Currently coveting!

One of my favourite things to do when I'm supposed to be doing something else is to look at clothes and decide what I will buy when I have money in my bank account. Yes, I'm still jobless, but hopefully it won't last much longer. I'm also still procrastinating on revising for my impending exam (Thursday!) although I'm procrastinating way less than I was, so that's progress, right?
£25, Rise
Saw it in my sister's magazine, and I want it. If I lived in summer dresses all the time, I think I would be at least 27% happier.

I was attempting to articulate to a friend how I wished I'd been born in the 50s, because I enjoy baking and big skirts. But then I realised those were my only reasons, and maybe being liberated (whilst baking and wearing big skirts) was a better thing. Anyway. Isn't this dress lovely? BUTTONS. And it's in the sale!

£18, ASOS
In the sale! I MUST HAVE IT. A little bit Chanel and oh so cute.

£16, ASOS.
I've wanted this belt forever. It finally comes back on the site after being sold out, and I have no money. :( Elephants = awesome.
A couple of maybe-skirts. Why does the perfect black skirt not exist? I have one from ASOS, and it's mad cute and flattering from the front, but from behind it makes my (already not-small) bum look huuuuge. Madness. Both ASOS, both £15.

I also have a serious yellow skirt fetish at the moment. I have no clue where it came from.
ASOS, £20

I'm still looking for the perfect leather jacket, but it just doesn't seem to exist. The irony of the situation is that when I talk to my friends about the perfect leather jacket in my head, they're all like, 'That IS the perfect leather jacket and I want it, why doesn't it exist?' I mean, right? Somewhere just needs to sell a leather jacket that is fitted, slightly cropped (landing at the point where the waist meets the hips) in a blazer style. No bomber jacket details. No biker attachments. Definitely no double-breasted] or asymmetrical zips. Perfect, right? So why doesn't it exist? SOB.

Although, saying that, now I'm seriously considering this
ASOS number. Hmmmm.


  1. ooooh. want that black and white dress. WANT.

    that skirt i linked to you yesterday is, I am convinced, the perfect black skirt. I say that, not having tried it on, but, you know.

  2. But wasn't it navy?

    ASOS do really fast delivery, so if you did want anything, we'd have time to order it and send it back if you didn't like it. It's kind of a dangerous site though, because of all the pretties. I'm obsessed with the red buttons dress.

  3. I'm looking for a sun dress, but the ones I've tried on it stores looked horrible on me. Never bought clothes online though cause how do you know it will fit?

    Also I like the first one too. And the black and white one.

  4. Sorry for the very late comment, Tineke, but the way I always buy online, if I'm unsure, is buy two sizes and send one back. ASOS have a good returns service.


Comments make my day. :) I love you.
