End Year Glamour Inspiration

The end of the year is fast approaching and that means only one thing: Parties!

Whether you’re going to a more formal end year work party or a casual braai with your friends, if you’re anything like me, you’re probably wondering what on Earth to wear!

Fear not! I’ve paired up with my dear make-up artist friend, Melissa, of Melissa’s Make-up to give you some fab head-to-toe inspiration for the festive season that won’t break the bank.  Head over to Melissa’s blog to get the hints and how-to’s to perfectly recreate this glamorous smokey eye look yourself.

Year End Work Party

The outfit you choose will depend on how formal the party is (see your invitation for a dress code)  but for a semi-formal party, we love the look below:

Casual Year End Braai with Friends

For a braai with the mates you want to go for a more casual and relaxed look that still has a touch of glam. Is the little coral dress from Mr Price not fabulous?

I basically want both outfits and might head to the shops soon to make them mine! See what I wore to Steven’s year-end function (quite a formal affair) on Instagram.
