Fashion must-haves on Lyst.
For those of us who have benefited from the perks of online shopping, we know oh so well what its like to spend our sweet time being productive while knowing we are not depriving ourselves of a little indulgence from time to time minus the hassle of the metro traffic or combing through endless aisles of dress racks and lines of shoes. While others may justify the hours of walking in malls, that’s just not for me anymore since I’ve learned to shop online. If it’s workout I’m after, I can turn the a workout video on easily right at the comfort of my own home. No time wasted on commute, zero carbon footprint and all win for the ever busy me. 🙂
There are a whole bunch of fashion sites on the world wide web, I know. But what sets Lyst apart, for me, is my ability to flag any item I find pricey and I get notified when that piece is on sale or is affordable at another shop. The ability to track specific fashion pieces of my choice and getting a feedback when they hit the store – now that’s beyond valuable, don’t you think?
Here are some of the pieces I’ve bookmarked away and a couple I’m looking into purchasing soon – they’re already on sale! Yay!
I love all Adrianna Pepell designs. They’re all so feminine, stylish and dainty. I have in fact one Adriana Pepell floral print stashed away in my closet that I won’t dare use anymore. Let’s just say, I need to lose a couple of pounds or so. 🙂
What I specifically love about this particular Adrianna Papell Floral Matelassé Fit & Flare Dress are the metallic thread accents that intensify the luminous glow of the already charming party frock designed with a demure, cap-sleeve top and structured seaming down the flared skirt. What’s not to love!
Coast Amalfi Print Adrie Maxi Petite
I’ve recently bookmarked this pretty Coast Amalfi Print Adrie Maxi Petite Dress. I’m currently working on waist training and (got myself size S), so that’s a good thing. I might be able to rock this piece soon! It’s also tagged at £119.00. Hopefully, it’ll be on sale then. 🙂
Marques’ Almeida Frayed Brocade Jacket
I know! My drift is so predictable! I love florals and Lyst has the widest collections of the good ones. This Marques’ Almeida’s Spring ’16 collection is inspired by singer-songwriter Fiona Apple – “the garments evoke fragility and romance without losing the rough and ready edge.” This jacket is cut from olive, forest-green and bubblegum floral-patterned brocade left unlined for crisp structure and has a lightly frayed raw hem. This jacket can easily be mixed and matched over slip dresses.
Vero Moda Stripe Fringe Trim Kimono
Just when I thought trim kimonos are so last season, here’s one that will totally negate it. Now, if I’d be realistic, this is the one that best fit our humid metro weather. I love how this would spell s.t.y.l.e. without trying hard. It’s on sale at £15.00 but I’m waiting for it to re-stock!
Studded Flat Gladiator Sandals Black
Much like the kimonos, gladiators aren’t a thing of the past just yet. This pretty pair retails for €35.00 only! The marriage of comfy and stylish in a footwear.
Call it a habit but I’ve never really gotten over my fondness for open-toe clogs from the time I was in college. It is the most comfy for me and sleek. This Dolce Vita Vanesa Open-Toe Clog has traces of tonal stitching and essentially a leather bootie, anchored on a stacked heel with industrial staple giving it a sophisticated look.
Lyst is on iOS
