Work it baby!

Shopping at Westfield London

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?

    That dress is lovely, very demure and chic and perfect for an office party! It will look gorgeous with the other bits you’ve picked. What a treat being able to go on a mini spree in a shopping centre, it’s like supermarket sweep! xo
