What’s Your #partypose?

I can’t resist a challenge so when boohoo.com got in touch announcing their #partypose competition I thought I’d give it a go.

The mission was to create a party outfit for under £100, which with boohoo’s fab prices wasn’t that difficult to be honest; the real challenge is competing against other, more stylish bloggers! I never like to spend a lot on outfits I’m only going to wear once or twice so any party shopping trip tends to have a strict (and often lower than £100) budget.

My outfit came in at a total of £85. I chose this sequin dress from boohoo’s new boutique range purely because I can’t resist a good sequin frock. At £35 this was on the higher end of the price scale for boohoo’s dresses but I love it and consider it to be a bargain as it has potential to be styled in several ways so cost per wear is low.

With such a statement dress I wanted to keep the rest of the outfit fun but fairly simple. The high neckline meant I didn’t want to add a necklace in so I went for this bargain cuff bracelet at a mere £5, again seeing it as something that can be worn in several different ways.
Shoe wise, I always think you can’t go wrong with a wedge for a party, you get the striking added height but also the comfort and support that a wedge brings. Going for plain black means they can’t clash with the dress and can be worn again and again for day and night. I thought such a bold dress needed a strong shoe to carry it whether you opted for bare legs or tights (I’m always one for tights at a party, nothing attractive about frost bite!)
I was a bit clueless when it came to a bag, I’m hopeless at travelling light and usually take a large bag with me, or go to the other extreme and just not bother. I did think this sparkly clutch was pretty though and at £15 you can’t really knock it!

What do you think of my party look? Take a look at boohoo.com to get your own party inspiration and if you want to enter the competition yourself may I please direct you here.
