Reiss Christmas wishlist

Reiss is one of my favourite British brands. It is effortlessly cool and sleek without being pretentious. I find myself reaching for my Reiss silk blouses more and more, especially around Christmas as a bustling social calendar makes it important to go from day to night with minimal conversion effort (read: look glam by changing in the office bathroom cubicle)!

So imagine my delight when they announced a new Christmas wishlist giveaway. All you have to do is create and submit a wishlist on their website and they will pick a winner each week betwen now and Christmas! Yay, indeed.

Here is my wishlist. I have submitted it and have crossed all my fingers and toes, and lit every make-a-wish candle I have ever bought from every psychic I have ver visited. THIS is certainly what I want for Christmas!

Make your own wishlist here, and don’t forget to brag if you win!

Shoe of the day: Diane von Furstenberg

These boots are called Keith. I wish Keith would be my feet boyfriend.

It is very, very cold in London right now and it’s always pretty wet. The time of year has come when any other type of shoe just simply will not cut it; my feet need boots.

And Keith are the finest example of boot on the playground right now. Let’s face it, no one can handle heels everyday, but Keith is stylish enough to make up for the casual lack-of-heel.

Unlike a decent boyfriend, Keith can be yours for a mere £303.26 from Farfetch.

Cheers Diane.

In just 13-odd hours, the oh-so-fabulous Mary Katrantzou will launch her website and e-commerce platform, and I will kiss goodbye to my savings.

This is the designer’s much awaited foray into independent retailing, and hopefully a first step towards AN ACTUAL REAL LIFE MK SHOP!

Mary told Vogue that the website has been A YEAR in the making, so we should expect great things. Appaz, us admirers will be able to buy from an “exclusive, limited-edition range taken from the label’s debut resort collection”. I for one am trés excited- I have a holiday to the tropics coming up and it certainly will not be complete without some MK Resort wear.

So, what do we think, cheries? Yay or nay, to MK?

 

 

 

Wish list: LEATHER

Because it’s Monday, and it’s about to get really friggin’ cold in London, I decided to compile a list of warm leather pieces that will not only keep you warm; they will keep you DRY!

Since moving from the tropics to The Big Smoke, leather has been my best friend, helping me keep the wind and the rain from my ill-accustomed bones.  So, lucky me, it’s a SUPER TREND right now!

Leather doesn’t get any better than All Saints, and this oxblood shrunken biker is ULTRA! It costs as much as rent, but is so worth it! £398 from allsaints.com

This Oasis quilted leather mini is RYCH. Just retro enough to keep a girl happy, but edgy enough to join a biker gang. Love. £80, available from Oasis

Markus Lupfer’s merino (LUSH) jumper with the sequined lips on it will make any leather look a million times cooler. And any reference to Rocky Horror Picture Show is alright with me. £315, from net-a-porter

Acne is my latest obsession, they are simply too cool for school. This bag comes in two sizes, the the tiny one is just simply darling, non? It’s a snip at £500 from shop.acnestudios.com/

And those red leather biker pants, from The H&M Collaboration That Shall Not Be Named…my one true love. As the poet Cher once said: “If I could turn back time…”…I would certainly make this my priority in that crazy rush sale!
