PUCKER UP... IT'S CRIMBO!
Bidding Joyeux Noël to one and all is just around the corner. Before all the gift bearing and stuffing ourselves with food begins, there are a number of festivities to tackle...
These being a night out or two. Where I'm from Christmas eve entails going to a local pub and bumping into plenty of ghosts from the past. You may show up with a couple from the present but there is no future in any of it.
Expect the following:
Exactly what happened the year before.
An ex boyfriend (or two)
An old rival
An old bestfriend
An expanded contact book on your iphone
A face you are talking to that you have NO recollection of
A jolly time of which you will remember nothing.
What does one wear to a crimbo get together??
In younger days this type of event called for all the stops being drrraged out. Today you really couldn't give a crap but after a drink or two you will regret the clumpy boots, knotted hair and dull cashmere.
People will not read your nonchalance for what it is, instead they will jump too:
- Scruffy cow
- Have you seen the state of ...
- She's let herself go
Possibly you don't care, but, being back around the old and familiar quickly pulls you back into a state of regressive teen. Let your hair down, knock back the champers and jump on a table.
So after a long rant of nothingness, here is a simple look for the night before.
Black Dress: LOVE, Metallic Cardigan: Beacons Closet, Red Heels: ASOS.
Facile et Jolie.
I Love (haha) this cute LBD I picked up from the Clothes Show for a mere £20. It's the first item I have ever bought from Love and I am really happy with it. My girl is well-made, lined, flattering and has an interesting ribbed design. Totes versatility.
Finish off with red lips and glitter-tastic nails. Have fun xoxo
