Party Dresses @ ASDA George
Can you tell I'm not a natural fashion blogger?! I need to find better poses! 
The festive season is pretty much upon us and christmas and new year parties will be here soon so a staple party outfit is essential. I always struggle to find an outfit that is warm and comfy but flattering, party appropriate and that fits me well which isn't an easy task as I am so petite and a bit picky when it comes to picking dresses! When it comes to party dresses, I always have to find one with sleeves and it has to fall just above my knees as well as it being comfortable and room for a small food baby which will inevitably happen because, food. All the food.

I was very kindly allowed to pick a few christmas party picks from ASDA George and I was very pleasantly surprised at how many gorgeous dresses there were to choose from as well as gorgeous winter essentials. Christmas is all about the sparkle so I chose the *Sequin Shift Dress (£25, Black, UK 8) and it's gorgeous although if you don't like the black, they do have other colours. It hits just above my knee and even though it is a shift dress, it is flattering and relatively comfortable to wear. The quality is much better than I thought it would be for the price and I think it would be a fantastic christmas party or new years eve dress as it is a simple black dress that goes with pretty much everything but because of the sequins it looks more expensive and festive than a regular little black dress.

I also chose the *Faux Fur Collar Coat (£40, Charcoal, UK 8) which I have been wearing constantly since I received it! The coat fits me well, it isn't too long, it goes with causal and formal outfits and I love the faux fur collar - it makes it so cosy. One thing I struggle with when it comes to choosing party or formal dresses, is finding a coat to go with it and I always end up not taking one and freezing to death or choosing a leather jacket that also leaves me cold and shivering. I love the pairing of the dress and coat, I think they are perfect together and it means I can be warm and cosy as it's so annoying when you're trying to enjoy yourself when you are uncomfortable and or cold because of your clothing choices. Last but not least I chose the *3 Pack 40 Denier Tights (£4, Black, Medium) which are such good value.

My main christmas party tip is to choose something that you are going to be comfortable wearing as if your clothes are uncomfortable then your going to look uncomfortable! I also think it's important to plan ahead and pick your outfit beforehand as I think we have all been in those panic situations were you empty your entire wardrobe to find something to wear at the last minute causing even more panicing and then you end up wearing the first thing you picked even though it doesn't fit right. Lastly, you don't have to spend a lot on new party outfits, George at ASDA has a fantastic range of party and winter clothing as well as bags (although they don't seem to have many accessories or jewellery online anymore) and you can add new accessories to give life to an old or staple outfit.

What do you think of the items I chose? If you have any christmas party tips then leave them in the comments below!

  7. Lovely choices! Always amazed at what you can find at Asda. Also good tip, to make sure you feel comfortable, it's always a mistake to wear something that doesn't feel right, something I've done plenty of times prior.
