Beautiful, glamorous long dresses for Christmas

It's that time of year when the allure of pre-Christmas glamour makes us want to go out and splash a whole heap of cash on a statement dress that will make onlookers gasp.

I can't even keep track of how many dazzling dresses I've had stashed in my wardrobe over the years, from the full length gold sequin stunner to the bright pink 1960s mini dress with so much embellishment it weighs almost as much as me.

It's still October, but I'm already coveting this beautiful maxi evening dress by Darling, an elegant gown that reflects the catwalks of Nina Ricci and Alexander McQueen: vintage inspired, embellished in the right places and with a smattering of gold / silver glamour.

This statement style is perfect for the season; the Saphia maxi is available in sequin or silver for £225., £225

New London course in fashion blogging and journalism

Here's something new (and a bit of shameless self promotion): I'm running a new one day workshop in February next year on fashion blogging and journalism.

As well as the fact it's running during fashion week, I'm also super excited because it's going to give a fresh perspective on the transferable skills involved in fashion blogging and fashion journalism.

It's also suitable for complete beginners, so I'm really hoping to meet some fresh-faced fashionistas, keen to make their way in the fashion world.

Roll on February!
