Wednesday Wish List

13 Jul
Desa Pony in Layers

My handbag habit is getting pretty serious these days. Apart for the Alexander Wang, they’re all pretty subtle though, aside from the soft leather and a few hardware details they look pretty ordinary and under the radar, exactly how handbags should look I think. Which is why I adore the bags by luxury brand Desa. This ruffled leather beauty is £435 and available at their stores in St Martin’s Courtyard in Covent Garden and Hamstead high street or online
Mellow Yellow Jenvy

I had my eye on these colourful Jenvy platforms a while ago and I’m finding it really hard to resist them, especially now that they have a massive 60% off in the Sarenza sale. I already have a pair of crazy high Mellow Yellow platforms and can attest to their comfort, I even wore them to drive in! These babies are just £60.40 in the sale from £151, get them while you can. 


Medwinds Marsella tote

Back in February, I fell in lust with the Marsella tote when I went to the Medwinds showroom in Barcelona. The leather was unbelievably soft and the size was absolutely perfect for carrying a laptop or iPad. When I saw it again at the UK press launch, it was incredibly difficult to leave without casually slinging the sample over my shoulder and pretending it was mine! The tote is available on the website for £109.

Rare pleated chiffon midi skirt

I’ve been enamoured with midi length pleated chiffon skirts since I first clapped eyes on the elusive Whistles Carrie skirt. This version from Rare hasn’t caused a stampeed just yet, but it’s sassy on the knee length and deep purple colour make it a great buy for colour blocking this season and pairing with warmer, Autumnal tones next season. Best of all, it’s just £35 and available on the Rare website

Bitching & Junkfood Remade bitchy stud shorts.

These Bitching & Junkfood Remade shorts are all sorts of rad in one teeny pair of reworked vintage shorts. They took a pair of high-waisted Levis 501s, distressed them by hand for custom rips and shredded and added some killer spike studs down the side. Available at Bitching & Junkfood for £75. 


Aqua Fleetwood maxi dress

Aqua are one of my newest favourite labels, their structural and futuristic designs feature strong lines and striking silhouettes. This maxi dress is a little different from their usual slashed and cut out dresses, but I adore the structured shoulders and bold print which is a little Christopher Kane. Available at Asos for £140. 


Aqua Couture

7 Feb
While browsing the Asos website for a dress which fits the ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ fancy dress theme (more on that later), I discovered a brand I had not heard of previously – Aqua Couture. Normally, I despise a company which has ‘couture’ in the name, but I’m willing to overlook that. I love the shapes, the silhouette is very different and was reminiscent of the Bryce Aime Spring 2010 show, especially the black dress with the amazing shoulders!
