Wishlist #1

1. Topshop £28 // 2. Topshop £28 // 3. Office £105 // 4. Asos £100 // 5. Topshop £16

This is wishlist is a perfect example of want not need, although, sometimes it is quite hard to draw yourself away from an item you’ve been lusting over and remind yourself to distinguish between those two feelings. I’ve ventured into town on a Saturday the past two weeks running for shopping purposes and yet I haven’t came back with any clothing, make up – yes but, for me it’s clothing over make up on mostly all occasions. It seems that whenever I have money I am willing to spend, the shops aren’t up to scratch, anyone else feel this way? I’m sure it can’t just be me. Even if there are a few items that catch my eye, they always seem to not have them in my size or they’re way to expensive… the pains of shopping. Yes, I know i’m being way too overly dramatic, but it’s the way it is.

What would be a wishlist without topshop eh? My favourite shop hasn’t been the glorious place I know it to be in the past weeks, for me anyway, the clothes just haven’t been that exciting, it’s probably because of the time of year… I can’t wait for Spring/Summer. Anyway, I was browsing online for clothes (as i usually do, at least once a day…) when I came across these lovely items. I love the white crotchet top from topshop, it would be a great piece to wear with shorts or high wasted disco-pant look jeans. Imaging the outfit is making me picture sunny beaches with a warm breeze and ice cream, so relaxing…

On one of my trips into topshop I tried on the acid wash denim skirt, I had to resist the urge to purchase it as I knew that I wouldn’t get any use out of it until April (if we’re lucky in England) I’m hopeful that it’ll remain in stock as it is a summery item. This would also fit perfectly with the crotchet top…. ahhh spring please hurry!

Even though i’d say i don’t own an excessive amount, I have a great weakness for shoes. These lust worthy Jeffrey Campbell shoes are heaven (or rather hell) to me, I have a bit of a spikes/studs obsession too and I love black… I just wouldn’t be able to go wrong with these. I don’t think that Jeffrey Campbell shoes are a ridiculous amount of money, especially this pair… I might just have to save up for them.

I love the Cambridge Satchel Company, their bags are lovely! I found this greyish pale green design on asos, I usually stick to black bags so I would love to have this, especially to pop a little bit of colour into all black outfits. This particular bag is exclusive to asos and it is priced at £100, not too much eh?

Finally, I came across this skirt a few weeks back and almost ordered it online, I didn’t though and I have since to see it in the topshop i travel to in my city. I love the pale lilac/pink colour, perfect for spring/summer (seeing a bit of a trend here?) It’s only £16 which I think is an amazing price for topshop!

The items featured on this wishlist are mostly spring/summer friendly but the prices are a real mixture, some are affordable and some are more pricey. I am more of a gothic look loving kind of girl, I’ll definitely still be wearing dark colours in the summer time, I don’t see anything wrong with it – I’m not a big trend follower, I wear what I like. As spring/summer approaches I’ve been loving lighter colours but, when i picture outfits in my head inspired by one particular item I always see myself darkening it up with spiked boots, acid wash anything or a leather jacket, I don’t think I am an entirely delicate look loving person.

Topshop SS13


   29  28

Topshop’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection first look shots look mystical. Topshop never fail in being unique and they certainly don’t disappoint this time. The collection is clearly inspired by the 90s and the clothes give of a gothic vibe. I personally LOVE the 90s and the grunge-gothic look, so of course – i love the look of this!

I have flicked through all of the shots available on http://www.company.co.uk, and have picked out two of my favourite looks.

I love how topshop have mixed the dark grunge colours and styles with mystical prints and colours, it might seem like an easy thing to do but i think the pieces complement each other perfectly. I love how they have layered the black jumper over the colourful print and paired it with a chunky neck piece and ankle-boots.

My Favorite look of them all though, has to be the one with the brightly patterned coloured jeans, the print reminds me of space… or sherbet. I love how there are so many different ways to how you could style these jeans. You could clash them with a printed top or you could simply wear an over-sized black jumper to make the jeans the key piece. Another idea i like is wearing a crop top and an over-sized chunky knit cardigan with the jeans, finishing the look with creepers.

Pixie Lott

I love Pixie Lott, i always have since Mama do was released. I honestly don’t listen to her music as often as i used to now, but i still really like it. People say i sound like Pixie Lott when i sing… and i take it as such a huge compliment, i’ve never really thought i do, i just sing how i sing.
The main thing i love about Pixie Lott is her style, i love what she wears, especially from 2010 onwards, i think her style has evolved. She loves the ’60s and say that they inspire her a lot but, she is also quite edgy… and that’s what i love. She wears a lot of vintage inspired clothes and gives them an edgy twist.
I remember watching this video a few months back and i came across it again today, i’d forgotten how much i really love her outfit (picture on the left) in the interview part of this video… the big white collar shirt worn underneath the green and black tartan dress which is fastened with enchanting silver pearl buttons. Her shoes are amazing as well, i love the shape and the heel of them, the colour and fabric just match perfectly with the outfit, red velvet, ahhh. The dainty frilly white socks that flow out of the top of the ankle boot just accent the whole outfit, especially the white shirt. Ahhhhhh heaven.

Jumpers & boohoo.com

 I have a growing obsession with jumpers. I have never really been much of a knitwear wearing kind of person but this winter i am starting to become very fond of knitted items. My ‘style’ has changed this year, (i don’t know why but whenever i use that word to describe something about me, i cringe, probably because of my old msn name ‘girl_with_style oh the year 7 days.) Anyway, i have been searching around for jumpers and knitwear, this includes big knitted cardigans. I purchased a big cream knitted cardigan from asos last month and i literally never want to take it off, i am completely in love with it. I think that started off my obsession… i can tell my wardrobe is going to be filled with over-sized items of clothing, at least i’ll know i’ll be warm!

I was looking through boohoo.com, on the knitwear section (of course) when i found this (the picture on the left), i was drawn to it immediately. I love the colour and the shape, the material looks perfect. It fits the picture of the imaginary jumper i’ve been lusting over except, it’s not imaginary anymore. I want it, i want it now and i’m hoping to order it, right this second – i wish. The price of this item makes it even more real, it’s only £20.00 which i think is fair, even more than that, actually!

I have ordered from boohoo.com quite a few times and i am always pleased with their delivery and the quality of their clothing, their prices are simply just a bonus.

Velvet dress

Velvet dress
I really really want this dress.
I was looking on missguided.co.uk yesterday when i came across this.
The dress is velvet; i am in love with velvet but i couldn’t seem to find any nice dresses/skirts… until now.
This dress comes in two colours, Burgundy and Black. I prefer the Burgundy as i think it brings out the glisten and texture of the fabric more so but i do love the black version of the dress too.
Unfortunately, the dress is sold old in nearly all of the sizes in burgundy, no surprise as it is in my opinion, very reasonably priced at £18.99.
I’m anxiously hoping that the dress will be back in stock soon.
I have also added a pair of shoe boots from missguided to this look, i think that they would go really well with both dresses. The shoes are £35.99, i am also wishing to purchase these too.

Studded Shirt

I am obsessed with studs, i love studded bracelets, shoes, bags, clothes… anything.

I put this outfit together, everything is from boohoo.com and all of the items are affordable. I am ordered this outfit, i love it so much. I haven’t used any accessories in this because i think that jewelry is more experimental and changes more compared with different tastes.

Here is a list of the items shown:

Shirt – £20.00 – http://bit.ly/UK2izA (click the link to see item)

Skirt – £12.00 – http://bit.ly/QSKr5z (click the link to see item)
