What i Want: Autumn/Winter '10

1. Brown Lace Up Boot, Office £65. 2. Tweed Shorts, Topshop £38. | 3. Autumn Lipstick in Plum Rebel, No7 £9.75. | 4. Faux Fur Coat, Topshop £98. | 5. Leopard Fur Collar Coat, Topshop £85. | 6. Double Finger Bird Ring, Urban Outfitters £8. | 7. Tapestry Frame Bag, Topshop £40. | 8. Suede Lace Up Wedge, ASOS £60. | 9. Leopard Print Scarf, Republic £8.99. |10. Tooled X-Body Bag, Urban Outfitters £32. |11. Knitted Fairisle Cardigan, Topshop £55. |12. Animal Print Dress, Warehouse £45. |13. Peter Pan Smock, Miss Selfridge £45. |14. Burgundy Tights, Topshop £17. |15. Cloche Felt Hat, ASOS £18. |16. Butter Nail Lacquer, Boots £10. |17. Brown Leath Ankle Boots, River Island £74.99.

Before I made this list I imagined it to be full of colour, deep burgundy, rusty orange, chocolate brown, and deep green, instead it seems to be mainly black and cream! Oh well, I'm sure my autumn wardrobe will be more colourful in reality. There's so many lovely clothes available at the moment that all look so cosy, but there's something slightly wrong about buying winter clothes in August, despite how rubbish the weather is! Although I'm starting to feel like I should be buying these things now, because that lovely chunky knit cardigan has already sold out! There is one issue with doing this though, I'm so fickle! If I bought a winter coat now, I'd probably hate it or have seen one I like even more by the time winter arrives! 

Anyway, one thing I do know is that I want my wardrobe to be full of peter pan collars, I love them. Another thing I'll be wearing a lot of is leopard print, hopefully with a 60's bouffant and plenty of flicky eyeliner! I'll probably exclusively be carrying satchels, or boxy shaped bags, I love the tapestry one above. Loafers and lace up ankle boots will be the only footwear I choose, teamed with chunky wool socks and opaque tights. I also want a collection of black felt hats! No matter the shape, bowler, cloche, trilby or pork pie I want plenty of hats. There will always be room for tweed as well, shorts, tapered trousers and oversized blazers complete with elbow patches! I'd love a deep wine colour on my nails or lips too. What will you be wearing this autumn?

    I think you've inspired me to do a DIY on creating peter pan collars this week, they are pretty easy to make and can be attached to old t-shirts to liven them up - thanks! :)

  21. almost all of those things i have seen online and completely lusted over, too! (especially for some reason, the tweed shorts. i can't work out if they're awful or amazing!)

    i'm the same with coats, too, i'm torn right now between wanting to buy an amazing one from topshop before it sells out, and waiting a month or so incase i end up hating it! not to the mention the fact we shouldn't even be thinking about winter coats yet!

  27. Ah seriously loving all of this. I really love the tapestry bag, but Brian says they are old lady bags. I now have to make a point to show him them whenever we are in a fashionable store. Definitely a cute bag.
