This year's green sequin dress

It's that time of year again - and, as always, I find myself drawn to a very specific party dress: the green sequin number.

Red hair, green do the math. Green glitter is the way forward.

This year I've picked the catwalk-inspired statement sequin dress by Quiz - which is a snip at £39 (you don't want to spend oodles on a dress like this, trust me - it's something of a one or two hit wonder).

Wear with sheer black tights and simple black stillettoes for grown up glitz - or team with thicker tights and the flat knee high suede boots from H&M I have become happily obsessed with, for a more grungy, rock-chic effect.

Ultimate pink checked jacket

Oh kiddles - I'm not dead!

I've been a) on holiday and b) rushed off my feet. And a little bit I'll again, but lets not dwell on that.

Anyways, check out the best coat in the world, spotted in the window of Galeries Lafayette in Nice.

I believe it's by Manoush, but if you know different, do tell...

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

Channelling Cilla Black fashion: 60s knit in olive green

If I will go catching up on shows set in the sixties about Liverpudlian fashion icons like Cilla Black, it will cost me money...
