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.
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.
I haven’t posted in awhile, i’m sorry- doubt that anyone is going to read this anyway but, i feel really inspired to post.
There are so many clothes that i really want but obviously i cannot afford all of them since i have no job, i am only fifteen anyway… and being in year 11 would mean more work that i already put off now.
It seems though, that whenever i actually have money, there’s nothing that i actually really want to buy, but when i have no money whatsoever, i find so many lovely clothes that i lust over. As i said in a previous post, ASOS, Topshop and Missguided are the main shops where all my money is spent.
Another thing that i’ve recently found is Company magazine, i picked up an issue last month as i was drawn to the cover, it looked so pretty in pastels and flowers and of course the gorgeous Fearne Cotton featuring on the cover, i really loved everything in the magazine – it was like a perfect match with me. So, i purchased this month’s issue and it’s even more amazing. It also features a piece on ‘how to get a job in fashion’ i was so happy as that’s what i’m aiming for, besides aspiring to be a musician, if only…
