Weekly Wish List Returns!

Yes, after what seems like a very long time, La Petite Weekly Wish List is BACK! Between fashion week, moving house (foolishly right before fashion week) and developing a rather expensive taxi habit while in New York, I’ve had precious little time or money to spend revamping my Autumn/Winter wardrobe. Well, now fashion month is drawing to a close, my student loan is impending and I’m oh-so-ready to hit the shops. And what better way to get in the mood for a new season spree than by compiling a selection of my favourite new season togs?

Tods No Code

5 Minutes With… Paige Adams Geller

There are certain items of clothing that really stick in a girl’s mind.
