weekend wishlist #015

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6

1. Question: the turban, a goodie or a big no-no? This one looks really big, but it's not one of those really tight hair accessories, at least it doesn't look like it, so I think I'm going to take the plunge and order this! I've had my eye on it for a little while, then it sold out. It came back in stock this morning and then I saw it on Lauren's blog, so what the heck! Worth a try right?

2. Does this remind anyone else of the YSL rings? I really like the colour, it's probably going to be one of the brightest coloured things I've purchased in ages! I saw it in Lakeside the other day with my mum and nearly bought it, and then only remembered that I didn't when I got home.. *cry*

3. I don't know about you, but I'm one of those people that finds it nearly impossible to find the perfect pair of jeans! I have short, thick legs, normal/big hips and quite a small waist, so it's always hard to get some that I really like. I think ALL of my jeans need to be turned up at the bottom! I've been looking at these petite high waist 'Betsy' ones from Topshop, but because of my waist/hips ratio I don't think they're gonna fit properly! I'm ordering them anyway since my local store never has my size in petite, I wanted to try the super soft Leigh jeans too but they didn't have black petite ones online so I'm gonna have to look in store for those! Fingers crossed I find (and like) them!

4. It's got to that point where I'm a bit bored of my perfumes (I wear Marc Jacobs Daisy and Lola mostly) and I tested this out on my wrist the other day. I really like it, I think it totally suits me. I do like the 'eau fraiche' version as well (green bottle) so I just have to make my mind up! If anyone knows of any fresh but girly scents, that have staying power, please let me know!

5. I know, I know, you've probably seen these on a few blogs lately too, but they are just so cute and a lot more attainable than a Mulberry Alexa! I just can't decide if I want black, tan, or black and tan mixed? I need to make my mind up, or better still, stop wanting things I don't actually need.. if you haven't seen these before, they are by a brand called Chiltern, I can't even find a website or page on the history of the brand though! Apparently they are quite easy to find in charity shops, but the ones near me are pretty rubbish, and I hardly know what I'm doing when I go in one, so I'll most likely be looking to get one on eBay. Not really sure which kinda price I should be paying though?

6. These are the shoes I was talking about the other day! They were a second-best to the Zara pair I wanted that turned out to be discoloured, they both did but at least I can still get these! I think they will be easier to keep clean too, so it's all good!

  1. I really like that ring, not too expensive either. I totally agree about jeans, I'm only 5 foot (maybe 5 foot 1 if I'm feeling generous) and finding the right length and fit is impossible. I usually get them in Miss Selfridge or Topshop, but they seem to be an oddly short length even on me, the shorter end of the petite spectrum! God knows who they model their petite jeans on... xx

  2. Ooh, I adore that Topshop ring. It looks so intricate and extravagent! I really love that bag too. I used to own the Primark leopard print loafers. These RI ones look soooo nice! Lovely wishlist sweet.

  3. You should definetley get the turban, I bought it the other day and its now sold out in my topshop. It works well for the day and night. Love the leopard shoes too! x

  4. i love the turban, i've been looking for one everywhere as i think they're so gorgeous! so definitely get that one :-)
    i have the same problem with jeans, i don't own a pair that aren't rolled up! i've never tried topshop one's though but will now!

    oh and try estee lauder sensuous, it's amazing and lasts all day. a little pricey but completely worth it! it's my everyday fragrance :-)

  7. Definitely just go ahead and splurge on the turban! I have a feeling it'll suit you :-) The ring is gorgeous and so is that bag! The charity shops around my area are pants as well, it's unfortunate cause I hate it when people find treasures in their local ones!
    I have the vintage wash in the Leigh jeans and they are the comfiest jeans I've ever worn! Kind of like leggings, so buttery and free. Hope you manage to find a pair! In terms of perfumes, still by Jennifer Lopez is nice, very sweet and girlie scent.

  10. I'm a bit iffy on the turbans too, they are a really cool accessory but for me I think they are just something that would not suit me.
    Love the ring and the bags is gorgeous :)

  11. ebay has a few chiltern bags, some modern, some vintage and priced from only £20, hope that helps, x

  12. Yes to Chiltern! I seem to have started something here, ha, as Sally from Louder than Silence is getting one too :) I really like the tan and black actually!

    Also am enjoying turbans but they look a bit silly on me, might not have found the right one yet. Also adore the flats!

  13. yes to ALL off that! i love it all, defo the turban though i really wanted it too but bottled out last minute and bought the headband version but i really think you would pull it off because you have such a pretty face (sorry for sounding like a weirdo.

    im after one those bags too but i think they will be too little for me because i like to carry a lot around with me, but its a perfect size for a night out with a pretty dress and heels!

    essay over ;)

  16. oh defo a yes to the turban x

  17. I got those jeans for Christmas! They're lovely and flattering, I haven't had them off since.

    From your description of your figure you sound quite similar to me - big hips, small waist, they fit me fine so hoepfully they'll look fab on you too. Oh and I got a 30" leg rather than the petite ones. I'm only 5ft2 but I always find petite trousers are too short. :S x

  18. that ring does remind me of the YSL one, but so much better looking, always thought that ysl one was a bit odd, but the 'stone' was so pretty.
    that Chanel perfume smells wonderful as well! i couldn't agree more.

  19. Lovely products as always :-) Especially like the ring, I almost bought the blue/greeny one but like you left it then regretted it later, love the style of jeans too x

  20. I love the bag, and I really like the turban as well - can't wait to see it in outfit posts :)

    I was in a bit of a perfume rut too but found a loovely one bu Moschino called Light Clouds - very rich scent, and very addictive!

  21. Love all these! The ring does remind me of the YSL ones and I'm the exact same with jeans. Also, I have the eau fraiche version of that perfume and it's probably my favourite! Really girly/fresh scent. I'm thinking of getting the pink one too though because it is beautiful! x

    ReplyDelete
  22. Wow i actually thought that was a YSL ring, its beautiful! Im ok with turbans, they look quite cool as long as they are worn correctly, and i too adore that bag.

  23. I like those turbans but dont know how I'd feel about having flat hair lol
    I was looking at those Chiltern bags on ebay too last week but thought they were a bit pricey, as they weren't even leather.. I found one near enough the same as your pic in a charity shop for a tenner :) it's green and tan leather xo.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh wow I have that bag but I bought it at the clothes show, I got it for £20 but that was discounted so a reasonable price to pay would be about £25 or £30 but like you've said look on ebay and try not to be conned by over the top prices. But if you can find one cheaper is some charity shops then go for it :)
    I got the black and tan one just because I think black is too basic and I liked the contrast of the colours. I love mine it keeps everything super organised :)

  25. Great wishlist :) I have the opposite thing with jeans, i get into the habit of just always wearing them when i feel like i have noting to wear!Oh and Chiltern bags are lovely. I got one early last year for £30 from a boutique, which is quite expensive i think. Hope that helps :) xx

  28. From what I've seen, if anyone can rock a turban or eclectic headband, it'd be you. Go for it!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I have that exact Chiltern bag, the black/tan one, I usually hate brown and black together but it's lovely :) I paid £2 for mine at a carboot sale! x

    ReplyDelete
  30. I have the jeans above :)
    They are lovely and go with everything but they stretch at the top loads so they don't have the perfect high waisted look for ever. What do you think? I still love wearing them but definitely take that in mind :D

  35. I have those jeans! I bought them a while ago in the hope that I would find a pair of skinnies that would fit me (I'm 5'4 with an hourglass figure). I really wouldn't recommend them. I had to buy a size a lot bigger than my waist so they wouldn't be too tight on my calves, so they're baggy on my waist. I can't even adjust it with a belt as the belt loops are so small (plus around the hips, not the waist) no belts fit them. Because they're baggy on my waist, they fall down and I get a dropped crotch look. Of course I didn't realize this in the shop because they're tight and stiff the first time you wear them. T_T
    Not a great review but just to give you some idea if you wanted to buy them!

  36. Hmmm, that bag is so cute. It reminds me of vintage d&b. It might be my favorite style of handbag satchel .

  37. Absolutely love that Chanel perfume!
    Totally addicted after one spray in Boots.
