The last Item of the winter 5 has arrived and I'm ready to begin the shopping fast.
The Five
1. Guess puffer- Nordstrums. Wanted a non black or grey coat, love the lacing detail under the arms.
2. Rick Owens jeans- Yoox. the details on these are awesome.
3. Helmut Lang cardi- Ebay.
4. Helmut Lang top- Ebay. I love HL from a few years ago, but in fall 15 they changed away from their drapey awesomeness.
5. Nike Rosche flyknit.
The Essentials
1. Geox top- Century 21. The sleeves are sheer past the elbows and have thumholes. This is an underlayer that I don't plan to wear alone.
2. Express lace up jeans- Express. They have carried these in the past. They discontinued them just as I was going to pull the trigger. The higher waist is really good for me.

I feel ready now to start the shopping fast. I will likely abstain from purchasing in March as well. I'll begin planning my S/S five in April. I plan to do some sewing in the meantime.
I'm also going to reclaim my WIW spot, which got lost in setting up a desk in my spare room.
