May Luxury Wishlist

I've been slacking a little on the blogging front lately, life has just been kicking my arse for a while so how better to relax than looking at pretty clothes I can't afford whilst drinking a proper cup of tea, spoiler: There is no better way, unless you have cake too, that always makes things better.

The Row Hunting Stretch Jersey Dress - £415
 Every one needs a perfect little black dress and If I had the pennies this one would be mine. Long sleeves to hide my usual fake tan disasters as I always fail on the bit of my wrist that goes into my hands (you all know where I mean) Low shoulders to show off the only bit of me that tans nicely, bodycon style and short enough to get the legs out but not so short the world can see everything that I don't want them to see. Which is a lot of words to describe such a simple dress but basically I just really like it so if anyone knows where I can get a cheaper version please let me know.
Chanel Vintage Black Leather Quilted Shoulder Bag - £2,300
It's a little bit materialistic but one of my goals in life is to be able to buy myself a classic chanel bag, I don't want anyone to buy it for me, I want to earn the money all by myself  so that everytime I look at it I'll feel a little sense of achievement. When I do it'll be one very similar to this as it's such an iconic style and of course black and chanel goes with everything.
Vivienne Westwood Mini Bas Relief Pearl Bracelet - £90.00
I love Vivienne Westwood jewellery and this little number is just perfect. The pink toned pearls are so lovely and I love the diamond detailing on the orb. It's another symbol that's instantly recognisable but it's not too in your face and of course you can't go wrong with pearls.
The Row Fefon Silk Organza Maxi Skirt - £1,345
I have a little bit of a thing for maxi skirts and by that I mean I own about ten and I practically live in them all summer. They're so much easier to wear than mini skirts and I don't have to constantly worry about my legs burning, the perils of being so pale (thanks Dad.) It's such a simple piece but it make a statement because of the lovely raspberry colour and it's a great piece for the summer, I'd probably end up wearing this with black accessories but there are so many colours that would work with it.
One Vintage Jeanette Tunic Dress - £1,100
The thing that mainly drew me in to liking this dress is that it looks like a purple version of the dress Kimberly  Wyatt wore to perform on got to dance last year, I love her and the dance was beautiful, you can see it and the dress here (Also just realised I took a class by the guy she's dancing with which is a bit exciting.) That little anecdote aside,  it's a stunning dress and I'd love to find a cheaper version of it for the summer.
Michael Kors Resort Tweed Motorcyle Jacket - £320
I love that this is a mix of two classics, the biker jacket and a tweed jacket but it works so well. It's difficult to see here but it has gold chain detailing on the pockets which is such a nice touch.
Saint Laurent Studded Leather Sandals - £945
I'm not very good at spring/summer style, I wish I could be one of those people who happily buys cream pr nude accesories and shoes but I never feel right wearing them, it's just not me. So these shoes are perfect, they're sandals so I wouldn't look silly wearing them in hot weather but as they're black and studded they have just enough toughness, for lack of  a better word, about them to keep me happy.
Astley Clarke Moonstone Timbrel Ring - £110
I always feel that when it comes to jewellery simple and gold is the way to go, this doesn't look like much but it's just so elegant and it could be worn with any outfit to add just a little bit of something special.
Chloé The Alice Medium Leather Tote - £1,175
I'm still loving the monochrome trend and I probably will be for the rest of my life, it's just such an easy combination to wear. This bag is a lovely nod to the trend and will look good for years to come as it's such a timeless style but then again Chloé have always known exactly what they're doing when it comes to making stylish handbags.
