WhatLauraWore: The Christmas Party

That time of year has come where the panic sets in and we all start flapping about what we’re going to wear to all of those Christmas and New Year parties, am I right girls?  Well for me, Christmas party season certainly seems to have snuck up on my blind side this year and I’m so pleased that AX Paris have been at hand to help my through the nights out I’ve enjoyed so far this season.  One such night out was for my Christmas party with work last weekend.  The event was held in a classy riverside venue with a Casino Royale theme, so I knew from the outset that I would need to dress to impress.  For me, it was a case of go glam or go home!

I chose the Jewel Drop Back Dress in the colour aubergine (also available in red, purple, black and leopard print) because it was a colour I wouldn’t usually go for.  On the night, I felt a million dollars in this dress because it is a great fit and the embellishment on it is gorgeous.  It is a great fit; plenty of room in the bust, an elasticated back panel and just the right length to be flattering but still sexy.  I got lots of compliments on my legs at the party, let alone the dress!  The jewelled detailing on the dress meant that I didn’t need to add lots of jewellery as the sparkly jewels spoke for themselves.  I popped in some statement feather earrings from Matalan in a similar colour to the dress and wore a silver bangle from Red Herring at Debenhams to match the jewels.  I kept my other accessories simple and to a minimum, with my black clutch from Dove and peep toe heels from Matalan, to really let the dress do the talking.

  1. Gorgeous dress! You definitely know how to dress to impress - glamour seems to be your thing!

    1. Thanks Tabitha, I love trying to look glam on an evening out! xxx

  2. You look so beautiful! I was looking at this dress the other day, was very tempted to get it but thought i'd leave it, think i'll go back and get it now tho :) There are quite a few colours, which would you reccommend for a redhead?

    1. I'd probably say the red actually. I saw a picture of Lily Cole wearing a red dress once and her red hair looked amazing against it xxx
