Festivities

It looks like most of you are already looking for elegant and evening clothes.

I have been on the & Other Stories site, as I often do, and have found too many things, basically possibilities are endless… so, I have chosen some clothes and accessories that are either wearable for both day and night, or are quite inexpensive, so you will feel ok with wearing them only twice!

Boden has some great “british” clothing and here are some suggestions:

This is a sweater I have already posted but I love it so much I am going to do it again:

Boden SEQUIN CABLE JUMPER

Boden SEQUIN CABLE JUMPER

Isn’t it just marvellous?!?! It will be great for day time too, a pair of jeans to dress it down and you will look fabulous! A pair of black trousers for the evening instead, the top is the “diva”!!

There are some classic velvet jackets, which are never out of fashion really…

The colours are great and these too can be worn as a day time blazer. As far as evening wear goes though, I wouldn’t do the boring black match but try instead to wear something in a similar shade for the dress or shoe etc. For instance, if you want the pink one, you could add a pearl grey dress and sandals/shoes in a lighter pink. I suppose the silver grey one could be suitable for a black match.

This pair of trousers and shoes would be nice with the turquoise jacket

or with the pink one

and if you don’t want to wear glittery or heels, here’s three other pair of shoes, one better than the other:

Now a few gold things…

I would wear the silver sandals with this dress.

This other dress isn’t easy at all, you do need to be nearly perfect in order to wear it… I think this one would be nice with navy accessories, if for no other reason than making  a little more classy rather than “bomb shell” look !!

 

 

Now a top:

Boden The lace up navy and warm pewter

Gold, gold with grey, love it!! And what do you think of these shoes:

They are quite unusual and the style isn’t for anybody, but if you are looking for something different, or you are “different” and do not want to have the usual classic or sexy evening look, than these are for you.

By the way, they are navy, not black!

 

That’s it for now.

Sparkly evening trousers

It all started when I was looking through the new COS arrivals, that’s when I saw a pair of gorgeous evening trousers.  I wasn’t looking for evening wear at all.. but, you know how it is… when you are not looking, sometimes you find just the right thing! In fact, I think one should never really go shopping with something too specific in mind, that way one is bound to find something to buy! And of course, were you out looking for whatever clothes and you come across for example, the pair of pyjama trousers you have been needing for ages and could never find, you should certainly buy them.

Anyway, back to my evening trousers,  they are gorgeous. They are so simple yet so different. Just a pair of black trousers but sparkly!! What’s even nicer about them is that I think they could be easily worn during the day too.  From there I went into a frenzy with evening wear and I have ended up with lots of pictures and outfits. I know it really isn’t time yet for evening wear, not for most of us anyway, but, there you are, I have found them now and I will have them now!
So, here are some outfits I put together:
