Longings Beyond Scarves and Layers: My Wish List for Fall 2014

I may be living in a country where the weather is limited to either hot or hotter (or, recently, wet and wetter), but it doesn't mean I can't get inspired from the lovely colors, hues, and textures of the seasons I never get to experience, like fall. Haha. I did experience fall for the first time when I was in Tokyo last year, but I was there a bit too early to actually witness the changing leaf colors, people wearing stuff from the latest F/W collection and all those fall-y things. So, yeah. In a way, I'm still a "fall newbie."

Fall is one of the seasons when many of the leading fashion, beauty, and lifestyle brands in the world churn out some of the best items every girl should have in her closet. Of course, it's also the season when many girls break their (or their parents') wallets. Haha!

Fortunately, if you want to send someone on a fun shopping spree without going beyond your budget, you can always give them some gift cards. You can get the best selection of gift cards from almost all the popular fashion brands from shops like Raise.com. Raise is the first online marketplace to buy and sell gift cards, where you can buy discount gift cards to your favorite stores or sell your unwanted gift cards for cash. From Express to Victoria's Secret, this marketplace is full of gift cards to meet all your shopping needs. 

So, here are some of the things I'd love to put inside my little shopping cart:

Midi-Skirts from Express
I'm sure that girls with pear-shaped body type (like myself) are in love with this trend. Who wouldn't? This has the perfect silhouette that highlights the curves while concealing any imperfection.

Make Up For Ever 30 Years 30 Colors 30 Artists Palette
I haven't updated my makeup collection for a really long time now (I still have that stash from Tokyo last February), so I'd really love to have this as my newest addition. I'm not sure if it's still available though. :'( The neutral colors would look perfect for everyday office makeup, while the bolder hues would work great for a fun night out makeup look after work. And those signatures on the lid look lovely, too!

Stella McCartney's Britt Shoes
I actually own a similar pair I got a couple of years ago, but this one has a more sleek feel to it. Plus, these would look really cute when worn with a casual midi-skirt.

Lena is one of those celebrities who seems like she would be a great girl friend to hang out with (I think she's super cool). I can't wait to pick up a copy of her book. I'm not done with the third season of GIRLS yet, but hopefully I'll get to finish everything before the new season begins next year. :) 

Other titles I'm definitely getting once they're out:
Can't wait to update my wardrobe and mini-library soon. :)
