Recently, there has been far too much that I have been desiring and when you are trying to save for a holiday, it is really hard, especially during the sales, to try and save every penny you have.
So, here is this week’s catalogue of wishes, maybe they’ll serve as reminders in the future:
First up, I found this jeweller, Jessica de Lotz – she was inspired by her dad, a vintage bookseller and after a childhood spent searching flea markets and antique fairs with him, she channelled her experience into jewellery.
Her signature range turns antique hand-stamped wax seals into rings, necklaces and bracelets. Her new collection for Fortnum & Mason has just launched and is based on hand stamped 19th Century wax seals with the words: Love Forever, While I live I Grow, Love/Truth, Faithful or Friendship on your item. I’m favouring the ‘Such is Life’ option. Jewellery available from £68.
I don’t know about you but I LOVED Jellies as a kid, I wore them everywhere. No matter how much they rubbed, no matter how dirty my feet got – I would never take them off. The more colourful and obnoxious, the better. So, I present these Topshop HUEY2 Gladiator Jelly Sandals. For a mere £20 of glittery goodness they can be yours… and mine.
Despite this deeply unpleasant man being in the news lately for his disturbing actions towards his wife, Nigella Lawson, the Saatchi Store offers many a wonderful gift for someone else or a treat for yourself. I often find myself staring into the perspex boxes at these gems…
Paint Can Ring by Me and Zena – available in white, blue, green, pink and orange for £25
Now, I’m probably a bit biased here because I own a living breathing one but there is nothing to stop your pet inspiring your jewellery…
Ginger Tom Cat Ring by London-based design studio Soop – £5.99
I’ve also found two online stores for buying new dresses because everybody needs a good dress that is fairly priced and well designed – they are also my wardrobe staple:
Playful and quirky styles. A hand-selected range of vintage, reworked and handmade brands.
The White Pepper
East London street-style, back to basics inspired brand.
Does anything take your fancy? What are you wishing on this week?
