This year I have pretty much avoided the January sales and so haven't really taken the time to have a wander around the shops and see what's actually out there. I don't like how crowded everywhere is this time of year and can't bare seeing adults scraping over the last dress in their size. This has given me the time to sit down and explore some of the online stores I'd been meaning to check out over the last few months. I've found so many more shops where I can't wait to spend my money, although I think AsianiCandy has definitely been one of my favourites that I've discovered recently.
Here's a little wishlist I've put together after many hours of high street avoidance browsing....
AsianiCandy tugged on my heart strings as soon as I entered their website, they're dresses are feminine and stylish with a good mix of classic and current looks - and of course they're all gorgeous! This neck tie dress is, for me, perfect. The colour, the shape, the vintage feel - I love it all. It probably doesn't help that I've just finished watching The Man Who Cried, but the dress can't help but make me think of 1940's Paris complete with small cafes, glistening theatres and of course moonlight walks by the Eiffel Tower.
After seeing Dot's latest outfit post I am now even more obsessed with hats! I wish I wore them more often and had a bigger collection. Other people's outfits always look so amazing when they're finished with a piece of head candy but I've never taken the leap to hat wearing myself. Maybe something to try more this year?
The finishing touches to this outfit, a simple pair of black ankle boots - which I would love to pair with a pair of lace ankle socks (if you know where I can find some in adult sizes I'll love you forever!) - and yet another Zatchel bag from my ever growing wishlist! I really like the simplicity of this outfit. The dress does not need dressing up with loads of accesories but the metallic satchel adds a extra bit of colour that compliments the dresses fabric without drawing away from it at all.
Finally, this week's wishlist features this amazing five year Q&A journal. I love the idea of answering interesting, thought provoking and quirky questions every day for five years. It's a great way to see how you perceptions and attitudes change over time without having to go through page after page of whining teenage angst - or maybe that was just me!
What are you wishing for this week?
