My Fall Wishlist

by Kristina Uriegas-Reyes

The fall lines and looks are starting to appear every place I turn and I couldn’t be more excited. Fall is my favorite time of year. I call it “tights and sweater” season which makes me infinitely happy considering my giant drawer of colorful tights and shelves of crazy sweaters, which were kind of useless in my hometown of San Antonio, Texas. Like my Summer Wishlist last June, I decided to culminate all the things I’m in love with at the moment and either can’t afford or might just splurge on in the next coming months. 

To start the list off, I decided to go with the shoes I haven’t stopped thinking about since I saw them on Tavi Gevinson’s feet at the Advanced Style party. I’m pretty much in love with all the BASS Loves Rachel Antonoff Shoes..but specifically I’ve fallen for 3 pairs: The Jasmine Black and White loafers seen above and below, the Odette Cream and Black saddle shoes, and the Odette Cream and Pink saddle shoes seen below. 

At $129 the Jasmine loafers are a bit out of my price range, but these two babies are now on sale for $76! I already own a pair of non-shiny black and white saddle shoes so by process of elimination, the pink would definitely be favorite wishlist shoe…’s pink! How can you not love a pink saddle shoe? 

For years now, I’ve been dying for a red cape, a sort of chic little red riding hood sort of look so it’s only appropriate that it comes next on my list. I’ve looked just about everywhere for a vintage one, but I actually kind of like this American Apparel cape. My roommate has it and always looks super cute in it. I also like it in black, but that might just be because of the styling/model difference in the two looks. Why is the red cape model all “Yeaaah, I’m not wearing anything under this,” while the black cape model looks perfectly cute and put together?



I once thought I found a super great cape (as seen below), but then I realized I was basically wearing a semi-chic snuggie in disguise. Am I right? I thought that it was snuggie-esque because of the fleece, but the capes above are fleece and look way less snuggie-like. I admit, I still love how super cozy it is on cold winter nights though. 


The next thing on my list are these Madewell by Alexa Chung Zowie Leopard Print Boots

Just look how cute they look on Tennessee Thomas and Alexa Chung! Then again, what don’t these girls look cute in?? Seriously, somehow Tennessee is even making pajamas in public seem cool. 

I swear I’m not as shoe obsessed as I might be coming across. I’m much more a bag gal than a shoe one, but I must add one more pair to the list: Repetto Mary Janes. They are classic and timeless. 

On to non-shoes: I’m pretty into this leopard print cardigan and leopard print satchel from the Mad Men at Banana Republic Collection

….And I just realized that this is the third leopard printed item on my list so far. I guess I never met a leopard print I didn’t like as long as they’re not all worn at once! Can you imagine? Cardigan, bag, and shoes…all leopard. Yikes!

We’ve got Bass, Madewell, Repetto, and Banana Republic so far, but we’re now entering the Etsy portion of the list:

Illustrated Wood Necklace by depeapa

Awesome flower tote also by depeapa

Honey Bunny Sweatshirt by rosiemusic. I seriously want all this girls wearable illustrations!

I love all illustrations by this lady as well! 

By the way, this is my Etsy shop if anyone would like to take a gander. It technically only has one thing in it at the moment, but it’s a really great item that I wish fit me and more will soon come unless I hold a stoop sale soon in which’re all invited!

Well, till next season…
