Festive Sparkles

I really wanted to share my new Mod Dolly dress today but unfortunately the weather has other ideas!  We somehow managed to sleep through it all - during the night the wind blew down our back fence and flipped our garden table breaking a few pots in the process :(  It has died down a bit now but is still too windy to take photos.  ANNOYING!!  So in true Blue Peter style here is one I made earlier.  I managed to find this dress in Leeds Topshop, sitting all alone discarded on a rail of jumpers.  I love a bit of sparkles but wasn't keen on how low cut the dress was so decided that I could fix this with a fur stole.  I wore this when I went to see Shed Seven and got some lovely comments on instagram, lots of love for the dress!   It's so sparkly, a couple of friends were also at the gig and both managed to spot me dancing away when the lights came up and I turned into a human disco ball.

I've been feeling a bit 'meh' about the high street recently but there are still gems out there if you look hard enough.  This and my other recent purchase from Topshop have been two of my favourite going out dresses this year.  I am going to wear my pink striped one out for a meal with friends tonight.  Might be a tad overdressed but hey I just wanna wear it!

Dress: Topshop
Stole: Primark
Shoes: Clarks
Brooch: Tatty Devine

Hope you've had a lovely Christmas, we had such a good day.  Christmas dinner was thankfully a huge success and it seems Gray and I are the roast dinner dream team!  Massive yorkies and perfectly carved meat... mmm!  Will defo have to cook more roast dinners in 2014.  I was well and truly spoilt, a holiday with my family and a few little gifts from my parents, a blender, perfume and other cool gifts from my family, PJs, a Jumper and the most amazing ring from Gray along with some lovely treats from my blogger besties.  Perfect.  Mr Jangles also treated me to a voucher for 3 back massages and a three course dinner before he returned to the North Pole.  So blessed to have such wonderful people in my life.  I just hope they loved their pressies just as much! 

We are spending New Year at home this year, I really do hate going out for New Years - always such an anticlimax.  We have family and friends coming over for some food and hopefully some board game action and I am going to put on my party dress before changing into my PJs as soon as the clock strikes midnight!  What do you have planned?  Do you like to paint the town red or prefer to party at home?



  1. That's such a good fine - the stole goes so well with it too! I like a wee houseparty, it's too crowded and expensive going out and I always regret it the next day!

  2. Merry Christmas Sarah! I'm not much of a new year girl either, it's all about Crimble :) You look lovely, the perfect excuse for glitter! <3 Claire @ Jazzpad

  3. I love this dress. I'm not a fan of new year either, especially with a rather large baby bump. We've had house parties the past two years but really not sure what we are doing this year. X

  4. Love the dress paired with that stole. Happy Christmas hun - I hope you got everything you wished for :)

  5. This is such a gorgeous dress, the colour looks great with your hair! Board games and food is what I have planned for NYE this year!
