What I wish I could Buy!


haven’t made a Lust List or Wishlist post as some people like to call in almost two years. So though it was time to bring them back and start doing them again on my blog. Mainly because I have loads of clothes, shoes, accessories and sometimes even makeup and homewares, that I love to buy but can never afford.

This whole lust list is from French Connection as the for the first time in a long time I’ve found a store where I could easily buy my entire summer wardrobe from. Had picked out most of the pieces from the French Connection Summer range, but as to not make this post so long I’ve decided to just share with you all my top ten favorites.

Not sure if all French connection’s around the world will be stocking this range, but it if you’d like to check out more of this range head on over to French Connection AU. They do ship Internationally so if they don’t stock at your local store or you don’t have a store where you live you may be able to get it shipped in.

Not sure if I’ve gone a bit overboard with this post. So please let me know what you think of this style of post and if you’d be interested in seeing more posts like this in a similar style.

Black off the shoulder dress-STOCKING UP ON SOME NEW SUMMER THREADS


Never been a big fan of the off the shoulder look, but totally loving it this season. Especially this one as it’s spotted has pom poms and is in one of my favourite colours black

Currently sold out online as I’m writing this post, but you might be able to get it in stores. Do have the top version in stock still which you can shop here


The frill trend seems to be super popular this season. I’m not normally one to follow the trends, but really like the look and having stock up on some frills back in England that I’m yet to were felt it was time to stock on some more.

Again out of out stock online, might still be in store, but here is another frill top you can shop here here

White Frill no Selves Top
Draw String Striped Bag
White Sleeveless Dress


Realised that 95% of the bags that I buy are all black, mainly because black is one my favourite colours and also because they just match everything. But thought this eason it was time to bring in a hint of pattern and colour.Then came across this one which ticks all the boxes and more.

This one is still in stock which you can shop here here


As lovely as this dress is, at this stage is probably number 10 in my favorite’s list. Due to the fact that it’s so expensive. I feel like you could get so many more stylish dress for the same price even cheaper. Having said that if it goes on sale and they still have my size in I will buy as I’ve always wanted a dress in this style

You can shop it here here

Spotted Black T-shirt


I feel like all the sequin sparkly clothing that I own is just two formal. So this would be perfect for that every day sequin/sparkly look.

Shop my Velvet Ankle Boots here


Lovely this style of top, but it’s definitely something I would need to try on as it can sometimes look great with shorts or sometimes make me look about 16. One of the downsides of looking young for your age.

Only got one size left online so will have to get in quick or head to your local store shopΒ here

White Smock Top
Spotted Sleveless Dress
Spotted White/Silver Clutch


Not normally a navy blue person, but have to say that this is the one niest dress I’ve found this season. Love fact that as it only has patches of siquines, so that it can be worn everyday or for a special occassion.

You can shop it here here


Never been a big clutch person, but in recent years have really started loving them. So when I saw this white one with silver spots I knew that I needed it as it would be prefect for all year round.

You can shop it here here

White kimono


Only own one Summer poncho, so thought this would be perfect to add to the collection as it goes with virutual anything. Also the great things is it currently on sale.

You can shop here


If I had to I could easily live in stripes for the rests of my life. What’s more perfect than being able to wear black & white in one

You can shop it here

Stripped Layered Sleeveless Top

    I love the look of the dobby dress and lucky layer tank top, I think it would also look good as a dress

    Love everything on here, but especially that top with the sequins. I realized the other day I needed to start thinking about spring/summer clothes, since I have plenty for the winter and spring will be here before I know it. Great list and much needed inspiration!
