More suede and more fringe - I am obviously 70s obsessed. I did not hesitate adding this ASOS suede fringed waistcoat to my cart one bit when it was added to the site, I knew it would sell out super fast (it did, but Forever 21 does a similar-ish one that is also pretty nice!) and didn't want to regret not getting it. It's probably my favourite thing I have ever found on ASOS, it's such good quality, was pretty reasonable in price, AND it looks amazing with everything.

I wore the waistcoat with my favourite top because who doesn't like wearing all their favourite things at once, and I thought the print looked perfect with the studded design. The Zara fringed bag makes another appearance here, as it also looks incredible with everything. I feel like I need another fringed bag- slightly bigger and in black. There are a couple really nice ones from Zara and River Island but oh man they are expensive and I have spent waaaay to much on clothing recently!

How amazing is this vintage 60s dress from Waiste Vintage?!? I love the psychedelic floral print and mini length, such a perfect dress for layering. I have been spending quite a bit of time (and money ahhh) on waiste.co.uk recently and have been praying for Saturday's off so that I will be home for their weekly stock drop. Saturday's are proving to be expensive days for me lately! It's definitely been worth it though, I have found some incredible pieces and I find that buying vintage is so much more satisfying than buying new.

I am back and in full 70s mode (high fives to everyone who knows what show my title is a reference to). I am all for following trends as they come and go but I feel like the 70s trend this season just speaks to me, I've realized this is the style that suits me and I think I am going to stick with it.

So you might have seen this top in my last wishlist post, well it obviously arrived and I am absolutely in love with it. Bell sleeves are an absolute dream to wear, they make me feel like I have wings. They are also a fabulous substitute for bell bottoms which, unfortunately, just do not work for my body type . The suede skirt and fringed bag are also new to my wardrobe, both from Zara. Zara is seriously killing it with their spring/summer collection, I want everything. This bag has become my go-to despite it's annoyingly small size and I think you might get sick of seeing it on me (as my next 2 posts also include it haha).

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).
