Party Time

Tuesday, 22 December 2015

Despite being a big old introvert who doesn't like parties, I made an exception for the work Christmas do. Well you have to, don't you? My colleagues are a lovely bunch, plus there was an open bar. Yoicks! I frocked up, whacked on some red lippy and went out.

If I were a proper organised sort of blogger, I'd no doubt have scheduled in a separate photoshoot outdoors, in daylight, in front of a colourful doorway to show off my outfit to optimum effect. Instead I completely forgot, got drunk and then flung my phone at someone at the very end of the night and shrieked "Don't take any pictures where I look fat!". Classy.

(Why, oh why, is red so hard to photograph? Admittedly we were in a fairly dark hotel lobby and both the photographer and subject had had a shandy or twelve but still, grrr.) This frock is the absolute perfect shade of red and I love it. You may have to see it in real life to appreciate what it actually looks like though.

London skyline tights FTW.

Dress - Dorothy Perkins
Heels - Shelly's, Spartoo
Bag - gift
Jacket - vintage, from Kinky Melon
Tights - can't remember! They're epic though.

Despite my antisocial tendencies, I had a lovely night. 


  1. I love the outfit! Its absolutely gorgeous and I feel like I need those tights!

  2. Ahhhhh! those shoes and tights! They're absolutely perfect! As is your whole outfit, I just love red and you wear it so well :) You look lovely

  3. Oh my god Alex you look GORGEOUS! That dress is perfect and I am very much in need of those London skyline tights. Hope you had a fab time x

  4. Even your glasses match! Yeah totally bright fuchsia on my screen rather than red. You look gorgeous, glad you had a great time. Those tights are brilliant.
