August's Most Wanted



It's been a while since I've done one of these mainly because I try not to spend too much time browsing online stores as it results on my bank balance diving deeper and deeper into the red... but with Outlook coming up I decided to spend some time last night looking for holiday clothes. Instead I ended up with this. (Note this is why making wishlists is so dangerous, now I want double the amount of clothes I originally wanted!!) None of these items are very holiday'y at all and in truth I couldn't find anything summery I really liked, I couldn't even find a bikini to tick all the right boxes- I think I'm going to have to pop into town some time soon to get my holiday bits. 

So here's a few items I definitely do not need but really really want: 

I love everything BlackMilk and although this carries a pretty expensive price tag it's a spaceman on a swimsuit... need I say more? This is one of the items I'm telling myself not to buy as it's such a statement piece I doubt I'd get that much wear out of it, however their swimsuit range is amazing and I'm on the lookout for cheap dupes, let me know if you know of any!

2. Mia Twisted Rainbow Stacking Rings - Dixi - £6
These rings are part of the new store update over at Dixi and, they're so simple but the colours in them give them a really interesting edge.

3. Crosses Collar Tips - Topshop - £8.50
I saw this on a instagram the other day and then stumbled across it on the Topsop site, meant to be? I love cross jewellery and this is really different, it's amazing.

4. Rebel At Heart Sterling Silver Bracelet - Thomas Sabo - £119
I'm not one for expensive jewellery at all- the most expensive item I own would have definitely cost less than a £10er. However, the other day I was browsing the Thomas Sabo site and found this, it's really different to the other silver bracelets on there and much more my style. I would never fork out £119 for a bracelet for myself but thought I'd share it with you as I think it's really quirky and unique.

5. Ombre Pink Shirt - Topshop 
They've actually taken this off the site since yesterday(?!) but I like it so much that I thought I'd still share it with you, pink's not usually a colour I go for but this has totally won me over. It would look perfect with a pair of levis, some studded boots and a spiked headband- they have a similar design here for £45.

6. Beneath My Bones Silver Bracelet - Dixi - £7
How good is Dixi's store update?! So good. I need this bracelet, any jewellery with skulls, skeletons or bones incorporated is an immediate must have. I also love the gold version, on the site the model's wearing them both together and I think it's made me want both so I can do the same! Uh ohh.

7. Black Disco Shorts - Glamorous - £22.99 (18.39 with discount code GLAMOROUS20)
I really had to stop myself from buying a pair of AA disco shorts and I am so glad I did because these are so much cheaper! I've seen good reviews about the Glamorous disco dupes so far and these are going in my basket this evening. But I'm stuck on whether to get black or pewter?! Helpppp.

8. Boston Set of 2 Cuff Braclets - Dixi - £12
I've been looking for a silver cuff everywhere and Dixi now do a set of 2 for £12- fantastic. 

These boots are shoe heaven, I need to have them in my life - platform Chelsea boots look perfect with any outfit and can be worn casually and on nights out. Some one buy me them pleaseeeeee? :)

  13. Lovely choices, I saw that collar thingy in Topshop the other day but I'd already spent literally ALL my money the week before... Definitely need to do a round of eBaying and save up, I'm also lusting after a T shirt in Primark with Jay Z on it!

  25. If you get time, pop round to Portobello market for something similar to number 1. We spotted a few space jumpers, tees and dresses that we restrained ourselves from buying (although they were only about 15 or 20 quid).
    Love Ammie and Sharrie xoxo
