Dress: Chi Chi*
Shoes: Schuh
Lipstick: MAC Rebel

Ahhh how amazing is this dress?! I'm actually like a magpie, so when Chi Chi offered to send me a dress my eyes were instantly drawn to the Zita. According to the Chi Chi website, the dress has been worn by celebs - but I will be completely honest, I have absolutely no idea who those two "celebs" are! But anyway, it's a gorgeous bodycon dress covered in sparkly jewels so it will be perfect for wearing over the festive season.

Usually I avoid dresses with cut out backs as they're a nightmare to find appropriate underwear for, but the cut out section on the Zita is well placed and not too big which means I can just wear a normal bra without any of the straps showing. Perfect! I absolutely love the jewel details around the collar and shoulders, they're even more pretty in real life. It's times like this I wish my hair wasn't so long so it didn't get in the way! I think this might be my New Years Eve outfit, so I'll have to get practising an easy updo that will let the dress stand out. Any suggestions or tutorials? I'm completely rubbish with hair styling!

As this dress is quite a statement piece, I haven't added any accessories apart from some glittery heels and some bright pink lipstick. The lipstick is Rebel by MAC which I bought a couple of weeks ago, and I love it. I was just having a browse on the Debenhams website and they've got 15% off beauty at the moment, including MAC if you fancy treating yourself to a new lipstick or two!

What party dresses will you be wearing this festive season?

  10. Amazing dress and absolutely stunning shoes. Not sure I could walk in heels that high though haha! I also love the fact it has a practical cut out - I can never wear those as my bras never work with it.
