3 Petite Dresses Perfect for Christmas Parties

Take a quick look at your diary, have you got any Friday’s free in December before Christmas?

I know I haven’t, in fact my diary is already full of work Christmas parties, or old people I used to work with Christmas drinks and other ‘because it’s nearly Christmas’ excuses to get together with.

Tis the season and all that.  Despite watching my bank balance take a fatal nosedive at this time of the year, what I do love is the dresses.  When else can you get away with gold sequins or glitter adorned dresses that would make even the 90’s jealous?

And for that reason, here are some my the best Christmas dresses I’ve seen out at the moment.  (I may or may not buy them all):

1. John Zack Petite Lace Bodice Chiffon Skater Dress

John Zack Petite Lace Bodice Chiffon Skater Dress

Nothing gleams of Christmas quite like this type of red.  When scrolling through my ASOS app this dress shone out brighter than a star on top of a Christmas tree.  Perfect for corporate office Christmas balls, with a lopsided gold Christmas cracker crown after a few wines into the evening.  See more over on ASOS here.

2.  ASOS PETITE Embellished Floral Flutter Sleeve Skater Mini

ASOS PETITE Embellished Floral Flutter Sleeve Skater Mini


Navy isn’t praised enough around this time of year, especially when combined with gold beads and sequins.  What makes this dress especially wishlist worthy (at the very least) is the goregous 70s inspired winged sleeves.  Something to make you feel as cool as Stevie Nicks.  See more over on ASOS here.

3.  Boohoo Petite Isobel Crushed Velvet Wrap Bodycon Dress

Okay this dress choice might have thrown you, but can you really see crushed velvet looking as good in summer?  Nope me neither.  The fact that both the material and this on-trend colour is bound to fade out soon should get you wanting to wear it before something like camo comes back.  (Oh wait, camo is already back urgh.)  See more over at Boohoo.com here.

New Purchases Show & Tell – September 2016


Catch up & watch

We’re nearly done and dusted with September – can you believe it?  This month has gone so fast for me personally.

This could be down to the fact I started a new job on the first day of this month, which could explain why’s it’s whizzed past so quickly.

Anyway, watch my video below to see if this has affected my New Purchases Show & Tell this month!

Oasis Ditsy rib collar knit – 12 seconds in
So the answer is yes – me starting a new job has definitely influenced what I’ve been buying this month!  I always knew Oasis existed, but never really ventured in until the other weekend.  There’s so many collared knits and boho influenced clothes in there at the moment; I am totally sold.  Really comfy too!

Boohoo Petite Melissa Floral Print Playsuit – 1:10 minutes
I’m not always happy with what I’ve ordered from BooHoo, usually down to the quality.  This playsuit however missed the returns package and for good reason!  For only £15 it has a great floral print that could work both for summer and winter.  It’s not the best fit, but for the price I can’t complain.

Adele – 25 – 1:55 minutes in
Adele absolutely wiped the floor with my previous doubts about her headlining Glastonbury.  She completely blew me away and so I just had to buy her latest album.  There’s definitely a stronger feel compared to the heartbreak of 21, but still packed full of emotion.  It actually brought tears to my eyes when first listening to it and I’m still belting it out in the car now.  (Good job I don’t lift share.)

L. Erickson Grab & Go Pony – 3:18 minutes in
I was a bit put out when receiving one, just one, of these hairbands in a Birchbox earlier this year.  But since wearing it I soon realised it was a damn good hairband.  They are a little pricey for what they are, but my hair doesn’t kink when I’m wearing them and they still have a strong hold.  Worth investing in.

Huygens Exfoliating Cream – 3:54 minutes in
It’s hard to believe this exfoliating cream is exclusive to Birchbox.  It wasn’t in the sale but I was planning on getting my hands on a full size version ever since my sample ran out anyway.  This definitely deserves more attention.

Model’s Own Absinthe Nail Varnish – 4:15 minutes in
Another Birchbox sale find – I can’t believe how cheap this was!  I had actually chosen the black colour over the green in a Birchbox, a long time ago now.  I regretted not opting for this colour though and so when I caught sight of it in the sale for only 70p, or thereabouts, I nabbed it quick.  What an absolute steal!

Boots Bamboo Tights – 4:59 minutes in
Come autumn and winter, I am never without Boots’ Bamboo tights.  I’ve never found a pair of tights so soft to wear, but still fitted and flattering at the same time.  They are my tights of choice.

Another random month this month, but I hope you enjoyed it all the same.  You can keep up to date with my blog by following me on any of the social links below.

Please also leave any recommendations you might have, based on what I’ve been buying – I’m always down for hearing people’s suggestions!
