Humorous Gold

Magazine pages are now adorned with numerous Christmas guides, Secret Santa presents, Christmas party dresses and accessories, hell we can even rent generous celeb clothes from those clever minds at Topshop. Being bombarded with purchases I should be making, one is undoubtedly going to lose enthusiasm for it all. So when i came across this Kate Spade gift bow necklace, I remembered all that is festive, the joys of presents and the happiness I should actually be feeling when spending all my money this month.

Pen Pals

Ever thought the outline of our monarchy's head has become a tad monotonous? We see them on coins, notes, stamps making the top right corner of my envelope lacking any kind of exciement that I should be feeling when I recieve a birthday/Christmas card or invitation. Alber Elbaz has sorted the French out with Lanvin's limited edition stamps. Elbaz has created two colourful and animated designs to celebrate the brand's 120 year anniversary making French mail that bit more interesting. Perhaps I should befriend a Parisian...

Pop Ya Collar

Once in a while, well more like a couple of days, a new obsession kicks in where I must find a long tee, heart pattern tights, leather bracelet etc. My craving for this week is for a fur collar. Last month saw me tuck into the back of my closet to find that old fur jacket that had been gathering dust due to my lack of fur adoration and uncover my staple item right now. It seems only natural that this new found love will spread beyond a jacket. And so for my next purchase: the fur collar

Horses and Swings

Always aiming for the "different factor", Sonia Rykiel's underwear for H&M animated its Parisian runway by models riding giant horses, swinging luxury swings and climbing spot-lit mountains all on their way to the setting of all settings that personifies luxury, lingerie and romance: the Eifel Tower
