It's officially party season! Last Saturday, I kicked things off with the Singapore Society's Annual Dinner & Dance held at the Palace Hotel here in Manchester. The games and photo booth were very Harry Potter-inspired, and the event was aptly named the Yule Ball.
Having been on the organising committee last year for the D&D, I was really excited to sit back and relax this time round, and I had a really great time! (Kudos to the outgoing committee, you guys did a great job.) My friends and I took multiple turns at the photo booth, plus lots of group shots with the various Christmas trees scattered around the hotel.
I went with red and gold for my very posh look (very Gryffindor, if I do say so myself). This Jarlo dress immediately caught my eye on the Asos site, and since it was so outstanding, I kept my make-up simple and swept my hair to the side for some old Hollywood glam. My accessories were also discreetly sparkly for that party vibe. I especially loved how my pearl choker from Dorothy Perkins, received at the Fashionchick blogger event, gave my outfit that extra retro 'oomph' - I received loads of compliments on it!
I had loads of trouble walking in my dress because of the train, and it certainly didn't help that it was raining - I had to struggle with an umbrella while holding up my train! But thankfully my outfit stayed pristine, phew.
I have loads of events to attend this upcoming week, I can't wait to keep dressing up, but I have to say this is my absolutely fave party outfit I've got planned. x
