High street lust #26.


The festive season is upon us and for many of us, that means Christmas parties! Have you started looking for your dress yet? I have! Due to its prices, Monsoon isn't a place where I regularly shop but they do have a gorgeous collection of glitzy dresses. In particular, the gold galileo tunic (£135) caught my eye. I just LOVE the cut of it; the flowy sleeves and the cinched waist accentuate the figure perfectly.

I don't think you should over accessorise a dress like this. In fact, I even think wearing flats such as the studded bow leather black ballerina pumps (£30) are a better choice over some killer heels. Slick your hair back and add a metallic feather spray on disc with veil fascinator (£24) or noir chuny tear drop chain earrings (£8) for some pizazz up top. The aladdins lamp embellished hard case clutch (£40) has enough detail to be interesting but not overpowering. For drama, add some eclectic christmas bangles (£8) and a pair of stitched leather driving gloves (£20). Finish off with a dark plum lipstick and modern statement gem ring (£14).

PS The Paris bon voyage tripe brooch set (£10) would make an adorable Christmas gift!
