I wasn’t looking for an LBD this year but when I spied this one in Miss Selfridge a few months ago, I had to grab it, because it’s so rare I actually find anything that fits me properly! I think the LBD is such a great look for Christmas and New Year, and this Miss Selfridge number is one of the best I’ve ever bought – I love the sequin details which add that extra bit of shimmer (ideal for the time of year) – I think Christmas is the best excuse to wear a bit of sparkle and glitter – not too much though of course. This fit of this dress is great too, the material is quite stretchy, so it appears pretty tight fitting, but doesn’t leave me unable to breathe! Plus it’s a great dress to wear a pair of pretty shoes with and an excuse to wear skyscraper heels, if that’s your thing! Miss Selfridge actually have an amazing range of dresses this year so if you’re still looking for a last minute Christmas outfit, or dress for New Year, then I would definitely have a little look!
If there is a time of year made for red lips, then it’s Christmas! There is something so effortlessly stylish about the simplicity of a back dress with dramatic, red lipstick that it’s no wonder the look gets recreated year on year at Christmas parties and events – if in doubt, an LBD is always the perfect option for an occasion where you need to look your best. However, if you’re anything like me, and find the application of red lipstick ridiculously difficult, then Rimmel have come up with an amazing solution. I’ve always really struggled to get red lipstick on correctly, without smudging it everywhere, so the Rimmel Apocalips is literally ideal. It’s a lip lacquer; so it’s an intense shade of lipstick with a lacquer shine, which means it glides on like a lipgloss yet still has that fantastic colour which you’d get from a lipstick. It’s honestly the most amazing product and the first one I’ve ever had any success with in terms of the red lip, I would seriously recommend trying it – and the best thing about it? It’s not stupidly expensive!!
