New Year Sparkle 2016

2015 truly has been a great year for me. I've achieved alot and some things that is never done before. So I'm looking forward to the New Year .

This post is just to give some fashion inspo when out celebrating 2016. There is alot of sparkles in these outfits and why not? It's the New Year. It's time to Shine.

Outfit 1
Black trousers paired with a sparkly top. Here I've given 3 different options. Option 1 a long sleeved slightly cropped top. A great option for wanting to keep warm but still showing some skin. Option 2 a gold slinky vest top. A great option for covering up but keeping shoulders bare for a more glam look. Option 3 this beautiful peplum thick strap top. A great option of you don't want to go too bare up top but still want a little arm shown. The peplum also gives great shape and highlights the waist area.

Outfit 2
This slightly off the shoulder black midi dress with neckline embellishment paired with glittery heels and a glittery clutch to add some sparkle to this LBD

 Outfit 3
My favourite piece of this outfit is the polka dot tights. They will provide some warmth whilst remaining stylish. I've added a large gold necklace and a fine black/gold belt to highlight the waist and to break the black. I've gone with a really sparkly clutch to add some character to the dress.

Outfit 4
This is an outfit I wore to a jazz night recently. I wore black leather like trousers with this very sparkly mesh long sleeved top. I added a red belt, red shoes and a red bag. It's Christmas and I felt this outfit was really festive. 

Wishing everyone a Happy New Year x

What im wearing: 1930s inspired dress

On Friday evening I attended a lovely evening reception with a Christmas theme. It was a really lovely vibe and atmosphere and got me really excited for the next few weeks.
Ive never been to a Winter wedding before so I didn't know what to wear. I didnt want to go full length or too formal but I also wanted a little warmth. Therefore I went with this 1930s inspired dress with a small fur bolero and barely there gold sandals. I kept my make-up very minimal and didn't wear any black on my eyes (only black mascara) as I wanted a bold lip.
Here are a few ideas that ive found for Winter weddings
River Island
I really like the colour and style of the first option. I detail on the back helps balance out the plain on the front. I think the models shoes are perfect with this look as they are not too much. Personally I would add a diamante belt around the middle just to add a bit of sparkle and shape to the waist. I would go with a diamante clutch with drop earrings and my hair up in a vintage do
The second option works for me because of the detailing and the mesh sleeves. Although it is short, the long sleeves keep this dress looking 'warm'. The detailing is beautiful and teamed with dainty black heels and a black clutch, would be a great wedding time look. Again I really like the hair on the model as the dress is busy enough, that an updo doesn't add anymore distraction to the look
