My pre-Christmas Purchase from

I mentioned the other day that I had done my early Boxing Day shopping. As you know from my New Years Eve post my pre-Christmas purchase from have arrived. I thought you might like to see what I found so difficult to resist, although as everything was 75% off when I bought it, that alone would be hard to resist! These items and many more great things are still 50% if you were given some money for Christmas and are in need of a fashion fix.

Silver skirt for New Years Eve

New Years Eve Skirt: It looks pretty average here. Almost like a sheet of foil. Have a look at how I wore it to attend a New Years Eve party with some friends here. Promise it looks much nicer on!

Oxblood Sequined Bomber Jacket

Oxblood Sequined Bomber Jacket: You’ll definitely be seeing this styled and on when I attend the L’Oreal Fashion Festival in March. I’m not 100% sure how I will style it but I am sure that I will be wearing to one of the nights. Any thought from you all on how you would style it if you were heading to a fashion event?

Trench Coat - Dress

Trench Coat – Dress

Trench Coat – Dress: Officially it is a trench coat. But in my mind it will be perfect as a coat dress when the weather cools. Then when it get really cold, I can layer it with a skirt, tights, top and boots. I have been looking for the perfect trench coat style dress and couldn’t find one. When I saw this one, I had to have it. Plus I love the metallic grey colour and the purple together. With a great pair of heels it will look very secret spy!

How gorgeous are these colours?!

I've changed my mind about the wedding

Evil Step-monster Dress: You may recall I found a great colour block dress when we were in Spain that I thought might be perfect for my eldest step-daughters summer wedding in February. However, this dress from was so beautiful I’m thinking it may be the one to wear. It’s VERY bod-con but would look fantastic with my navy satin heels. I just need to drop a couple kilos so I’m not so self-conscious in this dress! Otherwise, it’ll be the colour block dress. Such tough decisions! I guess I could get through the reception without eating…or drinking…or sitting…

There you have it. My pre-Christmas purchases from What do you think? How would you style them?
