The Christmas party season has arrived and I have nothing to wear!

Oh Fairy Godmother, may I please have the Gucci Flapper Dress to go to the ball?

Could I Razzle Dazzle em with this gorgeous Flapper dress by Jigsaw?


Maybe this year, I have to be more practical.

Plan A:

This year instead of investing in another party on christmas dress, why not reinvent your wardrobe favourites by dressing up your outfit with accessories. If you are handy with a needle and thread, a little black dress can be transformed by adding sequins, ribbon, embelishments around the hem, neck or sleeves of your dress.


My recommendation would be …. to cheat.

The girlie in me is a sucker for a bit of glitter and statement jewelry pieces. There’s nothing like diamonds and pearls to make a ladyg feel like a million dollars.

Don’t panic, the same look can be achieved with faux diamonds. My dressing table draw is full of cosmetic jewelry, I just love bangles and beads. So go shopping or even borrowing to glam up your party dress or even top and pants.

I bought this Robert Rose Necklace Button Cluster Bib Macy’s $42, it just gorgeous. So versatile and worth every dollar (and so shiny!)

This fabulously dazzling piece of Jewelry I bought on my recent visit to the UK. By Julien McDonald for Debenhams – a snip at £30. I teamed this with a black dress I bought on sale from Loft at $25 and a fringed jacket from INC at approx $79.

All that glitters…….

Givenchy Necklace Glass Pearl + Crystal Drama Necklace $150

Haskell Necklace, Hermatite Tone Filigree Statement Necklace $42

Jones NY Gold Tone Crystal Snake collar Necklace $70

Jones of NY Tri Tone two row frontal necklace $55

Just a couple of my Arm Candy pieces, I have collected on my travels.

In the mood now to Razzle Dazzle em?
