A Very Short Wishlist



1. Bella Freud Aura Dog Sweatshirt


Woof woof. I have a navy APC sweatshirt with a logo on the front. I have a black Ganni sweatshirt with a logo on the front. And if I get this one, I will have a really cool grey Bella Freud sweatshirt with a logo on the front. Navy, black and grey. Tick, tick, tick.







2. John Lewis KIN Allerton Bag


Mwah mwah! I walked through John Lewis and stopped at this bag. What a gorgeous navy and black combination. I played and pranced in front of a mirror with it for a very long time as I didn't want to put it down. I luuurrrvvve it. It's soft and it's squishy and it's roomy. Hey Santa Grumps - can you note this as being down on my wish list? Thank you!








3. Hobbs NW3 Lucian Duffle Coat


Lush, lush. I saw this last year and I actually tried this one on in store and loved it but it was full price at the time so I sadly put it back on the rail. It is beautifully made which appeals to me enormously and so smart for a duffle coat. The leather trims are well finished instead of being a little rough around the edges which I see on so many coats (go online and look at the closeups) and again it's another navy and black combo which gets me every time. I may look a little Paddington but I will look like a very chic Paddington, so there!






I told you it was a short and sweet list :o)

  1. Short and sweet Sue, I like it! The sweatshirt is such a cutie, I really adore that playful print.

    I reckon with the coat, if you wanted it last year, and still want it now, no harm in splurging is there? or waiting for a discount code...?

    1. The sweatshirt is a cutie isn't it? Much as I love a plain grey sweatshirt, sometimes I like something a little more playful or we can all get a little too serious can't we?

      And the coat? I've never looked at a duffle coat seriously until I came across that one.

  3. Having a small list is good Sue, more achievable if ask me! I'd like to see that bag in the flesh. Hope you get it all very soon. xx

    1. You're absolutely right Sharron. I'm hoping to aim for a few nice things rather than a lot of okay things. However I can't resist good basics.

  4. But Sue....where are the shoes and boots? Can't believe you don't have any footwear on your list! Are you feeling ok?! ;0)
    Really love what's on your list, some great investment pieces! The coat is amazing, I can really see you in that, definitely worth splashing out on if you have been hankering after it for a while too! The sweatshirt is fab, it looks great quality, love the colour and the dog looks so cute!! I do hope the Grumps comes up trumps with that bag for Christmas too! xx

    1. I am trying not to buy any more shoes and boots - I was seriously googling shoe storage ideas the other day! And the coat is lovely or else I don't think I would still be looking at it this year. I tried on a Gloverall one a few years back and it looked nice on but I didn't get it - it was unlined, didn't feel great and was pricey for what it was. However, this one is lined and the black leather trims make it that little bit more special. I'm telling myself it has a touch of Burberry about it ;o)

    1. At the end of the day, I like to stuff everything in to my bags and I am rubbish at clearing out. Every now and then, I get out a smaller bag but I naturally gravitate towards a big tote. I'm going to be totally lopsided in a few years .... or have a bad shoulder lugging all that I do around.

  6. Cutting lists down is a fine art. You seem to have mastered it as these are great pieces. I love the sweatshirt in particular.

    1. I rather like the sweatshirt too. It's one of those few sweatshirts where you can wear a picture of a dog on your chest and not look 12.

    1. It is so you Fen! It comes up big though. I needed an 8 and had room for big chunky knits.
