ROCK THE {PARTY} FROCK

Strictly, X-Factor and Dr Who are on the TV and for me that means just one thing… the countdown to Christmas has begun!

I’ve already got a number of festive invites in the diary, and am determined to avoid the inevitable dress dilemma this year! The highstreet is packed with new season shimmer and sparkle, which will no doubt be sold out in the blink of an eye, so I’ve been hitting the highstreet and some of my favourite online haunts to find some of the very best festive frocks around.

This year my motto is ‘go big or go home’, and I’m fully intending to rock full on sequins to every event.  For the festive 40th I’ve got my eye on chic seperates, the village hall wedding anniversary celebrations call for a subtle sequinned dress, and the city industry party definitely demands something chic and sexy so I’m currently coveting a sparkly jumpsuit!  Whatever your event diary looks like this Christmas, you’re sure to find something that fits the bill here…

After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

You’ll also find me working as an Editorial Stylist, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as contributing as a founding member of bridal inspiration hub Aisle Society, and running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive from our super pretty base in London. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
