A Want (but Don't Need) List

Jen-in-a-Cube. Is this considered a Peter Pan Collar?

I've been seeing posts about Peter Pan collars lately and discovered that 1) I didn't know this collar shape is called that and 2) I want a Peter Pan collar blouse or dress.

I've had a mental list of items with specific features that I would like, all due to perusing fashion blog after fashion blog. Now I will put that list to paper so-to-speak and share with you.

My Want List

1) Blouse or dress with Peter Pan collar (repetition for emphasis)--A Wednesday Addams-ish dress would be so me. But, a pretty pastel version like Brittany's would be nice for spring.

2) I didn't used to think I liked faux fur or animal print, but the latter has grown on me. Leopard seems to be the "in" print. I'm not sure if I want lots of leopard or just a touch. I like Melissa's dress (when going to get her link, I discovered that she featured leopard booties on Thursday), this coat Amber Lena is selling on Smashion, and Lizzy's top and belt.

3) A print of animals. This is different because it's a print of a whole animal (usually cartoon-like) in some sort of pattern like Kimmie's giraffes. I think this is too cute! I wonder if I can find a geoduck pattern to represent the PNW?

I know many others have rocked these different looks I've mentioned. I have an idea! Here's a Linky if you want to link up any of your posts featuring a look I've listed on "My Want List."

I think I may have a new Monday feature! Yeah, it's Sunday but I don't feel like scheduling this post for Monday for alliteration's sake: My Want List Monday Match-up. Next Monday! Plus, I'll keep up this post through Monday. Bam! How you like me now? Does it sound like a good Linky idea? Would you participate?

I'll determine and announce the winner of my TinyGoatStudios giveaway on Tuesday. Sorry for the delay!


  1. Hey Jen, thanks for linking to me! You know the belt was thrifted for $2 and the "top" was actually a dress that I cut into a top and used the extra fabric for a circle scarf all for $4! So head to a thrift store, I'm sure you'll be able to find some animal print for cheap!

  2. Hey! I'm listed there! Thanks, you! I can't believe no one has snagged that coat yet! I tried to squeeze myself into it, but my damn shoulders are too broad.

    Amber Lena
    outfits FOR SALE from $10!

  3. love love love animal prints! i just bought semi-sheer cheetah print scarf and i can't wait to wear it once the weather starts getting a bit warmer.

    if you're not sure whether to go big or small with prints, then i'd suggest starting off small. like a wrist cuff, belt or scarf. i these would look amazing with simpler outfits.

  4. Hi Jen. I was just stopping by to thank you for joining the Monday blog hop! But I also wanted to tell you how much I love the idea of your blog. Your tag line is hilarious! It truly gave me a "laugh out loud" because I can totally relate and I cannot tell you how many times I've heard that line in my own house {growing up with 3 sisters} lol. :)

  16. Thanks for coming by my blog and leaving the comment. I'm so glad to hear people make a vow and keep it. As for my wish list. I just want to lose weight and be healthy. Clothes always look better on me when I'm fitter.

  17. Hi, newest follower from Blog Hop. You are hilarious - love your header!

    You can find me here http://henryhappened.blogspot.com/

  18. I just got a print of animals cardigan but I think it gave me a rash. I am allergic to animals!

  19. I have ZERO animal print, ZERO peter pan/Wed Adamsness, BUT, I do have a giant cartoon monkeyhead. So I totally share in 2/3 of your covets.

    And yeah, I think that red up there counts as a Peter Pan collar, and I dig it.

  20. That is one glorious Peter Pan collar. I have loved them for as long as I can remember and although certain rubes have told me it's "a little girl look," I think it creates one of the most flattering frames for any woman's face. In other words, your look beautiful.
