New Year’s Eve night out

28 Dec

There’s only one reason to start weaning yourself off the Christmas binge:New Year’s Eve. For most of London, this is the huge finale of the party season, the last hurrah before January detox and exercise begins. So of course, you need to spend most of New Year’s Eve pampering and prepping for the night’s festivities as well as a gorgeous little dress to shimmy into. Here are my top four dresses, perfect for whatever you might have planned, whether it’s partying the night away, sinking shots at the bar or a nice, civilised dinner.

Topshop Gala bow detail peep toe shoe boots – £60

Christmas Party dresses

24 Dec

Well, it’s Christmas Eve and I’m so relieved. I know the big day is yet to come, but it means party season is over! Deciding where to go and what to wear for an entire month of partying is tiring! There were three trends which appealed to me when finding dresses: Short, one shouldered and sequins! Basically, anything which looks like it was influenced by Christophe Decarnin. One day, I will own some Balmain…

For my work Christmas party, I had to tone it down just a tad. I feel that it’s a bit inappropriate to be overly sexy at work dos, many people disagree but I think it’s just going to attract trouble and gossip. The sequin dress by Rare was perfect. It had matt sequins so it wasn’t overly glitzy and in your face but it has huge shoulder pads! Very fitting for someone who won the Fashion Icon of 2009 award during the end of year awards…I’m an icon darlings!

Lots of love,
