Christmas & NYE Outfits

Christmas time and new years eve is the perfect opportunity to get dressed up and max out on the glitz and glamour. My favourite item of clothing to buy is evening wear especially dresses but I have that bad habit of wearing a dress only once awful I know!

In this outfit I am wearing H&M Velvet Top with H&M Black Trousers. Accessories wise its all gold - New Look Heels, Forever 21 Necklace and Florence and Fred Clutch.

For my work christmas party at the NEC Birmingham I knew it was going to be quite formal so I opted for Club L pink lace dress. I rarely opt for baby pink as I am quite pale I thought it would wash me out but surprisingly with some tan it suited me well. 

I bought this River Island Embellised Dress (£15) because I originally though I was going to dinner for NYE but hey plans change but I am keeping it anyway because it looks fab with tights and the embellished neckline is simply stunning. 

For NYE I am now going to a fancy dress party with the theme gangsters and molls hence the everything 5 pounds embellished tassel dress! Again I love the embellishment and for £5 you can't go wrong 

Is christmas your favourite time of year to get dressed up?

Have a great Christmas! Liz x

Festive Florals with Boohoo

Now with just 5 days to go until Christmas where has this year gone! There's lots of reasons to dress up all festive and I had just the occasion a family gathering. 

I spotted this beautiful Boohoo floral 70s high neck dress for just £8 online and knew it had to be mine! The pattern and colours are so Christmassy. Boohoo is my go to online destination for dresses of late.

I styled the dress with plain black tights and Dorothy Perkins burgundy boots that I haven't taken off my feet all Autumn/Winter.

Do you have particular outfits or colours you like to wear at Christmas time?

Christmas Jumpers are the biggest craze when it gets close to Christmas it gets rather competitive who can wear the best one too and I must say they were on the top of my Christmas list! So unfortunately I cant wear mine for text santa christmas jumper day today but I will be rocking mine on christmas day and I did wear a christmas dress the other day for The Shakespeare Hospice.

Above is my christmas jumper from Florence and Fred unfortunately it is sold out now! 

My Favourite Jumpers

I am obsessed with a selfie and I think I would probably be short enough to be an elf (I joke) so this would be rather appropriate. 

You can never not look pretty in pink...

Elf is my all time favourite christmas film and this quote just says it all

It's okay to be a bit flirty right?!

My Trip to Las Vegas

Just over 2 weeks ago me and the girls flew to Las Vegas for our best friends wedding! And to say it was the holiday of a lifetime is to say the least, I already want to book another flight.

We stayed at the Flamingo hotel on the 19th floor so we were lucky to have a beautiful view of the Bellagio fountains. This hotel is one of the cheapest on the Las Vegas strip but so central to get around. We loved it!

We arrived in Vegas late afternoon in style of course limousine anyone?! 

For dinner we headed to Sushi Samba in the beautiful Venetian hotel having never tried Sushi I was excited and it didn't disappoint. Service was impeccable.

After I had booked happy hour on the high roller where unfortunately you don't get lots of drinks but the views make up for it!

(H&M sparkly top & skirt)

The next morning we were up bright & early to go to the Grand Canyon. Something I have always dreamt of seeing and better than I had ever imagined. We booked this through Grand Canyon tours and had a great experience our pilot was lovely.

Later that morning we went to the Bellagio buffet which cost a reasonable $23.99 & we also explored the inside of this magnificent hotel. Outside was a beautiful Halloween Autumn theme.

(Wearing Asos Jack Daniels Tank Top & Glamorous shorts)

We also explored more of the strip in the boiling heat stopping at the new york new york hotel which has a rollercoaster, which is terrifying, but worth it.

On the evening we went to the XS nightclub in the Wynn Encore where we met Rickey Fallon a promoter for the club who got us a booth with free drinks. The nightclubs out there are just something else and we partied gone past 4 lets just say the hangover was bad the next morning...

On the Tuesday we had a much-needed lie in and then went along to the Caesars Palace breakfast which was even better than the Bellagio one. They had a different area for every type of food.

Caesars palace was by far my favourite hotel - the shops, the decor and a cloud ceiling what more could you need oh wait a massive H&M.

Another Hen do was planned for the Tuesday evening and we went all out with sequins and sparkly dresses mine from H&M of course. Our pub crawl (as the English call it) started with a bit of gambling at our hotel (did you know you can get free drinks & just leave a tip for the waitress bargain) then we went to the Chandelier Bar in the Cosmopolitan Hotel and the Voodoo rooftop bar at the Rio which is off the strip a bit but the best nightclub I've ever been to.

On the Wednesday we visited Downtown Las Vegas including the Stratosphere and Fremont Street. It was like I had stepped back in time very strange but cool. They even have a zip line which I was not brave enough to go on.

For the wedding at the little white chapel I wore a beautiful V Label London gold and black dress (£18). If you have never heard of the brand before they are the sister label of Virgos Lounge (less pricier too). 

I styled the dress with New Look heels £12 & Florence & Fred gold clutch £3.

The Girls

The beautiful bride

Thursday we were heading home so we were slightly depressed. We had breakfast at the Mirage hotel and then we visited the Las Vegas sign which is off the strip so you have to get a taxi. A perfect end to an amazing holiday.

Have you ever been to Vegas?
