Spring 15 Edit - Lust List

This month is without a doubt the worst & longest wait for payday, am now at the point where I'm having to come up with creative dinner ideas from whatever is in the cupboards, although it is the easiest month to make a wishlist as once the sales have started to dwindle, boom! in comes all this pretty spring stuff & this year its all about 70's 70's 70's!

Topshop never let us down when it comes to any vintage style trends and again they do not disappoint. It has the most dreamiest collection of pinafores, smock dresses and boots which I can't wait to try and see if I can get my hands on when its payday, guarantee these will sell out fast! Here are my best picks of Spring and what's new online & in stores at the mo!

Clockwise from Top: 

Black Lace-Up Front Playsuit - Pretty Little Thing
Brown Paisley Playsuit - Pretty Little Thing

Stripes are also back though this year with more colour,  the monochrome colour block style stripes that have dominated the fashion world for the last few SS season are now  taking a step back and making way for these colourful deck chair, seasidey kinda stripes for a cool spring look. Monochrome stripes are still about though for those of you who who are not fans of colours!

Clockwise from Top

Shirt & Skirt Co-ord - Asos
Black & White Striped Culottes - Primark
Striped Shorts & Tee Co-ord - Zara
Red & White Cropped Jacket - River Island
Monochrome Playsuit - Missguided

Here are some of my fave picks that are also on my lust list for this month. I've been scouting around for new brands to obsess over this year and have found loads of really cool ones including Aussie based label - Discount Universe, Ichiban, Lovers & Drifters and MeeMee. I have had Gypsy Warrior on my radar or some time now but think I def need to make my first purchase with the Rose Nightfall dress! Think mesh dresses are gonna be a great layering staple piece for me this spring whilst we wait for the temperatures to climb! Hurryyy Upppp Summer!

Clockwise from Top

Pink & Grey Glitter Asymmetric Skirt - Ragged Priest
Bambi Print High Neck Top & Shorts Co-ord - Oh My Love
NightFall Mesh Maxi Dress in Rose - Gypsy Warrior
Care Bears Oversized T-shirt Dress - Ichiban
Nevermind Blue & White Shaggy Jacket - Lovers and Drifters
Pastel Fluff Bomb Knit Jacket - MeeMee
Floral Platforms - New Look
Lickity Split Sequinned Halter Top - Discount Universe
Mint Green Glitter Jelly Black Heeled Sandals - New Look

Lastly, I thought I'd also share with you the Primark SS15 spring preview that was held in London a few weeks ago. Some AMAZING things here, that have already started appearing in stores. Primarni just keep getting better and better! The Holographic Jacket is definitely on my wish list for the festival season!

Ripped Wet Look Leggings // Pretty Little Thing
Spiked Creepers // Shoe Zone
Rainbowey 90's Choker // University Vintage Fairs

As the weathers been a bloggers nightmare recently (rainyness = either drowned rat look or very shiney pavements which then when the sun does decide to appear it reflects everything in to the camera, boooo) I took to spending my skint Jan weekend playing on Instagram & discovering some amazing fashion & beauty Instagram accounts which I've shared links to below.

This is one of my Insta outfits I posted up a couple of weeks ago, showing off my new neon print Dinosaur sweater from Topshop. I think it is actually intended to be an indoorsey PJ set as it does come with matching bottoms but I think the sweaters waayyy to cool to wear only inside! I wore it quite alot during the Christmas holidays and to work a couple of times, I just lovvvve the cute dinosaur print!

Label Lust: Valentino Pre-Fall 2015

This GORGEOUS collection is from the Valentino collection for A/W15.. its just stunning! I love looking though high end fashions and seeing what is on the catwalk though its rare that I see something that really makes me go WOW! 

Every piece is inspired by 70's materials and styles including knee boots, smock dresses and high necklines, yet each has a modern twist and is by far one of the best collections I've seen in a long time. Although Valentino is out of my price range, I have my fingers and toes crossed that the high street can offer looky likeys to some of these beautiful designs, particularly the striped boots or the galactic constellation and planet prints <3. I've left some of my favourite picks of the collection below, which ones are your favourite? :)

Maroon Furry Jacket // Primark
Biker Trousers // H&M
Black Vest Top // New Look
Studded Ankle Boots // Pretty Little Thing 

Feeling alot of love for these furry jackets right now, spesh as its got really cold n snowy!

They had LOADS of these in the Primark Oxford Circus Store just before Christmas with amazing candy coloured ones and stripy ones!

As much as I love the candy coloured ones I don't feel like I can pull them off as they look a million times better on peoples with dyed hair like a lilac hue or pinks. Why o why is my hair so thin and lifeless??! would so love to have purple or pink hair, but mine will become too damaged if I dare bleach it as light as needs to be to achieve these shades! :'( *sigh*

Still, Primarni made up for it by making this pretty maroon coloured one <3 Its really thick so perfect for the freezy weather.  My current wardrobe theme seems to be to wear boring black at the mo, as you've prob noticed during my recent pics I have been wearing my leathers to death recently. Don't get me wrong I adore my leathers but could do with them in other colours so I don't feel like I'm wearing dark colours all the time. This furry jacket compliments the all-in-black look perfectly and adds abit of colour back in.

Feather Trim Boxy Crop Tee // Karizma @ Clothes Show
PU Biker Zip Front Trousers // H&M
Biker Boots // Primark

As you may have seen late last year, I popped along to the Clothes Show Live in December for a day of non stop fashion worshipping and of course, shopping!

My fave part of the shopping stalls was the Asos Graduate Marketplace, ten finalists were picked by industry experts to retail, free of charge, at the 2014 Clothes Show Live & were also given the opportunity to retail their collections online in their own boutique through Asos Marketplace

One of the brands that really stood out to me was Karizma, she graduated from London College of Fashion in 2011 and was spotted & commissioned to create pieces for Little Mix's final X-Factor performance. Her designs are known in the fashion industry for her rebellious, high voltage style and she has since then gone on to create pieces for many pop groups and celebrities including The Saturdays, Tess Daley & Poppy Delvigne.

My fave piece from the Karizma range at the Clothes Show had to be this boxy feather trim crop top, like all of her designs its really unique and a total stand out item. It looks great teamed up with these edgy H&M biker trousers to give the soft feathers of the top a more tougher contrasty look.

You can find the boutique on Asos Marketplace here

I'l be featuring more amazing Asos Graduates in the coming weeks, keep your eyes peeled! :)

Thigh High Boots & Chunky Sweater Dress

Thigh High Boots // Sole Affair
Charcoal Knit Jumper Dress // Missguided
Black Pinstripe Trilby // Market stall in Hastings several years ago! 

Abit late to be jumping in on this trend but ah well, better late then never! These were really hard to get hold of, despite so many versions being available from Schuh, Asos & Missguided they have been sold out everywhere! I eventually managed to track this pair down on Sole Affair who have these in either black or grey.

They are the most perfect boot for this season as they are super soft suede and despite the high heel are also super comfy to walk around on a Brighton Churchill Square and Lanes shopping spree (tried and tested!) for several hours. They also are perfect for dressing up a slouchy jumper and making it instantly look chic wheras usually with leather thigh-highs its pretty difficult to not make them look slutty, these suede chunky ones ones look amazing with baggy jumperness, capes and cosy knits, hurrah!

Sales Pick #2 Paisley Brocade Shift Dress

Brocade Paisley Shift Dress // Topshop
Leopard Print Furry T-Bar Shoes // Topshop

Another amazing print from the sales is this Brocade shift dress with its big nod to up and coming 60's/70s tend which is set to be huge this season. I'm amazed this is in the sale as I'm pretty sure is was one of the dresses that was worn by Cara D in the TopShop A/W party wear campaign and it was my fave piece from the whole campaign!

The print is gorgeous, very Nans old wallpaper from the 70's but that's what I really like about it, its really retro! Feel like I've come out of a time warp!

Brocade Dress - Was £65 - Now £20

Love, Sarah x

P.S Speaking of Cara and her most recent TopShop colabs, her 2015 new season video is now live! Take a peek here and start writing your Topshop SS15 wish list now!

Sales Pick #1 Jaquard Skort Suit

  Rainbow Jaquard Skort // Miss Selfridge
Rainbow Jaquard Jacket // Miss Selfridge
Nude Diamante Sandals // Ebay

How amazing is this jaquard skort suit from Miss Selfridge? I have always wanted a shorts suit but have never really found one till I saw this skort one a few weeks ago before the sales.

It ticks all the usual good boxes of being firstly shiney & rainbowy which is a win-win and it was nice enough wait for me till after Christmas to go in the sales for me at 50% off! I'm not usually blessed with much luck in the sales so I was really pleased to pick this up!

Rainbow Skort - Was £35 - Now £10
Rainbow Jacket - Was £55 - Now £20

Love, Sarah x
