I’ve cooled it a tiny bit on the old clothes-buying lately, partly because it’s Christmas but partly because I’m more interested in investing, of late, than in fast fashion – which is why, maybe, I’ve bought three pairs of rather expensive ankle boots (the same ankle boots in three colours, I might add) from Buffalo. Hmmm.

In any case, I love those boots and, since I bought them, I haven’t wanted to wear any other shoes. I can walk miles in them, despite their heel, which is something new for me! I am the worst with heels. But, in between buying ankle boots and sequined jumpers from Asos (amaze!) I’ve resisted the urge to buy, among other things, this Kenneth Jay Lane bangle.

It’s on Gilt right now, the most amazing designer discount site in the world. Since it started delivering to Ireland my finances have suffered a serious blow – but look, my Christmas tree has come on in leaps and bounds!

Yes, that is a disco on my Christmas tree. I just don’t know when to stop so I keep lavishing it with decorations! It currently looks quite amazing. Geishas and Santas and disco balls!
