Wish List Friday – Killstar

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. πŸ˜›

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. πŸ˜›

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 Β£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! πŸ˜›

All images taken from the Killstar website.

  • 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. πŸ˜› 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)

  • Darklands Doll Dress (link)

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. πŸ™‚

  • 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!

Until next time, take care all!

June Wish List ’19

It’s June! The month of lots of spending due to mine and Dane’s anniversaries! However whilst this year won’t be completely different, it will be all the same. We won’t be spending as much money on one another as we usually do due to the fact we have booked Japan so we’re saving up to spend monies over there!

This means I would like to go on some spending bans as I would much prefer to have monies for when I go to Japan so I don’t feel like I can’t enjoy myself, you know?

Granted spending ban or not, I will always post my monthly wish list posts, as I love doing them so much! I can imagine this month being really hard to do as I can’t think of anything I actually want apart from maybe the odd item or two… We shall see anyway! πŸ˜›

  • Converse x Feng Chen Wang ERX 260 Mid (link)

I really want these high top trainers… Like really badly want them! I think if it wasn’t for booking Japan last week, I’d have probably ordered these by now. I would especially love to have these for Japan though as they look amazing! Maybe I’ll treat myself to them, or even hint to Dane for them as a partial anniversary present… πŸ˜› I’m going to Manchester next week so I’ll definitely be keeping my eye out for any stores that MIGHT be selling there – although they do just look to be an online exclusive with Converse…

  • Persona Q2 on Nintendo 3DS (link)

I am beyond excited for this game to come out! Not going to lie, I haven’t actually played Persona Q, the first in this game series. I don’t know if I really need to play that one to enable me to play Q2 but either way I don’t care. The Persona 5 gang are in this game and that in itself is enough for me. From what I’ve seen and read, this is a dungeon crawler based game where you can pick a team from any of the Persona games (3, 4 or 5) and play the game pretty much. This comes out today – which I’m really excited for!

  • Renegade Bubble Tea Board Game (link)

This was a game I discovered at UK Games Expo last weekend and one that I regret not picking up in all fairness with you. I regret not buying this so badly and even regret not sitting down to play the game. We wanted to make sure we looked everywhere before buying things, hence why I didn’t end up getting it in the end. I was shown how it played however and it looks like a great little party game for all ages! As a bubble tea fan this is such a novelty game too and I just feel like it would be a cute game to own. As soon as I can, I’ll be picking up this game to add to mine and Dane’s growing collection.

  • Persona 5 Morgana Pop! Vinyl Figure (link)

I know I’ve mentioned this Pop on my blog before within my monthly wish list, but I’m mentioning it again this month because it’s ACTUALLY meant to be coming out this month! I’ll be shocked if it actually does and will hold my breath until that day comes. I really want this figure though. It’s adorable and I know it’ll be gorgeous to have on my fireplace in the living room, or maybe even my manga bookshelf.

  • Ines Dreamer Shop D20 Pink Choker Necklace (link)

I’ve been after a new choker for a while now, as whilst I do love wearing my fox necklace that my friend Sophie bought me I do like something a little geeky instead sometimes. I love the 90’s tattoo chokers and have done since they came out back in the day. Since getting into D&D I’ve been after a choker style necklace with a D20 on it. I haven’t been able to find one for a while, but FINALLY I found one on Etsy recently and after I’ve written this post, I plan to order it. πŸ˜› There’s one left so why not!

  • Illustrator Jake Eeveelutions Sweater from Kickstarter (link)

This item isn’t actually out to buy and was part of a Kickstarter recently held by Illustrator Jake, who I’ve mentioned on my blog before in a review of their Retsuko pin badge (which I’ll link here). I of course backed it and opted for the Eeveelutions sweater design. I’m actually really excited for the design to come out and be posted to me, especially if it’s this month! Sweater weather in the summer isn’t exactly a done thing here in the UK, but it bloody can be if it’s cool enough. πŸ˜›

So those are my wish list items for this month! In all honesty I spent quite a bit of money at the UK Games Expo over the weekend so I doubt very much I’ll buy much from this list this month.

In all honesty I do want to do my spending ban. Every time I go to buy an item I know I could get when in Japan, I’m going to just leave it etc.

What items do you guys have on your wish lists this month? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below!

Until next time all, take care and I hope you’ve had a lovely week so far. πŸ™‚

Wish List Wednesday – Killstar

If there is one brand I have really come to love over the past couple of months, it’s definitely Killstar! I’ve loved Killstar for almost 3 years in all fairness but I feel like only of late have I made more purchases with them. Throughout 2019 I’d love to buy even more pieces from them as I love wearing the two dresses I picked up in the sales (which you can see here) for both work, as well as in my own time after work and for my weekends off. πŸ˜€

For now though I’m going to show you guys what items Id love to pick up from Killstar soon! πŸ˜€ There will be a mixture of items from the website, obviously including clothing as well as footwear and home.

  • Wednesday Addams Dress – (link)

This is a dress I’ve wanted for years and STILL I haven’t bought it yet, which sucks. 😦 I actually bought it second hand off of someone via Depop, but I ended up being scammed. Meh. So I am still on the hunt for this dress! When my size is back in stock on the store I may just take the plunge and order it. I’m sick of not having it now and would love to wear it for work, as well as meals out with Dane and friends! Can never say no to looking like Wednesdays Addams. πŸ˜›

  • Hellda Knit Dress – (link)

This is a dress I wanted for a while like the Wednesday Addams dress, but the more I saw it in my wish list on the website, the less I wanted it. I thought it wouldn’t suit me, or that I already had something like it, which I doubt would be the case. So when I saw the gorgeous TheFodFairy over on YouTube showing it off on one of her latest videos, I KNEW I had to re add it to my wish list! I really want it for work in the colder weather! I do have a knitted dress just like this one, but I’ve owned it for over 5 years now so I need a much needed replacement.

  • Luna High Tops – (link)

If there is one thing I DON’T NEED it’s shoes. I would love a new pair of high tops as my white DC ones have seen better days and I’ve owned them for about 10 years now. How they’re still in one piece I don’t know! I’m not quite sure what it is I love about these high tops, other than everything! I feel like they’re an awesome cross between Vans and Dr Martens, which are two of my favourite brands. I’d love some of these to wear with dresses as well as skinny fit black jeans.

  • Starmap Comforter Set – (link)

I haven’t long ago discovered that this bed set exists and now I have, I REALLY want it! I have seen the price though and it hurts my soul just a little. πŸ˜› It’s definitely a set I’m going to keep my eye on though as I really love the look of it. It’s called a comforter set because it’s really soft and fluffy, which would make it perfect for during the cold winter months! I wish it wasn’t like this though all the same, as I’d want to use this bedding all year around, of course this wouldn’t be doable during the warm summer months. As I mentioned, this isn’t cheap and although I love Killstar, Β£90 for some bedding is rather daft…

  • Wonka Knit Sweater – (link)

Finally we have another piece of clothing and alas the last thing on this wish list! The first item I bought from Killstar was a striped jumper, which I still own and wear to this day! It’s actually the jumper I wore in the photos that TV Trev took of me (which you can see in this post). It’s a nice oversized jumper that can be worn on its own with thick leggings or some jeans. I love to wear them when relaxing with friends as well as my weekends off work. They have quite a few different colour schemes for this jumper, but I rather love the look of the purple one to be fair! I’d love to get all the different colour versions though. πŸ˜›

If there is ever a time where you finally decide to take the plunge and make a first order with Killstar, then feel free to use my unique code and save yourself 5% off your first order! πŸ˜€

What do you think of the brand Killstar and the items I’ve popped onto my wish list this evening? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below!

I do apologise if this is a rather short post, but I wanted to get a wish list Wednesday post up today and the first brand that came to mind to feature on here today were Killstar.

I know my blog has been a bit on the bland side lately, I’ll be talking about this on Saturday. πŸ™‚

Until next time, take care all and I hope you’re having a lovely week so far!

29th Birthday Wish List

Well, it’s my last year in my 20’s after tomorrow and I don’t know how I feel about it yet, for various reasons. I guess when you have your birthday right after the New Year has started, you already feel like you need to make sure the year goes off with a bang, or you’ll just feel shit. This being said I don’t want to do a whole lot for my 29th… Why would I? My 30th is being saved up for all the fun times. πŸ˜›

I do have plans to go to Ghetto Golf with Dane and some friends for my birthday, which I’m excited for. It’ll be something nice and chill to do and I’m sure me and Dane will go for a meal afterwards too.

But for now before everything kicks off over the weekend, I thought I’d bring a post early this morning about items on my 29th birthday wish list. I doubt very much I have any of these things for my birthday and I’m fine with that. I honestly struggled to get this list together, but eventually I came up with loads of ideas. These will probably end up becoming gifts for myself in all honesty. πŸ˜›

See, this is the problem when you have your birthday right after Christmas. Making lists like this is pretty hard to do. πŸ˜›

But oh well, it’s only a wish list so let’s get on with it!

  • Killstar Trash Talk Jeans – (link)

These jeans are amazing and a style I’ve been after for the longest time! I probably would have ordered them in the sales but I was a tad on the worried side about sizing… I’d want to pick up the largest size possible to ensure that they fit me. Meh I don’t know, I’ll have a think about picking these up. If any stores have them in stock I would be there in a heartbeat to go and try them on!

  • Vans Checkerboard Classic Slip-On Shoes in Black and White – (link)

A shoe brand I have loved for over 10 years now is Vans. I bought my first pair when I was 16 and shortly after that I bought a pair of checkerboard ones in black and red. I remember seeing them online, but I couldn’t find them anywhere in Birmingham town centre. Eventually I found them in the Oasis Market and have loved them since then. Sadly the past few years they’ve been unwearable. They’re just that old. I don’t really need a new pair of Vans, but I would like an upgrade. I remember always wanting a pair of these when I was 15, so I’ll finally pick some up for myself tomorrow. πŸ˜›

  • Killstar Hades Skater Dress – (link)

This was a dress I planned on ordering in the sales, but I left it… Reason being that I wanted clothes that would be more appropriate for general and for work… Of course this wasn’t good for the latter! This is something I’d definitely love to pick up in the future as it looks so different! This being said, I think I’d be wary of picking it up in case it didn’t suit me. We’ll see what sales hold for it in the future!

  • Persona 4 Manga Vol. 2, 3 and 4 – (link), (link) and (link)

My best friend Gabriella bought me Vol. 1 of this manga for my Christmas/birthday last year and I’m so glad she did as I’ve honestly fallen in love with the manga and keep craving to read more! I can never find this in stores to buy on 3 for 2 offers you find in Forbidden Planet’s. I have quite a bit of manga I need to catch up on at the moment, so I intend to have a good reading session over the weekend and when I have spare cash, I’ll continue to read Persona 4!

  • Nintendo Switch Taiko No Tatsujin Collectors Edition Game – (link)

This is something that I actually thought Dane might have bought me for Christmas and a small fraction thought he may have for my birthday too, but I highly doubt the latter is the case now. It’s not cheap, as you’ll see if you follow the link… It’s almost Β£100… OUCH! I tried the demo of this game and rather liked how it played, as well as the look of it. I’d want to play it on the drum however, as I feel like it would make it more fun to play! Even if I don’t get this collectors edition in future, I definitely want to pick up the game! πŸ˜€

  • Killstar Cursula Velvet Flats – (link)

Finally we have some more shoes. I really want to invest in a nice pair of flat shoes for work and general and although I’d seen a few I rather like the look of, I REALLY love these! They’re a velvet look to them with mermaid scales etched in. These would be great to have for work throughout every season, and especially nights out for drinks as they’re smart casual. They’re not cheap however, so I’d wait for sales again.

So as short as this wish list is, that’s all the items on my 29th birthday wish list! I would have added a Nendoroid but I honestly can’t think of any that I would have received… Is that weird? xD

Even a monthly wish list this month would have been super boring! By the way, those will resume as normal on the 3rd February.

How’s 2019 going for you so far? Make sure to let me know in the comments!

Until next time all, take care and I hope you have a lovely weekend.

Wish List Wednesday – Rainbow Fashion Collab Post!

Today’s wish list Wednesday is such an exciting one and it’s for one reason in particular! This is a collab post with the one and only wonderful blogger, Estelle over at Estellosaurus.

If there is one rainbow queen who I know it is her! I love her outfit posts and I always end up going to look at one piece of clothing she’s wearing in said post online.

It’s because of her that I recently bought myself a new rainbow cardigan and she’ll probably be the cause for many more rainbow purchases… She’s definitely a bad influence. πŸ˜›

So we decided to work together to do a collab post and I have been so excited to get it written down! We decided that I would do a wish list Wednesday about rainbow fashion pieces I want and Estelle is going to talk about the rainbow fashion pieces she owns. I would have done the same as Estelle, but sadly I only own two items, which are both my amazing rainbow cardigans! πŸ˜€

So without further ado, bring on the rainbow goodies!

  • Monki Rainbow Stripe Tee – (link)

I’ve had my eye on picking up a rainbow stripe tee from Monki for AGES but every time I’ve had a look at one it’s either sold out completely or sold out in my size! When I recently visited Bristol with Dane I had a look in the Monki shop inside Cabot Circus and got super excited! Sadly the rainbow stripe tee wasn’t in my size and it looks really cropped too, which sucked. I’m going to keep the hope alive though for a nice striped rainbow tee like this one!

  • Monki Crew Neck Rainbow Jumper – (link)

This jumper really does remind me of the one that Lazy Oaf brought out and it looks AMAZING! I would love this jumper to rock to work on Monday’s and Friday’s throughout the colder months, as well as over weekends with friends or lazy days in with Dane. I especially love that the sleeves are a little tighter, because although I love baggy sleeves that can hide my hands, it can be a bit of a pain when working. My only issue with this jumper is that it looks cropped… So I’d want to see what it looks like in the Bristol Monki store before buying!

  • Boohoo Rainbow Stripe T-Shirt Dress – (link)

I’ve been after some more t-shirt dresses for a while to wear with my normal black leggings, as well as with my Black Milk Clothing leggings and whilst I’m on a massive rainbow love and high, this top would be awesome to wear with my black leggings all casual and such! I wouldn’t be able to wear this for work, it would purely be for when I can’t be arsed to dress up and want to be comfortable. I could imagine itΒ  being a great t-shirt dress to wear on sick days too. πŸ˜›

  • Rocks N Rainbows Ringer Tee – (link)

This is a really cute tee but I wish it was in the UK! I know you can order from the Dolls Kill site and get them sent to the UK, but you know… πŸ˜› ANYWAY! This isn’t technically a rainbow item, but it has a rainbow on it so that counts… Right? πŸ˜› I really love this tee for both work and casual because it’ll just go and work with anything and everything! I especially love the red around the collar and sleeves, it’s a really nice touch and works really well! It also isn’t a bad price either, which I’m always happy with. πŸ˜›

  • Club Exx Dark Rainbow Anodized Boots – (link)

Oh man I just had to add these boots to this list! I know they’re not shouting in your face that they’re rainbow, but fuck me are these sexy boots! I love a good pair of Dr Martens boots and live in them throughout autumn and winter, but these are just something else. To me my Docs are my, “Don’t piss me off…” boots, whereas these would be, “Don’t fuck with me!” boots. You know what I mean? They’d just be awesome to wear throughout the autumn months and possibly spring too.

  • Lazy Oaf Pastel Stripe Rainbow Cardigan

This is a cardigan I have been lusting after for the longest time, but these days it’s a bit of a struggle to find unless you remortgage your house first! It was the original Lazy Oaf rainbow bored cardigan that kick started everyone off on the rainbow cardigan craze and I can honestly understand why! Since then, everyone has been either lusting after that cardigan, the one I’m talking about or any others for that matter! I still want this one and as soon as I find it for a decent price, it WILL be mine! I love wearing cardigans for work, as well as in general and this is such a muted and gorgeous colour that I just need it in my life! HEY if you’re selling one and want a decent price for it, DROP ME A COMMENT ASAP! xD

  • Run & Fly Unisex Rainbow Jumper – (link)

Finally we have another jumper on this list and it’s the last thing I’ll be talking about today. This is actually a unisex product and honestly I LOVE unisex and men’s clothing, it’s always so much more comfortable than women’s. This is such a vintage looking jumper and I feel like it’s something you’d have seen someone wear in the 60’s or 70’s. Or even something from the 90’s that someones picked up in a charity shop. This would be super cozy to wear throughout the autumn and winter months, both at work as well as over the weekends for chilly evenings out. It isn’t cheap at Β£30.00 but I would like to pick it up in the near future.

So those are all my rainbow goodies for my wish list Wednesday! I’m not a massive rainbow magpie, but I do love me some signature rainbow pieces!

I just want to say a massive THANK YOU to Estelle for agreeing to do this rainbow themed collaboration with me! Make sure to head over to her blog to check out what she’s written! I posted her link at the start of this post, but I’ll pop it here too.

Please make sure to go and give Estelle some love, not only is she an amazing and adorable blogger, but she’s also an absolute gem and lovely to talk to. I love that I’ve met her through blogging as she’s definitely one of my favourite bloggers and become a very good blogging friend in such a short period of time.

Anyhoo, I’m off for the day! I hope you all have a lovely day and until next time, take care all!

May Wish List ’18

Oh man another month, another wish list! Has to be said, how rotten is the weather?! I’m currently in bed writing this post on a spontaneous day off work (can’t complain at that, eh? :P) and watching the rain out of the window. I’ve had to pop out this morning to have some bloods taken for tests, so now I’m home with a big cup of coffee and listening to a podcast whilst I do blog work!

I need to be good this month to be honest, if anything I’ll probably just buy myself some games and that is it! If I end up being naughty and buying things, then so help me. πŸ˜›

  • Eevee Dangling Tail Enamel Pin by ToasterKiwi – (link)

If there is a new “hobbie” I have taken up since leaving my old job, it’s collecting pin badges/enamel pins! I have a nice handful of them now and wear different ones weekly, sometimes daily at work, as well as weekends off work. I stumbled across this cute little Eevee pin on Etsy during April and I did go to order it, but left out and decided to be good. It would just be so adorable to wear to work in the summer months on my rainbow cardigan (which you can see here).

  • PS4 Detroit: Become Human – (link)

Oh man I have been anticipating this game since it was announced in 2013, 4 years has come and gone and I am SO READY for this game now! I’ve always loved David Cage’s/Quantic Dream games so this is just another one I’ll know I’ll adore. It’s set in Detroit (obviously) and is about 3 characters, all robots with different stories. It reminds me of Heavy Rain in that aspect that you play as multiple people. I’m not 100% sure if all their stories link, but I have a pretty good feeling they do. The games out late May so I’ll be pre ordering it closer to its release date. Smyths Toys are amazing with game pre orders and you save Β£5 if you order quickly enough, which of course I’ll be doing! I know there’s a demo for this at the moment but I don’t want to play it, I want a surprise when the game comes out. I’ve watched a little bit of people playing the demo and let’s just say, that was enough for me.

  • Vans X Lazy Oaf Old Skool Platform Shoes – (link)

BE STILL MY BEATING HEART! I want these SO MUCH right now but I have to be a good girl and save money. I love a good pair of Vans and I find they last so well. If it wasn’t for the fact one of my oldest pairs of Vans (I’ve owned them for 12 years!) are covered in mud and in a shed at my mom’s, I would still wear them. I’ve wanted a platform pair of Vans for a while now and these are pretty kawaii and adorable to wear with jeans, and even skirts and dresses. They’re Lazy Oaf so I knew they wouldn’t be cheap BUT they’re also not badly priced either, in my opinion. I would like to buy a pair before they sell out. I’d wear them at work every now and then too if the time was right. I’ll see how I feel when I’m paid and if I’ll have any spare cash. There’s only one place I can actually find them in my size right now, which is such a shame. They sold out within a few days Vans, Lazy Oaf and even ASOS.

  • EMP Star Wars Collar Jyn Dress – (link)

I remember featuring this on one of my wish lists last year (August to be exact and you can read it here if you do so wish) and I never did buy it. I still do, as I would love to wear it for work! It’s the perfect length, would be great to wear in all seasons, as during the colder months you could wear a long sleeved top underneath it, which is probably what I’d do all the time. It has a hood on it, which is something different too and would be really funky to wear on evenings out with friends. When the hood isn’t worn up it has a sort of cowl neck, which I really like. This does feel like more of a dress for winter, but I’d love it for work. πŸ˜›

  • Monki Rainbow Ribbed Top – (link)

Recently I discovered Katystraub on Instagram and I am in love with her feed! She’s so kawaii and adorable. I’d noticed her wearing some rainbow striped t-shirts and loved it, so when I found out they were from Monki I had a good nose on the website. Sadly theΒ  ones she had were sold out but since then I’ve been keeping my eye on the website for anymore t-shirts like that to come out. I found this one the website a few days ago and I’m tempted to order it for work now to wear with skirts and trousers! When I’ve written this post I’m going to have a good nose on the website. πŸ˜›

  • Nails Inc Self-Made Mermaid Nail Polish Duo – (link)

I remember wanting this nail polish duo when it first came out, but obviously I never picked it up. I’ve been browsing eBay for second hand ones for a while and I’ve found quite a few for sale, BUT ALWAYS MISSED OUT ON BUYING THE DUO CHEAP! So annoying! I doubt I’ll buy it anytime soon, but I would love to pick it up in the future for sure. I forgot how much I love Nails Inc polishes and the duos are pretty good to be honest. The only thing that is putting me off buying the duo at full price is I don’t feel like the Nails Inc polishes last as long as they should for how much they cost.

So there you have it, my wish list post for May! I would love to buy everyone off of it, but I need to be good! It can be so hard though, you know? πŸ˜›

Until next time, take care all and I hope you’re ready for the long weekend. πŸ˜›

Wish List Wednesday – Work/Office Wear

I don’t feel like I’ve done a wish list Wednesday for ages and I’ve really missed doing it! Expect loads with Christmas coming up, as I’ll be working on present ideas for all sorts, which I should be teaming up with Sarah over at Raiin Monkey to do some posts on!

With my new job I recently went on a mini shopping trip to pick up some bits and pieces as I had pretty much sod all! You can read about what I picked up here. I’m already craving some new pieces though and I won’t be able to grab anything for a while, so I thought I would take the opportunity to do a wish list of what goodies I want.

  • New Look Black Velvet Skater Skirt – Β£12.99 (link)

On my recent haul I picked up the normal black skater skirt and it’s so comfortable so now I want the velvet version! It’ll definitely be really nice to wear throughout the winter, especially with a nice mustard jumper and a red shirt. It’s also a really decent price too, which you can’t moan about!

  • Killstar Wicca Flats – Β£44.99 (link)

I don’t really need a new pair of flats as I have a pretty much brand new pair that I bought for my graduation 2 years ago! Now I wear them for work and they’re okay, but they’re not the best to be honest. They’re a little bit too big for me and I can’t drive in them. I want a new pair of flats to just wear casually anyway in and outside of work and I’ve had my eyes on these for a while! I won’t be paying full price for them as for flats they’re really expensive, but if they’re on offer I’ll soon pick them up.

  • Her Universe Studio Ghibli Kiki’s Delivery Service Jiji & Lili Town Pattern Blouse – $44.90, currently $35.92 (link)

This is a brand I’ve recently discovered and it’s so damn amazing! I’d know about it through Hot Topic for a while but never realised it was a brand until I was gathering items for this post. It was actually Vikki over at Cuteek who linked me to Her Universe when I was asking on Twitter about work clothing. There really are some great pieces for work on the website and I wish I could afford this shirt right now. One day it WILL be mine! It’s part of the Studio Ghibli designs and this one is of the cats Jiji and Lili Town from Kiki’s Delivery Service. This was one of the first Studio Ghibli movies I watched so I have a place in my heart for Kiki and Jiji. This shirt would be really nice to wear with a black skater skirt and boots.

  • Killstar Santeria Distress Knit Tunic – Β£49.99, currently Β£24.99 (link)

Another Killstar item and this one is a knitted tunic. Killstar do gothic pieces, some of them can definitely be wearable and this is one of them. It’s just a basic tunic pretty much but it looks so snug and comfortable! I’d team it with leggings and boots or flats. I wish I could grab it whilst it’s on sale, but sadly I doubt I’ll be able to. This being said though, this has been on sale for quite some time, so fingers crossed! My only concern with this is I would worry the knit wouldn’t feel nice to the touch, I’d hate that so much!

  • EMP Jawbreaker Fishnet Collar Dress – Β£41.99 (link)

This dress is so expensive and it makes my bank account hurt. BUT it’s also gorgeous and definitely the style I’ve been after for my new job… Just with normal sleeves instead of fishnet. I’m not going to complain though as it’s gorgeous! I will wait for it to drop in price though as for what it is, nearly Β£42 is a bit too much for my liking, but again when this goes in the sale I’ll definitely pick it up!

  • Hot Topic Her Universe Studio Ghibli Spirited Away Confetti Wrap Dress – $49.90, currently $39.92 (link)

Another Studio Ghibli piece by Her Universe and it’s one I would love to have for work! My favourite Studio Ghibli film and one of my favourite films is Spirited Away so anything to do with that film is always something I want to own if I can. I’d love to be able to own a dress with Haku on as he’s my favourite, but I love No Face just as much! Like the Kiki’s Delivery shirt, it would be lovely to be able to wear a piece like this for work and on days off to show my love of the Studio Ghibli movies.

  • Sainsbury’s TU Navy Checked Print Wide Leg Trousers – Β£20.00 (link)

I actually came across these on one of my work breaks last week! I was looking for some plain t-shirts to pick up for work as Sainbury’s do some really nice ones for good prices! Instead I ended up finding these tartan looking trousers, which are wide leg. They’re elasticated like the houndstooth ones I picked up from New Look, so I definitely need them in my life! I’d team these with a cream or mustard yellow jumper.

So those are the pieces I’ve been eyeing up to buy for work! I know it sounds incredibly sad, but I’m still so happy with my new job and I know it’s going to be so dangerous now I can wear my own uniform! I can wear nice clothes, so it’s going to be a constant excuse for me to buy a pretty dress. πŸ˜›

Do you work in an office? If so where do you get your pieces for work? Please leave me links below as I would love some ideas of where to shop for things!

Until next time, take care all and I hope you week is going well!
