Gingham & Lace

lace cardigan, lace camisole and gingham tiered skirt with lace socks and heels

These days I'm not the biggest fan of cocktail dresses... They're beautiful, but they're expensive, impractical and I feel like you can wear them only a few times, so I've taken to creating my own festive party looks using separates and I find it's a lot more fun. Everything in this look except the skirt and socks was already in my wardrobe. This mix-n-match way of dressing for special occasions means I get a lot more wear out of the pieces I buy. Don't get me wrong... I do love a versatile black cocktail dress that I can style up in a bunch of different ways, but dressing for a party with separates means I don't have to buy 5 new frocks for the festive party season this year. Instead I can focus on buying pieces I can wear either dressed up or in a more casual way later and fun accessories like these cute little lace anklet socks by Jonathan Aston. (c/o Jonathan Aston London) It's my way of shopping smarter, not harder for the Christmas party season.
