Merry Christmas 2016 !!
Merry Christmas to one and all! Trust everyone is having great time spending it with family and friends this year.
Was heading out for Christmas Eve dinner with friends and therefore did a quick outfit shot before I left the house seeing I would probably be so busy ( and drunk) to be taking shots at the party. Glitter and Velvet was the call of the day with a glittered shawl ( hanging on the chair behind) to add to the outfit should it get colder as the night goes on.
I first set my sights on this slightly different take on a festive outfit when I saw fellow blogger - Elizabeth Lee from Stylewich.com style this velvet suit from Stylewe.com so invitingly on her blog a few weeks back! Said to myself - I need to get my hands on that velvet suit ( the first I would have owned in all honesty!).
The wine red/ burgundy color palette was such an elegant colour to style for such an occasion and the inspiration to pair it with gold was this beautiful pair of glitter slingbacks from H&M which I just had to have!! With block heels it was a comfortable pair to stand all evening in.
Passe or not, I decided to style the top with a black bra underneath for statement purposes. Love the high neck collar and cuffed sleeves of this lovely glitter top from Stradivarius.
To be honest, I could not find this suit initially on Stylewe.com in my right size and literally gave up looking for a similar velvet suit for Christmas. But my undying attempts to contact their store finally got me the suit and I must say - fitting true to size - I LOVE IT!! Fits perfectly and hugs me at the right places. 70s or not, it was indeed an unusual take on a typical holiday, black or lace dress choice.
