Wants of the Week #8

These are just some of the trends I've been lusting after this week. 

1. Aztec print leggings - River Island £15
These are now out of stock at River Island, but they were the closest to the ones that I have bought from Primark. For £6! They're obviously not as good a quality, but I'd probably wear them the same amount of times so I'm glad I got the Primark ones. Aztec print is everywhere right now. 

2. Cross Neclace - Dorothy Perkins £6.50
Every blogger seems to have a different cross necklace. I'm a big fan of rock/dark/gothic clothes and thought this gold necklace was a steal for £6.50

3.Black Suede Loafers - ASDA £10
Lovely simple shoes in the loafer shape. They'll go with alot, and they're smart too, to wear with dresses.

4. Extreme dip hem top - ASOS Curve £25
To go with the print leggings I think a plain top is the way forward. Another trend that is everywhere is the dip hem. Whether it be top, or skirt or dress. This top has the added extra of a chiffon cross on the back. It spices it up a bit whilst still being plain. For £25 I could see myself wearing this over and over again. It also covers my bum up in the leggings too, which is always a plus!

5. Blusher - NARS £21
On the blogosphere you always hear rave reviews about NARS blushers. So now I want one! I've heard Orgasm is a good one, and I would like a peachy toned one. I could never justify spending £21 on a blusher though, but I haven't tried it, can you persuade me!?

6. Gold Cuff - ASOS £15
Love the cuffs that are out at the moment. I have an older silver one that used to be my mums in the 80's but I would love a gold one now. I've seen quite a few on ASOS and they'd go lovely with the gold cross too.

5. Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation - Benefit £24.50
Another popular item on all the blogs recently is this foundation. I've only read good reviews about it. I need to get myself a sample and matched. I really don't wear foundation even on nights out as it drys my skin out a lot but I would love to see this one. I'm really buying into all the hype about it.

I just wanted to mention the Clements & Ribeiro Swan collection at Evans. I am quite impressed with some of the stock, I reckon those t shirts would feel like heaven, and the prints are amazing for summer. But I still think it falls short a little bit, it's still not exactly what I was expecting...My favourite item is this one, I love the fifties feel and the nipped in waist. And I think thats my favourite print too.  What do you think? Have you got any favourite items.

Anyway, the sun is out again today so I'm going to try and tan again!
