Red & Gold makes the perfect Christmas

Hello everyone!

I hope you’re all well. I’m still bursting from all the food I’ve eaten in the past two days and I’m now sitting here comfortably in my bed, ready to get my blog on.

I’m loving all the posts about what you guys have been wearing over the festive season and today, I thought I’d show my Christmas dress. I cheated a little with these pictures as I took them a few days before Christmas with my lovely friend Shel (who only lives a delightful 15 minutes away from me). She’s my unpaid photographer and always does an amazing job, and I love the pictures she’s taken below.

I absolutely love this dress! I’m not usually a lace girl, but I saw this dress on the Simply Be website and knew it had to be *the* dress. The dress is a deep red so it's not too overwhelming and the lace is subtle and compliments the cut of the dress really well. I wanted to keep accessorising to a minimum as I wanted the focus to be on the dress, but I did want some standout accents. Gold was the colour I went for in the shape of a thin belt, earrings, and a beautiful necklace (made by Shel – she’s a talented bunny!) I decided to turn into a bracelet; there’s also flecks of gold in my adorable shoes from Dorothy Perkins. I also had to throw a bow in my hair… was Christmas after all!
Dress: Simply Be
Belt & Shoes: Dorothy Perkins
Tights: Boots
Necklace (made into bracelet): Made by Shel :)

 Lace and Bracelet in detail <3
Forever adjusting....
I couldn’t have wished for a better dress for the day!

I’ll be posting my end of year review next Monday, so keeps your eyes peeled for that.

‘til next time!

Love and hugs,


  1. You look so gorgeous! Your attire looks perfect and is giving a very Christmas-y (if that’s a word) vibe. The thin gold belt makes it look very chic and classy.

In the blogger world, success is often in reference to money or exposure. Often these two things go hand-in-hand, in that the more exposure you get the more you are in a position to ask to be paid for your work/ name/ face, etc. Blogging has become a business for many and an aspiration to even more, but are we being realistic?

Don't get me wrong, I think it's great to have ambition and to work and strive for a goal or goals, but I also think it's important to be realistic with those goals. There are so many factors that come into trying to make a blog a business. For example, bloggers whom have been able to make their blog their sole source of income are often white, slim/ slim passing, a small fat, able-bodied, cis gendered, and/ or with euro-centric beauty. There are of course other examples that correlate, but that's the starting point. Not every blogger is going to fall into that blueprint, nor should we, but unfortunately we have not yet reached a point where said…
