Competition: Create a festive shop window for Next

Next have kindly given me the chance to host this amazing competition. All you need to do is create a Christmas shop window using products from Next. You could focus on festive accessories, a perfect table setting, or – like I did – beautiful Christmas party dresses.

I get the pleasure of choosing the winner and that lucky person will win a £500 Next gift card.

Take a look at my creation below for a festive shop window. I hope it gives you some inspiration. All you need to do is create your shop window and post it on your blog. When you’re done, pop back here and post a link in the comments so I can take a look.

The competition closes on December 21st and the winner will be announced in the new year!


The Shiny Geri dress would go perfectly with these Chelsea wedges. Great for any Christmas party where you intend to be doing a lot of dancing. The boot has more support than a regular shoe and the heel isn’t too high.

Next in my shop window is this red lace Lipsy dress. I’d pair it with simple black court shoes for a really show stopping look. This would perhaps be best for a Christmas meal, or even Christmas Day itself.

Finally, a perfectly snowy Lipsy prom dress. Pair it with nude court shoes or if you want extra glitter, a some shiny pumps. This would be a great dress for Christmas day, especially if you are going somewhere nice.

Next reserves the right to exclude from the competition any entry that does not meet the criteria set out in these terms and conditions.
