3. Michael Kors Leather Cross Body Bag
Now this brand needs no introduction. Pretty much anyone who is remotely into fashion will know who and what Michael Kors is. I’m also pretty confident every female who is brave enough to splash out on an MK bag would love to claim one as her own. Their bags are made with such care, quality and detail that it is easy to tell oneself that the price is merely an investment. The claim holds true with this cross body bag, designed with enough room to make sure all your essentials are kept neat and tidy while you step out in elegance. The best thing about it? Its price. Even I’m tempted.

4. River Island Dark Brown Belted Shearling Cape
Winter shouldn’t be a time where fashion needs to be sacrificed for warmth or comfort. In fact, winter should be a time where the three come together in one perfect harmony. Designed from soft faux suede with a faux shearling lining, this jacket will give you a vintage evening look any time of the day. The deep brown pallet allows for a country feel even if you’re strolling through the busy city lights. Beautiful, isn’t it? And on sale too.

5. Byredo Parfums Rose of No Man’s Land 50ml
This perfume just had to make the list. Not only is it unisex and therefore very accessible, its backstory is simply quite stunning. A new perfume by Byredo, it is seen as an honour and tribute to the nurses of WWI. Their selfless and humanitarian nature is bottled into one sophisticated, elegant fragrance, designed to soothe the skin and keep it alive from dusk till dawn.
