I am really excited to talk about PARTIES here on I Am Serene L today, as December is the month of the parties here in London, and around the world with my friends celebrating more birthdays than any other month, Christmas parties at work & with friends and the New Years parties coming up!
I wanted to share with you all my outfit and accessories that I recently wore to my friends 25th Birthday that had a Bond Girl & Bond Guy theme! We were asked to dress up in Long evening dresses & I jumping for joy trying on fabulous dresses and accessories for this theme!
I’ve always admired the evening gown selection at TK Maxx! They have a little section amongst the Label lounge areas that receives some of the most prettiest ball gowns / evening dresses I’ve seen! Ranging from sparkly numbers, to sophisticated black & red dresses to very intricately embellished numbers! You also get the added bonus of everything having a good price tag as TK Maxx offers discounted prices on their products!
So immediately a nude with mesh insert dress that featured silver metallic studs, and a longline black skirt caught my attention and I just fell in love! The cut on the shoulder and the little mesh inserts on the dress were just perfect for my body, it created some elongation in my shoulder region & the little mesh inserts revealed sections of my body without it looking trashy!
I kept in the theme of Nude/ Beige and decided to team my look with a Nude patent clutch bag from Monsoon / Accessorize & a pair of matte / light gold pair of pumps from New Look! I will tell you I haven’t loved a pair of heels (in terms of comfortability) as much as I loved these for a while! Even though towards the end of the night (from all the dancing) my feet just were in sooooo much pain! ahh the struggles of wearing heels!
The actual Birthday party was spectacular as well, the party was hosted at the Corinthia Hotel, in London! In a perfect location being a 6 minute walk away from Trafalgar square. The ballroom was decorated with purple lighting and beautifully decorated tables that featured red roses & name placement cards and boxes of chocolates!
We were treated to a lovely 3 course dinner & then a juggler show & there was even a photo booth, then of course some well needed dancing on the fairy light lighten dance floor!
