1.) I already have a pair of half-tint sunglasses but the perfect roundness of this 80s Purple pair is so good.
2.) I’ll be in San Francisco in late November so I’m going to need a heavier coat. Ideally I want something in an unusual color, so I’m really feeling the retro shape and slightly offbeat pink of this ASOS A-line coat.
3.) I’ve been spending a lot of time writing and recording music at home on GarageBand lately, and I really want a Stylophone — a pocket synthesizer invented in 1967 that’s operated with a stylus and has been used by artists like Kraftwerk and David Bowie. It’s cheap (about $20) and compact, perfect for hyper-amateur musicians on the go like me.
4.) If Chanel is any indicator (which it always is), pale blue will be a popular nail color for the fall/winter season. I like OPI’s “What’s With The Cattitude?”
5.) Well, these are skinny jeans with unicorns printed on them, so, nuff said.
6.) I’m completely obsessed with the UNIF Hellraiser loafer. It’s a little out of my price range but I’m considering saving my pennies because it’s basically perfect.
7.) Uh, everything about this Actual Pain “Immortal Mouse” tank is incredible.
8.) And how good would this Disney Couture “Minnie X Mawi” black pearl ring look with it?
9.) I’m doing a lot of traveling this fall and I want to start documenting my trips in different ways. I’m interested in getting an easy-to-use film camera like this Holga 120. I’m so used to the instant gratification of digital photography that I think taking film photos might lead to some good, or at least funny, shots.

Isn’t it awkward when you’re dressed almost exactly the same as a four-year-old girl at the pharmacy? Something tells me I should take that as a sign — a sign this outfit is totally awesome!
Topshop dress, Funtasma saddle shoes, Forever 21 cardigan.
This jersey dress from Topshop is so easy to throw on; the detail in the back makes it look fancier than it feels to wear it. Add some red lipstick — instant outfit.
The best part, though, is my handmade wild eyeball bracelets:
These are for sale in my Etsy shop, but I love them so much I kind of want to keep them for myself. I definitely have to go back and get more of these insane glass beads.

Here are a few things I have my eye on (yeah right, keep dreaming, Sara!) that fit in with the tough-femme pinky violence girl gang thing I’m kinda feeling right now.
1.) How cute are these Wayfarer-style sunglasses from Bumblebeee Tuna on Etsy, embellished with a Barbie-esque pink polka dot bow?
2.) I don’t have a motorcycle or a thousand plus to spend on a killer custom helmet, but if I did I would get one of these amazing French helmets by Atelier Ruby so fast your head would spin. Seriously mouthwatering. It looks like candy.
3.) These lightweight plastic balloon balls from Now, Voyager are hair clips and I’m kind of obsessed with how cute and strange they are.
4.) Actual Pain just plain makes some of the sickest tanks and tees around and I like this understated logo design.
5.) Urban Decay eyeshadow in “Hot Pants” is a sweet cotton-candy pink that would soften up a black leather jacket real nice.
6.) OK, full disclosure: I ordered these gorgeous calf hair Steve Madden “Westii” wedges before I lost my job. They’ll probably arrive in the next couple of days and I am really looking forward to the leopard-print pick-me-up.
7.) This “Ride With Me” crystal cuff from Betsey Johnson would look so good with that motorcycle I don’t have.
8.) Bunnies walking a dog on a bright pink sweater? What the hell? Topshop, I love you sometimes.
