Party wear… the low down
We are on the cusp of the the busiest Christmas party week, so if you haven’t sorted your party wear out yet, it’s time to get with the programme.

Throw on a faux fur in an eye grabbing animal print to keep you warm whilst you teeter from party to after party in your shoegasmic heels.
