This was going to be the first Christmas party with the new company that I started working for this year, so I want to make an extra bit of effort.
Vain much? Yup.
I did all of my preparations myself except for my make up. I had that done (even if it is to save some time at home) at Laura Mercier Cosmetics at David Jones at Miranda Westfield. Laura Mercier is big on a flawless finish and that was what I wanted.
All I did when I came home was to reapply my own lipstick, in this case Lime Crime Velveteen Utopia.
I also wanted to add false lashes, but after fumbling for 15 minutes I gave up and went without. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t !
The hero of the outfit was a sequin skirt I bought at H&M in Amsterdam. The reason why I fell in love with it, apart from it being a whole lot of BLING – duh- is the length. It is a really great length for a eye catching skirt like this because it is not too short! It makes it a classy blingy skirt! H&M styled it with either the same sequin top or a festive red jumper.
I agonised over what I should wear with the sequin skirt: black is always good, but too safe. I ended up finding a lovely Three of Something pink top at Raw Edge Boutique. Trust a local boutique to have something perfect after spending hours at Westfield on Thursday night!
I had also purchased some nude pumps with the intention of wearing them for this event, but somehow black looked better.

What do you think? How would you have styled this awesome skirt? What did you wear to your last Christmas Party?
I would love for you to leave me a comment, thanks in advance!
