Stepping Out

When you think about it, these days Christmas (and the whole festive season for that matter) is just one big stress. We stress over what gifts to buy, what food to cook and most importantly of all, what to wear to the office Christmas Party.

And finding the perfect party dress can be pretty darn stressful.

Usually I lean towards more floaty and less fitted options when it comes to party dresses, ones that allow you to eat and drink as much as you want and then dance the night away without fear of splitting or tearing it whilst throwing some serious shapes on the dance floor.

So this little number from BonPrix is very different for me, but I love it all the same.

I was recently invited to a night of Cocktails & Canapes at the Malmaison hotel in Leeds (you can read all about the night here) and picked out the gorgeous Valencia Lace Dress, from BonPrix’s collection of pretty party dresses to step out in. As the colder nights draw in I thought I would be a little more daring and less conventional and opt for white as opposed to black and teamed it with my gorgeous Violette Stiletto‘s from Public Desire and my slink Silver Belt from Pieces at ASOS. 

Despite being fitted this dress is super comfortable as it has a little bit of give in the material and isn’t that short that I felt the need to keep pulling it down all night. I didn’t feel self conscious and if anything I think I actually felt pretty damn awesome!

BonPrix would never before have been my first choice for party wear, but this dress has changed my opinion of them totally and for the better too.

What are you loving this part season? Are you a BonPrix fan? Let me know below and I’ll catch up with you again soon, until then though x
