12 Days of Christmas

So I don’t know about you but we absolutely LOVE Christmas! In light of the season quickly approaching, we thought we would run a series of fun blogs to get us all in the festive spirit. For the next 6 weeks we will be featuring everything and anything to do with our favourite holiday… favourite recipes, décor tips, gift ideas and more. We may even throw in a few fun give-a-ways so stay tuned and keep reading!

We thought we would get things started with our must have fashion items for this holiday season.  Whether you are a party goer, a hostess, or just want to look good this winter, these items will have you in the holiday spirit, from head to toe.

1. The Fur Vest

If you have been shopping lately, you will notice that almost every store has their version of the fur vest.  Whether faux or real, it is definitely a must have.  This one is from BCBG and is the Adler Rabbit Faux-Fur Vest http://www.bcbg.com/store/jackets/adler-rabbit-faux-fur-vest-40433.html.  Vests are a great article of clothing to jazz up your wardrobe this winter, not to mention they will keep you warm and fuzzy!

2. Sephora by OPI Holiday Gem Collection

Want to add some sparkle?  This OPI collection will have your fingers and toes twinkling. There are a variety of colours available with adorable festive names like “Looks Like Rain Dear” and “Flurry Up” http://www.sephora.com/browse/section.jhtml?categoryId=C23644.

3. Every girl needs a pair of blinged-out shoes, especially for the holidays.  These are a steal for $150 a piece from Town Shoes.  Stand out with Enzo Angiolini’s crystal pumps or Steve Madden’s blue pump with a  rhinestone heel http://www.townshoes.com/womens-shoes/evening-wear/.


4. The Party Dress

The party dress is a staple this time of year, with so many events and holiday gatherings.  Check out this little black number from H&M’s Party Collection for only $19.95 http://www.hm.com/ca/party#lookbook/l3.   You will also find an abundance of sequence this season, like this gold sequin prom dress from Top Shop, available at The Bay in Canada.  Colour is also a must this winter, so if you want to go the vibrant route, add a punch of colour with this purple pencil skirt from J.Crew http://www.jcrew.com/womens_category/skirts/pencil/PRDOVR~58261/58261.jsp.


5. Speaking of colour, this double-bow clutch in dark peony is one of my faves and only $108 at J.Crew http://www.jcrew.com/AST/Navigation/Women/PRD~61963/61963.jsp.

Happy Shopping!

    Appreciate for the interesting blog update. I was trying to subscribe to your RSS feed, but I wasn’t able to get it working with my RSS reader. Is there a problem, or is it my fault (I’m a bit of a technophobe!)?
