Dollar Spring Wishlist

25 April 2010

I want to go shopping.  Not just any kind of sporadic, pick up a few items kind of shopping, but the full works.  I want to be traipsing the streets of New York with so many bags, that I find it impossible to balance.  I want to empty my bank accounts (but then I want them magically to refill again).  I want a new Spring wardrobe.  Where did these illogical thoughts come from?  I guess that by looking back and forth at the improved temperatures online and the heavy, wintery clothes I packed, my options are seemingly limited.  No fear, I've decided to tackle this problem head on and have created a visual representation of the things I desire in my wardrobe this season, which can be adapted easily for summer. With some positive thinking, hard work, determination (and perhaps some overdraft), I can achieve some kind of balance and keep my shopping trips a tad more focused. My style splits into two; the first is the more whimsical look, with patterns (flowers and stripes) mixed with quirky jewellery and accessories.  The second I have coined the term 'Grunge Lite' which nods at the trend but is never full on, with draped tanks, boxy knits, 'ugly' shoes and unusual leggings.  Here's exactly what I'd be being, if I didn't have just 50 cents...

Can you tell I've had this post planned for months, with numerous images in a desktop folder and multiple bookmarks saved?  No?  We'll move on...



All I need now is a few thousand dollars (maybe a lottery win is in order) and a very understanding person to carry my bags. What's on your wishlist for Spring; do you also have split wardrobe personalities?

The items represented by no means constitute what may or may not be bought.  Items are subject to change without notice, and more products may be added at any time.  Check www.iwantyoutoknow.co.uk for full terms and conditions...

  2. Kristabel, I am in love with those modcloth socks...they would go perfectly with those shoes in the second collage!

    I noticed not so long ago that River Island have a skirt that looks just like those Wang skorts....not quite the same though right?

  3. Yep your whimiscal section are all things I want as well, including the satin miu mius, the wang skirt, the modcloth knee highs (or are they thigh highs?) either way I want it all. A thousand dollars ought to cover it. Yep, that would come in handy...
