I won't be going to a work Christmas party this year, so I've not had to dig out the old faithful little black dress this year after being disappointed by the dresses I've seen in the shops. I have to say I'm quite relieved about that. However, I still need to find a dress or outfit that is appropriate for Christmas Day.
On Christmas Day as I have cooking to do and taking care of a baby I tend not to get overly dressed up for Christmas Day. It is also far too time consuming spending time getting glammed up just to stuff myself with turkey! A bulging gut isn't the best accessory for a fancy frock!
I don't think my legs look particularly good in trousers and it is hard to find nice ones in my length as I am a bit of a short arse, so I like a nice knee length dress. I tend to opt for a plain block colour dress and jazz it up with some bold accessories or shoes. So this is the outfit I'm considering for Christmas Day. I'd love to know what you think.
A simple black dress. It has a bit of stretch to accomodate Christmas over-eating.
Some blingy earrings to add a bit of sparkle to the plain black dress.
Similar to the earrings.
These aren't my exact shoes, but very similar. Not had a chance to take a pic of mine yet. I call them sitting down shoes! As I can only wear such uncomfortably high heels when I know I won't be walking far! I'll probably wear my slippers when I'm up prepping dinner, but after that it is my statement shoes all the way. I think they really add glamour to a plain outfit!
That's it! What do you think of my choice. I think it is quite glamourous without making a huge effort. No Bridget Jones knickers necessary!
