WANT WANT WANT,NEED NEED NEED!
It’s only human for us to lust over things, right? Well atlases that’s what I try to tell myself anyway! Recently I’ve been browsing more than I’ve been buying, which is a good thing as I’m really trying to save my money this year so that I can travel and enjoy time during the Summer! However that doesn’t mean a girl can’t treat herself every now and again, am I right ladies? Since it’s pay day for the majority, a lust list seemed pretty appropriate, however maybe not for your bank accounts…
Recently I’ve been browsing through this amazing little website called shopspring.com it’s basically like a little hub of lustfulness! It’s basically an online gateway store, a collection of beautiful things you can buy if you will, from the high end to the high street this website pretty much has it all, whether it be beauty, fashion or accessories, Shop Spring has got you covered!

They’ve also recently launched their accessories selection on their website, so inevitably I ended up browsing through tons of bags! From the high end to the high street, Shop Spring pretty much has it all, whether it be beauty fashion or accessories!

So, what have I been lusting over online…
TREAT YO’ SELF WITH SHOPSPRING.COM
SUNO RAISED FLORAL SILK DRESS
These are some of the items I’ve been lusting over on Shopspring.com! How amazing are these items! The dress is from Suno and is completely my style! I love the mix of floral embroidery with the mix of gothic elegance with the lace overlay! Dresses like this are just so wearable. You don’t need much else to dress this outfit up, a cute little clutch bag and some simple heels and you’re pretty much sorted for an evening out! As the embroidery is a mix of different colours, you can mix the outfit up by adding different coloured accessories! Try some red heels and a clutch bag to make the outfit looks even more interesting!
ELIZABETH & JAMES CYNNIE NANO SHEARING AND LEATHER CROSS BODY BAG
The next thing I’ve been lusting over is this gorgeous Elizabeth & James Hangbag! Elizabeth & James is a clothing and fragrance company run by my 90’s idols Ashley & Mary-Kate Olsen! The Olsen twins are my goals when it comes to how they dress and style themselves, they really rock the whole soft, girl grunge style and I think this bag represents that style perfectly! Fur bags are really on trend at the minute and they do an amazing job at adding a point of interest to a basic outfit! It comes in both white and black, obviously I had to opt for the black version! The bag is the perfect size for everyday and for a night out! Big enough to store all of the essentials like your phone, keys, purse and of course a lipstick! A massive lust! Making me really want to save up!
SMASHBOX #SHAPEMATTERS PALETTE
This palette is definitely something that I’m going to be saving up for so I can have it for the Summer time! It’s essentially 3 palettes in one. It includes contouring and highlight shades, so you can get those cheekbones no matter where you are! These shades can also be used to create neutral eye looks for both day and night! It also has a few purple eyeshadows thrown into the mix, which I love as I’ve really been getting into purple eyeshadows recently and mixing them with my cool toned neutrals! So to have warm and cool neutrals AND a matte and a shimmery purple all in the one compact palette is perfect for me! And it comes with a double ended makeup brush! What more could you want really?
No wishlist would be complete without some hughstreet online store lusting! I absolutely love shopping online as I find that the things I like are never usually in store, or they’re sold out or they don’t have my size, so online shopping is where it’s at! I don’t think a day goes by where I’m not browsing through the pages of Asos or Topshop and mentally taking note on the items that I like, could this be a shopping obsession, probably. Do I care, no, not at all – but my bank account does..
ASOS DUNE HEELS
I’ve really been loving this style of shoe recently! After NYE and the Christmas party season, I’ve gradually collected a fair amount of party wear, and shoes have recently became an obsession, so obviously I’ve been browsing through the pages of Asos at shoes! Asos is like a different dimension, in which I go to each evening to mindlessly add things I don’t really need to my basket for my own enjoyment! I find this style of shoe so classy,elegant and timeless, so I think they’re a must buy when payday arrives!
TOPSHOP PETITE PINAFORE DRESS
I love Topshop for the fact that they occasionally have some really great pieces in their Petite range! Everyone who knows me will know that I love pinafore dresses and dungarees – Who say’s I can’t be 20 and dress like I’m 12? I love a bit of layering and I think that pinafore dresses are perfect for that, you can layer with shirt, jumpers, tishirt and even mesh and lace bodies and your outfit instantly looks as though you’ve made an effort, perfect!
TOPSHOP 3 STRAP FLATS
I’ve been on the hunt recently for some simple flats for casual wear! I have a stupid amount of loafers so I wanted something a bit different and girly! These 3 strap flats remind me of the flats that the likes of Valentino would sell, however these are a lot more simplistic and don’t damage your bank too much! Perfect to wear with tights and jeans when I want to be super casual and chilled whether I’m chilling out or at uni!
TOPSHOP PETITE MONOCHROME JUMPER
No lust list would be complete without a bit of monochrome loving! I think jumpers like this are perfect for days at uni, when you want something that’s going to keep you warm, however you want something that looks a bit interesting and cool. Pair this with black denim dungarees or a pair of vintage wash mom jeans and you’ve nailed the casual wear! The good thing about monochrome is that you literally cannot go wrong with it either! Simple styling made even easier!
LEVI’S @ URBANOUTFITTERS VINTAGE DENIM JACKET
Being honest, I already own a Levi’s denim jacket, that’s actually vintage – onlike when urban outfitters say something is ‘vintage’ but really it’s just vintage style! However my Levi’s jacket is so similar to this, I saw this and way like ‘Heeeyyy’ so I thought I would include it anyway, as by the time Spring/Summer comes, denim jackets are going to be flying off the shelves, and I think this one if perfect! You can style denim jackets in so many different ways, it just gives any outfit a really laid back, grunge twist – Which is good for every season, but especially Spring/Summer, especially if you’re like me and you’re not into girly florals and bright colours.
