There's something about the seasons transitioning that makes me want to shop even more than normal - something I wouldn't have thought was even possible! But it is possible and today I'm bringing you another wish list...

There are three dresses on this page - two from Topshop - the black sixties number with the embellishment and the autumnal floral one. These would both do great for every day wear - the first with black tights and flats and the second with some ankle boots. They're probably just fancy enough that they could take you out for drinks or something after a day at uni/work, but they're not showstoppers in that sense. The Chi Chi Lottie dress is though - I've featured it here in black but the Verity dress is the same dress essentially in cream. they're both unbelievably beautiful and would be gorgeous at Christmas and New Year parties (yes, I went there!) The cream is definitely something different colour wise, a way to stand out in a sea of LBDs, but I'm not sure if it's too bridal?!

As for shoes since this is a wish list I decided just to show you my heart's desires... These Valentino shoes are just beautiful - the colour means they'll go with everything and the Grumpy design on the heel is obviously right up my Disney-loving street. The highly embellished pair are just breath taking beauties by Dolce & Gabbana who designed my favourite ever pair of shoes (you can see my talking about them in my Closet Confidential Tag on youtube!)  As such I have a lot of love for all Dolce & Gabbana shoes but at £1,660 these ones will remain firmly in wish list territory!

The flat shoes are both from Jack Wills - navy here and tan here. They're both excellent quality shoes so I think I'll be investing in them both, life is too short and the Scottish winter too wet for the Topshop flats I used to live in!

Speaking of wet winter weather - these DUO ankle boots WILL be mine! They're a highly justifiable purchase after all! I've had my other pair of DUO boots for about three years now and they're still in perfect condition, so I have no hesitation in buying another pair even though they are fairly expensive. I was actually at a DUO event last week and we were allowed to pick a pair of boots to take home, so look out for my other new winter boots popping up soon! I'm too greedy to be satisfied with just one pair though...

I can see me wearing those boots with some navy skinny jeans and the gorgeous mint coloured Ted Baker jumper. And to wrap up warm over everything this navy coat, also from Ted Baker will 100% be making its way into my wardrobe this season. I always think navy is so ridiculously chic and a coat is such a sensible investment - last year I didn't like any that were around and my coat from the year before did double time, so I can fully justify a new one. I'm not keen on the duster coats that are everywhere at the moment - or should I say they're not keen on me?! They just don't suit my shape at all so this lovely A-Line coat that nips in at the waist is a rare find!

For the beauty choices we have two things I've been after for a long time - the Babyliss Pro Perfect Curl has a pretty big price tag at £165 but I just really want it. I know there's the slightly cheaper Babyliss Perfect Curl but at £120, what's the difference for the sake of £45 really?! Plus I know I'd just keep wondering about the Pro version...

And lastly it's another one of those I don't need this but just really, really want it items... The Urban Decay Naked Basics 2. Between multiple neutral palettes - not limited to Naked 1 & 2 and Naked Basics 1, there's really no need for Naked Basics 2. But I just want it in my life! I know you guys will understand - you're my people after all!

Join the conversation!
