Alison's Latest Obsessions

As you can probably tell by now, my fashion obsessions are pretty different from Kym's obsessions. Once we did share an obsession with the Chloe platform/doc martin-style boot. Kym was lucky enough to get a pair in classic black from the Chloe store in Paris, while I could only manage to get a bright orange pair, which I still love to wear regardless of the strange looks I get.

So here are my latest obsessions from the Fall collections. I hope to not purchase any of these things, at least until Sale time. Please, please, please still  be available when Sale time finally rolls around!

1. Prada shoe -- My #1 obsession and I would love it in any color it comees in, I can only hope I never see it in the store or else I am in big trouble (cha-ching!)
2.  Marni party dress -- oh Marni, I love you so much. I will dedicate an entire post to you in the near future.
3. Dolce & Gabbana Glove belt:  Shown here as a Glove scarf, but it is also available in belt form. You know I'm a sucker for overly clever fashion.
4. Marc Jacobs Shoe/Boots: Similar to the Lanvin shoes I posted about yesterday, but these come with the fun strap! Similar to the galosh-style boot from Prada with the suspender strap. Something about looking like an old man who still wears socks that require suspenders really appeals to me.
5. Bright bathrobe coat: Don't care which designer, I just love the bright colors and the style. The best part is that I can wear it maybe 2x a year in SoCal. Talk about functional!
Oh, I also want a crazy old lady leopard print coat, but I'm going to look either at vintage thrift stores or Mango for that! 

What do you think of my picks? Am I out of my mind? Don't answer, I already know.

  1. Hello-wonderful post. We are all somewhat functioning without you "showing the presence" at D3. At this rate I am scared that you may checkmate into the next CEO position at one of your favorite designers' and never come back. I have received a compliment or 2 wearing your Grey H&M puff sleeve dress today, and wanted to check-into your blog.<3 the bathrobe coat, and the shoes (i am into peacocks, and that reminds me of one)!! Back to work!

  2. All I want to know is - how in the hell do you wear those amazing prada shoes?!?!?
