Holiday Shopping Guide!

5

  UPDATED: 12/5/13! I recently sent some friends an e-mail with things I bought (or will be buying) for my holiday gift list. Then Monica from Wired Momma asked if she could feature it on her blog. THEN I thought, “wait a minute…I have a blog, and back when I was actually writing stuff on…

What I’m wearing this week…

…at BlogHer! I’m leaving on Thursday and will be gone for three nights. And I’m not at all kidding when I tell you that I LOVE packing for any trip – so packing for three days in NYC is more fun (for me) than you can imagine. Okay – so I’m not going to give…

Attention DC Fashionistas: Kathlin Argiro Trunk Show in Alexandria this Saturday!

If you have been following Wishing True over the past few years, you have read many posts about my friend Kathlin and her fabulous dresses. I love that someone I went to high school with is now a successful fashion designer in NYC. Makes me feel very important…by association – but still! Kathlin is known…

Wish List for July 16, 2012

Feeling pink and gold today… Inspired by this blazer/jacket I think: And isn’t it great with that Anthro necklace? I’ve been a longtime reader (i.e. lurker) of Erin Gates’ blog, Elements of Style. And she has recently teamed up with a friend to start a line of blazers. The label is Two Penny Blue, and…

Wish List for June 11, 2012

Today’s list includes a true range of affordable to attainable to maybe when the kids are out of college-able. For ME, that is…as a ring that has four digits in the price (BEFORE the decimal point) isn’t a priority for our family right now. ANYWAY. How fab are these? First - a pretty top from Rickshaw Design: I picked this…

Wish List for June 4, 2012

After a year without posts (and a brief attempt at a return), I’m bringing back my Wishing True blog! Now a page on The Big Piece of Cake, I’ll use this space to write about all of the beautiful things I find online (and there are many). This will include everything from jewelry and fashion to textiles…

Plümo Pretties

I bookmarked Plümo a while ago when I saw some images on An Indian Summer. There isn’t that much detail to be found about the company on the site, but it sounds like they look for original products that can’t be found in your typical retail mall setting. All from “artisans, co-operatives from Africa to…

Perfecting the Fine Art of Parisian Chic?

There have a been a number of books and articles written about Parisian style – specifically how the decidedly un-Gallic can achieve it. In general – style is a difficult thing to imitate, as it rarely rings true when forced. So the idea that anyone can just pick up a new image and make it…

Interiors on the Runway

Yesterday, I posted some amazing images that I pulled from Miss Moss. All of which were inspired by fashion designer, Mary Katrantzou. When I followed Diane’s links to see the original collection, I read reviews referencing how her Spring/Summer 2011 collection (titled C’est Ci Nes Pas Une Chambre or This Is Not A Room) would…
