Wednesday Wants #4

monochrome wishlist

Knit: Topshop, Peplum Vest: New Look, Candle: Diptyque, Jeans: River Island
Shoes: Reiss, Bracelet: ASOS, Trainers: Nike, Watch: Marc by Marc Jacobs

Today's wishlist reflects my own recent conversion to monochrome and minimalism. I'm looking into redecorating my bedroom, and have found inspiration in pictures of gloriously peaceful white rooms and furniture. I'm a big believer in simplistic and minimal outfits being comparatively more elegant; and what could be more simple than black and white?

This Topshop knit caught my eye instantly, I love that the neck is somewhere between crew and V.  Peplums are perhaps my all-time favourite thing. They instantly feminize and create shape, while flattering post-christmas tums! This New Look vest is so versatile, it comes in black too.

I dragged the boy into the Diptyque boutique off Bond Street the other day, in a futile attempt to hint at potential birthday treats... I'd quite like to work there, just in the hope that the heavenly smell would infuse itself permanently into my nose. Is that even possible? Probably not...

I love the idea of ripped jeans, but they always look odd on me. These River Island beauties however, have only one rip, and they're black, so I can't really go wrong.

I spied these Reiss ankle strap babies in store while I was at Westfield the other day... unfortunately I didn't have £90 going spare, but they're so beautiful that I couldn't not include them. 

After the adorable ASOS bracelet, which has cemented my adoration for their jewellery range, comes the infamous Nike Free. I have yet to decide whether or not I'm cool enough to pull these off, but at the price they're at, I probably won't have to worry about that for a while...

Since my Michael Kors watch had a battery failure, I find myself sans beautiful wristwear. As a result I've been lusting after this Marc by Marc Jacobs dream... it would definitely be more practical to get my battery replaced...
