I've just ordered some spike studs off ebay to do a few DIY's with, which should create hours of fun in an otherwise lacking summer break. I know a lot of other bloggers have done the same and it's such a great alternative to the generally overpriced pieces on the highstreet. Plus I feel it creates a more personal touch, adding a cool offbeat edge to almost any outfit.
I loved these sunglasses ever since I saw Camilla from Into the fold sporting them. The combination of cat-eye and 90s circle frames (two big trends in terms of sunglasses this summer) create a look of quirky cool which I seriously can't get over. They're on sale right now so I snapped them up without a second thought.
The Sam Edelman 'Zoe' boots are utterly amaze-balls, I saw them ages ago but sadly never in my size, or price bracket for that matter. They're modelled after a pair of Balenciaga boots (circa 2007) famously seen on the Olsen twins. So with style icon status behind them it's no wonder they've been blogged to death, but there's no denying how awesome they are. If any one sees a pair - SIZE 4 in black - floating across the interweb, hook me up and I will be eternally grateful. It would genuinely make my life and we'd be bestest friends forever more... me and the shoes that is ;)
I put earrings on the wishlist and I don't even have pierced ears O_o but they add to the girlie grunge vibe I'm unwittingly building on right now. Also I've fallen in love with the trend where people wear one cross earring and one stud - it's like some sort of nu-wave pirate chic for guys and dolls alike. Proudlock from Made In Chelsea (oooft yeah) looks to be a proud pioneer of this trend.
What's on your wishlist right now?
