Christmas LBD: Next Premium Black Embellished Dress!

Monday, 1 December 2014

Now it's officially DECEMBER (waaah), let me introduce you to Christmas party dress numero 2! When I visited the Next Winter Press Day earlier in the year, I was allowed to pick a sample as a gift. There weren't any prices on any of the items/garments, but rather unsurprisingly, I ended up picking the most expensive dress in the room. A-hem.

Next launched their premium collection earlier this month, and the most beautiful piece is this premium black embellished dress. I'm all about little black dresses with a hint of something special. This classic shift is adorned with beads and embroidery which gives it a luxurious quality, it's wonderfully lined and the size 8 falls perfectly on me.

I accessorised my look with a splash of berry (because who doesn't love berry and black), my fave burgundy fedora and this deep red Mi Moneda coin which was a sale bargain! If you're a regular reader, you'll know I'm obsessed with Mi Moneda and how versatile their jewellery is. This month I was featured in their brand new magazine, which is distributed worldwide, under the Inspiration, blogs we love section... Alongside one of my fave bloggers, The Little Magpie! The magazine is full of new styles I want to get my paws on so here's to hoping I get some new pieces for Christmas.

Have you sorted your dresses for the festive season? Are you a fan of Next's premium range?

T - All about the sparkles.
