Belle's B-Day Wish List: Part I

May 24, 2010

As you might imagine, I do a lot of window shopping on the Interwebs.  And very often, I find items that I would love to post on the blog, but they don’t fit neatly into a post.  Thus, I thought that since my birthday is happening very soon, I would post them as a kind of birthday present wish list.  Sure, it’s unlikely that anyone will buy these things for me, but a girl can hope (wink, wink—nudge, nudge—hint,hint).

Since I was in junior high, I’ve been obsessed with jackets.  Next to dresses, they are my favorite item of clothing.  Here are some of the perfectly tailored pieces that make my heart go pitter-pat.

Silk Blend Ruffle Jacket (TheOutnet, $598.50)

It’s pink and it’s Valentino; what else is there to explain?

Vivienne Westwood Portrait Collar Jacket (TheOutnet, $615)

The detailing, the pleating, the construction, the crazy portrait collar, I want it all.  And since it’s a delicate grey pinstripe, this suit/jacket would be totally appropriate for the Hill.

Hanami Cropped Jacket (Anthropologie, $88)

Delicate and pretty, this floral eyelet jacket is far more stylish than its price point might indicate.  I’m also obsessed with the pale pink color for summertime.

Donna Karan Tulle Jacket (Net-a-Porter, $2,695)

I posted this jacket months ago, but I’m still hopelessly in love with it.  Mixing the rigid shape of a tailores hacket with the soft, airy appeal of tulle is just genius.

Vince Asymmetrical Jacket (ShopBop, $945)

This kidskin jacket is perfect for the warm weather months.  It adds a little rocker chic to summer dresses and pencil skirts if you want to take a risk with your office attire.

My Best Amazon Fashion Finds

One of the hallmarks of being middle-aged is buying your clothing in the same place you buy your groceries. For some people it’s Costco, for others it’s Target, for me, it’s Amazon. Yesterday, I opened a box that contained a bag of dog treats, gummy candy, a tin of olive oil and a dress. So […]

How I Combat Stink (and Stress Sweat)

It’s happened to all of us: You’re walking into a meeting and you catch a whiff of something. A slight odor. A bad smell. And you wonder, “Is that me?” You want to surreptitiously check that that unsavory aroma isn’t you, but you can’t do that here. So you just keep your arms at your […]

If the pandemic did one thing for women, it brought back sweatpants as acceptable attire. But then, fashion decided that we couldn’t wear regular sweat pants, we needed to wear fancy sweat pants. And while it would be easy to disparage the ideal of luxury sweatpants made for chic, casual wear…have you felt how soft […]

WFH Outfit: Denim and Black

Does anyone really know how to dress for a rainy February? It’s not winter. It’s not spring. Sweaters seem heavy. Just a shirt feels like you’ll be cold. It’s a puzzle.
