I really like these designs as they are sophisticated and polished, but by no means boring. I think they have the perfect mix of polish and edge. Check out the clothes here or purchase them online here. (Photos from scandalhousedesigns.com).

December 5: Black and White
I've always been a big fan of this classic combination and I think this great look from Banana Republic is just great. (Photo from bananarepublic.com).
December 6: Blazer
I'm starting to wonder if I should invest in a great blazer. I keep thinking of great ways in incorporate it into my daily style and I think it would be a great investment. Perhaps I should start with this lovely one from Brian Reyes. (Photo from shopbop.com).
December 7: Pencil Skirt
I'm a huge fan of pencil skirts, though I've notice most of the skirts I own have more volume. It's on my list for Boxing Day shopping for certain. I think this one from DNKY is a great place to start. (Photo from shopbop.com).
December 8: Brights
Anyone who knows me know I'm a sucker for bright colours and, in this case, brighter is better. If I had these jeans from 4 stroke, I would smile every time I looked in my closet (they come in pink as well). They're very bright and I think they could work great in an edgy look. I absolutely adore them. (Photo from shopintuition.com).
I hope you saw something you liked in my picks and hopefully I won't lose my USB again and I can try to spread the posts out rather than cram them all in one.

Today's item in one at the top of my list (I've already instructed my boyfriend that he can get me these to simplfy his shopping): Slippers! There are few things better than snuggling your feet into a nice warm pair of slippers so I chose my favourites.
I really like these two pairs from Daniel Green. The brown and blue look lovely together and that pair just makes me want to slip them on immediately. I'm also fond of the pattern on the other pair. It's very pretty, though they don't scream comfort the way the first pair does. (Photos from shoebuy.com)
These red cable booties from La Vie en Rose scream comfort to me as well. The pom poms are a cute addition and I can definately see myself curling up by the fireplace with a cup of cocoa in these. (Photo from lavieenrose.com).
Victoria's Secret is a standby for sleepwear and lingerie and these great slippers show why. There were so many great prints I couldn't narrow it down and so I had to include my three favourites. (Photos from victoriassecret.com).
Let me know what's topping your wishlist this holiday season and I may be able to do an advent for it. Either way, it's always fun to share!
