WISH LIST | January 2016

Happy New Year! I apologise for the lack of posts recently, the holidays and uni deadlines got in the way. However I have two weeks off now, so with New Year optimism and all that, I am determined to get back in the blogging game. I'm starting 2016 off with a wish list (shock horror) as we all need some new bits for a fresh year. Plus, there's nothing like a bit of retail therapy to keep the January blues away.

Let's talk about this Tobi shift. It's black (obviously) and has a beautiful 90s neckline. But it's star feature is it's split sides with lace up detailing. I been on the lookout for a new LBD and this one ticks all the boxes whilst being a unique choice. Gorgeous.

Next up is this shearling clutch from Topshop. I have been obsessed with faux fur this season and Topshop have been producing lots of furry gems recently, this clutch being one of them. The leather compliments the fur beautifully and I love it's unique spacious shape, meaning it can be carried during the day.

Surprise surprise it's Saint Laurent. When I was browsing Net-a-Porter I fell in love with this piece before I knew the brand. The only bracelets I wear are chain style, as I prefer edgy pieces to feminine. I love how the piece is made up of silver safety pins - a punky yet surprisingly elegant quirk. It would look perfect on a slender wrist, stacked next to a chunky silver watch.

These nude boots from Missguided are patent pleather with a perspex heel. They should look hideous with that description but I was instantly attracted to them. Maybe its the Dior vibe (remember those PVC thigh highs?) and the midi height, which cuts the calf off at a flattering length. I'll probably hate them next season, but for now I'm dreaming away...

So I - along with the rest of the female population - have been lusting after a Givenchy Antigona since they debuted, but this studded edition has pushed me over the (designer handbag) edge. There is something so classic about this sturdy black bag, and the embellishment adds a little edge. This one is in the cute "mini" size, but definitely has space for a wallet and day planner.

Sunglasses have become a frequent occurrence to my monthly wish lists, because like bags (see above... and above) I can't stop dreaming about them. This particular pair I first saw on Shani Grimmond, who could not stop making her weird grunting noises over them (its a good thing) and I can see why. I love the cat eye shape in bold matte black and the silver accents on the corners are a gorgeous detail. They would also go with everything, and I've been wanting a pair of Quay sunnies for ages due to their quality

What have you been wishing for in 2016?
