tagged: time warp wishlist

I was tagged by the charming Miss Sophie at Les anti-modernes to create my time warp wishlist! She writes,

every season there are a few things that i really wish i had bought when i had the chance - when it went on 50% off sale at Bird, or, occasionally, at retail (!). you know what i mean? and then there are just some things that i managed to skip over entirely. it's fun to look backwards, as many of these are now 'new vintage'!


Here are the things I wish I had been able to buy. I limited myself to six items; I could go on forever. Tagging is hard to do, but I would like to tag Melinda, Hannah, Kate, Whitney, and Erin! Hope you don't mind.


Built By Wendy denim fanny pack. This one went on sale for something like $20 and I didn't snap it up. I tried to make my own version and failed miserably. The pockets were a challenge.

Amazingly beautiful vintage lace dress from Ramona West. Still kicking myself. Look at this thing!

Orchard House Dress by Elly Fales for Wiksten (still totally in love with sailor collars)

Hooded faux fur coat from leolucaescobar. Doesn't it look so cozy? Aahh, the hood!


Anaïs Anaïs by Cacharel EDT from the duty-free last week; so inexpensive, such nostalgia! This was the first "real" perfume I ever owned.

  12. I have one dress from Ramona West too, that I want to kick myself doubly hard for not buying. It was about a year ago and I still think about it every now and then.

    Heart the Vain and Vapid dress & the Wikstenmade sailor one too.

  18. Anaïs Anaïs was my first real perfume, and I see I wasn't alone! I remember how excited I was to get a bottle of it for Chanukah when I was a teenager. Such an 80s fragrance!
    (And that lace dress is gorgeous... it looks so contemporary yet vintage.)
