What I Wore For Christmas Part 1

Merry Christmas everyone.

I hope you all have had a lovely time with your loved ones. I hope that all of you have had nice relaxing time without too much stress.

I have been spending Christmas at my sister in laws house in lovely St. Albans. It's such a great atmosphere, relaxed and happy. It's all I want a Christmas to be. I've never celebrated Christmas much from I was a child so I'm not a big fan of this consumerism cultural that we all seem to be taking part of so it's nice to have just taken it easy and spent a lovely time with family.

I wanted to share with you what I've worn over the Christmas period so far as I need to show you these two lovely dresses. I'm sure I will a do a more in depth review of both of them as they are stunning dresses.

First out was this red beauty from Simply Be. It's such a stunning Christmas dress. With it's beautiful wide velour hem it surely stand out from any other LRD(little red dress). I find this prom dress such good fit on me and I have enough room for my boobs too so I can't fault it. For a family Christmas Party I wore it with my traditional Norwegian winter cardigan, or as we call it in Norway, kofte. It is not a Christmas jumper as many in England thinks, but it is very apt for Christmas, so I can see the confusion. In Norway we would wear these jackets anytime in the winter. This one is one I inherit from my dear mum when she died, so I treasure it a lot.
It goes very well with my lovely dress though. I'm wearing fishnet tights that Tanya gave to me when I met her in London a couple of weeks ago. They are from Primark and are really stretchy and not at all bad. If you want some cheap fishnets that fits well even if you're a size 24+ then go to Primark and look there. Try them, you might be surprised.

    1. Thank you. The cardigan is from my mum, so when she died it has become even more special to me. :)

  2. Red really is your colour. You look gorgeous! x

  3. You look gorgeous! That is a perfect Christmas dress. I never get dressed up on Christmas, We all just laze around in pj's all day.

    1. In Norway it is always tradition that everyone get dressed in their nicest outfits for Christmas. :) It's very different here, but I think it is nice to dress up. :)
