New In: London Buys

Thursday, 23 August 2012

by Adele



My target buys in London were all about items I'd had on my Lust List for some time.
 I'd been selling some of my clothes & jewellery that I no longer wear on eBay (as well as bagging some up for charity), so decided to use the money I'd made for a few treats.

 If you looked closely at the instagram photos in Monday's post, you would have spotted this bag - well done Bessie for being so observant!

but inside...not one but two treats, beautifully packaged!

Alexander McQueen Skull & Bee Cocktail ring
the Alexander McQueen skull & bee cocktail ring is so iconic, classic McQueen & has been on my radar to buy for some time...finally it's mine!

Alexander McQueen Silk Skull Scarf
 I couldn't walk out the store without treating myself to a McQueen skull silk scarf. After deliberating over so many gorgeous colour variations, I finally opted for feminine pastel pink & grey colours.

I've always liked skulls & it just so happens that they are massive for AW12.
So that's 2 more items crossed off my Lust List.

Do you have a Lust List? What's top of your list?

Oooh I love both the ring and that scarf! What edgy pieces! I love the color combination of the scarf that you went with, it is edgy but still soft and pretty.
