Giving (and getting) clothes as presents is fairly high risk. Generally speaking I’m a big advocate of opting for vouchers or better still cash rather than actual garments. Clothes shopping is such a personal thing, so much comes down to size and fit both of which can vary enormously from brand to brand. It’s also, in my opinion, one of THE most enjoyable activites known to man so with a generous cheque or Selfridges store card you’re really giving your loved one the gift of a fabulous time. That said, now and again buying clothes for other people can be a success. When this magical collision of good luck and good taste occurs few things beat the joy of taking the togs you unwrapped on Christmas morning out for their first wintery spin. This adorable Boutique by Jaeger Deer jumper and Accessorize Fair Isle beret were two of my fave gifts this year. They’re exactly the kind of things I’d buy for myself and on several occasions this season, nearly did!
Did you get any clothes for Christmas? If so, will you be wearing them or putting them on ebay before New Year?
UPDATE: I stupidly didn’t read the “handwash only” lavel and put my deer jumper in the washing machine. Half the face came off, I’m so sad!
Love Ella. X
