Anyway, I managed to swap it for another one of the same price and could even get away with not rolling up the sleeves (this goes down in history as a first), which is lucky as they're rather pretty on the ends. And while the main pattern features snowflakes, it's subtle enough to be ok for the rest of winter, I think. Hence no red, green or sequins went into the making of this outfit post ;)
Oh and it's also the first blog outing for my new most treasured clothing possession - a pair of BAIT boots. How I've adored every pair of shoes that company produces for over a year now, but my feet are an even more abnormal shape than my body, plus I don't know what my US shoe size is so I've never risked it, until now... US readers - please settle this once and for all; are women's shoes 2.5 sizes larger than UK, or is it 2?? Every website offers conflicting advice! So, the boots cost a fortune to get through customs and of course they're too small (even though I ordered 2.5 up, sigh)... But I'll take the pinched toes in order to strut around in their beauty. Considering how short my legs are, I'm very lucky the top of the boot didn't finish so high up I couldn't bend my knees!
