On the 24th day of Christmas...


I wore Louis Vuitton!

I am so excited because not only is it Christmas Day tomorrow but because we are in Argentina we get to observe the Argentinian way of celebrating Christmas. Our family usually wait until the 25th for our festive treats but tonight, here in Buenos Aries, we will be having a traditional Noche Buena. First we start with a delicious feast under the stars of roast carrot with all the trimmings (thanks Frederico!) before an evening of dancing and fireworks. We have also been down to the market to buy our own "globos", colourful paper hot air balloons that take off into the sky when lit from inside. I can't wait to see ours join the others as they fly off into the night. Best of all we get to open half our pressies at midnight (we're saving the other half for our "English" Christmas tomorrow.) I have my paws tightly crossed for these Chloe boots, I know they're already practically last season but I must have them for my collection. The waiting list is as long as my ears and I am so far down I don't think I will ever get to the top!

p.s. One thing that isn't so great is that the hotel has been driving me mad with Christmas music. there is only so many times that you can hear Rudolf the bloomin red nosed reindeer. I'm like the Christmas music mugger and just pull the speaker plug out of the wall when no one is looking!

On the 23rd day of Christmas...

I wore Philip Lim!

Today I visited my first polo match, It was all very fast and exciting. I did a lot of cheering but had no idea for which side! I also fell in love with the players smart outfits, especially the boots so I insisted my guide Alessandro take me to the most exclusive polo store in the whole Of Buenos Aires so I could order a pair custom made just for moi. The camera on my iphone has gone on the blink but I had a search on the internet and this is the sort of thing they look like. Yummy aren't they and they'll match perfectly with my new super skinny VB jeans that I picked up at the airport.

Here's what I'm wearing this evening (Phil Lim again) we're going to a festive themed black tie event organised by some business partner of daddys so I will have to try and be on my best behavior and not sup to many of the famous Argentinian Ketango cocktails!

I can't believe it's only two more sleeps until Christmas day!

On the 22nd day of Christmas...

I wore Bottega Venetta!

Yum I just had the perfect Croissant for breakfast, they have their own french pastry chef here at the hotel which is lucky as i do insist on only the finest when I am on my hols. Today is the first day of summer and its beautiful and sunny with a clear blue sky so I thought I would match myself in with this gorgeous ultramarine silk number from Bottega Veneta. I also have two more for later...

...green for my afternoon in the great outdoors (well the park!) and red for watching the beautiful sunset from my balcony


This morning I also went to the famous Recoleta graveyard where Eva Peron is buried. It has a lot of skinny cats lounging around the place, Ruby would like it round here =;x) I laid a red rose on her tomb and had a good nose around. Some very impressive families have been buried there. I should mention us getting a spot to Daddy. Afterward we had afternoon tea at the Alvear Palace Hotel. It like the Ritz only better and more authentic. you know the sort of thing lots of glamorous old dears plus Americans with plastic surgery. I had scones with lemon curd and cream and chocolate cake and blue earl grey tea, twice.

I just had a pedicure in their gorgeous little spa and I now have bright red toenails! I'm wandering around the beautiful gardens writing this on my iphone. It really is stunning with fancy water features dotted around, old trees and the sound of birds tweetering away. The next door palace is derelict and looks spookily romantic. Apparently the old lady who owns it got jilted at the alter, left Argentina and refuses to sell. what a great novel that would make!

On the 21st Day of Christmas...

I wore Balenciaga!

and finally I've landed... in Argentina!! Buenos Aires to be exact. It's the first stop on my festive travels and I am so excited - and ever so slightly over heating which makes a nice change. I am staying at the Hyatt. When I arrived this morning they said there was no room in the old palace and I had to stay in the modern tower overlooking the palace. Absolutely not. So i had a little fifi strop and they gave me my room Thank God. As you know I'm a veggie so I had to have a word with the very handsome Argentinean head chef Federico who made a special menu for me. He knows how to work a carrot that's for sure! lunch has almost finished me off and I am having a little lie down on my giant bed. I've got the luxury of butler service as an early chrissie pressie from ma and pa so I might have to ring for a glass of champers. I need to celebrate I am one lucky bunny, perhaps it's the fact I have a total of 4 rabbit paws!

Here's the three other Balenciaga beauties I packed in my case

On the 18th Day of Christmas...

I wore Zac Posen!

I'm in a slight grump because I was meant to go off on my hols today but because of the snow in London my private flight has been postponed, grrrr! So anyway I'm going out to commiserate and what better to help cheer me up than a lovely pretty in pink Zac Posen dress featuring two huge bows, I feel a smile coming on.

On the 17th Day of Christmas...


I wore Oscar De La Renta!

...and partied the night away at the soiree to celebrate my book deal. The theme was moi of course so we had champagne carrot cocktails, lettuce blini's and teeny carrot cakes on huge gold platters carried by waiters in dicky bows and rabbit ears. The decor was a winter wonderland and was made to feel as if you were in a snow covered forest complete with twinkling stars. There was even a tiny stuffed owl that hooted randomly! Tree stumps covered with silky white fur (the finest faux of course) made perfect seating for when we could dance no more and to top it off at midnight it started snowing outside for real!



oh and I thought you might like to see these two outfits that I couldn't resist trying on when I was at the showroom, so cute!

On the 16th day of Christmas...

I wore Chris Benz!

...and continuing yesterdays shopping fest, today it's Sonny's turn. In case you were wondering I've given Sonny and Ruby strict instructions not to read the blog for a few days. However, I just know Sonny will have a peek. He is so naughty he wouldn't be able to help himself. So hello dear, I hope you like your Christmas pressies!

clockwise from top left, Rob Ryan print, vintage sunnies, vintage magic 8 ball, wooden iphone case, cute rabbit couple figurine

I've also packed a couple more Chris Benz outfits into my new suitcase...



I'm kinda going for the Amy Winehouse on her hols look with the headscarf!

On the 15th day of Christmas...

I wore Chanel!

I've got to get everything wrapped up for Christmas before I leave for hotter climbs on Friday and even though I have the family sorted I still have pressies to get for Ruby, Sonny and of course not forgetting darling little Stella. Today I've been cosying up on the sofa in Chanel knits with my trusty mac and a never ending mug of cocoa choosing some bits and bobs from my fave craft site etsy. I decided that although I am a shopping freak I still want to do my bit for the planet so I took the handmade pledge this year. I decided to shop for Ruby first because she has such similar taste to me all I had to do was imagine I was buying for myself and voila! Maybe my shopping spree will inspire you with your gift choices this year.


let me know if you liked them!

On the 14th day of Christmas


...and started packing a winter getaway, squeal!

I'm off on Friday so I only have a few more days to work out what I am going to wear... and remember the party that Ruby and I were planning? Well that's on Thursday so yet another fashion fix, oh well life throws these challenges at us sometimes and we just have to run with them.


I already packed these two pretty dresses

now this suitcase is all very well for posing on but it's not quite big enough for what I had in mind. I'm off out to pick up one of these...

see you tomorrow

On the 13th of Christmas....


I wore Marc Jacobs!

I visited the Marc Jacobs store yesterday and I just fell in love with this festive outfit, it matches perfectly with my new Christmas decs. I spent all of yesterday decorating and now the house looks like a yuletide bomb has exploded inside. There is sparkle and glitz everywhere you look and I keep banging my head on the giant ball of mistletoe hanging in the hallway!


I got some lush new baubles from Liberty that represent 3 of my 4 favorite cities - which obviously just happen to be the fashion capitals of the world. I am just missing Milan so I am in the process of composing a letter to the nice people at Bombki to request they make up a new set of their sweet city decorations featuring maybe the Duomo and a swish red Ferrari. Paws crossed that next year my tree will be complete...


I also just had to try on some slightly more summery choices because I am still pursuing my winter getaway and I intend to search out that illusive sun. Now which to choose - or maybe all three? so many outfits so little time.

On the 11th day of Christmas...

I wore Burberry Prorsum!

I'm paying my respects to the new British designer of the year by wearing Christopher Bailey for Burberry today and I thought the bag would come in handy for today's task. In our house it's the tradition to decorate on the 12th day of Christmas which is tomorrow, hurrah! so I am off to fill my giant bag with lots of decorations for the tree to add to my ever expanding collection. I just hope it will stand up to them this year. Last year it got rather weighed down and ended up crashing to the floor straight onto Aunt Ida's precious Louis Vuitton. "It's vintage darling" she shrieked, "utterly irreplaceable!" whoopsy daisy!

for anyone who might be interested the meeting with my new editor went fantastically, we refrained from the champagne as it was still early (though it was very tempting) and went for huge slabs of chocolate cake... I did manage to chat about the book a little in between mouthfuls - honest!

On the 10th Day of Christmas...


I wore Marchessa!

Sorry today's advent door has been a little delayed, truth be told I have been nursing a bit of a sore head whilst wearing my Chanel PJ's for most of today. So I bring you last nights outfit, instead - marvelous Marchessa which I wore to the British Fashion Awards (hence the sore head!) It was a riot as ever rubbing furry shoulders with the stars. Victoria and Kate made the headlines with their matching black gothic inspired outfits but I think I prefer my pouffy sixties homage!
