Christmas Clutches - Under £50

Hold Me

Finding the perfect party dress for the Christmas season can often be a headache. There's sequinned ones, silky ones, bodycon and maxi ones. Then you have to figure out how much to spend, especially when you know the Christmas sales will be in full flow not soon after. But let's imagine you have the perfect dress. What you need next is the perfect clutch.

This little selection above (all a steal at under £50!) are perfect for the party season and will be a perfect compliment to any Christmas dresses. My personal favourites are the purple French Connection number (currently on sale from £50 to £25!) and the pink book clutch from ASOS, a style we saw across the Street Style blogs back in September and a bargain at just £25! 

Which is your favourite?

1. Book Clutch, £25 by Asos
2. Furry Clutch, £40 by Miss Selfridge
3. Blue Lock Clutch, £30 by Miss Selfridge
4. Beaded Clutch, £26 by Topshop

I think blue might be my new favourite colour. This collection by 3.1 Phillip Lim has reinforced my love for blue. I've resolved that for the new year I'm going to save up my money and buy versatile pieces which I can wear for a long time without getting bored of them. I've  had my eye on a Zara coat for a while, but then, it went and broke my heart and disappeared. Lesson learnt to buy things when I see them!

Day To Night

This is one of my favourite looks that I've created lately. It has such a transition feel, an outfit that could easily go from day to night. Dressing it up with a piece of jewellery or a pair of heels transforms a simple cami and jeans into such a chic outfit.

Kasia Struss stars in Zara's November lookbook. 

Zara are giving us a lot of stripes, dots and monochrome at the moment and as always have some lovely winter coats and boots. But party pieces - I have my eye on the first skirt for Christmas.

I haven't done an Instagram post for a while as I have been a little bit quiet on the snapping front recently. Being out of London has reduced my opportunity for fashion photos but these are my favourites from September, October and November (told you it was a while). However it has meant that I can visit Hakamou, this amazing Hawaiian cocktail bar near my uni. The cocktails are honestly to die for and come in coconuts and pineapples! Suffice to say my friend and I were more than a little tipsy. Being back at uni also means it was time to purchase some essentials for winter, including this lovely black bag from Zara. I'm currently on the hunt for some flat black boots, so let me know if you have any suggestions!

New Kids on the Block

New things for November. I love this top because it's one of the few I (now) own that can be dressed up or down. Most of my tops are either 'day' or 'night wear so this is a night change. 
When the peplum trend hit the high street so many people had the same Topshop peplum tops that I couldn't bring myself to buy one (although saying that, every girl at my uni seems to own my leather jacket!). But this is boucle and not jersey so looks a little bit different. 
I also needed some new shoes that would last and found these beautiful studded brogues. I'm so tired of paying for ballet flats that wear out quickly, so I guess these are an investment piece!

I love this time of year where we're between the mild days of Autumn and the shivering days of Winter. By the time we get into the cold period the prospect of layering possibilities is exciting for me, and I am a sucker for a tailored winter coat. I have had my eye on a Zara leather and wool concoction for a while now and am saving my pennies one by one in the hope that it might soon be mine.

For now dressing is strictly on a day-to-day basis; some days still allow a lighter jacket (I am wearing my biker to death right now) whilst others are too cold for such nonsense. But let's assume it's one of the milder days right now and here is what I would want to wear. A shearling jacket in case the wind gets chilly, the dweeb-tee (I am back at university and back in geek mode after all), and cropped khaki denim, accessorised with an Alexander Wang bag, Zara courts, and as always, a Dannijo neck-piece.
