Friday Frock: What to Wear for The Biggest Night of Your Year

Today I’m signing off for Christmas, not before sorting out one last sartorial dilemma however! Florence Finds will be back to normal service on 2nd January and in fact I have something rather special to brighten up your January. In the meantime I’m making no promises and will blog as and when I have something to share, so keep your eyes on Twitter, Facebook or check back here when you have a bit of down time. You can also follow my Christmas on Instagram. (This is a web link if you don’t have Instagram on your phone.)

When I wrote the title to this post, I was alluding to your New Years Eve dress. If you’ve got somewhere to go, then your frock has to be something special for this most celebratory of nights. In fact, my biggest party of the year was a 30th Birthday for one of my good friends. A super stylish lady, I wanted to make an effort and found the perfect dress in the ASOS sale.


La la Lashes // Midi Dress with Holographic Embellishment (On Sale at £72 from £120!) // Faux Panther Clutch Bag // Shoes, Nine West (old) // Nails: ESSIE ‘Leading Lady’.

I had swapped my usual Zara clutch with my Mum to complete a wedding outfit for her the same weekend and used this Faux Panther Clutch of hers instead. I loved the slightly wild look to the decadent muscular panther clasp with subtle sparkle collar detail.

Of course, aside from the sparkle, the talking point of this dress is the back, or rather lack of. (And before anyone asks… I went without.) Teamed with a vampy blood red lip and Christmas nails, I felt super glamorous.

Of course, no party is complete without glowsticks and eye lashes. These lashes are by La la Lashes – the lash itself is quite a subtle effect but they are dusted in fine glitter and as a result when the light catches your lashes and with every blink, you get a subtle sparkle – they’re a cheap way of upping the glam factor if you don’t have a new dress to wear 🙂

Happy weekend readers!
