Amidst the abundance of choices this party season, sometimes all you want is a pair of uncomplicated boots. A girl needs a pair of black ankle boots that simply tick off all the trends boxes. Thankfully I’ve found these new Carvela LBB’s (Little Black Boots) with gold cuffs that are fuss-free and pretty easy-going when it comes to working with your outfits. Worn to work, to brunch, the weekends and for the evening (trust me, boots and dresses are totally a match-up worth trying!) Then paired with this sleek red snakeskin mini bag from Kurt Geiger London, I’m literally ready for the run up to Christmas *Scarlett

Hearing about the incredible charity Smart Works, it reminds you how crucial clothes and accessories are to make you look and importantly feel ready for a job interview. I caught up with Wardrobe Mistress, Pandora Sykes from Sunday Times Style on the day they announced last month’s BIG Fashion Sale made a whopping £34,047.25 for Smart Works.
Scarlett: How important is style to help you succeed?
Pandora: I don’t think that wearing the right dress or the right jacket will necessarily guarantee your success; but feeling comfortable in what you are wearing – and nailing those hero pieces that you can rely on time and time again – is always a winner.
Scarlett: Kurt Geiger are held a raffle to win a shoe-drobe of signature stilettos for The Sunday Times Style Big Fashion Sale. What is your favourite Kurt Geiger London stiletto?
Pandora: Britton, leopard – obviously!
Scarlett: What is your Everything but the Dress for work?
Pandora: I am really into a lower heel – chic and can wear all day – like the Colette Heel. Bag, the double zip red cross body bag as I love red snakeskin.
Scarlett: Best career advice you’ve been given?
Pandora: Keep plugging away, probably!
Scarlett: What does a girl need in her handbag to get ahead?
Pandora: A diary. MANDATORY.

Aside from the seasonal glitter, leopard leads the pack when it comes to statement accessories plunging me into the party season. The old saying “a leopard never changes its spots” springs to mind, but nor would we want it to! Unlike so many trends, leopard print manages to maintain its allure for adding fun, sophistication and a touch of naughty to my little black boots. *Scarlett

You may have noticed that Kurt Geiger’s store windows have been a little underdressed this week?
On Monday 1st December Kurt Geiger and Hope and Homes for Children unveiled #NoChristmasWindow. Traditionally a time for large scale Christmas displays, Kurt Geiger have donated its Christmas window funds to Hope and Homes for Children to help give the gift of a family this Christmas. There are over 8 million children confined to orphanages around the world and Hope and Homes for Children is a charity working to ensure that one day all children can grown up with the love and protection of a family. The single scarlet bauble represents love for every single child and it just goes to show that sometimes powerful things come in simple packages.
Please join and support this special cause by visiting www.hopeandhomesforchildren.co.uk or text NUMB60 to 70070 to donate £5 and spread the word for children this Christmas. All donations made by the 12th December will be doubled by the UK government. Thank you! *Scarlett

Glitter is back and this season’s party colour is gold. Paired with black suede, the shining stars on these KG Kurt Geiger platform sandals are impeccably Christmassy… A perfect finishing touch, to a festive fashion fairy tale. *Scarlett

It’s a rare occasion that you’re asked to RSVP to a party with your passport number! But that’s what I had to do for the Kurt Geiger Spring Summer 15 preview last week as creative director Rebecca Farrar-Hockley and the Kurt Geiger team took us to the tropics. The Electric Cinema in London’s Notting Hill was tropically transformed into Hawaii with hula dancers and a steal band. There was even a strong man with a customised floral lace mesh surfboard. The platform is back, signature ‘Bond’ takes on tribal prints and glitter toes, flats are absolutely more than a one season wonder with new flatforms. I’ve also fallen for the mini yellow saffiano London Tote and found a beautiful tanned tote to be my new travelling companion. The collection launches from January. I’m hoping they launch that lace Kurtboard! *Scarlett

When I first laid eyes on glitter covered Miss KG ‘Alba’ I knew they had to be mine. Sexy ankle strap, dance all night heels finished off in multi-coloured glitter. I’m a firm believer that you can’t always reserve your shining moments until after the daylight goes down. Paired with boyfriend jeans and a Kurt Geiger London cross body saffiano bag, these heels prove sometimes all that glitters is gold in your shoedrobe. *Scarlett
