From Left to Right: 1. Miss Selfridge Geo Devore Bra Top, 2. eBay Black Suede Studded Flatforms, 3. Topshop Floral Print Maxi Dress, 4. Missguided Tanisa Leather Hotpants, 5. & 6. River Island Light Orange/Pink Diamante Flower Bikini Top & Bottoms.

1. Geo Devore Bra Top, £20, Miss Selfridge – Who knew that wearing what could be deemed as ‘lingerie’ out in public would be socially acceptable in 2012?  Well according to Viktor & Rolf, Prada and Dolce & Gabbana, the elusive ‘bra top’ is just that. Bra tops are perfect for your summer holiday, and with this gorgeous Geo velvet number, you’ll in no doubt be top of the trend class! What’s more, velvet is HUGE for Autumn/Winter 2012 – take inspiration from Peter Pilotto and Unique.

2. Black suede studded flatforms, £11.99 without postage, eBay – Flatforms are massive in the bloggerverse – just look at top fashion blogger Lily Melrose for instance! And with Topshop Unique, Meadham Kirchhoff and Christopher Kane featuring these popular shoes in their Spring/Summer 2012 collections, there is no doubt the ‘the flatform’ is this Summer’s shoe of choice! These black suede studded shoes are perfect for those of you who hate high heels! Plus, they go with EVERYTHING!

3. Floral Print Maxi Dress, £59, Topshop –  A Wednesday Wishlist is never complete with some sort of floral garment included! And this week’s certainly doesn’t disappoint! This Topshop dress maybe be a tad on the expensive side but with florals set to be HUGE this Autumn/Winter – with the likes of Jonathan Saunders and Erdem going darkside, what’s not to love?

4. Tanisa Leather Hotpants, £22.99, Missguided – Don’t fret, the dominatrix look is not back in fashion just yet, but it’s safe to say that leather was everywhere during Fashion Week – just look at online etailer Missguided’s take on this sultry fabric! Team these amazing leather hotpants with a crisp white collar-tipped Zara shirt, Topshop grey ankle socks and Republic’s gold studded and buckle boots, for an Alexa Chung style steal. Or just take some S/S inspiration from Valentino, Kanye West and Balmain by including minimalistic furs and accessories for the hot sizzling summer evening. If you’re more of an A/W girl, make like Acne and Unique and dress down your leather with a grey colour palette.

5. & 6. Light Orange/Pink Diamante Flower Bikini Top & Bottoms, £18 & £10, River Island – Ice cream shades were all the rage this Spring/Summer with Alexander McQueen, Chloe and Chanel including these delicious flavours into their eclectic designs! This pastel bikini River Island bikini is perfect if you want to emulate this Summer’s hottest trend! Team with these cute cat eye sunglasses from ASOS, and you’ll be oozing with style before you know it!

This Wednesday’s Wishlist is all about my work wants!

From L-R: 1. Soul Cal Deluxe Trilby Hat, 2. Miso Spike & Bead Necklace, 3. Miso Heart Top, 4. Miso Horn Ring, 5. Miso Scallop Hem Highwaisted Shorts & 6. Miso Leopard Print Dip Hem Maxi Dress.

1. Soul Cal Deluxe Trilby Hat, £12 – As most of you know, I work at Republic, and at the moment I am in LOVE with what they have to offer for this Spring and Summer!  I have always wanted a trilby, but due to my genetics (I have such a small head); I have never found a hat which fits me properly. This trilby would be perfect for the upcoming festival season –  think Sienna Miller and Jameela Jamil. Now all I need is my festival ticket and I’m ready to go!

2. Miso Spike & Bead Necklace, £12 – I absolutely adore this collar necklace! It’s quite tribal-esque and as you all know tribal prints are in – just take inspiration from Burberry Prorsum, Emilio Pucci and Gucci, who rocked their prospective fashion weeks. This necklace would look great with the leopard print dip hem maxi dress, Miss Selfridge leather jacket and Deena and Ozzy platforms.

3. Miso Heart Top, £22 – I’m not really a pink fan, but as soon as I saw this pastel pink laser cut crop top I HAD to include it in my Wednesday Wishlist! This top hits two trends with one stone, with pretty pastels being ‘all the rage’ this season with Alexander McQueen, Meadham Kirchhoff and Chanel including these shades in their collections, and laser cut pieces storming the catwalks of Valentino and Louis Vuitton. This top will look great tucked into a Republic black dip hem maxi skirt, with a River Island light minty green blazer and ASOS white creepers.  Invest in yours now!

4. Miso Horn Ring, £8 – Many regular readers will know that I LOVE my rings! So it comes to no surprise that as soon as I saw this one, my mind instantly screamed: ‘Want, want, want!’ The horn is quite big, which is different to all the dainty rings you currently see in the high street. At £8 it is expensive for what it’s worth, but if you’re looking for something a bit different, then this is for you! Thank god for my staff discount!

5. Miso Scallop Hem Highwaisted Shorts, £28 – I have been looking for a decent pair of high waisted denim shorts for ages now, and these scallop hem shorts seem to ‘fit the bill’. Scallop hems were massive last season, and it seems that they are still on trend for this Spring/Summer too, with New York native Jill Stuart incorporating this into her designs.  I just need to add my Miso pastel pink top and my studded slippers, and I’m ready for work!

6. Miso Leopard Print Dip Hem Maxi Dress, £28 – Finally, I am currently coveting this gorgeous leopard print dip hem maxi!  I am in love with dip hem dresses and skirts at the moment, and this would make a perfect addition to my wardrobe! Animal print is another Spring/Summer trend which I love – take inspiration for outfits from Michael Kors and House of Holland, who both show that you don’t have to limit yourself when wearing this print. I would clash this dress with a floral blazer and toughen it up with these nude lace Boohoo boots.

Those are my work wants! What pieces are currently on your work’s wishlist?
