Time to take a look at my Weekly Wishlist (Which, needless to say, will be replacing the monthly ones I’d been doing: not even I have THAT much stuff to lust after! Well, not ALL the time, anyway…). This week, I’m continuing to be tortured/tempted by all of the full skirts and floral prints that are still available: I’ve been in my element this season, with the current fashion trends aligning perfectly with my own personal taste – it doesn’t happen too often, but when it does, it’s very tempting to just buy ALL THE THINGS while I can. Here are some of the things I’ve wanted to buy this week:
Topshop rose texture midi skirt, £48
Topshop have been my favourite skirt store this year, and have produced tons of gorgeous, full midi skirts, in exactly the style I like. This one arrived on site this week, and I really like the lemon background to the floral print: it’s a colour we don’t see nearly often enough in fashion, as far as I’m concerned!
ASOS wiggle dress in summer days print, £50
ASOS have ben releasing this dress in various different colours and prints over the past couple of years, and each one seems better than the last. I own a couple of versions of it, but although I love the dress, I find the style runs very large, and always requires a lot of alterations, which is why I’ve hesitated to buy any more. This pretty summer print went straight onto my ASOS saved list, though – I just hope it’s still available when I can afford to buy it!
Aaaand, very unusually, that’s it for this week’s Wish List! It’s almost unheard of for me to only find two “must-haves” in the space of a week, but while there are lots of other things out there I really like, I’m making an effort with these posts, and with shopping in general, to focus only on the things I LOVE. I’m also going through a bit of a makeup-obsessed phase at the moment: I can go for months on end using the same old products and not really thinking too much about them, but then all of a sudden I’ll want to buy EVERYTHING I see. That’s the phase I’m in at the moment, which means my budget has taken a bit of a hit as a result. I’m sure I’ll be back to my usual dress-obsessed ways soon, though!
I went to the ASOS website light night and for once was happy that it does not deliver to Russia – there were at least 20 items (mostly dresses) that I want from them. And yup, the blue-print one above was on that list.
Hi! Amber. I only remember seeing one ASOS wiggle dress on you. Maybe you would do a recap of all the ASOS wiggle dresses you’ve already owned plus the ones in your wish list? When I first saw those wiggle dresses, I was hesitating if I should get one. Dress with sleeves is a plus (pocket is a bonus). I’d have bought one have I discovered you earlier. By the way, I stumbled upon your website when I Google for review of an ASOS dress. It wasnt ‘the’ dress you were wearing but ForeverAmber is the only blog about outfit I read.
Hi Tess, I haven’t actually photographed any of the dresses I have in this style, so I wouldn’t be able to do a post on them unfortunately!
I was wrong, I thought this lovely gingham dress was one of them: http://www.foreveramber.co.uk/2012/07/one-thousand.html
Ah, no, that’s actually a different (though similar) cut – it’s quite a bit shorter and doesn’t have the pockets and folds at the waist!
The gingham dress has a good cut, I think you don’t really need to alter it you would the wiggle dress. I saw you’ve bought ASOS Wiggle Dress in Summer Days Print and am hoping to see you wearing it. I love the cut of another wiggle dress with v-back, ASOS Textured Large Floral Print. But it’s a shame the florals are too large.
