Wishlist #1

01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06

01Topshop Raspberry Jersey 3/4 Sleeve Skater Dress
I love this dress, it has a low back line, not really practical as it will probably show a bra strap, but i can work around this. The sleeves make it acceptable for layering in the winter with a thick cardigan or coat and in the hotter months on it's own with a cute pair of shoes.

02. Topshop grey speckled marl jersey midi dress
This dress is quite different to what i would usually wear, especially the length but i really like it, I have seen it in shops and tried it on many times, but every time i do i never have the money to buy it, or i am not persuaded enough to walk up to the till. 

03. Gold curved metal choker necklace
I am definitely going to be purchasing this necklace, i have seen people wearing it on nights out and also make it work with day time outfits, it is so versatile. I know you can get it from Topshop, H&M and other high street shops but i am going to snap it up at a bargain price from eBay. 

04. Platform wooden block high heels
Yes, they are the infamous Jeffery Campbell lita look-a-likes that everybody seems to have, and i just can't resist myself. I wish i could afford the real things, but unfortunately i am not rich.

05. Topshop vintage lace dress
This dress is just adorable, a while back they brought out a black one but i never go it, when they brought out this i basically died in Topshop, i haven't yet bought it but I am very tempted to. And yes, you are probably beginning to see a pattern through this post, I am obsessed with Topshop and eBay as well as Urban Outfitters.

06. American Apparel disco pant
Last, but not least the disco pant of course. I love these, but what are American Apparel thinking, £70?! I am fifteen, i don't having money growing out my pockets, but a girl can dream. If i could i would almost certainly get theses in every colour available.

My purse | Topshop

My purse is from Topshop and cost £22 - Is it me or are purses becoming really expensive, the cost of it is more than the amount i usually have in it? Anyway it was originally my mum's and she had it for around a week, then i started to become jealous, i wanted this purse. So we made a deal that I would buy her another one and we would swap, the one I bought for my mum was £6 cheaper, so basically I only paid £16 for mine.

The purse itself has three sections, the first is just a space where i keep my notes - which i rarely have. The zipped section i keep loose change, and the last section has six slots where I keep my cards. Of course because i'm only fifteen i don't own credit cards or anything, i keep my Boots/Superdrug cards here, my bus pass and vouchers, also i stick my receipts here as well.

Not the exact purse, but you can find a similar one here

Slightly off topic here but I had my second GCSE exam today, English language. I'm eager to get my results in August but got many more exam's before then, i just hope that i can secure a good mark and not have to resit.

School bag | past and present

 My school are really strict with rules, especially uniform regulations so the majority of my school bag has to be black. I have always liked the look of Satchels, as they are sturdy and practical for school or other uses. Bags these days are really expensive within high street shops so i turned to eBay,  where i found the brand LYDC London, they are a London based company but their collections are also sold throughout eBay. I first got the Plain black satchel with gold buckle detail around about half way through year eight, it lasted me roughly two years and cost approximately £23 including postage. Overall i think it lasted a long time and was worth the money, considering some of my previous bags haven't even lasted 6 months.

Recently i bought another bag by the brand, and I am in my last term of year ten. The design is similar being a satchel but the buckles are slightly different and this one has white polka dots.The price was similar to my past bag, roughly £24 from eBay. I bought the bag in hope that it would do the same job and last me at least till the end of year eleven which is less than a year away. If the bag holds up like i'm sure it will, i will probably use it through college.

I recommend the brand as their products are sturdy and practical, not all of the collection is for me but from what i have experienced they are definitely worth investing in. 

You can see the exact listing that I bought mine from here but there are other sellers available to purchase from on eBay, and some have been added that are cheaper here
