Dream Closet Wishlist: Round 2

About a month ago I did my first wishlist post, and I am very happy to report, that I purchased absolutely none of the items off of it (yet)! So, I’m going to give this another go… seeing as my willpower is stronger than I thought, and you guys didn’t seem to mind reading the last one. Plus, I had a blast dreaming about all the pretty clothing I would like to own one day.

So here, we go again! My Dream Closet Wishlist: Round 2

ModCloth black and white dress
Established Elegance Dress: ModCloth

This dress is SO pretty. I am a sucker for an A-line dress, and I’m convinced there’s no such thing as owning too many floral prints. So, I think this dress is more of a need, than a want. 😉

arrow dress

OK, so this one I might actually have to buy. See, not only do I think it looks cool. I have big plans for using this in a potential cosplay of my current favorite superhero..who GASP is actually from the DC Comics (not Marvel for once!). Any fellow geeks know who I’m talking about? If not, I have a feeling there will a future post explaining this…stay tuned.

darth vader purse
Darth Vader Purse: Unique Vintage

There are so many Star Wars themed novelty purses that I don’t own, but really, really want to own! The list just keeps growing!


Studded Pump: DSW

I am loving the studded pumps right now! And don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t turn my nose up to a pair of Valentinos. But I honestly like the way these far more affordable BCBCG heels look over the pricey Valentino version.


cape zac posen
Cape Gown: Zac Posen

Speaking of pricey items, this dress is something I don’t ever have to worry about impulsively buying one day…unless I take out a loan. Haha. But it sure is gorgeous, and I am completely head-over-heels in love with everything cape this fall.

Deco-inspired dress: ModCloth
Deco-inspired dress: ModCloth

This dress, however, is a bit closer to affordable. Gosh, I have been drooling over this dress for ages, but I don’t think I have enough fancy events to wear it for that would justify its price. Oh well, it’s fun to dream!

Bolero: SkitaDesign

I’m finding that as the temperatures drop, I’m in need of cardigans and boleros to make my sleeveless dress collection more winter appropriate. I love how classy this bolero looks…I can picture it with at least five of my dresses – oh boy! 🙂

lace up boots
Lace-up boots: Zappos

I wasn’t sure how to feel about them at first, but I have come to the conclusion that I love the lace-up boots I’m seeing everywhere this fall! I’m really liking the suede-like top of these too, for a slightly more unique look.

black skinnies
Black Skinny Pants: White House, Black Market

My only pair of black pants is currently so faded and gross looking, I should not be allowed to wear them in public. Needless to say, I’m really in need of a decent pair of black pants. However, when it comes to pants for some reason…I really take my time and get super picky. So, it’ll probably be another year before I actually decide on a pair. These White House, Black Market ones actually do look promising, though, and I’ve always been happy with the quality of their clothing.

Hooded coat: Steve Madden
Hooded coat: Steve Madden

OK, I’m putting this one on my list again because, I cannot stop thinking about this gorgeous coat. I have been checking ModCloth’s website daily, just waiting for it to go on sale so I can justify buying it. And today, the craziest thing happened. I was Googling around trying to find this coat on other sites, and I stumbled upon it on Amazon. And it is $50 less!! What the heck? And it certainly looks like the same coat? I just might have to get it…

red hair

I know this isn’t something that belongs on my “Dream Closet Wishlist,” but my “Dream Hair Wishlist” isn’t very long. And I am currently wanting to do something crazy to my hair. I’ve been leaning toward this purply red color (I’m terrible at naming colors, sorry). I would keep my current length, I’m not ready to do anything drastic there. But what do you guys think, should I go red? Or just leave it be? And if you have dyed your hair red, what do you use for products to keep the color around a little longer? (I know red fades crazy fast.)

And what’s on your wishlist right now? Is there anything on my wishlist that’s now on yours? Let me know in the comments!


  1. I am so crushing over the hooded dress!! It satisfies that edgy fashion person in me that is always screaming to come out! And, the deco-inspired dress is gorgeous! ModCloth has beautiful clothing. And the bolero, boots…I pretty much love everything in this post! Fantastic! Love the hair, I’m planning on getting some subtle peach highlights soon, my boss doesn’t love the different hair colors, but I can get away with it during the holidays! 🙂

    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      I actually used that hooded dress for a Halloween costume and also wear it for winter. And oh yes! ModCloth always hits it out of the park! Thank you so much! And I can’t wait to see your hair color changes. 🙂

  2. Lauren-Blair says:

    All of these pieces of clothing are lovely! My favorite is the first one though…and I don’t think I’ve seen it on ModCloth somehow! I think you’d look good in any hair color bc you look good as a blonde and a brunette. So go for it 😉 I hear you too; I’m holding off on touching my hair until it’s as long as I can get it without it being unhealthy…and then I’m going nuts haha. And my patience is starting to run thin lol! XO

    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      I think the first dress was a new release last week. So, that’s probably why you haven’t seen it yet. 🙂 And thank you so much for the hair advice. I’ve talked to my stylist, and I think we have a game plan for a hair change when I’m home next! I can’t wait to see what you decide to do with your hair too!

  3. Grace Liang says:

    Such a cute post! I should do one later too. 😉 I will love to have that cape gown as well.

    Thank you so much for your support for our surgeries. We are both doing very well and I will get back to work tomorrow! 🙂 I really appreciate your nice comments!
    Don’t forget to come back every Wednesday to link up with me!
    Take care and keep in touch!

    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Thank you, Grace! I would love to read your wishlist post!! I am so glad to hear you are both doing well after surgery! And I will definitely stop by on Wednesday. 🙂

    You would look AMAZING with red hair!! I say go for it (and just for the record, I kind of think that haircut would be really fierce on you too! 😉 But baby steps). Just added that Skita Design bolero to my wishlist… dumdum DUM! xxx


    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Thank you, Kara!! I do actually like this haircut and once upon a time had this short of hair…but it took me so stinking long to get my hair grown out I’m not sure if I’m ready to cut it just yet lol. Dying it is less permanent. 😉 And I love that bolero!

  5. Ela (@WunderBliss) says:

    Adore those studded black pumps! Those are just the addition I need for my shoe collection:-) Hahaha


    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Haha same here! 🙂

  6. Such a great list! The dresses on the list are just beeeautiful! I agree, you can never have too many florals.
    And as for the coat, I’ve been eyeing that same one in a different colour for ages now. It’s so elegant, and I think you’d wear the shit out of it!
    Your hair is beautiful as it is, but I’m sooo pro-red. I love red hair in basically every shade. It’s probably because my own hair won’t take any colour unless I bleach it, but red hair is in my opinion very beautiful! I say go for it!
    Have a lovely rest of the weekend!
    Much love

      Thank you, Mona! And you should look into Zulily! They had all the same colors in that coat as ModCloth but for half the price (I’m not sure what their international shipping looks like, though). I’m totally going to buy it I’ve decided. It’s been years since I bought a new coat. 😉 And thank you for the hair input! I’m still on the fence (I’m such a chicken when it comes to my hair. haha) but if I don’t like it I can always dye it back, right? 😉

  7. Amanda Brezovsky says:

    Ugh, I basicslly want everything here! Great list Lindsey! That Zac Posen dress is devine. As soon as I saw the green jacket I thought the Green Arrow! Do you watch the CW show? I am drooling over the deco modcloth dress. Its reminds me of a starry night. As for your hair, definitely keep the length and I could totally see you with a reddish purple color. Not bright red, but a darker version.


    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      I am so excited that I know so many Green Arrow fans!! And yep I do watch the show, I’m quite excited for this season to get started next week. 🙂 And thank you for the hair input, Amanda! I would definitely go for a darker red (not bright, definitely can’t pull that off. haha.) if I do get the courage to do anything other than my natural color. 🙂

  8. jenniferrzasa says:

    Is it Green Arrow?! I hope so! I’m actually working on a Green Arrow costume right now (not for NYCC though…)

    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Haha yep! It’s Green Arrow! That makes me so happy that you knew who I was talking about haha!

  9. I love the first dress and those boots! If only I could afford them…


    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Same here! It sure is fun to dream, though. 🙂
