Christmas Party season usually has me reaching for my trusty little black dress. I mean, of course I will sparkle it up a bit with a good clutch or sparkly jacket, but there’s nothing quite like the quiet glamour of an LBD. I have my work’s Christmas party coming up and naturally, I thought LBD right? But that would be too easy. I’ve never been one for easy.
So what’s the one other thing I enjoy and haven’t indulged in for a while? If you’ve been following me since day 1 (and if you have, heeeeeey gurl, thanks for sticking around!) the words “Fashion Salmon” might mean something to you. Yep, that’s right. I’ve gone for a playsuit! But not just any playsuit my friends, I’ve gone for a sexy, silky velvet playsuit. And not just a sexy, silky velvet playsuit my friends, oh no no. Check out this COAT!
Get Christmas Party Ready!
Everything I am wearing here comes from Simply Be. In terms of party wear, Simply Be have completely knocked it out of the park this year. My coat is a size 24 and it is bang on the right size for me. The cute, concealed hook fastenings give it that vintage glamour and means you can fasten it over the chunkiest of jumpers. The playsuit is by Glamorous Curve – now, I have had some other items by Glamorous Curve that were far too small. Their sizing is definitely skewed so I went up a size and it was definitely the right choice to make. It has a concealed zip at the back which reaches half way, revealing a keyhole back with a tie neck. Super easy to get in and out of when you need your inevitable wee after 20 glasses of prosecco!
The shoes are so comfortable – I’m wearing a 8 EEE because my feet are v wide but to be honest , they are a tad too big! Wearing tights helps with this though, for sure. The block heel is at an acceptable height for fellow non-heel wearing friends like me too. It’s a good choice if you’re the kind of gal that likes to dance all night but still wants to look fancy! The handbag is…well ok, it’s fucking tiny, but it’ll fit in your phone, a lippy, your keys and your cash cards with ease. There’s also no room for a tiny hip flask of vodka. What do you mean it’s only me that does that?! My earrings are old ASOS and seriously brighten up any outfit – what’s not to love?
What’s your Christmas party look going to be?
So yeah, this is what I’m wearing to my work’s Christmas do. It’s comfy as hell, looks pretty bangin’ and I’ll be able to twerk in it without showing people my vagina, so it’s a win all round if you ask me! I can’t wait to see what you’ve got lined up for your Christmas parties – feel free to comment below or find me on Twitter to show me what you’re wearing!
