Outfit: holiday holly

It's time for things to get a little festive around here! And what a way to kick things off, as this dress is perfect for Christmas parties around the land and I've waited a long time to show it off!

Of all of the pieces Hell Bunny released this season, this dress was the one that really caught my eye. I love seasonal noveltywear, but it's easy to go quite far down the tacky route without even trying, thanks to all of the jumpers you see pop up every year now. This holly print isn't like that though - it's quite obviously Christmassy, but oh so tastefully done, especially when added to this 50s style dress. I really think it's quite elegant, in a way a lot of novelty-prints often aren't. You'll find my 20% off discount code below, if you take a fancy to it yourself.

I didn't want to add too much to this outfit, but a special hairpiece was required. Luckily, the lovely and fantastically-appropriately named Holly at Alternate Normality, jumped to the challenge of creating a matching hair comb. When I previewed this comb on my Instagram, a lot of my followers seemed to love it as much as I do - and now they and you can own your own as Holly put them into production! I paid for my comb and I don't get commission, but I want you to all check out her Christmas range because it's fantastic this year. Support small businesses :) 

And that's really all I have to say today because this outfit speaks for itself! Oh, other than to mention that things are going to be changing soon around here - I'm very close to launching my new blog, which doesn't look all too different from this one, but it's a lot swisher! I'm hoping that may happen this week, but one or two last issues to smooth out... Don't be surprised if you drop back one day to find things look new around here, though!
