I want/need...

Shearling jackets. I've always wanted one and know it's socially acceptable to wear it elsewhere than a fancy dress party, thanks to good old Burberry earlier in the year. The one on the left is one I am coveting by Rick Owens at Farfetch but will never have the spare pennies as it costs about a million of them... The one on the right is from Topshop, still rather expensive but slightly more in sight than a little Rick Owens. After all a girl can dream right? (ie. Student loan day is very soon...)
I love Hermione De Paula at Browns, I've said it before and I'll say it again! The dress on the left is one of her beauties, even if I look like a bumpy mess in a skintight maxi dress I rather love this one, plus with the rose detailing it would create the illusion of a lovely figure (from the front at least). The dress on the right is along the same lines, a rose print maxi dress but with a cheeky bit of asymmetry and ruffles thrown in for good measure. It is from Topshop and £100 less than the HDP number, music to my ears!
These shoes make me swoon. The pair on the left are a little bit a-mazing and are Azzedine Alaia from Browns, I love perving on Browns... They're kind of like what a drag queen would wear to go camping, and I have fallen in love with them. The pair on the right are from ASOS and are about £800 cheaper... They haven't got the killer heel but would probably be more comfortable for day to day wear, I am so darned sensible.

I just needed to get that out of my system, I don't often post about things I want to buy but I couldn't help it, what are you lusting over right now?


  1. oh i do lust after these jackets. topshop moto have the cutest little denim/shearling waistcoat, sorely tempted! love miss hermione too x

  6. I love finding less expensive alternatives. It feels like a victory! This year I wish I had a shearling coat too- it's the first time ever I wanted one. Darn marketing and glossy ads have gotten to me!

  7. Ahhh, it would have to be Rick Owens and Alaia for me - and since I can afford neither I'm trying to steal the jacket from my sister. Wish me luck!

  10. Those shearling jackets would be perfect for the fall! Can't wait til it's cold so I can get one!


  11. I had a pair of hiker wedge boots but got bored of them so quickly because everybody had them and mine were, well, boring.
    I would love a pair of lace gloves and some chunky AMAZING wedges from Asos.


  12. i'm so trying to find some proper decent hiking boots for the wintertimess

  13. I bought the Toppers fake leather aviator (£58) but have changed my mind about it. Reckon we'll all be sick of them long before Christmas - stay strong! xx

  14. Oh Wowo I want everything on the left and that Rick Owens jacket is to die for. Xxxx

  15. I have a brown leather harness belt and some shearling wedge boots winging their way to me from ASOS as we speak! (I hope!!!)
