So another Christmas Day has been and gone, and every year I do an outfit post featuring what I wore on the day. We always dress up at our family gathering, and as I'm finishing the year with a poorly back/leg, this year deserved a bright colour to cheer me up: What could be better (and brighter) than a red fit n flare dress?
The outfit actually started with the lovely tassel pendant from Yosa, a gift from my blogging BFF Rachel. I knew it would look gorgeous on a solid, bold colour, so ta-dah! One Christmassy red dress accessorised with black, gold and some long-forgotten patterned tights.
It strangely echoes what I wore for Christmas Day last year, which was effectively the same style dress but in baby blue. I also wore the same heels, but didn't realise that till I looked back on what I wore writing this post. I guess if it ain't broke, don't fix it...!
TA-DAH! ONE CHRISTMASSY RED DRESS ACCESSORISED WITH BLACK, GOLD AND SOME LONG-FORGOTTEN PATTERNED TIGHTS
You may be surprised to see me wearing heels, considering I have a slipped disc (though it's sciatica and the pain is in my leg, not my back). I was determined to wear some pretty heels, even if they were just for sitting around and these photos. However, I found that a medium block heel does give me a little relief as flats stretch my hamstring (the painful part) too much. I can't walk very far so ironically, a pair of heels just for hobbling around the house has turned out to be kinda practical...!
One last thing: Please excuse the hair, it was raining and blowing a gale that day and when we got back inside I looked like I'd been dragged backwards through the proverbial hedge. Not a fun photo shoot :(
