High street lust #55.


One Sunday night I visited Topshop.com to search for something when I came upon the knitted aran cardigan (£48). Despite its pricetag it was love at first sight. I was all over its chunky cable knit beige-ness. On Monday I returned to the website to buy my beloved but it had practically sold out. I eventually went instore to buy one and came out with one three sizes too big (small sizes all sold out!). I like it that much. Kinda hoping they'll do a second run.

Topshop haven't been wowing me too much this year but their autumn collection is fantastique! Slip on a Peter Pan collar tunic (£28) and tuck it into a pair of leopard printed skinny jeans (£45). Top off with fur cossack hat (£20) and lip glaze in Moondust (£6). I think it all goes together, don't you? Some fur lined moccassins (£28) keep your toes comfy whilst the bear ring (£10) and square stone ring (£12.50) are just cool. Also digging the small leather pattern bag (£35) and that's my autumnal uniform. I really really hope other highstreet stores catch onto this chunky cardigan thing.

I love TOPSHOP but I haven't bought anything because it can be kind of pricey :(
You have such an eye for fashion, my dear! That ring is super cute! :D

And I know what you mean about shopping alone. It's not selfish at all! I mean it's okay once in a while to go shopping with those kind of people but sometimes you just want to shop what you want to shop for. :)
