Autumn Wish List

on Wednesday, 26 October 2011. Posted in Fashion, Wish List

Olivia from My New Favourite ThingTopshop Faux Fur Gilet

It’s been a while since I last posted a wish list; I think I’ve been trying to avoid the temptation to spend and the reality that I can’t afford to. Those of you who follow me on Twitter may have gleaned that my husband has been out of work. He was made redundant at the end of July and since then we’ve been doing our best to live frugally – very hard when you spend your days looking at lots of beautiful fashion available to buy online!

A Little Bit of Charity is Good for the Soul

on Tuesday, 11 October 2011. Posted in Fashion, Wish List

Giving money to charity is not something I object to, far from it, I willingly hand over my £2 a month to Cancer Research and the NSPCC, something that I promised myself I would do as soon as I started work. But the recession has brought out the frugalness in all of us; we’re now much less willing to hand over our hard-earned cash without careful consideration. That’s not to say that we’re not prepared to support charities, but perhaps we’re looking for alternative ways to do it. Step in the designer brands that are offering us the chance to treat ourselves to a little luxury whilst supporting key charities and helping raise awareness.

In my last post I showcased my Aamaya by Priyanka ring that I bought back in May. I was initially tempted to buy a different ring as the one I wanted was sold out, but as it was supporting Breakthrough Breast Cancer I decided to hold off and wait to see if any more became available. Happily more did become available and I was able to indulge my passion for statement rings and at the same time sleep well at night knowing that I was supporting a very important charity.

Aamaya by Priyanka

I hold Grazia magazine and my-wardrobe.com culpable for my latest obsession. Back in May I was cheerfully flicking through a copy of Grazia when I spotted this ring in their weekly fashion chart:

Aamaya by Priyanka Breakthrough Breast Cancer Ring

Before I’d even found out who the designer was, I had made up my mind that I wanted one!

After I’d gathered my thoughts and actually read the text that accompanied the picture, I discovered it was from Aamaya by Priyanka and this particular design was their Breakthrough Breast Cancer ring. According to Grazia they were available from my-wardrobe.com, so I quickly grabbed my laptop to check if they were still in stock, and to my dismay, they were sold out…

More New Arrivals

on Thursday, 13 January 2011. Posted in Fashion, Wish List

Although the wedding and honeymoon are over (and more importantly paid for!), I’ve still not been let of my very tight shopping leash. With a holiday to California in May and the prospect of moving house, my husband has been keeping a beady eye on all my outgoings – made ever easier by our new joint bank account (an apparent error in judgement on my part!).

That being said, it clearly works, I’ve never been so financially sound in all my life!

But it’s not much fun and it’s made considerably worse by the fact I spend my working life looking, writing and dreaming about the most beautiful and coveted fashion items available to buy online with a few simple clicks.

So when an email popped-up in my inbox from my-wardrobe.com with the title ‘More new arrivals’, I shouldn’t have looked should I?! But I couldn’t help myself... it’s for work purposes (honest!), so I had to take a look. I am the victim of my own demise at times.

Biker Chic

on Monday, 25 October 2010. Posted in Fashion, Wish List

A quick post from me to share my latest wish list item... this fabulous suede biker jacket from Isabel Marant.

Not something I'd normally go for, but I just think it oozes cool and I'll have some of that please! Not sure if I actually have anything that I'd be able to wear this with, but I don't care, I'll buy new clothes, it's not a problem.

Not sure if 'Biker Chic' is a style that will suit me, but for this jacket I'll happily give it a go!
