What we love, we're not sure about, we're buying and can't wait for...

We love...

Leapfrog

The Audit will be acting its shoe size rather than its age in these retro wellies inspired by the goggle-eyed frog boots that were the height of cool in the playgrounds of yore. Available for pre-order now, they're perfectly timed for puddle leaping. £24.99, thewellyshop.com

We're not sure about...

Cindy's clothes

Regular visitors to the continent will know that although C&A may have disappeared from our shores, it's certainly not dead and buried. Despite its European cachet, the department store is still a surprising choice to launch Cindy Crawford's clothing line.

We're buying…

Specs appeal

Who says that guys don't make passes at girls who wear glasses? Venerable Savile Row label Hardy Amies has just launched a refined collection of spectacles and sunglasses for men and women that embody the house's refined craftsmanship. £270, hardyamieseyewear.com

We can't wait for...

FNO

When it comes to shopping, it seems we don't need much encouragement – Vogue's Fashion's Night Out turns four this week. A host of London retailers have something special planned for the economy boosting initiative on Thursday, such as this Jonathan Saunders T-shirt designed exclusively for Gap. £18, gap.eu

We're saving up for…

Mother, may I?

Every season, ultra-luxe label Mother of Pearl asks a different designer to channel its sportswear aesthetic. For autumn/winter it's the turn of American Fred Tomaselli, known for his highly detailed paintings and collages on wooden panels. Shirt £345, jacket £790, avenue32.com
