Fashion: All I want for Christmas is..

By Rosie Dawson-Hewes


Dear Santa,

I know I haven't written in years, but I've been really good this year. I've eaten all my veges, done my chores and even used my manners (well, most of the time). I've been nice to my husband, tried lots of new challenges and worked hard. So I'm pretty sure you'll have me on the "nice" list.

I know there are people out there who need things much more than I, Santa. But, if you want to leave something under the tree for me on Christmas morning, here's a list of things that will help your elves narrow it down.

I like things that sparkle and things that shine. I like things that smell nice and taste good, too. I like super-high shoes and oversized clutches, dresses and shirts and even shirt-dresses. I like high quality fabrics, beautiful tailoring and attention to detail. And I'm a sucker for anything designed and made right here in New Zealand.

Yours in anticipation,

Rosie.
