The Net-A-Porter sale has just gone live. It’s an amazing sale up to 50% off including a lot of designer pieces I’ve shared before or posted in my Net A Porter Collaboration. Most of these are things you’ll find in my closet or will have seen me post. My Top picks: My Joseph Leggings that I wear all the time, This Ulla Johnson Dress that is so comfortable and beautiful on, my Jimmy Choo glittered suede pumps, one of my favourite pairs of Agolde jeans, and I absolutely love this beautiful blue Rotate Birger Christensen dress. I never posted it as it wasn’t included in the Net-A-Porter pre sale, but it’s gorgeous and under£150.

I  absolutely love Christmas and I LOVE giving gifts, I spend a lot of time trying to find the perfect gift for my friends and family, and I know it sounds corny but I really do like giving gifts more than receiving them!  NET-A-PORTER is always one of my favourite go to destinations to purchase not only fashion, but beauty and gifts, as they really have it all, the selection is incredible, they have brads that you often can’t find elsewhere, and I believe you can find an impeccable gift on NET-A-PORTER for every woman,  regardless of budget! I have complied a guide of things I love, own, are on my Wishlist or I will be buying for my loved ones. I don’t even need to mention that if you are in London there is same day delivery (if the rest of the UK its next day delivery), and as always the packaging is always amazing and so chic!

 

UNDER £25 

It is perfectly possible to get a gorgeous gift for under £25 and that is no exception , my personal favourites are the clear make up case, which is super stylish plus perfect for travelling and I always love to be able to see where everything is ! I also love this red lipstick by CODE8 – my favourite shade of orangey red. This Tulipe by Byredo hand sanitiser is the chicest hand sanitiser you will find, not to mention the best smelling (its in my handbag!)

 

 

 

 

 

 

UNDER £60

Another few of my favourites here, I sleep EVERY day with my Slip Silk sleep mask, and not a day goes by when I dont use my Charlotte Tillbury highlighter and bronzer. This years Diptyque Christmas candles are amazing and I love the artwork by Olaf Hajek, such a perfect gift.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

UNDER £100

I have these Johnstones of Elgin cashmere “gloves” I actually love that they are fingerless as I can get stuff done!! and they are super warm and cosy. This Sophie Billie Brahe jewellery box is so exquisite and on my wish list, I love the vintage feel and the velvet. Doson by Diptique is one of my favourite scent so this one definitely makes the list.

 

 

 

 

 

 

UNDER £250

Again so many things I love. This Prada headband is just amazing, I wear mine all the time and personally think it is well worth the extra splurge for the designer version. Am loving these initial mini earrings. This Cami NYC is a staple in my wardrobe and they are the perfect piece that will be loved and worn year after year. The Feu De Bois candle by Diptyique is my personal favourite, it can smell very smokey when you smell it in the box, but it burns beautifully and reminds me or warm winter evenings. Lastly as old fashioned as I am I LOVE a paper diary, I use it for my daily lists and this Smythson gold one is the one I have used this year – I love the gold.

 

 

 

 

 

 

UNDER £500

Silk Pjs are always the ultimate luxury gift, I love these Olivia Von Halle ones. The sleeper are more of an outfit but LOVE them, you saw me in the black earlier this year (I wear them for dinner). Tata Harper skincare is just so amazing, I love that all their products are natural and organic and they actually DO WORK! I am seriously considering one of the LED light masks, hailed as THE miracle products by skin experts this is definitely on my wish list this Christmas.

 

 

 

 

 

UNDER £1000

I have a silk kimono dressing gown that is 15 years old from when I lived in Japan, so this Olivia Von Halle dressing gown would be the perfect forever gift. All the shoes I have linked below are incredible, shoes are such a great gift (who doesn’t love shoes?) a great shoe to gift is one that will be worn and timeless – its hard  for me to pick a favourite but I love the Aquazurra and the Jimmy Choos. This Saint Laurent bag is the ultimate evening bag that will be used forever, another timeless classic piece. I just bought this Martin Martin blazer and even though it just creeps over the £1000 mark I included it as its such an amazing piec, each piece is made by hand in Paris – its also definitely a brand to watch.

 

 

 

 

 

 

£1000 plus – the forever pieces

The big gift, I always think jewellery is the perfect gift, you will own it forever and be able to pass it down to your children, and something you can wear all the time. I have linked a few pieces of jewellery that I love, I LOVE Fernando George and this pink ring is so pretty. I am obsessed with this Piaget sunlight necklace, rose gold, diamonds and Opal – whats not to love! Lastly my MaxMara teddy is one of my favourite things, super light and cosy I just love putting it on on these cold winter days and I think it is a total forever piece.

LASTLY  – the FANTASY gift! I know this is not realistic for 99.9999% of the population, and is definitely WAAAAY out of my league but this jewellery box from Jessica Mccormack is just insanely gorgeous. Inspired by the whimsical tales of Alice in Wonderland and The Secret Garden, this one-of-a-kind box features two velvet-lined trays sectioned into compartments and embroidered with flora and fauna – every bead, thread and metallic yarn has been hand-stitched by artisans at Hand & Lock. PLUS – it is full to the brim of jewellery, all her signature pieces.

It’s that time of year again where we get to dress up, feel festive, and wear all of our favourite party dresses and sparkly pieces. I do love this holiday season, everyone is so happy and jolly and its just the perfect get dressed up and be glam. I wanted to do an edit of lots of my favourites looks for the festive season with  MyTheresa. I often think it is great to invest in a black party dress, as its something you can wear year on year and can be almost more timeless, so I shot lots of my favourite back dresses but there is plenty of colour too. I have done a massive round up of lots of my favourites styles and divided itinto lots of price ranges and shoes and accessories. Hope you enjoy it 🙂

 

 

DRESSES

I absolutely love getting dressed up, putting on an amazing dress, and heading out to a Christmasy event/party. Below are lots of my favorites. I’m absolutely loving this Norma Kamali black polo neck sequin dress. I love the shape and I think it’s super super chic. Paco Robanne is having a major moment — totally loving this blush velvet dress with diamante detailing. Another favourite is this incredible one shoulder Alessandra Rich dress and this Magda Butrym dress that I shot earlier in the season. I’ve also included a few, slightly more affordable options, such as this black off the shoulder dress and this short sequined mini, both by Self Portrait.

ACCESSORIES (JEWELLERY, HANDBAGS, & BOWS)

A great accessory can amp up any outfit. Even a simple black trouser and cami can be dressed up with the perfect accessory. I love a statement earring. I just bought these Magda Butrym ones. I’m also obsessed with these sparkly Jennifer Behr ones. I also love pearls — these Dolce and Gabbana ones are on my wish list. I’m totally all about the bows at the moment, hair bows, bows on shoes, just love them all. This velvet Mui Mui bow, exclusive to MyTheresa is divine. I also love this pink bow by Jennifer Behr again which is on sale and the black version in a beautiful velvet. For evening I love a small bag. Love this timeless Roger Vivier one which you would pull out year after year. Also love this sequined one and this classic by The Row.

 

 

SHOES

Nothing’s better than the perfect party shoe. There are so many I love this season. My absolute must-haves are these lace Jimmy Choo shoes. I have last year’s version and adore them. I’m also in love with and just bought these red bow Christian Louboutins which are exclusive to MyTheresa so snap them up now. Love these Aquazzura diamente which come in lots of colourways. In case of terrible London weather My lace Gianvito Rossi boots would be perfect.

 

 

STATEMENT SEPARATES

 

A statement separate is always amazing to dress up a simple cashmere sweater or a jean/black trouser. This Khaite blouse is incredible. As is this beautiful off-the-shoulder top by Self Portrait. This sequined skirt by Veronica Beard is another winner. An amazing black velvet blazer always works and this one by Saint Laurent is forever timeless. I have a Saint Laurent blazer from 15 years ago that I still pull out.
