… Feliz Navidad, prospero ano y felizidad! WHAT a banger.
I was in Spain at the weekend for a Christmas party (casual, lol).
We flew out on the Thursday, ate at our fave restaurant (Buenisimo FYI, if you’re ever in Santa Pola), guzzled sangria and basked in the winter sun. Sometimes you just need that vitamin D boost to pop a spring back in your step before the Christmas madness really begins.
We spent our time soaking up the sleepy Spanish town. Strolls through the quiet streets, followed by fresh coffee and pastries. You know the drill. But for the party, I wanted to get my glam on.
I bloody love an excuse to get dressed up. Pop the prosecco, stick on the tunes, go all out with ya hurrr ‘n’ make up and slip into a lil summin’ summin’ that makes you feel gooood.
For most shindigs, I venture to New Look for my outfit – so I was chuffed when they wanted to work with me on this post. I scurried down to Oxford Street in my lunch hour and sifted through their Christmas party selection. So much glam, so much glitter, all the festive sass.
As it’s Christmas, I had to get involved with the glitter – so I went for the dreamiest velvet wrap dress with glittery polka dots.
It is flattering (whilst still leaving room to gobble & drink bubbles), twirls when you groove on the D floor, and also sheds a little bit of glitter on everything. This may be of inconvenience to some, but to me is best thing about it. If you can’t cover everyone that crosses your path in glitter at Christmas, when can ya ey?
I will fo’sho wear the dress again, maybe with over the knee boots ‘ere in England as it is SO bloomin’ chilly! What do ya tink?
Are you off to any Christmas parties over the next couple of weeks? OR is your kinda Christmas party on the sofa with mulled wine / cheese boards / Elf?
