It's the time of the season...

My Dad made a Zombies CD for me today. I love The Zombies! Great late 60's psychedelia. And it is indeed the time of the season...for new clothes!
This is the only time of year where I spend a large amount of money on clothes. Boots, coats, woolly tights...these things are more expensive than cotton dresses for the summer!
So it's time to make a list... It's pretty similar to last years really. Looking at last years list I only ended up with about half of it! Oh to have more money!

1. Ankle boots

I was hankering after red ankle boots last year but I never had enough money and went with more practical knee high brown boots (which are falling apart as I wore them so much!) This year I shall definitely get ankle boots, but black ones. I can't decide whether to get cheap New Look ones or more expensive Faith ones? I'm feeling £20 New Look black ankle boots to be honest, I probably will want blue wellies or something next year so why waste £80 on something I'll only wear for 6 months?

I want these but my local store doesn't have my size. If I can't find my size I'll save up (over two pay cheques!!) for the Faith ones. Which are very pretty!

2. This specific coat

I must apologise for the tiny pic, it's here if you want to look properly.
I don't really need a new winter coat, the lovely purple one I bought last year is still great. But I fell in love with this one; I thought it was quite Luella esque. Very 60s. Anyway if I can't get this one in my size (it's going to be another month or so before I can afford it) I'm not going to bother with a new winter coat.

3. Woolly tights

Essential for the winter! I love dresses and see winter as no reason to stop wearing them. I already have some purple ones and I shall be stocking up on black, grey and many other colours from the ever-great H&M. I'm even considering this whole 'jeggings' malarky. They aren't quite those horrible leggings that stop below the knee that we were all wearing in 2007, they're more like very tight jeans or denim tights! And they'd be very cosy with...

4. Jumper dresses

I promised myself some of these last year and never got round to it. This year I shall definitely get a couple! Especially as New Look and Primark have them so cheaply! Naturally what I want is a stylish structured one from Miss Selfridge or Topshop but I can't quite afford it! Especially as I spend £40 on an INCREDIBLE black velvet body con dress last week. I love this velvet trend! I'd share the wonder of the dress with you but my camera is broken. Dammit.

Luckily my (my moms) camera can still take photos.
But I really hate it when I break other people`s things -.-

Nice list for fall! Love the ankle boots! I'll still be wearing my dresses and skirts through the fall and winter. Definitely need to stock up on tights!
