25 Dec

Happy Christmas everyone! I hope you are all having a lovely day with your families, eating lots, drinking lots and  generally being very merry. I will be spending the day rustling up breakfast for the family – about 10 of us – and watching movies while the parentals see to a huge Christmas feast. It’s lovely when the whole family gets together, as we’ve all grown up it happens far too infrequently. Make sure you enjoy the day xx



There’s always such a big build up to Christmas, it’s very tempting to spend a couple of days recovering, slobbing out and eating leftovers. That is most certainly not what I will be doing on Boxing Day. I’ll be up nice and early, creeping out of the house for the sales. I know most of them started before Christmas, but it’s a little wrong to be snapping up bargains before the big day’s over. It can be all too tempting to buy something, anything, just because it’s cheap. My preferred tactic is to either stock up on classic pieces (hello Zara trousers) or next year’s trends. It’s easier to buy shapes or colours which to form the basis of your wardrobe. Of course there won’t be lots of lovely floaty summer stuff about but quite a few Autumn/Winter trends made the transition to the Spring/Summer catwalk. There was lashing of black, tough biker touches as seen at Burberry, lightweight knits and cropped leather trousers a la Balmain. The latter is right at the top of my sale wish list. The other Spring/Summer 2011 trends I’m looking forward to are



Sheer – Alberta Ferretti
White – Alexander Wang
70s – Marc Jacobs
Brights – Jil Sander
Midi – Bottega Veneta
White lace – Alberta Ferretti
