What to wish for (updated) this August

Summer Fashion Wishlist


I saved these on my “Fashion Inspiration” board on pinterest for a while, and they are always hovering over my mind.  Here are my favorite picks of the latest trends and I hope some will soon be in my closet !

My Wishlist

TOPSHOP straw hat   The edges have an interesting “shoddy“ look.  There are others with initials or fun words..

ARE YOU AM I choker   Chokers are the new everyday necklace. “Areyouami“ is the clothing and accessories line launched by Rumi Neely, one of the first bloggers I followed.   Check out her online store for basic wardrobe pieces with a minimalist style and original touch.

ZARA body  It is a piece I will purchase with the Visa Bonus Card – have you heard about the concept ?  It is not your usual Visa credit card.  You get to earn “bonus points” each time you shop in one of their partners’ stores.  You can then use your accumulated points in special deals.  I will definitely be collecting bonus points at  Zara in Jelmoli ZurichGet yours online.

GUCCI Dionysus   Certainly not a newcomer on my wishlist… see it in my other post.  I generally don’t like brand icons on canvas bags.  So why do I like this design so much?   I like its contrast – how Alessandro Michele used Gucci’s old logo to bring a vintage look to a bag with modern edgy/structured lines. There is also the textured tiger head closure alluding to the Greek god Dionysus (never hurts to add a talking point with an aura of culture).   Furthermore, the sliding chain strap allows you to carry it in different ways.

GUCCI slippers   A consolation piece when the bag is too much of an investment. This model is timeless and I intend to keep them forever.

DIESEL denim   Can’t have too many jeans of this brand.  I stumbled on this model on browsing their website.

MANGO heels   Very similar to Chanel’s design but way more accessible  – shop them here.

So, what is your latest item of desire ?
