Christmas Day brights
(Check out the hair advert shot :)
Here they are at last... photos of the obligatory Christmas Day dress up!
We always get dressed up in our family for the big day, and my sister and I usually consult with each other beforehand to check we won't be too similar in colour/style (it has happened in the past). I bought the dress a few years ago on eBay - an original 1960s dress that I [er, my mum] shortened; it's my go-to sparkly party outfit. It was crying out to be teamed with bright pink and my Nine West heels I got in the sale just before Christmas (I'd seen them on a few other bloggers' feet and sooo coveted them).
The perfect fit (amazing for eBay, no?) and non-stretchy fabric of the dress did not work out well with Christmas dinner. I knew in advance it would feel snug and not be a good accompaniment to a big meal, so my theory was that it would stop me eating too much and not at all feel like I'd be wearing a Victorian corset by 4pm, oh no.
