Brand Lust: Miss Rebel A/W Wish List

As of yesterday, I feel that Winter weather has well and truly arrived. I had to travel back home from Halloween shenanigans having left my coat at a friends, and boy was I feeling the chill. 

In the last two months, I think we've all been sitting on the uncomfortable fence between getting the most out of our Summer clothes before they're shoved away for another year, and excitingly purchasing our new Autumn / Winter wardrobe. 

Through The Blogger Programme, I have been introduced to a new and emerging clothing brand: Miss Rebel.

I love discovering small brands like these simply because they prove that on-trend fashion can be reasonably priced. I've seen some brands that I fell in love with back in the day get way to big for their boots, so when a brand like Miss Rebel emerges, I pounce on them straight away, and spread the word. 

So I've put together a little wishlist from Miss Rebel's latest A/W 2014 collection just to show you what they have to offer and to inspire you, if not to check them out, then to get looking for small, emerging brands and to support them.

Outfit of the Day: Autumnal Hues


Primark Fedora Hat - £8
H&M Dappled Purple Split-Hem Maxi Dress -(sold out) 

It's been so long since I last did an Outfit of the Day post, which I apologise for. I also want to apologise for the fact that almost half of the items I'm wearing in this post are now sold out. I only bought the dress two weeks ago, and the other dress I bought with it is still on their site, so I was a bit baffled by that. 

Anyhoo, despite that, I hope this post has been in some way a source of style inspiration. I'm not adjusting very well to Winter layering after a good 4-5 months of a basic capsule Summer wardrobe. 

I'm loving the long open-knit cardigans that are about at the moment. I've never really been a cardigan person, but the casual yet textured blanket styles that I'm seeing are more my kind of thing. 

I love split-hems, and I'm trying to make mine as winter friendly as possible with the help of some statement tights, however on those really cold days, I'm layering up with as many opaque pairs as I can find. 

I don't think I'll ever tire of these River Island Cut-Out Boots. They're from River Island's Autumn/Winter  2013/14 collection, and I can't get enough when it comes to chunky black shoes, so these will probably be staying with me for life. 

I may be a bit late on the hype, but I've fallen head over heels in love with Forever 21. Whenever I step foot in their i'm never disappointed by the range of trends they have on offer, and they're not expensive at all, so you can expect to see a lot more of their stuff on here in the not too distant future.
