October wish list

Once again, I've waited so long to do my monthly wishlist, that it's practically November. So, without further ado, here it is:

Maison Martin Margiela (Untitled)
Several months ago, there was a flurry of blogger activity surrounding the release of the first scent from this beloved, avant garde fashion house. It wasn't until I was at House of Fraser last Wednesday that I finally got a chance to smell it. It was love at first sniff. I'm smitten. As soon as payday rolls around, It's mine.

Okay - ubiquitous scent description: "boxwood, galbanum, bitter orange and incense, along with jasmine, cedar and musk". If that doesn't conjure up enough for you, I find it woody yet sweet, with hints of citrus. But seriously, when I read perfume descriptions, I can never really anticipate what the real thing is going to smell like. If you haven't tried it already, you'll just have to go down to House of Fraser and try it yourself.

Speaking of Maison Martin Margiela, did you realise that the fashion house has an online shop? I'm totally in love with these boots, so the calculations have started in my head - what can I sell on eBay that will add up to £425…

The other thing I discovered when I went into House of Fraser, is that they've totally rearranged it again, and have added some very exciting labels. The one I'm most excited about is Anya Hindmarch, easily one of my favourite designer bag brands. It would be hard to pick out just one, but if I had to, I would say the large Fergus bag in black or light grey. It's big enough to carry absolutely everything, but still manages to look sophisticated and lady-like. I love the woven texture, the tassel, well, pretty much everything about it.

Lady-like really is one of the words de-jour. A hyphenate can be considered one word, right? This sweet little rose gold sparrow and branch necklace with its tiny black diamond eyes will have you feeling like a delicate flower. EC one is offering 20% off until 1 November if you use the code OCT20.

The ASOS White collection continues to be fabulous. The item that's currently saved in my shopping basket is this leather belt cardigan. I love the elbow patches. It actually reminds me of a sweater of my dad's that I saved from the charity shop pile back in the early 90s when we all wanted to dress like granddads.
