Wednesday Wants

I know it's still August but it already feels like Autumn has arrived.  I am dreaming of getting back into my black opaques (or navy if I can find some) and cannot stop swooning over the new arrivals.  I have moved towards navy in quite a big way over recent months and I cannot see that changing anytime soon especially with the arrival of quite possible the most beautiful shoes ever!  I am totally heart eyes emoji over them!!  With my gorgeous new shoes in mind I have put together a navy themed wishlist.

I am in love with this beautiful asos dress and I don't even mind the little 'bare' midriff bit too much.  It kinda feels like it's still covered and won't be that revealing and the rest of the dress is just divine.  

 Dress: asos

I'm going for a full on match with this navy and gold number from Chi Chi, I really love the Oriental style of the bodice.  It's something that is usually paired with a fitted split skirt which is not something I would usually go for.

 Dress: Chi Chi

I had a similar dress to this a few years ago and absolutely loved it, I always teamed it with either gold or red and felt a million dollars when wearing it.  No idea what happened to that but am loving this Coast number.  There are some lovely dresses on Coast right now, I really like this print dress too.

Dress: Coast

I have also started planning what I am going to be making this Autumn though I still have some summer sewing to get round to in time for my upcoming holiday.  Fingers crossed it has stopped raining by then.  It obviously features a lot of navy with splashes of yellow so I can still wear my yellow Orlas and I am trying to add as much metallic as I can without going overboard.  I love anything metallic and my new shoes have just fuelled this further!  After reading Char's blogpost I have been thinking more about what my makes would look like as a collection rather than the individual garments they are.  I never really look past the dress I am currently making unless a really awesome fabric arrives and I need to get that on the sewing table.  I loved watching the creative process behind Coast's AW15 collection, it's really interesting to see the process from conception through to the finished garments.  I think it is time I tried a trickier fabric than cotton and recreate my favourite navy lace dress and I might even add a bit of embellishment!



  1. Those shoes ARE gorgeous!! The dresses you chose are beautiful but for some reason, because of all my years of concerts wearing dark, smart dresses, I just don't get excited about buying plan, dark, winter dresses!!x

  2. All the dresses are so pretty! I wish I had somewhere to wear a dress like that! great post!
