A/W wishlist

I think you will notice a theme with all of the items on my A/W wishlist... I'm more than a little obsessed with anything black at the moment and if it has studs on it then it will be making its way into my wardrobe. A/W trends are usually far too sparkly for me but this very rock and roll studded trend is just up my street. I'm looking forward to mixing it with velvet and possibly a military style jacket in khaki but I'm going to be avoiding roll neck jumpers and padded/quilted items, yuk!
aw 2012 bowler hat, studded bag, cross bracelet

The t-shirt is a Orphan's Arms design which you can buy on ASOS or through their own site. I want to thank Caroline for introducing me to the brand through her blog, really can't get enough of them. I think the witch design is perfect for autumn and I was a kid who was obsessed by witches, I used to get in trouble for adding water to plant pots and stirring dirt in and pretending it was my cauldron. I always wanted to go to Miss Cackle's Academy for Witches too... The hat is another ASOS buy, I've never really worn a hat before so I might need to try this one on. The bag and bracelet are real budget finds. The bag is only £8 in Select and the bracelet is about £3 in F21.

aw 2012 black, leather, topshop zip up dress


I've been on the lookout for the perfect winter shoes that I can wear to work or on a night out and I think these Blink ankle boots are just the right pair. They are real leather and will be really long lasting, can't wait to get my hands on these.
I wasn't entirely sold on the pleated Primark pleather skirt that lots of people have, I think it would stick out on me and I like my skirts quite long so I'm tempted by this Select one. It's £15 but I would get 15% off with my UniDays discount which makes it a bargain. The dress is from Topshop and is under £30, I love the zip detail and I will be getting this for nights out and paring it with some studded shoes and red lippy for a splash of colour.

Are you looking forward to Autumn/Winter fashion or are you hoping for an Indian Summer?

  7. Last week I felt a bit sad that the shops were starting to fill up with their autumn clothes when I felt that we hadn't even seen the summer, but when it comes around I love being able to snuggle up in warm winter clothes!
