This week we have a bit of Christmas mixed with a touch of Spring Summer 2014. Such is the way with fashion. You're always looking a season ahead. Trust me when I say it's tough looking at sheer florals while you are wearing four layers of clothing. First, we'll touch on the fact that there's a Christmas window at Selfridges that features snowmen hijacking a Louis Vuitton bag. Awesome.
While we're talking about awesome Christmas displays, of course we have to mention that while Selfridges may be "destination Christmas," Liberty are stepping it up with a pretty awesome display in store. Have you seen the exploding Cambridge Satchel? It's large and in charge.
And of course Christmas isn't complete without the Claridge's Christmas Tree. Dolce & Gabbana are the designers this year and the party was out of this world. The tree is up through Christmas so do stop in and take a look. It's surreal.
The FFG Christmas tree is mini this year. Fabulous things come in small packages, right? It was all I could carry on the way home from Thanksgiving lunch with Tiffany's.
The highlight of my week was taking my nieces and nephew to the new Disney Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Harrods.
Now for the pinch of Spring Summer 2014. River Island had their press day this week and they cake pops beach was memorable. That's right. You can eat everything on the beach. And the clever PRs also brought in one of my favourite illustrators to sketch us all in our favourite pieces!
The fire scene you see above is an actual office meeting space in East London. Can you imagine being able to meet everyday in such a cozy setting? They practically had to shove me out the door. I would've stayed forever.
While east, I explored floral opportunities and home decor...
Then I headed west again to Knightsbridge where I had a meeting at Laduree in Harrods. Posh, eh? And delicious...
Oh and I'll just casually mention the invitation of the year has arrived... Christian Louboutin sample sale!
A big thank you to Rosie Fortescue for sending over your beautiful new collaboration. I am in love with this pink calf hair iPad case. Sweet treats from the sweetest girl!
And finally, my week ended with a spectacular afternoon at the Lanesborough (more to come on this later) and trying to recover from cold and dry weather with Emily Evans lotion (how fabulous is the packaging?).
