It's Party Season

Yes it's that time of year, Christmas and New Year = PARTY TIME! The mounds of food we get offered at this time of year can sometimes make us feel a bit self conscious about what to wear for a night out.



I know I'm slim but I still have bits about me I don't like showing, I only wear certain types of dresses because I hate showing off my bony chest. So I feel at this time of year every one of us should have a dress/ outfit we feel 100% comfortable and drop dead gorgeous in! For me it's my new cobalt blue dress from Little Mistress.
I can't believe I'm saying it but I won this dress!!!! I entered their Instagram competition a couple of weeks ago and I won! I was so happy and even more so when the dress arrived. I picked this one because it was a high neck and short. Long dresses tend to drown me with me being quite short. And can we just take a minute to appreciate how gorgeous the colour is on this dress! Not only that the material was lovely and soft and I loved the beading detail around the top of the dress. It was love at first sight. I will wearing this dress for New Year's Eve this year. Anyway for now because everyone likes alternate options I though I would pair this dress with 2 different bags and shoes to see which one you all prefer.
First for those of us who have the amazing skill of walking in big heels, these great fringe heels from Missy Empire paired with a matching bag from New Look go perfectly with this dress.
Then for a slightly daintier look and those of us who want that little bit of height but can't quite manage 6 inch heels, I chose these black strappy New Look heels, with my black kind of Chanel like bag from River Island.
Which look would you go for? 
Hope you all enjoyed this post and look fabulous over this festive season! Embrace your body and feel confident in what you've got!
