Last Friday, after the most hectic week at university, brought the Christmas party. My boyfriend’s work were hosting a ball, and yes the thought of ball made me go bananas trying to find a suitable dress at the fear of being either under or over dressed. I finally made a choice on this long maxi dress from Missguided, always a winner for dresses that site. I chose this coral Koemi Maxi Dress with a split in the leg (hello Angelina Jolie) and one shoulder. 

I was pleasantly surprised how much I liked this dress, I had already got one from Ted Baker, however I decided it wasn’t ball gown enough so I felt a long one was the way to go.  You can find all of the Koemi style dresses here [LINK] however this exact dress was in the sale so is no longer available. 
I teamed this with my trusty nude strappy heels which are my go to when I need a shoe to suit all needs and these went perfectly with the dress. 
For nails and toes I went back to again, my favourite trusty nail polish of this season which is Bourjois’ new Grey To Meet You. 

I was sure to go for a smokey eye then added lots of glitter to sparkle it up, it was a Christmas ball after all and lots of bronzer to highlight the side of my face that didn’t have the hair swept too. My lipstick of choice was Shy Girl by Mac. 

Do you have any balls or christmas parties coming up? Warning. Free bars equal wine hangovers.
