Wednesday wishlist

Doesn’t time fly quickly? It feels like only yesterday that I was writing the last one of these, more of which can be found here. Let’s start with a dress, shall we?

High Socie-tea dress in Floral, $64.99 Modcloth.com

 

This week’s Wednesday wishlist is inspired by this beauty I saw on the Modcloth website. It’s getting colder these days and this dress is the perfect one to wear through the late summer months and into the autumn. And at only $64.99, which works out at around £38, it’s a bargain. If you’re more interested in pastels though, Modcloth sell a similar dress in ‘macaron’. What’s not to love?

Next up is the perfect bag to accompany this dress. This one is from Brit-Stitch and the eye-popping red colour will certainly draw attention to any outfit, but that’s all part of the fun, right? Brit-Stitch bags are handmade in the UK, so buying one also means supporting a local business. Plus, it’s always worth following the brand on Twitter or Facebook, as that’s where they post links to special offers and discounts, such as their recent flash sale.

Kontrary Red Patent Mary Jane shoes, £14, Office

I’ve been dreaming of a pair of bright red shoes for ages now and these, from Office, are the perfect ones. Team these with a summery dress, such as the Modcloth one above, or some indigo jeans and enjoy the attention you get while wearing them. These do however remind me a little of Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz. I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or not.

What’s on your wishlist this week? I love reading posts like this, so send any links my way.

Wednesday wishlist

It’s Wednesday, it’s midweek and we’re all feeling the effects of tiring ourselves out over the bank holiday weekend. In the spirit of cheering us all up, and since I often pore over shopping websites on my lunch hour, I thought I’d introduce my wishlist for the week. In amongst all the craziness of the past week, these are products that I’ve been dreaming of buying.

Firstly, who doesn’t love a good quality leather bag. This one from Brit Stitch is a keeper, that’s for sure. The colours are great, the size is perfect for day trips and I love the little heart.

I’m a sucker for any kind of brogue. I think I actually own a stupid amount of these shoes, but don’t yet have a two-tone pair. These Bertie Lilirose ones would be perfect for adding to my collection.

This Aubrey Rose skirt has been a favourite of mine for a little while now. It’s floral design is perfect for summer and for flaunting those tanned legs. Plus, it would be perfect for sunny day picnics.

Zatchels flash sale

Lilac satchelIf you’re anything like me and have an addiction to satchels, then head over to the Zatchels website this weekend, as they have a flash sale happening right now, with up to 70% off on some bags. They had a similar sale on last year and I took advantage, picking up this beauty for a bargain. I won’t be buying any satchels this year as funds won’t allow me to, but I hope some of you will instead.

Remember, the sale is only on for this weekend and prices will return to normal then.

If you’re not into satchels, there are plenty of other bags on sale too. Here are just some of my favourites:
