Wednesday Wants

Happy hump day!  I am getting through the mid week with copious amounts of tea and a bit of window shopping, the count down to the weekend has begun! 

I love Orla Kiely's retro prints and while I have been getting my fix of her retro styling through her collaboration with Clarks I can't help but look longingly at her out of my budget dresses.  Her collaboration with People Tree hasn't really hit the spot for me before, yeah sure the prints have all been lovely and cute but not as retro as I would like.  This print changes that for me and if you're not into dresses (not sure we can be friends) then there is a cute top and trouser set which look awesome together.

 Dress: asos

I looked everywhere for some gold mid heels a few months ago.  Could I find a single pair? Nope.  Topshop have come to the rescue with this adorably pointy pair, also available in pink and black.  Now what was it I wanted to wear them with...

 Shoes: Topshop

The struggle to find a cute case for the iPhone 6 is real!  I have had to make do with a boring Apple one since I got my phone in September, it seems to have taken way longer for them to filter through than it did with the iPhone 5.  I really wanted one from Alphabet Bags so I asked when they were going to be available and they said no plans :(  I had my eye on this one but ya know £30 and not yet available in the UK (coming soon though!) so I was made up when I stumbled on this one in Paperchase and saw it was only £12 I made it mine.  If you have spotted any gorgeous iPhone 6 cases let me know, I'm always in the market for another one!

Phone Case: Paperchase

I've entered a Twitter selfie competition hosted by into the blue this week, the idea of it is to try something new and be more adventurous which worked really well for me last year when I took the plunge and learned how to sew.  I only picked two small things, wear lipstick in the day and a new scent, as I am still trying to decide on the big thing for 2015.  I don't expect it to be as life changing as learning to sew (I know that sounds silly but it really has had a massive impact on me and my life) but I want to try and step out of my comfort zone every now and then to see what happens.  Have you got any plans to try something new this year? If so please share, I might be up for joining you!



  1. I had just read this before checking in on ModCloth's new arrivals.
    I laughed upon seeing this:

    1. Haha! I actually prefer that one, sleeves!

  2. That dress is gorgeous! I'm a lipstick fan, you can't go wrong with the Max Factor Colour Elixir ones :)
