Cheap Clothes Rule / Fashion and Style Blog

Wayyyyyy back in November 2008 we published a post on Christmas party dresses, “Christmas Party Season Dresses – The Rules” – amazingly, this off-the-cuff semi-advice piece became our most viewed post of all time! Last year we conducted a Christmas Shopping Poll on shopping habits at this year, where most of you said that you’ll be leaving everything till the last minute!

This year, we thought we’d ask straight out – what are you wearing this year?

In a quick straw poll of our mates, one range that seem s to be getting loads of recommendations this Christmas is the Pearl Lowe for Peacocks range – with the Gold Tanya dress and Salmon pleated dress being particularly popular. We’ve talked extensively ourselves about Pearl Lowe several times in the past – its no surprise to see it doing so well.

{October 21, 2010}   Pearl Lowe Christmas launch

With top UK value fashion chain Peacocks getting a lot of press coverage for its regularly updated range of stylish affordable clothing, it is now also becoming known for being trendsetter among the fashion cognoscenti. The widely admired Pearl Lowe at Peacocks range is in no small part an element of Peacocks’ knack for capturing the Zeitgeist, what with its brilliantly designed items at reasonable prices – and of course the added glamour of Pearl Lowe’s daughter being the face of the brand.

So it’s no surprise that Peacocks’ successful Christmas launch got some great coverage in Metro online, the website of the national newspaper. Held at the glitzy Connaught Hotel in Mayfair, London, the Peacocks Christmas launch was attended by model Daisy Lowe and her designer mum Pearl to show off the latest collection which is bound to be a smash hit in the fashion world. Available from November this year, pearl Lowe’s Christmas collection includes party dresses that will bring a touch of star quality to any party, along with other smart items such as faux fur coats and all at modest price levels.

Evening wear – how do you shop for it?

Some of the more upmarket shops easily sell stuff that isn’t particulary eye-catching, like £4000 for a dress, that’ll get worn only a few times.

Then there’s the neverending racks at the end-of-line discounters. Great if you’ve three afternoons’ worth of time to spend hunting for the right item.

Luckily in these information-rich times, there’s now the internet: with plenty of good inxpensive evening dresses online, so you can do your evening wear shopping online, and click your way to evening dress heaven!
