As we’re practically mid way through December now and Christmas Night’s out and Parties will be in full swing, I thought I would share with you some alternative outfits which you can wear. Like I said in my previous posts (here and here) about what I think makes an Christmas outfit special/fabulous/better than everyone elses, I think December time is a bit of a daft month to be buying lots of new outfits/items of clothing.

Why I hear you cry..

The Sales!! There is nothing more disheartening than buying a fabulous pair of shoes in Topshop, or that dress you’ve had your eyes on for ages from Asos and then lo and behold they’re less than half price a few days later.  So what better way to get through the Christmas socialising by recycling certain items of clothing which no doubt you will have hidden in your wardrobe.

First up is wet look leggings- I have a pair from Topshop which I have had for the last 3 years and they still look good as new. If I ever get sick of wearing dresses/skirts on a night out this is what I go to. My only gripe about leggings is make sure your top covers your bits- no one wants to see your foof haha. As its Christmas, sequins and beads are needed. How fab is this vest from Topshop?? Yes I have to admit its way over priced however look at the amount of detailing it has- plus imagine if this was from All Saints.. easily add £100 to the £70. Whack a maxi clutch and some high heels- sorted.
Stripe Sequin Vest £70 Topshop.
Faux Leather Skinny Trousers £32 Topshop.
Pink Envelope Clutch £11 ASOS.
Metallic Snake Print Platform Heels £65 Topshop.

Next up is my personal favourite, and just looking at it has given me some inspiration for Black (Mad) Friday this Friday when I’m out with Michelle. On a side note I really want this All Saints skirt if it comes in the sales. I think since buying this vest from Topshop (mine is in cream though) I have really enjoyed wearing more silky/dressy plain vests. I spotted this ages ago on the Topshop site and then totally forgot about it. While having my massive Christmas party dress spending panic the other week in Newcastle I came across this. Luckily Santa’s little helper aka Papa Dave’s debit card came into play here and bought it ready for Christmas. However what Santa doesn’t know is that this top will be getting worn on Friday night (so shhh). Its Christmas and you just can’t go wrong with sparkles.

Black Vest With Strap Detail £30 Topshop (Santa has brought me this already).
Erodes Skirt £165 All Saints.

Most of you (bar me) will own a simple wrap around black dress (my cousin got a lush one from New Look recently)- simple way to jazz it up- statement heels and a coloured clutch. Simple yet fabulous
Wrap Dress with Belt £35 ASOS.
Leopard Platform Heels £65 Topshop.
Pink Envelope Clutch £11 ASOS.
