#VeryOnTrend: A/W Party Edit & Fashion Show

I'm not usually one for dressing up fully. I'll often feel to dressy and pop on my new beloved Puma Suede's, a pair of flat boots or some flatforms to bring an outfit from being super dressy to that little bit less but when picking this outfit from, something changed and I fancied a little bit of a change and a little bit more glitz and glamour.

As you can see in the pictures above I went for a virtually all black outfit with a hint of navy blue and not forgetting the obligatory glitter... I fell in love with this River Island via. High Neck Glitter Panelled dress* as soon as I saw it. It's just so me! I shortened it a little though as I'm just a tad  shorter than the model wearing it on the site. I added the River Island via. Faux Fur Collar Jacket in Black* and this gorgeous Navy Velvet Chain Shoulder Bag with Gold Detailing* and finished it off with a pair of heeled black ankle boots, I went for my faves in my stash and of course, they're the Topshop Allegras (firm favourites in my wardrobe since I started this blog!). A super simple outfit, but the glitter on the dress makes it that bit fancier. Perfect for the Christmas party season and I just know I'll get so much wear out of it. 

So you're probably wondering what this post is actually all about? I was invited down to the #veryontrend event with Cosmopolitan Magazine and and of course I wouldn't turn down to see Very's Party Edit... and Sam Faiers new collection. After a rifle through the rails of beautiful sequinned dresses and super sleek playsuits with the lovely Ashleigh (who actually took my pictures, so thanks lovely!) we sat down to the watch the catwalk show of all of the pieces in action. Here are a few of my picks... Can I own them all please? 

The collection is so dreamy! All of the black items I just need... Love doesn't quite cover it. It was a lovely evening with so many lovely ladies and I now have a wish list the length of my arm. Christmas maybe?! 

What's your favourite piece?
