Wednesday wishlist #11 - A French Connection wishlist :)

Once in a while it's fun to do an expensive wishlist. The kind where if you won the lottery, you would go out and buy it all the next day, but right now you'd have to save up for it! With this freezing weather approaching, I've been wearing my leather jacket non-stop with my big fur scarf, and I'd love to get myself some more leather, fur and knitwear!

How gorgeous is this coat!? If I had unlimited funds I would buy this straight away. I love that it's half fur and I love all black coats. It looks like it would be so snuggly for the walks to uni too!

I'm absolutely in love with the colour of this jumper. I have lots of vintage granny jumpers but I don't have many nice ones which could be worn for a more formal occasion, and this would look so lovely for a Christmas meal with a statement necklace.

This dress really makes me think of some you could wear to a Christmas party and I'm so excited for the Christmas season! My favourite style of dress on the website are the sleeveless dresses from French Connection

I need to eventually invest in a real leather belt as all the cheap black ones I buy seem to fall apart! I love the simplicity and the colours in this one, and as its real leather it would last forever!

I've always been a bit too scared to even try on, let alone buy a leather skirt, but I have totally changed my mind on them and decided that I love them! I'm gonna keep my eye out for one this Winter and maybe even buy it! I love the matte look of them, and it would look so lovely with the pink jumper!

I'm loving fur nowadays, faux of course. I have a giant brown fur scarf that I wear most days, and I have just ordered a big brown coat from Asos which I'm excited to receive. This is so much cuter than the usual boring black clutch bag I own, now who wants to give me the £100 to get it?!

Sunday summary #6

I haven't actually done a Sunday Summary post since the middle of Summer, which was ages ago! I have been super busy with my fashion course this year, which I'm loving but it really is hard work. I'm only into week 3 but it feels like I've been back and working hard for months! Alot of these photos are 'fashion student' photos so sorry if they're all a bit same-y, but that's literally my life right now haha!

 Me, Amy and all the other fashion girls had a girly food and drinks night at the American Diner :)
The fabrics I found on my trip to London, I love them all, how am I gonna pick the final ones?!
This is what most of my days consist of - fabric manipulating in the studio!

I can't stop pinning on Pinterest recently too (follow me here) and this made me laugh so much!
I've been trying out some ideas on the laser cutter at uni, how cute are these paisley cut-outs?
After a long day of uni work, I love sitting down to a Ryan Gosling movie ;)

Coming up with fashion designs using jellyfish as inspiration.
My little fashion section in the studio, I love my floral apple pin holder!
The new ADTR album has been getting me through the days recently!

I love my moon and star ring from Dixi, and how cute is my dog haha?
Moomin pajamas, could you get any better?!
Festival fingers from Dixi, Little Teacup, Waiste and Casio watch!

I want to start adding in my favourite songs or music videos of the week into my Sunday Summary posts. I absolutely love the video to the song, it's so cute and funny at the same time!

Wednesday wishlist #10 - The first A/W wishlist this year!

Autumn is definitely here, with the footpaths covered in brown and yellow leaves, so it's probably time I got my hands on some velvet and fur! I've been so busy with uni work that I've not really had any time to go shopping or lust over any new clothes, but I've still come across these goodies and it's making me so excited for Winter and Christmas!

I wouldn't usually spend this much money on a coat, but it would definitely be an investment and could be worn year after year. I've been looking for the perfect for coat for months, and this might be the one! I'm gonna pop into town when I have some time to try it on and the student discount at New Look always tempts me ;)

I'm sure you've all heard of MUA make up by now, but if you haven't they're a super cheap brand exclusively to Superdrug. I have previously invested in a few of the eyeshadow palettes and I'm in love with them. I've been meaning to get a powder highlighter for a while now, as I do love my Benefit High Beam, but I wanted a change. This has been compared to both Benefit and Mac in how good it is, so for only £3 you can't really go wrong!

I am literally in love with this kimono! I fell in love with kimonos over the Summer and thought they would only end up being a Summer thing, but this one is gorgeous and I could see myself wearing it to a nice little Christmas meal. I was obsessed with velvet and devore, but then I went off it, and now I'm obsessed again! I'm not too keen on leopard print though, so I might try find myself a fabric and try making myself one from scratch!

I recently bought a black lace bra from Topshop and now I don't wanna go back! They're literally the comfiest things ever, and not too expensive! I love the colour of this one, it's really Autumny :)

I lalalalove this top! The fringing, the velvet... It's a bit more pricey than I would usually spend on a top so I need to go in store to try it on and see if it's as lovely in the flesh!

I wouldn't usually ever spend £30 on a ring, but this is literally the coolest thing ever! It opens up so you can keep something tiny in it (or some poison obviously!) I really want to try and find myself a cheaper version of something like this!

The shade of this nail varnish looks like the perfect Christmas nail polish. I love the material on the lid too! I found this on the Motel Rocks website randomly, so I might have to make a purchase next time I order from there. (Also, get 20% off using discount code 'floraldanielle')

Gorgeous flowers from Bloom and Wild, that fit through your letterbox!

I'm so glad that I have come across Bloom and Wild flowers. They are the perfect gift for Mother's Day, birthdays or just a little thank you. They're not just like any old flower delivery service though, they are packaged up so that they can be sent through your letterbox! At a very reasonable price, and with gorgeous flower designs, I will definitely be keeping them in mind when I want to send my mum a little something!

"Fresh flowers. Designed with love to fit through your letterbox." 

I was so intrigued to see how on earth you could fit a bouquet of flowers through your letterbox, but I now know! They are individually cut and placed carefully into the box, and then wrapped in the cutest way! The come with a little instructions book, some plant food and it's all wrapped up in a little ribbon!

This is how the flowers first looked when I opened them and I thought they looked so lovely as they were. I wasn't sure if the greenery would open up or if they would stay shut, but I followed the instructions for a few days and they looked gorgeous in my uni room.

After a couple of days, I woke up totally surprised that my bouquet had bloomed with massive pink flowers! I had mentioned that I liked the colour pink but I just assumed that I had been sent purple as it was the closest colour they had! I couldn't believe it, and the bouquet looked even more lovely than it had done before!

How gorgeous do they look in my uni room?! They literally match perfectly! :) It has been two weeks since I have been sent my Bloom and Wild flowers, and they are still sat on my window sill!

Thanks for reading :)
What do you think of these flowers?
Would you use them as a gift delivery for someone special?

Wednesday wishlist #9 - Sun, moon and stars

I've been obsessing over lovely celestial sun and moon print clothing for a while now, and I've managed to find so many lovely bits in the high street and online that I would like to purchase! I really want to get a sun and moon tattoo at some point, but I still haven't decided whether I want them together or separately on my body. I've got a while to think about it though, as I have no money for tattoos until I've finished my degree unfortunately! My jaw actaully dropped when I saw all the sun and moon print clothing at Motel and I knew that I had to have at least one of them in my wardrobe. I'm also loving all the stone and boho style rings out at the moment and I know I'm going to start building up a big collection of those!

I've been looking for some nice patches to start my collection and to sew onto my denim jacket and gilet, and this one is perfect! My boyfriend got some lovely ones from the London Tattoo Convention which I am definitely going to go to next year!

I absolutely love the look and colour of moonstone and the detailing on this ring is gorgeous too! As I've said before, I used to only wear gold jewellery, but recently I just seem to be drawn to nothing but silver! I want to have enough rings to cover all of my fingers and to wear them all the time everyday :)

I saw that Lucy from Empty Casket posted a picture of this ring last week as a preview and I knew that I had to have it. When it was put online and I saw that it was only £6, I knew even more that I had to have it!

As you all know I interned for Waiste Clothing over the Summer, and it was super duper fun. I was there through the whole transformation and relaunch, and that included making lots of fun jewellery. I love this necklace in particular because the little crescent moons are so cute, but all of the new stock is amazing so make sure you go check it out!

I've been looking for some patterned trousers for ages now and I just can't seem to find a pair that I love. I really like the colour and pattern on these. I love the dark pattern at the top and around the ankle cuffs and it goes so well with the rest of the trousers. They might have to be an investment ;)

Get 20% off all of with discount code 'floraldanielle' :)
I recently ordered the moon and sun print skirt and crop top today and I'm so in love with them! There are a million things on right now that I want to purchase at some point (thank goodness for the discount code!) but this pattern is definitely my favourite thing I've seen in ages! This dress is currently out of stock, but the second it comes back, it's mine!

I love the thought of wearing this long sleeved top underneath a black strappy dress or with a fur gilet. It's literally like the perfect Autumn top and the print is gorgeous too!
