Planning your party outfit is one of the most fun parts of Christmas season - all the more so if you’re making it yourself! We’ve rounded up just a few of the ideas that we’ve had for our virtual Christmas party - new makes, up-cycles, and DIY embellishments galore. Which to choose!
When it comes to sourcing sparkle, Laura Stanford knows her stuff.
