Alexander McQueen Wish List*

I have been seriously lusting after some of the new Alexander McQueen pieces that are being stocked at Harvey Nichols so decided to create a wish list. Like typical Alexander McQueen pieces they embody strength with fragility and the lace jacquard silk blend dress is a prime example of this. The lace is just stunning and it has a dragonfly motif blended in it, that also (to me) resembles a rib cage fitting in with the strength and fragile themes. The prices are completely out of my range but a girl can dream.

I have decided to put two outfits together with some of the items I would love in my wardrobe. The first I have entitled 'Pretty but Strong'. The lace dress can be worn as a day dress but also dressed up as an evening dress with heels. The added skulls through the ring and sandals gives this outfit that strong slightly rebellious look. As you have probably guessed from my style I like to add a bit of quirkyness to my outfits and the skulls is just the right amount to still keep this dress pretty.

2. Skull Embellished Leather Sandals
3. Bird and Skull Ring

The second is 'Power Print' and this dress is my favourite piece from the collection. The print is bold, bright and powerful something you expect from Alexander McQueen. It is perfect for a statement dress on a night out and the pale pink shoes and bag compliment it perfectly buy not being to fussy.

2. Skull Embellished Leather Pumps
3. Leather Clutch

Now while I carry on dreaming about having these pieces in my wardrobe I will leave you with a question. What designers items would you love to own and why?
