‘Tis the season is almost upon us, so I wanted to share with you my ultimate gift guide of designer goodies from Farfetch...

Dior, Givenchy, Valentino and Chloe, are always on high rotation as some of my favourite designer options and I’ve hand-picked some of my season must-haves for gift giving this season. 

Whether you’re giving or receiving, when it comes to gift giving, I always opt for quality over quantity. With this in mind, if you’re looking at spoiling yourself this festive season, or want to drop a few helpful hints to your other half, I say stick to one key accessory that you are guaranteed to get wear out of for years to come.

If budget is no option then it’s all about a signature IT bag, or street-snap-worthy statement shoes…or both! Afterall, a girl can never have too many shoes or handbags…right?

When it comes to bags, my first visit is always the designer vintage category. Pick up a pre-loved, rare, Louis Vuitton, or Chanel, or Hermes for something extra, extra special. Or if you prefer something sparkly new, IT-girl-favourite Chloe will definitely turn heads.

From Jimmy Choo to Alexander McQueen, sandals to pumps, there is definitely something for every shoe lover. I often tend to go all out when it comes to my shoe decisions, so more is definitely more. Keep a statement pair of heels simple with a white tee and jeans, or opt for a bold look with a gorgeous cocktail dress.

If you’re on a bit more of a budget, then I’ve handpicked some of my favourite accessories which come in under $250. I think this Moschino belt is an absolute must-have for all fashion lovers, and instantly adds a splash of glam to a simple black dress or pair of shorts. Jewellery is always a fabulous gift, especially when you’re not sure where to start. I opt for fine pieces, which can be mixed and matched easily with existing jewellery. Always a winner.

And there you have it – a few of my fashion favourites. You can shop all thesestyles and more [here]

There are some dresses that were just meant to be worn and twirled in...

I picked up this knock-out of a dress from ASOS (here) and I wasn't surprised to see that it sold out almost immediately.

There is nothing that frustrates me more than seeing a style I love, only to not be able to buy it.

Unfortunately I can't help you with this exact dress, but I did track down three similar styles that would be perfect for the upcoming spring racing season here in Melbourne, or any event you want to turn heads at.
