Cause a stir at your James Bond themed party!

A sexy, classy, elegant little number, perfect for a Bond themed party!

Although Daniel Craig was partially responsible for getting my heart racing at the Skyfall Premier this month, I must confess, the main cause of excitement for me was seeing all the ladies at the event looking so glamorous in their gorgeous dresses!  Bond fever seems to have struck the nation and our lovely customers are no exception; over the past few weeks we have witnessed a sudden surge of ladies coming into the boutique to find dresses for Bond themed parties.

When looking for your dress for a Bond themed party, you must look for dresses which are glamorous, sexy, but definitely not tacky.  The other thing to bear in mind is that you must never try to be something that you are not.  The Bond girls are all uniquely different in personality and each have their own wardrobe to reflect this, so all you need to do is pick your favorite Bond girl and steal her style!  At Walk in Wardrobe we can help you achieve both of these very important factors for your Bond party, it’s probably the reason why we are the first port of call for the local ladies attending Bond themed events!

So once you look drop dead gorgeous, all you need to worry about is making sure that the drinks are shaken and not stirred….

Showstopping long dress, great for a Bond girl!

Exquisite Venetian masks for your Masquerade Ball!

Everyone wants that special night out with a magical feel where fantasy can meet reality.  Masked balls are becoming increasingly popular and are a fabulous way of being part of a magical, fairytale evening.

The popularity of masked balls began in the 18th century and has remained strong to this day.  In the olden days, these masks guaranteed the wearer anonymity, meaning that aristocrats could party with peasants, make shifty conspiracies, or indulge themselves in secret romantic liaisons!  In today’s world, masquerade balls are all about having fun with fashion and partying the night away.  Over the past few weeks we had customers at the boutique looking for masks to hire and buy for their Halloween parties, University parties, charity events, corporate events and even birthday parties!

Once again at Walk in Wardrobe, we have gone out of our way to source the most show stopping, gorgeous masks direct from Venice.  These masquerade masks are striking with their jewels and feather plumes, are completely over the top and guaranteed to make you feel as glamorous and mysterious as an Edgar Allen Poe character!

Whichever mask you decide to go for, make sure you feel comfortable and have also got a glitzy dress to compliment it.  Just think, when you go to a masked ball you are keeping alive one of the most truly glamorous, centuries old traditions, and long may it survive!
