Well, this is a slightly more adventurous post for me and a massive step outside of my comfort zone. Even though I have a massive interest in fashion, I’d much rather be putting pictures of my lipstick coated lips on my blog than my outfits, but I thought it was about time that I gained a bit of confidence and started sharing my outfits. Over the Christmas period, I have decided to share ‘What I Wore’ for certain events and evenings out. Hopefully, I’ll start to get a bit more confident in front of the camera, but until then, I’m quite happy with my slightly shaky, at home photos. I hope you enjoy the first of my ‘What I Wore’ series, in collaboration with George at Asda for the #GeorgeChristmas campaign.
Although Christmas hasn’t officially started, I’ve been invited to so many Festive events and it’s been such a fantastic opportunity to start ringing in Christmas as well as seeing some of my favourite bloggers. This evenings event called for glitz and glamour for drinking champagne with the girls and I thought that it was about time that I had the chance to wear my gorgeous sequin shift dress from Asda*. Rose gold sequins? Yes please! I’m a total rose gold addict at the moment and I seen to have picked up several pieces of clothing in this colour scheme. Still neutral enough in the colour palette for my liking, but with added sparkle to make sure it shouted ‘It’s Christmas!’
Being nearly 6ft tall, and very curvy, I like to show off my legs rather than anything else so the V neck cut of the dress is very flattering on the bust without showing any cleavage. The length of the dress is perfect for my liking and also risque enough for an evening out. Short sleeves cover up the upper arms whilst the fabric contains enough stretch to be able to move around comfortably.
I’ve decided to team my high street dress with high end shoes and I’ve paired them with my light bronze lamé Lottie sandals from Jimmy Choo. I rarely get the opportunity to wear these with the awful weather we have, so I thought as the event was a dinner and dance, they would be perfect. I also used my matching Cayla bag (not pictured). I kept jewelley simple with a discreet pair of Pandora Sparkling Star studs and Rose Gold Entwined Ring and wore my Tanya Bardsley Dreams to Reality Angel Wing Pendant.
For my make up, I used The Dolce Vita Palette from Charlotte Tilbury and created a heavy smoky eye, and kept lips simple with a pale pink matte liquid lipstick from Sephora. I felt like the belle of the ball.
I hope you enjoyed my very first ‘What I Wore’ post and I will be sharing with you my Christmas Day outfit very soon.
Thank you to Asda for providing me with my gorgeous dress for #GeorgeChristmas
