I have to be honest, I know this isn’t the a popular admission but I am normally not the biggest fan of sequins…. I know shock horror right? I have always been more of a lace, velvet or luxe fabric type of girl…..sparkles YES, but sequins not so much. YET I have to say since I have been seeing so many sequins on the runways of late with designers like Halpern and Templerley leading the way, the trend has been growing on me, and the best thing about this trend is I REALLY REALLY don’t think you need to spend a fortune on your sequin party dress, I have tried high end and high street and I have to say if you find the “right” high street pieces, there really isn’t any difference, so it really is a great way to save your pennies, especially coming up to the Christmas season.
The dress I really fell in love with, so much so that I am wearing on on a date night tonight is this Debut by Debenhams dress. I really think this dress is totally stunning, I love the tiered shape, I just love the swish the tiers makes as you walk, it just moves so well. Black always looks very chic and timeless, plus the style is flattering for all sizes, I love that the top of my arms are covered (not a huge fan of my upper arms in recent months) and the sequin details that give the effect of polka dots effect are just perfection. I have also shot the back of this dress, because it is so so pretty showing just the right amount of skin to be flattering for all. Best of all, for me I think that not only does the dress look designer the quality is also superb…and actually best best of all is that it is currently on sale for £104 instead of £130. click here to buy

The shoes I am wearing are also from Debenhams they are the Faith Chloe shoes which are such a great classic shape, mine are the “mermaid” colour, which is a gold, pinky red depending on how the light hits them, and they would go with so much. They also come in so many other colours, I personally LOVE the black too and I think for £39 are such a good buy (see shop my favourites below)

The clutch I am using is also from Debenhmans – it is the multicoloured ombre Petra clutch which I think is a really great buy for £35. But if you want to spend a little more, I am also obsessed with the Jenny Packham box clutch for £50, it looks so expensive and designer, and I also love the pink flower cluster clutch which has a vintage feel (see shop my favourites below)

Lastly I also had to shoot this jumpsuit as I love it so much, it is the Red Herring jumpsuit, I absolutely LOVE and the best thing of all is that it is £39! – I have to say I do LOVE a jumpsuit though, I think they can look so chic and this one really is an amazing buy – it fits so well. What do I love? Well I love the belt, the shape and it has a smattering of rainbow sparkles, giving it a fabulous 70s vibe, I just think it is a really great way of being dressed up without looking like you have tried too hard. click here to buy
