Party 24/7!

We're all abuzz with Christmas party chatter this week - the ilovegorgeous... girls are getting together for their seasonal soiree and the inevitable cry of 'But I've nothing to wear!' goes up and so we all think about party dresses...

And for your gorgeous girls we know the perfect dress is all-important for those special parties, so we have put together our must-haves for the party season here!

It's not just dresses to think about - how about a cosy and soft gold cardy to keep her warm on a frosty evening; a smart party coat; a little party bag for her sweeties and (chocolate) coins; a bow for her hair and some gold dancing shoes? We've got it covered, from head to toe!

must-haves for this winter's party season...

Spirit of Christmas

ilovegorgeous... will be at the Spirit of Christmas shopping fair at London's Olympia until Sunday 6th November, with a stand of fabulous ilovegorgeous... archive stock at prices reduced up to 50% off original selling price! There are plenty of party dresses, cosy knits and warm winter day wear. We'd love to see you there, come and say hello if you're one of the estimated 33,000 visitors to the fair! Details of how to get there and other exhibitors at the Spirit of Christmas website.

There are so many gorgeous things to look at - but one exhibitor we love is Butterfly Blue. Their scarf and ribbon belts are a real discovery - a really simple concept but so clever and pretty! You get a leather belt with D-rings attached either side and then you can buy pretty Liberty print scarves, silk scarves, or use your own favourite scarf, ribbon, vintage fabric... the combinations are endless. They look great finishing off your jeans, gathering in a waterfall cardy, over a knitted dress or a gilet... genius idea!
 How's your Christmas list coming along? Don't forget to order your gorgeous girl something really special to wear on Christmas day - until 7th November we're offering free gift wrap with orders over £50, a perfect special gift box to delight her on Christmas morning!

And in your stocking? What could be cosier than a cashmere poncho? We love this cabled version with toggles from luxury loungewear brand Charlotte and Co - versatile and beautiful. Here's hoping...

Oh Baby... you're gorgeous!

We're celebrating our beautiful babywear this week... scrumptious miniature versions of some of our most popular dresses and knitwear, as well as sweet ruffled knickers, cosy cashmere blend babygrows, jumpers, hareem pants, mittens and booties.

And our friends at Sheerluxe have featured the Happy Carmen silk baby dress in their online magazine, saying "Definitely an investment, but equally one of the most divine little dresses around: pretty but not too frilly, and she loved the feel of the silk."

Happy Carmen baby dress, available in Grey, Coral or Teal silk, £96
