Just wishing and hoping ....

... that one or all of these items will magically appear in my wardrobe soon.






All these items also adhere to my special mantra :

Thou shalt not covet anything over £200. Unless it's a handbag and then I'm allowed up to £300.
Susie So So 2012

I've featured 3 of these items before on previous posts but the fact is, I still want them ... and it's good to know what you want. Right?  All this wishing and hoping can drive you a bit potty after a while though -  I just need to get on with it. 


The red Wilpshire cardigan has come back in stock.  I'm like a dog worrying a bone when I get it in my head that I want something and this cardigan is something I've been wanting for a while.   Even though I don't really do red.  Red screams at people.  I don't scream at people other than my children when they have pushed my overload button. I've said it before - I'm not sure even why I want this red cardigan.  I just do.


The Shadow Bag,  It's grey and grungy and big and holds a lot and has a messenger strap and it's very me. It's made of canvas so it should be light and it's a great shopping bag for smuggling your purchases through the door. Love it.  Strong contender here.


The MHL jumper by Margaret Howell would replace my bright yellow Topshop jumper which fits badly but I love the colour too much to stop wearing it.  Hopefully (why am I saying hopefully like I've ordered it and it's winging it's way to me?) this will fit better. And I like the fact that Net A Porter say it's "chartreuse".  Told you, I'm a sucker for a posh colour name and I love the fact that is actually affordable Margaret Howell.

The Sam Edelman black trina sandals.  I didn't know I wanted these till last week when I suddenly went mad trying to hunt down a pair in my size at the best price and because I couldn't find them...I'm now on a mission.  I missed the Mywardrobe.com sale which had them at £63.50 and it feels very wrong to pay full price now.  I've been hanging out over at the Chocolate cookies and candies blog where the lovely Marlene has been convincing me that these sandals will enhance my life and my feet no end.  She's also convinced me that I need a Longchamp Pliage messenger bag so I had to add the caveat to my mantra to include the bag which comes in at just under £300.

And my Jigsaw poppy boots.  I just love these but they're the most expensive so it makes it that little harder to pay up. I know I will have them - when, where and how much is the question.  They're going to be my Winter going out evening boot - I'm not into all these spindly heeled shoes which you have to kick off as soon as you get your feet under a table or in the car.  I'm just wishing and hoping and waiting to see if they pop into the sale at any point ... I'm just biding my time.

Currently, I feel like I am being pushed to that "now or never" point because 3 of the items have just come up in the sale and some of them are already starting to sell out in some of the sizes ....  if I don't strike now, I lose!  Decisions, decisions?  What would you choose?

Gosh - did anyone notice that last line rhymed?

    1. I have to set myself some limits as a stay at home mum but I've just been across to have a look at your blog and I love your styling. I wish I was a little more adventurous but I think I know my limitations :o)

  2. LOL! I had a similar mantra once but it went all haywire went I got addicted to Hermes bags. The Trina sandals are fabulous. Very comfy (here's me being the enabler again). Too bad, they're hardly ever on sale because they're just so popular.

    1. When I spotted them, they had 1 pair left in size 36 which I thought would fit you so I actually tweeted? is that right to let you know as you said you might be thinking about the black ones. See I can do enabling too! Though I can't do peking duck!

  3. Oh predictably I love them all but especially the Sam Edelmans. Another enabler.
    As a stay at home mum I try and set myself a budget for clothes, but rarely manage to stick it.

    1. I know Lucy - it's hard and I'm a sucker for a quick fix which I get at Primark and the other stores. Just wishing and hoping for a win on the lottery at some point!
