Hi ladies! I hope your weekend was great! I love hearing about other peoples wishlists, so here is my top 5 (in no particular order) at the moment:

1) Oxfords

Okay, okay - these are not technically on my wishlist any longer because I ordered them yesterday, but I still want to share!

I have been looking for a gray, flat oxford that was sturdy (with my foot injury, I can't wear "flimsy" shoes for long periods of time right now), but not extremely masculine looking. I wasn't having any luck finding a pair that I liked online, so I decided to go my favorite local shoe store yesterday (Imelda's) to see if they could help. I didn't find anything out on the floor - they had some great high heeled oxfords and a few flats that were really flimsy - but none that met the criteria I had. I asked one of the SA's and she came back with an awesome pair of tan oxfords from the sale section (Gee Wawa "dream oxfords"). The shoe was perfect - just the wrong size and color:( We drove to the other Imelda's location, but they didn't have any in stock. I came home and searched for the shoes online. Only 2 options came up on google shopping. Endless, which had the black in my size, for ~$170.00 (down from $202), but no gray, and Repeat Possessions. I had never hear of Repeat Possessions before, so I was hesitant about it. I did some research and all of the reviews for them are very positive. I searched for my shoes and low and behold, there they were, the gray color in my size for only $80.00 (here)!!! Once I get them, I will do a review of the shoes and the company. Have any of you ever purchased anything from Repeat Possessions? If so, please share your experience!

2) Anthropologie Tuileries Dress

I havn't tried this dress on yet, but I love the colors, print, and cut. From looking at the reveiws, I think it will work for me. It's so springy and beautiful!

3) Blooms in the Sky Cardigan (darling via Modcloth)

I adore this sweet cardigan! It is made by Darling (the designers of the Wispy Cirrus Blouse). I love the color, the lace, and the buttons. See Carly rock it here.

4) Anthropologie Bloom Over Bud Bag

I think this is a perfect spring bag. Isn't it beautiful? The inside has a really pretty floral pattern. Love it!

5) Lavender tights

I'm thinking these from Hue in the Hydrangea color (image is not from Hue - they do not show an image of the hydrangea tights on the Hue website, so it's hard to tell what they will look like).

What are you loving right now?


  1. Nice Oxford's Kristin! I am happy you found them. I like your wishlist items, Especially the Cardigan, It's very you. I have so many wish listed Items but I am only buying one more item. I am trying not to want everything I see. It's hard :( But as you know I have my puppies and My girl just went to the Vet yesterday. She's more important right now. I can always go to EA later and find what I need :) Love the shoes! Have a wonderful week <3

  2. Those lavender tights would be perfect for spring. I have green and coral tights that I'm kind of intimidated to wear, but I'm always happy when I do. My sister loves the Tuileries -- and FYI, she says it runs big!

  3. Ooooooooh that bag is beautiful! I love the little details on the fabric! :) and I want me some oxfords too, but just can't decide whether I want a neutral colored pair or a flashier pair...

  4. What beautiful color on those tights. I like your new shoes as well. Hope you can get your hands on everything on your wishlist soon! :)

  5. I love those shoes! I've been looking for a new pair of what I call responsible shoes. Shoes that both are cute and don't kill my feet while spending the day shopping. Those fit the bill! They are cute (and I'm assuming) comfortable! The dress is amazing. I've tried it on and I love it! Plus it's silk to boot.

  6. Gabby - Thanks! I hope your pup is okay. You are right, you can always find an item later and there will always be more pretty things coming out:)

    Katie - Thanks for the info on the Tuileries dress!

    Laura - Isn't the bag beautiful? You should see the inside - it's just as pretty! Can't wait to see which oxfords you end up getting.

    Betty Ray - Thanks:)

    Minnesota Maven - Yes, responsible shoes! Thats a good way to say it. I was able to try the shoes on at Imelda's and they seemed really comfortable. I'll let you know once I have them and am able to wear them for awhile. I'm glad to hear you love the dress:)

  7. What a fun wishlist! It's bright, cheerful and ready for spring!

  8. Perfect wishlist for spring!! I just saw that Modcloth cardi on another blogger and absolutely love it!

    As for my wishlist, I really want a new handbag, but I haven't found the perfect one just yet.

  9. Oh my, I can't tell you how long I have been searching for a pair of oxford shoes that I like. I'm being so picky! But I also want to get a sturdy pair, and I find that there are alot of flimsy oxfords in stores. I'm looking forward to your review on these and will check out this Repeat Possessions site. And those lavender tights are adorable :)

  10. Love that ModCloth cardigan! And I spotted it also being sold on another site -- sadly I can't recall which one -- but I did notice that the price was the same. Too high for me, but it is nice.

  11. I love all your picks! I broke down and bought the Tuileries Dress--I was so afraid that it would disappear at full price! If only it would get warm here. I might try to style it anyways, for slightly chilly weather.

    Btw, I gave you a Versatile Blogger Award! You blog is so much fun to read! Go to: http://theanthropologicalshopper.blogspot.com/2011/03/versatile-blogger-award.html

  12. Ooh, that purse is lovely! I should really peruse Anthro's accessories more often!

    Top of my wishlist right now? For some reason, J Crew's neon gingham shirt - I want to resemble a highlighter!

  13. Hi Kimmie! Thanks! I am definitely ready for spring:)

    Kelly - I can't wait to see which handbag you end up with!

    Sweet Laundry - As popular as oxfords are right now, I didn't think it would be difficult to find a pair that met all of my criteria. I will definitely post a review once I get them!

    Lady Cardigan - I think maybe I've seen it on ASOS? Yes, the price is steep. Modcloth doesn't have sales like Anthro does, unfortunately.

    Terrie - I think the dress would look nice with some tights and a cardigan. I can't wait to see how you style it! Thank you so much for the award! My first blog award ever:) How exciting!

    Lisa - Anthro does have some great accessories:) You could totally pull off the highlighter look! That is a very pretty top. I like the pink color.

  14. Great picks, Kristin! I think the lace cardigan from Modcloth would be so versatile. The Winged Blouson has been at the top of my wish list forever. It went on sale at Bloomingdales this week and sold out quickly. Come on Anthro!:)
    Hope you have a great week!

  15. Your wishlist looks like mine! We have the same taste in clothes, even from other websites lol. I'm saving up to get the Cardigan from Modcloth, just because I know that gem will disappear faster than the Anthro dresses I've wishlisted.

  16. I have a very similar wishlist/purchases list myself! I recently ordered the Bloom Over Bud bag because I was following its inventory online and it dropped down to below 10! I knew I'd be heart broken if I missed out on such a lovely purse. Also, I purchased the Darling cardigan and love love loooooove it! I am obsessing over the Tuileries, too. It's so gorgeous.

  17. Loraine - The Winged Blouson is beautiful! Fingers crossed:)

    Andriea - It is such a beautiful cardigan! I have a feeling your are right. I'm kind of surprised it's not sold out yet. I can't wait to see how you style it!

    Carly - I didn't realize the inventory was so low for the Bloom Over Bud bag! Yikes! Do you love it? Good quality? I haven't seen it IRL yet.

  18. Kristin - I haven't received it yet, but when I do (and if you haven't already seen it) I'll shoot you an email!

  19. Carly - I'm emailing you now:)

  20. Oh my god! I am in love with that purse and the color of the oxfords! The oxfords I have and you ask me about are called "Nada Oxfords" from Etienne Aigner.. they are wonderful and also wonderfully cheap online! I totally love your pics specially the purse and the cardigan from Modcloth! Such great picks!

  21. Midory - Isn't the purse beautiful? I'm bummed, because it is now sold out:( I'm hoping for a popback! Thanks for the info about your oxfords.
