Perfect party dresses from Miss Selfridge!

Ahh... good old Miss Selfridge, i remember the day that i bought my first real party dress, i was 16 and it was from Miss Selfridge on Oxford Street, i had my mum with me for guidance, and i bought an absolutely gorgeous LBD with spaghetti straps and ruffles at bust, it was so perfect and totally timeless, and i was utterly devastated the day that it happened to get mixed up amongst the other laundry and got shrunk in the wash, so much so that it would have been adequate for a 10 year old girl. i still pine for my beloved Miss Selfridge dress, but stepping back into the present, they have, as usual got a great selection of party dresses this season.

Here are my two favourites of the moment, this very fairy like dress with a touch of 80's reminds me of something that Carrie Bradshaw would wear and is real girly little number, and this sequined dress, is an of the moment trend focused piece, and is even more fabulous in the flesh (or should that be cloth) as i was lucky enough to get a sneak peek at the Arcadia Press preview back in August.

Trend focus - Velvet

Yes ladies, Velvet is well and truely back on the fashion radar, who'd have thought it!

And it was only recently that my good friend Michelle was in fits of laughter as she recalled, the little purple velvet dress that i used to wear out clubbing back in 1995! If only i had of held on to it!

So anyway girl, velvet is back and the velvet body con dress is key this season, just take a look at these dresses...

This black Velvet LBD is £25 from ASOS and this 'look at me' red number is also £25 from and is a great colour for the festive season!

Plus it's a fabric that's going to kind of keep you warm girls, but just make sure that you wear your body shaping tights or knickers under these figure hugging babies, girls!
