Wednesday Wants

I have gone monochrome crazy!  It started with a polka dot shirt, then a star print skirt caught my eye and now I want everything black and white.  I adore spots and stripes and combining them together in an outfit is my favourite past time that doesn't happen often enough.  Apparently monochrome is a trend for SS13 which would explain why there are lots of goodies for me to gaze lustfully at.

I love this asos number, the shape of the dress looks really similar to this one which is a favourite of mine.  The unusual print gets a big thumbs up from me too!

 Dress: asos

I haven't wanted anything Motel for a long time but this little beauty has changed all that!  I am not a Motel kinda girl, I don't have the figure for bodycon (HA!) and most of the pretty skater dresses I have like have had cut outs that just wouldn't work on me.  This is lush! 

 Dress: Motel @ asos

I love my sleeveless polka dot dress but know it would get way more wear if it had sleeves.  Boohoo have come to my rescue with this gem.  Would definitely want to dig out my black and white stripy clutch bag to compliment this! 

 Dress: Boohoo

I am not sure I can pull these shoes off with any of the above!  I would love to be able to rock them and think they have a retro vibe to them but know I would feel like a bit of a wally and save them for all black outfits.  What a waste.
Ankle Boots: Chie Mihara @ Spartoo

I'd more likely team them with a pair of black Chelsea boots like these lovelies.  I am sure I read somewhere that Cuban heels are all the rage, two trends in one week.  Get me!
 Ladies Boots: Duo Boots

I want to finish this wishlist with a little question for you... what is the difference between polka dots and spots?  When do spots become polka dots?



  1. I NEED that Motel dress, I love it! I'm like you, I generally steer away from Motel as I imagine it's all super short bodycon dresses but that is a beauty, such a lovely shape! xo

  3. You really can't beat a good helping of monochrome in your wardrobe! I love the BooHoo and Jigsaw dresses, they're gorgeous! I feel like I need some more monochrome in my life, most of my black/white clothes are for work and they really take the fun out of it!

  4. Oh that shift dress is lovely - kinda Addams family, in a good way?

  5. That BooHoo dress is gorgeous! Xo

  6. It is so refreshing to see that I am not the only one who thinks that Motel dresses are for the stick-skinny girls. ;) I love your choices - as always - nothing beats good skater dress! X

  7. I badly want the Motel one! I think if it's still there next month it will be mine :P xx

  8. That polka dot dress is beautiful, definitely one for the wishlist!

  9. I love the motel dress, I've been looking at in on ASOS. No idea what the difference between polka dots and spots is but I think polka dot might mean the spots are different colours...


I love comments, thank you xx
