I don't think we've already done this, but the weather is miserable today and it's freezing so I'm in the mood to compile my wishlist for autumn/winter. Lost a bit of weight since last year and ebayed all my old stuff so starting pretty much from scratch. After some inspiration really as don't have much on my list so far:

Barbour Kate or Bedale with Liberty print lining
Ankle boots (probably the Topshop pistol-a-likes)
Coloured skinnies - in deep wine/plum and maybe forest green
A silk blouse to go with skinnies (Whistles maybe)
An Alex Monroe necklace
An 'investment' bag - maybe a deer brown grainy Mulberry Lily
Going to knit myself a massive chunky snood, gloves and hat in some nice Rowan Merino
Nail polish in some nice autumny/wintry colours - what's in this year? (Saw a thing on greens in Grazia)

What's on your wishlist?

(Plus some cosy Boden pull-ons but not sure they count as S+B...)

Sun just arrived here finally but

Deep plum cord skinnies Jbrand
Bright angora Acne
Plaid kilt
Possibly black skinnies - Proenza S
Something from MSGM not sure yet
Boot - ankle or knee but not pistols as had them already
A Maje blue skirt
A big knit

Love the sound of the cord skinnies, nice alternative to regular denim. Will investigate. Also love the idea of the plaid kilt but not sure if I'd feel a little 'school uniform' in it as I still I have mine from when I was a good catholic school girl!

MarshaBrady Wed 01-Aug-12 15:16:09

J brand cords. Really rich deep plum.

There are some very expensive Marc Jacobs hand crochet scarves around which I'm sure could be done at home.

My AW wardrobe wish list is always:
jumpers- twinsets + crew neck in soft wool, faux cashmere or chenille. Navy, red, crea, chocolate brown, wine red

I'm not a fan of coloured skinnies but I'd like some cord jeggings or ski-pants.

And I've already got my puffy winter coat in bronzey/fawn. smile

MrsCampbellBlack Wed 01-Aug-12 15:19:09

I like your list MrsRyan.

I got some burgundy j brand jodhpurs in the sale and have pistols which I'm planning on wearing a lot.

Really want a navy and burgundy cashmere jumpers and possibly a new winter coat.

A nice winter dress which would be good but always struggle to find casual ones.

70isaLimitNotaTarget Wed 01-Aug-12 15:19:43

And this could be the year in invest in some Not Your Daughterss Jeans.

I'm hoping greens are going to be big news this AW. I look good in green. grin

I bought some lovely burgundy skinnies a few weeks ago, then broke my ankle the same day! Can't wait to get the cast on and start trying on some ankle boots to wear them with.

perplexedpirate Wed 01-Aug-12 15:27:53

Cast off, I mean.

MrsCampbellBlack Wed 01-Aug-12 15:31:04

Lots of green in the September issues

LaBelleDamesansTurkey Wed 01-Aug-12 15:35:13

I hate burgundy. What am I going to do?

Lizzylou Wed 01-Aug-12 15:36:30

I have some burgundy skinnies already.
What colour Pistol-alikes to go with?

I hate green, very much not my colour.

MrsRyanLochte Wed 01-Aug-12 15:38:45

I am in love with the J brand cords, thank you for linking MarshaBrady - such a beautiful colour, hopefully they will appear on shopbop at some point

MrsCampbellBlack Wed 01-Aug-12 15:40:43

I'll wear my black pistols with burgundy skinnies - or think there will be a lot of navy suede ankle boots around as well which would look good.

There'll be loads of jewel colours around as there are every winter so navy/greens/reds

MrsRyanLochte Wed 01-Aug-12 15:41:45

I was going to go with the tan ones Lizzy but was also thinking about getting the black too to go with some black skinny trousers (like the look of these in black for work)

Lizzylou Wed 01-Aug-12 16:23:50

Love those MrsRyanLochte (though am jealous at your DH, phwoar!).

I may have to get black and tan boots.

It has been a barren few years clotheswise for me, I am worth it <<swishes hair>>

DonaAna Wed 01-Aug-12 16:43:45

Something burgundy - perhaps the oxford wedges I found today.

AmberNectarine Wed 01-Aug-12 17:08:51

Current Elliott grey leopard cords
Ash Bowie wedge trainers in cobalt
Cobalt Maje glittery knit
Russell & Bromley brogue boots
Current Elliott star print skinnies
LKB Davina
Anya H Joss purse

Well, that's my return to work bonus taken care of...

I went AW12 shopping today! And bought a really fab Marni-a-like coat in Cos, grey sleeveless unlined wool, with a zip. Might have to go to Marni itself to get some long-sleeved print blouses to go underneath it, though. And I think it needs some boots, too...

Also bought two pairs of "basic" winter trousers, one khaki and one navy blue, in Sofie d'Hoore (who cuts the best, most flattering trousers ever - worth every euro as they are totally timeless and I always wear her trousers to the death). And four sets of new season underwear in Princesse Tam Tam.

I need some flat comfortable every day ankle boots - Tod's or Hogan.

anon80 Wed 01-Aug-12 17:42:29

yep in colours for this year seem to be going towards burgundy, plums and greens : ) some good list above

DonaAna Wed 01-Aug-12 17:43:33

Bonsoir I think I saw that coat today at COS. Lovely <proud owner and happy user of Marni coats>

Bonsoir Wed 01-Aug-12 18:10:55

I looked for it on the Cos website but it's not on there (yet). I've done quite well this year bargain coat wise as I have worn and worn the Marni @ H&M navy thin summer parka (was just the year for it) and also bought and love the black spotted Marni @ H&M evening coat. And I still have my last year's Marni khaki duvet cape, which looks great (though I am slightly bored of it... blush).
