Christmas LBDs – Fashion Detective style

I’m supposed to be out at my first “office party” for 10 years tonight. Sadly, a sick child and a dodgy back (God, I’m old) have conspired against me. Maybe next year?

In any case, this gives me chance to browse some cute party dresses – I’ll be needing one for a family feast on Sunday. I’m quite fancying an LBD, particularly as I’m spending Christmas abroad in a variety of brightly coloured SS13 pieces (watch this space). But it’ll need some embellishment to pass my party dress test.

The boohoo Boutique jewel collar brocade dress above is pretty darn groovy for starters, or how about one of these…?
