Christmas 2014 Partywear Wishlist

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.

Mermaid Bodycon Dress | Silver Wrap Dress | Cream Feather Bustier Dress 

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?

Outfit of the Day: Missguided Trouser Co-Ord

OOTD 29th Sep Collage 1Top and Trousers: both Missguided | Shoe: Primark | Clutch Bag: ASOS (old)

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).

OOTD 29th Sep Collage 2I 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.

OOTD 29th Sep Collage 3I 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.
