Current Loves

Here are a few of my favourites right now:

Kitten D'Amour Black Coffee Dress
I initially didn't like the whole Black Coffee collection because it was inspired by corporate wear and I don't wear much black or blouses and pencil skirts. However, I tried on this dress recently and it became the exception- it certainly isn't too corporate inspired with the oversized flower and lace. It's such a beautiful dress in terms of quality, design and fit. It would be such a classic piece to have for many years to come. I just wish it didn't cost $329!

Kitten D'Amour LouLou Black Handbag
As you can see from my earlier post, I already have this bag in red. I think I'm going to buy it in black also given how much use I've had from the red version (used it every day since I bought it). I love the patent finish, the structure and the pretty bow. It's also proven to be very practical as it's large and even fits a laptop inside. 
B.A.I.T Footwear Sindy Flats 
B.A.I.T Footwear have impressed me again with another pair of adorable and unique flats. I have a few different pairs now and seem to be developing the habit of purchasing multiple colours. I was very happy to notice last week the 'Sindy' collection. There's such a lovely range of colours and I love the cutout design. My favourite would have to be the seafoam version. 

Miu Miu Fragrance
I really want to try the Miu Miu first fragrance and add the cool looking bottle to my existing perfume collection. I’m sure part of the reason I’m drawn to this fragrance is because of the pretty black and white cat all over the advertisements.  I often receive fragrances at Christmas so I definitely associate this pretty with the current time of the year.

How unsurprising- another dress from Kitten D’Amour is on my current loves list. I didn’t expect an additional collection to be released at Kitten D’Amour this year given there have been a number of new ones recently. However, this one snuck in without much notice earlier in the week. It was fun being able to check it out in store on a Tuesday night given the Christmas extended trading hours. The dress comes in pastel colours- yellow, pink and blue. I’m especially drawn to the yellow version as the lemon is incredibly pretty. The lace detailing is so beautiful and I adore the lovely silhouette. The dresses remind me of the Angelina Ballerina series which I used to love when I was a child (before it turned into a cartoon and became less good). 

Glass House Galapogos Candle
The husband and I have developed a love for scented candles this year. We found out from the staff at Peter Alexander that the Galapogos scent by Glasshouse is the candle which is usually burning in store. I’ve loved the scent of Peter Alexander for ages but never realised it was a candle and that it was available to purchase there. I think we will have to go back and get it. 

What's on your wishlist at the moment?

You have fabulous fashion taste. The Kitten D' Amour dresses pictured above look wonderfully feminine. I love the lace border of the hem and floral embroidery on the bodice of the Kitten D'Amour Black Coffee Dress. I also love the lacy bodice and sleeves of the Kitten D'Amour Pretty Ballerina Lemon dress and the flare of its pleated skirt. On my wishlist? I'm still searching for short ultra-feminine puffy sleeved blouses, retro full coverage briefs in vibrant feminine colours, and an easy to use camcorder with either time delay, remote, or in-camera editing. I'm good at dreaming.
I hope you have a very happy Christmas and a fashiontastic year 2016!

Cute picks! I like all of stuff. I have one pair of Baitware and I don't *love* them bc they gave me blisters. I'm curious about trying another pair though so I can see if a different kind fits me better. I love the flats you picked bc they're so fun! I'm trying to get better about better flats for concerts and such. XO
