Wednesday Wants

Whilst I do love a quirky print simple staples make up the basis of my wardrobe.  I am dotty for spots, stripes, checks and sweeter than sweet gingham.  I am currently dreaming of a yellow chunky gingham cotton which I will be hunting down when I go fabric shopping at the weekend.  I've been looking for a yellow gingham dress since falling for yellow last summer but thanks to Kristabel my longing has deepened. Kristabel gives me such dress envy!  Seeing sneak peeks of upcoming collections such as the chunky gingham beauties from Laura Ashley and this beautiful Tara Starlet skirt is making me impatient to get my hands on all the gingham!  Not much has filtered on to the high street in the form of dresses yet but it's coming! In the mean time I am making do with my two favourite gingham dresses, perfection!

Why do you keep doing this to me Modcloth?! Having to pay import duties really does suck but it is not stopping this dress taking the top spot on my wishlist.  So adorable!  Please open a UK warehouse this year :)

Dress: Modcloth

Not all gingham needs to be pastel or black and white as this gorgeous Antipodium dress shows.  I have had this in my saved items waiting for it to go in to the sale but alas it is still full price.  I usually remove belts from dresses but think this one finishes the dress off perfectly.  I love how full skirted it is and the length is just right.  It also comes in black and white if that's more your thing.

This little tie front shirt is currently on its way to me.  I am thinking it will be perfect with a full skirt for summer or even instead of a cardi over a little strappy dress.  It will also look amazing with a pair of cigarette pants not that you'll ever see me in a pair of them! 

 Shirt: Topshop

What prints are you drawn to right now?



  1. I think the Antipodium dress would look so good on you! Please tell me you're going to get it :) xx

  2. Aww, get the middle one and make the top one. That should be easy!!

  3. sob, really want the Antipodium one. Damn my love of food and lack of money!

  4. I love that Antipodium dress too! Will be stalking it until the bitter end, I managed to get another one from the Urban sale for £49! Fingers crossed it looks decent!


I love comments, thank you xx
