Weekend Wishlist #8 – The Designer Edit

Now, I know that I can’t afford anything in this post, but a wishlist complied of designer goodies can’t really go a miss. And I’m always browsing online collections to see what high-street dupes I can find. It may no longer be the weekend, and blogger may have deleted my original post for this (which may I say spent 2 hours perfecting. no biggie) but hey ho, the show must go on right?!

Alexander McQueen Skull and Chain Leather Loafers, Red Valentino Scalloped Trim Crepe Dress
Printed Brushed Velvet A-Line Skirt, Sophie Hulme Mini Leather Envelope Bag
Stills Wool Blend Coat, Red Valentino Bow Embellished Wool Blend Coat
Suno NY Printed A-Line Stretch Silk Dress
Whilst a lot of this items are totally my cup of tea, some are maybe a little out of my comfort zone or dare I say out of this world (yes I’m looking at you intergalactic-inspired skirt).
The Alexander McQueen black loafers certainly embrace my 13 year old emo days with it’s skull motif fitting the bill. In fact their whole ‘Dress Rehearsal’ collection is to die for; the lace jacquard dress with  rib-cage shaped lace? My inner-goth is certainly happy with that (even if is the £1,435 price tag is a tad *cough* out of reach). And if you’d have asked me a month ago that I’d fall head over heels with a pink coat – a trend that certainly wasn’t for me – I probably would’ve laughed in your face. Me and pink have never had a budding relationship, but what I can say? Me and this Stills coat have a connection. The handbag gods made a good ‘un with the beauty that is the Sophie Hulme Envelope Bag in the most perfect coral shade. With scalloped hems and bow detailing, Red Valentino have certainly got it right again? Count me in.
What’s on your wishlist at the minute?
(And ps – sorry for all of the wishlists at the minute – my camera got caught in a bit of a flash flood last week so it’s been drying out for a good few days, haha.)
