Even though I did the equivalent of Supermarket Sweep in grabbing all of my Christmas presents this year (one shop, lots of manic trolley stuffing - job done!), I still feel stressed as ever. One of my stresses (which thank Jeez, is now over) was finding my Chirstmas party outfit.

I'm not actually a big one for glitz - although you might think otherwise looking at the dress and shoes here! So, although oddly for me I fell in love with these beaded heels on the spot, I was really unsure about the dress. It was a bit of a panic purchase!

Props to Topshop. The dress is incredible quality. Non scratchy - HOORAY FOR FELTY SEQUINS! Comfortable (it's fully lined). Simple. Easy to pair with anything. I'm not the biggest fan of exposed zips, but I let this one slide..!

(FYI - I'm actually selling the dress on Depop now as I don't need it anymore! Username RobynMayday)

Would love to know what you guys wore / are wearing to your Christmas parties! Glad mine is done with as now I can focus on the best part of Christmas - pigging out (oink).

You've got to love a good playsuit - I don't wear them often, but after wearing this silky number from Ark, I feel like I need more in my wardrobe! Given the gross weather, I paired it with some opaque tights, a jacket and leather knee highs. But it would be equally fab for a night out.

I actually took these photos last weekend (blogger fail). My hair is now back to being light pink for a couple of weeks. I've missed having colourful hair! Have a peek at it here on my instagram. Oh and currently lol-ing at my chubby cheeks in the first photo. I look a bit like I've just had some reaaaal good cake (although I hadn't - I wish!).
