CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE: THE FASHIONISTA

How on earth is is the second week of December already?! If you’re anything like me and haven’t made a start on your Christmas shopping yet (eek!), let alone written your own list for Santa then I think you’ll rather love today’s installment of our Christmas Gift Guide for the Fashionista! Whether the fashion-lover in your life is your sister, best friend or mum we’ve got you covered with everything from beauty products to shoes and bags – plus I’m sure you’ll find a few items that you’ll totally be coveting yourself. Oh, and Santa, I need everything!!

THE PRINT

Not on the High Street £10

I’m a huge fan of Coulsen Macloed prints, and this one is perfect for the most stylish lady in your life.  It would look totally fab above my dressing table. BUY HERE

THE PARTY KIT

BLOW Ltd £30

The Blow Bar in Covent Garden is my favourite stop-off before a big night out, their pre-party blow outs and makeup have you dance-floor ready in under an hour.  But for days when time is of the essence, their #10minuteblow Party Kits are perfect for getting you out of the door and looking totally in a jiffy,  BUY HERE

THE LIPPY

Chanel £26

Classic red lippy. Chanel. What’s not to love?! BUY HERE

THE CHOOS

Jimmy Choo £425

I’ve yet to meet a lady who would say no to a pair of Choos in her closet! Based on cost-per-wear I’m convinced the Anouk is your best buy – subtle enough for a day in the office but glam enough for a night of city cocktails or paired with a sparkly number for a New Year’s party perhaps? BUY HERE

THE WATCH

Michael Kors £230

I’m still totally crushing on Rose Gold, and I adore my Kate Spade rose gold watch which was a pressie from Santa last year.  If I had to chose again I’d totally pick this Michael Kors beauty though.  BUY HERE

THE BLING

Monica Vinader £225

Monica Vinader is one of my favourite jewellers right now, her style is classic, minimal and modern making it wearable for pretty much any occasion.  This unusual oval-shaped rose gold ring with diamonds and rock crystal would make a pretty addition under any tree this year. BUY HERE

THE INSPIRATION

Vogue Magazine Subscription £19.99

To stay up to date with the latest fashions and designer news every fashionista needs a style bible, and Vogue is the ultimate! BUY HERE

THE WEEKEND WEAR

Whistles £75

Every fashionista needs a day off, but that doesn’t mean sacrificing style! This cosy sweat from Whistles is perfect weekend wear paired with your favourite skinnies and a pair of Chucks. BUY HERE

THE BAG

Kate Spade £178

A new handbag fatures on my Christmas list pretty much every year. This time I’m hoping for this sassy little cross-body number from Kate Spade, stylish for work and weekends – plus I love the splash of pink which will take it though Spring & Summer too! BUY HERE

Louise

After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

You’ll also find me working as an Editorial Stylist, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as contributing as a founding member of bridal inspiration hub Aisle Society, and running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive from our super pretty base in London. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
