Christmas Wish List - A Bit of Luxury

When it comes to designer labels and luxury items, I do like to save up and spend a bit more on things I know will wear well, last longer and are generally of a much better quality. Of course, it would be lovely to receive some of my favourite luxury pieces as a Christmas gift too. These are some of the things that are high on my Christmas wish list. Whether I'll get any of them is another story but a girl can dream and there is no harm in a little online window shopping.

Nude Christian Louboutin shoes

These are quite high on my Christmas wish list. I already have a black pair and would love to add a nude pair so I have the two staple colours in my wardrobe. I love the style of the Pigalle or the So Kate in the 100 heel. These are so elegant and sexy with the flash of red on the sole. These shoes start at around £455 but they will never go out of fashion. A great investment piece and a great Christmas gift!

Chanel Boy Flap Bag

Not only do I have a huge love for shoes, I also love handbags. I don't own any high end, luxury bags but a Chanel bag would be high on my wish list and the first luxury bag I'd go for. Again, like the Christian Louboutin shoes, they are timeless and a great investment piece because they always increase in value. My favourite style is the Chanel Boy Flap bag, a modern take on the classic Chanel Flap bag. It has such beautiful hardware and I think it looks quite biker chic which is definitely my style. It comes in different colours, designs and sizes but it isn't cheap. Prices can start from around £2900 for a small bag and can go up to over £4000. They do hold their value though; not that I would sell one if I got it!

Jimmy Choo Miami Trainers

Yes, River Island probably have a pair identical to these but I've been lusting after a pair of Choos for ages and in particular, their Miami trainers. On the sole of the trainers are beautiful gold stars and the Jimmy Choo logo is visible on a gold band across the back of the shoe and on the laces. The Miami trainer comes in a variety of colours but I'd definitely go for a very bold or very sparkly pair, like these champagne glitter ones. These cost £350 however, unlike Christian Louboutin, Jimmy Choo holds a sale at the end of the season so there is a chance you could hold out until after Christmas and get them a bit cheaper. 

My Lady Dior Bag

I told you I had a thing for bags and shoes! Dior is one of my favourite designer brands. I love their make up and I adore their perfumes. I recently discovered the My Lady Dior bag and what I love about it is you can customise your bag with 3 lucky badges from their own selection. They clip on to the shoulder strap so they will be visible as you wear your bag. There are quite a few colours available and different types of leather too. It's not the biggest bag in the world but it's really sweet and I think would be the perfect going out bag. It costs around £2500.

Christian Louboutin Fifi Botta Calf

These are definitely "going out" boots. I love black knee high boots and have a few pairs of them but they are flats and I wear them more casually. If I owned these boots, they would certainly be kept for best. They are so beautiful. I've tried them on before and they look amazing on but the size 5 was too tight on my foot and they didn't have a 5.5 or a 6 for me to try. Christian Louboutin are notorious for not being true to size in most of their styles so unless you've tried them on in the style you want, don't be asking anyone to get you a pair as a present. When it comes to my shoes, I do like to keep classic so I can wear them year after year and my boots are no exception. Louboutin has some quite quirky styles but I just love the simplicity of these boots. These cost £795 which is pretty good for the 100 heel size. For a 140, you're looking at almost £1000.00. 

Whatever is on your Santa list, I hope you get what you are wishing for.
