A Glasgow Girl’s Guide To The Alternative Christmas Shop: Sisterling

Cropped Jumper by Obscure Couture – £45, Romy & Michelle Nails – DIY NAILS – £10, Wee Yin Necklace by Bonnie Bling – £16, Pirate tights by TejaJamilla – £16.55

My sister is flat out my favourite person to buy for. Her tastes are a bit girly, a bit geeky and it just makes her the most fun to buy for ever. For her I thought a mixture of Scottish designers, a wee bit of nail art and an etsy favourite would actually be way too perfect for her.

Obscure Couture’s new ready to wear is a mix of candy colours and acid brights and their new “The Fear” top is perfect for my sister. She is a total wee fitness freak and teaches gym classes part time so think this would be perfect for her to pull on when doing her practice runs at home. The Wee Yin necklace from Bonnie Bling should be perfectly self-explanatory and I know it would make her giggle something awful.

My sisterling is way more talented than I and always has immaculate nails so you can bet she would love DIY Nails. I thought some decals would be super cute but these gorgeous animal print nails are still one of my favourite of her designs. I think they would make a perfect stocking filled along with these gorgeous pirate tights. The pirate tights are from a small etsy seller TejaJamilla – a small tights designer based in England. I love the illustrations throughout – treasure chests, narwhals and pirate ships. 

As always everything is pretty much readily available online. DIY Nails also do some sweet custom offers and have a range of decals for some nice cheap stocking fillers if looking for a little bit extra as a treat.
