One thing I love about the festive season is that it's fully acceptable to wear sparkle and lots of it. Embellishment is something I'm particularly fond of at around this time of year so when I'm given any opportunity to dress up over Christmas I really go for it - life is too short to miss out on sequins and neon jewels!
I had this dress in mind when River Island posted it on their instagram account, announcing that it would be hitting the rails in a few months and I couldn't get the dress out of my head.
So when it was reduced from £100 to £40 a few days before my works Christmas party I simply could not resist. I really love the shape of this dress as it's still a flattering fit without being too tight and uncomfortable. And obviously, it was the million beads/sequins and neon jewels that attracted me to this dress in the first place - I'm definitely a magpie for jewels!
I thoroughly enjoyed wearing the dress (although I didn't manage to get any decent snaps on the night) and I'm thinking of wearing this little number again for New Year. This is breaking all of my fashion rules though, as I don't always like to wear the same dresses in close succession, but on this occasion, I may break all the rules!
