A Mini Glitzy Haul

glitzy blog

How could I let today pass by without showing you these amazing little pieces that I picked up today?!

Basically, this Tuesday I’m going to be attending a rather posh awards night in London with my colleagues with our fingers tightly crossed that we pick up an award or two!! With awards nights come the fun part of planning your outfit of course! So I’ve opted for a maxi dress with a base colour of white, with orangey/blue flower print detail (I’m hoping to put together a little blog post next weekend to show you what I mean – or keep an eye on my Twitter page in case I post a selfie!). It’s a beautiful dress with an elasticated waist – you know, for all that lush food and way too much alcohol which I know will be consumed…

To dress up my maxi dress I’ve decided to go for gold toned accessories to match the gold tone of the heel part of my wedges. So I popped along to both the Centre:MK and Intu shopping centre in Milton Keynes today to grab these rather last minute accessories and I am *so* pleased with them!!

The bag…this is the Oyster Glitter Box Clutch from Wallis (love the name!), and was a steal at just £12.60 (down from £18). It’s the perfect size to fit your essentials, not too big and not too small – perfect to fit partial amounts of the kitchen sink like I usually do…

The bangles…these are the Gold Flower Bangles from New Look, again another bargain in the sale at just £2. I think these are so beautiful, they have the structure I was looking for in a bracelet for this outfit, but with a lovely feminine twist – love it!

And finally, the ring…can we just take a moment to appreciate this ring?! I love it! (Can you tell I’m loving everything?) I can’t remember the last time I bought a statement ring, or even wore any ring for that matter… But if you can’t make a statement on an awards night, when can you? This ring is from Topshop, although I can’t find it online to share a link with you. Again this was another bargain at just £3!

So there we have it, my mini glitzy Sunday haul ready to party on Tuesday!

I will try to get a little post together or at least a couple of tweets on what I’ll be wearing on the night. So find me on Twitter (@Amanda_Alston) if you want to see my full outfit!
