My Christmas LBD.

Monday, 17 December 2012
Apologies for the average to poor photograph on my part, we were running late to leave so I threw it on self timer and just grabbed the quickest shot ever on the way out.
The trend for this Christmas in all the highstreet stores seems to have been a mixture of sequins - and plenty of them, and velvet. I'm definitely not a sequins type of girl, I find all the jingly-jangly a bit irritating so I opted for a velvet dress for the Christmas season. You can never go wrong with a LBD, and this one can be worn for all sorts of occasions. 
I bought in in a little boutique in the town where I live, for £30 which seemed reasonable seeing as I've already gotten a few wears out of it. The store is based in Stirling and is called BettiLovesIt. 

I teamed it with red lipstick (obviously, Christmas is the best excuse for a red lip!) The lipstick is actually one by Natural Collection, in the Moisture Shine range called Cherry Red. It's only £1.99 and one of my all time favourite lipsticks. It goes on smoothly, stays on for a relative amount of time considering the price and is the perfect red. Could not be happier with that find!
A red handbag from last year's River Island range to match the lip, and a thrifted yellow blazer. (See my old post on yellow blazers from the summer.) 

I actually also wore the dress to my works Christmas night out, as you can see above and below.I thought it was a really flattering shape. I wore coral shoes from Miss KG from the Kurt Geiger Debenhams range (I don't think they sell them anymore), to have a bit of colour pop. I think they really flattered the outfit. My flatmate on the far left is wearing a dress of mine also which is from Missguided, her shoes are from a local boutique called Frank. My friend in the middle is wearing a sequinned dress from Republic, which should still be stocked.

How would you accessorize this dress, and what's been your Christmas Party Dress for 2012?  Let me know :)

    I love the shoes too, my favourites! (Even though I can barely walk in them, Hepburn would be ashamed by the lack of womanly qualities I seem to possess.)

  3. Everybody looks great. Your friend's gold sequin dress... I want!

  4. Thankyou! Yes I love it too, there's a similar one on MissGuided which I'm tempted to treat myself to! x
