Confessions of a Shopaholic

I’m starting a new series: Confessions of a Shopaholic.  In part, it may be for self-preservation. Maybe if I get it out there into the universe – all of the stuff that I can’t stop drooling over – I’ll also get it out of my system.  That seems highly unlikely, but you know, it never hurts to try.  Remember that scene in the book/movie, Confessions of a Shopaholic, when the main character sits in a pile of her things, trying desperately to remember why she needed furry orange gloves, and twelve pencil skirts (or something like that)?  That can’t happen to me. My closet’s too small. (Blame fashion blogging.)

confessions of a shopaholic - spring-summer wishlist _

Zara Studded Sandals // Rose Pierre Sparkling Sea Cuff (I adore this bracelet!  It reminds me of The Little Mermaid. #awesome) // Mania Mania Ushci Ring (in silver or gold) // Fallon Jewelry Roswell Micro Spike Necklace // Karen Walker Sunglasses in Number One // Alexander Wang Leopard-Print Continental Wallet (Also swooning over the small version.) // Rebecca Minkoff Crisscross Weave Mini MAC Bag // Loeffler Randall Dree Woven Sandals // Valentino Lace Espadrilles (And these Jeffrey Campbell look-a-likes come in a pretty close second!) // Clover Canyon Metallic Leather Shorts (On Sale!) // Giada Forte Silk Shorts

I think this latest wishlist is inspired mostly by my upcoming trip to Europe (still taking suggestions, by the way.)  I’m trying to think minimalistic thoughts. I suggested to my husband that we bring only one luggage … as in, sharing a luggage … one piece of luggage. Needless to say, he laughed … a lot.

I want to bring a day-to-night lightweight purse (which is something I’m usually not very good at … my purses are the weight equivalent of a mac truck.)  I’m also trying to think light when it comes to clothing, not only because of the limited luggage space, but because Europe is seriously hot in June. I’ll be on the look-out for shorts, tank-tops, maxi dresses and skirts, because what kind of vacation would it be if I didn’t get to shop in the name of preparedness weeks (okay, months) in advance?



  1. Those zara studded heels are a must, I couldn’t decide over them for weeks, when I finally got them I wondered why it took me so long! Love!

    Howww cute are those metallic shorts?!
    I honestly think I need to watch that movie again and rethink my closet..eeK! haha!


  3. Love the Valentino espadrilles. But don’t buy too much because you will want to buy stuff on your trip!

  4. Ugh… I need it all! I mean, really I don’t, but… LOVE those metallic leather shorts! So cute, although maybe not super practical!

    Love the wishlist, doll! I’m a horrible packer- I always end up bringing my entire closet/contents of my vanity. :/ Hopefully you’ll fare better than me for your Europe trip! Lightweight in def the way to go.
