December is my favourite time of year. Whether spent soaking up the sun in Australia or rugged up against the fresh winter chill in London or the States; the magical alluring enchantment of Christmas quite simply sets my head spinning. On my Christmas wishlist this year – irrevocable style; many undeniably chic fashion moments & something perfectly fabulous – maybe just maybe a Mulberry Alexa! Simply divine…
I hope you all have a whimsically, romantic December!

I Want Candy
Indulge your senses with sweet confectionary inspired delights.
At Stella McCartney’s resort launch, models played croquet alongside lollipop wagons. While at Isaac Mizrahi’s Autumn / Winter collection waiters carried brightly decorated cakes inspired by the delectable gowns on the runway.
From cream puff skirts and candy stripe cocktail dresses, this trend evokes an airy Marie-Antoinette-like indulgence. For a lighter take on this sugary palette, take arm candy to new heights. Kate Spade’s deliciously playful ‘Cha Cha Chocolate’ clutches = chocolat perfection (pictured right)!
Opulent, whimsical and delectably lovely, what better way to indulge in a concoction of lavish desserts?
Will you indulge in this sweeter way of dressing?

To the occasion Bowles wore a Thierry Mugler suit, a Philip Treacy top hat and Christian Louboutin gold crystal shoes. Under the guidance of Liza Minnelli he picked the song, “Oops! … I Did It Again” by Britney Spears.
Of receiving Wintour’s assignment, Bowles has said: “I had to read the e-mail from the editor in chief several times to be quite sure. There, buried like a time bomb in a bouquet, was this chilling sentence: ‘I have signed you up to compete in The X Factor.'”
