Christmas party glad rags

I don't know about you but I put a lot of thought into buying a Christmas party dress. To be honest I don't actually need any excuse to buy a new dress but it makes me feel less guilty. I've put together a little wishlist of what i'd love to swish about during the festive period.

001. This is a bit of a cheat as I actually brought this asos peplum yesterday and it turned out to be quite the bargain. It was already reduced to £38.50 and I had a Yourvine voucher to use up too. I think this will be earmarked for the boys Christmas party as long as it doesn't make me look like an elephant!

002. I love the gothic feel of this Topshop dress and the midi length has my name written all over it. The sheer back helps to adds a little sexiness.

003. This Zara beauty will be mine come payday. I'm not quite confident to wear it just yet but come the end of next month when i've lost some weight i'll be rocking it with a huge statement necklace. It just looks so elegant but I don't think it'll be very forgiving!

004. The price point of this dress is slightly painful but then Topshop has never been kind on the purse. It looks so elegant and perfect for those special occasions.

005. Much to my boyfriends disgust I have an unhealthy obsession with leather. I've got a pair of trousers, two skirts and a dress so far. And counting. This is my ideal shape dress and the colour of this Asos beauty is gorgeous. Please be mine under the Christmas tree.


  1. 004 is the so like the dress Liv Tyler wore to the Django Unchained premiere last night, except better! Was just thinking about how cute it was when I saw this one! Also, I want that black lace dress like whoa. Santa, be generous!

  2. love the dress you bought, it will look fabulous on you for sure x

  3. Love the gothic one from Topshop!

  4. That topshop midi would be perfect for you!

  5. That leather dress is lovely but I would happily wear any of these!
