Spring/Summer 2013 Wish List

I've been doing these Polyvores for a couple of years: my Wish List for the upcoming season. They guide me, even if many of the pieces in the display are outrageously priced. (I often find my treasures at a consignment/thrift shop or at deep discount.)

And a picture is worth a couple hundred words, so this graphic helps me visualize what I'm shopping for better than a list:

Spring/Summer 2013

And some musings:

  • Graphic tees will give a little personality to my weekend wear. Nothing girly or cartoon-ish. Let It Be is cool for all ages.
  • A lace top will freshen up my full and pencil skirts. Must be lined for complete coverage!
  • Some colorful blouses will get a lot of mileage for work and play. Must be washable.
  • A versatile summer dress. Make mine a Karina Rita style.
  • Slightly looser-than-usual jeans look modern to me.
  • Bright flats and bangles for a boost of color, and neutral flat sandals for constant wear (I'll splurge on good ones).
  • A Spring-y full skirt to replace my worn-looking green one.
  • I'm all about delicate necklaces all of a sudden, and have my eye on WendyB's expressive necklaces.

I'll be a happy, well-dressed woman if I get most of this done. I'd love to hear what's on your shopping list!

    Hi Patti, I am watching several places for graphic print tees.  The tribal looks are still in and I really like them.  Good polyvore and great to get us thinking SPRING!

  2. I'm on the lookout for a cool graphic tee too. Went to Goodwill yesterday thinking I could find one, but no. Sadly, they were all yucky. 
    I'd also like some flat sandals for spring and summer. I like the nude shade of the shoes you selected.

    Love your list, Patti. Spring/summer sneaks up on me so fast in AZ that I don't usually get a list made. You've made me think about doing so before I head out shopping again. I guess I'm more of the "I didn't know I wanted that/needed that until I see it" kind of shopper.

  4. Lace tops are very popular this year .. I've purchased a few from Macy's :-)


  5. I have some new delicate necklaces coming up, in addition to what I have on the site! Plus I'm doing a lot of custom! Email me if you want some inside info on what's not officially for sale yet ;-)

    BTW I'm having a never is the next new thing moment with graphic tees, which I thought I was done with forever. I'm getting this one: http://shop.tate.org.uk/lichtenstein-a-retrospective/hopeless-t-shirt/invt/g2062/ 

  6. The dress, the yellow flats, the fuller skirt... lovely selection!

  7. Great wish list, Patti!!
    I've got flat tan sandals on my list and i'm planning on making some summery peasent blouses and skirts.

  8. Hi there! Great pieces chosen well, I am looking for some bright accessories for summer, such as yellow or neon for pops of colour and also a neutral colour jacket! xx

  9. It is perfect time to make a few plans for the longer term

    and it's time to be happy. I have learn this publish and if I may I desire to counsel you few attention-

  10. Sounds like an awesome list! So far I have an orange skirt I'm making (out of my orange dress), I want another good cardigan or two and a spring-plaid skirt. Otherwise I'm pretty set on clothes. I can't wait to break out all the sandals I scored on ebay over the winter.

    Graphic tees are still big on my list.  I wear tees a lot because they work for the comfort and they are suitable temp-wise.  I feel like if I had 4 or 5 of the perfect ones I'd be set.  Not quite there yet...

  12. Lovely list! I have just bought a few things, so will be challenging myself to wear them inventively - some were replacements for old favourites, like your green skrt - always hard to do. In the end, I didn't replace like-for-like as that hasn't wrked for me recently, just type-for-type (e.g narrow leg trousers to replace peg leg trousers, etc).

  13. Oh yes, I can see you in all these pieces, Patti. Did you see Ms. Secret Squirrel's lace top? I could imagine you wearing that and looking gorgeous!
    Love the blouses in particular. xxx

  16. that floral top is adorable

  17. Love your picks!  You can't go wrong with a graphic tee.  I love them with a skirt in a sort of casual dressy style.  I splurged on comfortable sandals last year so this year I would love a nude or colored shoe.  Debbie @ ilovemylemonadelife.com

  24. Hey Patti, I posted some snow pics on Facebook earlier and saw a post from the Beatles (see below). Then I'm looking at your goodies and see you are wanting a Let It Be tee. I think we both must have one! lol That's kind of weird, though, I think :o)
