So it’s getting Christmassy over here at MissPond, with the Christmas Handmade Fair yesterday and quite a few Christmas lattes already it’s fair to say it’s hit me hard. At work we’ve had the Christmas party planned since September… So I feel it’s time to unleash my Christmas party survival guide!
Firstly I must admit that I usually despair over parties and events, I don’t feel like I am fashionable enough for most things and often hide behind those that dress to the nines and get those perfect cat flicks with their eyeliner. But this year George at Asda have partly saved my bacon with this A-M-A-Z-I-N-G party dress (alas they cannot provide the perfect cat flick). It’s not my usual style at all and I daringly picked it from the website without really looking, but man I am in love, as is Mr W so I’m very sure it’ll get a few more outings over the course of Christmas!

The dress I chose is this wonderful Stolen Heart Floral Lace Skater Dress*, I thought the gold would be Christmassy without being OTT. I teamed it with my old faithful black tights, as it’s bound to be raining on the night of the party and then these wonderful platform shoes*. I’ve never worn platforms before, but these are so comfy and really easy to walk in, much better than a pointed/thin heel! Lastly, for a huge touch of Christmas I have added my newest and most favouritest necklace from Blackheart Creatives, this Scandi star looks perfect with this outfit and adds a touch of Christmas without resorting to tinsel! Overall I am super chuffed with my outfit and I feel completely ready for partying this Christmas season.
So let me share with you my most vital of Christmas Party Survival Tips to make sure you have a wonderful party season too:
- Stick to what you know, that fancy welcome cocktail may look amazeballs, but it could be mixer-less and kick you in the face with it’s sheer volume of booze. I have fallen foul of this and my drunken mouth can sometimes run away with me, so I stick quite rigidly to what I know best…. GIN!
- Always check what you look like after going to the loo, have you tucked that skirt in, is your make up smudged?! Let’s not have any embarrassing moments here now shall we.
- Be careful on the dancefloor… I’m not a dancer but I’ve seen enough “frogs in blender” moves and slipping over at parties to scare most people away!
- Have fun, chat with colleagues, don’t be afraid to introduce yourself to the people you don’t know well, this can often lead to more fun!
