I must admit when I first spoke to the lovely Matalan ladies at the Carat Media Event, full post here, and was given the A/W catalogue I was a little dubious about what I'd find inside as its not a shop I would normally venture into. However I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of items I actually really wanted so when Matalan got in touch and asked me to put together an xmas partywear post I was blown away by the amount of things I wanted to get and spent a good few days deciding what to pick. Seriously if you haven't already do check out the Matalan website here its worth a look.
Any who I choose this beautiful sequin drop waist dress and paired it THE MOST amazing pair of shoes!! I've wanted a pair of pointed courts for a while and had bought a pair from Forever 21 a while back and in the end I returned them as they were so uncomfy! However these ones from Matalan are so comfy and only £10!! Yes you read rightly only £10 and they do them in so many colours I'm sorely tempted to buy them all at that price!
So anyway less rambling this is the outfit I put together and my full styling tips can be seen on the Matlan blog here. I hope you like it! Putting the tree up for the photos put me in such a festive mood and as far as I'm concerned November 1st is the starting point of Christmas prep so expect a lot more on the Xmas front from me as I love this time of year as I've already bought a load of presents, written a few cards and my advent calendar is already on the wall and taunts me daily!
