Sequins, Kimonos and Heels, Oh My!

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a fantastic Hogmanay and celebrated in style.

I enjoyed a night with some of my closest friends, Buck's Fizz and Spotify. There was a dog as well - pretty perfect party I must say. As it was a festive occasion, I decided to get dressed up in sequins, my new kimono from the New Look sale and my heeled boots.

Dress: New Look
Kimono: New Look (£10 in the sale!)
Boots: DUO

When I first saw this dress I was a little unsure as it is quite bold for me with all the sequins, but after trying it on I knew I had to get it.

I love how the shape clings to my body but without being too revealing - there's not much to show off anyway haha. Most of all, I love how it reflects the light on all the individual sequins, I can't stop staring at at it!

Forgetting the sales were on, I visited New Look on Princes St on the 28th and was surprised at the quality of the items left - I thought they would be sold out from Boxing Day sales! This pastel floral kimono had been reduced to £10 from around £25 - I can't wait to take it on holiday next summer!

And as I don't own many high heels, my DUO Boots (kindly gifted to me at a bloggers' event) were the perfect pair of shoes for a night of dancing without falling over. I was extremely happy when I realised they match my dress.

Shoutout to my sister for taking photographs of my outfit outside while it was still light - and apologies for no makeup haha! If you do like my makeup, you can check out a very similar eye makeup look I did over here.

What did you get up to for the New Year and what did you wear? Any good sale buys? I might post the rest of my purchases in another post/vlog but we'll see. I wish you all a very happy 2015!

See you soon,
