The Fashion Magpie Emilia Wickstead Dress

Trois Choses.

Three random shopping agenda items to discuss aujourd’hui:

Un. My sisters are throwing me a “sprinkle” for micro in a few months and I am so excited. I am itching to pull the trigger on this Emilia Wickstead dress, which, I have on good authority having seen it on a celebrity bump or two, is pregnancy-friendly owing to the elasticized waist situation. The genius is that it can also be worn with panache post-pregnancy, as evidenced by the snap of none other than HRH LSD above. My only hang-up is that the shower will be in late March and that I will therefore be really pushing the boundaries on what’s acceptable season-wise. But…! I love! I’m torn between this print and this one. Alternately, I have long had my eye on this Lisa Marie Fernandez tiered beauty (<<now on sale!) as the perfect Charlotte York-esque maternity dress, but again — seasonality is a bit of an issue. I may buy this inexpensive dress as a back-up and fancy it up with some statement shoes and my pearl headband?…

Deux. My chic girlfriend Jen came over for a playdate with her precious baby the other day and she was wearing these incredible fur-trim boots. I immediately assumed they were Stuart Weitzman and complimented her on them. “Oh these? They were like $40.” (My eyes bulged out of my head. Sorry to blow your spot, Jen.) Turns out they are these beauties and they are currently on sale for $39! What! (They look way more expensive than that!) I am also loving these See x Chloes and these gray fur ones by Sam Edelman. If you like the look but not the “clunk” so much, check out these refined ones (on super sale) by Kate Spade. I like them with skinny jeans and a chunky knit like this, this, or this.

Trois. Sorry to beat you over the head with this, but I am in LOVE with this Pam Munson tote in the pink!

Post Scripts.

+ I cannot overstate how flattering this particular cut of dress is (it makes me feel like a long, lean goddess) — and the dress is now marked WAY down. Love the print!

+What are your beauty tricks of the trade?

+These are so well-priced as to make me suspicious of their authenticity. LOVE THEM.

+My favorite running shoes, marked down in select sizes to $26 — and in such a fun color!

+How cool are these matchbox prints?!

+Motherhood miscellany.

+Love the print (and price tag) on this sundress.

+This in the pretty blush pink has turned my head.

+A pretty and far less expensive alternative to this sweet fair-isle I’ve been eyeing from LoveShackFancy. (Also, LSF has marked down a couple of version of their pastel sweaters, like this one!)

+Fresh duds for the new year.

+About as sophisticated as you can get when it comes to toddler dining.

+Can’t believe the price on this chic cropped bow-bedecked jacket!

  1. OMG, that Emilia Wickstead dress! GORGEOUS. So fun that your sisters are “sprinkling” you! I’m in the throes of helping to plan a baby shower for my SIL and it’s so much fun! xx

    1. Just realized my word choice is a little bit suspect … haha! It IS fun to plan a baby shower, not agita-provoking like my previous comment might have led you to believe… 😉
