A couple of weeks ago I was asked by Matalan if I'd like to take part in one of their Monthly Style Projects and I absolutely jumped at the chance because it sounded like so much fun. This months theme was Party Season Style & I was given a £50 gift voucher with which I had to pick out an entire outfit and this is what I chose!
Dome Shaped Ring - £3.
As the theme was party season style I knew instantly that I wanted to pick out a dress and as soon as I tried the Jade & Black Lace Butterfly Bow Dress on I absolutely fell in love with it! It is quite short on me, I'm around 5'9 & in an ideal world I would have preferred this dress to be a couple of inches longer as I'm the first to admit that my thighs aren't my best feature! Because of that & I wouldn't want to be freezing cold at a Christmas party I opted for a pair of thermal tights & these are incredible. They're wonderfully thick & they keep you super warm so I'm planning on investing in a couple more pairs of these for sure!
I didn't want to go overboard with the accessories because I wanted to keep the dress as the statement of this outfit but I saw the ring in the sale section (I'm sorry I can't seem to find it online anymore!) and thought it would be a nice little extra touch.
Finally, it wouldn't have been a party outfit without a pair of beautiful heels and as soon as I saw the Metal Detail Platform Shoes I knew they would be perfect with the dress. These heels are SO high, I must be about 6'4 or something when I'm wearing them & honestly, I can't walk in them at all - actually I can only just about stand in one place with them on! I have no idea how you beautiful ladies walk in heels this high, I have a new found admiration for you! So even though I'll probably never wear these shoes again, I'm going to keep them in my wardrobe and look at them fondly every now and again because they really are beautiful! And I'll probably sneakily wear them around the house because they're too pretty not to be loved!
