Fall Wish List: J Crew and the Gap Stores (or the time everything I wanted sold out)

It's no secret I have an issue with shopping online, especially when J Crew or Banana emails me with a sale. Which they do at least once a week, dang it.  I never buy anything unless it's at least 30% off anymore. Who said there was no upside to the recession? I think I get a different sale email every day of the week from J Crew, Banana, Gap, or Old Navy. I love that the shopping bags for the three Gap companies are linked, and you only need $50 for free shipping. I won't say how many times I've bought extra stuff just to hit that $50. #everytime.

Unfortunately, it seems that I'm not the only one who gets these emails, because between ads for new fall arrivals and a Labor Day sale, most of the pieces I was most excited about sold out. I blame Pinterest for the disappearance of this vest.
all sold out , sorry :(

I obviously don't have enough striped t-shirts, so here's a few more. And yes, that is the same t-shirt in two different colors.  I want both, and the navy and white stripes, duh.  I really hope peplum sticks around for a while--it is such a sweet and flattering look, and I didn't get to take advantage of it AT ALL last winter/spring since I was pregnant.  Have you ever seen a peplum on a belly?  Not cute.

It never gets that cold here, and I rarely wear anything other than a hoodie when it does--I have the worst problem with comfort dressing in winter.  But, it never fails that every winter I start majorly crushing on outerwear that I know I'll never wear.

Graphic critter sweaters are everywhere this fall, and the colors on this one are so fun and whimsical, although I am a little afraid of birds.  I bought a navy and white plaid shirt at Old Navy a few weeks ago, eagerly anticipating fall, and the fit is perfect. It is super soft, and I kinda want it in every color. I really want a vest to layer, and since the perfect J Crew Factory vest sold out, I'm on the hunt everywhere else. I don't know if the Old Navy one pictured above is too "tech vest" a la 1999, so I want to try it on in store. Also, I'm sorta crushing hard on this oxblood (I believe that's what we're calling it this season) color--so pretty with my new leopard fixation, army green, or striped with navy (fun fact, I want both of those oxblood and navy striped t-shirts above, I just bought one, and there's a blazer from Banana also on my wish list.  Hope that color trend doesn't fade too quickly!).
