Staying In, Going Out

New Years Eve splits people into two groups – those who adore going out, getting glammed up, and partying till the early hours of the morning, and those who are much happier at home. In previous years, New Years has always been a bit of a random night, usually ending up at someones house doing a bit of Singstar. The past few however have been spent at home, eating cheese and biscuits and drinking champagne – much more my sort of thing! I think thats the plan again this year, but I couldn’t not look at pretty sparkly dresses could I?

Dresses from AX Paris, Oasis and Motel – not my usual shops to browse in (well, except Oasis) but they’ve got such gorgeous sparkly things in stock at the moment! Even better, these three brands are easy to find on most high streets, so if you are still looking for an outfit for tomorrow night, you still have time!

I never need an excuse to buy more night wear and lounge wear – theres nothing more satisfying when you get home from work to be able to put on something so much more comfortable.  This week has been so nice to be able to wear lazy clothes – I think going back to work on Tuesday will be a bit of a shock! I do want a nice set for the new year – here’s a few of my choices from Boux Avenue, Jack Wills (I know, but I love the pyjama set in their brand colours. At least I wouldn’t wear it out), Fat Face (who always have gorgeous nightwear) and Dorothy Perkins (so much of my wardrobe is coming from there lately – I’ve ended up with 5 of those circle dresses I’ve posted about before!)

HtCC – Spring Dresses

As soon as the weather turns even the slightest bit sunny and warm, I have to put my favourite floral dresses on. Theres something about spring that makes me want to dress like a garden and drink tea out of beautiful tea cups. Here are a few dresses that I need in my wardrobe now (please, thanks)

These three dresses are from AX Paris*, a site that I’ve not actually looked at that much before, but I love the dresses above – especially the middle butterflies dress. Its not the sort of thing I’d usually wear but I really like that style at the moment.

I love this dress from Oasis. I have quite a few dresses already in a similar shape, and although I think the neckline could do with being a bit lower (because high necks on me just end up giving me a boob shelf), I love the pattern for being so bright!

Another brand that I haven’t really looked at recently is Matalan. I know they’ve been increasing the stuff that they do with bloggers, which is probably why I even looked at their site – I’ve not shopped there since the days when you needed a membership card (I think you had to have a limited company as well to get the card, truly old school!) Both of these dresses are only £25, and come in sizes up to size 18 – brilliant!

Another dress in a familiar shape, this time from Monsoon! I know what suits me (well, mostly) and this does! The pattern on this one is very English countryside-y – does that make sense?

OK, now I need to go and sit on the patio, drink tea and eat cucumber sandwiches and scones. Its odd what looking at dresses can make you do!
