It's that time of year again, part 1

I like to plan ahead, so I am already trying to figure out what to get people for the holidays. I think planning ahead saves you both money and time in the long run and it also makes it easier to get presents that people will actually like, instead of just ending up with something you bought last minute.

The challenging part for me is that a lot of my friends are typical fashionistas who apprechiate the finer things in life, so of course I love to get them something that will fit that description. But the finer things in life aren't exactly cheap (to say the least), so you have to plan every purchase in order to actually stick to your budget for the holidays.

The Outnet makes that a bit easier though. I'm considering getting a Kylie graphic T-shirt by K Karl Lagerfeld (for only £22.61), a Kenneth Jay Lane Dome cocktail ring (just £16.60!), a K Karl Lagerfeld scarf for 26 pounds and/or a See by Chloé Neckerchief print T-shirt (Now £33.19!). These are all great deals for a present for a label conscious friend in my opinion.

I highly recommend considering online stores for holiday gifts, not only can you save a lot of money by doing this, it also enables you to buy things you wouldn't normally be able to get your friends.


  1. I love that scarf!
    None of my friends are in to fashion, so I have no excuse to buy such things right now, dammit.

  2. Omigosh Christmas is really everywhere now...I'm buying for a friend whose not interested in fashion. I have my work cut out for me!
