Sometimes you just want to look at pretty things.
With cold weather finally settling in over Charlottesville, I’ve turned my thoughts to things that are warm, versatile, and easy to layer. I normally try to create lists that are right in the comfort zone of my budget, but this month, I just want to dream a little – and celebrate good, ethical design based on design and function without worrying so much about price point.
That being said, there are certainly a few affordable options in this list, and some things – like that winter coat – that would work themselves out with cost-per-wear over time.

MY WINTER SPLURGE LIST:
1. Axiology Lipstick in Elusive, $28.00
Rad ’90s orange red that also hearkens the ’70s, two eras that have come back in full force this season.
2. Kendra Cable Knit Sweater, $228.00
Classic, thick, and warm.
3. Kings of Indigo Juno Skinny, $168.00
I am really digging a more classic cut that isn’t quite as tight at the ankles, and the mid rise is much more comfortable for all day wear.
4. Komodo Egea Coat, $249.99
Just stunning, and the lack of lapel feels modern.
5. Fair Indigo Alpaca Scarf, $49.90
I loooove alpaca to an unhealthy degree, plus its sustainable and cruelty free.
6. Dorsu Long Sleeved Top, $24.99
A great basic for layering.
7. Fair Indigo Top, $42.90
The berry color is seasonally appropriate and the fit and design look versatile. Dress it up or dress it down.
8. VEJA Esplar Velcro Sneaker, $135.00
I don’t know why I like these, but the black leather is cool and the velcro is appealing. I hate having to lace up my shoes in the morning.
9. Fair Indigo Keyhole Dress, $75.90
Pretty color and a classic, feminine silhouette.
10. Bhava Coco Wedge Bootie, $199.00
A low, walkable wedge that would pair with anything.
