I haven't posted much recently, but I decided I would try something a bit new for my blog. I haven't done any wishlist/'lusting after' posts before, so I thought I'd give it a go! I love window shopping online, even if some of the shops are a tad out of my price range. I probably spend more time browsing online shops for fun than I do actually looking to make a purchase (partly because I'm cheap and am trying to save money!).
And, before I start, I only realised after I'd chosen the items to feature that all but one are black -- oops!
I love this form fitting Alice By Temperley embroidered mesh black dress. It's such a lovely classic style, but the embroidery and mesh give it a slightly edgy feel. I actually hate to use the word 'edgy', but can't think of a decent synonym for it at the moment.
I've begun a search to find the perfect cream trench for this spring and this one from Miss Selfridge is ideal. I love the contrast between the lovely shade of cream and the dark buttons. A light trench is such a classic piece, I could think of a million ways to wear one! And while I love my black one, I'd like to find something a little lighter for springtime.
I completely adore this lace dress by The Pretty Dress Company. With the beautiful black lace, satin belt, and boat neck, to me, this dress is the epitome of femininity and class. It actually reminds me quite a bit of a dress Kate Middleton wore last June, except in black rather than beige.
And I know I've already included two black dresses, but I couldn't not add this one, as well! As you may know, I usually go for form-fitting clothes but I absolutely love this dress, despite it being unlike most of the dresses I'm usually attracted to. The lovely lace, transparent sleeves and upper portion, and the elegance of the black chiffon of this Topshop dress make this it of my most lusted after items.
And finally, the last item I chose for this post is this DVF coat with a fur collar. I know most people are looking forward to spring fashion at this point, as am I, but I have something of a year-round appreciation for beautiful winter coats. And while I don't particularly love the idea of wearing real fur, I think it's still possible to admire such a beautifully designed coat from afar, no?
