The moment I first laid eyes on this gorgeous embellished dress from Lashes of London, I think my heart skipped a beat. Never one to shy away from sparkles, especially this time of year, I thought it would make the perfect party dress and took it out for dinner and drinks last night with my friend. And just as I had hoped, it is true perfection! The hand-stitchd embellishment is so striking and continues around the neckline and across the back of the dress too (better picture here). The body con style is really flattering as it isn't that thin, stretchy, tight material which I never really like but it has some structure to it, so it skims the silhouette beautifully. I love that it also has a slight vintage twist to it with the addition of some fierce shoulder pads which are absolutely fabulous and did make me feel a little Gaga as I stepped out into town. I decided to keep my makeup and hair fairly simple and let the dress do the talking! I was actually really pleased with how my hair turned out which was just loosely waved with my Cloud 9 straighteners (review/tutorial coming soon) and I then just finished the look with a slick of my favourite only frosted-plum lipstick and lashings of mascara!

Have you got your Christmas party dress sorted?
