Wish Lists September 10, 2009

Hmm, this post has a rather unimaginative title – but sometimes needs must and an obvious title is the only way to go.

I have been thinking abut trends recently. Normally I am not all that bothered about them – after all, they will come and go in a matter of months, and what really lasts after all that time is style. This season, however, I keep wanting to buck my own trend, and buy into all the fashions that are being bandied about! And this is coming from a gal who doesn’t like 80s fashion, and who couldn’t wear shoulder pads even if she wanted to.

So, to keep myself from randomly buying everything in the world, I have decided to put together a wish list. These are the things I want, and the things I need. Not specific brands (these are for my eBay saved searches…), but the things that have slowly become coveted…

  1. Jeans. Boring, but necessary – I have none but my baggy cheapies!
  2. A leather skirt. There is something about this trend I keep leaning towards…
  3. Cage boots. Where would I wear them? God knows!
  4. A black dress. Just a plain black dress!
  5. A velvet dress – this trend is one I have always loved, and I must have a vintage one!
  6. A coat. My one is a grey, bobbly mess and has to be replaced.

 Defining a list like this helps me to keep a wrap on my wild desires. It essentially makes me more directed, which is good for a dangerous time like this where I have a real shopping vibe on!

So what things are on your must have list?

I’ve fallen in love with a Laura Ashley coat – gonna blog it later.

I do have a few velvet dresses – a black mini, a vintage black Laura Ashley, my teal Monsoon crushed velvet that I can’t WAIT to wear this autumn… I wrote a really long blog post about what they mean to be a couple of years back:

I figure you can never have too many though – they’re my favourites for winter!! I really want a 50s style red one, and maybe a lovely crushed cotton velvet one with a lace collar…

Oh god – you’ve set me off looking at ebay velvet dresses now!

Lovely, all of them!! That blc one above is beautiful, and technically a bargain at about £240 buy it now… but even so way beyond my price range!
