I'm a lover of glitter all year round but as soon as Christmas is approaching I go extra crazy for a bit of sparkle. Whenever I walk through a clothes shop at this time of year I head straight for the sequins. The same goes for anything velvet or faux fur. Winter just brings out the texture lover in me. There's something about the festive season that makes luxurious, over the top fabrics more acceptable, and I'm all about embracing that - as you can see from this outfit! 

SoS15 sent us a couple of amazing sparkly clutch bags that are perfect for the party season and I felt I needed an outfit to match the awesomeness of this Gin bag. I bought this jumpsuit for celebrating Hogmanay last year, because a new year needs sequins. It's slightly OTT for a Saturday afternoon around Edinburgh but I enjoyed being a walking, talking glitter ball for the day. Who needs to wait for nightfall to enjoy a bit of glitz?! I dressed it down a little with flat shoes and my Monki shirt. The idea was to go for a slightly masculine, tuxedo vibe because, in my head, gentlemen drink gin so I felt like it would fit with the bag. Silly really, since gin is my tipple of choice and I'm no gentleman. The clutch bag itself is super cute. It's a lovely bright shade of green and is a great wee size, making it very easy to carry. It fits a coin purse, keys, lipstick and phone perfectly - so pretty much all they essentials for a night out. The heart zip pull is the perfect finishing touch!

Saundra O'Shea is the designer behind SoS15 and she makes some fabulously show stopping bags. I spotted her creations on Instagram a while back and fell in love with her array of pop culture, glam and personalised clutches. I even featured one in a wishlist of mine back in July. All of the designs are drawn, cut and appliqued by hand in her London studio and the detail of the process is spot on. I've tried working with glitter fabric in the past and it can be a right pain so I take my hat off to her! As with all good bags, the inside matters and Saundra's designs hold wonderful surprise linings that don't mirror the full on glam of the outside but do feature some great patterns. I love the quirky touch it adds to the overall design.

So, if you're looking for a party clutch for the festive season (and on into 2017 and beyond) then check out SoS15's dazzling collection. If, like me, you love this little gin number then you're in for a treat - you can get £10 off with the code Tipple2 until midnight on Wednesday 14th December. Go, go, go!
