So what couldnt the remaining ELLE online team members resist picking up this week?
I went to Topshop under the pretence of searching for a Secret Santa gift, but actually I was after this gorgeous pleated maxi skirt
. It looks great with chunky knits
and my Gap biker boots now, but I know it will work just as well with a racer-back vest and sandals this summer. I feel no guilt its an investment buy. Amy Lawrenson, beauty writer
I have become obsessed with my skin this Christmas, thanks to the harsh, snowy weather. So Ive treated myself to Elizabeth Arden's Eight Hour Cream and some Bobbi Brown foundation naughty! Kat Webster, picture editor
'I couldn't resist picking up a new going-out dress and found one at Topshop that reminded me of the longer-back dresses from Stella.' Holly Barder, Fashion Intern
I havent purchased it yet, but I definitely have my eye on a bottle of Duro by Nasomatto Parfums. Sunil Makan, picture intern
Two vintage Flair magazines and a NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Damned, which I thought looked divine on a friend at a dinner party last night. Who has time to shop for anyone else? Emily Cronin, freelance fashion news writer
