While Christmas isn’t just about gifts, if you’re anything like me, you still like to be nosey and see what everyone else received. So just incase you were wondering what I got, here’s a few of my favourites this year.
Firstly, clothing. From my family I received a new Comme Des Garçons PLAY shirt from the Gold collection. I love my grey version and wear it all the time so I’m sure this new one will also be getting a lot of wear. The embroidered gold heart really stands out and adds a luxurious feel to what is essentially a plain white tee. Next up, a Camouflage Sweater from Topman. While I don’t usually wear loads of colour and patterns, this sweater has that faded worn in look and goes well with the rest of my wardrobe.
Next up I received the classic black Converse All Stars from my brother. I have been wanting them for a while so was glad to get them as I’m really keen to build up a wardrobe of classic items. With that in mind, I also received the adidas Superstars in the classic white colour way with black stripes. There is also some gold detail on the shoes which adds to that retro feel and has a nod towards the CDG shirt.
Moving on to accessories and grooming, I got this simple khaki zip around wallet from A.P.C, one of my favourite brands. There’s not a lot of space inside, but this will be perfect to take out on a night out as it’s so slimline. I also received this chunky keyring from A.P.C which I will eventually attach to my car fob. I have already reviewed The Grown Alchemist Amenity Kit so won’t talk about it again but you can read more about it here.
Lastly, entertainment. From my brother I received the Louis Vuitton New York Travel guide. I am a huge fan of travel guides and love reading about new places and planning future travels so they’re always a welcome gift. While I’m not sure where 2016 will take me at the moment, I would love a quick break to New York again during the summer where this will come in handy.
I also received quite a few CDs (yes, they still exist) and DVDs for my collection, with the Amy Winehouse documentary, Amy, and the new City and Colour among my favourites.
I hope you all had a great festive break!
