WISHLIST // "Fall forever"

Wednesday, 19 August 2015

(Clockwise to from left hand corner to centre)

Tassel embroidery leather messenger bag // £69.99 // Zara
I can't find a fault with this bag: It's a practical style, actually made from leather, yet it looks quite statement. Because it's black, it's very wearable and would fit in with my wardrobe so well too. The thing that I'm really drawn to about this piece is the gorgeous embroidery, which actually looks quite subtle against the leather. I also love tassels and fringe. In this case it definitely adds a bit of fun to this otherwise muted messenger.

Suede shirt dress // £85 // Asos
Like a dream in burgundy suede, this little Asos number really ticks all the boxes for me. I enjoy the masculine detailing of shirt dresses, but I think this one has a very feminine silhouette. The shape reminds me of a dress I already own which looks very flattering on my figure, so I'm sure this would be great for me too. Not to mention it's seriously 70s, which I absolutely adore (Of course I do - you should know this about me by now)

Jive croc-effect mid-heel shoes // £46 // Topshop
Last Winter, I bought a pair of this exact same style in gold. Those shoes have been so good to me, so I was a very happy bunny when I saw that Topshop have released them in three new luscious Autumnal colours - Burgundy, nude and black. They're also croc-effect, which is something I love about them very much. I'm just so undecided on which colour to get: The burgundy ones (pictured) are amazing, but do I go for a much more wearable black pair? Let me know what you think, readers.

Leather jacket with cow print // £150 // Asos
You can't even begin to fathom how much I need this piece in my life. I saw it in the Asos magazine a little while back and have been lusting over it ever since. This cow print wonder-jacket has actually not even been released on the website yet, but I've been keeping an eye out and checking to see every so often. Since I'm a poor graduate, I don't know if I can really justify it. I may have to set up an Emily's Dream Autumn Jacket cause. Feel free to donate generously. All proceeds go towards me looking stylish.

Tortoiseshell shard earrings // £10 // Topshop
I have a real affinity for plastic tortoiseshell accessories. The colours and patterns of it just remind me so much of the late Summer and Autumn, which is my favourite time of year for fashion (No more awkward Summer dressing - Bring on all those layers and textures!) I simply love these earrings from Topshop: They're quite different and modern, but at the same time definitely look like they could belong to another era. If anyone asks, I can just say they're a quirky vintage find, right?

What key pieces are you hoping to buy to update your wardrobe for Fall season? Comment below.


  1. Gorgeous picks for the wish list, Emily!
    I will probably be dreaming about those earrings tonight lol. That messenger bag is a must-get ;)
    I will be investing in new booties this fall + a cosy coat. Is it too early to get excited about cooler weather? :)

    1. Thank you! I had no idea there was a necklace to match the earrings until I saw it in store today when I was in Topshop. I don't think it's ever too early to get excited for Autumn. It's my favourite time of year for fashion
