1. LAZY OAF CROP TOP 2. LASHES OF LONDON DRESS 3. LASHES OF LONDON BRALET 4. ASOS SHOES 5. ASOS HEELS 6. CROWN AND GLORY HAIRCLIP 7. SUGARHILL BOUTIQUE DRESS 8. KASTOR & POLLUX SKIRT 9. SHELLYS OF LONDON FLATS 10. BAIT FOOTWEAR SHOES

Hello beauts! As you have probably noticed - Mermaidens has been rather quiet lately; I was working on a big commission, which I'm happy to say I'm done with now! :D I'm going to be rebleaching and dyeing my hair (as it currently looks terrible), and then show you the backlog of outfits I've been meaning to post! In the meantime, I thought it would be fun to share what I've been wishing for lately!

I'm kind of swooning over all things metallic and lilac (or pastels in general, but what else is new?) - and it's making me so excited for Spring! Already there is a warmer breeze and flowers are popping up in my backyard - and I'm dreaming of wearing slightly warmer things; like bralets and crop tops! This bralet by Lashes of London has me swooning but is sold out in my size both on their official site and ASOS - sob! I'm also loving this cheeky crop top by Lazy Oaf!

And of course, this number by Sugarhill Boutique is my dream dress (the most marvelous shade of mint and milkshakes?! Be still my heart); the skirt by Kastor & Pollux (a store run by blogging dynamos Dani & Bianca) is holographic perfection; and the floral hairclip by Crown and Glory is perfect for Spring!

Phew! I'm sorry, I just love clothes u___u What's on your Spring wishlist? (♡ᴥ♡)

  4. I'm crazy for colorful fabrics... Really, anything from Soul-Flower. A little hippie, a little free spirited. I am also loving crocheted shawls in gorgeous pastel colors.

  5. I want everything up there!! I've been having a similar love affair with silver metallics/dusty, pale pastels too. Just found a lace lilac '40s gown which I'm planning to wear with my silver tap heels ^.^

  9. I have that Sugarhill Boutique dress and it is just as lovely in person (even more so, maybe)! And those Shellys of London flats were actually on sale(!) at Anthropologie right now (I only know because I may have ordered them....) but they may be gone now. :( Excellent, dreamy picks as always!

  13. Such a dreamy wishlist! I'm in love with all the new metallic & holographic shoes that are on asos right now, too. <3

    I've also become so obsessed with those Lashes of London pieces you mentioned on twitter that I'm actually going to try re-creating them (in this fabric: http://www.ebay.com/itm/380249185869)! *_* If I'm successful I'll make you one too. ^_^

  41. I have those shoes! Asos had a holographic silver version in the winter and I got the last pair in a size 6, they make my feet bleed if I don't wear socks :( BUT SO PRETTY! I love the milkshake print dress but I don't like the back closure, I hate when that happens.
