Wednesday Wants

I feel a bit like I am waiting for the sales to hurry up and be over so the shops will get some new stock in... there really isn't much out there I want at the moment which is really strange for this time of the year when I usually want to buy EVERYTHING!!  I have spotted a few little gems though...

Dress: Oasis

Dress: Boohoo

Dress: Missguided

I am loving the wine colour that is everywhere again this winter along with the fact that I can actually buy dresses with sleeves!! Amazing.  

In case you didn't know the River Island sale starts exclusively online today.  Does anyone know when the Topshop sale starts this year? There are a few over priced bits of knitwear that I am hoping to pick up with a nice bit of discount!!  What are you hoping to get from the sales this year?

I'm Back!!

Hey you guys!! I am back and with an outfit post... AND I'M NOT WEARING A DRESS!! shocker.  I had an amazing wedding and an idyllic honeymoon and am now getting into the Christmas spirit. Luckily we managed to get almost all of our Christmas shopping done on Saturday and I managed to pick up a few things for myself, it had to be done after three weeks of no shopping ;)  Sorry for the rushed photos but I couldn't wait to actually blog again and have been rushed off my feet since we got home.  I will get round to blogging the dress and some general wedding photos soon I promise.

 Jumper: Topshop
 Skirt: Primark
Shoes: Office

It feels so good to be back and have a spare 10 minutes for blogging, I really have missed it.  Are you all ready for Christmas? Show me what you're going to be wearing over the festive season :)

Let's Talk About Coats!

Unusually for me I have had difficulty finding the perfect winter coat this year.  I normally spot the perfect coat as soon as they hit the shops and snap it up right there and look lovingly at it for a few weeks til it's finally cold enough for me to wear it.  I made my move yesterday and this is what I have gone for:

I didn't think much of this when I first saw it online but they had a return in my local Miss S and I fell in love.  Wasn't my size so when I found they only had one left online and in my size I knew it was meant to be!!  Can't wait for it to arrive :)  

My other contenders were...

Coat: Warehouse
Absolutely adore the colour of this one but was put off by the belt and the massive pockets.

Everything is perfect about this apart from the length, just too long for me.  Would be my dream coat if only it was shorter/not so expensive to have it taken up!

Coat: Dahlia
This was nearly mine but the contrast detailing on the Miss S coat stole my heart!

Coat: Topshop
This only came online yesterday and hasn't actually been available to buy (think they have the price wrong, a similar one is £250!!) but it's beautiful and if it does end up being stocked at £98 I think I will have to make it mine. 

Have you bought your winter coat yet?  What did you go for?

The Cosmo Blog Awards 2011

Thank you so so much to everyone who took the time and voted for Where Are My Knees!  I am sure you've all read our tweets by now but in case you missed them we were highly commended (i.e. we came second!!)  Totally over the moon with the result and I guess that means we can say we write an award winning blog now :)  The full list of winners can be found here.  I am a totally crap blogger and took a total of one photo during the whole event so have stolen photos from various places...

I'm like a rabbit in headlights but you get to see my whole outfit in this one. I am wearing an old Topshop dress that I LOVE, with a boohoo jacket, Dorothy Perkins heels and the red River Island clutch I searched high and low for.  I felt like a million dollars :)

Engagement Photos

Hello my lovelies.  My life is really hectic right now, it's only about a month til I get married!!  Eeeekkk where as the time gone?!  I still have a fair bit of DIY to finish before the big day which is filling every spare moment between work, dress fittings, hen nights and attending some amazing events which I am so incredibly excited about!

Tomorrow night I am going to the cosmo blog awards with two of the other where are my knees writers Sarah and Gemma, I am sure we will all be tweeting like crazy whilst at the event so make sure you keep an eye out in case we actually win or something silly like that... how amazing would that be?!

Luckily I was able to find the time to have some engagement photos taken.  Both the boyf and I hate being in front of the camera.  I feel very awkward and forced so it was important to me to meet our wedding photographer before hand so she could work out how on earth she was going to get some good photos of us on the day.  Did I also mention that I HATE PDA?! Kinda hard to avoid on your wedding day! haha.  Thankfully Sassy is one talented lady and I can actually say that I enjoyed having my photo taken for the first time ever.  I love the way they have turned out especially since the boyf has trimmed down the tops of my arms for me... just need to get this body in real life now ;)  The dress I am wearing is from Topshop and even though it's from the tall range it's the perfect length on me.

Just lovely!  I think the asos is my favourite, I love the black band round the waist, makes it look tiny.  What have you guys been coveting this week?

Wednesday Wants

A wishlist with a difference this week... I can't get enough of leopard print at the moment and there's so many amazing pieces that I just had to share with you lot!

 Dress: asos

 Boots: asos

Clutch: Warehouse

 Coat: New Look

 Shoes: Topshop

Just gorgeous yeah?! I love the asos dress but am a bit worried that being made of fake fur it would look a bit like a fancy dress costume. BUT IT'S SO LOVELY!  I want them all and will have to resist the urge to wear them all together...
