Tis the season for consumerism, but when your budget is a bitch and refuses to allow you buy the things that you deserve, then one has to resort to lamenting this fact in a blog post. So here.We.Are.
In my lementing, I have conjured up this list of fine items that I would love to splurge on if the money fairy decided to appear (my door is always open to her) I am feeling classically British this winter, which may reflect a lot on this “dream” list. I mean, if you’re going to invest the money, do it in timeless things……Or ultra-modern digital accessories. What can I say? I’m a very nuanced person. It’s a curse.
The Phone Case
By the Brand Chaos, made up of a super styling team Kathrine Lyall and Charlotte Stockdale. I’ve had the pleasure to meet these ladies very briefly in a former role and they are just as fabulous as you’d imagine and full of amazing anecdotes. I have featured this case in its original design before on my Instagram, but my heart has officially been taken by the newest member of the “ugh!” family. Metallic pink and black. I need this in my life. I also need a phone that one of these cases would actually fit in after dropping my latest upgrade down the sink but that is a different story.
Thanks to the magic of social media, I am now obsessed with Shrimps. Especially, their sexy ass coats. This is my favourite this season but I am also on a quest to obtain one of their stunning faux fur designs too. I recently queued in line for ages to get excess to their sample sale but alas, the one I was looking for avoided me….but it will be mine. Oh yes, I will own these coats dammit.
I couldn’t choose just one dress, and also, I am dreaming! So, in my pretend world I change twice a day like an old-fashioned Victorian lady. Like an old Victorian lady who wears Alice Olivia Ruffles in the day and Ulla Johson Ruffles by night. An old Victorian lady who knows what she wants, which after finishing this post is, a nap.
Beholdeth these Valentino ankle boots. Everything about these boots is fabulous. They come in various colours as well, which is unfair when you think about it, as now you have to have them all.
The Lady Mary Jacket
I have been in love with this style forever. I am one of those people who secretly sits and hopes that tophats will unexpectedly make a mainstream comeback and ruffled skirts will engulf the streets. Until then, I will have to settle for riding jackets and all the tweed the UK can throw at me.
Here endeth the journey, for now. Ah, that was a lovely journey, wasn’t it? After scrolling the internet for a few of my favourite pieces, I’m really interested to know what everyone’s favourite themes or key items are for Winter. I appear to be a lot more old school than I realised! Before I go, BIG thanks for the social love on my last post, it made me feel all lovely inside <3 <3

Until next time, my darlings!

I actually made myself a cover for my journal back in the 90’s which looked so much like that phone case! I wonder if an old mate had gone into design lol I love those black panther boots – raagh!
Sounds fabulous, do you have a picture? I love when fashions look to the past x
I’ll have a look for it. I did one in yellow faux fur as well I think. I don’t think I progressed much from the 90’s tbh 😄
