OOTD: Print Clash (Work Christmas Party)

Hello all. Oh how I love this outfit. I was debating as to what to wear for my work's Christmas Party and I got a little creative. The top half of this outfit is actually a playsuit which Mike bought me two years ago which I have only worn twice and I thought it needed more air play. Wearing it on it's own and even with tights didn't seem to cut the mustard so I decided to add the skirt, accessories and big hair to spice it up a bit. Yes, THE HAIR. I'm sure you have noticed in my last few posts that there is a bit of a change in the name of my blazing red streak. I am always changing my hair up so that's where my little moment of colour application came in and I love it. In this look I decided to blow dry, straighten and added flexi rods to acquire this big hair. I love it. Enjoy :-)

My hair was not shaped properly for the photos but hey ho the merry O. Enjoy :-)

Well yes I love creating new looks and this is why I have chosen to enter the amazing competition brought to us by New Look. As the name suggests it is a competition based on styling the ideal  dress for your body shape. My Body shape - The Straight Up and Down. Yes that's me, flat chested and boyish/athletic figure. The dress chosen for the ensemble is called the Chi Chi Black Ruffle Peplum Prom Dress. Yes it's a mouthful but so delightful to the eye. In my opinion when styling my shape it is all a matter of creating the feminine shape which means adding curves. The ruffled peplum detail creates just enough of that feminine curve and there's no need to worry about the flat chest either, as the ruched, padded, exaggerated sweetheart neckline sorts that right out. Now one thing my friends and family will say is "Dionne loves colour" and yes I had to add some in ther…
