Red wine and a red dress

Ahhhhhhhhhh :)

The family have all gone home after a wonderful Christmas full of absurd amounts of food, wine and laughter. Time to upload all my pictures and catch up on blogging to hit the 50 outfit target I set myself back in November (the cleaning can definitely wait a while).

Surprisingly I did manage to stagger to Christmas without having to repeat or resort to dressing up my pyjamas with a few fabulous accessories. Unsurprisingly, rather a lot of the photos are a little blurry and a bit the worse for wear, rather like their subject!

So, firstly, the red dress. Is there anything more Christmassy? I had seen a wonderful photo of Dita Von Teese looking fabulous (as ever) in a red jersey dress and I tried to emulate her with touches of animal print, red lips and dark glasses- but it didn't seem right for the stormy Yorkshire weather and I felt like I was off to a fancy-dress party. Black tights and boots made it more wearable and the red lips and black fur scarf added just a little dash of Dita-ish vintage glamour!
