I'm not sure if it's just because I'm menstrual, and therefore in a pissy mood, but I've been online for the last couple of days trying to treat myself to something, but I'm not seeing much I like. I've looked at Evans, New Look Inspire, Dorothy Perkins, ASOS Curve, Yours and Simply Be. Simply Be and Evans are the only places I've actually seen anything I even vaguely want to buy. I've always been a bit of a tomboy but I'm REALLY into knee length dresses and cute motif cardigans at the moment, but I'm not seeing much that falls into that category. It might be that I'm just being too picky. The only cardigan I've seen that I like is the Beth Ditto one from Evans, but I can't justify spending £40 on a short cardy.
I also fancy this dress from Evans, although I'm not sure why, or even if would suit me, and it doesn't fit in with my current cute dress/cardi fetish.I just really love black and grey stripes.
There are a LOT LOT LOT of things I want from Simply Be, first and foremost a new winter coat. I always struggle with the dilemma of looks and warmth in a winter coat, and admit I've gone for style over substance many a time and ending up freezing all winter long. I think I've found a nice compromise here. Simply Be don't allow you to copy photos like Evans do, so I've had to screen-grab, but here we go.
It's a swing coat with a large hood and it's £65. I can play Red Riding Hood all winter long :)
Other things I've seen on SB I covet are this cardi in mink at £40.
I ADORE this maxi dress. £46.
I really love the new season purpley-grey shades. I love this dress. £45.
I haven't seen anything that fits my current fancy, but here's another muted colour I'm loving this season.
I've also got quite a thing for lace. Here's another nude shaded top at £35.
Ooh! A break from this mutedness. The Barbie in me loves this dress at £40.
Back again to ze colours of ze earth, this cardi is £32.
Mmm. I have a long standing love of the checked shirt, or as they were called in 'my' day, a lumberjack shirt. This is £27.
This jacket is right up my alley, in a kind of My Chemical Romance video kind of way.
(That will be the only mention of MCR ever on this blog)
(Except perving pics of Gerard Way in eyeliner)
Should I start robbing a bank now or later?
Here's a rather yummy studded jumper at £30.
Ummm....I think this post is making it apparent I have a serious cardi fetish.
This Jeffrey & Paula cardi I want in all 3 colourways - grey stripe, black and red. There is more likelihood of me winning the lottery than having the money to buy all these things! £25.
I would tie those pixie ends up under my boobs
We don't need a picture of it in black, as we know what black looks like.
A bit more of J&P. This is £30.
Again, it's grey and stripey so I want it!
I quite like this scarf, because it's 79 inches long. 79 inches! I could rappel down buildings with this. It's £15. Is 79 inches of scarf for £15 reasonable? I've since seen similar scarves in Primarni for £3, so guess where I'll be going?!
I have avoided displaying my secret shame to you so far - my Bet Lynch-esque love of leopard print. Here is a lovely long line top at £26.
About the last 3 pairs of jeans I've bought have been grey, and here are some more. These motorbike jeans are £35.
I do love my pyjamas on cold rainy evenings and these Joe Browns ones are great at £36.
This is MORE than enough for now. Not bad for someone who can't find anything they like, eh?!
Thanks for reading!
