Well, the Christmas parties are in full swing, the sun is shining – intermittently of course – and anticipation is building.
Of course, the joy is in the giving at this time of year, but sometimes while looking tirelessly for others it might happen that a few bits come on to your own mental wish list…perhaps a boutique dress or a stunning designer jacket. So, why not have an answer ready for the inevitable question of whether there’s anything you would like for Christmas? Yes, yes there is!!
Hot in store are a range of fabulous printed Limited Edition Tees by Wendys. The ideal weight for summer, the combination of cotton with a smidge of spandex means they will hold their shape beautifully. With a range of cap sleeve, ¾ sleeve and everything from stripe to floral, these Tees are perfect to pop in your suggestion box.
Having spent years buying cheap sunnies – mainly due to the fact that mine have a habit of spending quite a lot of time at the bottom of my handbag – I’ve finally embraced the joy of quality eyewear. Having invested in a good pair, I can’t actually believe the difference they make – and I’m not just talking style. Both the Elk and Trelise Cooper sunnies have that all-important high quality sun protection, are sturdy and will take your summer look up quite a few notches.

If you haven’t already grabbed yourself a woven rattan bag, then now’s the time. They are absolutely the bag of the season – and the latest drop of Side Satch Bags from Wendys will make the perfect accessory. Large enough to fit all of the essentials, they transition from day to night perfectly. If you prefer a sleeker look then the Lilly Leather Clutch comes in a fabulous range of colors, allowing you to match to any outfit.
Oh, if there’s one time for a bit of spoiling, this is it. Whatever your idea of the ultimate treat, you can guarantee it’s here. The new arrivals in store from Ten include the softest Peaches floral maxi, and a sultry Ruffle Dress – if you’re looking for a summer staple with style then look no further. Conversely check out the latest in cool linens; Naudic have a totally on trend shirtdress that can be thrown on anytime, anywhere. If you’re feeling a wee bit indulgent nothing brings Hollywood into the home more than a silk chemise from Trelise Cooper.

You’re The One
If you’re really taking things to the next level, and want to suggest or gift yourself the ultimate treasure, then cast your eyes over these once-in-a-lifetime pieces. With only one of each available, choosing one is a little like discovering your soul mate. The Trelise Cooper Draped In Jewels Jacket is exquisite. Hand-embellished, the colours and detail are phenomenal. This, to me, is the Faberge egg of fashion – and the lucky wearer will quite literally stop traffic. The Moss & Soy Danube Gown has been cut from the finest midnight silk. It is beyond flattering, as the long bejewelled bodice skims the torso, allowing the silk to fall in sleek lines along the length of the legs. The Trelise Cooper Dagger To The Heart Jacket manages to team the timelessness of a leather bomber with a frision of edginess. This is the ultimate moment for a high-end piece that you could wear with absolutely anything - and guarantee you’ll look a million dollars.
