12 Days of Christmas: The 5 Things On Every Fashion Girl's Christmas List

                                                                           VIA @AMINAMUADDI

Christmas is honestly the best time of year. Not just because I love it or because it's a time for family & love, or even because the world is just that little bit more magical. No, it's also the extra time (apart from our birthdays) when we get to write lists of potential gifts to ourselves. Remember when we were little and would write our never-ending lists to Santa? What a time. As we get older, we kind of hint everything we want to the people we love. 

And to be honest, I think the fashion girls are the ones with the craziest lists because every five minutes we see something new we want. Whether it's the most sought after piece or something a little less known, we'll find something extra to add to our wishlist. However, it seems that every year there's a small collection of items that everyone is after. 

Here are the 5 things on every fashion girl's Christmas list for 2019:

Gucci Tights

These are 100% on my list, after a great deal of thinking about whether they are worth it. Conclusion: worth it. We all love a good pair of tights, especially in the winter because they are both chic and warm for our legs. Whilst we can all go about wearing our normal M&S tights, but we could also be boujee as hell and go for Gucci instead.

The Pouch by Bottega Veneta

Okay, some people may be sick of it, some not and some desperately waiting to see if it'll appear under the Christmas tree. I don't think this bag is going anywhere anytime soon and if a girl's not got it yet, she's bound to want it. This year it became *the* iconic bag, so of course it had to be included. With all the new colours, new textures and sizes, you've got a bunch of options too. So now I probably want multiple, like the rest of the fashion girls.

Chunky Chain Jewellery

I'm seeing this trend everywhere and I think girls really love it. We've all had our moments with dainty jewellery, now it's time for the chunky pieces to shine. They seem to be working their way into everyday stacking - whether it be on the neck or arm, it's a style that everyone from high street to designer is releasing. These pieces pictured above are created by influencer, @josefinehj, and are perfect for Christmas gifting!

Amina Muaddi Shoes

The shoe brand of the year, hands down. And if there's a shoe that a girl wants right now, it's probably from Amina Muaddi. That sculptured heel, the touch of bling, where can you go wrong? They are just perfectly bold and can be worn time and time again. They are the shoes of the moment.

ByFar Mini Bag

Single handle bags are all the rage right now. From Jacquemus to ByFar, they are taking the world by storm. And I have to say, the ByFar ones are truly making their mark. Tiny bags are super cute, sometimes impractical, yet we all want one! ByFar have the best range of colours, textures and designs so why look anywhere else?!


Which of these 5 are on your list? Or are they all up there? For me, if I could have anything it would probably be the Gucci tights & a pair of Amina Muaddi shoes. I mean, of course I would want shoes. I never not want shoes. What other pieces do you think are going to be staples on a fashion girl's Christmas list? Am I missing anything big? Let me know in the comments below.

12 Days of Christmas: All The Nail Inspo You Need For This Season

Nails done by moi!

I would say a lot of us definitely feel that Christmas is not right if our nails are not reflective of how festive we are. I love getting my nails done (or doing them myself), it's such a simple luxury that can instantly lighten your mood and make you super sassy whilst trying to show of your nails as much as possible. 

As much as I love nail art, I don't like to go too crazy with it anymore - I'm a lady now (at least in my head haha). So when it comes to this time and you want to reflect the holly jolly spirit whilst having classy, subtle nails, here's some inspo for you. 

                                                                                                                                       VIA @FONGMINLIAO

VIA @PATABLOGUJE                                                                           VIA @LYDIAEMILLEN

 VIA @NAILSBYLINDSEYW                                                                                               VIA @BXDDIENAILS

VIA PINTEREST                                                                                                             VIA: @OKSANA.OBLAP

So what nail type are you? Would you go for a solid colour with a little design or more of the subtle frosting or nail tips? Right now, as you can see above, I've tried out the red tip nails (not as amazing as @fongminliao's) and I quite love them! But I do also love the frosted french tips like Lydia Millen-Gordon's because they are perfect to run you through in the new year! Ugh, I'll probably change my nails again won't I? 

Lots of Love & Christmas Cheer,

With All The (*Feather) Trimmings: The Fancy Feather Pieces For The Holiday Season

                                                                         IMAGE CREDIT: @ANNACARLAESIMONA

It's official - I've fallen in love with a trend that I didn't think I would even like. The feather trim trend. I love it. It gives a truly nostalgic vibe, very 60's that I think is so playful and sassy, it cannot be missed. Adding a little oomph to your favourite pieces, the feather trend is taking the fashion world by storm and a big handful of designers are dipping their toes into it. 

Another reason to love this trend? It's perfect for the holiday season that is about to be upon us! Wouldn't you want to show up to your Christmas or New Year parties with fun feathers? I really would. I think it's totally perfect for NYE this year - Heading into the new decade with something sassy is a big yes for me. 

Right now the brand that is totally owning the trend is 16Arlington, a UK based brand that I've seen pop up now on a few Instagram accounts, which is where I found them. I mean, just go onto their designer page on Net-A-Porter and you'll see. They have party pieces to suit everyone!

But they aren't the only ones. With the likes of Prada, Saint Laurent, Miu Miu, Dolce & Gabbana and Attico too, you're bound to find a brand who does the best piece for you. 


Just looking at these makes me want to rock the feather trim this festive season! Don't you?

Lots of Love & Christmas Cheer, 

Emily xx
