After over a week without the internet, I feel seriously deprived of online shopping!! Finally we have the internet now, so I have definitely been making up for lost time. When I say online ‘shopping’, I really mean online ‘browsing’. I do spend oceans of time just looking through what’s new on all my favourite stores websites, and after a week, there are so many new things that I want. I don’t think there will ever be a day when I don’t want absolutely everything I see.
Firstly, I was really excited to see that Topshop have finally got a Pink Wool Boyfriend coat stocked in Petite! Whilst I’m not entirely sure I’d dare to wear it myself, this is such a big trend this year, so I feel like it’s a good step forward that they’ve brought it out in Petite. I do really love it though…perhaps I could try it on and see what happens? Speaking of coats and keeping warm for Winter, I can’t tell you how much I would love a faux fur gilet, scarf or shawl right now! I absolutely the love the faux fur look at the moment, but it’s just weighing up which options I think would suit me best.This Boxy Faux Fur Gilet is the closest thing I’ve seen so far to what I want, it’s sitting in my basket know, but it’s really pricey…so I don’t think I’ll be clicking the ‘buy’ button just yet.
I’m always looking for pretty dresses and, being so close to Christmas now, everything has glitter on and is embellished and glamourous! The Miss Selfridge Petite section have a lovely selection of Petite dresses which would be perfect for the party season, I do love my sequins, and I think the Bead Body Dress especially would be so flattering. The fit and flare style really works for Petite’s so I definitely think I might keep a close eye on this…just in case I have a need for it soon.
The Gold Foil Velvet leggings from Topshop would be pretty good for the Christmas party season too I think; gold is such a festive colour, so perhaps these with a fitted black t-shirt or top would be a great night-out combination. They’re quite loud, but I definitely think you can go that bit further in terms of glamour at this time of year. I’m also developing a bit of an obsession with these leather-look pencil skirts; I haven’t yet bought one, but they seem to be everywhere and I think they’re really elegant. Camel really isn’t a colour I ever wear but I saw this Vinyl skirt on the Topshop website and thought it was pretty stand-out!
I also think the ALL MINE Metal Trim boots from Topshop are absolutely incredible. I love the colour and the heel and can really see myself in them! Only, as ever, they really are pretty expensive…and it’s not like I don’t have enough boots already…but I think these might have to go on my Christmas list. I feel like I have so many pairs of black boots, so it would be so nice to have a change and go for a colour like this. We shall see!
