Elys – Your one stop Christmas shop!

First of all, OMG where have I been? It’s been like over a month since I’ve posted a blog – NO, just no! I promise it won’t happen again! Anyway, I’ve been busy sorting out the new house (which we’re still yet to move into), travelling back and fourth from Devon to London for rehearsals for the Sally Allen fashion show (another blog coming soon me thinks), excuses, excuses hey. But I’m back and ready to write, pen in hand, or the 21st century alternative of fingers on keys, so I thought I’d tell you all about my evening at Elys.

So Elys is a department store in Wimbledon, I love it not only because it has everything you need under one roof but because it was the first place I worked when I moved to London 7 years ago (here’s a picture from one of the Christmas parties, just to prove it!)


I mean it was pretty awesome when I was there back in the day but it’s gone from strength to strength over the years, especially now with the brand new White Company concession upstairs. So in November every year they have a spectacular 20% off nearly everything day complete with evening fashion show, the perfect opportunity to start the Christmas shopping. For the last 3 years I’ve bought both my Christmas day dress and New Year dress from here. So without further ado, here are my top picks from the fashion show – and guys, there’s a little something for you in there too!

If that wasn’t enough, here’s a link to my snapchat video from the evening. (you can follow me on snapchat lexie crispin or on instagram
