Project Take 10 Challenge 18 – House of Fraser

Posted in Fashion.

‘Tis the season to be jolly, which in this century means a sparkly party outfit, a glass of champagne and Slade played at full volume. I’ve had the champagne chilling since late November and Slade is the first track on my Spotify Christmas playlist, so all I need is the sparkly party outfit – enter Project Take 10 Challenge 18 and the lovely people at House of Fraser.

Therapy at House of Fraser Bird Print Dress, Primark sequin cape, Miss Selfridge ring, ASOS clutch, vintage Gina heels

The relevance of the bird print was not lost on me – A Little Bird Told Me wearing birds! So cute. The shift shape of this Therapy Bird Print Dress inspired a 40s look, with a scallop-edged sparkly cape and delicate shoes. Because this is a straight up-and-down shape and I, erm, am not, I had to size up to get it over my bottom half, but I think the looser fitting is much more flattering. I love the bright orange colour and adorable print and can’t wait to dress this down with leather brogues and a woolly cardigan.

House of Fraser sent each Take Tenner a different party dress to suit our individual tastes, chosen by the HoF team themselves. I think they did a great job with mine, but what about the other girls? See for yourself…

We’re missing beautiful Ellie this week due to mix-ups and sizing woes, so we’re actually Project Take 9. Doesn’t have the same ring to it, does it? Still, at least there are lots of lovely dresses to distract you from the uneven numbers.

What do you think of the HoF party dresses? What are you wearing for the festivities?



Love the fact that they sent you a bird print dress! In fact, love all around for this outfit….seriously loving the print, colour, the added cape and black and gold accessories…

My christmassy party look wouldnt be too disimilar in that I’ll be rocking a bit of black and gold if I ever actually have a proper reason to get all dolled up.

But yeah, you look fab!
