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?

  2. I have the Juicy perfume - I love it, but not as much as my Marc Jacobs one so I don't wear it very often
    Haha wow you are so typically American with your Prom coming up and everything - I wish we had something similar in Australia (we have a formal, but it's not as cool as prom)
    I'm sure that you'll find the perfect dress and the most amazing guy will ask you to your prom soon :)
