On My Radar
It's been a little while since I wrote a wishlist post (other than my Irregular Choice one), but a few things have been catching my eye recently. First up are these really cool Halloween themed bags from ASOS. You can pick up a 'Treat' slogan clutch £28 to keep your sweeties in when guising! I'm really loving this quilted bat clutch £18 complete with wings, despite the fact bats freak me out (two incidents with bats flying IN your house will do that to you). It's kooky, but not too Halloween-ish that you couldn't use it all year round.
Or if you really want to get thematic, how about this cute l'il pumpkin bag £18. Beats that hard work of carving one yourself in my opinion!
It's difficult to segue from a funky pumpkin bag to these shoes, so I'm not even going to try! I'm really, really loving RED Valentino, the line is so playful and pretty and girly, everything I love. I've owned a couple of pairs of RV shoes and have fallen for these floral embroidered courts £390 at My-Wardrobe. The shape reminds me of my pink satin Miu Miu's and I love the little lace ankle strap. I think they're gorgeous.
However my phwoar factor goes to this RED Valentino floral prom dress £624 which I've had my eye on for months. Ok, so I couldn't afford it and it wouldn't fit me anyway, but a girl can dream right? I love the bold and colourful blooms and the shape is just perfect. I'm going to be daring and declare it my favourite dress of the season!
Now for something I've already wiped off my wishlist. The Topshop Little Mermaid 'Ariel' PJ Tee £18. I had so much trouble getting this. It sold out in my size immediately, so I checked a couple of stores with no luck. I stalked the hell out of it, which we know I'm good at ; ) Until one evening I spied a 16 in stock and didn't hesitate. It's Ariel...on adult sized clothing, I need that shizzle!
I've been busy looking for clothes for my little sister, because she generally gets rather lazy about doing it herself and any kind of shopping (for me or not) is fun in my book! We've been buying jumpers by the truck load and she's so tiny that quite often even the kids sizes are too big! So there's been a lot of trying and returning. Anyway, I saw this Topshop knitted bunny jumper £45 and thought of her. I'm loving all the cute animal tops this season.
A Lulu Guinness lip clutch has been on my 'eternal wishlist' for years. It's one of those items I've always wanted, but the likelihood of me owning is slim. I quite possibly pawed the screen (!) when I saw this gold glitter one £245 arrive at ASOS. I love the shiny perspex version even more than the leather ones and the fact this is glittery too, is just amazing!
This Charlotte Olympia Pooch Clutch has been on my radar since the collection launched for Spring. It's just new in today at The Outnet with 50% off, taking it down to £97.50. I desperately wanted the poodle carved heels to match, because they were just bonkers and ridiculous! The Outnet have a poodle mule with 53% off and loads of other Olympia styles on the site today. I wonder if I could make my own poodle pouch?
There's lots of lovely unicorn themed things from Me & Zena at ASOS just now. I'm loving this chain ring £46, with the unicorn in the centre and a jewelled midi ring either side attached with chains. It's cute and quirky and...unicorns! What's currently on your wishlist and do you like anything here?
