Tory Burch make-up is coming!

Tory-Burch-make-up

If you’re a Tory Burch fan, you’ll want to mark January 20th on your iCal. Joining Aerin and Michael Kors, it’s the latest cosmetics (and fragrance line) to arrive in the UK from the Estee Lauder beauty stable.

As with Aerin, Kors and even Tom Ford, it’s all about the angular packaging with golden accents. (Does Estee Lauder only have one lipstick mould?) But if you’re a Burch fan then I think you’ll love the distinctive orange and gold casing complete with double T insignia. British Beauty Blogger has the story here

Today’s the day – the Mr Porter sale is here!

Mr-Porter

The Mr Porter international sale went live today – at last! The US sale started a few days ago but I’ve had a look and there are still some crumbs left for the rest of us.

As usual, I’ve hunted out the pieces that I think work for both guys and girls, so here’s my edit of what we can steal. Personally, I’m all about the Raf Simons knit and the LVC pocket tee. A classic cotton pocket tee is stupidly hard to come by these days so I stockpile these when I see them…

What’s your sale shopping strategy?

I’m not a fan of sale shopping for the sake of it. I prefer to shop with a purpose so my sale strategy tends to be around useful pieces or one-of-a-kind things you’ll never see again.

Of the sale buys I’ve spotted already, the distinctive Miu Miu coat is only worth buying if you absolutely adore those spots (as I do) because it’s such a season-specific piece. But it’s a great standby for weddings etc and will look as good worn casually unfastened as primly zipped.

The Carven jacket is a good price for the quality and versatility (the faux fur collar comes off so you’ll still be wearing this come spring. Plus click on the picture and you can get another 10% off when you use the code XMAS10). And although the Dolce & Gabbana jewelled heels are still quite pricy, they’re worth it to me as it’s rare to find walkable evening heels that are such a dramatic talking point.

Blue Christmas!

Navaz - DRG

I absolutely adore this selfie Christmas card sent to me by the team at Jo Malone London. When this photo was taken back in the summer at their Christmas preview, I had no idea it would pop into my inbox several months later as a GIF. But here’s me and Santa swathed in matching blue outfits (completely coincidentally I might add), surrounded by Jo Malone’s jumbo baubles, bows and splendid cream boxes.

This just leaves me to wish a Merry Christmas to all Disneyrollergirl readers, partners and blog buddies. It’s been an amazing year and I can’t wait to see what 2014 brings us!
