There's nothing like a sequin or diamante to get a girl in the mood for the festive season. I always like to plan my options ages in advance. I like feeling organised and can then move onto other things like Christmas baking, present buying and wrapping and decorating...
Rather aptly named, the Mia dress just screams Christmas. Perfection. It's from Boden who make lovely things for ladies and kids. It's so sparkly without being over the top. Gorgeous.
this Sussan number is for you. At almost $300, it's obviously not a cheap option but it's fabulous. Wear it with a wedge as they do in the photo and it's a Christmas Day staple. Wear it with a gold heel or sandal and you get double duty as a cocktail frock. Win win.
In a freak co-incidence, Leona is also doing a metallic sequin sheath this season. For, believe it or not, cheaper. A whole 95c less than the Sussan option. But it all adds up I guess! The Meredith is a limited edition Ruby dress.
If metallic sequins are too much for you, then the Carrie Dress might be what you are looking for instead - black sequinned flutter sleeves with a draped sequin panel across the back. Stunning.
The Bow dress - another Boden speciality - is not actually glittery but I think it provides the perfect foil for a fabulous jewelled necklace. Very festive indeed. And the lack of sparkle is actually an advantage in this case. It can be worn day or night. Versatility is key and this Audrey Hepburn-esque dress is nothing if not that.
Georgie is for you. Aside from the fact it has the most fantastic name, it's a wonderful dress. The classic cut means it's simple enough to wear again and again but the soft subtle sparkle makes it extra special for the festive season. I think it's my #1 pick. If only they had it in my size... And I wasn't on a shopping ban... Oh why do I torture myself?
At this point I don't know what I'll be wearing for Christmas. So many options. Are you an early planner like me or a last minute dresser?
