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!

By car:

Whether approaching Wivenhoe House from London and the South or Ipswich and the North via the A12, take the exit marked Colchester (A133). Follow the A133 towards Clacton, ignore the entrance to the Knowledge Gateway, continue along the A133 then take the B1028 for Wivenhoe before turning right into Boundary Road, then right again into Park Road. The entrance for Wivenhoe House is shared with the University of Essex but Park Road leads you through Wivenhoe Park and you will be able to see the glorious house from the road.
