I don’t think that there is much by way of clothing that I shy away from anymore. My fondness of jumpsuits has reached legendary status, horizontal stripes have never fazed me (although they seem to alarm anyone looking at my stripe clad body), and bright colours and large prints are my happy place. Sequins however, have never featured on my clothing as anything more than a modest motif. Not because I have avoided them, but because I rarely go anywhere so glam that a full on sequin look wouldn’t be classed as overkill. Well having been inspired by many a fatshion blogger over the years who dares to go OTT in Tesco, baroque at the bus stop and slay in Sainsbury’s, I plan to follow suit and will be giving it loads in the living room on Christmas day. I know my family will wonder why I’m so extra but in a house with no Christmas tree or festive decorations of any sort, I’m planning to have all eyes on me and provide the sparkle that’s missing from the walls. My only concern is how close the pailettes can get to the oven before they buckle and warp, much like my inflated sense of importance.
Status update! The Darlene dress is now available at belovedendeavour.com. It’s made from soft stretchy velvet, with a lined bodice and centre back zip. Its available in sizes UK20- UK24 and UK peeps can get it before NYE if you order by 3pm Thursday 29th Dec. I think I’ve just found my new favourite dress!
I am staying far, FAR from the city centre between now and the end of January. Its CRAZY out there. There are millions of people out shopping, queues are horrendously long and there is too much activity in general. I’m staying home where its safe, warm and quiet, and doing my shopping online. This is what I have my eye on. I probably won’t get much more than the Asos belt but you never know what Santa might bring me…..
