This year I attended not one but two office parties, to contrast with previous years, that I attended none.
Like I mentioned before, I was sent to the office party in Lisbon, under the theme Dinner with the Addams Family. I had to dress up, of course and given my already existing wardrobe, I picked Wednesday Addams.
The event was held at a very beautiful old palace, with lots of trompe l’oeil on the walls as well as hand painted tiling, that was built in the 16th century. What a lovely place!
We also had a photobooth and the zombie girls made an appearance!
So did Freddy Kruger, who won best costume of the night.
We rock ‘n’ rolled all night and partied every day.
The second party I attended was last weekend, back in England. This time the theme was Fire and Ice. It was a pleasant evening, especially because some of my friends from the Lisbon office were also there. I went home early though and that was a good idea as it seems that after a certain time a few people drank too much and caused a disturbance.
I even had a spot of dancing! How unusual, these days.
I found this beautiful dress at the River Island website when I was researching some unexpensive dresses for an article at work. I was smitten and attending this party was the perfect excuse to actually buy it. It was reduced from £110 to £60 and it was money well spent, as it feels so luxurious and vintage. I feel like I’m in the Great Gatsby!
I think I finally managed the smokey eye makeup, thanks to youtube. (headband – Dorothy Perkins, earrings – Internacionale)
I hope you are having a great festive season. Thanks for looking!
