Whether you jump at the chance to get dressed up or would rather spend your evenings curled up on the sofa, there’s no getting away from the fact that party season is here. We must admit, we are pretty excited.
This year might look a little different restriction depending but we are super excited to prepare for all the festivities none the less. Whether it’s a Christmas work party, dinner with family or simply partying the night away, with your mates, we’ve got you sorted. It’s also a great opportunity to really glam up, because it’s the one time of the year when ‘less does not mean more’, right?
Even better, by shopping at Barnardo’s you’re preventing textiles from ending up in landfill and looking glam while you do it!
The festive season is just around the corner, so be sure to out-sparkle the crowd this Christmas. From velvet to glitter and embracing the disco feels, go bold this party season. Here we take you through some of our favourite party trends to see-and-be-seen in this Christmas.
Hi everyone, we are Charlotte (the Titch) and Emma (the Giant). We live in Manchester and run our own blog ‘The Giant, The Titch and The Wardrobe’. We both absolutely adore shopping at charity shops and Barnardo’s is definitely a favourite, so we can’t wait to start writing more for Barnardo’s and showing off our best buys.
With Christmas just around the corner, what better excuse do we need to update the old wardrobe with sparkles, sequin, glitz and glam? It’s the perfect opportunity to dress OTT, shine bright and stand out. With high street stores selling out of their Christmas must-haves fast, the best way to avoid the horror of being dressed the same as someone else is to get rummaging in your local charity shop for that perfect unique party show-stopper.
As most of you know by now, I love a bit of pink to make the boys wink! This stunning Topshop number was one of my best buys at only £10. The beading detail gives it instant character, meaning you don’t need to worry about adding lots of accessories to it, as the dress speaks for itself. The colour is fun and flirty and the shape of the dress will hide a multitude of sins from all the festive food we will no doubt be indulging in!
