Wednesday Wants

I had to succumb to the sunshine at the weekend and switch from my beloved tights back to leggings :( BUT the weather is getting back to normal and the tight wearing can recommence! Yay.  One thing I love about the influx of A/W clothing is the reappearance of velvet.  I adore velvet, the texture, the appearance - it just looks so opulent.  It's always in such lovely rich jewel colours too which make me very happy.  Topshop are usually my go to shop for a velvet dress and they haven't let me down this year.  I had to order both of these as soon as I laid eyes on them, so gorgeous!

 Dress: Topshop

How amazing is this?! Seriously if I could design my perfect velvet dress it would look like this.  Maybe minus the glitter spots and of course available in several colours!  This little beauty is arriving today, I hope it isn't a let down!

Dress: Topshop

I already have this dress in a few different colours but in a jersey fabric for my honeymoon and it fits so well.  I had difficulty choosing between this yummy wine colour and the blue version but the wine just edged it.  A few other dresses are screaming buy me this week too, a good influx of new stock!


The colour, the sleeves and the (p)leather collar sold this dress to me.  How amazing is that collar?!  Quite pricey at £64 but the details make it worth it.


How cute is this?!  I love everything about it from the colours to the little details to the actual fabric.  I really want need this dress!
