Friday's Fancies: Autumn Lust List

I am terribly sorry for the delay, but I have been really busy these days. Even though I have fewer classes during my senior year of high school, I can definitely feel the pressure... On Tuesday, we are filling in our exam declarations including the subjects we want to take and the topic of our oral presentation. At the very moment it all sounds unreal that 7 months from now, I will be graduating from high school and if everything goes the way I planned and I pass my finals with flying colours, leaving the country. I have also engaged myself in the whole prom committee activity and attended the first meeting. We have already decided on the date, venue, band and the camera guy. The only thing I seem to lack at the moment is a dress... oh, and a partner.
(Any volunteers? Ha.)

As for my laptop, it turned out it can't be fixed at the very moment, since finding original parts is harder than we first thought. I've been on the lookout for a brand new one and hopefully I will place my order sometime this week. For now, you're gonna have to bear with me and my rare posts, but I will try to make it up to you!
This week's Friday's Fancies challenge involved creating an Autumn Lust List, which I found highly enjoyable. Every single year, I keep waiting impatiently for all those fall collections to hit the stores. I absolutely love layering, throwing on adorable oversized cardigans and coats and accessorizing with scarves.

One of the items on my list is a beige cape from H&M, which I've had my eyes on for some time now, but the price always scared me away. What I think would look totally amazing paired with a simple black coat is that detachable fur collar. I haven't caught on the trend yet, but this item sounds like a perfect beginning. Not to mention those suede Isabel Marant beauties which immediately stole my heart. They combine two most important features when it comes to shoes- the looks and comfort. And if they can keep you warm at the same time, it's a major win-win. The only threat coming from owning them is that I could possibly refuse to take them off... Not that I would mind though.
 As if it wasn't enough, a real fashionista can never have too many accessories and that's where the handbags and necklaces come in handy. I have already told you about how I've been in love with the Furla brand ever since I visited one of their boutiques in Venice, Italy. The other handbag, however, has been on my mind ever since I posted my last Friday's Fancies set... does that ring a bell? ;)
Add an eye-catching statement necklace underneath and spray yourself with perfume that smells heavenly (preferably the Viva La Juicy one, it's perfection, I'm telling you!) and you're good to go and turn heads!

What do you think about my set? What's on your Autumn Lust List?

Friday's Fancies: Back to School

As you might have noticed, I have been a little bit MIA these days and it's all because my laptop hasn't been fixed yet. I can't even read as many posts as I would possibly like to, let alone comment on them since the PC I get to use in the meantime is the definition of 'slow'. On the bright side, I finally had time to start watching some new TV series and I decided to go for Pretty Little Liars... It took me a week to watch all episodes and I am beyond obsessed already! I am currently suffering from PLL withdrawal, waiting impatiently for the next episode which seems like ages away... who's with me?

A week ago, I started my senior year of high school... On the one hand, the thought of my graduation being less than 8 months away and having to apply to the university by December scares the hell out of me, but on the other I am excited to see what the future holds. This is why I created an outfit which I would gladly wear during my first days of school... and then again, and again, and again.
Since I haven't worn jeans for over a year, of course I just had to include a dress while putting it all together. I've been swooning over those Peter Pan collar dresses for some time now and it seemed like the perfect choice for school. You can simply never go wrong with black & white... plus, how can you not fall in love with that outfit when it's paired with those adorable handbags?
Mission impossible.
While I usually tend to go for flats on my school days for the sake of comfort, here I decided to add a pair of the cutest cap toe heels. They look totally amazing and since they are not too high, I bet they are really comfortable as well. See? It's a win-win.

What are your thoughts on the outfit I chose? Would you possibly wear it to school?
