Winter clothes wishlist, illustrated! ASOS, Zoe Karssen, Vagabond & more.

winterwishlist-small
I thought I’d draw my current winter clothing wishlist instead of showing you photos. It’s more fun this way?! Also sometimes I think drawing clothes gets out the need to want to buy them. Is that weird?! Actually.. who am I kidding!

Anyway! Here are all the items:

1. ASOS Bonded coat with pocket detail – This has gone in the sale and I love the 60’s style of it – except it’s kind of more modern with it’s slouchy fit! I think the colour is perfect.

2. Zoe Karssen bat jumper – Well I’ve been wanting this for ageesss! I’m not into bats very much to be honest but this has been in my wishlist for a couple of months. I think it’s the fit and the messy style of the bat?!

3. COS contrast panel dress – Black. Loose but not too loose! And simple. All 3 of those things are good traits in a dress.

4. Petit Bateau iconic heavy jersey breton top – A warm and good quality version of a simple piece.

5. Vagabond Kenova Chelsea boots in black – I tried these on in Urban Outfitters (I now wish I didn’t) and they are soooo comfy! They are also the ultimate perfect height for boots. At £90 they’re not the cheapest but they are leather so probably would last!

6. Mulberry Kensington in black – Basically everything about this bag is the best. “A cross between a bucket tote and a smartly structured satchel” – can it get any better? At £995 – we can dream on buddy.

7. American Apparel ‘Easy Jean’ – To be totally honest, no jean is easy. Jeans are the worst nightmare piece of clothing to get the right fit and size in ever. I’d like to test these jeans at their claim of being easy. They also look like they would suit short legged people like me.

Soviet Space Dogs – Unknown heroes

I found this newly released book yesterday in the Wellcome Collection bookshop and was so excited! As you probably are aware – I am a rather large canine fan. The book is a fully illustrated affair, dedicated to the dogs involved in the Soviet Space Programme in the 50s and 60s. It’s written by Olesya Turkina – a researcher at the State Russian University.

Scientists in Russia spent years in secret, training stray dogs from the streets of Moscow to fly up to the sky in rockets – this book tells the historical ‘tail’…

What I wore today – Sunday’s outfit

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset
I haven’t done one of these for a while – SOZ. Do you find mirror iphone selfies acceptable?! My room is also a tip so apologies about that (see: giant haribo bag on desk!). But here is what I wore yesterday. I am so happy it’s now cold enough to warrant jumpers and tights. Autumn is the best for clothes!

Grey sweatshirt – H&M
Skirt – The White Pepper
Shirt – Topshop (just a white blouse)
Phone case – Marc by Marc Jacobs from Liberty
