We have our eyes on the Christmas party prize this week

It may be a week to payday but Team U are snapping up party staples like money is no issue. Until the credit card bill arrives! 


Just some Chanel-esque threads for a fraction of the price. Please and thanks…

Metallic thread jacket, €49.95, Zara

Do I need another faux fur jacket? No. Do I have the room for another faux fur jacket? No. Am I buying this faux fur jacket from Mango though? Yes.

Faux fur coat, €79.99, Mango


This shirt dress from H&M looks a lot more spendy than it is. It also comes in plain black and a blue floral but I like the mix of prints on this version.

Calf-length shirt dress, €27.99, H&M


I’m liking the Michelle Pfeiffer in Scarface vibes of this dress. I’d wear it with a shoulder-grazing earring (diamonté, obvs)  and a boxy blazer. Layer up a band T-shirt underneath for mid-week wear and Bob’s your uncle!

Silk slip dress, €46, Topshop


Who doesn't want to look like an extra from Rainbow? This cord jumpsuit is everything I need right now. 

Cord utility jumpsuit, €89.86, ASOS WHITE


With party season looming, I think I'd really appreciate having this androgynous, tuxe-style coat in my wardrobe, to wear over my many sparkly dresses and give them more of an edge. Please be mine? 


Long wool-blend jacket, €149, H&M
