i hear those sleigh bells ring

In my post 'G - l - a - m - o - r - o - u - s' (eughh..that title still gives me shudders..what was I thinking?!), I briefly mentioned dressing for Christmas. Since I don't do this often on the blog and since it is Christmas (well I know the day has passed, but I'm on my hols so therefore it's still Christmas), here's what I wore.

In my opinion, 'tis quite the festive fare, indeed I have been referring to it as the 'Christmas Bauble/Tree look (that title probably won't be catching on in fashion circles). It's red, it's gold, it's green, I might as well have added the fairy lights, but you know I like things to be over - the - top. Without further a do..

(click to enlarge)
Top and jacket: Topshop, skirt and fur stole: River Island, shoes: Faith

The top really deserves a close up. Although you can't see it here as it is tucked into the skirt, it has a an empire line that flares into a prom shape, therefore resembling a really mini dress, unfortunately too mini to wear as an actual dress! Plus it has a fantastic exposed zip on the back. I can't say River Island is my favourite shop, too much for me I'm afraid, but this skirt is as lovely as christmas presents under a tree.

(Yes, messing around with photoshop is a wonderfully addictive waste of time and yes, this is bloody lazy post.)

fabulous outfit! regardless of what you call xmas dress your outfit really does encapsulate it all wonderfully- glitz, rock glam, sophistication- there isn't just one thing I love about it, but everything works perfectly. and glad you enjoyed my 100 things list- sometimes I wonder if I'm boring people with my narcissism haha, so happy you appreciated it!
