(Dress: C/O Topshop, Shoes: Office, Lipstick: Topshop)

I've been pretty excited to post this outfit for a while, as quite frankly this is a CRACKING dress and by far one of the best things the postie has ever dropped through my letterbox (or made me collect). It swirls, it sparkles and it has a saucy cut out back in case everything else just wasn't enough for you. I decided to team it with my favourite most clumpiest heels, a messy beehive and slick of lipstick which is a pretty fail-safe combination by my standards. Additionally, it's possibly one of the most festive pieces I own, and it is safe to say it's in the running for Christmas day frock (big deal) which makes me very excited as I've tried remarkably hard not to wear it every day to work and bed...

Anyway! How is everyone? I've had a pretty busy weekend visiting pals in Liverpool which included house parties (and falling asleep early at them), inevitable shopping, lots of nineties lingo, pancakes, X Factor and pre-sleep-nonsense-chat- which was the perfect little get-away weekend and break that I needed. Anyway, watching Ollie Locke dance like John Travolta calls, but stay tuned for a cheeky new features page (and FB button- check me out), interviews, festive recipes, a gift guide and lots of awkward posing!
