Today’s Wednesday Wishlist is all about fabulous online retailer, Missguided!

Missguided has been on my radar for some time now, but it wasn’t until earlier this month that I actually took the time to browse the online retailer, and let me tell you – I instantly fell in love with some of their amazing clothes!

From L-R: 1. Enrita Leather Trim Lace Blouse, 2. Ingrid Tassel Ribbed Bodycon Skirt, 3. Sunisa Crocodile Skin Envelope Tote Bag, 4. Velda Mirrored Teashade Sunglasses, 5. USA Frayed Denim Shorts & 6. Studded Collar Skater Dress.

1. Enrita Leather Trim Lace Blouse, £22.99 – Lace is big this season, with designers such as Miu Miu’s stunning red and gold dress, Luisa Beccaria’s blue midi and Valentino’s crisp white gowns turning heads at fashion week. So when I saw this edgy blouse on the Missguided website, I had to include it in my Wednesday Wishlist! As you can see, I have ‘tucked’ it in the tassel Bodycon skirt below; this outfit would be perfect for a night out with the girls, or for a special occasion. If I wanted a more casual look, I could also team this blouse with these Topshop dip-dye denim shorts and black wedge sandals from River Island.

2. Ingrid Tassel Ribbed Bodycon Skirt, £22.99 – The ‘Great Gatsby’ look took the catwalks of Marchesa, Ralph Lauren and Etro by storm. So I was eagerly anticipating what the high street were going to come up with in terms of designing their own versions of this 20s trend – and it’s safe to say that Missguided definitely did not disappoint with this sultry Bodycon tassel skirt! Dip hem skirts seem to be all the ‘rage’ at the moment, so it’s refreshing to have a different type of skirt available for those who want to embrace their ‘inner Gatsby girl’. At £22.99 this skirt is practically a steal, so if you fancy channelling the great 1920s, grab yours now!

3. Sunisa Crocodile Skin Envelope Tote Bag, £28.99 – As with previous wishlists, pastel colours are a trend which I have been coveting ever since they graced the runway of House of Holland, Jaeger and J W Anderson. This pastel pink crocodile skin envelope bag is perfect for someone like me, who prefers to add minimal pastel accessories to her outfits, rather than look like an ice cream sorbet (hey it’s a good look, but it’s not for me!)  This bag will also finish off the outfit in my wishlist nicely!

n …4. Velda Mirrored Teashade Sunglasses, £4.99 – These sunglasses are so cute and funky! They remind me of the late John Lennon, and what better way to channel this iconic musician than by bagging these mirrored Teashade sunnies?!  Now all we need is the summer sun…

5. USA Frayed Denim Shorts, £24.99 – The ‘Americana’ trend is a big hit this Spring/Summer with high street stores such as Republic, Topshop and Miss Selfridge including this famous flag in their collections.  These shorts are perfect for festival season, and will look great on the beach! Just take inspiration from Marina Diamandis, from Marina and The Diamonds, who rocks her American flag shorts!

6. Studded Collar Skater Dress, £27.99 – And finally, this studded collar skater dress is perfect for both the daytime and a night out on the town! This dress reminds me of Balmain, who is one of my favourite designers – I love their S/S 12 collection! So this is my high street take on the Parisian fashion house.  I would toughen this look up even more by wearing this grey River Island PU jacket and Missguided’s ‘killer’ platforms!

There’s my wishlist! Do you like Missguided? What are your favourite items at the moment?

What words instantly come into your mind when you hear ‘Mary-Kate Olsen’? Twin? Actress? Fashion Designer? Style icon? Yep, that’s right, style icon.

The younger Olsen twin has been in the public spotlight for most of her life. It is not only her ability to act which puts her in the pages of Vogue Magazine, it’s her style. And that’s why this week’s Steal Her Style feature is dedicated to achieving Miss Olsen’s eccentric but simplistic look-for-less!

Think lively prints, basic colours and tons of accessorising and you’ve got Miss Olsen’s style to a tee.  So to help you guys get some inspiration, or maybe even a head start in the trend department, I have chosen to steal what Mary-Kate wore to The Art of Elysium Bright Lights event back in April, 2010. Now all you need are those beachy ‘just got out of bed’ locks!

Here is what Mary-Kate wore on the left-hand side of the image, and what I found similar on the right-hand side:

Leopard Faux Fur Coat, £50, Miss Selfridge – Despite the fact that the Spring/Summer 2012 season is just around the corner, there is still no excuse to not indulge in a timeless piece such as the faux fur coat! Fur coats (real or not) were big on the Autumn/Winter catwalks of  Topshop Unique, Donna Karan and Giles. And they are perfect for those who are still suffering from those winter blues!

Structured Skater Dress, £46, Topshop – Skater dresses were featured in the Spring/Summer 2012 collections of British-born designer; Cushnie et Ochs, as well as London-based twins Felder Felder’s. However, if you can’t afford to splash out on this huge 2012 trend, then don’t worry! There are a number of structured skater dresses out there on the high street, from Republic’s ruby red number to River Island’s luscious leopard print dress – you are spoiled for choice!

Black Slim Tie, £8, Topman – A Mary-Kate Olsen outfit wouldn’t be complete without including a whole hoard of sporting accessories! This Topman tie will add a masculine edge to your outfit. Want to get more use out of your new tie? Then look to Ralph Lauren and Jason Wu for S/S 2012 inspiration.

Colour Mesh Bangle Pack, £12.50, Topshop – These cute coloured bangles from Topshop will complement the tie perfectly, as well as adding a ‘bohemian’ feel to the look. Orange tones were huge in the collections of Narciso Rodriguez, Michael Kors and Hermes. So why wait now? Invest in one of the hottest seasonal colours, and you’ll be sizzling your way through spring and summer!

Metal Ridged Ring, £6.50, Topshop – Like Mary-Kate, I love my rings! So I picked a few which matched her style, and a few which I liked too! This metal edge ring is perfect for adding a touch of masculinity to the outfit, along with the Topman tie.

Large Round Turquoise Ring, £28, Urban Outfitters – Most of Mary-Kate’s rings have turquoise stones infused in them, and what better ring to achieve MK’s look-for-less than this Urban Outfitter’s version?  It may be a bit on the pricey side, but for seasonal value, it ticks all the right trend boxes. Take inspiration from Marc Jacobs and Chanel, if you want to add more of this underwater colour into your wardrobes!

Made Brass Shikong’o Ring, £25, ASOS – This may be a small brass ring, but good things come in small packages – and this one doesn’t differ! This cute piece of jewellery can be incorporated into any look, and in the long term, will be a good investment in terms of cost-per-wear.  

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Clutch, £22.50, Accessorize – This left-handed Olsen twin loves her kooky accessories, and nothing fits the bill better than this amazing Accessorize star clutch! It’s currently in the sale, so bag yours (see what I did there?), while you can!

Miso Gold Zip Boots, £34.99, Republic – Nothing beats a nice pair of shoe boots to stride in style! I have these beautiful babies, and I must say, they go with any outfit, and they make lengthen your legs perfectly!

There you go! Look out for another Steal Her Style feature in the near future! But for now, do you like this Olsen twin’s style? Or do you prefer her older sister Ashley’s?
