Christmas Party Outfit Challenge

Hello! I have been contacted a couple of times by Fashion Vouchers to see if I wanted to take part in their Christmas competition. I think this is really fun and if you have seen my ASOS and House of Fraser posts before, you will know I enjoy putting together posts like this! The Christmas party outfit has to be £100 or under and mine came to £75.



As you can see, I have kept it quite simple. I love this dress because it's black so not too crazy or bright, but the sequin bodice makes it a lot more festive and party appropriate! I love the sweetheart neckline too. I actually really want this dress for my Christmas party but they don't have my size! 

As for the bag and shoes, I have kept them very simple and plain as I thought the sequins on the dress should be the stand out feature! 

I actually have been eyeing this bag up for a while and it's now on sale! I may have to make a sneaky purchase soon. It's plain nude and I love the envelope style and the metal detailing around the edge.

Finally for shoes I chose nude shoes to match the nude bag. In the photo they look slightly more pink but hopefully if you wore them nobody would notice, unless you put your bag down on top of your feet. These just look like lovely, plain and simple heels which would go with any outfit after the Christmas party too!

That is my Christmas party outfit! It's pretty simple but hopefully not too boring! I thought the dress should be the main, stand out feature as it's sparkly and festive and I didn't want anything else to detract from that!

Let me know if you do this challenge as I would love to see it! If you would like more information on how to enter this competition then click here.

  1. That dress is gorgeous! I'm almost glad it's not in stock in my size as I'd have just spent £45 which is not good this close to Christmas ;)keep an eye on it though, might be in the January sales (fingers crossed).

  7. Lovely outfit! Totally agree with you on the dress, I always hate things that are too 'flashy', the sequins are just enough glam x
