Autumn Accessories Wishlist

It's been a while since I put together a wishlist! Lots of bloggers do one every week (Victoria's one in particular always inspires me) and it's a great way to see what's on their fashion radar. Here's a sneaky peak of what I've had my eye on lately, and I am sure you won't be surprised by any of it. Backpacks, leopard print shoes and orange lipstick. WHAT a surprise.

1. Plain band rings - ASOS
2. Black bowler hat - ASOS
3. Metallic backpack - Stylistpick
4. Orange lipstick in Hedonist - Topshop
5. Leopard print courts - Spartoo

I've mentioned a couple of times that I've been buying more pieces to fit into my work wardrobe. Since my student days are over I'm not really in a position to wear leggings and converses every day (sad face). Finding shoes for work has been tricky, especially for a non-heel wearer like me, but I LOVE these leopard print ones, so I will feel the fear and do it anyway. 

I'm still yet to find an orange lippie that is as moisturising as I need. I'm hoping this Toppers one fits the bill as I have dozens of unsatisfactory ones which are either been to cake-y or too balm-y. I want BRIGHT, damnit!

On another note...

I am so happy to announce that the winner of my Holga giveaway is....
Rachel from Cold Knees!

Woohoooo! I'll be in touch to arrange your prize, and thanks to everyone else who entered. I'll be holding another giveaway next week featuring one of my sponsors, so keep your eyes peeled for that.

Happy Sunday lovelies!

  1. I REALLY want a hat like that but I have a stupidly big head and none of them fit. Wouldn't mind if my head with filled with a supersized, intelligent brain but it's not :( I'm on the lookout for backpacks in charity shops and army surplus stores at the moment x

  2. Are backpacks making a comeback? Cause me and my sore back are really, really happy with that prospect!
    Love those leopard print pumps, they are veh pretty.

  3. Ooh the gold rings would look lovely with the leopard print and blacks :) Nice choices!

  4. I have the gold band rings and they work well in just giving that outfit a bit of an extratouch without over-accessorising! xx

  5. gees i'd really struggle with a proper work uniform, you manage it though

  7. I really really need a backpack... Saw the most gorgeous aztec-ey one, that's for sure on my wishlist! xo

  8. Love the colour of that lippie! If you're looking for a bright colour that's really moisturising too then have a look at clinique chubby sticks... they're waaaay more expensive than what I'd normally buy but I got a bright red one and its brill! Definitely worth the pricetag.

  9. Ooh lovely shoes... I really do have a leopard print problem. Especially shoes, they just go with everything. Maybe have a look at the Revlon Kissable Balm Stains, there is a bright orange one, they're balmy but they are very bright and stain your lips something chronic!

  10. the bag is amazing, I wouldn't mind a rucksack like that in my life! xx

  11. i bought the revlon lip butter in tutti fruiti which is a lovely bright orange colour. its really moisturising too x

  12. Wooop, I cannot believe it <3 <3 very much looking forward to receiving this! :D :D thank you! xx

  13. I NEEEED a bowler hat in my life!

  14. Oooh I love Hedonist, looks dreadful with my skin tone and eye colour though! Such a lovely colour xxx

  15. LOVE those shoes, just imagine them with burgundy skinnies!
