All I want for Christmas...

Sorry to all those Christmas haters out there looking at this with actual real live tears in their eyes...I know that Christmas is a bit of a hot topic at the moment but if you don't like it there isn't much you can do but emmigrate or join in with the festive fun :) Do you ever play ' If I had a million euro/dollars/pounds/yen'? Let's play that now. I'll go first!

If I had million euro I would immediately buy the following outfit to wear Christmas shopping:

Snappy 80's coat, £50 Miss Selfridge

Ostrich feather skirt (!!), £85 Topshop

Lace tee, £25 Topshop

Two-tone tights (like the girl in the new 'Fame' film wore when she was dancing and I was proper confused because I couldn't figure out why she was wearing tights for some shots and none for others...then I discovered that she was wearing these two tone beauties), £8 Miss Selfridge

Too-cute-for-words heels, £70 Topshop

Cameo brooch, Miss Selfridge £10

Studded purse, £18

It's kind of ironic that I have to go shopping for my Christmas shopping outfit (or is it coincidental? I can never tell the difference). So THATS what I'd do with a million euro straight off and I'd still have lots of change leftover...I'd love to know what you'd so don't hesitate to tell me!

...You make my heart sing...

I'm extremely embarrassed because this will be my first post in a week and a bit...heres my LAME excuse; I was very very busy. Yeah that sucked. Though I would love to thank all you lovely pretty people who commented and followed lately...hi5s all round! So I was looking around at other blogs and the fabulous Beth of NiftyThrifty (methinks you can find her in my followers list?) said something along the lines of the American Urban Outfitters being better than the European. So I put on my detective costume and went to investigate ... Beth is so right! I much much prefer the stuff on the North American website and they have plentiful pieces in VELVET and GOLD. How did they know my weaknesses?!

The best bit is they have lots of clothing inspired by 'Where the Wild Things Are' which is a movie that I am extra phsyched to see because the boy Max in it has a monster suit (*jealous*) and the hairy guys look like the Gruffalo. These are the nicest:

< Well its pretty basic but it gets my message across. My message being THIS MOVIE LOOKS EPIC. $28

< This one might require a little "No it's not just a triangular pattern it's supposed to be FUR". Max eat your heart out. Also $28 but you could probably achieve the same effect with a big white cotton tee and a magic marker.

< Woot woot it's the gruffalo guy! And if you look at it from a distance with squinty eyes it looks like theyre having a big hairy rave! I love at $14.99

They also have extended awesomeness with 'Where the wild things are' figurines (ahem), soundtrack, story books, slippers, cushions and um shadow puppets. Wahey! Thank you Beth!

I'll be in touch :)

That's not my name

Look what I just found in Topshop! New in! Tehe I feel like I've just eaten a couple of Wham bars and a two litre bottle of Spar brand cola ... this is what happiness feels like!

It's a NAME jumper! Phwoargh! Designed by Emma Cook - £50 (pullover) and £70 (cardigan). Now if you're the forgetful sort *cough me cough* this kind of thing will be extremely handy for remembering names of people you were introduced to but didn't really pay attention to the important stuff they were saying like um their name. I think I prefer the red one because I'm more of a cardigan person and red is christmassy :)

I'm going on a shopping BONANZA (isn't that a fabulous word I should use it more often) next weekend cause lately I have been saving and saving which means I have been going around giving everyone on Grafton street with fresh Awear bags the evil eye because I think I have shopping withdrawals and I am at that stage where I growl at everything in my wardrobe because I have worn it a million and one-more-for-good-luck times. I can't wait!

My precious...

I ADORE GOLD. It is my favourite colour. Yeah it's out there, yeah it's occasionally tacky, but I love it. The only problem with it is that it is so easy to wander off from your cosy spot in the 'lovely tasteful and exquisite gold shizzle' into the well-disguised 'tasteless gold tat' spot. I guess some of my gold ensembles are hit and miss, but because I'm only fifteen, I can blame it on my youthful ignorance or whatever. Though I would never, ever wear a full gold suit.

Man, Elvis looks so cool. Okay, maybe I would wear that...

So if you detest gold with every fibre of your very being LOOK AWAY NOW because I have gathered all my favourite gold stuff on this very post;

< Ahem some people may say that this Monsoon dress is borderline tacky but those people are krr-azy 'cause I love the statementy qualities of it. It is guaranteed to do two things - to turn heads at parties and to blind motorists. If you can pull off this dress (that means no streaky fake tan and dodgy hair extensions) I salute you. Can't you totally imagine a sunkissed goddess sitting on a cloud with a big stick ordering this online for £225?

< This is much more my kind of dress - I can imagine strolling into all the 2009 Christmas parties in it. The only flaw is that while I wear it, it will be the only thing I will be able to talk about..."The weather? That reminds me of the dress I am know it was €45 in Awear. Oh, I already told you that? Twice?"

< Warehouse. Ninety seven Euro. So cute! However it is rather short so I'd have to do some leg-toning exercises for my thighs to be in peak condition before zipping it up...

< Oooh I want this skirt so bad. Maybe it's just the model wearing it, but it looks so flattering. When one day I work in an office, this will totally be my 'casual friday' outfit. £36 in American Apparel.

< It's decided - tomorrow afternoon I am getting on the bus to town and begging the salewoman in American Apparel for a job. They stock so much of my favourite colour! Isn't this top so freaking awesome?! £44...I MUST HAVE IT.

So that concludes my (little) gold online search...if you hate 'em or if you think there's something even more fabulous out there let me know...if not I'll presume you love each and every piece as much as I do :)

Sleigh bells ring...

I absolutely 100% ADORE Christmas. I am most definitely one of those annoying people who get all hyperactive when Argos plays their Christmas ad in September and I totally get a tingly feeling in my tummy when I see men with beards that look like Santa (don't worry at fifteen I have figured out that he is fictional). So this year I have an aim. Not my usual aims like the one I made last year to learn the entire thriller dance routine, no an extra special aim. To get a Christmas jumper! Here's an example of the kind I would like:

I AM INSANELY JEALOUS OF COLIN FIRTH RIGHT NOW. Thing is, it’s really really difficult to find the perfect Christmas jumper complete with bobbly reindeer and snow flakes. Either I take up knitting or I burgle Colin Firth's place I suppose.

Merry November to all!
