Get set for the Accessorize 25% off sale.

One of my favourite stores is bringing Christmas a little closer with a fabulous promotion. From Wednesday 30th November Accessorize will be running 25% off across the site, including gifts, with code ACCMD25A.

I was actually browsing in Accessorize today whilst in London, and was struck with the amazing range of beautiful items it had on sale, from chunky knit scarves to amazing Deco (yes that word again…getting a little obsessed I’m afraid) necklaces. There were also lots of cute items for mini fashionistas out there.

Here are a few fabulous items on offer.

Leopard Faux Fur earmuffs

Cute, warm and furry animal print, perfect for walking around those Christmas markets, or skating with a group of friends.

Chelsea Strappy Tote £32.00

This bag’s neutral colour is perfect as it means it will carry you (and your belongings…) from season to season.

Monochrome Wallet

This monochrome wallet is such a glamorous piece, it reminds me of something from Chanel. The perfect gift for any fashion lover.

Statement Squares Stretch Bracelet

This statement bracelet is the perfect jewellery item to revamp that little black dress. Stretchy, so should fit any size wrist and look amazing.

Chigwell Embossed Monogram Patent Bag

Another fabulous item that will have your friends thinking you’ve spent hundreds of pounds on a designer item. Really loving this shade of blue.

Sparkle Chic Wool Gloves With Pearls

These gloves are very ladylike, with a touch of Grace Kelly about them. Wear them with a full-skirted coat for that 1950s look.

Style Icon of the month – Lana Del Rey

Maybe she is a recreation, with newly inflated lips and a retro image. Frankly I don’t care. She has the most amazing voice and in Video Games, one of the best songs and videos of the year. She also has truly incredible personal style. I am of course talking about Lana Del Rey, who is my style icon for the month of November.

Lana has an old-fashioned film starlet feel. Huge eyes and the most talked about lips of the moment are teamed with Brigitte Bardot/Claudia Cardinale lustrous hair. And then there’s the clothes.

Lana describes herself as a ‘gangsta Nancy Sinatra’ and could well be her best judge. Her vintage style to me could best be described as pin-up. Think Cybil Shepherd in ‘The Last Picture Show’ crossed with Veronica Lake and you have Lana Del Rey. She mixes those retro prints and styles, mini hot pants, ladylike blouses and slogan t-shirts with the sorts of hoop earrings that aren’t usually seen this side of JLo. She is also no slouch in the designer department, wearing the Prabal Gurung floral print dress that had previously been spotted on SJP.

Lana is so visually exciting that I am really looking forward to seeing her blossom into a true style icon. I think this is definitely a case of watch this space.

Christmas decorations made for a Fashionista

I’ve just put my tree up..a little earlier than usual, but Joe was insistent and I as he has been a little under the weather, I thought this would be the perfect pick me up. But as I put my tree up, I was struck by how much the decorations reflect my personality. The tree, like the rest of my house, is filled with bags, shoes and dresses – a real fashion obsessives tree.

These days stores are just filled with the sorts of tree decorations, advent calendars and gift wrap that are ideal for the fashionista in your life. These are perfect as mini stocking fillers or just gifts to yourself as you get set for the festive season. Here are some wonderful items that celebrate Christmas in a truly stylish FASHION!
