Dress - Joy, Shoes - Bata, Clutch - Lulu Guinness, Bracelet - Christmas Present

Hello all! Hope everyone's had a lovely festive period. I had intended to post more over the past few days but my computer which I have nursed lovingly back to health on more than one occaision finally shuffled off for good just before Christmas, so it took until now for me to be able to post from my shiny new laptop.

Anyway, better late than never here is what I wore on Christmas day, to go out and eat with my family and then to lounge around the house in complaining about how much my stomach hurt! This is very much my Breakfast at Tiffany's outfit, complete with pearls and my rather lovely new handbag whch I received for Christmas from my parents. The dress is quite old but I feel absolutely fantastic in it every time I wear it, and hey - Midis are back in fashion so I am so Autumn/Winter 2010 right now!

I am SO jealous of your Lulu Guinness clutch! It's so cute & kitsch yet also classic at the same time.

I looove the length of that dress! You look absolutely amazing and I love all the red accents in your outfit. The lipstick really suits you! And the Lulu Guinness clutch, I'm sure I saw that on one of your wishlists? How awesome that you got it! Beautiful bracelet, too. One of my favorite outfits of yours yet :)

I love your party dress! It looks amazing on you, loving your hair to! Hope you had an amazing Christmas and happy new year!! x

Krissy said...

Ah yes, the inevitable stomach pains. Every year we tell ourselves we wn't eat so many sweets next Christmas, and when it rolls around, there they are all over again. Personally, I have zero self control. If there's yummy food to be eaten, it's going in my stomach. :P

But anyhow, I digress. Your dress is so lovely! Very timeless, and definitely something that can be worn for many years to come.

Jazzabelle said...
