The last few presents are being wrapped, the mulled wine is on the stove, and the turkey is being stuffed. Christmas Day is just a few hours away and Santa is about to start the worst shift of the year.
Only 1 day left to shop! How about staying away from the hellish Oxford Circus, and go to Portobello to pick up something a little bit different.
Amongst many boutiques, you will also stumble across our brand new Portobello shop, which has had a great write up by Notting Chic at http://www.nottingchic.com/featured where she writes all about Religion and our love for gothic antiques, not to mention the great array of clothes perfect for Christmas and New Year!
As the big day draws closer with just 4 sleeps to go, the Christmas parties and nights out are amping up.
Our favourite end-of-the-night-dance-till-the-lights-come-on song is Wizzard's 'Wish it Could be Christmas Every day'; not only is it a classic festive tune but it's also a sentiment that we're on board with. Wear the Heir dress or the Dove tee and party till Santa comes round.
Fancy yourself some new clothes for Christmas, or maybe you're stuck for those last few Christmas presents?

Up-and-coming musician and fashion darling Jade Williams (AKA Sunday Girl) discusses her favourite fashion trends of AW11 on msn.com. In the video she talks about a pair of Religion tuxedo style 'Immense Trousers' as part of the Androgynous trend, and our sparkly 'Gracious Cardigan' which she thinks everyone should own.
The December Issue of Company Magazine featured two Religion items- worn in very different ways, showing the versatility of our collection.
First is the 'Urge Dress' a layered, asymmetric leather dress. Wear dressed up with killer heels and some fur, or for a more relaxed feel, wear with flats and a denim jacket. Either way it is a statement piece, and falls in line with the current trend for al things 'fetish'.
Secondly is the 'Immense Jacket', part of our Black Label collection. Shown here Teddy Boy style, it can be teamed up with a bowler hat and creepers. Alternatively it can be worn over a dress to give a girly outfit a slightly androgynous feel.
Religion Denim is back, and brings you two styles in three washes each. Choose from the super skinny Judas jean in a classic black, a washed black or for something right on trend; the dip dyed jean. For a straighter cut, opt for the Vixen; available in washed black, distressed blue or a raw indigo denim.
With such a choice and such a staple item for your winter wardrobe, you'l find it hard to buy just one pair!
Born out of AW main, the transitional collection is full of stripped back pieces, with thought provoking images, a simple and nature inspired colour palette with emotion heavy names.
For women, a trip to Kew Gardens for the designers inspired animal prints of tigers and zebras and autumnal leaves combined with moss greens and dirty cream. Spider webs mixed with crows and paint splatters add to the dark and slightly morbid feel. Tones of witchcraft are seen through the sheer fabrics, asymmetrical and draping shapes, giving a sillhouette that is undefined and ethereal.
Textures and shapes are once again a predominant feature in the collection, with sequins, rouching, foil details and knitwear speckled with silver. Colours are natural; pumice stone pinks, washed out blacks and winter whites. With names like Crazy, Desperate, Pleasure and Tears, it is not for girls who want to blend in.
For the men, it is less angelic and more of a nod towards the archaeic. Images of drunken debauchery and provocative poses of women adorn the t-shirts. Sexual deviance and anarchistic opinions are ever-present with names like Chain Gang, Immortal, Anarchy and Fuck Love.
Colours are stripped back; echoes of stones, pebbles, muddy waters and rust are all washed out and distressed to look worn and imperfect. Materials are inverted, and brushed to give an interest with texture, layering and drapery giving some dimension to the items.
In Cosmopolitan's December Issue, they have featured our Fire Dress- perfect for the festive season. Start checking our stores for this dress, along with many others that will be ideal to wear to all those parties...and eating all those mince pies!
