Be bold, be beautiful

The cheery email has arrived about the office Christmas party and your finger is hovering over the delete button at the thought of shopping for a new outfit, well think again.

If you’d rather spend your money on enjoying yourself at the party, be bold and rescue last year’s party dress from the back of the wardrobe.

We all live with the misguided notion that everyone can remember exactly what we wore last year, but that just isn’t the case.

It’s one good reason to buy a simple dress that acts as a frame for accessories and this year’s bling look will definitely give everyone the confidence to go out there and shine.

Metallics, most notably gold, are the look for this year and add a choker for that extra dash of style.

Now, don’t just wait for the Christmas party invite, book the party yourself!
