Gift Guide For Christmas: Dance the Eve Away
Christmas is coming closer and so is the end of 2016. I enjoy this time of the year as a moment of introspection, of stillness, of looking back to and reflecting upon the months that have passed. It is a good opportunity for closure as well as for sketching out new directions and dreams.
At its best, Christmas time is all lights, open fires, the scent of mulled cider, homemade cookies, window displays at Liberty's, country walks, gift wrapping and letter writing. It is the promise of being kind, caring and inclusive.
With this Christmas gift guide, it is not my intent to lure you into joining the omnipresent shopping frenzy that also rules this season. I would rather like to encourage you to invest only in clothes and objects that you truly fall in love with, that light up your day (or years to come) and that you look forward to cherishing and having around you. As to follow the wise words of William Morris: "Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful." I have browsed the collections of many of my favourite mindful fashion brands and the following selection of high-quality pieces and responsible craftsmanship is what I deem worthy of delight and possibly magic.
