This Weeks Wish List…..

Well I was going to do an Outfit post for all you lovely people to see. However it appears that I just couldn’t do it today. I looked horrendous. Yummy mummy? Not even close! I was tired, bags the size of luggage under my eyes and just as I was gearing myself up to take a few pic’s, I picked Neo up and he kindly deposited a nice present to mummy. I’ll give you a hint, the present deposited to mummy was not a nice pair of shoes, it was a nice bright orange stain down my lovely white boho blouse.

So that left me picture un-perfect and was the deciding factor of no photos today!

So when in doubt, go window shopping!!

Gimme a big pot of cash and this is what I’d currently like to buy:


I’m really loving vintage finds at the moment and this is a fake vintage, it’s new, but still pleasing to the eye and a great piece for A/W.

River Island

Missoni print I love, Missoni prices not so much! This River island retro dress is funky and kinder to my poor little purse.

River Island

I have wanted to buy a pleated skirt for a while now. I keep seeing lovely bloggers looking com-pleat-ly(HAHA) perfect in pleats and I  wanna try! Green my fav colour, and pleats, ooo yes please. I might make this one a gift from me to me. I fancy trying it with black one day and tan another. Re-mixable surely equals a must!

River Island

Retro prints are a huge contender for my A/W wardrobe. This comeS in midi and maxi length too!

F&F for Tesco

I seem to have developed a crush on capes. I want one. I want one now.


I LOOOVVEEE this dress. 

Flattering cut: check! 

Funky print: check!

Sleeves: check! ( I get cold easy!)


Whole outfit is Walis. Growing up Walis was kinda for older ladies, nicely dressed older ladies, but older none the less. Now either I’m getting old or they’ve upped their game. I’m hoping it’s the latter.

Silent Sundays

American pretty Vintage


A lovely lace top in Ginger. Ginger is a fab colour!

I’ve realised my list could go on and on. So I’ll stop teasing myself and leave it there. Going to go check my bank balance and check I didn’t “accidently” just purchase anything ;o)

    Hi Rachel

    Thanks for following me – I'm following you now as well. Some nice pieces there. Have you found Vix over at yet? She completely embraces 60s/70s style.

    Great choices! Do you have Target in England? Missoni is doing a line for Target this fall I can't wait! The prices will be much better! The cape is so fab! I've been eyeing them up too! May you win a pot of money and shop to your hearts content!
