Autumn/Winter Bershka Wishlist

I’m thrilled to have a new job again to support myself while I’m in college. And I’m working at one of my favourite shops, Bershka! Naturally I’m already mentally spending my wages and I’ve put together a wishlist of some of favourite items. As I don’t have much time to think about clothes at the moment, lots of the items are cute everyday things, ideal for students. Bershka also are reasonably priced and have good sales. N.B. I don’t receive any payment or incentive from Bershka to promote these items-these are all my personal choices.

I especially like Bershka’s accessories. This watch is one of my favourite things I’ve seen all year. (Update-I bought it!).

If you liked my recent post on the lace-up trend, you will really like Bershka’s take on this trend. This eyelet detail skirt is really subtle but still cool.

Meanwhile these lace-up trousers are a completely affordable alternative to the expensive Tripp NYC jeans I’ve been in love with. They are about €100 cheaper, much more suitable for my student budget! 😉

Bershka have also capitalized on the A-line trend. This denim skirt with faux suede trim is really striking. It’s styled very casually here but I think it would look even nicer with heels and black tights.

You can always rely on Bershka to have really nice dresses and tops coming up to Christmas and they are really reasonably priced. I really like their bodysuits and bought a gorgeous navy lace one for my birthday.This tulle and velvet bodysuit would be great for a Christmas night out or any dressy occasion.

The footwear range is also worth checking out with lots of styles to choose from. My favourite styles this season include these studded ankle boots.

Also these white quilted runners are great for ideal if you’re not quite ready to wear boots yet. I’d love these for walking to college and I’d style them with blue or black jeans and a simple t-shirt.

Bershka have one of the best selection of bags out there, I always love looking at their new bags and trying to justify getting yet another!

This season their styles include this baroque print bucket bag.

This detail on this drawstring bag makes it look really expensive but it’s only €29.99.

And saving the best for last, this buckle detail bag with a chain strap is just gorgeous!

Kick the Bucket

Bucket bags are the new rucksack and my new favourite obsession. It’s the grown-up’s alternative to a rucksack but still a fun casual bag.The designer duo who began this craze are Mansur Gavriel who launched a sell-out leather bucket bag in 2013. Since this their bags have been in high demand by fashion-lovers and celebrities everywhere.

Other designers such as Moschino and Michael Kors also want a piece of the action.

The Mansur Gavriel designs retail at $400-$1000 so for those of us not so flush here are few gorgeous alternatives. Everyday walking to work I pass 9 Crow St and take a good gawk in the window.  I’ve been lusting after a gorgeous holographic bucket bag I saw there. I found a similar style on Etsy here.

Etsy is brilliant site for finding original handmade bags. The Pingypearshop have an amazing selection and all under €30!

As well as these, Etsy also sell vintage and leather one-of-a-kind bucket bags. It’s the best place to pick up something that no-one else will have.

Zara are always very quick off the mark so I’m not surprised they have capitalised on this trend.

Gorgeous Zara bucket bag with zip detail  *swoon*.

And if white’s more your colour, Zara also have a fabulous perforated white bucket bag.

If these are beyond your budget, Penneys have some gorgeous bucket bags in store at the moment for about €10. Can’t say no to that 😉 I’m a personal fan of this green and black one and they also have a lovely black fringed one.

So far I haven’t bought any bucket bags but something tells me it won’t be long before I own one! I will have to part with a few of my rucksacks first if that’s even possible… Thanks for reading my blog as always. If you like the blog, please support it on Facebook here.

Summer Style

It’s only the first week of May and I have eaten ice-cream (twice) worn shorts (twice) and lay in the “sun” reading Pride and Prejudice (once).

With that in mind, I put together a summer clothes edit.

Topshop Tube Skirt €43

I spotted this last week in Topshop Stephen’s Green and sprinted like a possessed person to the fitting room to try it on with a black top. It’s quite long on me but gorgeous!

I can’t decide what I will wear with it if I get it as it’s such a snug fitting material that tucking in a wifebeater top looks bulky and awkward.

A cropped top in black or a pale blue would potentially work but cropped tops make me shudder!

If you like the print but not the skirt it’s also available in a bodysuit.

 I impulsively bought a pair of sunglasses in Forever 21 for our one day of sun last week!

I don’t have a picture but they are aviators with chain link detail on the sides.  The closest picture I can find are these Vince Camuto ones above!

I spent the last two summers in America so I got to indulge my sunglasses obsession but I think I will only need one pair this year.. 😛

 I have gotten a few nice pieces in Penneys recently.
Penneys clutch €3
 I got this bag reduced to €3  the other day. I normally hate clutch bags but you can put it around your wrist and I can’t resist studs!
I recently had a slightly disturbing conversation with a friend where we talked about covering our dream houses’ walls in studs (me) and Swarovski crystals (her)…
Taking the unhealthy obsessions too far?! Especially considering my ability to own property is slim to none! 😉
Miss Mode: Porcelain Print
China print dress €17 Penneys
Two of my favourite things combined here: shirt dress and China print!
I love shirt dresses as they are very flattering, you can adjust them to be more or less revealing as you wish and they keep their shape.
This is really summery and the little cut-out panels aren’t as scary as you might think. I think they add a twist to the conservative pattern.
I tried it on and the panels are barely noticeable so I may buy this. Penneys also have cute high-waisted shorts in this pattern.
