Christmas Wishlist

There’s only one month to go til Christmas! Although that’s still ages, I thought I’d give you all some ideas of what I’m lusting after, to maybe whet your appetite a bit for your own Christmas wishlist…

Christmas Wishlist
This turquoise Zara dress caught my eye while I was shopping with a friend, and I’ve not been able to get it out of my head since then! Surely I need a new Christmas party dress, no?
I’ve been lusting after these black suede Oasis boots for a few months now – I think they’d go so well with so many wintery outfits, and would be a great way to glam up a jumper-skirt-and-wooly-tights ensemble for those inevitable upcoming smart-casual Christmas events…
As you should probably know by now, I’m a sucker for a good scarf, and this pretty oyster pink one from Next has got just enough sparkle to make you feel like you’re in a winter wonderland. It might not be the warmest scarf around, but it doesn’t half look pretty!
One of my favourite perfumes is Nina by Nina Ricci, but it’s very much a summer scent. That’s where Nina L’Elixir perfume comes in: it warms up the sugary-sweet original Nina scent with red berries and amber, and makes it that bit more wintry and magical.
These gorgeous baroque earrings from New Look are actually a bit of cheat, since I already own them, but I think that they’d add the perfect bit of understated glamour to this dress, with the baroque detailing around the neckline.
What’s on your Christmas list?

My Perfume Collection

I love my new room. I love having an en suite, and I love that in that en suite, there is a fireplace with a mantelpiece.

Said mantelpiece has become the new home for my perfume collection, and it makes me smile to see them all laid out every time I go into the bathroom!

Outfit of the Night: 30th September

Sorry I’ve been MIA for a few days! I’ve been really busy working on the Oxford Fashion Week Dress Up Live Friday event, so in addition to staying up til 1 all week writing and managing their blog, Friday itself was pretty manic, and since then I’ve been sorting and uploading photos of the event, and doing some post-event coverage. I’ll be posting here about the evening tomorrow.

Anyway, I’m back now, and finally have the energy to post for myself rather than for OFW, so lets start with what I wore on the night…

Specifications were all-black, with a small flash of colour, and fashionable. Now, since I’m currently staying at Boyfriend’s, I only had a small selection of my clothes with me, and nothing that suited those specs, so that meant new clothes! I love what I ended up with, but together it’s a rather interesting look…P1010894

Girly Lust List

Feeling Girly

I’m feeling very summery and girly today, and although I don’t wear a lot of pink, I’ve utterly fallen in love with this ombre dress from Oasis (£55).

I’ve also lost my big floppy sunhat, and think this hot pink one is fun! I’d accessorise the dress further with jewellery like this – although not these two items, if I wanted to have any money left! I’m very into rose gold jewellery at the moment, and really like the elaborate twists of this ring.

I’m so so excited for the new Burne-Jones Dream collection from A England – pink and red holo polish! All with a beautiful Pre-Raphaelite Sleeping Beauty theme… I can’t wait to try them!

I’d finish my outfit with a spritz of L’Eau de Nina by Nina Ricci, the lighter, summerier version of one of my favourite fragrances, Nina, and flop down in a rose garden with a copy of Wildwood, a beautiful book by the lead singer of the Decemberists – I’m looking forward to this!

For the time being, though, I’ll just stay here and daydream through my essay while everyone else frolicks in the sun…
