winter luxe

Winter Luxe

You’ve bought the gifts and elbowed your way through the pre-Christmas/Black Friday week sales., attended more parties than you intended. At the back of your mind, only one question is left unanswered… In a time when all are swaddled in fleece and sherpa knits, how to look like a winter princess on the big day.. or indeed any winter glsmorous at-home. whatever you’re celebrating? everyone’s coming to yours/ you need to knock ’em dead at those home soirées. What on earth to wear? Woolly socks and oversized sweaters?

Not likely: this calls for a seductive luxe that’s more “The Holiday” than Hygge. But before you spend a small fortune on white cashmere to look like Cameron Diaz, reach for your lushest, most languid party dress, get a pedicure,  throw off the bed socks, and enjoy…

In the depth of winter, I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer.

It comes was no surprise then that some of my favourite winter looks come from The Land of Summer itself: Los Angeles, by way of our multi-talented stylist/MUA/ multi-hyphenate friend, Luca Buzas, who moved there recently and rapidly teamed up with a slew of gorgeous models, killer photographers and filmmakers. Well, . she’s an LA Woman now, what did we expect? They’re not bashful. Like this:
