Strictly come sparkle

Its the run up to Christmas, everything is covered in glitter and like a moth to the flame I cannot tear my eyes away from 'Strictly come Dancing'.

I'm not sure if it's the music, old brucey's corny jokes, the amazing dancing or perhaps the fact that everyone is as sparkly as a herd of excitable pre-pubescent girls covered in glitter outside a screening of High School Musical.

Whatever it is I want it! If like me, you are craving a bit of shimmer in your wardrobe but want to keep it classy like the strictly crew a brilliantly cheap idea is to visit Oxfam's website. On there you can find in the evening wear section outfits from vintage designer Frank Usher, with this blue top priced at £14.99, to this Karen Millen dress from £120.

Do a little dance, make a little love....

Does anyone else after they've bought new clothes and hurried back to the safety of their rooms, try on their new purchases (all at once), whap on a tune and just generally dance about like a five years old at a school disco?

I blame MGMT's album, my new charity shop finds and that massive pack of jelly beans.
