Counting down – How to shop the perfect Christmas outfit with Carnaby !

Finding the perfect party outfit for Christmas is always a priority at this time of year , so if you’re stuck for ideas , read on .

From show-stopping gowns at AQ/AQ to sophisticated daywear at Dahlia or Monki , plus the finishing touches that will give your celebrations that all-important festive sparkle – Carnaby  is my absolute favourite shopping destination .

So when they invited me to find the perfect party-ready ensemble , I accepted right away – the challenge was to find my outfit for the upcoming festive season in one hour , with a budget of £300 .

A timeless wardrobe staple – the little black jumpsuit , found on Carnaby Street at Monki (£45) was the statement piece that I’ve used as a starting point to build up my outfit .

High-shine details sparkled on the Autumn/Winter catwalks , so I wanted to capture a little festive magic with this precious sparkly kimono from Monki (£30) – perfectly timed for the party season .

Completed my look with a fab floral coat from Dahlia (£70) , a pair of nude heels from Office (£65) – I love the sexy cut-away side detail that elongates my legs , a pair of statement earrings (£15) and a handbag (£45) , both from Dahlia .

And to celebrate the upcoming festive season , Carnaby  has teamed with Grazia and will be throwing a huge Christmas shopping party on Thursday 13 November from 5-9pm and you’re all invited !!
