I was wondering around London yesterday with my flatmate Miri who was spending some of her birthday vouchers, and as I’m as good as broke (and now iPhoneless: see here) until I get my student loan and wages on the 22nd April, I was crying a little inside when I couldn’t buy anything I saw in the shops – so I thought I’d do my very first wishlist. I don’t usually do fashion or beauty posts so bear with me here.
First off Topshop:
What caught my eye the most in Toppers were these adorable leather ‘MARTINA’ cut out sandals for £30,
which look like 70’s schoolgirl shoes! I couldn’t find them on the UK Topshop website but a similar pair came up on the Topshop USA site as ‘MARTINA geek T-bar sandals’. I don’t like that they’re classified as geeky shoes but whatever. I do tend to live in my Havianna’s during the summer but I think these would look so cute with a summer dress or high waisted shorts and a tee/croptop/shirt. I think they’d go with everything to be honest and I really want them. I probably might have bought them ydy but I couldn’t decide if I liked the black or cream best, I’m so indecisive!
Also in Topshop I really liked these 90’s style round sunglasses for £16. I really like the black and white and the circle is the perfect size – not too big or small. I was thinking about buying the Rayban Original Round Sunglasses this summer, but I think I will buy these instead… Or until I go on holiday in June and can get some duty free Raybans!
Another piece in Topshop that Miri picked up was this midi ombre t-shirt dress for £29. I wouldn’t have thought to look at it myself but I think this would look amazing as a summer daytime outfit with sunnies, a fedora and flip flops, or for summer evening with a pair of heeled boots and a gold necklace.
Next up is Nike:
I am on a mission to get in shape for my holidays to Paris and Mexico this summer now that I’ve finished uni and I have more time on my hands. I used to run a few years ago before uni, and I’m hoping to get back into running. I am desperate for a new pair
of running trainers to replace my Asics that are pretty much falling apart as they’re so old now. I have just seen these very cool Gel-noosa Tri 8’s on the website that I think look awesome, however I think when I get my loan I’m going to treat myself to a pair of Nike 4.0 Free Runs. I don’t really know much about running shoes, but I know that the free runs are meant to be like running without shoes but giving your knees and feet the support that they need.. I think? I’ll probably go into Nike to chat to them about what shoes would be best for me as my knees are a bit dodgy.
Finally Opening Ceremony:
I am obsessed with this clear clutch bag for £35 from 202 Factory at OC. My friend has the hollographic version of this clutch and it is amazing! These bags were all over Fashion Week and I might buy myself one as soon as I start making some money from working over the next few months!
So that’s my wishlist for April. I hope you liked my wish list, I might start doing more of these if people like them. Feel free to comment any thoughts on these items.
