If your favourite shopping centre invited you down for an evening of retail heaven and gave you £100 towards your spree you wouldn’t turn it down would you? My love for Westfield London is well-documented so when they asked me, as 1 of 5 bloggers, to take part in a Christmas styling challenge it goes without saying that my response was “hell yes!”. Our mission was to buy a key piece for a specific festive event, in my case the office Christmas party.
You’d be forgiven for thinking this would be super-easy but faced with over 250 shops I admit I almost didn’t know where to start! I knew I wanted something I’d be able to wear all day and just dress-up at 5pm: it obviously depends on your workplace’s dress code but mine is pretty casual and for our first of 2 parties (I know!) we’ll be going out straight from the office.
You can’t go wrong with a dress and this full-skirted dress from COS is just the blank template I was looking for. I’m planning to wear it sans-tights but if the weather doesn’t permit it I’ll opt for a cute patterned version, probably polka dots. Of course at Christmas-time sparkly accessories are compulsory so I’ll add an embellished M&S headband, statement cocktail ring from Accessorize, some glittery heels from Next, and finish off with a swipe of bright lipstick and a spritz of perfume! What will you be wearing for your work Christmas party?
