Walking into a christmas party in October felt a little early, but it didn’t distract from the excitement I felt; greeted by a glass of mulled wine & a selection of mouthwatering (huge!) slices of cake. And the reason for the indulgence – the wonderful Christmas collections from Very.co.uk
Featuring collections by Love Label, Fearne Cotton
, Holly Willoughby
, and an all-new collection for the season from X-Factor runner up Diana Vickers. Each had their own individual style and I particularly loved the sequin pieces in Fearne’s range. Holly’s oozed feminine glamour to flatter the voluptuous womanly figure. Those searching for their inner princess would love Diana’s collection; pretty, girly dresses with satin and lace. The shoes to match shouted ‘statement’ – killer heels with comfortable platforms and cushioned soles, some covered in eye-catching shimmer, others subtly made room for the statement to come from the dresses.

For us to really get a feel for the collections, the lovely Very team had organised our own individual photo shoot. Choosing a red glitzy number from Fearne’s collection teamed with sequinned black clutch and black strappy 5 inch’ers, I had my hair curled and make up touched up. Feeling quite like a model, I was certainly ready for my close-up! Relaxing into the shoot, I found myself starting to enjoy some of the limelight; jumping around and kicking my heels out, I felt ‘very’ glamorous (and lucky me got to keep the red dress – coming soon to a Christmas party near you!)
