My Christmas this year will be a small one. Unemployment has plagued me for a year and half now (I'm sure many of your dear reader identify), which means my actual Christmas list is one of needs I would normally buy for myself but currently can't. However, it is happy and fun to dream a little. Here are some things I might wish for in a better economy.
You'll never catch me at a moment when I can't name several pairs of shoes I am drooling over. I love these green mary janes. I have a pair of green suede Mary Janes, but suede is hard to keep clean and the heel is a bit high for everyday wear. I also love these colorful oxfords. I could wear these fall colors all year.
I love cuddling up in warm winter clothes. A cozy sweater is one of the best things about winter. This sweater features dolman sleeves, which I love, and their three-quarter length will let me wear my long gloves. Also, I rely on a warm pair of jeans to make it through harsh winter winds. A nice pair of dark wash, straight leg jeans is actually on my real Christmas list, but finding a pair that fits seems like a dream that will never come true.
Since I'm currently living in Chicago, I'd like some straight skirts. The Windy City and my flouncy skirts don't quite get a long. The plaid skirt with decorative buttons and folds or the great ruffled skirt would be perfect for fitting with my girly style and battling the wind.
