I'm housebound today finishing off some Uni work before I start again at the end of this month. I can't help but browse all the websites at the moment and spy all the new Autumn/ Winter collections coming in. There's just so much stuff I want and these Lusting After posts help me to collect everything together in one place and see what goes with what.
First up, I'm in desperate need of some new boots so as always I've spotted a few pairs in Zara that I like. My absolute favourite are these Zara neoprene and patent black boots which I've been lusting after for quite some time now! I love the neoprene around the ankle, they do have a similar pair like this in Topshop but with a much larger heel. I also love these Zara zip boots which are more for the daytime and have a slight grunge feel to them. The heel height is perfect as I'm not great in huge heels during the day, I just wish they weren't £79.99! For a cheaper alternative, I actually quite like these Missguided monochrome chunky boots which recently came onto the website. I love shoes with a white sole at the moment, I think they really stand out and for £34.99 they're quite the bargain.
I'm looking for some long-sleeve dresses at the moment to layer under gilets now the weather is colder. I adore this Zara jacquard dress, the polo neck makes the style chic and smart and it would be the perfect Winter warmer. I've also got my eye on this H&M nude knitted dress as it would be lovely layered under a beige fur gilet with a statement handbag. I also think it would look great layered underneath this Topshop Unique cream biker jacket which is probably the nicest jacket I will see all season! I loved the Topshop Unique A/W '13 collection when it debuted at fashion week and there's so many pieces I want. I also love the Topshop Unique sequin top, I think the pale pink sequins would glisten so beautifully in the Winter. The loose fitting block shape also gives it quite a casual feel so it could be worn during the day with black jeans or dressed up for the evening.
River Island has really stepped up it's game recently in my eyes, despite the awful new Rihanna collection! I really like this beige racer style top with the gold plated neckline. I think this would look lovely paired with smart jeans and boots or could be dressed up for the evening with smart city shorts and a clutch. I absolutely love this Asos pink fluffy shoulder bag, it's so bright and would be great for a night out. I'm not sure I would buy it for £45 but if it ever enters the sale I'll snap it up. I also think this River Island faux fur make-up bag will be great for the upcoming Winter weather and for only £15 I can't resist picking it up next time I'm in the store.
Lastly, I need a good new day bag for the Winter season and whilst browsing online I spotted this Asos animal handbag for £75. I do think that's quite expensive for Asos but if it's a bag I will use all the time then I'm willing to spend a little more. I also love this Marc by Marc Jacobs rose gold bangle which is available from the Selfridge's website. I own quite a few pieces of Marc by Marc Jacobs jewellery and this would be a lovely addition to my collection. I tend to only wear gold or rose gold pieces as silver doesn't suite my skin tone so this simplistic bangle would be perfect for everyday wear.
