Heiress vs Penniless: Christmas Clutches

If you haven't got the message yet, we're sort of excited about Christmas...
 
So far this week we've brought you our round-up of the coolest Christmas Knits this season (just under a week and a half til Christmas Jumper Day people...) and we've also given you our pick of the best luxe pampering gifts to give your Christmas shopping (or your very own Christmas list) a bit of a boost. Next up, we've got a key Christmas fashion dilemma covered...
 
Picture the scene - it's 7am on a Thursday in Mid-December. You're likely hungover from a couple too many festive gin & tonics last night and this morning you have even more to contend with than usual... On top of trying to make a breakfast which consists of more than just your advent calendar chocolate, and in addition to getting your layering just right so that you don't freeze on the walk to the station, boil on the underground or expose yourself to your fellow commuters as you try to do the public transport strip, this morning you also need a party appropriate outfit for this evening's work Christmas celebrations...
 
Let's pause it right there and avert any pre-Chrimble breakdowns immediately. That's right, we're going to get your work Christmas party outfit sorted right now... This year, you will be wearing a black dress to the office which you can dress down by day and then vamp up for the evening with a pair of very high heels and a blinder of a clutch bag. Now, how easy was that?!
 
What's that? You don't have a blinder of a clutch bag? Well of course we have that sorted for you too - come on what do you think we are? Men not Mice?!
 
What's that? Given the sackfuls of presents you need to buy for 25th December, you don't have the cash to shell out on a blinder of a clutch right now? Well we've thought of that too... without further ado, we bring you the path to Christmas pzazz whatever your budget...
