Weekly Wishlist #1

March 27, 2011

I have been wanting to make theme posts on a set day for a while and I figured what better way to start than with a "weekly wishlist". I have seen lots of other bloggers do the same thing so I don't know who I owe credit to, but I always have at least 10 things that i'm lusting after and making a post at the end of every week seems like a fun way to share them with everyone.

weekly wishlist #1
Ditsy Strappy Back Playsuit - £40White Photo Love Crop Top - £18Vintage Rose Paperbag Shorts - £32KIKI Peach Canvas Bow Ballet - £16Peach Big Heart Ring - £6.50Daisy Fabric Headband - £5

Everything I want this week is from Miss Selfridge. I tend to get bored of their clothes during autumn/winter but once spring rolls around i'm back to loving them. Although they're owned by the same company who operate Topshop, Dorothy Perkins, Evans, etc. I feel like Miss Selfridge clothes don't get enough love both in the blogging world and in real life. Although I shop in Topshop more often (just because there's one an hour away, the nearest Miss Selfridge store is almost two hours) I prefer clothes from Miss Selfridge as they're more "me". I think of Miss Selfridge as Topshop's girly sister.

The playsuit caught my eye instantly. As you all know, i'm a sucker for a nice floral print and Miss Selfridge always impress with their choice of ditsy floral prints every Spring. I love that its a playsuit rather than a dress, perfect for riding your bicycle on warm summer days or those times when you just want to pretend you're five again (I mean that in a good way!) The cropped top is not something I would usually pick out in a store as cropped tops generally look best on girls who don't have bellies However it reminds me of a top I had for one of my barbies when I was a child and the print is adorable - I can't resist daisies! Shorts aren't something I love but I hope to start wearing them more. There are days when I want to wear pants/trousers but just can't bring myself to do so, maybe adding some pretty new shorts to my closet will be a stepping stone.. or just a good excuse to go shopping. I probably don't need an explanation as to why I love those flat shoes, they are just very "me"..bows, pink and a lovely floral print..need I say more? As soon as I seen them I fell in love but sadly my size is sold out online, i'll be lurking eBay in the coming weeks for sure! I usually prefer fancy gold rings rather than the plastic kind but the heart ring would be a fun piece for summer, as would the pretty daisy headband. Have I mentioned how much I love daisies? They're my favorite flower!

What has caught your eye in stores recently?

  3. Those flats are the cutest things ever, and I love the shorts! Infact I love everything on your wishlist :) I think we have quite a similar taste!
    I'm lusting over a jumpsuit in h&m at the moment - I bought one from there last weekend;I never thought I'd get one as I'm short so didn't think they would suit me but I was wrong! There's a very pretty floral one that I'm lusting after now...pay day friday...

  4. I love the playsuit and the shorts. I have been wanting a pair of paper bag shorts for a while now. They have a nice pair in H&M that are only £14.99, which I might need to invest in :) although i adore the colour of these! xx

  22. Lovelove the peach ring and ditsy print playsuit! Eeep, I can totally see where my Easter pay will be going ;) I feel that Miss Selfridge is a bit hit-and-miss overall, they go through phases where everything is gorgeous (like now!) and others where their pieces err on trashy? Lovelove everything you've picked out though, I need the ring, playsuit and shorts in my life (: xxx
