Daisybutter - UK Style and Fashion Blog: wishlist, miss selfridge, haruki murakami, yesstyle, and other stories, chanel, AW13

So the time is nigh for an October wishlist. Following a few splurges last month, I'm actually on a sensible shopping plan for the month and we can take this post as a real wishlist. Santa, are you listening? (I'm not sorry for dropping that bomb on you guys, we're on a one-way track to Christmas from here.)

First up, I'm pretty much in love with the Check Borg Collar Coat (£79) by Miss Selfridge. I know I know, we've all been pretty taken by those Pygmy Puff-esque powder pink coats as of late, but this number has utterly stolen my heart and is so perfectly wearable. I can also see my wardrobe deepening into those warm creams, forest greens and soft taupes as the weather turns. The silk shirt (£65) and cropped jumper (£55) by And Other Stories look so dreamy - potentially a payday treat if I'm feeling cold enough, eh?

Accessories wise, I think I can safely throw these CHANEL Patent Calfskin Ankle Boots (£775) in the mix without any fear of an accidental purchase. They're so dreamy with just enough heel height and detailing, and, y'know, now that I think about it, they're kinda more affordable than my newest Mulberry addition. Now there's some food for thought… Enable me guys! (Don't.) I'm also still lusting after a Proenza Schouler number despite indulging in a Mulbs alternative. This Mini is absolutely perfect, grey leather looks timeless and new all at the same time.

Finally, Jessica alerted me to the fact that there's a new Murakami tome in the works! Winging its' way to English readers early next year, it's about time I prepared myself by reading another of his works that I've been meaning to sample for months. Anyone got any thoughts on 'The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle'?

What's on your October wishlist, material or non-material? Lemme know and I can ease my, er, wishlister's remorse*! x
* Wishlists in my world = imminent purchase.

  8. Thanks for the little mention Michelle! :) The Wind-up Bird Chronicles is one of my favourite Murakami books - it's so good! I'm so excited for his next book - although right now all I can think about is that green silk blouse... x

    1. Ah you're welcome love! I think I'll pick a copy up this weekend or early next week, I've just finished my current book and should probably balance out imminent Pokemon gaming with a read.
