Clothing Cauldron: Bullets, Leather and Winkles

Okay, I have been doing a lot of want lists lately. Since I’ve tried to limit the amount I spend on clothes, make-up and pretty much everything that takes my fancy (thank god for free stuff on the internet to numb my boredom) I’ve been lusting after a lot more than I can contain. And so, here it is (well, a little more at least) for all of us to share – in the hopes it’ll get off my want list soon.

Bullet Belts! I’ve been craving a bullet belt for months now. My use of belts has been insane in recent weeks, but all I can find are in-trend, thin waist belts. I want something thick like a mans belt (I’ve been resorting to using Coen’s nice quality belts actually). Though, I probably wouldn’t wear a bullet belt often it would definately be something awesome to show off as decoration (along with my corsets, top-hat, neck-corset, shawls and ridiculous amount of kitchy scarves).

A fitted leather skirt has been on my wishlist for so long! I could have bought one instead of my striped black and white skirt (you can see here and here) but I don’t regret buying it at all, since I wear it a lot! I have my leather circle skirt, which I wear at least once a fortnight, but I need more dammit!

If you’ve seen this post, you’ll understand that I need new shoes (to be honest, through my continued use they’re gotten worse). Here in my part of Australia it’s heating up, flowers are blooming and my favourite time of the year is well on its way (Spring!) and it’s just become obvious that I may not be able to wear my same-ole Docs everyday in that heat.

On the note of shoes, winkle-pickers! I’m always complaining (well, in my head) about never having any more feminine shoes to wear with longer skirts. I think winklepickers are the ultimate medium. They hold the masculine boot, and the feminine point, with a nice little heal. Plus, they should be moderately comfortable after a (long) while.

What material things are you craving from the deepest pits of your inner being? I might just add them to my cauldron for next time.

    i don't know what happened to my fitted leather skirt, but i know i need another one. especially if you want a bullet belt. They're kind of heavy and I wear them with the bullets down and low on my hips, so they constantly stab me! not with a leather skirt though or heavy denim

    Winklepickers! Drools!
    If I could get anything now I think I would get one of those ruffled stiff collars because I just adore them a la Lucy in Bram Stoker's Dracula, but I think they only work with equally high quality clothing, and so would need a whole outfit. Hey , I can still dream though!

    I pretty much agree with your wishlist. I would love a bullet belt, and some new shoes are always welcome. And there is so much more on my wishlist, oops. Hihi.
