This year I went with my family and some friends for New Year to this delightful place. We ate pasties and mackerel, walked along the six beaches, visited museums and then joined the NYE celebrations. A truly good-natured event that kicks off as soon as it gets dark. From small children to the more elderly, thousands dress up and wander around the charming winding alleys and along the harbor front. There are no cars but hoards of people enjoying each other spectacular efforts. The pasty shops and bars are open as is the glorious beach around the habour. Time flies by and soon the midnight hour arrives and a glorious firework display lights up the heavens and is reflected in the water. This is one of the most inclusive events that I have ever attended and would recommend to everyone.

Here are our picks of the quirkiest Christmas baubles on the High Street. All under £10.00, many with further reductions as we near the big day. Some of these are good enough to have out all year and are more of a bit of secular fun rather than having any religious connotation.

A pair of tights in a deep shade of scarlet, accentuated by a delicate floral motif. The design is offset by a contrast waistband with the Gucci logo—an unexpected detail reminiscent of sportswear designs. Part of the Fall Winter 2019 collection, this accessory walked the runway under a kaleidoscope of lights and reflections.
A pair of tights defined by the House’s monogram pattern in its signature colour combination. First used in the 1970s, the GG logo was an evolution of the original Gucci rhombi design from the 1930s. Patterned tights continue to define the latest collections, the accessory bringing distinctive motifs to the forefront in a contemporary way.
Whether striped or spotty, patterned or plain, matching or odd, Paul Smith men’s soft-cotton socks provide the perfect splash of colour to add life to any outfit.
Shrimps Creative Director Hannah Weiland has been brightening up our wardrobes since 2013 and this season has presented one hell of an offering. Inspired by the iconic Queen of Country: Dolly Parton!
The collection launch was staged at Hannah Weiland’s favourite pub, The Cow on Westbourne Park Road, last week.
The Dolly Parton themed event was in keeping with the collections inspiration and featured a tribute act.
With catchphrases including “it costs a lot of money to look this cheap” Dolly Parton is iconic for her Rhinestone over the top fashion style. She is a one off and she embraces it! She is unapologetic and her confidence in her look is what makes her so fabulous.

Christie’s hopes that the exhibition will make Old Masters feel more accessible to a younger audience. The exhibition is open to everybody.” Several of the works are loans, though most are for private sales. Such is the synergy between the art and the fashion that the exhibition came about quite naturally, according to Sandra Romito, senior consultant for Christie’s Old Masters department.

Johanna Oritz; the Colombian designer has produced a capsule collection of four dresses modeled on her feminine, floral prints. It arrives in H&M stores around the world and online on December 3. The “pre-drop” will be followed by a full collection in March 2020.
The four-piece initial selection is a taster of what is to come. It includes 4 dresses in a range of silhouettes.

The March 2020 collection will be significantly larger and will include not just dresses, but also separates and swimwear.
