Spring 2015 Wishlist

Spring 2015 Wishlist
I wasn't exactly on board with SS15 collections until the last week or so, nothing was catching my eye and I didn't think anything could measure up to the magic of the holiday party collections. Now I am still not the biggest fan of Spring but I've found a few pieces that I absolutely NEED. Number one being that incredible green holographic jacket from Ragged Priest. Tears came to my eyes when I saw it for the first time and when pay day rolls around (in two days ahh!!), it's the first thing going in my basket.

Seventies inspired pieces are shaping up to be the biggest trend this Spring/Summer and I could not be more thrilled about it. While bell bottoms sadly do not suit me, there are tons of other 70s trends that I love and I can definitely incorporate into my wardrobe. Suede skirts and bell sleeves are my favourite things right now. This bell sleeved blouse by Milk It via ASOS is stunning, I love the purple paisley print and cropped style. The fringed suede number is from Choies (which you will be seeing very soon hopefully!) and the brown suedette mini is from Boohoo which I think I might buy and then sew buttons down the front to give it a little something extra.

I have of course included yet another holographic bag, because really, there is no such thing as too many and if there was I would be waaaaay past that by now. This one is special though, unlike all my others it is real leather and more 'oil slick' than the typical iridescent silver. I think it's a good contender for a new everyday cross body bag.

What's on your Spring wishlist? Let me know your favourites from mine!

There is a story behind this top, not really an interesting one but a story nonetheless. I had seen it on Instagram and obviously fell in love with it (a yellow printed crop top with long sleeves AND  high neck, how could I not), but I misread the tag and thought it was from H&M. Now the H&M closest to me never gets the nicest things and H&M STILL will not ship to Canada so I just gave up on it. Fast forward to a few weeks later and I see this magical top again on Instagram but this time it's tagged as being from Topshop. I think I did a little happy dance at that point. After all that of course it was sold out on Topshop in my size and I proceeded to check daily to see if one would come back in stock.

An entire week later, after checking multiple times a day, one finally came back in stock and another happy dance ensued. So now this top is mine and I wear it all the time, definitely worth all the trouble and wait. And that is the end of the longest story of how I bought a piece of clothing ever. That's why I have a blog right, so I can share these epic stories with the world (or you know, the two people that actually finished reading through this).

Paisley Kimono - Zara Sale
Snakeskin Shirt - Joe Fresh
Jeans - Old
Boots - ASOS
Bag - Cambridge Satchel Company
Jewelry - Vintage

The Zara winter sale was AMAZING this year. Everything I wanted went on sale for 50% off and I managed to narrow my final purchase down to three items including this gorgeous paisley kimono. It's labeled as a kimono top but it's definitely more of a jacket as it's so thick. I love how vintage-y it looks and it pairs so well with other prints like the snakeskin of the shirt. I know I'll be wearing it constantly for the next few months.

I wore this outfit a few days ago to go shopping. You can see what I picked up on that trip at Sephora and MAC HERE! That was where I spent the majority of my money, no clothing was really standing out to me. Though I did find a faux leather skirt in H&M that you'll be seeing in my next post!

How amazing is this Waiste vintage waistcoat? The teal corduroy and rope toggles have such an elvish vibe, I feel like I belong in Middle Earth when I wear it. I had ordered this and another jacket from Waiste for my birthday, and oh my gosh I am impressed. The shipping was super fast and both pieces I ordered were even more gorgeous than in the pictures, you'll definitely be seeing the jacket in a post soon!

This clutch is another new buy, I bought it sometime during the Black Friday sale for 30% off. It's so obnoxiously large and fluffy, I love it.

A mini Sephora + MAC haul !

MAC Honeylove

If you've followed my blog for awhile you'll know that I am in no way a beauty blogger, it's been strictly fashion from the beginning. I've never been hugely into makeup or hair products, I stick to what I've found works for me and never really branch out into new things. Recently, however, I've started to become more interested in it, and have developed a slight Sephora addiction (whoa that place is overwhelming though!). While I doubt you'll be seeing any type of reviews or tutorials here I thought I might share some recent purchases and see if any of you have tried them or have any recommendations!
