For a long time now I have wanted to open Style Guile up - to get the input, opinions, views and ideas of others on fashion. Unsurprisingly, requests for photos have been largely unsuccessful and to be honest I'm not suprised. Risking putting yourself out there to the masses is not an easy thing to do and can be met with a variety of responses - some not always as positive as they might, or should, be.
So instead, a few weeks ago, I floated the idea on my facebook page of seeing how you would feel about letting me have your fashion "Wish List".
I think that we all have things that we would love to own. Some things maybe a once in a life time present. Other things may be achievable with a little bit of saving and other things you may just see and think that they would be perfect to pep up your wardrobe for the season.
The pleasure need not come from how much something costs. It can come from suddenly possessing something you thought that you would never wear, or finding an item in the perfect colour or in the perfect fit.
So thank you to those of you who have been in touch to let me have your Wish Lists and here goes with Natalie's...
The new Baukjen collection was released on Monday. Just by way of background, Baujken initially started off with the maternity brand, Isabella Oliver, and later branched out with Baukjen, which is non-maternity but effectively both are under the same umbrella.
With the arrival of the new Baukjen catalogue, Natalie's Wish List suddenly increased substantially. One of the items from her Wish List is this Baukjen Jodie Cropped Blazer. Oh yes please!
Next up is the Baukjen Amber print pencil skirt. Natalie would go with the whole sweatshirt look with it. I wouldn't mind betting that we will see a lot of this skirt in the press in the next few weeks. It's a beauty!
Finally - for now at least - Natalie would love to own a pair of these Stuart Weitzman 5050 boots. They are an over the knee boot with an elasticated back for added comfort and fit and given that Natalie has a problem finding boots to fit her calves and ankles, these would be perfect for her. Currently she has to go down a size to avoid them flapping around her legs.
So, a big thank you to Natalie and, if you would like to, please let me have your Wish Lists by sending them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org where I will aim to post one a week.
