At the moment, I'm going through a vaguely traumatic time...a slight crisis of confidence, a questionable choice of whether to continue my job or start my own, many other little things. Anyway, I have always loved Christmas and right now, in the run-up to this most glorious of feasting holidays I am taking extreme measures of solace from having already done my present shopping, wrapping, menu organising and travel preparatons. Yes, its early, but the joy of doing these things is working a charm as procrastination.
Part of the neccessary preparations I haven't done yet, I am trying to hold off! It involves packing for the different travels involved around Christmas-time as well as outfit planning for up coming outings. I am going to try something new this season - buying nothing, and instead concentrating on all the amazing things my wardrobe already holds. We'll see how long that reoslution lasts for, but in the meantime I admit to having been scouring the vintage and charity shops for a glimmering, sparkly dress - I heart sequins!
Its a bit of a magpie addiction, but I cannot stop and I practically drool at any sequin-covered thing that comes into my line of sight. This dress below, from Paprika, is one in particular that caught my eye and I spent a pleasurable few minutes this morning styling it up.
