Stocking Filler Ideas


Ok I will admit it I am in my, mid, 20’s and I still LOVE getting a stocking at Christmas. The only difference now is that its already on my bed after I get in with my traditional night out in the local pub at home. I don’t touch it to the morning though.
 
Stockings can be tricky though, as the cost can soon add up. So here are my top stocking fillers.
 
1. Socks. Who doesn’t love getting a pair of cool socks!? I love it and I have quite the collection now don’t you know.

I love these stripy socks from Happy Feet, Box Clothing have a great selection to choose from.

2. Leather gloves, stylish and practical, what more could you want from a gift. Pst they are also half price in the sale!

For my final suggestion this hairy snood from French Connection. I love “hairy” material at the moment and this caught my eye straight away!

Duck & Cover

 
Duck & Cover 1950’s American Film
 
With all the wet weather we have had over the past few days I wanted to introduce you to a newish brand Duck and Cover. They were founded in 1996, and took inspiration for their name from a 1950’s American film about surviving a nuclear attack.

They started out as a sports brand and soon found a distinctive style that set them apart, becoming a design focused clothing company providing an alternative to the urban “uniform” or so to speak.

Rain Rain Go Away….

  
One word to describe the last two days, weather wise, YUK. Wind, Rain & more Rain. I am going to show you the best way to stay dry. First from one of my all time favourite designer Dame Vivienne Westwood, this Tweed wonder, I love the wrap over design & the Tweed material, perfect for adding a touch of the Heritage Trend to any Winter wardrobe.

Next up is a classic wax jacket, they always remind me of when I was a kid & I use to help my Mum & Dad on their market stall. I love the smell of a wax jacket when its wet & they make the best sound when the rain falls on them, its like being in your own waterproof cocoon. This is a Men’s version but their are women’s version.

Menswear to Wear

 
http://www.numbereightclothing.com/

I do, sometimes, feel a bit sorry for Men when they go shopping, they are usually stuffed into the back corner & either have “Teenage” or “Old Man” fashion (in the words of my boyfriend) to choose from. I do think it is harder for Men to find clothes on the high street, so thank goodness that http://www.numbereightclothing.com/ 
offer a great range of designer Menswear from the latest brands & hottest trends. It also means they don’t have to go shopping with you Woop Woop 😉
 
I am LOVING the heritage trend for Men right now with the use of heritage materials such as Tweed &  heritage styling such as the 3 Piece Suit! Which is amazing, I want Antony to get one. If you don’t feel confident enough to wear a 3 piece just yet then this Navy Check Blazer from Gant is the perfect solution. With a more subtle check print referencing Tweed this would look amazing at work or on a night out!

 Or if you are trying to introduce the Man in your life to the finer things then this Loake Luxury Shoe Care Box would make a perfect Christmas Present. As you all know I love anything vintage & this is reminiscent of how shoes were cared for.


How To …. FindThe Perfect Pair Of Jeans.

  

Everyone has a favourite pair of Jeans, ones that you wear over and over and over again! Even when they are full of holes you still can’t bear to throw them away. That’s why it is so hard to find the perfect pair. Triology Stores- http://www.trilogystores.co.uk/ stocks a great selection of denim brands from the classic designers to new must haves. They even have a comprehensive Denim advice section on their website.
 
Below are my Top 3 must have denim’s for A/W 2012
 

J Brand 811 skinny in Ignite

These jeans will last years a classic colour in a skinny style is perfect for wearing day or night. Wardrobe must haves!

These Skinny printed foil jeans by Current Elliott are perfect for this seasons Baroque trend. They would look amazing worn in the day dress down with chunky knits- keep it black to create a punk/ goth look which is another massive trend. They would also look amazing worn on a night out, I love them!

http://www.trilogystores.co.uk/hudson/hudson-juliette-skinny-in-exclusive-coated-merlot.aspx

These Hudson coated skinny jeans cover two MASSIVE trends, Ox Blood &  Leather, with their coated denim look they give the same effect as Leather or PVC. To finish them off they have zips up the front of the jeans, I think that you could wear them in the office as they are quite smart and you could definitely wear them out and get a few admiring glances.
