Regular readers will know that I have a little sideline The Alex Edit selling a curated selection of some of my favourite accessories and fashion that I’ve discovered through Wear & Where and my job as a journalist. With temperatures dropping and party season almost upon us (yikes!) I wanted to tell you about a few pieces that will not only make your heart beat faster, but may also solve some of your present buying dilemmas!
Getting ready for the Cold Snap
There is apparently a cold snap on the way, which may mean even mean snow! I love snow and I much prefer cold, crisp weather to drizzly grey days, so I am quite happy by this weather announcement, although whether the snow actually materialises remains to be seen. There is however, no doubt that it is definitely colder. I have been living in my leopard print snood and gloves since the temperature dropped and have been reaching for the cashmere to keep me warm. At times when the leopard just doesn’t quite go, I’ve been using my navy scarf with copper stars (similar to the one above) as there’s nothing as uncomfortable as a cold neck! I also rather like this pink and grey cashmere mix scarf, which pretty much suits all skin tones, and these cashmere hats with faux fur pom poms are just the business. And, there is a 10% discount on all cashmere, snoods, wrist warmers and scarves until end of Friday (17th November) with the code COLDSNAP10.
Make a Statement
Sometimes you just need one thing to stand out. These embellished earrings above are just gorgeous as is the glitter bolt sweatshirt I’m wearing in the top picture. The lightning bolt is very glittery in real, the feel is super-soft and the style is such that it’s easy to dress up or down. Also available in grey or burgundy. You can also make a statement with big slouchy totes – this one is 2-1, meaning you get a cross body thrown in as well (and all for just £50 – I know!) or with beautiful earrings. These small huggie hoops channel Maria Tash and have been an instant best-seller.
Whisper – Christmas is coming…
I know, I know, it is only November, but Christmas is on the horizon. If you are organised or even thinking about being organised. Then I have a fab range of cool Christmas jumpers (yes, there is such a thing!) as well as gifts, amazing party clutches and lots of cool jewellery to brighten up the greyest of days. Check out my Under £25 and Under £15 sections for affordable presents – for you and others! I also have a range of belts and leather cuffs that I’m selling offline, so email me if you’d like to know about those!
Thank you for reading and do let me know what you think!
