Boden – 40% off Partywear – My Top Ten Pieces

And the sales and discounts go on and on, tempting us to part with more of that well earned cash in order to get all festive ready, sparkling and glamorous. Next up on my trawl of current offers available in store and online is Boden.

In recent years I’ve loved that Boden has took a very retro route with it’s collections, with many pieces have full 1950s style skirts, or being 1960s shift shapes. In this post we can also add some full length options, as well as glittery shoes. The shoes include those beaded pumps which seem to have appeared on every Instagram feed, outfit post and wishlist since they were first seen at the press days, and are now available at a discounted price of £77.40.

My current favourite pieces are the glittery ballerina pumps which could add just the right amount of sparkle to your daytime outfit, and the full pleated skirt, both of which are low on stock, but if they have your size you will get a bargain and I will always envy you. (Boo, they don’t have mine!).

Here are my top ten picks from the 40% off collection.

All I want for Christmas is shoes

The title is no festive jest, as  a confirmed shoe-holic, whenever I’m asked what I would like for Christmas, another image of footwear immediately pops into my head.  Everything from Ash style wedge trainers, comfortable ankle boots for the school run, heeled boots for the weekend and something heeled and sexy for date night with hubby, I frankly find it hard to meet a pair of shoes or boots that I don’t like.

But at this time of year, it is shoes with added sparkle that catch the eye. Whether we are talking glittery shoes in the style of Dorothy from ‘The Wizard of Oz’, or metallic beauties, Christmas party shoes have to be something that would tempt Midas himself. Your party shoes can be a great way of adding glitz to your outfit if you are someone who shies away from disco-ball chic dresses. They can also add interest to a little black dress.  And, these days, flat, ballerina styles from sources such as French Sole and Pretty Ballerinas are just as acceptable for evening attire as skyscraper heels, meaning that your feet look pretty, but also feel great.

Ted Baker’s Sweet Shoppe – Good enough to eat

Some of the frothiest, prettiest fashion accessories around at the moment are the ones that form the Ted Baker Sweet Shoppe. In a range of the brightest shades that range from the zingiest yellows to the palest of ice cream pinks, the Sweet Shoppe range has it all. A great selection of tote bags, purses, gloves and shoppers, I think these are just the cutest pressies on the market this year. Personal favourites are those gorgeous Chuppa gloves, that come in my favourite colour, a yellow so bright the sun pales in comparison, but are probably more practical in the cool and neutral tan shade . And don’t forget those added glitter elements that have been added to the Sweet Shoppe shades like a touch of sherbet – it is Christmas after all!
