Another Wednesday, another wish list...
I'm not sure why I always introduce these posts considering I post them like clock work every Wednesday. I'm just going to quit rambling and dive right in.
I paid a visit to vintage-inspired fashion retailer Voodoo Vixen for the first time this week. They specialise in rockabilly and pin-up fashion, and while most of their pieces only cater up to a size 14 or 16 (UK), they also offer a small selection of clothes in plus sizes 2X-4X! I think I found about eleven PS friendly dresses and cardigans, and I fell in love with them all.
The 'Tilly' shirt dress is such a pretty, feminine frock, and I'm a little bit in love with the mint green 'Eleanor' cardi, which is basically pastel perfection.
Another two plus size pieces from Voodoo Vixen... Both the cardigan and the dress feature a fun martini-glass print or motifs! That's one print I don't have in the collection... yet! I really love the cheerful colours of both, although they are probably better suited to S/S than A/W.

It's been a while since I last bought myself a new skirt, but I'm very tempted by Lindy Bop's vintage-inspired circle skirts. You know me: I love a flared skirt! I'm particularly drawn to the chocolate polka dot and blue swan print designs. I would layer the chocolate skirt with a cute jumper (or a long sleeved cardi) and opaque tights for Autumn, and take it out for walks through paths of crunchy dead leaves.
Two of my favourite discoveries this week were these two absolutely stunning flared dresses from Voodoo Vixen. The shape, the colours, the detailing... everything about them ticks all the right boxes. I dare say the forest green 'Penny' is one of the most beautiful dresses I've ever seen. That shade of green is my favourite colour, and it's not seen enough in fashion these days. The dark magenta of the 'Hattie' dress is equally gorgeous, though, and it reminds me a little of my cerise fox print dress from South. I want to snap up both dresses and wear them through until Spring! Both dresses are plus size, and come in sizes 2X-4X.

The teal paisley kimono from Dorothy Perkins is one of the most beautiful kimonos I've seen all year. The colour and the intricate paisley pattern are both stunning, and I think it looks like the perfect Autumn cover up. I still don't own a single kimono, but I'd be quite happy to give this one a shot!
I'm also quite taken with the green swirled effect tee; the colour is divine, and I love the texture of the fabric.
Gingham and polka dots are two of my favourite prints, so naturally, I love these two gorgeous fifties style dresses from Lady Vintage. The good news is they're also both on sale!

Look, the people behind the weekly fashion magazine of the same name, have just launched their new Autumn collection with Simply Be. While I'm impressed with several pieces in the new collection, these two dresses particularly grabbed my attention. I love the simplicity of the red shirt dress and its bold use of colour. And I love the mesh inserts and attention to detail on the mesh trim dress.

It's been another week with some fantastic novelty bag finds. ASOS have introduced some Halloween inspired accessories, including these two clutch bags. I'm head over heels in love with the Halloween lips clutch. I may have got a bit over excited and squealed when I first found it... okay, I did. It has to be mine!
And, finally, I came across these brilliantly quirky bags by The Whitepepper when I was having a browse of ASOS' website last week. The unicorns are so cute! The black design is my personal favourite, but the pink is just as amazing. I'm also quite taken by the eye clutch and I can think of a few dozen outfits it would work perfectly with. I need them to come live with me!
And, that's just a handful of the pieces I've been lusting after this week. If you'd like to see more of the clothes and accessories I lust over, why not check out my Pinterest boards? I pin pieces that catch my eye to several style-inspired boards on a regular basis.
What's on your wish list this week?
