Festive Frocks

We're up to our noses in holiday prep here, and we're as giddy as schoolgirls about it!
OK, we're not all that keen on all the housecleaning we had to do (though it did mean reorganising our closet, and we're always up for that), but our pantry is stocked full of fragrant spices and enough chocolate to feed a small army, and we're doing the next thing we love best- planning our holiday outfits!

There are so many dinners and parties to attend, and all of them are a glorious excuse to dress and overdress, so we made (as we always do), several sets for our and your inspiration. 

Of course, we have to have a Vamp set, and it really has to include a lurex top and a wiggle skirt. It has just the right amount of sparkle to draw attention while still being very appropriate for any type of work party. Pair with red nail polish and some lacquered shoes and purse for a really vampy look. 

A more glamorous version has to involve a siren inspired dress, and glamour deserves some black lace and a red (faux) fur shrug. After all, 'tis the season! Keep the accessories matte for an extra sleek look, and just add a swish of red lipstick. 

Then again, there's the romantic outing. Perhaps a walk through the Christmas fair or a cosy dinner for two? Which ever, we've got you covered. A dress with floral details and a matching cardi, paired with a pair of comfy and pretty wedges for those evening strolls under Christmas lights. 

We saved the sweetest outfit for last. Cute and stylish, it just calls for a meal with your loved ones, be they friends or family. We love the combo of red and green, and the holiday season is the perfect time to wear it. 

Did you finish your holiday prep yet? Don't forget you can see all our sets over on Polyvore
