This month you can see I am feeling really 'in the nude' as such. I seem to be wearing lots of chalky pastels against my signature monochrome style items, so it's no doubt that my Lust List reflects my soft tonal palette I am loving!

 I am such a mixture of high street and designer which is reflected in this months Lust List. I always go for designer accessories with high street clothes. As I feel an accessory is an investment and you can wear them day in day out and somehow hope that one day they become 'vintage' and you'll make your money back again. That said I do tend to trawl eBay,gumtree and Facebook selling sites to pick up my designer bits and bobs. If all that fails I usually head down to Bicester village in Oxfordshire which is the most amazing designer outlet shopping village!

The Lust List

1. ANABEL Tie Detail Boots - TOPSHOP- £69.00

Oh-em-ef and gee these are beautiful! I was really into the thinner lace up heels over spring but now I am seeing more of a chunky tie and I am loving it. These would look great dressed down with a pair of ripped skinnies, white shirt and top knot or with a pretty boho white lace shirt dress. They really do take you from day to night. I also love the heel width and height, no more achy limbs and sore tootsies. These may have just crept in my online basket! Oops!

2. Gimme Brow Volumizing Eyebrow Gel - BENEFIT - £18.50

So after watching Fleur De Force's blog where she attended the launch of the new Benefit brow products range (that's right ladies we have a whole new range of brow products to play with! Yayaya!) I couldn't help but have a sneaky look online at which ones I just 'had to have'. As you will know from my previous post about my Brow routine, I am pretty brow-crazy so these products where right up my street. Having looked at the range and deciding I want it all, I said to myself I had to only pick one for my favourites. So I went with this volumizing brow gel! I haven't tried it yet so I can't give it a good review, but I mean who doesn't want to increase those tiny sparse straggly bits! I really do think this sounds like a miracle brow product and I will be certain to review once I get my mitts on one!

3. Biker Style Trousers - ZARA - £39.99

I love any biker inspired fashion items, I think teams with something a little more girly like a lace shirt they can look so so cool (and I am not cool). However when I saw this amazing concoction of girly peach and biker style in one I knew they would be making this month lust list. Just look at their loveliness! If your from the UK you will know we get about 5 days of hot hot sunshine a year so these summery trouser are perfect for having that summer style in our cooler climate! 

4. Unicorn Cake- CRUMBS AND DOILIES - £55.00

So if you missed Zella's recent vlog all about Poppy's birthday celebrations, go now and prepare for ultimate cake envy! Her and Alfie bought the most amazing cake for her from 'Crumbs and Doilies' which is youtuber Cupcake Jemma's gorgeous cake shop! As soon as I saw the cake went and checked out her website and found this amazing Unicorn Cake, and it went straight to the top of my birthday wishlist (yes my birthday is September, but I am already counting down). The website is so innovative and inspiring just as much as Jemma's videos, as always I came away with the baking urge  and have now just baked a dozen cupcakes.

5. Black Lace Hem Slip Dress - RIVER ISLAND - £28.00

This dress is typical 'me' style, a gorgeous cut with pretty detailing you can't go wrong! This dress would look amazing on a night out with a sleep ponytail, red lipstick and big lashes! Or a daytime look with a karki jacket and a pair of converse. It really is so versatile! I am also a sucker for anything with back detailing, so the cross over straps down the back had be straight away!

6. Givenchy Antigona Sugar Medium Tote - SELFRIDGES - £1,465.00

Ok,ok, I know this is a crazily priced bag but a girl can dream hey! I have lusted over a Givenchy bag for what seems like years now and I am on the hunt to add one to my handbag collection, but I am yet to find one at an affordable price! Anyway, if money was no object this would be the one I would go for. The classic shape and beautiful 'old pink' tone is absolutely stunning! I also like the medium size, as I am such a big bag lover I could never have a small one but this seems perfect, enough for my filofax,phone,make up and all that junk you keep in your bag! Hang on, I'm sounding like own this already! If only!
