New Years Eve Outfit Ideas

If you haven't already read my 'Christmas Wardrobe' post then go and have a peek at that to see some fantastic pieces for Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and of course Boxing day.
Now I am going to talk about New Years day and show some fantastic party dresses right from our high street.

New Year is the time for gliz and glamour and sequins are a must to impress on the dance floor. Here is my pic of three dresses destined for the celebrations...

The first dress comes from my favourite store, Warehouse. I have tried this on in store and although it is a tad short for me the fit is exceptional so if you have some killer pins then go for it! The beading on this dress is beautiful and timeless which justifies the not so bargain price of £100.00. Just think though, you could wear this over and over again.

Next is from River Island at a price of £40.00. I love this dress I think it looks so expensive and celebrity-worthy. The dress speaks for itself, but if you think it needs blinging up I think it would look great with a statement necklace. I know a black dress can be a little dull, but I think everyone can agree this is the sexiest black dress they have ever laid their eyes on.

Something a little more up my street is this beautiful design from Miss Selfridge. In the sale at a bargain price of £59.00, this intricate detailed dress will be sure to wow. Although the midi length and sleeves would be super flattering, the dress doesn't lose its sex appeal.

Once you have picked the dress, next comes the accessories. I tend to go by the rule that less is more, and really what else does a girl need but a black pair of killer heels and a simple black clutch? The shoes are by Topshop in the sale for £72.00 and the clutch is available from Accessorize for £25.00.

Quick Info:
Sequin Wrap, Warehouse £100.00
 Black dress, River Island £40.00
Sequin Lace Midi, Miss Selfridge £59.00
Strappy Heels, Topshop £79.00
Clutch, Accessorize £25.00

Christmas Wardrobe

For me, what I am going to wear around the festive season is everything. I start to think about what I am going to wear for Christmas day as soon as the collections hit the shop, it is a little obsession. Looking glamorous is key over Christmas, its a time where you can get dressed up and impress whatever your doing.
Here are my top pics to wear this Christmas that you can get your hands on right now:
For Christmas day I have actually brought this exact red dress from Oasis. Oasis have so many great items in right now and have really impressed me with its latest collection, and this dress does not disappoint. It looks fabulous with opaque black tights and black shoes and will be sure to impress over the dinner table.
Even though I am more likely to dress up on Christmas day, I like to make an effort on Christmas Eve and Boxing Day. Of course it depends what your plans are, but for me I will be wearing my leather skirt from Reiss with a Christmas jumper on the eve and some skinny jeans with a similar tunic on Boxing day. Tunics are a great way to hide that over indulgence the day after!
Of course, Christmas wouldn't be Christmas if you didn't have a killer pair of heels. I have these Kurt Geiger's in plain black but have been eying up these studded ones for a week or two and fair to say I will purchase them before the festivities begin!
Clothes (available in store and online):
Red lace dress, Oasis £48.00
