Last night was my work’s Christmas party. Food, drinks, awards and a general celebration of how amazingly well we have done as a company over the past year. The theme was ‘The Zits’, a play on The Brits, so glam was exactly what we were going for. I’m never normally one to go for a super sequinned number but this year I thought, f*ck it, it’s Christmas, I wanna be sparkly!
I spotted the bag before I’d even found my dress, and the quilted pattern on the front reminded me so much of something Chanel-esque AND it was velvet – so much more Christmas, which was perfect. Because it had gold hardware, I knew my dress would have to compliment that. For my heels, I went for my favourite ASOS heels. My good friend and colleague Lauren also has this pair and we constantly go on about how amazingly comfortable and effortless they are.
I’d originally planned to have my hair up in a tight, high ponytail but changed my mind and went for a style that I was a lot more comfortable with; down with loose waves, alongside super simple eye make up and a dark red lip – perfect for the season.
Thank you so much to the amazing Hayley for taking these photos for me, we had so much fun, eee. I love my blogger friends.
What do you think? Do you have a particular trend that you love for the Christmas party season?
