It’s finally Christmas.
Chilled time with the family, the food, the mulled wine, the kindness and the calm. Whatever gets you into the festive spirit, make sure you enjoy it to the fullest and breathe out a year that has been tough on us all. ’Tis is the season to be jolly, let’s leave the heavy unloading to New Years Eve.
Let’s not live in denial though, because end of December also means party season at its very peak and I’ve proudly had more Champagne this month that I’ve had the entire year. On the sartorial front, it’s high season to get yourself equipped with something glittery to not blend into the background like a total wall flower, you got to have a little bit of a humour to get yourself into that right festive spirit.
Star studded LBD’s, slip on tuxedo dresses and eye-catchingly sharp heels is exactly what River Island’s current party collection looks like, so I decided to embrace it fully. We shot the latest version of ‘Style Tribe’ on a night out in London, and this is pretty much what the pre game looked like. Spoilt with choice on what to wear, champagne and a butler call button… Getting ready is half the fun, that applies to everything from the all mighty Christmas celebrations to a single night out. The secret is - don’t leave everything to last minute, in fact don’t leave anything to last minute. My New Year’s resolution… For the 10th year in a row.
