Sorely Tempted

I receive far too many email updates and newsletters from online stores. Every day, a little bit of temptation drops into my inbox. Earlier, I was informed of a revamp at shopbop.com, so off I went for a look around. As if I hadn't already looked at enough shoe boots this week, I found these twee little granny boots with 70% off - and, in my size! I love pointy brogue boots, but should I really be preparing for winter already? Am I only tempted because of the discount?

Then I came across this beautiful beaded tunic from Antik Batik, with 50% off. Again, I am sorely tempted. It's so pretty, but not in an in your face, full on sparkle-fest, bling bling way. It's an awkward length for me (like most tunics) ...could I get away with wearing it as a dress? Or could I tuck it into a high-waisted skirt?

...And off to net-a-porter, the biggest online source of desire and heart-break. Here are 3 items new in this week which caught my eye. Firstly, this insane almost scary looking pair of heels from Guiseppe Zanotti. Call me crazy, but when I first saw them they reminded me of the Mighty Boosh Black Frost character. Something to do with the sinister spike shapes and the black ice sparkles.

Guiseppe Zanotti - £890

Then, something less dramatic but equally desirable. These monochrome Louboutins are quite simply gorgeous. I can think of loads of outfits I'd pair them with. Not quite as pricey as the Zanottis, but still too expensive for me to feel comfortable buying.

Christian Louboutin - £620

Finally, a really unique, eye-catching blouse from a label I've not come across before. Willow are the makers of this chiffon delight. I can't decide whether I love it or just think it's plain odd, but the colour is lovely and the layers of chiffon petals add a special touch to the piece.

Willow - £310

The color on the chiffon sweater is gorgeous. I think I'd prefer it worn more casual to downplay the piece.

Love Grace.

That top is absolutely amazing. I would totally do it with a pair of super dark wash high - waist denim in the fall.
