it's almost december which means one thing.. party wear! (yep don't panic I wasn't heading to the supermarket when I braved wearing this ensemble out in the cold.. ) 

everyone knows I tend to steer towards the more casual side of fashion, when it comes to nights out my only concession is adding heels alongside my denim jeans. christmas however is the exception- dressing like a human glitter ball is 100% acceptable in my book (more is definitely more!) nobody does party dresses like topshop so I was excited to road test this chainmail number.

their latest holiday campaign is full of my festive favourites (read velvet and sequins.) this slinky silver chain mail dress turns into a sparkly rainbow under lights which makes for perfect 80's-esque dance floor attire. I'm not usually a body con kinda girl but I figured I'd go all out.. and in the spirit of OTT dressing I couldn't not grab this gorgeous oversized animal print faux fur coat. WIN! 

I've paired them with some over the knee boots (in an effort to stay warm- I kid you not it was freezing here this week!) these boots fit beautifully and I'm looking forward to wearing them over skinny jeans or with a floaty vintage dress as a daytime option. 

I'm currently at my desk in my faux fur, turns out it's more effective at keeping me warm than my central heating..

back soon!
