Wednesday Wants

Ooooh I am excited!  All the beautiful party dresses are online and enticing me with their siren call.  I am swooning all over the place.  I don't really have the occasion for many party dresses but that doesn't mean I shouldn't indulge, right?!  Perfectly acceptable office wear.  I promise I haven't chosen them all with my favourite shoes in mind.  Okay maybe they have influenced my choices a little bit but they are all crackers in their own right!

How sassy does she look wearing this beauty?!  Look at the drape of that skirt, I am in love.  Also really love the shoes she is wearing, I would never be able to walk in them but oh my they are pretty!

 Dress: asos

Oh the fabric!   I am not a lover of all things floral but this is pretty abstract it barely qualifies.  It is so, so lovely.  One thing asos do really well is party dresses, I think the price for the quality is spot on and I have never been disappointed by one I have seen in real life.  I cannot get this one out of my head.

 Dress: asos

I couldn't but together a party dress wishlist without including a bit of sparkle now could I?! I love how simple but dressy this LDB is.

Have you bought your party dress yet?

Christmas Party Dress Planning

So Halloween and Bonfire Night are now out of the way so that means we can legitimately drop the C-word doesn't it?!  CHRISTMAS!  It's now just around the corner and things are about to get busy.  This is our last free weekend until the big day, eeeekk!  With that in mind I have already started planning a few outfits ready for the party season.  My favourite so far has to be this Christmas bauble dress.  We are going to a wedding in December and the evening before brings a Christmas jumper party, only I have been instructed that I need to make a fitting dress instead.  Christmas jumpers are so 2013 anyway, hehe.

I pulled together this outfit before actually ordering the fabric, I was certain that I wanted to make the most of the pink in the design so teamed with pink nails and my brightest pink lippy I think it is going to be perfect.  I am so happy with how the dress has turned out.  I love that it is so Christmas without being too in your face.  I cannot wait to wear it.  The outfit is obviously all based around these amazing Orla Kiely for Clarks shoes.  They will definitely make the best party shoes don't you think?!  Incredibly cute and super comfy, perfect for dancing the night away.  The whole AW14 Collection has been spot on, I cannot wait to see what the future brings with this collaboration - I already know SS15 is awesome too. 


 Bag: asos


I have quite a few Christmas dresses planned this year, not quite one for each day of the December count down but there is still time for me to find more fabrics I *need*.  Might make it to the 12 days of Christmas instead!  Are you going to be making yourself a little Christmas dress or skirt this year or are you going to go for a jumper instead?  If you fancy a Christmas dress but not the actual making of it have a look at Silly Old Sea Dog's new Christmas range - it's fabulous!

Wednesday Wants

Just a quick little wishlist from me today, haven't had much time recently but didn't want to go another week disappointing my Mum by not putting up a wishlist!  Whilst I have always kept an eye on Little Mistress for party dresses I was really surprised the other day that they have got this good! When did that happen?!  No longer too short and a bit too much they are now the things of dreams.  I absolutely adore metallics so the first and last ones score major points with me along with looking really fancy and perfect for the upcoming party season.  I really love the stripes.  I love that the navy one is pretty dressy whilst still being simple.  I especially love the pattern placement of the last one, it's spot on.  Good work Little Mistress!
