It’s that time of year, one of my favourite stores, The Dressing Room, is about to start their sale and I was lucky enough to get a sneak preview of some of the fabulous pieces to be reduced. I’ve done a few of these sale preview posts in the past but I can honestly say this was the most fun. The girls at the DR always send lovely items but the ones I received to style this time were just sublime. Honestly, any one of them would fit perfectly into my wardrobe. I’ve styled them with a party theme in mind as NYE is just around the corner and if you’re looking for a new outfit, now is the time to bag a bargain! The first item is this beautiful Day Birger Et Mikkelsen silk tee with lace insert detail. I cannot overstate just how lovely this top is in the flesh. It’s hard to see the detail on a black top but believe me, this is special. The perfect top for when you need something to wear with skinnies and heels while looking polished and chic.
And here I am in it. I paired it with sequinned leggings and black patent pumps for a rock chic feel. The next item is this stunning jumper from Cocoa Cashmere. This beautiful lace print knit is so thick and soft, I didn’t want to take it off. I wear a lot of cashmere in the winter but always plain block colours so this felt really different and just a little bit special.
Here I’ve paired it with a tulle midi skirt and bright suede pumps. This is the kind of outfit I’d wear if I were hosting drinks at home, comfy and relaxed but still glamourous. I love the mix of textures in this outfit. The last item I was sent is this stunning top from American Vintage. Made in a lovely heavy crepe fabric it just drapes so beautifully and the distinctive, go-with-anything print makes it a no brainer when getting dressed in a hurry. I was very kindly offered my favourite item to keep and this is the one I decided on. I can see myself getting so much wear out of it!
I’ve put it with leather leggings and bright pointy pumps for a simple, edgy look that could take you just about anywhere. This is a very strong contender for the illustrious title of Xmas Day outfit!
