Vintage 1950s Dress: millstreetvintage

Vintage 1950s Dress: millstreetvintage

I am going to try something a little different for this post, instead of telling you about what I’m wearing, I’m going to talk about what I wish I was wearing. I’ve always loved reading other blogger’s wishlists, but have never gotten around to putting one together of my own. This is mainly because I was worried this practice could become dangerous. I mean, taking time to reflect on beautiful items that are not currently in my closet but I really, really would like to be in my closet. This could definitely be a recipe for disaster. Haha.

So, this post will be a little experiment. As long as you guys don’t mind looking at photos of dresses and shoes I wish I had, and I don’t actually run out and buy them all…maybe I’ll do this type of post on a regular basis. So, without further ado, here is my current Dream Closet Wishlist.

 

Stormtrooper purse: ModCloth

Stormtrooper purse: ModCloth

1.) First up, a Stormtrooper purse, because Star Wars. I love showing off my love of Star Wars and I think this purse would go beautifully with my Star Wars dress.

Gretta Tulle Skirt: Alexandra Grecco

Gretta Tulle Skirt: Alexandra Grecco

2.) Alexandra Grecco’s tulle skirts have been on my wishlist for years. My goodness are they beautiful! Who doesn’t love tulle? You literally look like a princess in it. I remember when I saw Liana from Finding Femme rocking one of these tulle skirts and it took every ounce of willpower to not run out and buy every bit of her outfit. And I know this is a terrible thing to admit…but I don’t actually own any tulle skirts. Some day folks, some day there will be tulle in my closet. Some day!

 

Dapper Dance Heel in Ivory: ModCloth

3.) And when I get my tulle skirt…I’m going to need some heels fit for a princess! How adorable are these? Thank goodness they’re currently sold out of my size, or these beauties would already be in my shopping cart.

 

Bowknot Sleeveless Organza Top in White: Chicwish

Bowknot Sleeveless Organza Top in White: Chicwish

4.) Welp, I didn’t mean to, but it looks like I’ve made a whole outfit in this wishlist. How fun would this top be with that skirt? Gah! I love the bow! I believe I have Amanda from Enchanting Elegance to thank for my obsession with this top, she rocked it with a long tulle skirt earlier this summer.

 

Starry Night dress: Unique Vintage

Starry Night dress: Unique Vintage

5.) Who wants to wear Starry Night as a dress? I do! I do! Obviously, this dress has an incredible print, but my favorite part is actually the high neckline. I haven’t seen many dresses cut like this, plus sporting an awesome print.

 

Flower clutch: Opentip.com

6.) I found this adorable little clutch on Pinterest, and I think it would look lovely with just about every light-colored dress/skirt I own. See..this wishlist thing is a bad idea. This one’s actually cheap enough to consider buying. Eek. I’ll sleep on it. Haha. (Like I need another purse?)

 

Bell Bottoms: Dittos

Bell Bottoms:
Dittos

7.) I don’t care what anyone says, I love bell bottoms and wide-legged pants. And I love how nice and long these look. I own so many pairs of jeans similar to these, though, it’s almost unhealthy. But I live in this style of jeans in the winter months. I think the only time I’ve ever featured them on the blog was one of my first posts, though. Weird. I will have to change that…right after I buy these jeans. ๐Ÿ˜‰

 

Hooded coat: Steve Madden

Hooded coat: Steve Madden

8.) Even though it’s only a matter of time before I spill coffee on it and stain it, I absolutely adore cream colored coats. And the only thing I adore more than cream colored coats, is cream colored coats with hoods. This coat has such an incredible cape-like neckline and gigantic hood! I absolutely love it. Plus, it’s by Steven Madden. I already have one Steve Madden coat that is probably my favorite purchase of all time, and was also probably my favorite outfit post to date. (Click here to see it.)

 

Vintage 1950 Cocktail Dress: millstreetvintage

9.) I didn’t realize it until I started putting this post together, but the 1950s is definitely my style era of choice. If someone could please send me every dress from the 1950s, that would be great!

 

Hand Painted TOMS: KellismCo

Hand Painted TOMS: KellismCo

10.) Last, but not least, these adorable hand painted cherry blossom TOMS. I already own a pair of Octopus TOMS from this Etsy shop and I adore them. They are so unique, and of course TOMS are crazy comfortable.

The end!

    I enjoyed this post very much. I always love reading wish list-posts, and this was no different. I agree with you that there is a certain danger in looking at things you want, haha! But can’t hurt to do it every once in a while, right? (Or so I say to myself)
    The two vintage dresses are beautiful. Definitely on my wish list now ๐Ÿ˜› And I would also love a tulle skirt.
    Loved reading this. Keep it up!
    Have a lovely weekend!

      Haha! So far so good. No online purchases have been made since this post. However, I’ve been on vacation…so that may have had something to do with it. Haha. And I love those dresses so much! I really need to take the plunge and try some vintage out one day. ๐Ÿ™‚

    This was a great post! Basically in love with everything and I love the 1950s too! I need to bring that bow top back out lol. Dying over that starty night dress too. It’s my favorite painting!

      Thank you, Kara! It was a good time making the list, and nothing from it has been bought as of yet. Maybe I will continue making wishlists. ๐Ÿ™‚ I don’t hate you at all!! I want to see photos of this dress! Haha. That’s incredible! (However, I shouldn’t be surprised…you do always have the best vintage!) ๐Ÿ™‚

        I may have to take her out for a spin on the blog one day soon then! I have such a soft spot for 3D appliquรฉ… ๐Ÿ™‚ I love seeing your list and the things that catch people’s eye. I’m incredibly impressed with your willpower. I definitely splurged on an item from my last wishlist (but I’m not sorry! ๐Ÿ˜œ). If you DO cave and scoop one of those pretties up, at least you know you’re in good company! xxx
