Lust List | September 2016

03:38


Can I just take a moment to express how FREAKING EXCITED I am that it's September? I feel like most people dislike this month as it means back to school/college/uni/work, as well as being almost an official notice that summer is over. However I'm an A/W kind of girl through and through - I struggle to dress for hot weather, finding way more comfort in the faux fur and glitter and knee high boots of the colder seasons. Autumn allows me to shed the over-worn crop top and skirt combo that I've been living in since June and begin to channel my inner Cher Horowitz again, not just wardrobe wise but also in regards to her extreme shopping habit. I've started to notice that many of my favourite brands have started to drop their new collections, giving me a perfect excuse to share my new season lust list with you all.

Though a skirt gal through and through, I've really been falling in love with mom/boyfriend style jeans this year, especially when they're as sassy and amazing as this Topshop pair. I lusted after a similar pair a few months ago but missed out buying them much to my regret but if at all possible, I love these even more - the lilac/silver/mint sequins are just pastel-mermaid perfection. Speaking of pieces I'm getting a second chance of buying, UNIF have just restocked their Apex skirt and I'm super happy about it. I really love how the checkerboard board type of print looks on clothing and I can already imagine a million ways to style this skirt. One of my favourite things about this time of year is the festive season and Motel have been my go-to for amazing party dresses for years now - how beautiful is their new rose Finn dress? I'll definitely be wearing this with a pink faux fur coat and patent black boots a la Preen. Now I know a lot of my readers will be heading back to school or university soon (sad face) so I thought I'd share one of the best backpacks I've seen in a long while with you. This beauty from Local Heroes is super practical for carrying all your essentials to and from class, however the transparent design and heart lock make it a bit more unique than your average Jansport or Kanken. While we're on the subject of practical pieces turned cute, I'm obsessed with this Lazy Oaf puffer jacket. I've seen it around for a while now but it always sells out super fast; I'm hoping I can get my hands on it soon as it's perfect for the chilly weather we get here at this time of year. Finally, you can't have a perfect Autumn/Winter wardrobe without a pair of fantastic boots and Public Desire are the masters of the game right now. Everyone and their mother has a pair of their patent Dior inspired shoes (pictured here in baby pink) though I also love their sky high platforms and velvet booties. What's more, they're all super reasonably priced at around 40 pounds - excuse me while I buy literally everything.

What pieces have you got your eye on for this coming season? Are you more into S/S or A/W like I am? I'd love to hear from you! x

  3. LOVE this list! I already have two pairs of mom jeans so I better not be too tempted to buy these fab sequin ones... Lazy Oaf have a pastel stripe puffer jacket too that I'm dying to get my hands on! A/W fashion is so much easier, but I'm not really ready to say goodbye to the warm summer weather :( and the shorter days are already a pain!

  4. I love that lazy oaf jacket! I have a friend called 'Skye' who owns it and it's super perfect as it fits her name. I think I'm into dressing for the summer more than the autumn/winter, but I do really like the jeans and jumper look. X

  5. Those boots are GORGEOUS! Also, that skirt is awesome (probably wouldn't pair the two together...) I love September and October when the weather gets so much more comfortable!

  6. All so colourful and totally you :)
    I really like the transparent bags and they do look cute with the flowers inside, however, I just worry about people being able to see all my stuff (too paranoid of me? :P )
    One thing on my lust list is this black backpack with a red crushed velvet flap which is big enough to carry my laptop and perfect for me to transport around for uni - practical and stylish

  10. OMG, this list is fabulous! Those jeans!! I too have been lusting over boyfriend and mom styled jeans but this with the GLITTER!! OMG. OMG. I freaking love it. Pretty much adore everything on this list actually. Love that skirt too. I don't usually like clothing styled from the 60's which it has that flair with the checkerboard pattern but I somehow seem to be unconsciously attracted to it lately. lol.. I've even had peeps tell me my outfits remind them of the Brigitte Bardot 60's era. ha!

  30. I'm staying in Singapore now and it's summer all year round. I love A/W fashion more tbh, and sometimes when I do layer up a bit, I just end up melting as soon as I get out. ^^;
