Christmas Eve

blouse: mango
skirt: river island
belt: ebay
boots: topshop
watch: michael kors
ring: topshop
nails: essie 'beyond cozy'
lips: sleek 'vamp'

I'm slightly behind on my blog posts due to the current festivities! I did plan to upload this at some point during Christmas day but the mulled wine unexpectedly went to my head! Every year my family and a few family friends have a Christmas Eve meal at The Lyttleton restaurant nearby where I live. It's a good chance to get my sparkly glad rags out (any excuse!) and catch up with some old friends. I bought this studded blouse whilst I was in Marbella back in the Summer and regularly wear it to work during the day. I paired it with this gold baroque skater skirt which I picked up today and is now annoyingly in the sale, grr! But oh well. It has a really unique mottled velvet texture which I quite like and it's definitely suited to the festive season. I would also consider wearing this during the day maybe with an over-sized black boyfriend jumper or something.

I mentioned in a previous post how I have a new found love for Sleek lipsticks and 'Vamp' is another example. It is a deep blood red shade which I always find difficult to come across as many lipsticks have too much of a purple undertone. I'm also crazy about this Essie nail polish I picked up the other day whilst on my travels. The polish is really iridescent and eye-catching when caught by the light and reflects a very silver gold glitter. The glitter particles are really small so they really do glisten on the nail after about the second coat. 

I hope everyone has had a lovely Christmas and got everything they wished for! I've certainly been a very spoilt girl this year and also hit the dreaded sales today so will definitely get round to doing a post about my recent purchases.
