Winter Wish List

I must admit I rarely dabble in the world of fashion blogging, but as I'm doing a bit of 2am internet browsing, I thought I should try out a new idea... simultaneously blogging and browsing. Perhaps in an attempt to stop me actually buying anything, but none the less a bit of fun (especially when you can't sleep!). Please let me know if you like this sort of thing.

The cold weather arriving, and today's miserable downpour has left me yearning for a new winter wardrobe. First stop, the essential winter coat. I have my eyes on two of the main trends this season. The first being a camel coat, the second a sheepskin jacket.

With camel, I think it's always better to go for a classic style, but somehow most of the high street offerings seem a bit straight-laced?



Perhaps I'd be better off going for a classic camel trench? Having such a baby face means sometimes I find it hard to pull off more 'grown up' styles without looking like I have raided grandma's attic!

I'm thinking...


£29.99 H&M


Though perhaps for under £30, this wouldn't look quite so nice in real life.


When I came across this little beauty, my heart melted. Having only had eyes for my worn black leather biker jacket for the past couple of years, in this I may have found a new fail safe. Catching on to the shearling trend, yet remaining inherently 'biker', this jacket seems to do it all. If only it didn't come with the £219 price tag.


£219 Zara


(N.B I think I'd wear it without the cuffs rolled up)

Continuing on the trend of winter warmers, my scarf obsession continues!

Seeing as this is only browsing, I thought I would be allowed to include this


Out of my price range but gorgeous none the less!

And for the Christmas (OK maybe that's too far away) ...Winter parties?


With an embellished belt like this one...


I've also had my eyes on some black riding boots recently. More specifically a suede-leather mix pair from Russel & Bromley but as they don't have an online shop, these beauts will have to take their place (I'd settle for either!)


£160 Bertie (at ASOS)


I know ankle straps/adornment are a little last year, but I'm still a fan of these:


£135 Dune


And of course I couldn't conclude without throwing in a bag for good measure. Lanvin, my personal preferance over a Chanel 2.55 any day. A girl can dream.


OK, It's 3am and well past time to shut down. Anyone detect a penchant for black leather?!
