January's Luxury Wishlist

I last did one of these in November and I completely forgot to make one last month with all of the Christmas Madness. But It's back and I have to say trawling through pages and pages of things I can't have has surprisingly made me feel happier. It was slightly sad that I had to limit my post to just one pair of shoes as it very nearly became a 'ten pairs of shoes and a lipstick' wishlist but I'm proud of myself for holding back. (I'm aware I like shoes too much, it's okay.)
So here we go:

Even though Christmas is over and it's getting towards spring I'm not ready to give up sparkles or knitwear just yet so this little number would be great for january. I'm not normally a fan of large beads when it comes to embellishment (it reminds me of the big fake gems that used to get put on loads of childrens clothes back in the 90's) but I like the pattern on this one and the way they've used larger and smaller gems to create it. I'd love to wear this with grey jeans and ankle boots.

I think I've probably posted a phone case in every wishlist but I still haven't found the right one but as it costs almost as much as my phone it sadly will never be part of my life. It's still very pretty though.

This is a gorgeous evening fragrance, It would be too overpowering to wear in the day time but I would love this for evenings out. I love Tom fords beauty and fragrance lines, I think the products are extremely good quality and the packaging is just beautiful and luxurious.

I've been coveting these lipsticks for a while, I've heard some great things about them and even though this is the one thing I could possibly afford from this list I can't bring myself to buy one. The main reason being that I can't choose just one colour, there's a few that I really love but I'd want them all, not just one but I think this colour would be a perfect everyday pink, a bit of a 'my lips but better' colour.

I love the sleek simplicity of this dress, although it's a design that you could get from somewhere on the high street, I think that this one would make you feel like a million dollars the way a high street copy never could. It's one of those dresses that can be worn with different accessories and would look lovely on a night out. I might have to get myself a high street copy and pretend it's the real thing.

These are probably my favourite item from this list and I'm thinking about saving up for them (let's hope they don't sell out in the next few months.) I think they could be worn with quite a lot of different things and even though I wasn't sure about the whole 'not having a heel' part, I love them enough that I could make it work for me.

7.  Yves Saint Laurent Arty Ring - £180
I know these rings have been here, there and everywhere in the blogging world these days and to be honest until I saw this one, I didn't really understand the hype. I love how this one has more of a fantastical look to it, it wouldn't look out of place as part of a costume in something like Harry Potter or Lord of the rings and I always think if your going to spend that much on a piece of costume jewellery, you might as well buy something a bit special and so big that people notice it.

8. Yves Saint Laurent Le Teint Touche Eclat Foundation - £28.00
This is another product I've been hearing rave reviews about and as I love the original touche eclat concealer I'd love to try this. It's a bit more pricey than my beloved bourjois healthy mix so it might be a while before I purchase this but I might try a sample first to see if it lives up to all the hype.

9.  Temperley London Deco Embellished Silk Blouse - £795
If only money grew on trees, I would definitely buy this blouse. It's just beautiful and I absolutely love the collar embellishment, there weren't that many trends that I've loved over this past year (seriously, what has been going on this year?) but I've been loving all of the collar detailing. I think the colour is a great transition colour from winter to spring and it would be great for layering under jumpers or worn on it's own.

10. See by ChloĆ© Snake Glitter Acrylic Key Fob - £50
I have far too many keyrings and I just love little unusual ones and that's why I couldn't resist adding this little guy to my list. It's definitely something different and if it was a little (well a lot) cheaper I would be needing this to add to my slightly insane bunch of keys which is about 10% keys and 90% keyrings at the moment.

Hope you guys loved this, Are there any luxury items your wishing for?


  1. I am a fan of all Jeffery Campbell shoes - but these are extra amazing with the buckles and open back <3 Bang on trend too!


  2. YSL is beautiful, especially mixed with Double Wear for a heavier coverage! Working in fragrance the past few weeks has lead me to fall so madly in love with all of the Tom Ford scents! Norelli is amazing too! x

  3. All of these things are lovely! Love the dress!

  4. I want Tom Ford Black Orchid but it is so expensive. I just can't justify it ATM :-( but it smells amazing xx

  5. love the sweater... and I have the YSL foundation! It's okay... just not my favorite. It was a little too "luminizing" for me. Try it out, maybe it will work better for you! Sephora's really good about samples, thats a good way to try it.

  6. I so want the YSL foundation too, I love the concealer and been using it for years!

    I have an international giveaway on my blog, hope you will enter..

  7. Ahh want those jefferys!
