Good day my festive fellows,
As that magical time is ever approaching, I am sure many of you are already celebrating with colleagues and friends in the Christmas festivities. It can be a tricky time to wade through all the sequins and glitzy lurex to find a suitable outfit for that all important Christmas work function or boozy lunch with your girlfriends so I thought I would give you some of my fail safe tips to get through this season with your fashion heads held high.
I am fortunate enough at my work to have an annual black tie event which I look forward to with fervour each year. It is a chance to get super dressed up and unwind with my colleagues after a hard 12 months. A few years ago, I found the most perfect dress. It was a beaded 1920s style grey flapper dress with a V neck at the back. I wore it teamed with my lace peep toe shoes bought on a shopping weekend to Milan, huge Swarovski earrings, my Chanel clutch and my faux fur mink jacket. When we arrived at the venue, I felt like one of the old Hollywood starlets on the red carpet. It was a wonderful evening.
Another year, when I was based in our Cape town office, I attended their masquerade ball. It really was so much fun to be mysterious for the evening, hiding behind a mask. I wore a navy, sequinned dress with black stiletto heels and my mask originated from Venice (truly authentic)
For another of my Christmas functions over the years, I found this beautiful black lace and champagne fitted dress, which flattered my broad shoulders and accentuated my waist. I wore it with my peep toe Louboutins and my Chanel evening bag.
This time of year really is my favourite, I love seeing all the Christmas decorations adorning the front of shops and houses, Star topped trees in every living room and just the feeling of happiness everyone has in their hearts.
Whatever Christmas occasion you get to dress up for this year, make sure it’s glam, glitzy and makes you feel as special as you all truly are.
Until next week take care
