Start the year as you mean to go on, eh? With glamour! The neighbours thoughtfully put on a fireworks display for us at the stroke of midnight, which was another lovely bonus of staying in to celebrate.
The dress is really lovely on, it's a heavy jersey with a velvet band under the bust that then forms a train at the back. It was really hard to photograph in our dimly lit living room (and after a few cocktails!), so you'll have to take my word for it. The necklace was a purchase last summer, and I had been saving it for a special occasion (taking out now and again to wear whilst doing the dishes...). It really does sparkle wonderfully, which we tried to capture in those slightly blurry arty close-ups.
That's the end of the festive outfit posts, we've taken all the decorations down now, eaten all of the chocolate, and it's back to work tomorrow for me. After over two weeks off I'm going to miss my lie-ins...
