Thought I’d just pop up and seeing how you’re all doing in the run up to the festive season. How’s the Christmas shopping going? Hopefully we’re helping you out a bit on that one, here at the ‘Q’.
Different question though, are we all sorted outfit-wise for the upcoming Christmas and New Year parties? What about those glorious get-together lunches and family reunions?
Well, if you’re struggling, visit The Style List over on our website to see our latest fashion trends, including our Velvet Touch look, with sumptuous and luxurious outfits for day or night. This is everywhere at the moment, it’s such a huge trend.

But whether it’s ‘in’ or not, it’s certainly way up there in my book (especially at Christmas). There’s just something so incredibly rich about the fabric itself.
I have fond memories of being about seven years old and my mum buying me a red velvet party dress with a white fur trim! I truly felt like royalty in it (with my black patent shoes, of course). Pity I don’t have a photo to show you (although it’s probably best actually!).
Anyway I have selected a couple of my favourite pieces from the look for you:
Pleated Stretch Velvet Cold Shoulder top from Dennis Basso – I love it! I wore it for the launch of the Honora Pearl Christmas Today’s Special Value launch a couple of weeks ago and got so many compliments.
Velvet Zip Through Dipped Hemline Tunic from Join Clothes – Now this one is on my wish list.
I just love the Navy option. It’s a stunning midnight velvet look and also a gorgeous alternative to black.
And if you’re thinking velvet is only for those special occasions, while you’re browsing pay close attention to the many more casual designs available – including leggings and bomber jackets (great gift ideas too!).
So wrap yourself in luxury velvet this festive season,
Lots of love,
