This week’s Wednesday Wishlist is a Miss Selfridge ‘must-have’ special!

From L-R: 1. Silver Lame Dipback Tee, 2. Black Floral Denim Hotpants, 3. Buddha Ring, 4.Petites Ombre Shirt, 5. Rhinestone Chain Loop & 6. Stud Front Dipback Tee.

1. Silver Lame Dipback Tee, £25 – Metallics were a key Autumn/Winter 2011 trend, but they are still clinging on for ‘trend-glory’ this season with Herve Leger, Givenchy and Sportsmax showcasing these futuristic colours in their S/S 2012 collections. I would pair this top with my Republic black leggings and my silver studded shoes.

2. Black Floral Denim Hotpants, £28 – Florals are always a trend which always crops up at this time of year, with designers such as Matthew Williamson, Mary Katrantzou and dynamic duo Proenza Schouler turning heads with their flower power pieces at their respective fashion weeks.  These shorts would look perfect with a simple white Topshop tee and Office’s pink underground creepers. For the current ‘clash’ look, which is popular with celebrities such as Diane Kruger and Olivia Palermo, team your florals with stripes or leopard print. For this trend, anything goes!

3. Buddha Ring, £6.50 – I was drawn to this Buddha ring because believe it or not, this religion is part of my heritage (I’m half Thai). I used to own quite a few religious Thai trinkets and necklaces, but over the years I have somehow lost them! This Buddha ring reminds me of ‘the other part of my life’, and it’s also gold, which is my favourite jewellery colour – so I HAD to include it in my Wednesday Wishlist! There were only a few left in stock the last time I checked so if you want to snap this up, then you have gotta be quick!

4. Petites Ombre Shirt, £32 – Ombre is BACK, and it is another trend which is set to rock in the Spring/Summer 2012 fashion stakes, with top fashion bloggers ‘ombre-ing’ their hair such as Lily Melrose and Olivia Purvis, to Charlotte Ronson and Louis Vuitton, who have sent dip-dyed pieces down the runway.  This would look great with bloggers favourite American Apparel disco pants and black high top flatforms.

5. Rhinestone Chain Loop, £25 – Collar necklaces were big on the catwalks of Sass & Bide and Oscar De Le Renta. Despite this necklace being HUGE and probably weighing a tonne, it’s still amazing in my eyes!  It would look great under the collar of a crisp white shirt.

6. Stud Front Dipback Tee, £35 – I am in love with studded clothing and accessories at the moment! Let’s just say it’s my ‘inner-Balmain’ which is luring me to this trend. This tee can be dressed up for the day time – with some Boohoo black wet look leggings and Chelsea boots, or it can be dressed up to the nines with some luscious leather shorts from Missguided and River Island black and white heels, for a night out with the girls!

What are your thoughts on Miss Selfridge? Are there any items which take your fancy?

This week I decided to raid the Urban Outfitters website. As per-usual, they never fail to deliver when it comes to producing exotic, sought-after items.

As you can see, I love the UO headgear! With the majority of famous festivals occurring this week, I thought the ‘festival’ theme would work perfectly with the three outfits I have created.

Ps.
Apologies for the sudden lack of posts! I have been very busy these past couple of weeks due to having a massive clear-out. However, I have been brewing more blog ideas, so look forward to those in the next coming weeks!

Here are the items from clockwise-round:

Outfit 1
Straw Hat with Grosgrain Band, £20 – I’m not usually a hat person, apart from the odd winter beanie hat and ‘cowboy’ hat for a fancy dress night out. However, with festival season here, what item is better for protecting your hair from the sun than a nice, simple, straw hat like this one?

BDG Breezy Boyfriend Shirt, £38 – I love, love, love this shirt! I’m usually a check shirt sort-of-girl but I couldn’t let this stripy boyfriend shirt pass me by. This, tucked into the gorgeous denim shorts below makes for a style-savvy festival outfit.

Bitching & Junkfood Feather Pocket Shorts, £70 – Okay, so £70 is a bit steep for denim shorts. However, they’re no ordinary denim shorts. They’re denim shorts WITH feathers on the pockets. This will definitely make you stand out from the crowd at your local music gathering!

Hunter Tall Original Boot, £40 Kate Moss is one notable fashionista who made these boots catch the spotlight when she went to Glastonbury Festival all those years ago. Other celebs followed suit, and now everyone who can afford these babies now owns a pair. Originally £69, these wellingtons have now been reduced to a more reasonable price of £40. Jackpot!

Outfit 2
Bitching & Junkfood Rose Crochet Headdress, £115 – This Bitching & Junkfood headdress may be expensive, but feather headdresses are the future according to Bitching & Junkfood designers; Marion and Kath. This headdress would be perfect for any festival you go to, plus it makes you stand out from the crowd. Headdresses are beginning to get so popular even Primark has a £2 version of a feather headdress!

Kimchi & Blue Daisy Playsuit, £55 – LWDs (Little White Dresses) took the Spring/Summer 2011 catwalks by storm with designers such as Gucci and Givenchy creating simple and sophisticated white dresses which can either be dressed up for night time or dressed down. Seeing as I like to be a bit different, I decided to settle on this LWP (Little White Playsuit) which will probably get muddy at festivals, but I am sure as hell will look good!

Stag Bunny & Owl Rings, £14 – As you all know, I love my jewellery at the moment, and whilst I like to keep this outfit simple, I think a few rings will complete the outfit. These cute rings, which come in a pack of three (hence the price), stacked on one finger will show festi-goers that I mean business in the fashion stakes!

Tan Bead Cuff Sandal, £18 – I instantly fell in love with these sandals as soon as I saw them on the UO website. They were originally £38, so for £18, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to incorporate these into my second outfit.

Outfit 3
Floppy Bow Hat, £22 – This web exclusive is just up my hat street! It’s different and has a sort of ‘seventies’ feel which is what I am basing this third outfit on.

Plastic Wing Frame Sunglasses, £16 – Ever since I saw Katy Perry sport these sunnies, I couldn’t help but want my own pair! These, teamed with the floppy bow hat not only protect you from the sun, but will make you the envy of your friends’ á la Katy Perry style.

Boy London Leave the Boy Alone Tee, £35 – Simple logo tees are the base for a stylish and simple outfit. This, tucked into the polka dot wide legged trousers below, will modernise this ‘seventies’ outfit without making you look like a Desperate Housewife in the process.

Pins & Needles Polka Dot Wide Legged Trousers, £60 – These wide legged trousers are the essence of this ‘seventies’ outfit. The polka dot pattern makes me feel all summery, and this teamed with the nude lace up peep toe shoes is perfect for a special summer occasion.

Deena & Ozzy Nude Lace up Peep Toe Shoes, £50– Originally £95, now reduced to £50, is the final item which completes this outfit. I would have gone for flats if I wasn’t a shorty. These shoe boots can be dressed up for a night out in the town or can be dressed down such as this outfit for a nice summer pub lunch.

There you have it! This week’s Urban Outfitters wishlist has now been complete. Look forward to next week’s wishlist which includes three outfits I have created from diverse store; Republic.
