Ask E: Party Pieces Under £150?

Dear E, My 30th birthday is coming up and I have no idea what to wear. I have a few occasions organised, and I would like to wear a different outfit for each party. However, I don’t want to spend a fortune! Do you have any tips or suggestions on what I could wear? – Liz. C 

Dear Liz, first of all Happy 30th Birthday, I hope you celebrate with plenty of fine wine and expensive champagne!

Birthday outfits can be so hard to find. You want one that stands out and screams ‘Birthday Girl’, but you also want something quite comfy and easy to dance in all night long. If you’re on a budget and want to wear various outfits for each party, I would suggest splurging on an expensive piece for your main occasion, and opting for more affordable pieces for the other occasions. You can easily find some gorgeous items for under the £150 mark these days, and most of the time no one will be able to tell how much you secretly spent!

If you’re anything like me, the events you’ll be organising for your 30th will be oh so fancy, and will include luxurious dinner dates, sexy cocktail parties and ladylike high teas. Therefore, I want you to be covered, no matter the soiree you’re organising.

I’ve chosen 30 attainable, yet super stylish pieces ranged from £40-£150, all of which will make you elegantly stand out, be the centre of attention (even more so than you will be!), and glow like a radiant birthday star!

Whatever the occasion, I’m sure you’ll find something gorgeous.

Let me know what you pick!

E. Xx
