Currently Coveting

FAIIINT, Wishlist, Black, Draped, Gothic, Grunge, Topshop, ASOS, Helmut Lang, AllSaints, Aqua, A F Vandevorst, In Love With Fashion, Gold

With the mixture of snow, gale force winds & buckets of rain that we’ve had here for the past few days I’ve not been able to shoot an outfit for today, so I thought instead I’d share with you all a couple of the things I’ve currently got my eye on…

As I mentioned in the last post, I’ll always have a soft spot for a good blazer & this one from Helmut Lang is possibly my dream jacket. Satin lapels, slight wrap to the front, cropped back & a nice sharp silhouette, it’s also at 65% off on The Outnet making it a huge steal. As usual though, there are none left in my size & it has left me obsessively searching Google & eBay for any that are still around that I can fit into! I need this jacket!

Another thing I will always love is beautifully draped jersey pieces, I can never have enough of them. The knotted AllSaints dress is the perfect shade of charcoal, in the softest viscose jersey & the heavy draping makes it so much more than just another basic dress. I’m also a little bit obsessed with the draped skirt from Inlovewithfashion, it reminds me of a Helmut Lang one I wanted last year, but I couldn’t find one anywhere in black. This version looks like it’s a slightly heavier jersey, which I actually prefer & is a fraction of the cost too.

I don’t think I even need to mention how much I want all of the accessories, every single one would fit so effortlessly into my wardrobe. The Topshop boots & bag are at the top of the list though. I need more black boots like I need a hole in the head, but the woven texture on these makes them too good to pass up.

    Draped and jersey pieces really suit you so you should go for them! I am now pining after the lovely ASOS bangle too, they’ve been really on top of things recently and I always find myself on there during study breaks. Great taste as always Steph! :) xx

    I hope you manage to chance upon the HL blazer in your size – I have one, similar style but no leather trim and it has gotten so much wear as it goes with absolutely everything!

      Yeah, it feels as though there is a HL shaped hole in my wardrobe after seeing it, so many things I can imagine wearing it with! I shall keep hunting & hopefully one will pop up! :)

    Wow that skirt! I’m in love.

    in not normally a fan of collars, they just annoy me when I wear them. That one is lovely though. Can’t beat an all saints draped dress, expensive but so worth the money!

    I’m loving those boots! And that skirt is perfect.

    I would seriously kill for some gale force winds and snow! This Australian heatwave is seriously starting to piss me off LOL! Going to add a few of these bad boys onto my wishlists, especially the blazer which I just need. Hoping I will have some luck and that Helmut Lang skirt is still available! I saw it the other day on They also have the grey version on sale!

      Ahh, I feel for you! I wish we could do a little weather swap for a few days! ;)
      Yeah, I saw the grey one, very tempted, but holding out for the black version! Hope you manage to get one!

    Loveeeely wishlist. Those Topshop boots are amazing, I love the sole! xxx

    This is a great selection for another ‘classic/uniform’ outfit! A blazer by Helmut Lang is a timeless piece and the AllSaints dress can easily become a wardrobe staple!

    I love the beautiful draping of the skirt and the dress! With your tall slim figure you’d fit these pieces like a dream. All the accessories are gorgeous too. I love your eye for beautifully structured pieces!

    the helmut lang drape skirt is back in black this season, and i definitely recommend it! i have the green version and it drapes so perfectly + is so flattering and i think will look amazing on you! hope you’re feeling better at this stage.. xx

    • Posted 19.02.2013 at 11:12 pm | Permalink

      Ohh! That’s brilliant! I will have to try & hunt it down. I was very jealous of your green version when I saw your post with it, it’s such a gorgeous piece!
      I’m still feeling a little ‘off’, but so much better than I was a few days ago, so just taking it easy now & I’m sure I’ll be back to normal in a few more days. Thanks for asking! :) xx

    Really like this All Saints dress. I can imagine it would be a great staple & versatile piece, looks like it would feel great to wear too. Gonna go take a peek at it in the flesh I think and test this one out :)

    • Posted 19.02.2013 at 11:13 pm | Permalink

      Yes, the material is so lovely! I keep picking it up in store & kind of stroking it… haha! Must be good & wait for payday though! ;)
