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’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.

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…
