Thrifty Thursday- My Fall Wish-List

Since the birthday that officially marks the beginning of my mid-twenties is in two weeks, why should I kick-start a fall wardrobe with my own money? Instead, I can just make a wish list and give it to my gift-givers to "surprise" me with! 

Now I know that might sound a little spoiled-brat-ish, but I certainly don't expect lavish gifts. Making a wish list only serves as a shopping inspiration guide for my family members AND for myself this  season. If I'm gifted with only one of these items (or an item similar to any of these), I will be more than happy. And if I'm gifted with none of them, then I guess I'll have to buy them myself after all!

For this fall fashion season I'm inspired by a rock-and-roll aesthetic.  I'm drawn to metallics, funky colors, and punky jewelry.  Mixed with some classic pieces, I can incorporate these new, trendy items into a cold-weather wardrobe that is 100% Elle Michele.
