Simply Be Partner Styling Challenge

I mentioned on my Twitter that me and Scott (my husband) are taking part in the Simply Be Partner Styling challenge and I won't lie when I say, that I was beyond excited! Scott was given a task of picking a Christmas Party Outfit for me, creating a Polyvore collage and making sure all the pieces are perfect for me.

I do trust him, but I had to approve his choices before we sent the final list of items :) Scott was also asked to pick my makeup, hair and nails and here is the final result with plenty of photos to document how he did.

The full outfit is very me and I couldn't be happier with it. The dress is absolutely stunning and the detail is just incredible. It's the Lace & Nude Dress* and I am wearing a size 20, which is a perfect fit. I am in love with it!

Since the sleeves of the dress are made with a very thin fabric, a jacket was a must for this outfit. Scott picked the Tux Jacket with PU Tris & Front Zips* and again, it fits me like a glove! The zips can be open or closed, but I prefer to leave them open, as it gives the jacket  a nicer shape.

The bag could  be a bit bigger, but it is a lovely little piece and it has enough space for a mirror, a lipstick and a phone. It's the Jewel Box Clutch* and it comes with a long chain as well. Just look how sparkly it is!

The Peep Toe Shoes* are gorgeous too, with gold heels and bows on the front. Very girly, but also elegant.

When it comes to hair, Scott loves when I curl it. I am wearing extensions to add volume and I used the Enrapture Totem Styler for styling. My makeup is very simple with a very subtle smokey eye, liquid liner and a nude lip gloss. I am also wearing naked Flushed palette on the cheeks and Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder allover my face to add a nice glow. On my nails, I am wearing a black shade by Leighton Denny.

And here is the Polyvore board Scott created. Very festive :)
