One thing I really want is a proper blazer with elbow patches. I am just totally obsessed with it. I really need to free my inner middle-aged Englishman, but I don't know if I can do it on a budget. Haha.
I really like this Zara blazer. I've always wanted to buy something from Zara. Maybe I can beg someone to buy this as an XMAS gift. :P I think I can be quite convincing. Hehe.
It's hard to find them under $100, but VJ Style seems to offer the best price.
I have as of yet to buy something from VJ Style. I'm very curious about them. Their prices are really good and I've seen some positive reviews by other bloggers. Perhaps this will be my first purchase.
Unfortunately, they don't carry a blue satchel, but I did find something a bit similar at ModCloth.
I'm also looking for plaid. I have an intense obsession with that pattern. I have mostly plaid pants and plaid dresses on my radar. There's one dress in particular that I've fallen in love with and I'm not really a dress kinda gal, so this says a lot. It's from Ruche and it's perfect. The colors aren't too loud, the plaid pattern isn't overdone and I can totally see how I could wear it in a rather un-ladylike fashion. Haha.
Still pricey, but a steal for these particular sweaters. You can't really find good quality elbow patch sweaters for under $50. I bought an elbow patch sweater from another popular retailer and promptly returned it, because the patches were the same fabric as the sweater. It just looked cheap for the $70
I paid for it. The Oasap sweaters I bought had proper elbow patches.
Anyway, it was my first Oasap purchase and I'm already thinking about what to get next. I hope these plaid/checkered pants go on sale soon! I'm on a mission to add more colorful pants to my wardrobe!
Have you started XMAS wish lists? If/when you blog about it, let me know! I'd love to take a gander!
