Missguided bardot dress Missguided Party Outfit
(Outfit & Make up- All available at Missguided)

Ok, so contrary to my last post- there are, on occasion, dresses you just fall for. Christmas themed party dresses you just love- and more so, ones that make you feel really special. If you've read my blog for any period of time you'll know I'm not one to often turn to body con (when one enjoys as much pasta as I, it's probably for the best) and smocks are usually my first port of call. But- after browsing the Missguided site, and seeing this velvet Bardot inspired frock- I knew it was meant to be this festive season.
Missguided Make up Beehive Hairstyle
But, little did I realise that wasn't all this online shopping heaven had to offer in terms of getting ready. With a new section dedicated for perfect make up pallets, falsies that even the biggest lash novice like me can master (Katy Perry ones are my favourite), hair products and even some gorgeous nails, picking out a party look quickly became a little more fun and exciting (and I also promise a beehive tutorial will come in the new year)!
Missguided shoes
On top of that, I also wrapped up my more going 'out out' party look with what can only be described as my Harry Styles coat (if only) and some perfect courts; in order to keep things a little sophisticated and erm, One Direction like around here. Plus, the coat is super warm, so with some clear tights (because I'm not quite brave enough) I'm pretty sure I've got this dressy thing sussed! Thanks Missguided!

  7. Love that dress! And I particularly like how you've toughened it up a little with a more masculine coat - it gives the whole look a really great balance.

  15. 'Harry Styles coat' made me giggle, but how absolutely true. A friend of mine actually won One Direction concert tickets in October so I ended up going to see them and had to laugh when the outfit I chose to wear was exactly like the one Harry was wearing on all the gigantic pictures of them around the venue. I'd love to share his wardrobe... Anyway! This outfit is gorgeous, I especially love those shoes.

  23. I have a VERY similar coat from Primark, which I LOVE! Where is yours from? I call mine a Harry Styles coat too! Or a Sherlock coat! And I love that you think black and navy is good too, I'm always being told I can't wear them together! xx
