(1, 2, 3, 4, 5.)

Firstly, a quick apology for missing Wednesday Wants last week! I was on my mini blogging break, and couldn't even think about what I'd ideally spend my money on if I had any. The same pretty much goes for this week too, I think I really need a job if I want to be able to spend money as I please, but with Uni and wanting to keep weekends open in case I have to go home, it just won't be happening at the moment. If I was being completely honest, all I would put on my Wednesday Wants is a bottle of fairy dust!

I saw this adorable lace blouse on the Topshop Facebook page on Monday, and have fallen head over heels in lust with it. I really like that high street brands have tapped into the world of social media; seeing this in my news feed was the only way I would have seen this, as I've been banning myself from browsing online stores! I'm not sure about the fact that the blouse is cropped though, I can't see that being too flattering on me. I also really adore this shorts, they'd look so cute peeking out from under an oversize, slightly sheer jersey top! I really don't know why they're described as leopard print though?!

Yes Style is a brand/store that I have bought from and loved for many years. They specialise in Asian sourced clothing, which is typically a more cutesy, girly style, and is what I'd buy if I was in Hong Kong. I think it's such a good idea, making Hong Kong, Korean and Japanese fashion accessible all over the world! The range of dresses disappointed me today, but I love these contrast tab sleeved tunics for the Spring.

Finally, I'm a little in love with this ring collection necklace from Accessorize. I tried it on when I saw it in-store and it sits quite strangely, but to be quite honest, I'd be buying it just for the 10+ rings strung on it! Stackable rings are really on-trend at the moment, and this would be a great way to buy lots of rings and wear them for a different purpose. In fact, Accessorize's latest 'Precious Pendants' collection is really sweet and dainty, I've found myself coveting at least five necklaces on there! What are you wishing for this Wednesday?

  1. Gorgeous picks for your Wednesday Wants! That necklace looks really beautiful, I'll have to have a look at it next time I'm in Accessorize.
    Also, that Topshop blouse is really elegant - it looks like it would be really flattering.

  3. I always really love your Wednesday Wants, I like the Peter Pan blouse too but I don't really understand them? I'm sure they'd look lovely on the right person though - that person however, definitely isn't me! Ha.
    Absolutely adore the ring collection too, I keep thinking I should probably buy more accessories because I keep seeing so many amazing things in the shops at the moment that I just love! Ahh, the woes of being a beauty/fashion obsessed student, ey!?
    Thanks for the lovely comments you've left on my blog recently too - means a lot! :) x

  5. those scalloped shorts are so cute! i don't see how they're leopard print though? i love that highstreet shops are getting twitters and facebooks now.. i've had to hide the topshop one from my facebook newsfeed though because i keep on getting tempted to buy everything they posted! :(

  6. Michelle: Thank you! Also, thank you for following the blog Michelle, I really love yours so it was such a nice surprise to see your face pop up on my sidebar (: I'm so tempted by the necklace but I have to resist for now! xx

    Courtney: Eee I know (: Aaah blimmin' Topshop... I really want them to run another 20% student discount event so I get them on the cheap! Although if I still want these by my Easter break, I'm totally going to sew some myself! xx

    Lucy: N'awh thanks Lucy! Haha I don't understand why its cropped :/ I don't think a cropped length is flattering on anyone but the skinniest of girls! I might take a leaf out of your book and accessorise more over buying new clothes ;) You're welcome sweet, really been enjoying seeing your outfit posts! xxx

    Rachel: Thank you! x

    Charlene: Me either! Mind you, a real leopard print on scalloped shorts might just kill my love for Chloe detailing forever aha, I'm not a fan of animal print on the whole! Lol I haven't hidden mine yet, their daily picks posts are absolutely killing me ): xxx

  9. I couldn't understand why the shorts were advertised as leopard print either :/ They're really pretty though - along with the lace blouse! You'd definitely suit them. I'm completely skint too :/

  12. Sophie: I literally need those shorts in my wardrobe ): They even have an elasticated waist for maximum comfort/pig-out abilities! Haha, I'd like to think of it as a mid-week indulge in preparation for the weekend! xxx

    Sarah: Such a cute piece, it reminds me of the jewellery/trinkets that you see in little market stalls by the beach when on holiday aha! x

    Bee: They're kind of a purpley-toned zebra print but not quite! Wouldn't market them as leopard print by any stretch of the imagination. Thanks sweet (: Oh I know, its slightly scary and depressing at the same time. And I don't really have the time to commit to a job at the moment ):

    Heather-Louise: I know right?! I wouldn't want to get them dirty! Mm me either, it's the "cropped" aspect that I'm struggling with! xxx

    JoJo: They're so cute aren't they?! Casual and smart at the same time (: Oh thank you lovely! xx

  16. Katie: I was thinking the same! Going home to my sewing machine next weekend so I'm going to try and draft up some patterns, £55 is an ouch at the moment! Let me know if you do DIY a pair, I'd love to see! x

    Ashleigh: Haha that is the idea ;) I shall live vicariously through you girls! Thanks lovely. xx

  19. Those shorts are really cute! Will have to check Accessorize more often! They do usually have really nice pieces x

    ReplyDelete
  20. Danni: Haha same! I deliberately removed such websites from my favourites bar, yet they pop up everywhere at me! I found the shorts while working on a styling assignment + have come to the conclusion that I just need a pair like them! xxx

    Lucy: Lol! I love scallop edges, they were so nice in the Chloe collection a year or two ago and I've got the cut-outs in my styling notebook 'n everything. Need. Have you tried Converse Light? I have a pair and I love them (: You're welcome Lucy! Tried to find an email address to let you know but I couldn't see one. xxx

    Hannah: Accessorize is quite daunting to look through I find! It's quite cluttered, but then I find myself wanting absolutely everything once I do have a browse! x
