Your Fairy Tale Moment Is Nearly Here, Sieze It Firmly With Both Hand's & Do A Twirl,Go On!

You might wonder why You see before you an image of fairytale castle? Well I reckon that if anytime of the year is one where we should feel able to loose ourselves in a fairytale moment allowing ourselves to revel in our feminity and feeling beautiful it's the Christmas party season! So as a special treat I thought I would inspire you with a little Barbie couture. Ok we are not all barbie thin or wish to be for that matter, but why not take a little inspiration from one of the most Stylish dolls on the block! 
Rose pink fishtail dress, pure romance for that Christmas ball

Or perhaps this encrusted gold fishtale would be more to madams liking?

This black dress is achingly chic, modelled by our girl Barbie, but check out this original breathtaking Audrey Hepburn little black dress, below.

How about this collection of beauties? Vintage cuts in this seasons hottest colours.x

 I Adore this oriental inspired gold number, warming to cool skin tones and soo flattering against olive skin tones. The feathery, hairstyle, evocative of a plume on a helmet, brings this classic style bang up to date.

Bare legs are big news this winter brrr!

So on trend, faux fur shawl collar and tweed weave, pretty pink looks opulent on red heads and makes an elegant cover up over your evening dress.

Shimmer, sparkle and splash, all you would be mermaids out there!

Vintage anyone? Flapper dresses are great for boyish female shapes and create the much desired movement and swing, they were intended for originally!

Breath taking gold column dress, simply could not resist the fish scale fringing so pretty and echoing the 20s flapper look.

 Lets take Another sneaky peak into Audrey Hepburns auctioned vintage wardrobe, shall we? How many woman, could resist the elegant, feminine charms of this ivory dress of Audrey Hepburns? Great winter white dressing with a faux fur cape and lace up gold or teal boots, skater style!

Audrey had an eye for detail, layering, double bows and lace all wrapped up in a muted green that is soo flattering to peaches and cream complexions.

To finish, there is lace and then there is frothy, floaty lace!Simply stunning.  Sx

I think I would definitely go the route of a flirtier frock with a shorter hemline a la Audrey; though I must admit that Miss Barbie pulls off the fishtail so well! I absolutely adore feeling like a princess straight out of a fairytale when getting gussied up for the holidays!! :)
