Still haven't found the perfect gift? Don't worry, if Brenda's picks didn't finalise your wish-list, check out one of our favourite bloggers Talisa of Badlands and her Benah wishlist, all in shades of beautiful pistachio greens, ivories and timeless navy blue. There's still one more gift guide to go. Hopefully by then we'll have all your Christmas wishlists wrapped up in a big red bow.
one. Lola Leather Clutch in Pistachio - $350
This clutch is a beauty. We love the softly, softly pale green colour, the mix of leather and suede and the handy card pockets on the interior. And trust us, this colour is going to be everywhere this season. We're sold out, but our good friends at My Chameleon have Lola in all her glory. And if you're happy to wait, email email@example.com because we're going to have more next season!
two. Alex Leather Ipad Wallet in Pistachio - $190
In that same glorious mint green shade as the Lola clutch, the Alex Leather Ipad Wallet is a regular multi-tasker. The perfect gift for techno-philes and wide-eyed travelles alike. We've only got the one, so get in quick...
Edit: SOLD. Merry Christmas to the lucky recipient!
three. Karma Silk Scarf in Envy - $190
This Christmas you should give a scarf as a gift. Why? Because you can tie them in a million ways - trust us, we've tried them all. As a headscarf or a turban, a necklace or a sling, a wrap-around or a kerchief, a sarong or a bag accessory... They're all good! And this Karma scarf, in beautifully soft silk and featuring this season's signature graphic Aztec-inspired print, will slot beautifully into anyone's wardrobe, right alongside chambray shirts, breton tops and tapered slacks.
four. Ryder Sandals in Ivory - $285
Sandals. Are. The. Best. Things. Ever. Who could fail to smile opening a pair of pristine ivory Ryder sandals come Christmas morn?
five. Kodi Cuff in Navy Blue - $120
There's something about that Kodi lock. It's fantastic on the Lola clutch and the Kodi bags and belts, and it's even better on the Kodi cuff, a big, brash, brushed gold hunk of metal that sits atop a lovely bit of leather, part classic sophistication, part ghetto-fabulous. Next season we're going to do this much-loved style in some new colours, including navy blue. To get on the list for one of these now email firstname.lastname@example.org
We shot all of these on location at Ampersand Cafe Bookstore on Oxford Street in Paddington. The pale green bookshelves and lilac walls were the natural backdrop for all these greens and blues. Now all we can think about are white Christmases, with fireplaces, home-made Chai tea and our Pistachio Lola clutch, chilling out on a wicker stool.
