It’s the time of year where we pull out our little black dress, add a bit of sparkle and get ready for a nice evening out with friends and family in the build up to Christmas and New Year. Party season is always a bit of a hectic one although if you’re in a bit of a pickle looking for a new dress and accessories then New Look is always worth popping into; they do some fantastic clothes all year around however it is at this time of year when I really think they pull it out of the bag.
In order to celebrate the launch of the New Look Party Ready Collection I was kindly sent a festive goodie bag containing accessories that I could use to help style up my party outfit. Sticking with my usual theme of black I pulled out my little black dress which is coincidently from New Look although I did pick this up last year. For my shoes I borrowed a pair from my sister (like all good sisters do) as I really like them and seeing as she wasn’t at home I naturally seized the moment.
The Lilac Glitter Clutch* was a nice addition to the outfit as it adds a little bit of sparkle without being too over the top, I also really liked the chain strap on this as it added a different element to the outfit. In regards to the make up I wasn’t too sure how I would find it seeing as it was from a clothing brand however I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. The Pure Colour Range as far as I know is relatively new and boats a modest collection ranging from eye shadows, blushes, brushes, foundation, lipstick, nail polishes and more. As you can see I was sent a few things to try whereby I would say my favourite is the blusher* in ‘babydoll pink’, closely followed by the lipstick* in ‘sweet rose’.
So there we have it, I’ve worn a very straight forward outfit here in which I’ve used just a few accessories in order to style it up a little bit more. Of course you could add more to this by wearing bracelets, perhaps glittery heels instead? That’s the joy of accessorizing, you can add as little or as much as you like.
