Holiday Party Outfit Ideas 2015

Tuesday, December 8

2009                                                  2011                                                  2014

As much as we try to live our lives with no regrets, some deeds are worth regretting. Take hideous outfit choices of past - looking at the photos can sometimes be as terrifying as hilarious. I personally have a confession to make: I once celebrated New Year's Eve in a top trying to convince others it was actually a proper dress. Do I need to add I failed miserably and every time I look at those photos I feel utterly ashamed?

I do have an excuse though. It was back in the end of December 2009, and after a tragic loss of my father a few days earlier I had this obsessive thought that it all happened 'cause I celebrated the previous NYE in a black dress and black is the color of mourning and sorrow. So I obsessively visited every local shop in an attempt to find a party dress that wasn't black, and everywhere I looked were black sequins and black lace and black feathers. And so I opted for an asymmetric blue number that was (fortunately) long enough to cover my bum. Ashamed, yes. Sorry? Not at all.

However I do hope you will not repeat my mistake and will celebrate this year's holidays in a fabulous attire whether it'll be a tacky Christmas jumper with jingling bells (I'm in a desperate need of one by the way! any tips on where to look?), an embellished bodycon dress, a flowy midi length skirt or even an edgy pair of leather pants.

What are you gonna be wearing this holiday season?

  1. Просто невероятный выбор самых отвратительно уродливых рождественских свитеров в Primark! Серьезно - я купила свитера всем членам своей семьи - один проигрывает Jingle Bells, другой с подсветкой, а третий с накладным животом Санты.

    1. Звучит просто восхитительно!) Я после видео Зои Сагг загорелась желанием стать обладательницей свитера с подсветкой или музыкой!) Зашла на сайт Primark - там такие милейшие экземпляры с малиновками и оленями, что мне стало грустно, что в Петербурге Primark нет, эх!

  2. Очень интересный пост. Не просто подборка красивых платьев, а личный опыт :)


    1. Спасибо! :) Мне кажется, в этом суть блогов - коллаж из красивых платьев может сделать любой, а личный опыт у каждого разный, и всегда интересно о нём читать :)
