The Fashion Audit: Shelterbox bracelets, nose wax, Elin King at Guess by Marciano, The Killing and Steven Meisel jigsaw


We love… Simply charming

These trinkets may seem a bit of fun, but £1 from each sale goes to Shelterbox – a charity that provides frontline support to victims of natural disasters. Timely, indeed, as it is assessing the damage left by Superstorm Sandy in Cuba, Haiti and the United States. £2, topshop.com

We're not sure about… On the nose

Oh, to be a fly on the wall at the development meeting in which the concept of nose wax – with a special applicator, no less – was touted. Spare a thought for the actors who demonstrate the product online – without expletives or eye watering. nads.co.uk

We're buying… Sweet Swede

Swedish blogger Elin King brings her own brand of insouciant cool to a collection for Guess by Marciano. Largely wrought in monochrome, there is a definite air of Scandi-chic about pieces such as leather trousers and tube knits, while chevron stripe detailing provides an art-deco twist. From £49, ekformarciano.com

We can't wait for… Killing it

Sure, it's cold now, but winter officially begins when Saturday nights are spent exasperatedly screaming at Sarah Lund on the screen. We can't wait to see what the very dramatic Danish detective will be wearing when she returns for a final series later this month. The Killing, 17 November, BBC4

We're saving up for... Puzzling over

Haven't a clue what to get your extremely creative, extremely patient loved one this Christmas? Then look no further, this limited edition 1,000-piece jigsaw of a 2007 Steven Meisel print is sure to be the most original parcel under the tree. £475, showstudio.com
