Firstly I would like to thank you for all the great feedback I have received from my #shwishlist. It is great to hear I am not alone in loving these wonderful independent brands.
This week's #shwishlist has been influenced by the beautiful weather we have seen recently. The sunshine and blue skies at home is making my Easter break all the more enjoyable, especially as half of my friends are at Coachella! Using the warm weather as a starting point I have found some fabulous pieces, perfect to wear in the sunshine.
I am utterly enthralled with luxury lingerie and lounge-wear label Ell and Cee. Established in 2002 by fashion graduate Laura Cloke. The beautiful pieces are striking. Designed with brides in mind, the collection features silks and chiffons which sit perfectly under your wedding outfit. Although, you don't need to be a bride-to-be to appreciate the Ell and Cee collections. For this reason I have included the enchanting Pearl Margot Maxi Robe. This darling piece can suit many occasions due to the versatility of the design. The waist is sculpted to the shape of your choice with a removable, heavily encrusted pearl belt and the ties located on the sleeves allow you to vary the length. Perfect for a wedding, a cover up on the beach or lunch with the girls, this maxi is the ultimate in femininity.
Ghost was acquired by Touker Suleyman (Hawes & Curtis) in 2012 and is returning to the forefront of fashion with its classic pieces such as this dove grey Alma coat, perfect for Royal Ascot or a special occasion. Over the years I have bought many Ghost pieces and I am excited that the brand is developing and establishing a new core Ghost customer.
Jewellery is never far from my mind and I found Jessica Naylor-Leyland's pieces when a friend of a friend was wearing a similar necklace. She explained the 'Set in Stone' piece was spelling out her name by precious stones. In that instance I pulled out my iPad and began to navigate the website. With a name as long as mine, I need to be patient before I can claim a necklace as beautiful and clever such as this. Although it isn't just names you can set in stone, it would also be a way of sending a hidden message to a special person.
I have eyelashes which feel like they were straightened from birth. I have tried almost every mascara which promises curls and they have never managed to shape them. However a few months ago I found Eyeko and I actually have movement!! Favoured by celebrity MUAs such as Lisa Eldridge and Kay Montano, Eyeko blends a unique ingredient list with a technical brush to lift and curls lashes while conditioning at the same time. If you want a more tailored approach to your eye make up, definitely take a look at the Eyeko collection.
To allow you a closer view of these covetable pieces, I have pinned everything I have featured to my #shwishlist pinterest board. If you would like to recommend a brand or item, email: firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet me with the hashtag #shwishlist.
