REISS shearling aviator jacket | CHEAP MONDAY leopard sunglasses | NEW LOOK high neck jumper | STEVE MADDEN bgrand handbag | MOTEL meadow slip dress | SAINT LAURENT line leather wallet
December is here! I'd love to enjoy this festive month but with the pressure of deadlines looming, presents to buy and work being busier and crazier than ever (I work part-time in a well-known British coffee chain) I haven't been able to stop and do all of that lovely traditional stuff. Hopefully it will calm down soon and I can drink mulled wine to my heart's content. This is also my pathetic explanation for the drop in blog posts - sorry! Onto the wish list...
I spotted this shearling aviator jacket on InTheFrow's blog and fell in love. I have been on the hunt for a black one for a while, but this muted grey number is a gorgeous alternative (also available in blush pink btw). It would go with absolutely anything - skinny jeans, a skirt, over a party dress - and keep you toasty warm in this bitter weather. At £895 it is out of my price range, but a girl can dream right?
Next up is a product that may be seen as more summer-appropriate. But I am a great believer in that sunglasses can be worn all year round. We do get those crisp, bright days in the UK where you are freezing to death yet still squinting in the sun. So these are totally justified. And if I drove, I would use that excuse too! I'm lusting after this particular pair due to the unique leopard print and blue lens combination. I also love the circle shape as I've found that this suits my face shape.
I tried this jumper on in New Look but it was too big (I'm a size 8-10 and put on a 12 out of desperation), then tried it on in the right size (8 if you're curious) but in blue. So naturally I've been regularly checking in on the website to see if they have it in stock. They haven't for the last week. So I'll list the reasons I love it to make it more painful:
1. It's a beautiful charcoal grey
2. It's high-necked (on-trend and cosy)
3. It's cropped (I like to pair high waisted and cropped pieces to focus on the waist - a lot of my looks are based on this)
4. Looks a lot more expensive than it is and...
5. I am in desperate need of knitwear as I don't have any and its f***ing freezing out there
I saw this Steve Madden bag on a recent 'What's In My Bag' on Lily Melrose's channel and was checking it out on a new tab faster than you can say "links in the description". I love the combination of silver studs and black leather (check out this OOTD for proof) and it's size, which sits somewhere between a bag for your phone and lipstick and a bag for carrying your laptop plus several folders around in. I think it would be perfect for daily use. It's separate compartments are handy and I also haven't had a bag with a long strap in a while, so I quite fancy one.
Next is this slinky number from Motel. I've had an eye out for dresses as party season is coming up and I haven't bought any partywear in aaages. This one caught my eye due to its gorgeous slip shape and the simplicity of the design. However the shininess of the material (which some may find gross but I think is 90s fabulous) keeps it from being boring. I think it will fit in nicely with my growing collection of LBDs.
The last item is this new season leather wallet from Saint Laurent. I know the colour is totally impractical but I think its stunning. The white with black detailing reminds me of the accessories in the LV Series 3 exhibition. I also really need a new purse as mine is on its last legs, and the Saint Laurent wallet has double the card slots, which as a self-confessed loyalty card hoarder is necessary.
