03.03 little wishes

Hello, how’s your week going? UK lovelies…how amazing has the weather been the last couple of days? Finally a reprive from winter dullness!

Today I am sharing with you a few of the items off my current wish list. I’ve found myself veering away from clothes somewhat, having seriously run out of space and money
(we won’t talk about the bargain dress I bought yesterday in New Look’s amazing sale)
and moved towards the other essentials in life!


The one clothing items I AM desperate for is the perfect jersey maxi dress, and this one from Oasis at ASOS, £35 truly fits the bill. Perfect for layering now with tees and cardigans, and wearing bare armed with sandals all summer.



Also from ASOS are these two amazing pairs of tights, priced at £8 each they cost mroe than I normally spend on tights (mine typically come from Primark or majorly reduced in other places and rarely cost more than £2 a pair) but I WILL get these some way and some how!


Rounding off the ASOS lust is OPI nail polish in Absolutley Alice, £9.95. I own Mad as a Hatter from this collection and this is also calling my name.


Continuing on my Alice theme are these adorable earrings from loveheartsandcrosses a site I only came across the other day. Check it out…instant love. This pair costs £6.


And finally, what would a wish list be without a pair of shoes, and something from New Look? Well these cover both…one word…WANT. £35.

What are you lusting after? Any ideas for my next post? I miss posting outfits, though I’m sure you guys are glad of the reprive 😉

  1. I have been so glad of the nice weather has really cheered me up 🙂
    I love asos and those tights are really awesome!
    I want those shoes too =)

  2. I love reading other people’s wishlists, you get to discover so many goodies in the process!

    That maxi dress is gorgeous and like you said perfect for layering! And I adore the “alice” items such as the nail polish and earrings! What colour is your “mad as a hatter”? Maybe you could show us your nail polish collection next:P

    Those tights will make a wonderful addition to your already wonderful collection!


  3. Ooo the maxi dress is gorgeous, and so are the tights. I’m lusting over what winter boots to buy…so sad we are coming into winter in a few months and youguys coming into summer. Boo you suck! ha ha joking joking. x

  4. Those tights are quite alright. I want a pair!

  5. i love that nail polish! i’m constantly lusting over lululemon clothes :). not quite fasionable street clothing, but doesn’t stop me from wearing them as if they weren’t workout clothes haha

  6. Oh how cute are the rabbits..as for my wishlist, I’m still determined to track down the heart cardi and duckling necklace from topshop..and some heart pumps from monsoon..hehe but perhaps i should try on my other new things first.

  7. that maxi dress looks so sleek, yet comfy. Also, those comic book tights have got to be the coolest tights ever!

  8. The rabbit earrings are adorable. Sort-of glad maxi dresses are back too, although you will look far more elegant than I in one! Currently wisting apple print skirts on Etsy and a jersey weight fabric for making my own infinity dress. 🙂

  9. Oh I love those tights!!

    I think Topshop had something very similar to the jersey maxi dress but in a really lovely shade of blue. Maybe a bit more summery?

    I think I’ve got everything off my wishlist, hurrah!

  10. Ahh, I went to have a look in New Look the other day and I couldn’t find anything I wanted! But those shoes are gorgeous!!

    Also I agree, get the maxi dress. I think it’d really suit you.


  11. Kel

    I got a jersey maxi skirt from ASOS and can honestly say it’s the comfiest thing I’ve ever worn. Flattering and can even be worn as a dress come summer.
    I love all your wish list, those earrings are so cute!

  53. i need those tights!!!

  54. Hi :o)

    I forever lust after luminous pinks, unique ruffles that are free-flowing, and the colour brown which reminds me of chocolate! So, How about featuring unique designer jeans…like ones with buttons, rhinestones (i design a few rhinestone jeans) clutches with assorted jewerly and other objects, cute notebooks that are so fetish even the designer themselve didn’t want the stores to have them aha…….it’s just endless!

    But whatever you pick will be just as nice 🙂 I use to own a pair of pop art tights, where I also wore blue lipstick and 3 necklaces at a time. I was discovering my ‘flamboyant side’..now? I’m the simple chic chick that adores rain, lip gloss & simple FUN adventures.

    Have a lovely day 🙂
