‘Tis The Season For Sequins

With just over two weeks until the “big red man with the long white beard” comes to town it’s time to start planning those party outfits.

With just over two weeks until the “big red man with the long white beard” comes to town it’s time to start planning those party outfits.

This week I nipped to The Quadrant in Swansea in search of sequins, velevt & faux fur – all those stereotypical festive fabrics but it is Christmastime after all and when else can you get away with dressing like a shiny disco ball?!

The minute I walked through the entrance I spotted the Debenhams window which was full of glitz. The dress in the centre caught my eye so I headed straight into the store to start my search and here it is, by a brand called Blue Vanilla and priced at £35 it’s a must have!

Warehouse have got an amazing party collection this season including this rainbow sequin number which is flattering in shape & length and for the quality I think it’s really reasonably priced.

Next I wandered over to Quiz as if you’re looking for a sequin number you couldn’t walk by without noticing their eye-catching selection. These trousers are a great way to add a little sparkle to your outfit without going head to toe & you can tone them down with a plain black knit like I’m wearing here (jumper H&M).

If you fancy something different what about a suit with a quirky tee under or a silk camisole like the shorts suit below from Quiz.

I also had the chance to do a make-up masterclass with the regional make up artist for Chanel at Boots within the Quadrant. We did two looks, an every day look with a muted red lip and a party look with heavy smokey eyes & a metallic red lip.

There are so many great beauty counters now within Boots & Debenhams, if you want something more understated head to Bobbi Brown, Chanel or Clinique. If you’re ready for a bolder look visit MAC, Urban Decay or No7.

Hope you enjoyed reading.

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas full of love, laughter and, of course, some sparkle ✨
