I have an undeniable love for slip swing dresses at the moment and when I first saw this sequin-embellished Fashion Union number I knew it had to be mine. Choosing a colour was difficult as I loved all three options (gold, silver and black), but for some reason I've always been drawn to gold. I was tempted by the notion of owning a silver dress, but still couldn't resist the gold. I'm not quite sure why I'm always drawn to gold when it comes to clothing as I personally find a lot (but not all) gold jewellery rather tacky. However, gold sequins is another matter entirely! This dress is an almost definite option for either my work Christmas party or a NYE number. After all the loose, smock shape is ideal for hiding unwanted food babies and champagne tummies. I can even see myself getting some use out of it during festival season next summer!
How delicious are my new platform, velvet boots? I never knew one pair of shoes could make a girl so happy! For years I've always had the ideal crushed velvet, 70's boots in the back of my mind, which has led to me searching high and low in secondhand shops. Finally, my hunt for the dream pair of boots paid off as I won these on eBay for just £5! They are officially my favourite pair of shoes ever. Now the hunt for the same pair in wine red is on!
