A very British wishlist

As you know, British pounds and Euros are now now buying cute and pretty clothes from the other side of the Channel is now a chance that everybody from the continent should keep in mind...especially now, sales time!

I've been searching through the most important British websites for online shopping, Asos and Topshop, and found soooo many pretty and (now) very affordable things...
And I've made a selection, which is my little British wishlist...

Lovely mini dress:Manoush, in Asos

The perfect tulle skirt:Heaven&Earth, in Asos

I love them, and I always will:Converse, in Asos

The perfect knit (that I'm definitely going to buy):Simone Shailes for Topshop

Everybody finds the perfect cape...

...except for me!
I've been searching everywhere, and I can't find a cape I really really love.
All I want for Christmas is...a cape!

Any ideas?

Project Runway...(really)

So I'm back, after a stressful month, full of stuff to do for Uni, a little depression and some health issues. Hope you are all fine! It's so good to see you again.

This has been my first totally free weekend, and among other things I have to confess that I watched the entire 5th season of Project Runway. I'm not a fan of "Reality TV" at all...but my best friend, who is quite a TV lover insisted that I had to watch it because there was a girl there whose design I was going to love. All right then...I watched Project Runway in two days. I was free but also dealing with a flu, so I had to stay at home.
I was quite surprised because the program is not as bad as I imagined. It's great that they focus on the work of the contestants and not on their personal life and the stuff they do when they are not designing. It was TV after all, a reality show, but it was ok. Also, I found a lot of creations that I didn't like AT ALL...but my friend was right. There was a unique jewel there, called Leanne Marshall. I totally loved her style, which is very unique. It was a surprise...and well, my friend didn't tell me who was the contestant I was going to love, but I knew it just from the beggining.
Of course, she won. And made a fabulous final collection that I loved. I would totally wear anything from it. And the beautiful colours, and the cute shapes, and all those waves and ruffles..
Check it out...

My favourite

Those beautiful colours!!

I did a little bit of research about the lovely Leanne on the web, and found her website, which you can visit here. And some pics of other creations by her, from which I selected these, because I'm crazy in love with them..

Sorry for abandoning the blog for a was a tough month, really. But I missed it a lot, and I missed reading the other fab fashions blogs...Thanks anyways for passing by, and it's nice to be a bit free again.
