Christmas Coggles

It’s sale season and my favourite has already begun. In celebration I’ve drawn a Coggles Christmas tree with some of their lovely sale items. I know, I know, I’m a brilliant drawer.

1. Charlotte Taylor dress.
2. Spotty Opening Ceremony boots.
3. Got to love a pair of boots with the same name as you. Grenson Emma boots.
4. Marc Jacobs jumper.
5. Paul Smith hat.
6. APC shirt.
7. Print silk dress from my favourite Folk. A dreamy dress from a great brand.

I love this story:
Victoria Bage started Coggles in 1974. The story goes that she caught her husband having an affair with his secretary. She promptly divorced him and named the store after the secretary ‘Sarah Coggles’ to remind him of the mistake he had made.

Happy Christmas

I made my own Christmas cards this year. There’s no snow, or glitter, or reindeers wearing clothes. There’s no ‘Season’s Greetings’ or kings and their crowns. No stars shining down on presents, or trees with sparkly bows.

Be excellent to each other.

I can’t go back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.

If you’re still looking for xmas presents, to give or receive, you could do worse than these.

One they made earlier

It was Pexmas. Andy was hungover. I was yet to be hungover. We stumbled along to see what we could find.

We found friendly dogs and cardboard cats, Christmas trees, mulled booze and burgers, t-shirts and bags, and secondhand threads.

The best stumble, for me, was One We Made Earlier. Look! It’s jewellery! Geometric shapes! Handmade!

They’re just up and running and should hopefully have an online shop in the New Year. If you’d like to contact them about a purchase you can reach them at onewemadeearlierAThotmailDOTcom.
