Wendy Gilmour, the fashion blogger behind ThankFiFi talks top trends for winter, her fave celeb style and why she’s glad plaid is back in fashion this season…

Happy Holidays! Do you have an ‘it’ fashion item that you are planning to wear for this year?
I just got a pink coat – a huge cliché obviously, but I’m in love!

OK, let’s talk about presents. What has been the best present you have received? And the one you would rather forget about?
Without a doubt Mr K, my puppy, was the best present EVER. Think I’d rather forget about the garlic grater my mother-in-law gave me a few years ago – it was a beautifully hand-painted grater dish… but I’m allergic to garlic.

What would be your dream holiday destination? Would you prefer Santa’s village or someplace warm and sunny?
Skiing in the snow every time! I got married in Chamonix, France, four winters ago, skiing with all my friends and family – plenty of fresh air, snow, sun, mulled wine, cheese and great memories.

Dolce & Gabbana were the designers behind the famous Claridge’s Christmas tree. Who would you choose to design it and why?
Myself, obviously!

What type of Christmas tree would you be?
A real pine tree. Definitely because of the smell and I’m a sucker for the classics: plenty of gold and red, but I’d throw in a bit of crazy fun, maybe some clashing hot pink? I’d stick to baubles though and plenty of lights; no tinsel, thank you!
