Now I know I usually post my wish lists on a Wednesday and at the start of each month, but I decided to change it up for a change. Change is good. 😛
I was kind of stumped for what I wanted to write for today and was thinking over and over about what I wanted to get out there and then I thought, “Hey! Killstar have brought out loads of amazing stuff. I wonder if my readers would like to see what I want to buy?” and here we are. 😛
The last time I made an order with Killstar I ended up sending everything back because all the stuff I ordered was just shit. I mentioned on my March wish list here about one of the dresses I was after. For mine and Dane’s anniversary I decided to order the dress so I could wear it out for a meal and you know what? I was so disappointed. The sizing was awful, it was far too short and just shocking. I sent it back and was more annoyed that I had to pay nearly £5 to send the fucking thing back! I also ordered a belt, which was one size but that one size felt like a size 1!
I was gutted to say the least and have decided moving forward that I will either only order when there are sales or free shipping/returns from Killstar themselves, or order from someone else who always offers free shipping AND returns… Aka Kate’s Clothing.
I would like to grab some nice dresses to wear for my holiday to Japan, so I’ll definitely be keeping my eye on the gorgeous pieces I’ll be showing off on my post today!
I hope you like everything I mention on this list, it will mostly be dresses to be honest with you, but I don’t have a problem with that! 😛

- Moonscape Skater Dress (link)
I love a good skater dress and this one is simplistic and something I could wear for both personal, as well as at work. It’s a cute peter pan style with the white collar and has a gorgeous stars, moons and star signs pattern all around the bottom of the dress. This is a decent price too for Killstar. It’s a dress I would definitely love to rock with loafers for work and my Dr Martens boots for personal.
- Cathedral Skater Dress (link)
This dress is gorgeous and shouts Wednesday Addams vibes and more! I still want the Wednesday dress from Killstar, but the only problem with that is I’m not sure if it would suit me. However, I feel like the Cathedral dress would definitely be for me considering it’s a skater dress and these flatter me the most. The only problem I’m having with this dress is it looks really short on the model, as well as people who I’ve seen buy and try it on on YouTube.
- Tartan Darklands Doll Dress (link)
I love a good bit of tartan in my life and I wear it weekly through my tartan trousers. This is a “doll dress” so whilst it looks similar to the skater dress style, I think it’s a bit different all the same. As of yet I’ve not tried one of Killstar’s doll dress styles so I’m worried how this would end up looking on me. Either way though this is cute and to jazz it up a bit I’d probably wear it with fishnet tights and loafer shoes! This would definitely look cute with my rainbow cardigan. 😛 I especially love the little moon on the left hand side. (FYI I actually ordered this dress before posting this up on my blog :P)

This is exactly the same as the tartan variant, but this is obviously black! The black dress has a PVC collar, whilst that tartan has a more fake leather collar. I have a dress similar to this one by Killstar already (Coven Cutie) so I feel like this would be a nicer variant that I could wear for work. The Coven Cutie dress has a zip on the chest with a crescent moon attached to the zip, which I LOVE but this dress isn’t appropriate for work sadly. I feel like this one would be. 🙂
- Amaya Skater Dress (link)
I mentioned this dress on my wish list at the start of the month and I STILL want it so badly! I’m not going to go over old ground, so I’m just going to copy and paste what I said on my August wish list… I love a good skater dress, especially one from Killstar. This is from one of their new collections, which represents Japanese school style fashions and manga/anime designs too. This is something I’d love to be able to wear for work but due to the style of the dress (mostly the back with the hanging part) I doubt that would be doable… At least not during the warmer months when I don’t need to wear a cardigan, jumper or my work fleece. I’ll be keeping my eyes on it though, this is something I’ll definitely be picking up in the future.
- Moonscape Long Sleeve Top (link)
The final item on this list is actually a top! I love everything about this top, the style, the material, the white collar on the neck and the wrists and even the moon design on the left hand side. It looks really comfortable too and this is something I would probably wear for work more than anything. I don’t think it’s something I would really wear for personal… I don’t think I have anything it would look good with. 😦
So that’s all the items I’m lusting after at the moment from Killstar. I would love to gradually pick up all of these pieces to add to my wardrobe, especially for work. I really do love wearing dresses for work as they’re comfortable and make me feel pretty!

Anyhoo I hope you’re all having a lovely Friday afternoon. I honestly cannot wait for bank holiday to start. I plan to do sweet FA. 😛
Until next time, take care all!

Love these dresses, I really like Killstar but I’ve kinda been put off ordering because of their return policy as I’m a weird size and need to try things on, so I’ll check out Kate’s Clothing maybe they’ll have the stuff I want xoxo
Yeah I’m the same with ordering too after my last experience with Killstar. Kate’s Clothing have free delivery over a certain amount but they also have free returns, which is amazing! I think the way Killstar deal with returns is pretty shocking.
I love these. I tend to stick with companies I’ve ordered from before when it comes to dresses especially, half the time they seem to be odd sizes and either don’t fit my chest or my hips or so much shorter than I expect but I am very tempted by some of these! I love the ones with the moon theme on, especially the Amaya dress. It’s got the Japanese school uniform look but less formal or uniformish if that makes sense, it’s just such a cute style to me!
I’m actually really sad that the dress I ordered (the tartan one) is really crap. 😦 The material is stiff and uncomfortable and it isn’t flattering at all! I’m sending it back, but I am so disappointed. 😦
Yeah I’m definitely going to keep trying with Killstar. I had luck the first 2 times I ordered so I’m going to keep trying! 😀
I love the look of these, especially the moonscape and tartan ones. I’m sorry the tartan one didn’t live up to expectations! 😦 It’s such a pretty dress. Also £5 for returns is a joke.
I KNOW! I was so pissed off when I had to pay the postage to send it back. :S Never again, never again. I wish more stores could stock Killstar in their stores like Blue Banana for example. It would be perfect!
Blue Banana would be a great stockist for them. I’m surprised they aren’t to be honest! It would be great to try things on in store.
They do on the website, but their stock doesn’t seem as up to date as it could/should be. I just want to be able to go into a store and try stuff on! I’ve only recently had issues with Killstar’s stuff and it is really disappointing. 😦
Oh I see! I prefer trying stuff on before I buy I too, especially with that returns policy. 😑
