jonesing out loud

Now that the days are getting a little shorter, it's time for a young girl's fancy to turn to other, more practical things. Like getting awesome deals at end-of-summer sales, and drooling over fall collections.

Bitches are always looking to update or improve on the wardrobe classics. This might or might not explain why Pirate has three pairs of red shoes in the shoe closet right now. If you, too, are looking to update, replace, or freshen up your classics, 6pm is having a sale right now on BCBGeneration items.

...and if I didn't already have 3 pair, I might have 4.

For example, those shoes are $20. Right now.

No, we are not getting paid to tell you this. Yes, there are some killer sales. I'm not kidding. Go see already!

Karen Millen has started teasing us with some fall things that Pirate will be putting on the wish list. Like this tailored jacket.
Yes I know it's a motorcycle jacket - but LOOK at it!

Karen Millen also managed to put two of Pirate's favourite things into one gorgeous item. Behold, the awesomeness that is the Draped Military Cardi.

Draped and Military - that's like putting peanut butter with chocolate. Or cherry with coke.

In fact, Moi is hugging herself silly that the military trend into which she dipped her toes last fall/winter, continues into this one. However, if only she would learn to save her pesos for one, maybe two seasonal purchases and not fritter away money here and there throughout the year on SALES, she would now be the proud owner of this lovely number, also from Karen Millen's Fall/Winter 2010 Modern Military line.

This dress certainly DOES leave one wondering just what in the heck Karen Millen does in her free time. Ah-hem.

Moi is also slavering over these here hammered silk "combat" pants, or in Brit parlance, trousers.

I hear London Calling, don't you?

At the totally opposite end of the spectrum, Moi is also Jonesing for something furry, like this faux coyote vest by Michael Kors:

Oh hush. 'Round here, they're varmints.

And she would definitely buy into Ralph Lauren's whole 2010 "Bohemian Romance" line hook, line, and sinker, if only she weren't broke, broker, and brokest.




Floaty silks and lush velvets and scrumptious cashmere, oh my!



However, since Pirate really only sees the appeal of Ralph Lauren's pants, she is instead cruising the jCrew website—trying hard not to take advantage of the extra 30 percent off sale plus free shipping over $150.

It may be 90 degrees out, but I'm sure eventually it's going to get chilly again.

As with the shoes, there is always room in the wardrobe for another cardi. Or ruffled top. Or shiny, be-ribboned necklace-y thingee.

I am totally letting the side down with only four pairs of red shoes (glitter strappy heels, chunky mary janes, patent crocodile flats, lipstick red wedges) and three pairs of red boots (knee high suede, mid-calf biker and short snakeskin).
Must. Do. Better. Lookout ebay, here I come!

LBTEPA: The fact that you have RED knee high suede boots? That shoots you into the stratosphere right there. Seriously, I only bought my first pair of red shoes (seriously!) since, oh, junior high, last month. What can I say? I'm a neutral gal when it comes to my feet.
