granny, knit me a jumper for christmas
Firstly, apologies for the HUGE lack of posts. Usual excuses.
But Christmas is exactly a month away and I'm putting together my Christmas list and letter to Santa already. I've been saving this post for a while but wanted to wait nearer to Christmas. I thought that it was now an appropriate time to post now about Christmas knits. As I write this, I'm reminded of Christmas in Harry Potter and Mrs Weasley's presents of knitted jumpers arriving on Christmas day.
Down the catwalk, we saw this trend at Stella McCartney with her oversize knits combined with the Christmas patterns. Some high street stores have also followed the trend, but in general less Christmas-sy. Topshop has had some patterned knits in, including a rather cosy looking printed cardi that I had my eye on, which I then realised my friend had already bought (isn't it annoying when that happens!)
Time to get the Wham! & co. out to get you in the mood for Christmas. Hopefully I'll post more then too.
p.s. i've mentioned the word christmas ten times in that post - can you tell i'm excited?

from Miss Selfridge. I actually first saw it in the shop a couple of weeks ago, but after seeing in it this photoshoot from fashion156.com, I want it even more. I love the print, and the way it pleats at the bottom. I like the way it is styled; with the chunky knit belted in and the knee high socks with Dr Marten boots.
That's £45 of my birthday money...worth it?

This Little Piggy Went to Prada
It was my birthday on tuesday *hands out party rings and iced gems* and my friend mollie got me the lovely "This Little Piggy Went to Prada" book which has gorgeous illustrations. It contains "nursery rhymes for the Blahnik Brigade", one of my favourites being:
Cobbler, cobbler, mend my shoes.
Careful please, they're Christian Lous.
Those red soles, they'll never date,
They'll still be hot in Spring '08.
