The Christmas Sweater

Mmmmm…love it! Or hate it? In the UK we have this tradition it’s called ‘The Christmas jumper’ think back to Mr. Mark Darcy from Bridget Jones’s Diary, he was hot but not his Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer jumper!!!

  • In the pictures are a Lego Santa black jumper
  • A quite nice red jumper with a cream heart and sparkly gold reindeer antlers, I like that one it’s kinda cute and low-key lol.
  • The dreaded Christmas Penguin with Santa hat and snowballs! The jumper itself is a lovely mid blue which is quite pleasant.
  • Christmas tree and gifts with delicate snowflakes not for me! The jumper is again a lovely royal blue. A black jumper with a red nose Rudolph with gems hanging from his antlers.
  • Then there’s this one I am afraid of Christmas pudding with a sprig of Holly on the top. No, it doesn’t work for me. The last thing I want is to look like is a Christmas pudding!

What do you think? Christmas jumper/sweater… would you give one a home this Christmas? 🎄🎄🎄

Girls… introducing the studded jeans!

Oh how I love, love these. Not only are they tactile with sparkly gem, diamonds, pearls, and disco balls, they’re fab fashion statements.

From small gems to huge full-on gems and studs, Christmas is around the corner so treat yourself. Check out your high street and online search for studded jeans.

Pictures show an array of studded jeans. In black, faded blue, and indigo. Some have that designer rip. Love it or hate it…it’s back and blinged up!

Some of the designs just have little discrete studs on pockets, while others are to the side or above the knee or even around the rip. Or spectacular full on bling running the full length of both legs which could be tricky to wash. I would suggest inside out in a pillowcase.

Enjoy the fun ladies get some bling in your life I got mine, cuz Diamonds 💎 R a girl’s best friend!

Check and Tartan prints are awash on the catwalk…

with a strong Scottish tartan influence, so why not be seen about town sporting one of these?

  • Style 1 is a typical green check with fragments of navy blue, yellow, and red, this a traditional tartan check.
  • Style 2 and my personal favourite, is an oversized cream background red check with lines of red, green, yellow, and blue criss-cross to form a chequered pattern.
  • Style 3 is a bold grey black and cream check with a fringe tassel trim. This is a fabulous statement scarf, worn with a black cocoon coat, you’ll be bang on trend this autumn and winter season.
  • Style 4 is a red and black check simple and stunning with a fringe tassel.

Search for Chequered scarves. Winter’s gonna be fun!

Angela (Angie) Roberts

and the high streets have cozied up with a fabulous new collection of winter warmer coats*. What is your style and where do you shop?

  1. In the first large picture, the model is wearing a wool mix pale grey coat classic and stylish, with an oversized camel coloured scarf wrapped several times around her neck. In her right hand, she is sporting a rather lovely large camel coloured handbag topped off with indigo skinny jeans.
  2. In the second picture, top of the frame, the model is wearing a black cocoon coat also a wool mix. Under that, she is dressed in a black shirt and black jeans. This look can also be dressed up with a sparkly jewelled scarf in a colour of your choice.
  3. The bottom picture shows a model wearing a classic parka in pale grey with an oversized fur hood for maximum warmth. I love a bit of faux fur trim.

Tell us where you shop and what’s your style of winter coat?
