This is part 2 of my simple work-to-party look.
All you need to do is pop to the ladies room, and 5 minutes later you can be ready to party!
I started the day like this...
See the original post here, and find out the story behind this little vintage gem.
Getting ready to party is so easy.
Simply remove the blouse (or whatever you choose to wear) and apply some luminous body lotion to arms, decolletage and shoulders.
This can give the skin a subtle glow.
My cream was a sample sachet from inside a magazine, and had a lovely scent.
Samples and testers are great to keep in your bag for moments like this one!
Freshening up makeup only takes a few moments, and applying lipstick is the perfect "party ready" touch.
I always need a layer of warmth, so a fluffy cardigan over my shoulders is essential.
Changing my tights from the cosy wool pair to these fun ones (with gold lurex thread) adds a little 'something' to this otherwise plain outfit.
My favourite party shoes are also velvet, and have large jewelled bows, adding more sparkle and fun!
This beautiful velvet dress has it's own little surprise too!
An unusual lace-up back.
Very subtle, but very effective.
Simple gold earrings, and a beaded clutch, finishes things off nicely.
