today is my first day of work. i must leave shortly and yet, here i sit, tap-tap-tapping away like a moron. i've just dragged everything out of my closet and onto my bedroom floor because i'm fed up with it all and can't bear to look at the clutter. i really must take a serious look at the things in there and try to purge again (hey alicia!!!). perhaps this can be a monthly thing. i know there are items in there i will not be wearing any time soon, yet i dread throwing them out and wishing i had not. and a moment later, i admit that if i need something badly enough, i will go out and find a new one that better suits my current aesthetic. dead fleurette, this is partly your fault. but i thank you for injecting this newly resurrected need for clarity in my space (again). oy....i really SHOULD get ready.

as true fall draws nearer, i yearn for more and more warm knits and comfy bits to ease the cool days and nights ahead. i'm quite the anti-femme with my non-stiletto policy. i quite like heels, y'know. just not on me. and not on the hill i have to climb to get to school. and not on my daily treks zig zagging across town. and not up and down stairs in class. but definitely into heels. anyway, here are all the items i can't afford but will try to find copies of so i can NOT spend a shitload of cash.

included (clockwise):

The Row oversized sweater;    Proenza Schouler Waffleknit sweatshirt;    GG750 Crewneck pullover;    Stella McCartney sweater;    3.1 Phillip Lim Double sleeve pullover;   Les Chiffoniers leather leggings;    Minnetonka back zipper boot;    No. 6 classic biker boots with shearling;    Acne short pistol boot;    Converse leather chucks;    Full length leather gloves;    Steven Alan ruffle panty;    Journelle lace bralette (my boobs are way too 'sensitive' for this but a girl can dream. maybe i should also invest in some pasties...);    O french knickers;    Kiki de Montparnasse silk bloomers.

I would also like a leather jacket, but alas, I could not find one that did not look like every other rick owens/helmut lang/burberry shearling knock off. still pissed about this shearling trend. hoping it fades by next year so i can buy a proper sheepskin jacket. i've AAAALWAYS wanted one dammit.

hope you're all having a good week thus far. :)

You know a lot of people dream of having a store filled with only stuff they like. I don't have to dream because for me such a store exists, and it's called lagarconne.com They kill me every season with their merchandise and lookbooks (and prices)!

If I was a baller I'd just ask them to send me everything they pick out each season, and I would be all set.

Gorgeous list. I'm going similarly monochrome for fall, I think, and those black clog/boots are rockin.

There's something about an oversized gray sweater. It's like perfection. I could write a sonnet about gray sweaters.

@koko: you def don't have to tell me. i LOVE lagarconne. i just wish they loved me back and would give me some hefty coupons or something. or let me be a model for them. SOMETHING!!!

maaaaaaan, those boots have haunted me for months. they were all over the city and i said HUMPH, sheep. and now....i totally want an over the knee pair. they'd be so toasty. and so expensive. :(

you should! i love sonnets. and grey sweaters. by the way, is it grey or gray? what's the difference??? i think my british education is catching up to me.

I just had to say that you have the perfect fall wishlist. Mine is pretty similar with the oversize sweaters and nice (low) boots. I also would love to have a leather jacket, but I just can't find that perfect one, you know? Well, a Rick Owens leather jacket caught my eye, but that's a bit unattainable right now (or for the next few years).

Feel free to purge thisaway. LOL.

I need to go through my shit too...and plan for next season. Oddly enough, there isn't a lot I'm looking for. Or maybe I'm just avoiding it. Who knows?

Haha, I absolutely agree with koko. lagarconne is the most inspirational store, filled with the best clothes.. i'd literally wear every single garment from that store.

love this list - i'll need to make a mini list of mine soon, but am also trying to watch my budget...:)

i have those no.6 shearling clog boots but in the tall version - they saved my feet and legs from the cold in a way that Uggs never could. can't wait to get them out again this fall!

Congratulations on your first day of work! I like the texture of waffle sweaters. Gosh I'm really going to need to work my butt off I really coveting Tom and Thom jackets. One day I'll have my own museum exhibit of trench coats and jackets.
