Getting Dressy for Christmas

Thursday, December 18th, 2008

Chestnuts roasting on the open fire, Jack Frost nipping at your nose…. But more importantly, what are you going to be wearing for all those Christmas parties coming up? Long and Floaty? Fitted and Beaded? Metallic and Modern? Short and Flirty? Or the old favourite, the little black dress? With so many styles out there, there really is something for every body shape and budget.

Whether you’re an apple or a pear, curvy or androgynous, you are sure to find something that will make you sparkle with festive spirit. The high street shops are bulging with gorgeous dresses for every occasion, the office do to the family banquet. Personally, I think I will go with one of each! Well, it’s Christmas so surely I deserve presents? Or at least to dress like one?

With all the Christmas choccies and treats going round, don’t forget the all important undergarments, such as Spanx, they truly do hide the multitude of sins, giving you a silhouette that will be envied by all the other ladies, and let’s face it, that’s what it’s all about. All that men look for is a bit of knee, no appreciation of what we go through to look amazing and outdo each other. Marks and Spencer has some absolutely gorgeous gowns in their windows, as do H&M, Next and yes, Primark. The gorgeous gold sequined dress worn by Sienna Miller on the red carpet was quickly on sale in Primark, and just as quickly sold out. They are going on eBay at three times the original price. Wish I had thought of that first!

And let’s not forget online shopping, far easier than fighting through the throngs of shoppers, just click back and relax, your dress is on its way. As Seen On Screen (ASOS) have celebrity styled dresses to die for, it’s just a matter of making sure you have enough events to attend, though you could just wear them to decorate the tree or feed the cat.
