Xmas 2011: I Want Selfridges Miniature Shoe Collection

I attend a lot of press days whether it is spring/summer or autumn/winter but my favourite has to be Christmas in July, and it doesn’t get any better than seeing what Selfridges has to offer for the festive season. For 2011, Selfridges theme is White Christmas and I have to admit I can’t wait to see the windows when they are unveiled in October, they are going to be fabulous.

As well as the fake snow, the polar bear tree ornaments, but I was completely drawn to the miniature accessory advent calendar. I am not just not talking about small shoes and handbags, I am talking about miniature designer replicas. All Selfridges concept, they have spoken to their favourite shoe and handbag designers including Charlotte Olympia, Lanvin, Vivienne Westwood, Christian Louboutin, Rupert Sanderson, Repetto, and even Havianas, to design mini versions for the most elaborate advent calendar I have ever seen.

For a cool £18,000, you will get a different miniature accessory each day in the run up to December 25, with each piece housed in its own drawer that can be unlocked through a different code, and all of that is delivered in a gorgeous one-off piece of furniture by Hendzel and Hunt. I only saw a mock-up but this is one seriously extravagant pre-Christmas gift and is strictly limited edition, now where the hell I am going to find that much money??

As well as glittery Dior, there are mini Dr Martens, tiny Havianas flip-flops, but my favourites had to be the various shades of Charlotte Olympia, you can see how different they are in size when you see them side-by-side with the full-size shoe.

Apparently you will be able to buy some of these shoes separately as well, so always wanted a pair of designer shoes, this might be ideal.

As well as miniature shoes there was a limited edition Victoria Beckham crocodile white bag, a white Alexander McQueen union jack clutch, quirky underwear from House of Holland with slogans such as Fullbush, Bald, Blonde and Redhead, a framed A Christmas Carol, and some cute Misfits toys.

Please can I have this Make Your Own Misfits book? I love these quirky beauties, they would look totally at home alongside all my other cool bits in my room.

If the shoe advent calendar is a little excessive how about this beauty one?

How amazing does this look? Each window houses a dinky size version of some of Selfridges’ popular beauty products, these include brands Kiehls, YSL, Shu Uemura, Lancome, and Armani. Better price point as well as this amazing set is £70, on sale in October.

As well as luxury gifts I always find that Selfridges offers some of the best stocking fillers, my favourite has to be these Mr Choco-Late fun chocolate moustaches, only £4.99. I also loved all their animal tree decorations.
