Make a wish

Apologies for the lack of blogging. I've just moved house AGAIN, and have been without the Internet for 10 days. On the upside I found my camera charger in the move so I am able to upload photos finally!

With payday approaching, I have been doing some major window shopping for my work Christmas party outfit, I feel its only right to share my options with you...



 Dress £90

If you ask me Christmas is all about the glitter and glam. There are some amazing pieces in the shops at the moment, I defiantly need a sequin fix this winter!




I'm not a huge fan of River Island but they have really upped their game recently. I am in LOVE with the first dress..the website states it to be a cami but as I'm a petite 5"2 it would be a dress on me! I am so into embellishment and beading, I have a gorgeous skirt from Topshop maybe 3 years ago that is covered in sequins. It is so heavy and well made I will never throw it out.


I purchased these beauties yesterday. I have very little money left before pay day, but I HAD to buy them. They will go with so many outfits and are perfect for Winter. Plus they were reduced by 50% to £14.99! I will defiantly be getting my moneys worth! These reminded me a lot of some I saw in Topshop earlier this year, but for a fraction of the price!



Again Miss Selfridge isn't usually my go-to shop, but they also have some really great things in this season. I love the "Designed By" collection they have just launched, which the first item is from! I have only seen this top on their website so I can't wait to try it on in real-life! I love these tights too. Ever since I was flicking through  magazine and saw a model wearing tights like these with an over-sized tunic, I have wanted a pair, I will defiantly be purchasing these..

So you can see my obsession with over embellishment, I just love the time and care taken to make these items. And you know once you have them in your wardrobe they will never not be in your life!

What is your Winter staple going to be?
