Partywear Picks

29 October, 2012

1. // 2. // 3. // 4.

The festive party season is fast approaching, so I've had my eye upon many a dresses for the obvious endless parties I hope to be invited to (or not!). If that should fail, at least I'll have a bunch of pretty dresses to swan around the house in pretending I have somewhere to go! Warehouse in particular have got many beautiful dresses that have taken my fancy. I've selected four of my favourites in the wishlist above.

1. I don't think it's possible to ever go wrong with a Peter Pan collar! Even more so when they're embellished, like the one on this adorable little, navy blue, skater dress. Usually skater shaped dresses are a little more casual for day-to day wear, but the sheer chiffon fabric and the heavily embellished neckline dress up the traditional skater shape. I also adore how the back of this dress is completely sheer, which makes it that little bit extra special!

2. You may have picked up from the title of my blog that I have a thing for feathers, I love the delicacy and beauty of them. In fact, I love them so much I even have one tattooed onto me. When I'm wearing them I feel like I could in fact be as Florence Welch in all her feathered outfit glory. This dress looks spectacular and the feathers contrast perfectly with the leather.

3. This purple-red lace bodice number is such a gorgeous colour that is perfect for A/W. The lace, Victorian-inspired, panelled dress would be a more than suitable edition to anyone's party season wardrobe. I can even see it being styled down with some buckled, black ankle boots, a chunky knit cardigan and a messy top knot for a day time look.

4. My fourth and final choice is actually a playsuit rather than a dress. Wearing a playsuit to a formal party can be questionable, but this playsuit may be THE exception. It is perfectly tailored and has a gorgeous studded collar, which everyone seems to absolutely love right now, including me. Also, the studs give the tailored shape a bit of an edgier feel.

  3. Dress number 2 is BEAUTIFUL. I also have a bit of a thing for feathers, and paired with the leather is perfect for me. I'm anything but a girly girl and need something to harden up and otherwise-so-feminine look. I wish I had a spare £160 lying around...
