this season is one of my all-time favorites in retail. fall clothing is the best, in my opinion, and i always look forward to seeing the august releases. i'm starting to realize that it may all be in my subconscious, though.. because august was when my parents always took me back to school shopping! it was the one time of year that i got pretty much whatever i liked, because i "needed" it for school. so, even though i'm past school (even college), i still get the urge to back to school shop around this time of year. working in retail doesn't help really, since i spend most of my days helping high school kids do their back to school shopping.
this is what's on my handmade/vintage back to school shopping wish list:
thief and bandit is actually moving, and the shop will be closed until the end of the month, but i pretty much love everything they make (i got becca the cutest dress for her birthday this year), so i had to include them.
