If you asked me which store I go into most, there is not even any competition, it’s Selfridges. It’s basically 10minutes away so I pop in at least 3 times a week, whether it be for my Gluten free bread, some make up or to shop their designer fashion. No surprise here but of course the fashion is my favourite. They have the most phenomenal selection and the “buy” is amazing – so no wonder it’s my number one spot for shopping.

WHAT ARE MY TOP PICKS

Selfridges really does have all the best designers in store, so it can be hard to know where to start. for me when I am shopping the Selfridges, or any sale for that matter sale, I generally have the rule that I only buy pieces that I love and would have paid full price for if money is no object. I tend to buy wardrobe staples, the ones you can’t necessarily afford day to day, but you know you will wear and wear again. Sale shopping is all about investing right?

 

First up I want to talk about Max Mara, which is a brand I always love to invest it;  their coats and knits are my favourites, not only are they timeless so they just last and last,  but they are so beautifully made, making the brand is the ultimate investment.

 

Here I am wearing the Max Mara camel Teddy, they launched the coat a few years ago, and I finally invested in it early this year after living in a dupe. I honestly haven’t taken it off since the weather got colder not only is it super luxurious and the cut is just phenomenal, but it is SUPER light, it is basically the most comfortable coat I have ever owned. I love it so much that I am seriously considering the pink teddy, I ordered it once and felt so guilty that I returned it, but I think with the 20% I will invest! the Leopard teddy is also DIVINE, and it comes in black too, which would be super.

 

 

 

But its not just the teddy I love –  I am a huge fan of the Manuela Coat, which is one from their archive that they do every year, it comes on Black, Navy, Camel and Tobacco and I am struggling to decide which is my favourite, I LOVE a camel coat, and camel is synonymous with the brand, but I also love the navy and black. My next favourite is the Guelfo alpaca blend coatI love the shape and the colour and shape – a triple winner! It is still expensive but for a MaxMara coat it is one of the cheaper ones at £1130 with 20% off this. Lastly I LOVE the Lilla Cashmere wrap coat and the Legume Shearling both a major investment but just DIVINE….and OHHH and how could I forget the iconic Madam double breasted wrap coat, again an archive piece that is SO French in style and SO chic that the re released last year.

Christmas is the season for party dressing, whether it be a work do, NYE or Christmas Day its such fun to dress up. If I am buying a festive dress, I make sure it is one that I can wear over, again one that won’t date really quickly. I think Self Portrait make the most wonderful dresses, again they are super stylish and they are very well made and fit really well so its one of my go to brands for a party dress.

Its no secret I love pink and I am obsessed with this pink ruffle shouldered midi dress, its SO SO pretty, will totally stand out and will be the perfect holiday / summer dress too. The other pink one I LOVE is the frilled sleeve crepe maxi dress, its in one of my favourite colour combinations of pink and navy and again will work throughout the year. The navy star print midi dress is super chic, and such a fabulous dress, as is the sequin Azalea and there red and white maxi.

Shoes are another item that I tend to pick up in the sale, my Balenciaga pink knife mules are included in the 20%…which is pretty amazing as they never go on sale, also amazingly my velvet knife boots are included and the velvet BB pump. Also included are the Alaia bombe shoes, the ones you see me wear and wear on holiday, in fact I am very tempted to go for the Burgundy velvet pair. My Alberta Feretti  Mia velvet mules in the exact same colour way are included, which are a fabulous wardrobe staple and dress up any outfit when you don’t want to wear heels – also I think a little more wearable that the embellished ones ( I always knock pearls off shoes!). But number 1 on my list are the  Givenchy biker boot, and if you don’t have them the Stuart Weitzman Highland over the knee boots are an amazing staple.

I have to be honest, I know this isn’t the a popular admission but I am normally not the biggest fan of sequins…. I know shock horror right? I have always been more of a lace, velvet or luxe fabric type of girl…..sparkles YES, but sequins not so much. YET I have to say since I have been seeing so many sequins on the runways of late with designers like Halpern and Templerley leading the way, the trend has been growing on me, and the best thing about this trend is I REALLY REALLY don’t think you need to spend a fortune on your sequin party dress, I have tried high end and high street and I have to say if you find the “right” high street pieces, there really isn’t any difference, so it really is a great way to save your pennies, especially coming up to the Christmas season.

 

The dress I really fell in love with, so much so that I am wearing on on a date night tonight is this Debut by Debenhams dress. I really think this dress is totally stunning, I love the tiered shape, I just love the swish the tiers makes as you walk, it just moves so well. Black always looks very chic and timeless, plus the style is flattering for all sizes, I love that the top of my arms are covered (not a huge fan of my upper arms in recent months) and the sequin details that give the effect of polka dots effect are just perfection. I have also shot the back of this dress, because it is so so pretty showing just the right amount of skin to be flattering for all. Best of all, for me I think that not only does the dress look designer the quality is also superb…and actually best best of all is that it is currently on sale for £104 instead of £130. click here to buy

The shoes I am wearing are also from Debenhams they are the Faith Chloe shoes which are such a great classic shape, mine are the “mermaid” colour, which is a gold, pinky red depending on how the light hits them, and they would go with so much. They also come in so many other colours, I personally LOVE the black too and I think for £39 are such a good buy (see shop my favourites below)

The clutch I am using is also from Debenhmans  – it is the multicoloured ombre Petra clutch which I think is a really great buy for £35. But if you want to spend a little more, I am also obsessed with the Jenny Packham box clutch for £50, it looks so expensive and designer, and I also love the pink flower cluster clutch which has a vintage feel (see shop my favourites below)

Lastly I also had to shoot this jumpsuit as I love it so much, it is the  Red Herring jumpsuit, I absolutely LOVE and the best thing of all is that it is £39! –  I have to say I do LOVE a jumpsuit though,  I think they can look so chic and this one really is an amazing buy – it fits so well. What do I love? Well I love the belt, the shape and it has a smattering of rainbow sparkles, giving it a fabulous 70s vibe, I just think it is a really great way of being dressed up without looking like you have tried too hard. click here to buy
