Holiday Sparkles

Outfit: Beaded Top - COW vintage; Skinny jeans and bracelet- Primark; Charm Bracelet - Junk Vintage; Heels - Primark; Earrings - Accessorize

Whatever season, I am an eternal fan of sequins, sparkles and beads. However at this time of year, I have an excuse to wear them even more. With two Christmas dinner outings coming up this week, I've decided to wear this outfit for both - the top is perfect to disguise the post dinner tum and the sequins enable me to look festive but not quite like a Christmas bauble.

This blouse has to be one of my favourite vintage buys. I adore its intricate beading work (especially on the back), numerous sequins and vibrant royal blue shade. When teamed with fuschia lips and dangly earrings it's perfect for this time of year.

I had my hair cut into a bob last week and am looking for some inspiration on how to wear it. If you have any suggestions, photos or can think of any celebrities who wear it well, I would love you to let me know - just drop me a note or send me an email.

I would love you to follow my blog with bloglovin

This is so fun and festive! I love the black pants and heels combo.

Your hair looks great! I love what you've got going on with it right here...half straight, half wavy. It looks really nice and effortless.

Marina said...

Love the top- it definitely suits the holiday season. As for the bob, I love curled bobs, or perhaps with the fringe curled in a 1950's style. I think it would really suit you.

Marina said...

so elegant and festive!!!!
