Wednesday Wish (with a Christmas Twist)


Wednesday Wish is that day of the week, where reality is put on hold for a few moments whilst I imagine what I would do if funds were unlimited and I could purchase complete luxuries without a care in the world.  However, it’s December, so let’s make the wishes a little more realistic.  For those of you who have psoriasis; for those of you who might know someone who does, and for those of you who quite simply like lovely things, I present my December Wednesday Wishes.  Some ideas of what would be a sure-fire hit if found under the tree.  So let’s un-wrap today’s goodies.

Last July I purchased a pair of the Mary Portas for Clarks wedge peep-toe shoe-boots (see here) and I can vouch for the fact that they are incredibly comfortable, extremely stylish and I loved wearing them.  It’s possibly a bit cold to be exposing toes at this time of year, so instead this is my suggestion for a pair of stylish ankle boots to jazz up an outfit with comfort guaranteed. The two tone fabric effect is an interesting detail and being a fan of wedges, I would be most happy to have these in my wardrobe.  Also available in brown.
 
Paul Costelloe has outdone himself this year with his gift range for Dunnes Stores.  I was instantly transported back to my childhood when I saw the furry hand-warmers that are worn around the neck.  Clearly not designed with someone of my advanced years in mind!  The fur snood on the other hand, is truly gorgeous.  It’s fluffy, it won’t irritate the skin, it’s warm, and would look fantastic with a range of coats and jackets.  At only €20, this won’t break the bank and I think it would make a super gift.  Also available in brown.
Since I did my post on Jo Malone, I have been alerted to the fact that she now has a new range, called Jo Loves.  Of course, now I’m dying to try it out and as a fan of Orange Blossom in her former range, I suspect that the Orange Tulle would be even more lovely in her new collection.
 
What would be on your December Wish List?

    1. Do you think? I think the fur would disguise the length of your neck ... I hadn't thought about that. Will have to try one on and see!

  6. I adore those boots - I got some cheap Next ones that will do me this year when funds are tight, but they will only last a season! I am hoping for some Jo Malone perfume too and the Zara jacket that Sue from Susie So So has!!

    1. Oh, an excellent choice - Sue's Zara jacket is gorgeous. And who doesn't love Jo Malone?! I'm hoping the boots will still be around in the sales after Xmas. One of the few advantages of being small is that the smaller shoe sizes (4) tend to be easier to find during the sales:)

  7. I checked out Jo Loves range when I was in Selfridges last year. Incredible scents but boy oh boy, the price tag is beyond exorbitant.

    1. How expensive is it? I'm not sure it's in Dublin yet. I must have a look in Brown Thomas. But I'll definitely be in London early next year so a trip to Selfridges will be on the cards .. even if only to have a sniff :)
