Evening Wear Wishlist

I always love this time of year because suddenly, everything gets glittery and glamorous as we get closer and closer to Christmas. Dresses get embellished, skirts and tops get covered in sequins and glitter, and everything just glams up in a big way! There is just so much out there that I want (and can’t have – sob).

I absolutely love this blue velvet dress from Miss Selfridge. Navy is such a stylish, elegant colour and I think, if teamed with these studded Courts from Topshop, it would form an incredible evening outfit, perhaps with a nice statement necklace to top it all off. I am loving my statement necklaces at the moment, I’ve only really started to like them very recently and with a lot of the options out there, there seems to be a fine line between tacky and stylish, so I think you have to pick carefully! Miss Selfridge have a really lovely selection and that’s where both the necklaces above are from, my rule is that if I’m wearing a statement necklace then I’ve got to be wearing a relatively plain dress or top, otherwise the necklace gets lost in the prints or it can all look far too over the top! I really think I’m going to have to buy this blue velvet dress though…I think it’s got my name on in.

The A/W season always feels like one which you can indulge in pretty clutch bags and embellished items. These two clutch bags are stunning, the Box clutch is from River Island – I’ve always been a bit dismissive of these box style clutches, there’s no way I’d get all my stuff in them, but perhaps for the right occasion, I think this one is actually really pretty and would go perfectly with a nice LBD for an evening out! The pink Miss Selfridge clutch with gold detail is lovely also, I think you could put it with a lot of different outfits and it would look amazing.

I love these pink Velvet shorts from Topshop also. I’m not entirely sure if I’d actually wear them, being Petite I always try to go for darker colours in skirts and shorts because it tends to streamline my figure, but I do love this pink velvet pair with the nice gold button and think they would look great during the evening to add a bit of glamour. I also can’t get enough of all the stunning embellished skirts that are popping up, these two are both from Miss Selfridge (Miss Selfridge has an amazing selection) and I think they are really eye-catching and would seriously liven up an evening outfit, as long as you wore a plain top and didn’t over-do it on the accessories.

I’m always seriously of wearing white, because I have such pale skin, but I saw this white dress on the Topshop website and thought it was so pretty! I love the fit and flare style and it seems so Christmassy, I think I’d be way too nervous to ever wear it but I do think it’s gorgeous. As ever, there are way too many items on here that I want, but everyones allowed at least a few nice bits for the festive season surely!!
