Things I'm probably going to buy this fall:
1. A cardigan
2. A black wool sweater
3. A pair of black loafers
4. The Sofia Coppola PM bag in cobalt
Those sweaters from the La Garconne in house label (named Moderne) seem to be perfect - a little slouchy, made with all-natural materials (alpaca and merino wool) and assembled locally. They do cost an astronomical amount, but with care and an occasional rotation, it seems to me like they should last for at least a few good years. I'm particularly drawn the to the beige cardigan which is hand-knitted in Peru of baby alpaca wool (much softer and less scratchy than regular alpaca). I can envision it paired a silk top, a slim pair of black pants and my Hope Chy boots - it's a combination that would probably keep me warm all through autumn, winter and spring.
Other than that, I'm basically keeping my consumption habit at a minimum by avoiding blogging and blogs in general, and focusing on saving for that coveted Sofia Coppola duffel (now in a smaller size and perfect for every day use!). I think just staying away from blogs and having a goal has been good for my wallet, but perhaps not very wise when it comes to blog readership.
