As you know, I regularly blog about thrifty fashion and DIY fashion hacks on the Oxfam fashion blog. Oxfam has asked me to share my favourite party dress with all their wonderful readers and I thought I’d show you it too:
My party dress was bought for me by thrifty mother who spotted it in our local Oxfam shop. I love the loose style and above-the-knee length, and the silver pleated fabric is perfect for the party season. I feel like Carrie wearing her blue Halston layered dress in the second Sex and the City film when I wear this dress! For parties and nights out I wear it with a black blazer with sequined lapels and cuffs which I found at a carboot sale. I wore it for a couple of Christmas parties last year and I kept warm by wearing black thermal tights underneath! I finish off the outfit with sparkly black heels (from another charity shop!) and I’ve also worn this dress to a summer wedding with a bright pink blazer and wedge sandals instead. It was a great charity-shop find and I’m sure I’ll be wearing again for festive parties this year!
Please check out the party dress article on Oxfam Fashion Blog and have a look at all the other Oxfam bloggers’ festive party outfits too – it’s great to get ideas for cheap party outfits and it’s amazing what gorgeous fashion looks these thrifty bloggers have been able to create on a charity-shop budget! And let me know if you’ve found any party bargains in a charity shop recently – I’d love to see your photos so please tweet me @cassiefairy :)
