Wednesday Wishlist: Apparel, Animals & Bags

For today’s Wednesday Wishlist, I have some really cute clothes, animal inspired goodies and structured satchels. I have such an enormous collection of dresses that I want to feature in this and upcoming Wednesday Wishlist features; but I decided to mix them up with other garments. I want to avoid sharing with you the same mistake I made with my closet. I have too many dresses and too few tops and bottoms to change it up a bit. Don’t get me wrong, I love wearing dresses. They are comfortable and make me feel fancy without much effort. However, it’s harder to change things up with dresses. Mixing and matching tops with skirts, pants, and shorts give you more flexibility with your collection of clothes. You can wear the same top with different bottoms for completely different looks without looking like you’re wearing a uniform. To get that unique wardrobe effect from dresses you need to buy many, many, many dresses. Of course, wearing sweaters with dresses and changing the accessories, such as tights, do add some variety; but not as much as separates. Still, I am addicted to dresses and I will continue to add to my stockpile. Nonetheless, I am making a conscious effort to add more top and bottom options to my closet. So with my rant out of the way, let’s get started :)

Coat With 60s Styling

This coat’s fit and flare silhouette makes it look like a dress. It has a strong military look with the double row of buttons and camo-ish green. If you decide to wear it over a dress, it will be like you’re wearing a dress within a dress. That sounds like a fantastic idea for a dress junkie like me :) It also looks like it is made of thick material that will actually keep you warm. I have coats that have thin lining and are pretty much just decorative.

Gifts For Your Pet Doggie

I must confess.  I am one of those people that owns a dog and considers them a family member.  I might go as far as comparing my doggie, Pancho, to your baby.  I know, bad me.
