Last Minute Christmas Shopping Ideas

Ahh Christmas Shopping! I was waiting for you!

December is here, and we can feel the holiday spirit already: everyone is making Christmas shopping plans, as well as plans for New Year’s Eve, of course.

For many people it might be just a nice holiday because they can take a few days off from their job…but for me, this is the time of the year when magic happens. No, no, I’m not talking about fairies and pixie dust, but about real everyday life magic, that we ourselves create and spread.

Always remember that we are the creators of our own happiness.

To take myself, for instance, I am happy when I’m going Shopping… Christmas Shopping!  🙂


I was working as normal this week before the Holidays begin and also trying to squeeze in some last minute outfit/present shopping so I can really relax once the weekend comes. Every year I promise to be more organised but I think I just need to come to terms with the fact that I will ALWAYS be last-minute. Because I don’t have time for anything! I’m guessing I’m not the only one in this situation so I thought I would share these pictures with you to help you choose your Christmas shopping outfit

Sometimes we forget that the holidays also mean a whole month of non-stop social events, during which we will hardly have any time to think about what to wear! Do you feel that way too? Everyone wants to celebrate. New Year’s Eve parties are a subject of water cooler conversation in the office, and at home, Christmas dinner is one of the main topics. Too many events, too many outfits to figure out. It is all pretty hard to handle, but it is time to plan what to wear at each party!for a few ideas on how to survive December.

Here are a few ideas on how to survive December and Holidays.

Party dresses. During the holidays, a black dress for a special occasion is the smartest purchase to make. It’s always a good idea to buy a sexy nightgown… Even more so if you can use it as a dress to go out with! What do you think about this simple black lace dress from Guess?

Or a floral elegant silk dress?

Many of us are afraid of floral prints in the winter, actually quite wrong. Such silk dresses can get us out of this mess anytime. Floral dresses are so versatile that they can be worn, depending on the mix, on different occasions, from evening events to street-style. Floral dresses can be an inspired choice for parties if mixing them with sandals or booties, and a fur collar.

I wish you 2017 full of occasions to wear your new dress!


Midi skirts. They are very trendy, and if you are looking for an exclusive model, it is probably not so cheap… So sales are the perfect time to finally get that cool midi skirt you will want to wear all the time.

Skirts are those items with which you can provide multiple looks, depending on what you choose to mix. Keep the skirt, while changing the shoes and accessories and you are ready in just a few minutes. Whatever is your favourite, make sure you have at least two models that you can rely on this season.


 Mid-heel booties.

Day and night, you can count on them to give a special touch to all your outfits. You can find them in Guess and LiuJo stores from Afi Palace Cotroceni and Baneasa Shopping City.


Backless blouses. They are our favourite glam touch of all our party looks. They are a must-have during the day, too, by now — to be worn with midi skirts or denim jeans.

When celebrating it with family, the dress code is lovely, elegant and festive. Though might not sound as the most comfortable thing to wear, Guess changed my idea of midi skirts. I wasn’t really sure what to choose when I went to the shops a few days ago, as all the big range of skirts from low to super high confuse you easily. I ended up getting a classic length in dark, that I thought would work with everything, especially casual outfits with sneakers and boots.



Like always I’ve spent my time only focusing on looking for dresses and nearly forgot to get some casual bits for the days during Christmas.

So, I choose also some cozy sweaters and jackets to get me through the season. Below are a few I fell in love with. I especially love this grey sweater from LiuJO and this blue jacket from Guess.

For me, Sweaters are the coolest items in winter! For several seasons, the knit is trending and sweaters have even become a must-have for evening wear. If it’s a precious model, of course!

Jackets. December might seem like it is almost too late to buy a coat, but there are still 2 full months of winter left, or even more — depending on where you live, there might be even 3 or 4! A warm, snuggly coat is always a good investment, one you can re-use next year. They are more lightweight than coats, perfect for the tail end of Winter, and to transition into Spring.



I hope this has helped anyone who is at last minute Christmas Shopping as me…
