Festive party look - JD Williams/Joanna Hope Blurred Spot Jersey Dress

spotty black wrap dress JD Williams

Dress: c/o JD Williams - Necklace: gift from Sarah - Bag: old from Miss Selfridge

If I was going to design my ideal dress it would be sit just below the knee (why is everything so short now at the moment?), it would have sleeves and I wouldn't need to wear a slip under it to be more modest. This Joanna Hope dress ticks all my boxes, hurrah!  I love anything polka dot but this is a bit more sophisticated than my usual navy and white ditzy polka dot print of choice and I'd like to think the gathering on the side highlights my waist without the need to wear a belt. It's available in sizes 12-32 from JD Williams which is great news, nothing worse than finding a dress you like and finding out it only goes up to a size 14. JD Williams have got some lovely partywear this season, I've got my eye on a navy blue velvet dress from their collection.

I've been wearing this dress to work with flats but I'll be wearing it to end of term drinks paired with some heels and a clutch, it makes the perfect work to night out transition dress.

Both the necklace and clutch are old favourites that I've dug out to complete the look.

I love this bag and it has been so well used. It can be a clutch or shoulder bag, very versatile and the neutral colours match most things.

What will you be wearing for all your family occasions and Christmas parties this year?
