Festive Fashion

Normally for me Christmas Eve is spent in the local pub, but this year I'll be spending it at home as family friends will be away from Edinburgh for Christmas.  Instead I'll be building a gingerbread house and making the mince tarts I posted last week so I'll need to be wearing something comfy and cosy.

Knit Leggings - New Look
Penguin Jumper - Topshop
Knitted Socks - Christmas present

Christmas day will be a slightly formal affair for me and my family.  Normally it's just me with my parents but this year my brother and sister in law will be joining us.  In the past few years I've pretty much worn leggings and a t-shirt so this year I'm going to be a bit more fancy...and you can't be fancy without bubbles!

Jumper - Zara
Belt - Primark
Skirt - Forever 21
Shoes - Topshop

On Boxing Day I always go to visit family in Glasgow and we have a big party of about 20 of us so I like to be a bit more dressed up.  This year I'm going super glam with sequins and a fur jumper...and again there's bubbles! It is Christmas time after all...

Jumper - H&M
Leggings - H&M
Shoes - Marks and Spencer

Brand Focus : Alexander McQueen

Alexander McQueen is one of the first designer brands I fell in love with when I started getting into fashion.  I adore the couture feel of the collections but pieces can still be worn in everyday outfits without seeming 'over the top'.  His catwalk shows were absolutely breathtaking and when I heard of his death in 2010 I was completely heartbroken.
