Christmas party goodies under £50 (and a wee special offer)

Ooh readers. Party time is a-coming. And when silly season is thrust upon me, I love to have as many party dresses and party pieces at my disposal as humanly possible (you’re not surprised, right?)

Sadly, I have a budget (doesn’t everybody?) and I’m always on the sniff for a bargain. A happy turn of events then, that I’ve got the low-down on two affordable pre-Christmas collections…

The first launched on Monday and is by bargainous brand Bonprix.

It is the label’s first ever capsule collection of party wear and nothing in the selection of heels, dresses and faux fur accessories costs more than £49.95. If that’s not enough excitement for you, there’s a 20% discount and free delivery on the entire 2011 Party Collection for all new customers using code 15467.

Fill your boots with this shebang (including the top and panel leggings in the photo above – both £14.95) until January 2012.

Faux fur cape £34.95,
The LBD (“little Bonprix dress”) is just £9.95

And if you fancy some accessories to go with, the second collection comes courtesy of Stylistpick – a new online personalised styling and shopping service where you become a member and then get to shop for a personalised selection of shoes, bags and jewellery, with every item priced at £39.95.

My curiosity was piqued by two of the rings (below) in the Louise Roe AW11 capsule accessories collection, exclusive to Stylistpick, that launched this week. Obvs you have to join up to get these rings at the special price (worth reading through the FAQs if you’re interested), but it does sound like quite an interesting concept.

If anybody decides to join up, let me know what it’s like!
