My Shopbop Wish List for February 2013

by Irina on February 18, 2013

I can’t believe I skipped my monthly Shopbopls wish list feature last month! Shame on me! Especially since there are so many fabulous S/S 2013 arriving items each day right now! Can’t wait for spring already! This month’s wish list is slightly unusual for me because I felt extemely drawn towards Shopbop’s basics and accessories this time which is rare for me since I usually opt to include at least 2 or 3 dresses in my wish lists. I just love how versatile and timeless all the items I picked are! What do you think? Do you have any current Shopbop favorites of your own?

I’m a big fan of Stella McCartney! Very much like with Prada and Miu Miu I might not approve of EVERYTHING that is shown on the runways, but when I find myself liking something from these designers chances are high I really, really LOVE it. Case in point: Stella’s “Maia” cork wedge from last year. Despite the remote resemblance of Birkenstock shoes I am still highly attracted to this wedge. Also, how genius is the pink lining? It’s small details like these that can turn a good shoe into a truly great one. What’s not so great about it? Oh yeah, I forgot… the steep price of $735 for example. Also the fact that it’s sold out.

BCBGeneration “Crespo” Wedge Sandals

Thanks to BCBGeneration, we can now rock our own Stella McCartney wedges for a fraction of the price. Their “Crespo” wedge sandal is an almost identical copy of the “Maia” even though I wish it had the same hot pink lining as the original. But at $69.95 I am not one to complain. Available in gold, stone, black/white and light peach (shown below).

I am completely smitten by Liv Tyler‘s Stella McCartney Polka Dot cocktail dress. It is so chic and you don’t need that much to accessorize it, just a sparkly pair of drop earrings, a cute clutch and some classic black pumps. This dress is sexy, but it also leaves a little bit to the imagination with its black sheer sleeves and flirty details around the waist. Can’t wait to wear the look to your next cocktail party? Check out our look for less below!

This dress is why I love Stella McCartney because it totally screams my name. This burgundy fitted peplum dress is 100% and I’d so buy it if my budget would allow such a hefty purchase. Which it does not, unfortunately. Sad,sad me!

The sadness doesn’t last too long though as there are great Stella McCartney look-a-likes by Closet available and just waiting to save my budget! I’m absolutely in love with the blue version of this dress and now I’m debating whether there’s enough room in my wardrobe for yet another blue dress (I have so many now that it’s getting slightly ridiculous!).

So how fabulous does Charlize Theron look here? Very, I’d say. I absolutely adore her emerald green wool sweater by Stella McCartney and the ivory YSL Roady hobo, so I decided to recreate Charlize’s shopping look on a more budget-friendly basis. Let us know what you think!
