I know there is a huge difference between want and need. Many times I catch myself making statements such as, “that skirt needs to be in my closet.”
Hello, no it doesn’t. I would like it to be there. That is a want.
I have written before about my lack of clothes for cold weather. Now that I no longer spend the majority of my working hours in my house writing scripts, I really need to step up my fall/winter wardrobe. I cannot meet with clients or vendors looking bananas.
Thank god I live in a city that is not as casual as Los Angeles. If I wear a dress or a skirt to a meeting in Rome, nobody asks me why am I so dressed up. Sometimes, wait for it, I even wear thigh-high stockings!
There are many things I would like to purchase this year but have narrowed down the list to five.
Long leather gloves.
I’m thinking black or chocolate brown. Why does Olivia Pope look so sad here?
Ankle boots with heels that can handle cobblestone streets.
I have a pair of ankle boots with a narrow heel. They have been destroyed. RIP.
Love the cut of this dress from J. Crew.
A camel hair coat.
i do need a new winter cloth coat but I think I can get another season out of my current one. This will go in the want column. Max Mara’s coats are classic.
Last but not least, I do need a short winter sports jacket. I look like the Michelin Tire Man in puffy jackets. I like the lines of this one.
What’s on your list?
