Shimmer and Shine

Who doesn't love a little sparkle at this time of year?! With Christmas parties fast approaching it's the perfect time to invest in a glitzy sequin dress. 

The trend is ever popular on the red carpet with stars dazzling in sequin gowns


Carrie Underwood chose a shimmering Reem Arca sequin dress for the red carpet as host of the Country Music Awards earlier this month. 

Zoe Saldana looked stunning in a green sequin Elie Saab gown at the Bambi Awards in Germany.

Sandra Bullock was recently snapped in a sparkling All Saints sequin mini attending a charity gala in L.A.

I love all the sparkle in the shops at the moment! A sequin dress is perfect for keeping you looking glamorous throughout the festive season. Wear with a blazer and heels like Sandra for an instant stylish party look! 


If you're not sure about wearing an all over sequined dress a sparkly cover up is the perfect accessory to update your favourite party dress and give it a glamorous new look!


Are you looking for a party outfit? 
Will you be sparking on the dance floor this Christmas?



  1. Zoe Saldana looks amazing. I've got a sequin skirt ready for Xmas day, not sure how long I will last in it though!!x

  2. I love the thought of a sequin party dress! This time of year you can get away with it!

  3. I can't dance, but I wanna sparkle! I love the two dresses with the sweetheart necklines and the one with the petepan collar! JUST too darn cute!

  4. I don't think Zoe Saldana can do any wrong! She's so gorgeous and leggy.

    I really like sweaters with a bit of glitter too. Not too much in your face but definitely keeping up in spirit.

  5. I love all three of the celebrity outfits. Dress number 8 is my favourite :-)
