so close, yet so far away

still waiting for those dumb miu miu shoes to hit saks. won't it be so sad if they don't have my size or if they're (even worse) uncomfortable? yea, it'll be pretty sad.

i asked like two different sales associates and neither knew the arrival date. i'd so pre-order this one if only the ruffly part were detachable. is it? doubtful.

sorry, it's not likely i'll stop obsessing until i get them. actually, i was in the general vicinity of saks this weekend, but figured i didn't need to make a stop lest i be disappointed yet again by another clueless SA. bah!

everything's coming up "acorns"

fall/winter collections are always so much nicer than the spring/summer collections. well, at least i think so. sure, girls like summer because they get to dress all cute and pretty. but fall is when you get to wear the more tailored clothing with more substantial, richer fabrics. love it!

and fall items have been trickling in recently. a couple weeks ago, the first coats hit the floors. saw this dvf coat that i tried on in both black and ivory. i would have bought one in each color but then i saw that it was prominently displayed at neiman, saks and bloomingdales so you'll probably see this coat all over the place. well, not exactly all over the place since it's $695, but you'll see it around.

and besides, i'm in the market for a charcoal gray coat. i've got enough black and ivory ones. no need for more, although it is rather cute.

and oh(!) the anticipation for miu miu's fall shoe collection continues. i saw this lone shoe sitting among the prada collection and freaked out!! i flagged down a sales associate to see where the rest of the collection could be found. he said that this flat was the first and only miu miu shoe in so far.

you can be sure i'll be checking every day for the pumps to come in. i think i'll skip wearing the socks with them though.

and oh oh oh. ferro items at bv are being snatched up as quickly as they're getting into the store. i'm so all over that too.

another element of my room! in addition to a huge floor mirror (i've decided to get something that actually exists and is readily available, yet still somewhat similar: from west elm), i think i'll get a custom barcelona stool.

this stool but in the sand color.

i was thinking all last night whether to get a matching chair made as well, but the chair would set me way past the budget i've set. but then if i decide to get the chair in the future (which i likely will), then i'm running the chance of the two pieces not matching. what to do?!

man, oh man. i'm so excited to put this room together. although the pièce de résistance is something i have yet to mention and i'm pretty sure it's more than double my entire budget. so i'll have to think of a way around it. hmm, maybe up my budget?

and oh, as for the mirror, i thought about getting the west elm mirror and applying zebrawood veneer to it and framing it with chrome molding. but i looked up the veneer and i haven't been able to find the right length or grain. and plus, zebrawood apparently stinks like nasty when working with it. so, yea, i dropped that idea. and then i thought of doing a faux paint treatment to mimic the grain of zebrawood, but knowing my history, i'd probably mess it up. so a plain mirror it is!
