Right, so before any of you Christmas-haters get on me like an angry rat on a soggy biscuit, I know it’s only the middle of November. In theory, I know it’s far too early to be whacking out the Mariah and thinking about mince pies. But at the same time, my work Christmas party is 3 weeks away, advent calendar season is just round the corner and DAMN IT, I really just like Christmas dresses.
So while this wishlist might be a little premature, hopefully you will all join with me in lusting over sequins, velvet, feathers and fur. There are SO many amazing Christmas party dresses and party bits (ooo-er) around, that I am seriously considering buying it all and then declaring myself bankrupt (after mysteriously hiding the clothes and creating a treasure map for Claire). I have already bought one dress, so clearly I have a problem. Don’t make me buy two, world.
So, without further ado, here are some of my favourites.
I wish I had more occasions to go to. I really need that blue mermaid dress in my life, it’s possibly the greatest thing that I have ever laid my eyeballs on. I will die happy, knowing that I have seen a dress this beautiful. I’m also keen for the sheer lacey midi dress, which is super sassy.
What’s on your Christmas partywear wishlist this year? I think I have finally outgrown the Christmas jumper, and all I want to do is wear things that are sparkly, feathery, sequiny and preferable in any form of Christmas colour. WHO’S WITH ME?
HEY GUYS. As you may know if you read our recent Missguided wishlist post, I’ve had my beady eyes on this two-piece for a couple of weeks now. I had a christening to go to over the weekend and so finally saw my chance to buy it. Yes, I technically wore a crop top to church. Sorry baby Jesus. I have to say though that I’m COMPLETELY in love with this co-ord. It’s made from quite thick polyester so feels much more formal and fitted than other crops-and-trouser combos, and I think the print is really flattering (despite my hips looking approx 3 metres wide).
I was a bit unsure how the trousers would fit as normally my stumpy legs require petite lengths, but Missguided trousers are actually a really good length for me. I’m looking forward to wearing these for my new job with a cami or jumper, and I should get plenty of wear from the top too seeing as it’s not too cropped.
I teamed the co-ord with my nude Primark heels (£13, say whut) and bright envelope clutch from ASOS. I kept jewellery simple with a couple of silver rings, and had my new Barry M shade ‘Coconut’ on my nails.
