My first Christmas party of the year was on Saturday, in Manchester, which I went to with some of the girlies from work. We stayed in the Manchester Palace Hotel, which is pretty stunning if not definitely haunted - but we had a rolltop bath, I'll take ghosts in exchange for that!
I wore a new dress from Modcloth which I got in the States. I don't think these photos do it justice, to be honest - in person it's a beautiful fit, an awesome cut and a lovely colour - this shade of green might not be everyone's favourite, but I love how different it is. Also, green + red hair = win.
It was an awesome night - there was even a DIY photobooth and a viking hat, two things which I've discovered that I love. If that viking hat had been around at the end of the night, I would have taken it home. Sadly someone else had the same idea (and the one at Erin's wedding fit better, anyway).
I'm not gonna lie, it was a rather drunken affair. In some of the photos, my teeth look purple from all the red wine I was quaffing - such a great look. But, you know, it was red wine. Who can turn that down when it's just sitting out on the tables like that?
