I'm no stranger to shopping, I have quite an unhealthy addiction to it. If I could, I would definitely be a 'woman who lunched' and shopped at the designer end of the street.
This may sound ridiculous but one of my favourite past times is to sit and put together designer wish lists of things that I would love to buy, and one day hopefully treat myself to.
It's a friday night hobby over a glass of red wine.
I'm hoping to book a holiday away in June, somewhere nice and sunny. I have put together some of the things I would personally include in my suitcase - if money were no option.
I like to wear a maxi dress on holiday and I love this 1. patchwork silk dress by Vilshenko, I would pair this dress with 2. these Ancient Greek Sandals , 3. mini black bag by 3.1 Phillip Lim and these 4. gorgeous sunnies by Lara Bohinc.
Bright coloured bikinis are a must, I take a selection on holiday as I often go about wearing the bikini tops with shorts and skirts out and about, I particularly love this 5. pink bikini by the London based design duo Heidi Gosman and Penny Klein.
At night I always make the effort to dress up, even if I am covered in midgie bites, sunburn and have panda eyes from my sunglasses, I feel it makes dinner and cocktails more special - especially if my husband and I are lucky enough to be away on a 'child free holiday', god love them but it is nice to have some alone time.
My typical choice of evening wear would be a maxi gown like this 6. beautiful gown by Cédric Charlier, bright sunny colour, very chic and to accessorise I would keep it simple with 7. an elegant clutch by Anndra Neen, 8. some sandals by Aperlai and my favourite 9. the statement piece of jewellery, I am adoring this Edun gold plated cow horn cuff which actually is the cheapest part of the wish list at only £65, I may even go and buy this now :-)
What do you think of my Avenue 32 wish list? Are your tastes similar to mine? I would like to see everyones designer wish lists so if you are reading this I tag you do do it and send me your links below or tweet me them @laurziecooper.
