Bonmarche Party In Lace

I expect you have your party outfit at the ready for new years celebrations? Only a couple of day’s now and we will see another year in. I hope you have something lovely planned….

Bonmarche kindly sent me this lace dress and fluffy bolero to wear. The lace dress is fully lined and is heavier than it looks. I always feel a dress hangs better if it’s not as light as a feather.

I love the Signature Eyelash Sparkle Shrug It’s really soft and fits perfectly at the waistline and has a hint of silver thread mixed in with the Navy. I know I will get a lot of wear out of this even for daytime with jeans. It’s a bargain price in the sales now at only £16.00

The dress, a Royal Blue lace on a black lining is also available in a Gold colour here at half price for a mere £30.00! I think they will sell like hot cakes! I nearly chose this one because I liked the flattering fit at the front.

If you haven’t looked at Bonmarche for a while I must advise that you do. The brand has really changed the last couple of years. Mother has been shopping there a long time and still does. When I used to go with her to choose clothes, I wouldn’t have batted an eyelid at the brand then. But they have really shifted gear and become an on-trend store and some of my favourite items are from there. I find Bonmarche Jeans really good quality and a great fit.

To accessorise the dress, I have chosen my vintage silver clutch bag and a sparkly diamante bracelet.Oh and Long chain silver earrings. I’m unsure whether I chose the right shoes? I decided to wear Black, but now I’m wondering if I should have chosen Silver? Would love to know your thoughts on this.

Black or Silver?

Before I go, I want to wish you all a very happy new year! See you in 2017!

    Looks a great dress. For me the black heels didn't look out of place but silver would go too. Thanks for sharing with #PoCoLo

    Love this outfit and it looks great on you! Very flattering and so pretty. Love the blue/black/silver combo, and the extra touches of silver for flash! I love the black heels, they are a great piece and keeping them in black helps the jewelry and clutch make their own impact. But I love that you could do either. The shrug is so cute and I can't wait to see you pair it up with other pieces! Happy New Year!

    Happy New Year Laurie! I love well made lace, and this dress is lovely with the blue and then silver threading. The shrug is perfect with this look. I love wearing a shrug or vintage stole with dresses for a fancy night out.

    I think that lace dresses always look so elegant – and this one pairs so beautifully with the shrug. I love the black shoes but I think you could definitely get away with silver too, especially for a party! Thanks for linking with #DreamTeam x

    Fab blog post Laurie, my post features a Bonmarche dress, although I prefer the M and S option. You look stunning as always Laurie – hope you've had a lovely Christmas. Happy new year to you too. Jacqui

  19. December 30, 2016 / 8:35 pm

    This is a gorgeous outfit Laurie!! I like the black shoes—they are definitely more subdued. But I do think the silver would have been beautiful too! Especially with that purse!

    • January 1, 2017 / 10:48 pm

      Thank you for your input Jodie. I agree Silver makes the outfit more evening and would jazz the outfit up more x

  20. December 30, 2016 / 3:08 pm

    I will certainly give Bonmarche a try – have never thought of going in there (my mum also shops in there!). The dress and shrug are very elegant. Have a lovely New Year's Eve.


    • January 1, 2017 / 10:45 pm

      Thank you Gail. Do pop into Bonmarche. You will be surprised at how much they have changed. x

  21. December 30, 2016 / 12:06 pm

    That is a beautiful dress and I like the mix of textures with the jacket. I think the black heels look nice with it although I agree silver would look good too 🙂

    Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and you have a happy new year 🙂
