Summer Brights Wish List!

Posted on July 24, 2015

summer brights wish list

Hi Guys!

At the moment, I just can’t get enough of anything that’s bright, cute and kitsch. If it falls under the category of neon or novelty, I WANT IT. I need it in my life! I really feel like I’m clinging onto the summer with all my might – the weather is still hot and muggy, but unfortunately the sun seems to have ‘done one’ of late. And though I’ve been trying to be good when it comes to spending, I have actually been buying a few things recently… some beauty bits from some blog sales (all will be revealed soon) and some awesome new stationery from the US, which definitely falls under the cute and kitsch category! Hopefully my delivery will arrive soon so I can show you what I bought (and they’re all completely necessary, important things of course)

Is it just me or does anyone else spend a lot of time, and I mean A LOT, window shopping online, filling your virtual baskets with hundreds and sometimes thousands of pounds of gorgeous goodies, just to take things out of said bag one by one to try to make it affordable? Then realising you shouldn’t really be buying anything anyway, and you should really be doing the washing up / hoovering / dusting / insert relevant chore, rather than browsing thing you can’t afford?

Yeah I spend a lot of time doing that, hence my latest wish list! I’ve included some fantastic bargains, as well as a couple of more expensive items – well it is a ‘wish list’ after all! I hope you like!

  • Kitty High Top Sneakers from ShopJeen
  • Rib Cage Cuff 70mm from Cooee
  • Chiara Ferragni Glitter Pop ‘n Dog Slip-On Sneaker from Nasty Gal
  • Skinnydip Pineapple Juice Across Body Bag from ASOS
  • Cropped Stretch Cotton Trousers from Esprit
  • Geo Transparent Strap Watch from ASOS
  • Blue Tropical Print Ruch Side Mini Skirt from New Look
  • IRO Ashville Jacket in Coral from Trilogy Stores
  • Only Child Kaleido Crystal Ring from ASOS
  • Far Out Tie Dye Halter Top from ShopJeen

If you can recommend any other stores for similar goodies that I might like, please do leave me a comment and let me know!

I hope you enjoyed my post xxx

Hi Guys!

So I just happened to be browsing the Selfridges site the other day, lusting after all the gorgeous things that I can’t afford, and I happened to notice there seems to be a bit of a trend for novelty / comedy clutch bags at the moment. I remember the big hoo-ha about Moschino’s MacDonalds themed collection – would you want to sport the famous arches on your designer bag? Personally I wouldn’t, but each to their own. Anyway, Selfridges seemed to have quite a few fun and quirky clutches going on, Charlotte Olympia, the queen of quirky herself had a few fun styles to complement her awesome shoes. I LOVE the Eye Want You clutch. And Anya Hindmarch has a definite snacks based theme going on with her clutches – anyone for a ginger nut??

I’m afraid all these bags will set you back a small fortune, each, not for all of them. Unfortunately I can’t afford a clutch that costs more than a month’s rent, but I’m hoping the high street will catch up soon with their own nifty novelty offerings. I have checked out the usual suspects such as ASOS, Topshop and River Island, but the best I could find was an orange or lemon slice shaped clutch from New Look, as cool as this is it doesn’t compare to a tube of Rich Tea hanging off your arm!

So what do you think? Are these clutches awesome and fun? Or a bit silly and stupid? xx
