SPRING/SUMMER WISHLIST

Jenny , Friday, 18 April 2014                                                      

Some things I have been lusting after lately, and I almost forgot how much fun it is just to create a nice collage of everything a girl could dream off! (If only I had the money) ;D  I recently just treated myself to a large shabby chic mirror and looking forward to getting some use out of it, (this way it saves me not having to wait "FOREVER" to get in the bathroom, yes it can be a hard life!!!) :'D 

Anyway I have not really had time this past week to just sit down and have a general chit chat with you all and looking forward to catching up on everything especially my blog comments :| normally I reply but I have been super busy lately, so I will make sure to get right on this over the weekend, and check out all your fabulous blogs for those of you that are new to Krystel Couture! :)

I have not done wish lists for so long and figured it would be nice and refreshing for Spring/Summer to get some inspiration and give you guys an idea of what I have been loving the past few weeks, and I must warn you this list is ever expanding, and will continue to grow haha!


For Spring/Summer I am currently loving pastel shades especially mints and lilacs and anything with lace to give a nice feminine touch. I really love this crotchet kimono by a new brand I have recently come across (Little White Lies) and just love the label and all the light pieces making them perfect for summer! I really like the block sandals making them toughen up any outfit with the pretty strap detailing and buckles to the ankles giving them a nice tough edge, and also more importantly, heat friendly letting your feet breath during those extra warm days ;) 

Back to black again and really into this gorgeous piece of "art" from forever unique that being the beautiful Alaina dress, with mesh and lace my two favourite things incorporated into one fitted dress, that really flatters your natural shape not to mention its hand made! Something more "casual" being the pretty Zoey dress by Poppy Lux with a real festival vibe and I love the different fabrics making it perfect for warm days giving a nice unique touch. Last but not least I would love to have the extra cash lying around to afford this beauty, that being the black length jacket by no other than Rick Ownes! His work really is incredible and I love all the fabrics and beautiful soft drapes and I especially love how this jacket has a tie around the waist to give a beautiful fit and shape.



Recently I have found myself buying to many crystal pieces especially from Shop Dixi :') so figured I would search around for other independent stores online to seek out something extra ordinary and this pretty Amethyst piece caught my eye from Druzy Dreams! I have so much Amethyst clusters lying around my room it's hard to keep track but I love collecting crystals and find them so pretty to look at, maybe I will get a post up on this soon, we will see ;) 

I noticed this panel dress on FCUK and just love the details making it perfect for nights out during summer to keep you cool alongside this really bold leather jacket by, you guessed it forever unique! I just adore the zip detailing and how tough this piece looks if only it was in my size! :'( I need this in my life! 

Going into the realm of bags recently I treated myself to the Love Moschino flap in black but would love to get the white version too! The bag really is spacious, and makes the perfect accessory for every occasion and looks great with just about anything giving a nice chic element to the most toughest of outfits. Lace shorts are something that has been high on my wish list for months now especially for summer as I find them so flattering and delicate and these look super pretty especially with the pattern on them. 

I must admit I don't own a jumpsuit and would love to make the effort to start getting into them more as they can be easy to style and this one looks just perfect with the zip pockets and statement collar!

So what are your thoughts on these pieces? Is there anything your loving at the moment?

TED BAKER LONDON

Jenny , Wednesday, 16 April 2014                                                      

(TED BAKER BOW WASH BAG)

I was looking for a nice sleek wash bag for going away on a short vacation a couple of months back to keep all my cosmetics neat and organised for the occasion and noticed this Ted Baker wash bag on Very.com for half the original price at £12, and I just loved the cute bow and pretty detailing!


The size of this wash bag really is perfect for storing all of your essentials and the beautiful shape to give you more room. The bag features a center bow in pastel pink with Ted Baker logo attachments to the center and zip. 

The bag has a beautiful patent finish making it easy to clean and wipe down! However it is easy to get finger prints on the fabric but because of the patent finish you can easily wipe this away. This bag makes the perfect edition to a stylish get away keeping all your cosmetics clean and organised in once place and also comes in great for using at home if you don't like clutter :)

What are your thoughts on this bag, and do you have a wash bag?

CINZIA

Jenny , Tuesday, 8 April 2014                                                      

Being the avid shoe lover I am, these beauties from Cinzia Araia really found a place in my heart when I first set eyes on them! There was no doubt in my mind that I had to have these in my arms when I noticed the huge discount on yoox.com (Great Discounted Designer Website!) 

I just fell head over heels (excuse the pun) with the design and texture of the leather! These are the shoes I have been missing in my collection, something fresh and futuristic! I will be keeping an eye out for more footwear from Cinzia, as I really want to get more in the future. They are the most comfiest wedges I have worn yet and so easy to walk in :')


         Savannah for Nelly Black Shift Dress, Nelly - £28 - (Similar Here, here)

It's pretty mad, but I actually had to buy shoe insoles as the wedges where a little on the large side, but I couldn't see myself parting with them anytime soon! You can notice the insole ever so slightly but when walking in them you can't tell! My feet are a tiny size 3 so it's difficult to find shoes in my size and the fact leather stretch's over time I just hope my feet grow! ;)

I have had this wool trench coat from Lipsy for over 2 years now and just love the quality! Luckily enough I was able to grab it from ASOS for only £80 and always find it so warm for Winter
