Christmas Party | OOTN

Instead of our usual Christmas dinner followed by a couple of drinks, my work decided to purchase us all tickets to an Alzheimer's Scotland Ball at the George Hotel in Edinburgh a couple of weeks ago. The night was packed with lots of yummy food, on-table entertainers, musicians, balloon artists and very inspirational speakers. I spent a lot of time planning my hair, makeup and outfit for the event, so I thought I'd go into detail of the outfit I wore for you today. In my previous post, I wrote a tutorial on how I did my makeup with this look.


Dress - New Look
Shoes - New Look
Clutch Bag - Next

I absolutely adore this dress. The front of the dress is covered with royal blue sequins and the back of the dress has no sequins, just the royal blue silky material. The dress was only £24 and I even got money off that price using my student discount card. The dress was very comfortable during the night and despite it being a body con dress, it didn't ride up my body as I moved from sitting down to standing up. The only annoying thing is that my hair got caught in the sequins so I had to tie it up during the night, but I think the dress is really pretty it shouldn't be hidden behind long hair anyway!

I paired the dress with some simple black heels I purchased from New Look a couple of years ago alongside a silver clutch bag from Next I wore for my school leavers prom in 2013. 

Be sure to check out my previous post to see how I did my makeup for this look.
Unfortunately, I have University exams up until the 18th of December, so I won't be as active with blog posts up until then. Please leave me some blog post ideas in the comments as I'm hoping to start planning my 2015 blog posts straight after my exams finish.

What are your plans for Christmas? Do you have any special Christmas traditions?
