Panic Buy???

Hey fashionistas, how are your festive preparations coming along?

I have spent the past week dashing through the shops on a mission to buy presents, decorations, tableware, crackers and a rude gift amounting to no more than £2.50 (don’t you just love secret santa)

Is it complete? Am I settled in front of an open fire sipping baileys, eating yule log and watching Richard Curtis movies? NOT!

I fear the trouble with shopping is that it is just too distracting. How can I possibly find presents for people when the shoe section is enticing me, as are the pre-Christmas discounts in most stores. Then there is coffee, lunch, a make-up trial at MAC and a neck massage – yes really, on the ground floor.

So, it is with the afore mentioned Baileys and open fire that I write this blog entry and purchase afore mentioned non-purchased Christmas presents online. Along with a number of others apparently, as forecasts* predict that December’s online sales will amount to 5 billion pounds.

So far,  I have ordered for the husband, mother-in-law, kid, brother and next door neighbour but one. All will be gift wrapped and delivered no later than Wednesday at 4.41pm –  and not one impulse purchase has been made for yours truly.

Here is my pick of the best online, fashion minded Christmas gifts, for him, her, them and us!

Are you suffering from Stuffocation?

This week saw a very interesting, and very relevant, feature in the Evening Standard about a 21st century problem penned as ‘Stuffocation’

The afflicted will find themselves in situations such as, writer James Wallman says, “Having a bulging wardrobe but not being able to find anything to wear, having to fight your way through piles of stuff that you do not use to find the thing that you need, and on receiving a present, not having the gut reaction of ‘thank you’ but rather ‘why would I want this?’. With up to half of Londoners now feeling this way.”

We are now realising that we do not need mountains of stuff for status, symbolism or material recognition but instead we  need to start streaming our lives, downsizing, recycling and reducing our waste.

He suggests thaat everyone should use the festive season wisely. Start by clearing out anything that is not needed anymore, and also think about your gift ideas. Do not buy more stuff, but opt for experiential presents instead. Make a memory not a mess!

Well, there is no easier place to start than ClosetBox. First clutter stop should always be the wardrobe. So, if you haven’t worn it for years or it doesn’t fit, then get camera snapping and posting – especially with our festive free listing code for the whole of December. Xmas2013

Get selling and enjoy the freedom. (and profit of course!)

VICTORIA BECKHAM

What you ask – her shoes, sunglasses, jetset life, husband….?

Well I say, all of the above, but what I am totally obsessed with is her fashion label. A design house that has stunned the fashion pack in the past few years, and has given many of the world’s most elite fashion designers a run for their money. Victoria Beckham has become one of the world’s most influential style guru’s both on and off of the catwalk.

Here is some of the Victoria Beckham collection featuring clean, minimalist and classic pieces that will last for seasons.

Here at ClosetBox, we LOVE fashion. Womenswear, Menswear, Accessories, Vintage, High St, Designer, LFW, NYFW……. the list is endless.

So we thought it would be nice to share our very favourites things with you. An ode to our total fashion obsessions as part of the weekly blog, starting with……..

SOPHIA WEBSTER

Not since the 00’s when the Sex in the City ladies marched through the NY streets wearing their Manolos has there been such an exceptional, alternative and ‘I will not eat for an entire month to buy them’ type of shoe designer.

British shoe designer Sophia Webster creates shoes that dreams are made of. Her collections are like works of art that are colourful, playful, cheeky, sexy and above all, completely and utterly beautiful!

From classic with a twist, to quirky and outrageous, they are shoes that will have heads turning and feet skipping.

Here are some of the designs from the Sophia Webster AW13/14 collection.
