Today I am sharing a little secret. A somewhat embarrassing little fact about myself... I keep a list in my wallet. A list of current closet desirables.

I've been doing it for years and years. About 2 - 3 times a year I re-do the list... writing down what I need/want that season. It usually consists of a few current season trends + some more classic pieces I need to make my closet work. I try to stick to the list and not shop just for the sake of shopping. Actually, secret #2 - I don't really like to shop. I just wish the things I wanted would appear in my closet. I do most of my shopping online because the last thing I want to do on my day off from the store is spend it at another store... or worse - the mall.

The list above was my fall/winter list. Of course there were more items I wanted this season {and maybe I even purchased a few items that weren't on the list... shhhh!}, but the items listed above were the things I felt like I needed {still need}.

The whole want vs. need is always a conundrum. Do I really need any of these things?

Yes, of course I do!


  1. I remember these lists well. And I admire that you shop this way. As you know, I am NOT good at that. Here's hoping you find everything on your list! :)

  2. Also... a) NOT embarrassing. And b) cute wallet!!

  3. Oh...... "the list" comes out!!!!!

  4. AND you need to be finding that camel blazer, it's been on the list way too long ;o)

  5. @marni, Thank you and thank you! @Laurels, I know I do!!! Help! :)
