THE SEQUIN KIMONO DRESS

If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you may very well know how obsessed I am with this dress. I am quite bored of the usual bodycon sequin dresses, but I definitely needed some sparkle in my winter wardrobe, so this kimono dress came just in time. The V neck is really classy and definitely stays put, so no need to fear any awkward moments. The waist is extremely elastic and because of the loose fit of the dress, you can easily size down. Of course there is a layer underneath the sequins, so there is no way you could irritate your skin with the sequins which is a big plus for me. It's really difficult to stop raving on about this dress, I simply love it too much! They also have it in other colours here and here, however the navy one is the winner for me.

I paired the dress with some old bits that I found in my closet. I have a variety of items that I keep wearing through the years and they simply become my staple pieces and I won't get rid of them until they are absolutely unwearable. As they are a bit older, I couldn't find the exact links online so I did my best to find similar items to best recreate the look! :)

By the way, these photos were shot by my new friend, Kinga. She loves photography and goes to my university, so we have decided to meet every now and then to shoot some blog photos. That really is fantastic news for the blog, because she does an amazing job and my blog is definitely quiet whenever I'm in the UK, simply because I have nobody to take my photos :')

MONOCHROME FT. ASOS & BIBA


Heyhey! Before you wonder if I wasn't freezing my behind off - nope, this 49% wool coat does wonders. The length is great too - longer than an average coat, not quite long enough for a midi coat, but in this case it covers my bare legs and even overrides my overknee boots, so kudos for that. If you follow me on Instagram, you will have noticed that I show some love to Biba lately, which is my new department at work. I'm not asked or required, in any shape or form, to talk about it or even wear it (I bought the things for my own money), but I absolutely love the brand and the history behind it! I definitely suggest having a look to see if there's anything you like, especially as we currently have 40% off the majority of things. This jumper, in particular, is incredibly soft and warm - I really can't stop wearing it!

While I do love this new discovery, my unconditional love for ASOS is never ending and I should definitely be made ASOS brand ambassador or something, considering the amount of ASOS things I own, haha. I also got my New Years eve dress from ASOS, which you might recognize from the post below. You can have a peek here. Isn't it wonderful? ♥

With the upcoming festive season in mind, party wear is a massive focus at the moment. I decided to take advantage of the cyber weekend deals and get my New Years dress before I've even started my Christmas shopping #truefashionista ;-) ASOS are doing 20% off full-priced AND sale items until 08:00 GMT 2nd December (that's tomorrow!) by using the code CYBERWKND20 at the checkout. For those of you looking to do their Christmas shopping, this could be a great way to save some money.

When it comes to party wear this year, I am very keen on everything in dark blue and navy colors - I think it stands out more and is just as classy as black. I also love the idea of wearing a jumpsuit instead of a dress, or wearing two pieces, rather than just one. I did add some amazing LBD's too, because what is a party wear edit without an LBD section?!

I wish I could buy every single item in my party wear edit, however due to not being a millionaire, just yet, I only bought one of them. There's a hint on my Facebook page. I will receive it later today and hopefully an Instagram post will follow ♥
