Happy Ballet News Year
So, the tree has been recycled and the decorations packed away for another year. The glitter, the glamour and the gorgeousness of 2012 awaits…..
Here on Ballet News you’ll find treat after treat to whizz you through January and beyond. Let’s start with something to keep you warm. It’s been properly windy this week. Storm-force winds. If you’re going to be blown all the way to Oz you don’t want to arrive unprepared! There isn’t much that will keep me away from pink, or pom poms for that matter, and why would anyone want to ? Take a look at this snuggly faux fur pom pom duffle coat from TopShop if you need convincing !
At £95, the duffle coat is an above the knee pink hooded faux fur coat with toggle fastenings and pom pom detail at the collar. Length: 76cm/30inches. 67% Modacrylic,17% Polyester,16% Acrylic. Dry Clean Only.
What to wear underneath ? Well, I’ve been quite taken by this lace skater skirt dress, again from TopShop.
It’s £58.00, actually coral, and the Lace Racer Cute Skirted Dress is 66% Cotton,34% Polyester. Machine washable.
To set all this off, how about a colourful pair of turquoise peep-toe shoes from River Island at £40.00? The turquoise peep toe shoes have a contrasting purple ankle strap and pink heel, heel height 14cm.
I can’t resist including this raspberry UGG boot – though unfortunately it’s for children only ! UGG Australia Kids T Classic-I Boot is priced from £109.99.
And finally, one of my favourite make-up artists, Lisa Eldridge, came up with a simply stunning party look, which is so pretty it’s a perfect match for the items I’ve chosen here. Lisa has made a video to show all of the items she’s wearing in this look – and just wait until you reach the mascara stage and see the transformation ! It’s an easy look that suits a lot of people and isn’t hard to apply.
I will say that it’s been hard sourcing the items as they are very popular, but persevere because it’s totally worth it. At the bottom of the video you’ll see that Lisa has listed all of the items and where you can buy them. As I’ve said, you will need to shop around quite a lot because the items are now quite scarce, but Chanel told me this week that they were hoping for more stock from January 10th so I have everything crossed that you’ll be lucky! This is a look that doesn’t need to be saved for special occasions!
And remember…. keep sparkling ! It may be January but YOU are a STAR!
