- Matalan His & Hers Party Style...

With Christmas upon us and party season in full swing, there's no better time to get dressed up. Most of us experience the 'I have nothing to wear' panic, especially if we have several occasions to attend, so it's important to find classic and versatile pieces.

Cost is an important factor when choosing an outfit and Matalan have a vast range of party wear that's fashionable yet affordable. In today's post, me and my boyfriend, Rob, wanted to show you that 'party wear' doesn't have to be limited and can also be dressed down for alternative occasions. Film fanatics may recognise the location, Wollaton Hall, as Wayne Manor in The Dark Knight Rises.

  19. Love the outfits! The suit and trousers look SOOO much like a suit my husband had, that we accidentally left in a hotel while out of town. They said they "never found it" but we KNOW we left it there. It was so heartbreaking, it was my husbands favorite! *sniffles*

    Anyhoo, I found your blog through a fellow blogger, and just wanted to stop by and drop a line! It would totally make my day if you stopped by my blog sometime and said hi! Or kept in touch!! www.domesticgeekgirl.com
