A Bit Of Christmas Sparkle In A Dress

needle-thread-sequin-dress

(Dress – Exact ON SALE, Blazer – Similar, Shoes – Similar, Necklace – Exact, Ring – Exact)

This dress is amazing isn’t it? The intricate detailing, the sequins, the design, the ombre, it’s just stunning in person and since I’m attracted to anything sparkly, much like a magpie, I was instantly drawn to this dress the moment I saw it in the Autumn/Winter 2013 collection! It’s by Needle & Thread and I think it’s perfect for the holiday seasons! It will look great for any Christmas or New Years Eve parties! I was absolutely freezing when we took these photos, but I wanted to share with you the outfit I plan on wearing for Christmas. I decided to dress it up with a black blazer from Zara and black heels from Topshop, to make it a bit more conservative and obviously give me a bit of warmth. I’m not overly fond of wearing such minimal dresses without some type of cover on top, so that’s why I decided to have such a strong blazer, to give everything some structure. For my accessories, I wore my Baccarat crystal necklace, my Butler & Wilson double finger eye ring and my ASOS pink crystal ring.

For those of you who are interested in the size of the dress, I took it in a size 10 as I didn’t want it to cling. I’m between an 8/10, so if you don’t want it really clingy, I recommend going with your normal size or your bigger size, depending on how you fit clothes! It’s also in the sale at ASOS, so make sure you snap it up if you love it! Speaking of sales though, I absolutely love this time of the month for shopping! So many shops have amazing sales before Christmas and after Christmas, but there are also wonderful deals and codes to be found too! If you keep a check on Voucher Box, they might have a code pop up for your favourite store! They often have clothing shops and restaurant deals! I have done a bit too much shopping myself actually, I’ve bought quite a few things and taken advantage of discount codes, so I don’t feel as bad about it, ha ha. I’ve got all of my Christmas shopping done though! Which is amazing for me! Anyway, what do you think of the dress? Comment and let me know!

      Thank you so much!!

    Gorgeous outfit! the dress is stunning!! It would also look great with opaque black tights, though I see from reading your comments that tights irritate you, so fair enough 🙂

    Hope you’re enjoying this time of year! I really miss Christmas decorations. They do have them in Jordan, since lots of people celebrate the holiday, but just not the same 🙂

    Sx

    • December 15, 2013 / 1:21 pm

      Yeah I’m not a huge fan of tights, unless they are the soft ones! That’s a shame you don’t have the Christmas decorations!
