Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree

By December 23, 2014 , , , , , , , , ,

 2 days to go! The past few days I've been doing all of the usual preparations- wrapping the final presents, sitting by the fire and attempting to create my first ever gingerbread house (let's just say my decorating skills lacked a bit of finesse this time!). With that all done, I can finally put my feet up, relax and catch up with my favourite festive films like Elf and Love Actually, so this will be my last post until after Christmas. I really hope you all have a lovely time, and can't wait to get started on some new ideas for the beginning of 2015!
 The past few weeks have also had me wondering what to wear for the big day, but thankfully Crown and Glory was my guardian angel and are running a 12 days of Christmas giveaway. I was lucky enough to win the giveaway from ModDolly, one of my favourite online brands that I've been swooning over for ages- I don't think I've ever won anything before, so it was certainly a lovely surprise! The prize was the Olivia pom pom dress, which features a luxurious black velvet fabric in a flattering smock shape, finished off with 3/4 length sleeves and a lace collar adorned with little pom poms. It's the perfect mix of casual vintage style and modern day glam, so it's a wonderful for celebrations.
I completed the look with simple heels, lace socks and minimal make up, before quickly making a pair of gold bauble earrings and popping a poinsettia decoration in my hair. 
Dress: ModDolly* Socks: Topshop, Shoes: New Look
Merry Christmas everyone, hope you have a lovely time this week!

  9. Love that you have a real tree, I like the smell of them :) We've had a fake one for a while now. I love your velvet dress, it's very Christmassy and looks lovely with the red flower in your hair
