Glitter and Sequins...

Unless you've been walking around with your fashion blinkers on, you can't help but notice the sheer amount of glitter and sequins on the high street at the moment. I went on a little (window) shopping trip with my sister and fell in love with so many sparkly pieces.

  1. Nude Sequin Bodice Dress - £65 Miss Selfridge
  2. Sequin Wrap Dress - £35 Boohoo
  3. Sequin Bodycon Dress - £58 Topshop
  4. Asymmetric Sequin Dress - £55 Rare
  5. Skirt - £165 All Saints
  6. Sequin Front Vest - £32 Topshop
  7. Sequin Overlay Top - £38 Topshop
  8. Cap Sleeve Dress - £295 All Saints 
Between Christmas and New Year, a sequin dress is a necessity! The All Saints one is STUNNING, but at a whopping £295 it's a smidge out of my price range (when you pick up the dress you can understand why it costs so much, it weighs a tonne!). For daytime sequins, the two Topshop vests are perfect paired with skinny jeans, a neutral blazer and nude courts. My favourite by far, not only for its shape, but for being less than £50 is the gorgeous Boohoo wrap dress. I think I'll definitely be working this on New Year's Eve.

  1. Multi Glitter Wedges - £68 Schuh
  2. Sequin Peter Pan Collar Necklace - £14 Miss Selfridge
  3. Glitter Toe Cap Pumps - £15.99 New Look
  4. Glitter Bow Ballet Pumps - £55 ALDO
  5. Glitter Heel Court Shoes - £65 Schuh
  6. Models Own Glitter Polishes - £10 River Island
  7. Glitter Wedge Peep Toe - £24.99 New Look
How amazing are the Wedge Peep Toes from New Look?! I tried them on today and fell in love! Definitely a payday purchase right there. Accessories-wise, peter pan collars are great for updating plain shirts and they are dotted about everywhere from Primark to H&M. Last but not least, the glitter trend cannot be complete without nails and glitter nails are definitely having a moment right now. Models own have a great range of colours and are cheap alternative to OPI. 

What are your favourite glitter and sequined pieces at the moment? Will you be sporting them this festive season?

Much Love,
