Faux Expectations

asos fur 4

When I ordered this faux fur coat from ASOS online, I had high expectations. Online shopping and I have a love hate relationship because I am more of an in store shopping kinda girl. Online shopping seemed to get one over on me yet again when my initial try-on of this coat didn’t live up to said expectations….because more of a Chewbaca vibe ensued. C’mon I have seven brothers, I know who Chewbaca is. In fact, I can’t tell you how much time I spent in front of the mirror trying to create twin Princess Leia buns with my never long enough hair as a little girl. The good news is after trying to make this coat happen for the third or fourth time, it has finally grown on me – chewbaca vibes and all. (This below freezing weather doesn’t hurt either..)

what i want

1.  Michele Sports Sail Large Dial Watch : Gold watch with a navy face has been my obsession for a while now. It’s about time I invest in one.

2. Clare V. Haircalf Flat Clutch: Fur everything, please.

3. Miu Miu Suede Wedge Sandals: I would wear these wedges with every single thing in my wardrobe.

4. Raen “Remmy” in Cobalt : If you have been following my blog, you can see me sporting these Raen sunglasses in champagne crystal more often than not. I am a big fan of these light weight sunglasses. Why not get them in blue as well?

5. Nasty Gal “The Big Easy Satin Top”: I love the high/low silhouette of this oversized Satin top.
