november wishlist

here's a little round up of things on my current wishlist (you know the drill: all under £30)

clockwise from top left

datter industries jewellery design

i love these designs from datter industries! all handmade in new york by illustrator kaye blegvad (the same woman responsible for this feather garland) i think they're so dainty and feminine but at the same time definitely keeping with my style. if someone's feeling generous i could really do with that tiny skull necklace, thanks!

tis the sequin season

so yeah i watch strictly come dancing, its not a guilty pleasure i'm too ashamed to admit, as well as its accompanying weekday programme 'it takes two' presented by the delightful zoe ball (she makes up for awful tess daly). now i'm not a huge fan of sequins but every evening i find myself loving what zoe wears, its always an awesome mixture of velour, leopard print,  leather and of course sequins, many many sequins. 

(apologies for the top two they were screen grabs from bbc iplayer) 

i admit that sequins aren't for everyone, maybe not even for me, but here's a collection of gloriously sequined treasures i've scouted from around the web and as per usual they're all under £30.00

clockwise from top left:
shoes / m&s / £29.50 - an affordable homage to miu miu
clutch bag / miss selfridge / £28.00 - this is my personal favourite.

and just in time for party season!

happy movember!

aren't these t-shirts awesome? if i had a guy i would definitely make him wear one of the cosmic ones..oh and make him grow a moustache. they're only £13.79, available from orange circle in a huge variety of colours and yes they do make women's versions too. 

more cushion for the..

ha sorry that title is a little crude but i do want to talk about cushions. i've blogged before about the excellent work coming from the fine cell work and i always appreciate a lovely cushion when i come across one shopping or browsing online yet, as you can see from above, my bed is pretty bare. i think these adorable matryoshka doll cushions would make a welcome addition.

if only they weren't so steep, i understand that these are from an independent seller (and actually relatively cheap in comparison to others) but even normally why is it that cushion covers are so pricey?  what would we do without primark, h&m home and of course ikea eh?

abundance of bunting

anyone who's my friend i.r.l. knows how much i love bunting, infact i was so on that trend before it blew up that i had to make my own bunting because i couldn't find anywhere that sold it, not for cheap anyway. FACT. now i want to try my hand at making word bunting 

or maybe ever paper feather bunting! looks rad huh?

(the inspiration for the feather bunting came from this etsy shop)

an autumn afternoon

caught up with my hometown friends this weekend, just by chance we were all back for the weekend so we went for lunch at bill's. it was so nice to catch up with everyone, it's so weird how we can go six months or so not seeing each other and then when we're all back together it feels so normal (does that make sense?) anyway, i thought this photo was lovely and really captured the autumn atmosphere that's crept up on us.

things i like but probably shouldn't: corduroy & ugly nails

(not to scale, obviously)

exhibit a) i came across this corduroy bag with a tassle in peacocks earlier (only £6.00!) and was strangely really drawn to it, have i gone wrong?
exhibit b) khaki nail varnish - i feel more confident that this one is fine (of course i went for the miss sporty version & not chanel. in fact, as cheap nail varnishes go miss sporty and collection 2000 are both really good, the former just needing 3 coats rather than the normal 2)

collar tips

i believe they're also available in silver and black. i think they add just that little bit extra to the plain white shirt.

the union of the snake is on the climb

dress: h&m / boots: celine / dress: love

a little bit of python print for a friday afternoon. i almost bought the dress on the left because of how much i loved the one on the right which is a bit out of my price range (as if you couldn't tell by now, i am that cheap) but chickened out because i thought i'd never wear it. now i'm kinda regretting it, although  i do prefer the LOVE one because i imagine the fit is super flattering. oh and the boots are just because a girl can dream...

edit: oh if anyone is feeling inspired and can pull off jumpsuits then yayer have this little beauty in their sale for £10.00...
