The five perfect dresses for the Christmas party season

Christmas Party #1
The Work Christmas Show
Step away from the two piece suit and surprise your colleagues with some festive fashion flair. Keep the neckline high if the hemline is short and vice versa. You don't want Jerry from IT getting the wrong idea.

Dress: L'America / David Jones
Heels: Tony Bianco
 Christmas Party #2
Christmas Day

The perfect dress to take you from a family lunch to afternoon cocktails with friends. Who doesn't love coordinating their dress with the Christmas tree. Just don't stand too close.

Heels: Tony Bianco 

Christmas Party #3
Boxing Day Barbeque
The key to barbeque chic is comfort and effortlessness. Pop on a playsuit, don a hat and you'll be well prepared for a game of backyard cricket and chasing furry friends around the lawn.

 Playsuit: Forever New
Doggie: Model's own

Christmas Party #4
The Pity Party 
Ate too much, drank way too much and have a faint recollection that you may have run into Jerry under the mistletoe? Then this is the one for you. A dress that hides all sins is a friend of mine.

Dress: Bec & Bridge
Thongs: Havaianas

Christmas Party #5

Stand out from the crowd and waste no time competing for attention. Afterall, no-one wants to be alone come midnight.

Hook, line and sinker...

Hey ASOS, high five for having the ingenuity to coincide a  25% University student discount offer with the end of the exam period. It's reward for your hard work, they say. No ASOS, it's a means to make profit by exploiting the most vulnerable. And for this we thank you. With just under two weeks 'til results are released, if you have any doubt that you'll pass and can't be the part, you may as well look it.

What are you waiting for? With free shipping to boot, you've got until 4AM AEST tomorrow to receive 25% of full price stock. Click HERE to register and begin the healing process.

Here are the three pieces (each under $50 AUD) I snapped up and will be featuring over the next month or two. I decided to leave the neon orange visor from look #2 in 1983 where it belongs. Wise choice me thinks.

And if food was an optional extra these two would have been coming to a post box near me. Dear Santa...

A Spring Garden Party

Just over a month ago my good friend Elizabeth and I shared our 26th birthdays. Unfortunately for Elizabeth she was stuck in Rome with a fresh engagement ring on her finger while I was lucky enough to celebrate the occasion by attending a seminar on financial accounting. Setting Liz's jealousy aside, we decided to throw a belated birthday bash in the form of a spring garden party last week. We served pitchers of white sangria and Pimm's and played a spot of croquet. Here is a snapshot of the splendid day it was.
