February Lust List

Doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun?

It’s lust list time again.

Following on from January’s Lust List, I must inform you that birthday money is now burning a hole in my pocket. The Mulberry or the Stella McCartney bag may soon be mine. I will keep you posted.

Onwards, to the things that have turned my head this month… so that would be a fair few of the A/W ’13 collections then!

I’ve decided to stick to the here and now and go with current ranges.

Up first is the Lena Jersey Jacket from Whistle, included in a recent post. I have decided that I absolutely must own one of these.  Spring is very nearly upon us and it will become a much worn item in my wardrobe. Plus at the moment you can get a further 25% off courtesy of Grazia. I make that £71.25 but my maths is quite ropey so this could well be wrong! If you work it out to cost more please don’t tell me, as I’m happy being blissfully ignorant!

My next lust of the month is something that I’ve had my beady eye on the a good few weeks now. I’ve yet to try them on but, like Kat over at ‘Does my bum look 40 in this?‘, I have a soft spot for what I like to call ‘comfy slacks”. This pair look like they could well have my name written on them. However as I said, as yet they remain untried. There is strong likelihood that I could end up in French Connection looking like a pig in a sling for the 2nd time in as many weeks! But the Nix Nights Tie Front Trouser have a place in my lust list…for the moment.

I am constantly on the lookout for tops that can do a multiple of different jobs. If I can dress it down for a school run and dress it up for a night out, (that’s a few drinks or a meal, not a ‘out out ‘ night out!) then it gets a big thumbs up from me. I think I may have found a contender in this top by Splendid currently being sold by Atterley Road. Also I do have a bit of a thing for grey, so for this it gains a double thumbs up!

My amazing (though possibly slightly insane) friends, have asked me to be Godmother to their son. The Christening is in June and so the search for an appropriate outfit begins. I’m loving this dress by By Marlene Birger and it could definitely be worn again and again. It’s a bit ‘spenny’ and black may be an issue but mixed with a coloured blazer/ accessories I think this could be a winner.

My final lust for February is a piece of jewellery. I am already the very happy owner of an Alex Monroe bee necklace. It’s a really lovely piece and it goes with literally anything. For this reason, I think my little bee needs a friend to help with the workload. I am therefore hankering after this gorgeous Hummingbird necklace.

And there we have it, I think I’ve been very restrained!

What do you think, do you like or loath my February lusts?

Happy weekend everyone!

  1. Hi there! the Whistles jacket is a great choice what with the 25% discount and I’m also loving the Alex Munroe necklace too! Can’t wait to see your imminent bag purchase too! Hope you have a great weekend xxx

  2. Oooh I’d love an Alex Monroe bee necklace. So sweet but reasonably discreet. But other things keep getting in my way of buying one … like clothes! I want to have a look at the Lena jacket and I can’t decide what colour and there’s not much time left till the discount runs out. I just don’t have any of these useful little jackets …. which I’m sure will revolutionise my wardrobe once I get one.

      • Oh no – I went to try on the Lena jacket armed with my discount and it didn’t look nice on me at all. I think it needs to be on someone just a little taller. And I could have done with a size 9. Isn’t that always the way? Not to worry – bought other stuff instead! But not from Whistles.

    • Wouldn’t it be lovely if we all went out and bought jackets that didn’t get worn because we have a scorchio summer? Sadly I’m sort of thinking that it will probably be very well worn by September!! Have a good weekend xx

  3. I love all the bits and can’t wait to find out what happens with the bag. I really regret not getting a Stella one in the sales, they were so cheap on Harrods. I saw a gorgeous coral one in the flesh today! x

    • Hi, I can’t wait to find out what happens with the bag either. It’s going to be a bit of a wait though as the date for the girly shopping spree is in April!!!!!!

Please leave a comment, I'd love to hear your thoughts. x
