It happened so fast: the clocks went back, Halloween fast forwarded onto November and suddenly the party season arrived. For many of us December is a festive blur of work parties, dinners and Christmas shopping; I can't really help with the latter but I can come up with some sleek styling ideas so you look and feel fantastic, even after that sixth Prosecco...
Treasuring our clothes doesn't have to mean an end to shopping. Far from it! But what it does mean is not settling for second best. So next time you find yourself heading for a fast fashion fix, why not take a step back from the rail and simply ask yourself, is this item truly worthy of my wardrobe?
Seems there's a gold rush going on at the moment everywhere (even the Team GB trophy cabinet) with glistening, golden shades shining from shop rails, beauty displays and shoe stores. When it comes to metallics I'm usually a silver or bronze girl although I do love a rose gold, especially for eyeshadows and jewellery.
So, my decision is this: an investment piece needs, well, an investment. I need a satchel that can give me everything I want in a bag. I want something beautiful yet practical. Something I can carry around my Macbook, notebooks, makeup and all the other essentials I take with me on a daily basis and not fall apart on me while I'm on the tube, leaving me scrambling around desperately trying to not lose anything amongst the commuters.
