Weekly Wishlist #7
The DISSH top that's finally back in stock, a trio of jeans where I might have to buy them all and my thoughts on pattern and it's place in my wardrobe...
I’m excited about this one! I always try and edit it down to 10 pieces, but this week we have like 14. I think that’s pretty good for me!!! There’s no real theme, aside from ‘things I’ve seen online that I would quite like to be in my wardrobe please and thank you’. It features a party jumpsuit that’s a great starting point, a trio from AGOLDE that’s the epitome of autumn layering and a maxi skirt that feels ‘right’ for trouser lovers…
As always free subscribers will be able to preview the first five items from the list and paid subscribers will be able to see the full 10 piece edit every week and have exclusive access to my Weekly Wardrobe Diary which will detail every single thing I’ve worn in the week prior and hopefully arm you will ALL THE OUTFIT INSPO. A subscription works out at £1.15 per week if you sign up to the monthly plan - see it as a wardrobe investment because you’re going to have outfit formulas by the bucketload. The next instalment of that will be in your inbox on Sunday evening/early Monday morning. See you then!
If you’re looking for a shoe brand that can see you through every single shoe situation (aside from one that required trainers), then look no further than Aeyde. Sculptural heels, every ballet flats, boots that feel very KHAITE-ish but for a fraction of the price? TICK, TICK, TICK. I really love these. I need another pair of boots like I need a hole in the head, but if you’re looking, then it’s a great place to start. Aeyde, Toteme and Dear Frances would be my top boot picks this season.
Whistles Brianna Black Bandeau Jumpsuit* (I’d order this in a 10, I find Whistles comes up quite large)
I told you I’m on the lookout for things that feel festive-party appropriate and this week it was this jumpsuit that caught my eye. I love something that feels fancy, but acts as the perfect blank canvas, because really this could look equally fab worn on your summer holidays out for dinner with some flip flops, as it would with some killer heels, a sparkly little bag and a red lip. 100% something you could wear again and repurpose in 1789 ways, rather than just gathering dust in your wardrobe (I always love a jumpsuit like this disguised as trousers under a knitwear jumper).
Aligne Leo Long Waistcoat (I have this in the 12 but a 10 would be a better fit on me as it’s a little large in the chest)
Look, are you going to see this waistcoat all over my Instagram feed, this Substack, my blog, my TikTok AND my YouTube this party season?! Yes, yes, you are. I wore it last week out for a restaurant launch and it just felt right. As a part-time dress hater, this top feels like it was MADE for trousers lovers like me, but it’s not too fancy that can risk being overdressed. The fabric is kinda dull, but in a good way as shiny would make it feel too party or to workwear. I honestly just love it so much. My top tip would be to size down if you’re a little lacking in the chest area like yours truly. There is SPACE for boobs - but there is an adjustment pull on the back which does work to cinch it in if needed.
I always come back to this bag. I’m having a real bag moment right now - Substack cooking and coming soon. The ‘Hobo’ in the name of this is 100% not a coincidence - Everlane knew what they were doing here, and I have to say that it looks to be a really good cousin to the Celine Hobo Bag. Same soft edges and a size that politely tucks in under your arm. I’m highlighting it once again because this colourway looks so similar to the Celine Hobo Bag that Lizzy Hadfield has (and sadly I’ve never been able to get my hands on!), a sort of yellow-y beige that’s a good year-round choice.
Whistles Celia Houndstooth Wrap Coat* (I’d order this in a 12, if I wanted a more fitted shape I’d for the 10)
I now realise that I have severely cut down my clothing options by operating my wardrobe with a ‘no pattern’ rule. And now I can see that a bit of a neutral pattern dotted in can help add texture and contrast to an outfit, which is something that mine are often to lacking. So along with trying to add physical texture - like suede and cable knits - I’m trying to add visual texture too - with things like this coat. Maybe even a little snakeskin here, a little leopard print if she’d have me back. I’m still going to keep things neutral, but expect to see a bit of pattern from time to time.
