Friday seems to have come and gone without me managing to write the post that I had planned on Christmas party dresses. As we are now speeding towards Christmas with the festive party season in full swing and less than 2 weeks to go until the big day (not wanting to panic you or anything), I decided I couldn't wait until next Friday for this post.
This post is inspired by the most amazing beaded evening dress that I spotted in a Barnados charity shop last week for just £24. I couldn't believe how amazing it was and in perfect condition (and my size). Unfortunately I do not have any formal parties to go to this year (and very rarely do) so just couldn't justify a space in my already bursting wardrobe. But for those who do have something formal to go to this Christmas, I wanted to prove just how many amazing second hand and vintage evening dresses there are out there. If none of these take your fancy, I would definitely recommend trying a local charity shop.
