i've had a girl crush on Kirsten Dunst ever since i saw her in The Virgin Suicides. like her friend and auteur Sofia Coppola, her simple approach to dressing offers such a refreshing contrast from the rest of the über-trendy Hollywood set.
this holiday / winter season, my wishlist is inspired by Kirsten's simple, elegant, and practical style:
at the top of the list is a navy peacoat (contemplating this one on sale as well), which has been a longtime wishlist item. the splurge of the season is a PS1 bag, which you guys are probably sick of hearing me blabber on about at this point. a month or so ago, i sold off a number of items from my closet, and finally decided to get the suede version as an early Christmas present. (more on the bag soon!) next on the list is a pair of A.P.C. ankle boots to alternate with my Marant dickers – am currently leaning towards the cognac nubuck version. a few pairs of tights are in order – in a sheer mini-heart print and matte black. i also need a pair of fingerless gloves (iphone-friendly!) – love these in cashmere, which are over half off (great gift idea too!).
finally, one item that's been missing from my closet is a fun party dress. i hate spending a lot on dressy dresses because they're special occasion pieces, so i'm eyeing this silk and sequin gold one that's currently on sale. i love that it's really simple to balance out the sparkle, and it's also layering-friendly with a leather or tux jacket. i also like this T by Alexander Wang silk maxi dress that's majorly marked down. both dresses remind me of something that a young Sofia or Kate Moss would wear out on the town.
what's on your holiday / winter wardrobe wishlist? have you scooped up some great sale finds so far?
