Lust haves #2

New month, new bank account killers. Let's go!
Topshop Jamaica sundress This print SCREAMS holiday and holiday would be the only occasion I would wear this because I am so totally not a dress girl but I cannot ignore the cuteness of this. I know that it will sell out and never be seen again and I will eventually get over it and forget it ever existed but for now I will love & obsess.
Topshop envelope purse You know when I mentioned that I have questionable taste?...This is a prime example. Actually the main reason that I adore this is that it is reminiscent of this purse that I had in 1998 which was silver and hologrammy. I'm feeling a lot of fashion nostalgia lately and I'm really into this. I'm also trying to avoid the fact that I'm on the wrong side of 20 and I'm not ready to get all Banana Republicy just yet.
ASOS "Desire" Flatforms ...Which brings me to my next item. I wish these had a black platform. I'm not into the white. A little too Spice Girly/easy to get dirty. THESE ARE SO HORRIBLE!!!!!!! Yet I am so in love with them. I love ASOS for shoes, even though I have never actually purhased shoes from them. They always have something a little ridiculous and there is always a discount code flying around (EXTRA24 for 24% off until 9am Tues 8th!)
New Look Grey Leather Glitter Boot I love the glitter detail on these. These are so unique for NL and such a decent price. I had to return my Monki boots because they fell apart and I need something with a heel/wedge to replace them. New contenders?
Maybelline Pop Sticks I'm laughing at myself in my head for my new obsession. I swatched these in Superdrug the other day. They're ok. I love the selection of "shades" apart from the fact that they all swatch the same...(bar one, the deeper red shade) totally transparant, totally blah, totally overpriced. So why do I feel the need to buy one so badly? I wish I could answer this question. You see, last year Clarins launched a product which was practically the same thing but over double the price. I fell in love with the concept of a transparent jelly coloured lipgloss that looks like a ice lolly. I am the perfect idiot consumer. These do smell nice and I like the packaging. Now, which colour do I choose?
Kenzo X Vans I lost interest in Vans when it appeared that everyone and their dog owned a pair, However I am a sucker for a limited edition collaboration and I love the print on these. Also, my burgundy Vans have lived a long exciting life (Florida and Tokyo!) and a replacement is overdue.
