Fall Florals

Wish Fall Florals

Although the weather is getting cooler and the skies are getting darker earlier, it does not mean your wardrobe has to feel that way too. Fall Florals are here to the rescue to save you from the dreary days ahead. This trend is huge this season in all forms such as tops, dresses, and scarves. Rebecca Taylor, Tibi, and Joie are incorporating this into their Fall 2014 collections. Many of these “floral arrangements” are more muted with shades of grey, blush, lilac.

We do carry bolder versions too like this Trina Turk dress below with pops of black and red.For a more subtle option, try the dress on the below right with a classic silhouette.  Either one can take you from a day event to an evening wedding.

Cait & SamWe are having so much fun with Fall Florals here at Wish! Now tell us, what do you think of this trend this fall? Let us know! xoxo

Leather Weather

Plaid is not the only hot trend of Fall 2014. Leather is back and here to stay! All of our designers from Velvet to Rebecca Taylor, Splendid to  Tibi, and even Three Dot are showing styles this fall incorporating this trend.

Leather WeatherIf you are looking for a bold look, Velvet makes an incredible Vegan leather collection. It looks and feels so real without the shininess and lack of texture that you will find by many other brands. The Zip Jacket and Sheath Cut Out Dress (shown above) are gorgeous options that will go the distance this fall and winter.

 

Leather AccentsFor a more subtle way to incorporate this trend into your wardrobe this season try Splendid’s tee with a faux leather collar. It pairs back perfectly with AG Jeans or your favorite cords. Three Dot also has the perfect ponte knit legging with a faux leather strip running down each side. All you need to do is throw on some cozy cashmere and boots and you are out the door looking chic and feeling comfortable.

All these styles are currently available at Wish! It’s time to embrace the chill and fall in love with this season’s best looks! xoxo

It is officially starting to feel like fall! We have lived in our nautical stripes all summer long, and now that it is cooler another stripe has made a big comeback: PLAID.

Plaid Wish

This style will be our “go-to” look paired with our favorite leggings or AG jeans this season.When the temperature drops more we will layer it under our favorite cashmere sweater. Every single one of our brands has incorporated this reinvented trend into their fall collections. Above we have listed our favorite plaid pieces from Velvet, Joie, and Equipment! Pumpkin spice latte anyone?

Get Your Head In The Game

Happy official summer!!! We are loving this sunshine, but the heatwave is really reminding us that we need to protect our skin so that we can have plenty of long, hot summers ahead of us. We just got in a new delivery of our favorite Hat Attacks and whether we are dressed up or dressed down, you will always find one of these on our pretty little heads!

Hats

While hats do a great job at protecting the scalp and face, we like to take it a step further just in case. These are our MUST HAVE sunscreens and sunglasses of the moment.

Sun

 

1. DVF Zoe Chainlink Oversized Glasses: DVF has done it again. We love the size and shape of these beauties!

2. Neutrogena Beach Defense: This little pocket sized sunscreen works in a BIG way. The stick glides over your face, offering you 50+ SPF.

3. Ray Ban Aviator Flash Lenses: We can not get over these glasses. The bright pop of color is perfect for summer and works perfectly even with a white tee and your favorite AG jeans!!

4. Loreal Advanced Suncare Silky Sheer BB Face Lotion: Not only does this lotion smell yummy, but it works as an BB Cream does, giving you a smooth complexion while giving you 50+ SPF.

 

What are your must haves for protecting your head in this hot, hot heat?

Staycation

We all need a break, especially in the summer. The city starts to empty out, but we have found ourselves stuck, with work or children or hectic schedules preventing us from a getaway. But who says we need to actually go anywhere to have a little fun? We are sharing some of our FAVORITE getaway spots and activities with YOU, along with a few Wish items to help complete your great escape!

1. Ella Moss Tali Maxi Dress- $188: We have this gorgeous maxi in Olive & Black and just love how comfy it is!

2. Milly Strapless Linen Dress- $295: Because nothing is better than chic AND chambray!

3. Joie Marcher Top- $188: Perfect for a warm evening roaming our beloved Boston

4. Buji Baja Beach Throw- $50: These aren’t JUST for the beach! Throw it in your bag for a picnic in the park.

1. Summer time and the living is EASY. Eat outside, kick your shoes off, stay awhile!! Lay out your Buji Baja beach throw and people watch in Public Garden. We are also huge fans of Central Bottle, where $75 gets you a picnic basket full of charcuterie and wine or beer!

2. Craving a little Vitamin D but have no time to drive to the Cape? We like to sneak away to Carson Beach to take a dip and play a little bocce. INSIDER TIP: The Tasty Burger nearby will deliver right to your towel…. SHH

3. Our parents taught us to expand our cultural horizons in the summer so our brains don’t turn to mush. So we are always seeking out a good festival, where learning and fun can happen together… who knew? This summer, you can definitely find us at Chefs in Shorts (June 20th in Seaport), WGBH Craft Beer Festival (July 12th in Brighton) and the August Moon Festival (August 10th in Chinatown).

4. Is there anything better than a cool dip on a hot summer day? We love hanging out on the Rooftop at Revere Hotel, where the swimming is indoors but the dining is outdoors. We also love the evening atmosphere at The Colonnade, where you can swim until midnight on the weekends!!

Easy Breezy Summer Days

Our summer style can be defined as easy and chic. We love being able to just throw something on as we are walking out the door and still looking gorgeous. And, more often than not, we find ourselves gravitating towards our Joie pieces. This summer, Joie is doing a lot of flowy, breezy pieces with blues and stripes. These are some of our favorites that just arrived at Wish TODAY!   1   2   lobster   -R.Mersiowsky

Four Stars For…

Wedding Season!!

Like every other girl, we are obsessed with weddings. Everything from the fancy dresses to the beautiful bride to dancing the night away. What we don’t love? The stress that leads up to it as a wedding guest. What do you wear? What is appropriate to give as a gift? Here are some of our favorite ideas!!

 

The Dress

Even if it is a little old fashioned, we won’t be breaking the “no white to a wedding” rule just to keep our mothers happy. If it is a city wedding, we try to stay classy and chic. Beach weddings are perfect for breaking out that maxi and sandal. Country weddings call for COLOR and fun patterns! These dresses are all wedding appropriate and can be found at Wish!weddingFINAL

  1. Calypso Azen Dress $275
  2. DVF Oblixe Mini Wrap $375
  3. Trina Turk Leah Dress $266
  4. Milly Slim Sheath $398

 

The Gift

If a couple went to all the trouble of tagging all of Pottery Barn and starting a registry, we highly advise sticking with that. But if the bride is one of your besties, we like the idea of getting her something special before the wedding, like these ideas!weddingFINAL2

  1. Pinch Provisions Minimergency Kits: These guys really have thought of everything. They have specific kits for brides, bridesmaids, grooms, groomsmen, MOBs and flower girls. This tiny kit is packed with things you never thought you might need, like bobby pins, stain remover, extra earring backs, hairspray and pain reliever. Have a really unprepared bride? This Bridetastic kit is packed with 101 emergency essentials!!
  2. Bar Cart: Get the newlyweds something they wouldn’t think about needing! This bar cart from Society Social is ADORABLE, plus you can custom color it to the couple’s liking. Don’t want to splurge? Go in with friends and deck out the cart!!
  3. Monogram ANYTHING: We would put a monogram on everything we own if it was possible. With a new last name, that’s a whole new monogram! Moon & Lola does the prettiest monograms in all colors and sizes.
  4. Margaret Elizabeth Bangles: Personally, we wear these every single day. They dress up even the simplest of outfits. But put the moonstone and aqua chalcedony together and it screams I’M GETTING MARRIED! This will be our first stop before we head to the altar.

Warby Parker x Effort Not Required!!!

Spring always brings a smile to our faces and we love when we are able to pull out our sunglasses and wander Boston aimlessly. We got introduced to Warby Parker about a year ago and have been huge fans since Day 1. The concept itself is awesome; for every pair of glasses purchased, they donate a pair to someone in need. They firmly believe in doing good. This year, we got the privilege to test drive their Summer Collection, themed Effort Not Required. After picking out our Top 5 favorites for the Home Try On, they arrived at our door 2 days later. We had a ton of fun playing in the Public Garden with Wish’s latest styles while rocking our favorite Warby Parker’s! Which do you love most?
