Here’s the latest weekly DRG STYLE INDEX ranking, a round-up of the brands currently buzzing on my radar…
1. NAOMI CAMPBELL AND JOURDAN DUNN FOR BURBERRY SS15
Oh to be a fly on the wall of the new Burberry ss15 campaign featuring Naomi Campbell and Jourdan Dunn. I love the colourful energy of this campaign and – note to Santa – as a key focus of the collection, the trench coats are being made available to buy from today at Burberry.com (with the rest of the collection on sale globally from January 5th).

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.
Buying clothes online isn’t always straightforward. Accessories on the other hand? A different story. Monnier Frères, the accessory etailer has one of the best accessory edits on the web, including Celine sunnies, that Acne box clutch and leathergoods from one of my favourite quiet-luxe brands, Valextra.
When you buy from Monnier Frères you get worldwide delivery in 24 hours and guaranteed free returns within 30 days. If you’re still not sold, I have even better news. I’ve been given an exclusive code for my readers that allows you £80 off when you spend £250. Just enter disneyrollergirl80 in the discount code box when you check out. I very rarely do discounts or giveaways on here but Monnier Frères is a great site worth bending the rules for.
If you’re planning on selfgifting a handbag or accessory from the likes of Alexander Wang, Chloe, Valentino or any of those other usual lux suspects, you may as well take advantage of this deal. Here are a few suggestions to get you started…
