This post comes all the way from the UK--shout out to the Brits among us! The wonderful people at Farfetch Boutique asked me to have a look at their Champagne Season holiday collection and sent along a gorgeous infographic from the collection called Cocktails in Wonderland (how yummy is that title?!). Designed with one of the hottest online fashionistas Margaret Zhang, Cocktails in Wonderland takes a fresh approach to party wear, perfect for any upcoming holiday parties.
Farfetch is a community of over 300 independent boutiques from Seattle to Bucharest that all gather under Farfetch online. If you order from the website, your items are shipped directly from the boutique. With offices all over the world, Farfetch is definitely an international shopping experience.
The Enchanted Escapes look uses the princess-esque femininity of Saint Laurent's latest collection combined with some stark black leather. The soft pink, ruffled, gorgeous dress, fittingly named 'lulu', is paired with some kick ass black leather boots named 'fetish'. Kick up your party game by combining soft elements like pink and tulle with hard black leather. #PrettyLethal
Make way for the Queen! Alexander McQueen, that is. More pink and ruffles and gorgeous pleats are combined with Victorian-era style waistlines and silhouettes, noted to evoke our childhood memories of Beauty and the Beast--a gorgeous castle with a somber story. The romantic, beaded gown in the picture is Oscar de la Renta, and you can find McQueen's soft pink yet somber dresses, as well as some black leather studded booties and a black skull-accessorized clutch, here.
Finally, some Gothic Glamour. This look is all about taking risks in your party fashion. Take inspiration from Maleficent or Alice in Wonderland--push the boundaries of fantasy and reality. The embellished lace top is from Alessandra Rich and the skirt is Simone Rocha. Take inspiration from your favorite childhood fairy tale for your next party look.
I highly suggest having a drool over the rest of the Champagne Season looks. Designers include Valentino, Burberry, more McQueen and Oscar de la Renta and Saint Laurent. For your next big formal occasion, turn to Farfetch--300 boutiques, 1 address.
My thanks to Farfetch for suggesting this post--as always my opinions are my own. I gained nothing of monetary value in exchange for this post.
