Faux Pas Christmas Wishlist

The festive season is well and truly here and it's time to write those letters to Santa!

Although I'm not overly excited when it comes to writing about reams of products I want for Christmas, there are a few pieces I'm coveting this season.


Pilgrim tee, Teds Draws// Milkshake clutch, New Look//Pom pom earrings, Vida Kush // Kick Push platforms, La Moda // Mint to be lipstick, Limecrime// Slip dress, Motel 



Ted's Draws is a small online boutique that I fell in love with a little while ago, with illustrated caricature tees seen on the likes of model Jourdan Dunn and singer Jessie Ware. I'm a massive fan of his Wednesday Addams top, £25 online. 

No girl can ever have too many clutches and New Look's recent batch of culinary inspired bags caught my eye, my favourite being this milkshake themed one. With a zip to the top of the piece and a metallic finish, it's hard to resist. Timberland's and their counterparts have been trickling onto the high street and my favourite boutique La Moda has these swaggerific platform boots. The thick sole and honey-toned hue make them the perfect shoe for a shortie like me.

As accessories go, I'm always slightly disappointed by how similar high street pieces look, however Vida Kush always gets me excited. These pom pom earrings in baby blue are a vintage-inspired nod to '90s chic. Perfect.

Green is my favourite colour, and there is nothing like a silky dress to accentuate the emerald shade. Motel Rocks has this vibrant, iridescent dress for just £40 in a silky, slip style, perfect when accessorising with chunky chains and cleated heels. For the ultimate in quirky make-up, Limecrime answers my prayers with their shade 'mint to be', loaded with pigment and long lasting, it really is my favourite beauty brand.
