The women brought glamour to the dance floor and the men brought some shifty moves, but we all love a bit of razzle-dazzle here and there. This year we want to help you to achieve the Strictly look at home, jazz up your jeans and add some shimmer and sparkle! If you have something old lying around, maybe a plain dress that could do with a new lease of life, then this post is for you. Embellishments can revamp any item in your wardrobe..
