Wednesday Wants

I have been really busy this past week or so sewing up a storm in an attempt to make the dresses I want to take on my holiday.  My summer holiday I may add though it certainly doesn't feel like it right now, brrrrr.  Thankfully the forecast for next week looks so much better and if it stays that way we might even see the sun!  Looks like I am going to need to pack my sunglasses after all, will still be taking my new raincoat just in case though!  I asked for waterproof coat recommendations on twitter and the majority said Seasalt.  I checked and saw a shop in Leamington stocked them so paid them a visit and managed to snap up a bargain, I got this coat for half price!! I ended up buying a warmer one too and both of them together cost me a total of £140, I feel like a winner with that bargain.  Got to test them both out the last couple of days and I can vouch that they are very thankfully waterproof.

This week I have just been eyeballing all the pretty party dresses and boy are there some stunners.  I am absolutely loving the offerings from Chi Chi at the moment and couldn't decide between the next two dresses so went with both.   I love that they have so much choice for a knee length hem again this season and the silhouettes are just perfect.

Dress: Chi Chi

This Oasis number reminds me of a Liberty fabric I will eventually make mine.  I haven't been able to find it discounted yet and am off to London on the 12th so may have to part with my pennies and buy it in actual Liberty.  If you're going to be paying over £20 a metre you may as well get it from the actual store.  Needless to say I love the print of this Oasis dress and especially love the little lacy neckline.

Dress: Oasis

I don't usually like dresses that look like two separates but have made an exception for this Ted Baker dress mostly because I am swooning over the skirt fabric.  I would much prefer the dress was all made of this fabric especially when you see how much it is.  Seriously?!

Dress: Ted Baker

The Clarks x Orla collection launches tomorrow!!  I have already managed to get my hands on this pair and this pair from alternative retailers who got their stock two weeks early and I am totally in love.  The gold and navy pair are not glitter, they are a super sparkly leather - really hard to describe but totally lovely.  I have my eye on a couple of the Amelia colourways but will have to wait and see if I can pick them up in the sale.  I really want the gold pair of these leopard print shoes which should be available in the next month or so, and yep want the leopard print ones too - thankfully I can get both pairs for less than one pair of the Orlas so it is not quite as painful!



  1. chichi have got some stunning dresses at the moment. There's a floral one with a long train and off the shoulders neckline. i have nowhere to wear it to but it's £60 and perfection.

  5. The print on the Ted Baker dress is stunning. I think I'd prefer it if it was that print all the way up too but I guess you can't have it all! Hope you manage to get all your sewing done :)
