Oh, about three months ago, I was telling you all about my wearable shopping list. Although, this shopping list was thought of more like a Wish List. One of my loyal readers – Hi, Mom! – thought that she might make this wish list of mine come true – thanks again! Obviously, when I wrote my list it was all in fun and I had no thoughts whatsoever of my items being added to my life any time soon. They were just current wants that I was fine living without. Well, over the last few months, thanks to my mom, my Wearable Shopping List has become a reality – oh, with the exception of those Docs. I can’t find them in the color I want anywhere.
Today, I thought I would show you all my wish list fulfilled, in real life. Let’s start with the boots.
I mentioned before that I was kind of surprised to find myself really liking these wedge style booties that I keep seeing around. What I ended up buying in real life was a little bit different from what I originally thought. I went with a different color, and a different brand completely. I found them online in one of those super, pre-Black Friday sales and I couldn’t resist. The price was so reasonable, and my thinking was should I decide I don’t really like this style on me after all, I wouldn’t be out much. They were cheap! Unfortunately, a little more cheaply made than I would have liked, but it’s fine though, they will still get plenty of wear, and then I can upgrade to those Tom’s once these wear out and I know for sure that I will in fact get enough wear out of them.
Next, the sunglasses. I originally came across the pair I wanted at the Oakley outlet in Nashville. I didn’t buy them that day because I was waiting, at the time, for our upcoming vacation. Vacation finally came, and so did my chance to do some shopping. I was almost out of luck that day though, cause after looking in all the Sunglasses Huts, I couldn’t find what I was looking for, and no one seemed to know about this elusive pair of Oakley Disputes of which I spoke. Then, we found the Oakley Outlet store in Orlando, and there they were, the last pair besides the display. I didn’t hesitate one bit, and they came home with me that very second. Maybe not that very second precisely. I had accidentally left my wallet in the trunk of the car so I had to make my way back through the ridiculously huge outlet mall parking lot, in the rain, with no umbrella, to our car which I had forgotten where we had parked. Then, back to the store to buy the glasses. That very second, actually ended up being a few minutes later. It’s almost the same thing.
I’ve saved the best for last, the dress: ModCloth’s Floating on Aria dress. The prettiest dress that had come through my Pinterest feed in awhile.
This I bought right away, that very same week in fact. I am so happy that I did, because the next time I looked at the site my size was already sold out. I think it is the prettiest dress currently in my closet and I am waiting for the perfect night (or day) out to wear it.
Not necessarily with this pair of shoes. Don’t worry!
There you go, my wish list fulfilled. I still haven’t forgotten about those cherry red Carnaby Docs though… Hopefully, they will be added to the real life items very soon.
