In Love With Fashion Wish List

Hey guys...
So I haven't really been posting a lot in the past while and this is mainly because I have been so flat out with college work. This week I have three assignments due on three separate, days, so I've been under a lot of pressure. The good news is I have two done at this present moment in time and I have to start one tomorrow, but sure it's only tax and that's a fairly unimportant subject...who really needs it right!
Any way I recently signed up to the e-tailPR blogger network and this is basically a site and blog where if you're a blogger and you have a huge interest in anything really they could ask you to guest blog for them. This is a huge opportunity for new bloggers. Their blog can be found here and I would definitely recommend you check them out. They run lots of competitions with really well known brands and one of the more recent competitions I have heard about was the chance to win £200 to spend at In Love With Fashion. Of course me being a student, I have jumped at this idea. I'm not going to lie, but I hadn't heard about this site before, and after looking at it I was shocked to see I had never been informed about it. Doing a retail degree in college, I have learnt about how hard it is for start up companies to get their name out there and specifically to their target market. The company started out as a concession within Topshop (which I vaguely remember from the days my account was in the plus) and they ventured online in 2009. Online shopping has obviously become such a huge thing across the world and there's no longer no reason why your not fashion forward and this company seems to be just that. Consumers have the world (literally) at their finger tips and I'm actually so glad I stumbled across this site. Well enough of my rambling...
The competition asked for bloggers to create a "wish list" style collage of your favourite pieces from the website and boy did I find some pieces that I would love...

1.The first thing that I found was the gorgeous black bag with a gold chain (€38.22). I recently realised that I don't have a bag for nights out anymore that isn't over-sized or too small. I tend to always bring flats with me and shoving these into a clutch never works and bringing an over-sized bag is just too big (I once knocked down a table of drinks due to the size of my bag). This bag looks like the perfect size AND it has a strap that I can hang over my shoulder. Not only would it be perfect for nights out, it would also be amazing for everyday uses.
2.I'm planning on going to the Student Day Races in Leapordstown over the next few weeks and I'm on the lookout for a nice new dress and I spotted a perfect one on In Love With Fashion. It's the Love Black and White Spot Cut Out Dress. I fell in love when I seen it, it's not to "dressy up" but it's also not casual. And it's only €40.77, which isn't bad considering what I thought I would have to spend. I love the monochrome look and cut out sides (but it's not baring too much) and it has sleeves...anyone that lives in Ireland will know how unpredictable our weather is.
3.I have a huge thing with shoes, and shoes which also contain studs I have to own, so I of course fell in love with the ILWF Black Lace Studded Platform Boots. They are amazing, I honestly think I am in love with them! They're €61.16 but I would wear these to death and I was just thinking I need a nice new pair of black boots that I could wear with anything on a night out.
4.The final thing I came across (before I stopped myself looking, otherwise I would end up purchasing everything) was this LOVE Cobalt Long Sleeve Wrap Playsuit. I haven't bought a playsuit in about two years and this is due to the fact that I haven't seen anything that really sticks out to me, but this, well this I think is AMAZING. Words can not describe...the colour, the cut, the everything. I love wearing blue because I always think it tends to suit my skin tone really well and I doubt that this shade would be any different. It's €40.77 and it is definitely going to be purchased very, very soon... even if I won't be able to wear it until June!
That's basically my wish list for this site...and as I said I had to stop myself before I ended up spending my life savings. This site is definitely a new favourite for me and whats even better is that they give 15% student discount AND free standard worldwide shipping for a limited time... Check the site out, I'm sure they won't disappoint..
Thanks for reading and following me!
