I was inspired by my recent love of Ben Whishaw and his appearances in the latest Bond film and The Hour to have a sophisticated games night in with the girls. We're thinking glamour, cocktails, fancy nibbles and playing card games like poker. I'm sure we will also play Jenga and Dreamphone while listening to N*Sync because we're pretty cool like that ;) Just because we are staying in it doesn't mean we wont be getting dolled up. Some of my friends have kids and don't get to dress up as much as they would like because practicality rules when you're doing the school run with two toddlers so we are on the hunt for super glam and fun outfits for the night,
All of the following items are available from ASOS and fit in with my games night/glam theme:
This Lady Luck jumper fits in perfectly with my theme, is comfy and not too expensive. I could jazz this up with some red heels and lippy for a more night time feel.
This sequin skater dress is gorgeous and I would never be able to wear this to the clubs I go to on a night out. (I'm not very sophisticated and prefer dingy rock clubs) so the party would be a perfect excuse to get something super pretty and not worry about people spilling drinks on it.
I love the colour if this sequin dress and the Vivienne Westwood style drape at the front. This could easily be worn again with some black tights and a cardi on a night out in town.
Again, this baroque dress is super glam which is perfect for the party but I'm sure I would wear it again and avoid spending a fortune on a dress I could only wear once.
Last up is this perfect dress for a poker diva from Sugarhill Boutique dress via ASOS. Not only is the print fun but the dress is in the sale for £22, bargain! This would be comfy, I could wear it again and fits in with the nights theme.
Even though I plan on getting dressed up I will be packing my pajamas and a hoody because I'm sure after a few drinks and loads of food we will be under a duvet on the sofa watching DVDs.
