The dreaded but beloved Christmas do!

I was never sure if I loved Christmas work do's or hated them. The food was always rubbish, the music ridiculously pants and at some point in the evening someone is going to offend their boss. But there's something a little exciting about showing people you can actually look nice when you aren't wearing your polyester supermarket uniform and at least there's always alcohol. Well - as it turns out I must like Christmas work dos because this is my first year self employed and I'm a bit sad at the thought of not having one to go to. I am going to visit my old workmates for drinks though, so am trying to decide on what to wear! Or I could just throw a party for myself and my staff of 2! 

I've been nosying for a good clutch bag as it seems to be the thing I completely forget about until it's already 10 minutes past when I was supposed to be there 10 minutes ago and I am trying to decide which bag will fit in the 4 of my lipsticks that I can't decide between. Anyway, here are a few picks I settled on! I think i'll go for the sparkly one, or should I choose the sparkly one? Who am I kidding? We all know I will just play it safe and pick the sparkly one.

See more designer bags like these from House of Fraser.

I feel the need to finish this post with my most favouite work do outfit. My beloved Pearl Lowe Peacocks dress, so elegant...even at 4am covered in sick (don't ever let anyone make you do Jagerbombs when you clearly were past it two hours ago).

Party dress. .

p.s. I have no idea what my face is doing here either, concentrate on the dress!


  1. YAY <3 Claire outfit post! You always look BEAUTIFUL especially in lace! (So much so I think your blog posts and photos inspired my love of lace!)

    Urgh, I'd dreading everything staff Christmas related because I barely know anyone.. I have a secret santa to do and I know we're having a staff party.

    My fav bag is definitely the Ted Baker one :)

  2. I'm really not a fan of staff parties, I'm not planning one for my staff this year because it's always a chore, nobody ever *really* wants to be there, and it's generally more hassle than it's worth.
    Love that dress, you look fab in it!

  3. I love all the glitter clutches, I've found some on ebay that are ridiculously cheap.
