Aerial acts, a free bar and a fairground – too much fun. I and my lovely House of CB ladies went to Manchester for our staff night out, it was one of the funniest nights! I actually get dizzy when I think about those walterz. Wine and the walterz do not mix! It was definitely hilarious, though. There were so many things going on which made the night quite different from your average staff night out. I mean, a fairground? Brilliant! Of course we were first in line for our fair ride tokens.🎟
All of the House of CB dolls from the Manchester and Leeds store, and of course my Liverpool girls looked amazing. There were gorgeous floor length dresses, a little sparkle and flawless makeup everywhere. So Christmassy.
I had a bit of a disaster with my dress, though. I planned to wear the lovely satin, teal ‘Serafina’ dress (here) but I knew I wouldn’t have been able to dance and feel comfy in it (is it just me who sometimes dances a tiny bit in a new dress to make sure it’s good to go?). There’s nothing worse when you’re on edge, holding your chest all night to refrain from the dreaded nip slip! I guess I could have taped myself in but it’s Ok, all was good.
A little bit of panic set in when I didn’t have anything to wear until I tried on the pastel pink ‘Tristiana’ suit (here) – I loved it. It was the perfect fit and because it was tailored, I felt secure and didn’t even need to tape it. It was so pretty and I just adored the colour💗 I wore black heels, my acrylic patterned box clutch and I went for my standard deep purple lip.🔮
I loved the contrast of sweet pale pink with dark purple. Oh, I had purple nails too which helped tie it all in. I obviously wore my collection of silver rings, too – my outfit is not complete without my rings! I like to incorporate some sort of structure to all my outfits, so this suit was perfect for me and I felt really comfortable. I also love a clutch bag that has a little more too it – detail in a bag is everything.Pink Tristiana suit – House of CB

Without a doubt, this was the best staff night out I’ve been on, and with the best group of people! Thanks, House of CB! I wonder how we’re going to top this next year…
