And hopefully when it cools down, we'll be doing some more personal fashion posts here. I can't speak for Tricia, but I'm more of a fall fashion gal and need my scarves and chunky knits to feel at all put together. 100 degree weather and me do not mix well.
1. Midi Dress
(Both dress No. 6 from the No. 6 Blog & Totokaelo)
2. Marled Gray Pullover

A few weeks ago I wrote about my love of the shrunken gray sweatshirt but have yet to find one at an affordable price (less than $30) so now I'm writing a plea to the gods of shrunken grey sweatshirts, please think of the jobless and send one to my doorstep.
3. Black High Waisted Jeans
I loathe shopping for jeans - either they never fit my hips, they're too long, too loose in the knees, or just look terrible overall. Last year Madewell a fit perfect for girls with shorter legs, but discontinued the style. If only! I've heard really great things about Cheap Monday and the fact that they're fairly affordable makes them the front runner thus far. If any fellow short legged gals want to offer any suggestion or they're favorites, I'm all ears!
4. Comme des Garçons Play x Converse
Let me preface this one by saying this a completely unnecessary item but I just can't help myself. I probably could never pull these off in real life, but this is after all, a "pretend" wishlist.
5. Alexa Chung x Madewell Eyes Eyes Eyes Pouch
I'm just going to come out and say it - I really am not that impressed with this year's Alexa Chung for Madewell collaboration. Overall, none of the pieces really stood out as being very covetable and I was disappointed to see the line was just a poorer version of the same aesthetic from last line. I do really love this little pouch though. I would have loved to see some more done with the eye imagery, perhaps on jersey dresses or silk tees? What did everyone else think about the line?
And some imagery -
