WISH LIST | September 2016

I'm sure you've heard enough people lamenting about the arrival of September, but needless to say summer has flown by. I'm wearing my Zara off-the-shoulder dress as I write this, trying to ignore the coming transitional season. Anyway, onto the good stuff! What I've been lusting after in September, and I've been wishing for a lot of stuff lately due to the state of my bank account after a rather spendy summer.

First up, a bodysuit I spotted on another wish list by Emitaz (give her blog a peek if you like gorgeous travel, food and fashion photography) which immediately caught my eye due to it's beautiful blush colour. I also like the fact that the high neck compensates for the plunging middle, with a twist adding some interest. Bodysuits are great for pairing with high-waisted garments (no awkward lumps) and I think this pink number will look fab toughened up by a black leather skirt.

I keep on seeing others using Charlotte Tilbury's Colour Chameleons, and they look so easy to use, with such a gorgeous effect, that I need to get my hands on one! I was swatching them at a counter the other day, and the shade "Dark Pearl" really stood out to me. It is also designed for brown eyes (like yours truly) and looks like it will create a beautiful smoky eye... perfect for autumn! 

Next up, is this beautiful vase that Liv Purvis spoke about in a homeware haul. I loooove her style, even though she's into more feminine stuff than me, and when she pulled out this vase I immediately fell in love. I've wanted a vase for a while, because who doesn't love fresh flowers?! And I thought it would be the perfect item to bring back to my uni flat in October. It is stupidly beautiful, but is £30 too much to spend on a vase for a broke student?

Ok, ok so we have all been loving Gucci for quite a while now (can they do no wrong?) but I saw this backpack, which is the complete opposite to the Insta-friendly florals and thought it was perfect. Firstly, from a practical point of view, I'm on a shoulder bag ban at the moment, due to doing some damage to my poor right shoulder after years of lugging round heavy tote bags. It looks like it has a fair amount of storage, and a handy front pocket. And it's a classic design, so will last you more than one season, whilst the chain straps add something special.

Anyone that knows me well can tell you that I love:
1. Stupidly long acrylic nails and
2. Glitter (have you seen my dedicated Tumblr?)
So when I saw the Halo Hues collection from Color Club used in a tutorial, I had to put one in this wish list. They're reasonably priced, glittery, and HOLOGRAPHIC. I mean, if you're into nails, then you'll love this. I chose the shade "Miss Bliss" due to it's pink base, a colour I've been obsessed with recently. However, the entire shade range is desirable - I want them all!

Finally, I saw this stunning Self Portrait dress on Tamara Kalinic, and was captivated by the beautiful design. It comes in Self Portrait's trademark guipure lace, but the delicate straps and wrap-over detail make it different. I love the midi length, but the sheer lace panels mean that it isn't playing too safe. I think that this would be perfect for graduation or a wedding. I'm going to a Self Portrait sample sale soon, so I'm going to keep my eyes peeled for something like this!

What are you wishing for this month?
