When it comes to party planning there’s nothing more kickass than picking a fancy dress theme to celebrate a special occasion; but you can be forgiven for thinking that fancy dress just means dressing up as your favourite cartoon character – there’s a whole lot of fancy out there to enjoy too!
I love celebrating each season with a little shopping spree as I generally update my wardrobe every few months with the latest fashion trends as well as adding a few choice pieces of fancy dress to my closet. My latest online shopping spree at Smiffy’s includes an eclectic selection of a Tinkerbell dress, PVC skeleton mini, red lace lingerie, a black fishnet jumpsuit, two wigs and a few items of hosiery which has just put the biggest smile on my face.
I spent this Halloween dressed as a dead Tinkerbell fairy which made a wonderfully vibrant change from the cliche of witch, zombie or vampire and certainly turned a few heads. Adding fake blood to any fancy dress costume instantly brings it into Halloween territory, likewise accessorising with tinsel or glittery shoes and a purse makes the very same outfit suitable for Christmas and New Years.
I also love experimenting with hair colour as I’ve been blonde for the majority of my life – aside from a few regretful brunette mishaps – which is why I find it far easier to try out a new style, test a bold colour or throw in a fringe by using a wig rather than lobbing off your own locks or going crazy with the hair dye.
The lace wigs are so comfortable to wear, easy to fit and never slip off – the difference between using a reputable quality brand rather than a cheap boutique where the items arrive entirely different to the products in the picture.
A quality hairpiece really brings an outfit to life and speeds up the time taken to get ready as I simply twist my hair up, pop on a net and slip my wig into place. Available in every length, style and colour of the rainbow there is something for every taste and occasion and the wigs work equally well with a pair of skinny jeans and a vest top to inject a bit of fun and colour into a wardrobe – they’re not just for fancy dress.
Finally, I find a new set of lingerie and hosiery makes me feel a million dollars and whether I wear it in the bedroom or under my outfit to work it certainly has me standing proud with a wiggle in my walk. We all deserve to look and feel good and personally I find confidence in trying new styles and stepping out of my comfort zone.
Whether you’re looking for a party piece to go down in history, a little something something for your anniversary or fun accessories and extras to spice up your wardrobe Smiffy’s is a treasure trove for all fashionistas, fellas and families alike!
