Great British Christmas Sparkle at Boden

Well the party season is now in full swing, and, if you’re diary is anything like mine, you’re actually looking forward to having a little bit of relaxing time over the Christmas break. But, before you get to that point, it may well be party central. There are work parties, dates with friends, a girls night out, trips to the panto, the theatre, family meals…need I go on.

You may well have all your wardrobe sorted for your numerous events and outings, but if you are still looking for something to wear on Christmas day, or New Year’s Eve, this is actually the best time to pick something up, as so many stores are holding discounted events in the run up to Christmas, including Christmas advent discounts. This means that you may find something you’ve had your eye on at a cheaper price, before everything gets snapped up when the sales start proper.

Boden is one store who have been adding discounts throughout their site for the last few weeks, and as they are doing Christmas sparkle so brilliantly this year it is well worth a browse if you are looking for something special and glittering. As ever, the shoes are just to die for, so pretty and glamorous, whilst the range goes from high octane velvet and sequins, to casual, classic knitwear with just a touch of glitter and embellishment.

M&Co – A fabulous Festive Offering

I love that time of year when the shops suddenly become all sparkly and glittery, and we start to think about the real party season. Yes, Christmas is on its way, and as much as we are thinking about presents, we are also turning our minds towards our wardrobes.  Because Christmas is the one time of the year it is actually encouraged to be as bright and sparkling as a Christmas tree, and the seasonal offerings from our favourite stores echo this fact.

For a spot of Sunday shopping this week, I’m turning my attention to M&Co. They have started to promote their party shop and it is chocked full of beautiful pieces that will enhance your wardrobe. With some great petite pieces in store at the moment, as well as the mainline range, M&Co are giving you the opportunity to shine, but to also be true to your signature style. If you love your glamorous dresses, they have Temperley inspired embroidery, and full skirted prom dress styles to embrace that inner Grace Kelly. But there are also beautiful tops that could dress up your jeans if you prefer your style more low key, and glittery shrugs that could give you a sparkly daytime look.

Here are some of my key picks… and maybe a bit of inspiration.
