It is almost Chriiiistmas!
I could not have purchased gifts for any one else however, but I did get down to Posh Totty Styles in Brighton final weekend to gather my fabulous new necklace: a bespoke pendant in rose gold. It is a tiny plectrum engraved with the word “Something”. You know why.
As per the pic above, I’m wearing it with my gold apple pendant – once more, you know why.
Practically nothing like a Beatles statement to make me smile.
And in additional delighted news, H&M’s Wes Anderson-directed Christmas ad starring the fantastic Adrien Brody has warmed my heart.
My quantity 1 director has a healthful appetite for 1960s style, music and icons, so no surprise that John Lennon’s Satisfied Xmas (War Is More than) characteristics at the finish.
You will also hear a cute, choral rendition of Small Drummer Boy – a nod, I suspect, to David Bowie. An additional 1 of Anderson’s heroes.
Have a watch and see if it brings a tear to your eye.
As nicely as creating me all smushy and emotional, the ad propelled me down to H&M to verify out the Christmas “Come Together” collection: there’s a lot to adore.
I’ve incorporated 1 of H&M’s Conscious pieces in my “five gold things” edit for the month, a collection of 5 60s inspired outfits with a golden touch, great for the vintage lover’s Christmas celebrations.
I wanted to place 1 appear collectively from existing collections on the higher street: as nicely as the green/gold jumper from H&M, in the 1st appear I’m wearing a velvet shift dress from Gap, tights from Accessorize and cherry red Dr Marten’s. Finishing touch: winter berry lipstick.
It is an quick appear to place collectively with lots of 60s spirit – and it is a fantastic option for casual Christmas events.
Subsequent up is a Christmas classic. I picked up this beautiful gold tunic with fluted sleeves from a vintage shop on Holloway Road.
A genuine late 60s piece, the gold thread sparkles and the gorgeous print tends to make me assume of Rishikesh…at Christmas? Perhaps.
I’m wearing it with black and white peep toes from Jones and layered silver and gold chains to add to the hippie twist. Tights, sheer. No compromise.
Subsequent up, here’s a mish-mash of higher street and vintage. I’m wearing a sleeveless vintage shift, with gold embellishments and trims, with a previous-season navy top rated from Warehouse.
Gold tights and (existing season) navy dolly footwear from Clarks comprehensive the appear: it is a fantastic day-to-evening outfit, if that is your poison.
This subsequent dress I adore. It is an uncommon lingerie-meets-partywear style from the 60s, picked up at a vintage shop off Brick Lane.
The burgundy lace layer tends to make the gold sparkle to perfection. The gold bow…60s-tastic.
I wore it a couple of years back for my 60s-inspired wedding anniversary celebration and am stepping out right here in vintage Kay’s heels and gold tights.
And for the golden finale, what shouts 60s Christmas louder than a vintage gold Missoni mini dress?
Louder than bombs.
This is styled really just with vintage gold sixties shoes…and it could nicely be my Christmas Day outfit…
What ever you determine to put on this Christmas have a delighted, peaceful and groovy time xx
