Last minute party wear inspiration
Interesting run up to Christmas I’m having. Crimbo cards are on my kitchen counter but not sent. Turkey crown not ordered (am thinking it will have to be a frozen gobbler now). And nothing, nothing new to wear on Christmas Day.
This one, at least, I can sort today, because I’ve just spent a fun few hours browsing online for party gear and I’ll share the fun because it might help you to decide on a last minute buy too! You can see I’m feeling the black and gold this year (plus a bit of faux fur – that leopard print coat, above, is from Zara and £69.99).
If you’re in Oxford, just head into the Clarendon Centre where all this clobber can be hoovered up into your bag in one delicious swoop, otherwise, make a cup of tea, pop a choccy in your mouth and click your way to a sparkly glittery sartorial Christmas!
