Christmas (Glitter)Ball - Outfit Post.

A little lack of blogging this week, apologies, but it's that time of year, I'm working full hours 5/6 days a week now! 

This weekend I am off to a Christmas meal and ball with my dad (and many others) so of course I needed an outfit! I was going to buy a new dress but during a wardrobe clear-out last week I found a dress I've never worn before. It's puffy, it's glittery and it's perfect for hiding a full tum:

I bought this dress from a stall in Camden about a year ago for £40.

Necklace from River Island bought by my mum last Xmas.

You can see the sparkle, it is kinda all over but it's subtle and not tacky.
I also added pearls and curled my hair so a more 'quaint' look. 

Nude Bow Heels - Primark £11
Can you see my goosebumps - so cold will have to wear nude tights!
 So that's my outfit! I'll probably just sling on a leather jacket to keep warm getting in and out of taxis.

Are you off to any special Festive Do's? If so what are you wearing?

Oh an one more special thing, today is the Queen of pop's 29th Birthday:
