Casual Christmas Party

I Am Wearing : 

Gold Metallic Cardigan - c/o OASAP
Black V-Neck T-Shirt - Primark
Ripped Knee Jeans - c/o Boohoo
Heels - Zara

  It's officially party season and that means - its time to get dressed up, throw your heels up and enjoy yourself!

It also means that you have to plan lots of party appropriate outfits and some times at the last min - you know, when your friend rings you up to be her "work party date" because her boyfriend has man-flu etc!

My TOP TIP for quick party glamour and my go-to, fall back , easy option, never fails outfit is - 

skinny jeans + basic tee + glam jacket / blazer or cardigan in this case + cute heels or sparkly flats + coordinated or clashing clutch + Glam lips (if the colour can match your shoes and bag then even more amaze!) = party ready in 20 mins (ish)

Go forth and party my little dance-floor Queens (and Kings)

Merry Christmas

Vintage Christmas

 photo checkedfullskirt_zps72f5a76e.jpg  photo pinkboyfriendcoatstreetstyle_zps811c6134.jpg  photo vintagebeyondretrochristmasjumper_zps1a35b774.jpg

I Am Wearing : 

Bowler Hat - Primark
Vintage Christmas Sweater - Beyond Retro 
Check Swing Skirt - Asos
Pink Boyfriend Coat - New Look
Croc Boots - BHS

So this year the Christmas jumper seems to have TAKEN OFF! With heaps of novelty Christmas jumper all over the high street I decided that for this years #ChristmasJumperDay I would go with something a little different!

As you already know I am a massive fan of all things vintage - affordable and good for the environment - whats not to love.  So when I came across this little cutie in Beyond Retro (the Brick Lane store is my fav) I instantly new it would make a great alternative festive jumper!

Christmas jumper are the MOST fun and I love wearing them - just remember that they don't all have to be covered in Santa's and snowmen!

Merry Christmas Folks
(I think its safe to start saying this right?)

So this is my 5th and final look for my Asos Fashion Finder, style a sequinned t-shirt 5 ways challenge, and this is my favourite outfit.

Sequins on sequins with fur, studs AND glitter - it just doesn't get any more Christmas party girl glam than this!

Don't be afraid to layer your sequins this Christmas as long as the colours fit together there is no better time of year to pile on the sparkle! 

Go forth in glitter!

Denim Shirt - Primark
BoyFriend Jeans - NewLook
Glitter Heels - c/o Deichmanns

This is look 3 from my Asos Fashion Finder style a sequinned t-shirt 5 ways challenge.

I opted for a layered look - since it has turned super cold in the UK I was happy with this decision!!

Working sequins into your day look is a festive season must! In fact I have been happily working sequins into my day wear all year long and it has been well received by you guys and the people I meet. For some reason sequins seem to make people happy! 

A little sparkle on a dull day goes a long way.

(you can totally use that quote - I think I might make it my new mantra! LOL)

Here's to the freakin weekend friends!
