One of my favourite past times is perusing the virtual shelves of luxury online stores and adding all the loveliness to a wish list or fantasy shopping basket! Now it’s a momentous day when I actually make a purchase so all of this is purely in the realms of fantasy but hey, a girl can dream right? Here are my top ten fantasy buys that are getting me hot under the collar this Christmas. Mr.R, if you’re reading…
The Rolls Royce of blazers make no mistake! We all know I love a blazer and this one has been on the life lust list for quite some time! The Balmain signature blazer is significantly more structured than my usual picks and yes it will always be just a little bit ‘wag-ish’ but hey, I’m cool with a little bit of wag style now and then!
Jimmy Choo Romy Pumps
My Jimmy Choo Black patent Abel pumps are probably one of the most worn pair of shoes I own so I’m desperate to add the Romy (in the lower 85mm heel) to my collection. This blush suede pair are the perfect paradox of practical and impractical…they’ll go with anything and everything but blush pink suede? Did someone say high maintenance?
A year or so ago my mum bought me what is essentially a wallet on a chain…a small bag big enough for your phone with card slots and a zip compartment. Now as much as I love my other bags, this is the one I reach for on a day to day basis. It’s small and light, it basically acts as a purse and I can wear it cross body. This Prada bag would be the perfect upgrade for days where something a little more dressy is required.
Chloe Susanna Boots
I feel like I’m hugely late to the party with this one. The Susanna boots have been on the market for so long they have doubled in price and spawned a Topshop dupe! They are definitely having a moment right now but I can see me wearing these until my dying day! They remind me of (a much more glitzy version of) a pair of Ash cowboy boots I had and wore until they had been re-soled so many times they dropped to pieces.
Diptyque Dragon Scented Candle
A Christmas candle is always such a special treat and really helps to get you into the festive spirit! I adore Diptyque and the Christmas collection this year is beyond gorgeous! Three warming, festive scents in the most beautiful glass votives (I use mine for storing makeup brushes once the candle has burned down) choose from Dragon, Unicorn or Pheonix…I’m not gonna lie, I think I need fall three the only issue being I feel like I need this in my life right now so festivities can well and truly commence!
Charlotte Tilbury Lip Masterclass
I’ve always been more of an eye than a lip girl but I’m starting to feel that now I’m in my thirties I really should have mastered the art of applying a proper, full-on lip! This collection by Charlotte Tilbury has given me all the heart eyes and surely would give me the incentive to play at ‘being a real grown-up who wears lipstick and everything’!
Maria Tash Mini 18-Karat Gold Diamond Earring
I mentioned a while ago that I’m having a bit of a moment with earrings and have been lusting after anything from Maria Tash for quite some time. This super simple yet super chic mini hoop would be quite a delight to find tucked away in my stocking…Santa if your listening?
Mejuri Beaded Ring
These gold skinny stacking rings are so bloomin awesome but present me with two problems. Firstly, despite my best efforts and intentions, my hands are looking a little rough, dry and just generally a bit worse for wear. Not the best for showing off these delicate little beauties. Secondly (and yes I’m aware that this is a bit of a first world problem) which one do you choose? They’re all so morish! Obviously, I can’t do much about the latter (except maybe buy all the rings which does seem rather excessive) but if somebody would like to gift me some products by Margaret Dabbs well that would be just fabulous!
Isn’t this baby blue colour a dream? This scarf seems made for snuggling up on icy, wintry days and manages to look both cosy and ‘tres chic’ all at once! I have a feeling that this is the type of accessory that would live in your wardrobe for a long long time!
Joseph Leather Leggings
Many years ago I was the proud owner of the ultimate leather leggings from By Malene Birger. Supple, soft, stretchy leather that didn’t ‘knee’ or ‘sag’ they were perfection. Unfortunately, said leggings were involved in an incident which even now makes me wince. If I said the incident involved a bottle of ‘bleach heavy’ mould and mildew remover would you get the gist? Yes…it was a sad sad day indeed. Anyway, since that sad day, I have never had the heart (or the pennies) to replace them but I’m pretty sure this fantasy pair by Joseph would greatly help the grieving process along!
