Fashion Faux Pas?

I was a little like the proverbial gooseberry last night with all the couples (V's Rockstar Boyf managed to get home from his tour of Europe) but fun was had all the same and I got some lovely presents. I made people try my homemade treats infront of me to see the reactions and either they are really good actors or I make good candy! The Southampton Arms  do the most amazing roast pork baps, if you happen to be in Kentish Town NW5 I highly recommend them!

I'm so excited! I get to see my Dad, my Little Bother, his Missus and her folks today the downside is that my niece and nephews (!) won't be there, oh and I have to be up super early (6am!) which my body always seem to object to. The bright side of the early start is getting to read my book on the hour long tube journey I have to take to meet my Dad in Rickmansworth and the niece and nephews will be back before I leave for London. There is always a silver lining if you look.

Today I am wearing this dress which is fast becoming one of my favourites....



Dress: Miss Selfridge
Jumper: Miss Selfridge
Tights: Dorothy Perkins
Boots: Faith

Now I know He does not approve of white tights but these are cream and teamed with the short dress, knee high boots and hint of cleavage I think they look foxy, this would have been my outfit for my date with The Architect if he hadn't contracted the flu. What do you think, cream tights; yes/no? If you haven't come across Fashion By He you should head on over and check it out, it's laugh out loud (LOL, if you will) funny and always puts a smile on my face.

I have also decide to wear this coat...


.....which is vintage, I got it from The Antique & Vintage Dress Gallery which is a website that I love trawling through. It is a real mink collar but it is also about sixty years old, I don't buy or agree with new fur clothing but vintage is a different thing to me. What are your thoughts?

Enjoy your Christmas Eve celebrations whatever you are up to, I'm sure mine will involve a large Baileys, some silly board games and lots of food, I also hope Santa is kind to you all!

Lots of Love

(I took these photos at about 2am but this is what I am wearing today I just knew if I left it till later it might never get done!)

  1. I have a dress almost the same but more green!
    I think the tights just about pass as they are cream- though if they were just a touch whiter then it'd look like you're wearing your catsuit under your dress...

    Have a fab time with the family!
    Miss you!

  2. I love your dress; it's very pretty. I'm not sure about the white tights though so I'm going to have to say no. Now, the coat in the your last photo on the other hand is so stunning and dramatic! Sounds like you have a busy days ahead of you! Wishing you a beautiful Merry Christmas! xoxooxoxo

  4. Hi lovely,

    Sorry i haven't visited for a while, been away from the blogsphere trying to keep my head above the water in my new job.

    I couldn't wear cream tights myself as I'm not that keen on my legs but I think you and Leighton Meeser pull them off!

    Glad you brought up the question of vintage fur. I don't support farming animals just for their fur but I eat meat and I wear leather so it seems wasteful not to use their fur as well just because that is somehow seen as worst! I bought a vintage rabbit fur coat for £20 the other week, it's rabbit and I eat rabbits, plus it seems a waste to destroy it now.

    Have a lovely Christmas!

  6. The floral dress is beautiful and honey you can pull off any color of tights! The coat is also stunning and I agree with you, I don't wear real fur except if it's on a vintage piece. Although I wouldn't buy a full (real) fur vintage coat. Weird logic, I guess, but that's me! Have a Merry Christmas!!!

  7. You dedicated blogger!! Love the dress and coat! I'm very against real fur but I do figure if the animal is already a coat is isn't too bad...is it?!

    I'm not a huge fan of He, I was (note the past tense!) following his blog for ages but he kept commenting with the generic nice pics, come follow me etc and this pissed me off! Anyway!

    Have an AMAZING Christmas and keep in touch with all of your exploits! XXXXX
