiday shop which is launching this week. These photos were actually taken after getting brunch at Starbelly right before going into the office to work on a Sunday. Big things are happening over here... in addition to launching our new shop we just moved into a new office last week! Somehow I've been roped into with planning decor around the new space in addition to designing emails, outfit collages, social media, etc. I want to make a Pinterest board for inspiration but there isn't enough time in the day, ugh. Anyone looking for an internship in SF? Email me, seriously.

Btw, my promo code still works if anyone is interested. We'll be offering sleepwear and other loungewear essential in our new shop but our bra boxes will still be available! We just started carrying wireless bralettes from brands like Eberjey and Honeydew and will have lots more in stock in the new shop.

It's currently super chilly in SF so it's weird to be posting these photos where I'm wearing shorts in November! Last week we went from 80 degree weather to two days of rain. When Uniqlo opened in SF I ended up buying a bunch of these great basic cotton oxfords... I can't stop wearing them in different outfit variations. I posted this outfit over on Chictopia after being contacted about their current contest with Cotton Inc. Go check it out!

One more thing... have you checked out Luvocracy yet? I've been using it for miscellaneous things to stay organized like wardrobe planning this season, decor for the new office, etc. It's kind of like Pinterest meets Amazon with a more personal twist... needless to say, I've been addicted. I'm working on a big wishlist/essentials post for this week, stay tuned!
