Christmas comes once a year, so it’s time to fashion yourself up!

Christmas Fashion at The Darling Mansions

The time has come to plan my own Christmas wish list, and although I have been leaving (quite a few) hints, I am hoping that something from the following selection will end up in my stocking. 

This is my dream Christmas day outfit….

Obviously Christmas means eating more roasties than usual, so this Maison Margiela jumpsuit is the perfect all day loungewear- smart enough to snazz up with these amazing new season Aquazzura leopard and zebra heels, which will add a little Christmas pizazz. 

This 80s style leather MISBHV two tone bike jacket with removable sleeves is a perfect statement, and will make my neighbours curtains twitch when I pop out for an afternoon stroll… and this double star ring by Alinka is I need for a subtle statement. 

My new years eve is set to be a glamorous affair. With a dress code of silver and gold, I don’t think I can manage the head to toe Barbarella look! However, I am eyeing up this sexy ruffled Ellie Saab jumpsuit, along with the snakeskin McQueen booties to dance away the night. 

The classic Oscar De La Renta gold leather jacket will break some matchy matchy rules and of course, every respectable princess has a blinging Rolex timepiece so she knows when it’s midnight!

Happy Christmas to you and yours. And happy shopping too!

If you are a regular reader, you will know I am a bit of an insomniac! And the lack of sleep coupled with my over worked, laptop staring peepers, means I’m always trying new potions and lotions to help me not look like I was up half the night! 

So when I came across BIOTRUE eye range for eyelids I thought why not! Anything to help refresh my lids at the end of the day, and the handy individually wrapped packs keep the pads safe. Not to be used as a make up remover, so you do all that jazz first, but they are a lovely way to finish off your ablutions and make your eyes feel fresh and perky. I use mine at night, but they would work equally as well in the morning- or anytime your eyes needed a pick me up. 

They are brought to you by contact lens experts BIOTRUE, so they are ideal for lens wearers too.
