Glitz & Glamour

The minute I laid my eyes on this dress I fell in love with it. I knew straight away that it would be perfect for the party season. As my birthday is the end of December it means that the holiday season means a lot of celebrating, dressing up, and partying. This dress is so amazing for experimenting with different styles and of course I had to do a blogpost on me styling it, what else would you expect from me?! 

Because the top of the dress is very low I tied a knot on each of the straps, a bit of DIY always helps when it comes to Penneys garments. Low cut tops really don't suit me so I fixed that by simply layering a cream polo neck under the dress, which I think adds a little extra bit of fashionista to the outfit and makes it seem like I'm fashionable. 
 As this dress is such a statement I paired everything with my usual chunky black heels and a simple black clutch. I then kept the jewellery quite simple as well by adding my usual watch and some gold rings to tie everything together. 
As this outfit is very New Years Eve inspired I had to include glitter in my makeup look and of course, it's Christmas I had to wear a red lip. I kept my hair the way I usually have it, just down and curly to make sure I still looked like me as I think that is always important when I'm dressed up.
