I know I've been starting all of my recent posts like this, but it really feels like it has been FOREVER since my last Wednesday Wants post. Wasn't going to post today but I'm going shopping with my Mumma, brother and sister tomorrow, and I have quite a bit in mind that I want to buy! Haven't been on a shopping spree in absolutely ages!

Once again, Topshop somehow manages to win pride of place in my wishlist. In recent weeks, I had actually been disappointed by Topshop's offerings, wandering into my local store and seeing rails upon rails of quite unwearable pieces put me off, but today I allowed myself to look at their website and I found this tunic, knitted top and paper bag tapered trousers! True, this sleeveless tunic will undoubtedly do the rounds in the blogosphere once again, but I can see it styled in all sorts of ways.

I'm very tempted to try a pair of tapered trousers after seeing Ella wear a pair on her blog. I literally never wear trousers except for work, but there's something so understatedly chic about them, and again, they can be styled in all sorts of ways! (Perhaps even with that knitted drape top!) Also, Topshop now have a great Petite range of trousers, so for fellow Petites like myself - hello 5"1! - they're perfect to try. I'm probably going to try a pair on tomorrow in-store and shall report back via Twitter to you all!

Finally, I'm biting the bullet and blowing a good portion of my Christmas pay on some MAC goodies to bring in the New Year! I've already got my basket full to the brim - ahem, not quite! - and I'm definitely going to be picking up a lipstick in Hue, after everyone's recommendations to me about it. As part of my New Year's resolutions, I'm going to try and cut down on my make-up collection after this splurge, so lots of my used-once/never used products will be going straight into my blog sale!

Happy Wednesday lovely ladies, and apologies for how rambly these posts always seem to get! ^____^;

  4. Love your picks! I bought that topshop tunic the other day, it's even more gorgeous in real life, can't wait to wear it! Recommend that purchase!

    About the mac haul, i was so tempted to start a palette of eyeshadows, but i can't decide which ones i want, maybe when my loan comes through i'll treat myself!

    Hope your well :)

  11. Dani: It's so nice! I love that it opens up as well haha, I've been keeping an eye on the site for when it comes back in stock too!

    Laura: Eee did you?! V jealous, I'm worried I won't be able to find a pair in Topshop tomorrow, I can only imagine how chaotic the stores must be at the moment with all the sales. Thanks lovely, so excited to have a proper shop (:

    Heather-Louise: I like the fact that you can go fitted or baggy top-wise with tapered trousers, definitely a plus point for me because I can be so indecisive! I think I'd wear moccasins or brogues with them, but we shall have to see. Bleugh, it definitely is ): Topshop's not too bad for tops and tunics at the moment though!

    Stacey: Thanks sweet :D Aah did you?! I need it in my life, such a gorgeous colour palette! I'm just getting an empty quad palette, some eyeshadows, lipsticks and pigment (: We need a MAC counter in Southampton, I can't handle paying all these shipping costs anymore!

    Kate: I know, the colours of the tunic are so nice!

    Irene: Oooh on sale, you say?! I may, just MAY, have to brave that sale and see if I can get a pair, I've wanted the navy ones forever but couldn't bring myself to pay that much back then. However, now that I have my Christmas pay and gift money...! Oh indeed, Topshop's Petite section is getting really good at the moment (:

    Courtney: I know (: It looks a bit long but I have my fingers crossed for a Petite version. Thank you sweet, haven't had a MAC splurge since the Summer.. damn Uni :p

    Rose: Thank you! Eeep I just hope it isn't too long to be honest! Going to try it on and also keep my eye out for a Petite version as well (:

    Gem: Don't be silly Gem! <3 I'm going to try them on first, I don't feel like I can ever pull off wearing trousers, but these look so pretty what with the paperbag waist and all! Thank youuu <3

    Vicky: It's gorgeous isn't it?! And for £26 at Topshop, I can't resist :p

  15. MonsterManiac: I know right?! I'm hoping it's lightweight enough to be worn in the Summer too haha, I'm such a sucker for knitwear worn all year round (:

    Jade: (: Yesss! I saw it and was just like, "£26, Topshop, Need in my life!" haha! Aaand with a beautiful student discount on top of that, I'll get a nice new dress for a nice price!

    Mary: Thank you (:

  17. Topshop always has a lot of good stuff! It's a pity their prices are crazy. I've been dying for a pair of flattering tapered trousers too, I've tried on a few but hm they don't seem to be the one I'm looking for! Loving what you have on your Wednesday Wants - you seem to be moving towards brown hues :D

  19. ah thanks for the little mention my doll! i havent stopped wearing those trousers since i got them, so comfy and easy to style up, i love nautical colours with beige colours too. that golden snitch necklace is lovely xxx

  20. Cintia: I'm falling more and more in love with it by the minute! Fingers crossed it's as good "in real life"! Thank you lovely, that means a lot :D

    Daisy: Mm I'd lost my penchant for Topshop over December, but it looks like things are picking up now! Their prices aren't so bad at the moment, but they're going to be increased in the New Year, so I might as well make the most of it now :p Thank you! Oh I know, I'm quite influenced by the 60s at the moment, hence the neutral tones!

    Aysh: Thank you sweet, my Christmas was really nice! How was yours? Haha PP collars are still right on trend, a nice subtle nod to Miu Miu and a sweeter version of Chloe's SS collection! Thank you for the link too, I'm not a fan of velvet, but on a collar, it might be okay! Too bad it's out of my size too ):

    Ella: You're very welcome! I saw your post and trawled the Innernetz for a similar pair that I could possibly purchase! Oh yesss, I can imagine navy and white tones looking gorgeous with tapered trousers in the Spring :O

  24. I've fallen for Topshop. I love everything in there, like there knitwear like this:

    http://www.topshop.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?beginIndex=0&viewAllFlag=&catalogId=33057&storeId=12556&productId=2076672&langId=-1&sort_field=Relevance&categoryId=208525&parent_categoryId=203984&sort_field=Relevance&pageSize=200 <--TAKE A LOOK.

    Yay, they have a petite range. Comes in handy for short asses like mwah. I like being in short =)

  25. Charlotte: Thanks lovely (:

    Kim: Aah did you? I'm definitely going to pick it up if I see it in-store, the rust colour is so gorgeous, and will look good all styled up I think! Ooh I know, just seen her blog post on it, it looks so much nicer in real-life and not on the Topshop website. Great minds think alike indeed aha ;)

    Tesh: Oh I love Topshop's knitwear, it's so cosy and soft haha! I actually saw that cardigan before I came home for Christmas, in my search for a berry coloured cardy, but even the smallest size was way too oversized, which I didn't like!

  29. Georgie: It's so sweet isn't it! I love contrast between polka dot and the plain collar (: Thank you! I'm a tiny bit nifty on the ol' Photoshop haha, I always look forward to getting a Wednesday post prepared!

    SJ: Eeep I'm a little excited to buy it tomorrow :D

    Alyssa: Oh gosh, I can't imagine not having a Topshop near me! The fit of Topshop clothing is usually quite accurate against other clothing brands if that's any help, I hardly ever have issues with their sizing (:

    Henar: I know, they're loving aren't they?! Such a nice colour too!

  30. Aww no never mind, lets hope they get some more in! I confess I actually quite like the velvet, lol! But your right, any more & it would be too much! And I had an absolutely lovely Xmas my darlin, thanks for asking :)A blur of days filled with too much food plus Only Fool & Horses and Fawlty Towers re-runs in my household ;)

    Lucy: Ooh do you? I bought the tunic and Hue today :D
