One of the many things that fills me with glee when it comes to the approach of the festive season is that it’s the perfect excuse to find a new party dress. I may not get to attend an annual office bash these days but I sure as hell can usually find somewhere to wear a sequin or two a some point in December.
I have on many occasions plundered the rails of Coast when shopping for parties and weddings but admit that I’ve sometimes worried that someone else is going to turn up wearing the same thing. So far that ultimate of frock horrors hasn’t happened I’m glad to say. So when I heard they were bringing out a small but perfectly formed collection of Limited Edition party dresses for the Holiday season I was keen to see what was on offer. If you like the look of these pictures, you should see the dresses up close and personal – they are gorgeous.
My personal favourite and the one I suspect will be an instant sell-out is the Perla sequin wrap dress. This dress is perfect for slender and curvy girls and both twenty and forty forty-somethings alike. Case in point… the Coast model and er… me! I was very lucky to get my hands on a Perla dress ahead of the launch so I decided to take her for a spin around a wonderful local hotel, Careys Manor. A grand dress deserves a grand setting after all!
I was extremely impressed with the quality and finish of the dress – past experience has taught me you have to be so careful with sequin pieces. The less you spend, the more sparkle you shed is the general rule of thumb.
