Swimwear Wishlist 2016

Swimwear Wishlist 2016

I am sure you are reading the title of this post and wondering what is she on about. Swimwear in January? Has she gone nuts? Lol. No I haven’t gone nuts, and yes buying swimwear in January, is a good idea. This is the best time to stock up on your swimwear and swimming accessories in time for the holidays, because most people are not shopping for them at the moment, so they are usually seriously discounted in most stores, and with the January sales still on, more discount peeps.

I have been window shopping, and I have my eye on some one-piece Swimsuits at the moment. I find I get the best bargains in department stores, because there are so many HOT options to choose from.

I am more comfortable wearing a one-piece swimsuit, than a two-piece, because the one-piece shows off what I want showing off, and hides all that needs to be hidden. It is a perfect piece and I am lusting over these 6 beauties below:

 

Biba Summer Tropics Large Cup Tummy Control Swimsuit £55 £22

Biba Summer Tropics Large Cup Tummy Control Swimsuit

A love the multi-colours and the busy print on this beauty. The fact that it has some form of tummy control gives it extra points. The halter-neckline flatters my body shape a lot. This one-piece should be in every woman’s holiday suitcase this year.

 

Dickins & Jones Boat Print Swimsuit £45 £18

This Dickins & Jones swimsuit is simply beautiful. I love the very light price tag of £18, this is what I call a bargain, getting a £45 swimsuit for £18, perfect. The navy blue colour is one of my favourite colours, and I love the fact that it has a padded bra for support. Perfect for the not so busty ladies.

 

Linea Weekend Zig Zag Halter Neck Swimsuit £50 £20

Linea Weekend Zig Zag Halter Neck Swimsuit

This is another swimsuit I like. I love the print and colour, it also comes with a padded bra, which is fab. This will look good on me, and with a price tag of £20, I am seriously considering this piece, plus anything Linea is always top quality.

 

Speedy Sculpture Crystalshine Printed Swimsuit £56 £28

Speedo Sculpture Crystalshine Printed Swimsuit

This swimsuit is on my wish list because it is so different from the rest. The brand, Speedo, is known for their activewear, so I guess that is why this swimsuit looks completely different from the rest. It is not as stylish as the others, but I like it. Probably not a holiday piece, but it will be perfect for the gym, and for the kids swimming lessons. Love it.

 

Ann Summers Ocean Fringe Swimsuit £25

This one-piece is so SEXY, but then again, it’s an Ann Summers piece, and most of their pieces scream SEX in a posh way. This will be perfect in a private pool/beach kind of thing, not sure I will be bold enough to rock this in a public pool, but you never know. I love the fringe detail, it gives the piece an edgy look.

Which is your favourite? Drop me a comment please.

Thanks for reading and have a WICKED Friday. Be safe.

January Fashion Wishlist 2016

With the January sales in full swing, I am currently lusting after so many cool pieces and accessories, wishing I had an unlimited shopping budget. Almost everything has been seriously slashed, I am talking about 50% – 75% off the original prices, which is great news for us shopaholics. I know I said in my New Year Fashion & Style Resolutions, I will be reducing the amount of clothes I buy this year, because I currently have an insane amount in my wardrobe, but I also said I would be investing in high-end accessories, and playing around with my style a little, so a bit of shopping is required (wink wink).

So with my bank cards at the ready, here are the items on my wish list for January:

High Quality Sheep Leather Jacket with Zips £159 £119.99

Leather Jacket

This stylish Esprit leather jacket will fill a void in my wardrobe. Do you all remember the post I wrote about my Guess faux leather jacket? Well, I am still yet to replace my leather jacket, so grabbing this piece during the sale will be a good idea. I love the colour of the jacket a lot, and the whole zip detailing. It also looks like a good quality piece. In my head, I have styled this jacket up with pieces in my wardrobe already. I am eager to get my hands on this beauty.

 

Wool Blend Sweater Dress £55 £39.99

Sweater Dress

This Esprit wool blend sweater dress is right up my street. I can picture myself rocking this piece with black tights, knee-length boots and a scarf. I love the berry red colour, I have nothing like it in my wardrobe, and the wide scoop neckline is perfect for me. This sweater dress also comes in a taupe colour, but I prefer the berry red. Red is the colour of the season right?

 

Darci Stainless Steel Watch £259 £149

This Michael Kors stainless steel Darci watch is a beauty indeed. The Crystal embellished bezel gives the watch a stunning look. I also love the polished shine. This is on my watch list at the moment, my watch collection needs a new addition.

 

STEPHAN Wine High Heel £160 £119

 

6380454309

This ankle high heel boots by Kurt Geiger is so easy on the eyes. I love the scarlet red block heel, reminds me of a Christian Louboutin. It will be nice to inject some more colour into my shoe collection this year, so I may be grabbing a pair.

 

Greenwich Black Mini Zip Tote Bag £205 £143

I am a DKNY lover so this eye candy had to be on my wish list. A classic handbag is always a good investment so it is no brainer really.  I love it.

 

What do you think of these items? Which is your favourite?
