I make no apologies for cutting straight to Christmas within days of putting away with the Hallowe'en party costumes. The clever party girl will be in there like a shot to bag the best of the glam frocks because, believe me, by the end of the month, they'll be gone, especially the affordable ones that deliver glamour in black and gold.
Dolce & Gabbana led the baroque trend which has been interpreted well on the high street with ornate textured fabrics and opulent brocades -- good exhibition pieces, ideal for the upcoming party season.
Irish chain A/wear has re-positioned itself on the retail map and upcoming deliveries include some very cute and flattering bell-shaped frocks and pretty metallic skirts that bring a baroque twist to last year's favourite jacket or top.
