Goss Lust List: Lilac Loving

Goss.ie Editor Kendra Becker is listing a few of her favourite things...


This week for my Goss Lust List, I’m focusing on my absolute favourite colour for summer – lilac.

In my opinion, lilac is the perfect shade to add a pop of colour to any outfit – whether it be a bag, a bracelet, or even your nail colour!

So without further adieu, here’s what I’m lilac loving at the moment…

ASOS DESIGN Velvet Crop Bikini

If you have a holiday booked and are looking for a funky bikini to rock on the beach – then look no further.

This velvet high-waisted bikini from ASOS is guaranteed to turn heads, and is great for those with a bigger bust.

I always find the colour lilac makes your tan look a lot darker too, so it’s a no-brainer really!

Pick the top up here for €24.89, and the bottoms here for the same price.

New Look Cat Eye Sunglasses 

Sunglasses are the perfect accessory to add a pop of colour to any outfit, and these lilac sunnies are right up my street.

I personally love the cat eye style, and I find they don’t create that annoying mark on the bridge of your nose – which always RUINS my makeup.

This pair are only €11.05 from New Look. You can purchase them here.

REVOLVE Bardot Bea Wrap Dress

Lilac is a gorgeous colour to wear to a summer wedding, and we’ve found the perfect dress for the occasion.

I came across this on Revolve’s website, and I just think the satin crepe fabric is so pretty.

In my opinion, you can never go wrong with a wrap dress as they’re always super comfortable to wear, and very flattering around your waist.

You can pick it up here for €127.

CND Shellac Lilac Longing

I got my nails done last week, and the colour I chose actually inspired the subject of my Lust List this week.

I always get my gel nail extensions done at Leeson Beauty with Dublin’s best nail tech Suzana Kutlesa, and the colour we picked this week was CND Shellac shade ‘Lilac Longing’.

I actually wanted a lighter lilac colour, so Suzy kindly mixed it with some white – and we achieved the perrrrrfect shade.

If you’re able to your own shellac, you can pick up the shade here. Otherwise, I highly recommend booking in with Leeson Beauty here.

Vans Old Skool Shoes

I’m a huge fan of Vans, and I’ve only just discovered this pair of Old Skool’s in lilac – and it’s pretty safe to say I’m obsessed.

You can never go wrong with this style in my opinion, and I think this pair would look amazing at any festival this year.

You can get them here for €80.

H&M Fitted Silk-Blend Dress

I visited the H&M Showroom in Dublin last week, and this dress instantly caught my eye.

Ideal for a summer night out or a glam occasion, this dress is exclusive to H&M’s new Conscious Collection – which boasts pieces made from sustainably-sourced materials, such as 100% organic cotton, Tencel or recycled polyester.

Sustainability has become one of H&M’s core values, and the brand hope to use only 100% recycled or other sustainably-sourced materials by 2030.

This was definitely one of my favourite pieces from the collection, and it looked even nicer in person! You can pick it up here for €89.99.

Mango Croc-Effect Mini Bag

I definitely couldn’t complete this list without including a cute lilac bag – and I found a particularly gorgeous one.

This crocodile effect mini bag from Mango is so pretty, and would be lovely paired with a little white dress, or even a white suit.

You can get it here for €35.99.
