My 'I'm Coveting' post this month is my favorite so far. Typically, I'd include unattainable items that make me drool - This month, I chose clothing and accessories from my Christmas wishlist and a few things I recently purchased. I'm still in awe of the Fendi boots and Prada bag (a girls gotta dream).
I purchased this Fenty X Puma rose pink front lace hoodie (was available at Farfetch) for a night out in Vegas. It's called a hoodie, but the oversized style puts this soft, cotton sweater in the sweater dress category. I paired this hoodie with an oversized, pink MIU MIU faux shearling clutch and beige, Rockoko Fendi boots. I looked good! This hoodie is super cozy, and the front lace detail adds to an otherwise basic style. Your accessories will take this from day to dinner to the club.
I love the 'clear lense' trend. These Chloé gold-tone aviator optical glasses are my favorite. I did purchase them, but the frames were warped, so I sent them back. Unfortunately, they're super hard to get now, so I opted for a different Chloé style. Fashion frames with clear, non-prescription lenses are modern and enhance your face. I like the retro style frames, but each person is different - opt for a frame that suits you. The 'geek, hipster' style looks great on everyone. The oversized frames make you look cute and well, 'geeky'.
These boots are AMAZING! I'm a little obsessed with Fendi Rockoko fabric boots (available at Fendi). Each season this style is available in new colors and embellishments. These gray stretch fabric boots are embellished with pink and burgundy tone daisy flowers, have a striped heel, and two 'sock-style' stripes around the shaft. These boots are a statement. Surprisingly, Rockoko boots are super comfy - I can wear them for hours. I'm hoping for a new pair this season (hint hint).
This Off-White down the shoulder shirt (available at Revolve) is grungy, sexy and unique - the sleeves are super-long, with an oversized cuff embellished with round metal-tone buttons. The checkered plaid, slouchy look and tie waist bring the grunge, while the off-the-shoulder style brings the glam. I have this top and LOVE it! This Off-White top is also available in white.
The latest Fenty Puma by Rihanna is inspired by classic school uniforms. The collection is fun, sexy and rich in color. This Fenty Puma by Rihanna trapper hat is on my Christmas wishlist. The elongated flaps look warm and cozy - I'm sure this hat will keep me toasty this winter season.
I mentioned this Prada fur shopper (available at mytheresa.com) a few weeks ago. It's available in white with blue and green pompoms and rose with red pompoms. This shopper is huge and isn't structured, so you can stuff a lot of everything here. I realize white fur is not ideal, but I want it!

I'm not the kinda girl that lugs around everything but the kitchen sink. SO, totes are not my thing. BUT I need a large tote for travel. As hard as I try, I'm never gonna fit all my stuff in a carry-on suitcase for a weekend getaway. A shopper is big enough to carry liquids, small handbags and maybe a pair of shoes on my shoulder. It's gotta be large enough to hold all my stuff, but still fit within the 'one personal item' category. Is it just me or are airline size restrictions getting smaller and smaller?
You may be asking what's the difference between a tote and a shopper. Honesty, I have no idea. I would like to say a shopper is larger (in most cases it is), BUT handbag styles are blurred these days - there are small totes, and huge clutches.. There's also shopper totes.
I feel like the brand Off-White is having a moment. Admittedly, I'm a little obsessed. This Off-White leather tote (available at mytheresa.com) isn't being enough for my travel needs, but I could find a reason to carry it!
This Prada shearling shopper (available at mytheresa.com) is everything I love - furry, pink, and dons fluffy pompoms. AND it's big enough to hold my weekend getaway bags and shoes. This furry shopper is kinda loud, but who cares. Over-the-top handbags add a little something to an otherwise muted wardrobe. This shearling shopper is also available in yellow and brown hues, with orange pompoms.
This Dolce & Gabbana Beatrice fur shopper (available at mytheresa.com) is not my personal style (not a fan of black), but it's huge and perfect for those "I got a lot of s**t to lug around' days. The other side says L♥VE in white and red.
Yes, I'm crushing on Prada handbags these days.. I mentioned this Prada fur shopper (available at mytheresa.com) a few weeks ago. It's available in rose with red pompoms and white with blue and green pompoms. This shopper is huge and isn't structured, so you can stuff a lot of everything here.
These shopper styles may be al little out of your budget (mine too), but they're inspiring and a girl can dream..

This Prada knitted crochet bralette (available at Farfetch) would look great over a fitted t-shit, or by itself and paired with a super-high waist bottom. The contrasting red stitching over the gray virgin wool is a nice Fall look (even though it's a wool bralette). I couldn't wear this, cause I'm a bit top-heavy, but I encourage crop-top worthy bodies to don this amazing Prada bralette.
The sock-style boot is super-trending this season. Many brands have one or more versions of this boot. The Fendi sandal-shaped boots (available at Farfetch) are unique, in that it literally looks like your wearing socks inside your sandals. I really like these. I've only seen this style in black and red - I'd prefer a different color - maybe gray over beige.
I HAVE TO HAVE this Prada fur shopper (available at mytheresa.com). I've been searching for a large tote for a long time. I need something big to travel with, so I can carry all my little handbags and maybe a pair of shoes with me on the plane. I can never fit into a carry-on alone. This bag was meant for me. It's furry, pastel-pink and has a hook for pompoms, so you can accessorize your bag. LOVE.
I'm addicted to Chloé sunglasses. The vintage style of these Chloé aviator glasses (available at mytheresa.com) is all me. The peach-tinted frame will bring warmth to your complexion, and the pale lens will show off your eyes. These are not your typical aviator-style, but more of a retro look. HAVE TO HAVE..
I have a pair of these sock-like Fendi boots in beige and absolutely love them. They are surprisingly comfortable and look great with dresses, rolled-up denim, and 'nice' sweatpants. This season I want these Fendi Rockoko boots in black-metallic stretch fabric (available at Fendi). The color is great for winter - I don't have to worry about them getting dirty during the cold season. The metallic will stand out and add to my otherwise muted outfits. AND I like the little pink stripes (I love pink).
These Saint Laurent boot-inspired stirrup denim leg warmers (available at mytheresa.com) are essentially waist-free jeans. I doubt my stems will fit into these retro leg warmers (I'm no model), but a girl can dream. The muted-gray shade is versatile and the stirrups are SO retro. I remember having stirrup leggings when I was a little girl. The structured denim and way-high, over-the-knee style may not be suited for my body type, but stirrups are on my must-have list this season.
