My weekly wishlist 02/02/2013

I'm feeling quite monochromous (monochromy? Either way I just invented a new word) this week. Fashion seems to be at one end of the colour scale or the other at the moment with spring pastels fighting an ongoing battle with black and white.

This sixties style dress is an absolute bargain from Peacocks (£22), and would be a great addition to any work wear wardrobe. Although it may seem a bit premature to be looking for light summery dresses, the heavy fabric ensures that it can be worn all year round, and the versatile colour scheme lends itself well to a marriage with black tights, until the summer is really here.

Peter Pan style collars are everywhere at the moment, and fortunately this is one trend that doesn't require an expensive wardrobe revamp. Most high street stores are selling stand-alone collars, allowing you to jazz up your pre-existing clobber. From pearls to lace, dainty to chunky, there is something for every style, but my personal favourite is the pearl beaded collar from New Look (£7.99).

Sticking with the monochrome theme, I've had a hankering for a wide brim black fedora hat all winter - a side effect from an autumnal overdose of Made in Chelsea, I believe- and although this beauty from Topshop is my ideal purchase, it'll be a while before I can justify spending £32 on a hat.

Last but by no means least is the gorgeous Eiffel Tower, an absolute bargain at £3.10 from Forever 21, my new favourite store, It doesn't work too well with the monochrome backdrop, but a girl needs a little colour in her life, and with Valentine's Day fast approaching, what could be cuter?
