MY CHIC AND NOIR DREAM PRESENT LIST

Now, in the run-up to Christmas, there is a focus on presents. Retailers are promoting their suggestions, shoppers are searching the stores or browsing on-line to find the perfect gifts for the important people in their lives. Not everybody celebrates Christmas but for most people it is the holiday season.  It's a time to spend with family and friends, party with work colleagues and to exchange gifts.

This is my dream list of those 10 chic and dark presents that I would love to receive, beginning with inexpensive but delightful gifts and ending with the epitome of luxury and elegance.



GREEN & BLACK'S ORGANIC DARK COLLECTION, an assortment of 12 miniature bars of dark chocolate.


BLACK FAUX FUR BANDO from H&M



VOGUE PARIS - December/January issue of FRENCH VOGUE, with Vanessa Paradis on the cover

or better still,

a year's subscription of the magazine, the authority on chic. ( vogue.fr ).



NATorigin BLACK LENGTHENING MASCARA.
Made from 98.5% naturally sourced ingredients, this hypoallergenic mascara is so gentle on the eyes.



CHANEL LE VERNIS in ROUGE NOIR.  CHANEL'S iconic darkest red nail polish has inspired their Christmas makeup, "Collection Rouge Noir Absolument".






BLACK LACE/VELVETY FLOCK BRA & SHORTS,
with purple velvet bow trim, 
from MARKS & SPENCER'S Limited Lingerie range.



BLACK LACE AND MESH BODYSUIT from H&M.


YVES SAINT LAURENT BLACK OPIUM Gift Box. The sparkly black box, tied with black satin ribbon, contains a 30ml Eau de Parfum spray, a black waterproof eye pencil and a black mascara.  I love this fragrance - a blend of white florals, black coffee and vanilla.



SAINT LAURENT CLASSIC
NANO SAC DE JOUR BAG
in black grained leather with
a silver padlock and SAINT
LAURENT signature.  In my dreams!!!








I'll graciously receive my lovely presents wearing my new BLACK EMBROIDERED VELVET TOP from H&M, teamed with black skinny jeans.



Velvet has appeared again this autumn ready for the party season. I love Saint Laurent's Black Velvet Babydoll Mini Dress with an A-line skirt trimmed at the waist with a zipper and crystal studded bow.
