Skydiving, swimming with sharks, going on safari reads like a rather exciting bucket list doesnt it? Seemingly not ours, however, since a national survey has revealed our somewhat simple tastes as a nation when it comes to ticking off our must-sees and dos before we die.
Top of the list is eating fish and chips on a pier, with watching a box set of Only Fools And Horses not far behind.
Not content to settle for a ferry ride across the Mersey (yes, really), and all in the name of aspiration, weve compiled ELLEs Fashion Bucket List. From the practical to the imaginary and the downright absurd, were dreaming big.

It's a fantasy, really, about wearing a pair of jogging bottoms, sweatshirt and trainers to the New York shows where everyone is immaculate. NOT in a fashionable sports luxe way. I mean total rejection of any style, plus scraggy hair and no make-up. This is basically what I look like when I write about fashion at home JUST KIDDING!!!!!
Bucket List Interview: Miuccia Prada (but not backstage done that. Ideally, we're driving in her vintage car to some glamorous party a la Gatsby and she's giving me her most revealing interview ever)
Bucket List Shopping: To be able to place any order for anything at the shows and have it delivered to hotel (but the price list is dreamlike affordable)
Bucket List Wardrobe: Where there's always something I want to wear, and it looks good, and there are no shoe issues.
Kirsty Dale Executive Fashion Director
A shoe in every colour, heel height and style that magically appears forth (i.e. no rummaging through boxes in the bottom of my wardrobe!) when you've decided on an outfit. Oh, and some genius micro-sized underskirt heater for chilly days when you want a bare leg.

Fantasy Bucket: I would really love to experience actually owning a piece of couture. The process fascinates me from start to finish. Going to a show in Paris (Dior), picking out look, salon appointment, fittings, handing down to fantasy daughter.
God only knows where I would wear such a magical creature.
Helpful Bucket: Would be a wardrobe full of amazing high-heeled shoes that I can run in.
Harriet Stewart Market Editor
Every morning as I weep into my lean-in wardrobe to try to find something to wear I dream of a walk-in wardrobe big enough to satisfy all of my wildest OCD dreams. Maybe Ill get one of those rotating rails from Clueless too. Heck, Ill take her clothes as well.

It would be nice to have a designer name a bag after me.
'Oh, look at her, shes carrying a Molly'

I would like to own a bespoke Valentino dress, don't want to be greedy, one should be more than enough. Maybe I can even get married in it. Valentino dress + fantastic fabulous man = SORTED!

Matching hangers. I'll know I'm a grown up when I have matching hangers.
Chloe Bloch Fashion Assistant
It would be great to have a full-look-only wardrobe for many reasons but number one it would take the what I am I going to wear today problem out of the equation.
Kenke Danmole Fashion Assistant
I would love to own every novelty bag that exists. I love quirky. A Chanel milk carton bag and Anya Hindmarch Daz clutch will fit right into my wardrobe and work as an art pieces in my future 'Wardrobe Gallery' (another thing I must create in my lifetime).
