What I wore for my work Christmas Party 2014

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!

    The hot pink looks divine!! Knowing me I would have gone the “safe” black but that skirt is so fabulous it would work so many ways! Always love sequins – but multicoloured sequins are amazing!

    1. Thanks Natasha! Even to the last minute i thought i would put the pink away and go black. I love that skirt, so many compliments that night. Looks AMAZING at night time, it shimmers and shines like a boss! x thanks for commenting x

  2. Love the skirt, Barbe. You looked stunning as always !

    1. Hi Antoinette!
      I saw you bought that skirt too! We have such good taste! 🙂 Cant wait to see you wear it, I received so many compliments! It shines like crazy under the night lights.
      Hope you are well in the far away middle east xoxo

    1. Hi Bev, I have to admit, i was so tempted to wear black with that. There will be other times I will wear black with those sequins. I thought the Pink will take it up a notch, it worked!

  3. Wow Barbe!!! Looking HOT in that outfit! Love the colourful sequins and it goes really well with that pink top. But then again, I have to see you NOT look good in anything you’ve worn so far. 🙂
