I haven't bought most of them yet, but:

- felted wool biker jacket (probably the toast one)
- flat ankle boots, yet to be found, but probably chelsea boots, lace up DM type boots or maybe ankle biker boots
- leather leggings (I WILL find some that aren't black that are actually within my budget)
- Oversized cashmere/merino sweater or sweater dress

Well, I just cleared out my wardrobe (moth related issues and general "I'm so OVER these clothes" clearout) so I'm getting new stuff (at some point) and want to do it right, get good quality that suits me and fits rather than random crap that I begrudge wearing.

- New Coat. I want something tailored, in black, that's very warm and is not polyester
- 2/3 skirts that are knee length. Maybe one pencil, one a-line and one other
- 2xpolo neck jumper for when I can't be arsed
- berry coloured round-neck jumper (I'm all about round neck jumpers this year)
- high heeled boots
- nice heels.

Ooh! I found my other skirt (possibly) whistles the burgundy lace one

Shoeprincss2 I have

This skirt and the jumper

The blazer was from New look!! Really good fit too and was only £35! not on their website im afraid but its the best blazer ive found, Ive been looking for about 4-5 months now at all prices and what do you know.....New look!

The tops I have are simple ones like This I have them in Navy Blue, Plum. Teal and Dark Green, I wear them with my tweed skirt, brown/black/burgundy or grey tights, a chuncky knit scarf thats brown, diamond earrings,simple but pretty make up and some times a necklace and when ever I go out like it, I look plain and simple but well put together and Im always complimented : )

Hope thats helped abit

I'm hankering for some graphic print tailored trousers. Or some tweed ones like these splendid but pricey Philip Lim ones

Brothel creepers or some low, flat chelsea boots.

a tux jacket

I shall continue to wheel out my belted wax Barbour international as I still have a lotta love for it.

lots of mahoosivee statement necklaces as a lot of waht I'm wearing this season seems quite bloke-esque.

I lurve autumn.

Liking the sound of all of these ladies!

Hopefully I have just invested in some DM's as I like you was on the hunt. In the end I found them in tkmaxx for a bargain £35 so that sorted my dilemma. Hasn't stopped me looking at others though.... Seems I'm never happy.

I just had my new next catalogue arrive today and I'm actually liking a fair amount of this seasons items!

regnamechange Tue 25-Sep-12 16:32:56

Also on the hunt for big jewellery!

DiscretionGuaranteed Tue 25-Sep-12 16:42:06

I got a Melton Military coat (double breasted) in the Jigsaw sale. No idea why they'd put it in the end-of-summer sale hmm but I'm not complaining - it is luffly, perfect fit and colour for me, and 139 quid is a good price for a wool (mix) coat. I plan to wear it until the temperature drops down to North Face levels.

Ra ra skirts
Rainbow striped toe socks
Loon pants
And Bustles are featuring heavily this season

I also have my eye on a rather fetching gold lame catsuit

Meggles76 Tue 25-Sep-12 16:50:18

This A/W I think I shall mostly be wearing:
Tweed shorts and black opaques
Teal cashmere jumper
wine coloured skinnys
fitted denim shirt
beige stripe breton top
black boucle jacket
black heeled ankle boots (still looking for right pair)
black parka coat
