Casino Christmas Wishlist

What to wear to a Christmas casino night
I’ve spoken recently a little bit about how I was having a bit of a blog identity crisis since I would only post if I had suitable pictures or something to say that was, to coin a popular blog phrase, “blogworthy.” Since realising that I don’t have to have the best things to say or show to you all the time, I’m feeling a lot happier with my blog, hence the huge stack of posts waiting! A lot of my free time at the moment has been taken up writing all sorts of different posts, and I’m excited to share them.
So here’s the first of a new thing I’ve wanted to do for a while: a wishlist! I know, not groundbreaking, but I’ve always read them on other people’s blogs and really enjoyed picking up tips about what people with similar style to me are loving right now, but thought that they wouldn’t go down well on my blog. Since changing my ideas about blogging, I’ve decided that it doesn’t matter whether it “goes down well” or not – it’s my blog and I like these dresses.
Our work Christmas party is Casino themed again this year (last year’s here), at the Old Swan hotel in Harrogate again, so even though I chose and bought my dress about two months ago (yep, organised for once!), it hasn’t stopped me from scanning the shops for casino/Christmas-themed attire anyway. I’ve only ever once been to a casino before, which was actually a hotel we stayed at for one night, the River Rock Casino (which is pretty amazing) in Vancouver; my dad gave us like $10 each to spend and that was that (although my sister wanted more!), and he was the only one to win anything (so of course, he bought us tea that night!). I just know I’d end up spending all my savings, so for now, the pretend money at the casino-themed night will do for me.
I’m still kind of confused by all the rules surrounding the different games in casinos so I’ve been reading up on glossaries. We got our menu for the Christmas Party the other day too, so it feels like it’s not that far away now! There wasn’t a lot of “casino” fashion going on at the River Rock. Sadly, most people were just stopping in on their way to dinner or seemed like they’d been there for days! So I didn’t really get a chance to dress up for that, although I did do my best. Here are my picks of what’s out there at the moment for a fancy night out at the casino or a glitzy Christmas party:

Okay, little confession – I may have already bought this dress, and I may be wearing it today. But it is totally dressed down with a slouchy red cardigan and flats, but with heels and a glitzy necklace, it’s sleek and elegant for a Casino night.

I do love a bit of embellishment on a dress, although I’ve never owned one quite as embellished as this – I feel like it would be a bit heavy?! But nevertheless, imagine rocking up in that to a Casino – you’d look and feel awesome.

I’ll let you in on a little secret – the Christmas party dress I’ve chosen has some similarities to this one – red and sequins, but I’ll say no more! I think red is really the colour of both Casinos and Christmas, and you can’t go wrong with sparkles.

And finally, a super swishy gorgeous dress. Green is another of my favourite Christmas colours, it’s got sparkles and embellishment on the neckline, and it’s full length and elegant.
Have you got a Christmas party function you’re going to this year and is there a theme? What are you planning to wear?

    I’ve been loving embellished dresses so much recently.I haven’t bought one though because I have nowhere to wear one.

    Totally feel that “Not blogworthy enough” comment…
    I feel that way all the time, trying to come up with the perfect-very-best-post-that-nobody-else-has-written-and-everybody-will-want-to-read.
    It’s exhausting to try to strive that high!
    I’m finally beginning to get over that and experience some of that freedom you’re talking about. It’s wonderful, and i’m now looking forward to the blogging journey ahead. 🙂

    All of these dresses are gorgeous! But the Red Bardot Sequin Dress is a pure stunner–definitely my favorite! I really enjoyed looking at your selection 🙂
