Fluffy gilet – All Saints (on sale!). (DIY Slashed) jeans – Supertrash. Bootes – Kurt Geiger. Bag – Couronne. Silk & mohair sweater – Hoss Intropia. Watch – Lasson & Jennings. Rings – Monica Vinader. Silk bracelet – Hermes Petit h. Gold bracelet – Kenzo. Thank you Kit for helping with the outfit pics!

So… I may have skipped out on the annual rumble with desperate last-minute shoppers by finding gifts earlier in the month, but turns out none of that mattered because I was that person with the bulging Santa sack at the post office on the very last working day before Christmas begging for stamps. I don’t even get points for joining a 50-strong queue that snaked around the building because none of the gifts will arrive on time anyway. I was also the person fighting a lady with three kids over the last orange in Tesco’s thinking if I don’t buy this now we will get starve and DIE over Christmas, or get scurvy, then die. Oh, and the girl that got carried away buying winter essentials as if preparing for a snow disaster, and by essentials I mean fluffy gilets from All Saints (on sale, no less) that probably aren’t very practical for any disaster, really, unless I’m doing a style-off with the snow. In any case, I do hope for a bit of weather drama over the next few days, just so I can blame it for the gifts not arriving on time and hope no one will check the date on the stamp, or this blogpost. Oh I’ve screwed up this year, haven’t I.

Since I’m probably getting whips/handcuffs again for being naughty this year, let me know if you’re as bad as me with Christmas and maybe we can start a business together by selling them all. What do you think?

  7. Just hope no one receiving a gift reads this, but then I remembered you saying a while back that most of your friends/family don’t even know blogging takes up most of your life.

  17. I’m probably worse than you – I’ll be that girl running around the shops on Xmas Eve looking like a contestant on the zombie apocalypse special of Supermarket Sweep, buying up every last Boots gift set I can get my hands on only to get home and realise I’ve forgotten someone. Happens every year. I’ll never learn, it seems …

  18. No worries! Late Christmas presents are the best- when you think it’s all over the goodies arrive…

  19. You have so much style, I know I keep telling you, but reading your post is like opening a gift, a sweet or a box of chocolate, a real delight!

    How did you start?
    Do you have people that work for you?
    the whole nine!
