Christmas, But Make It Fashion

The older I've got, the more my Christmas has been about feeling comfy. When choosing what to wear, the biggest factors have mostly been to do with how stretchy the garment is, so as to ensure maximum comfort whilst diving into that second tin of Quality Street. I still haven't quite decided what I'm going to be wearing on the big day itself, but there are definitely some contenders in the pipe line. Glam, cosy or comfy, or something which encompasses all three?

Fly Me To The Moon - Venus Van Chic Pamela Sleeved Swing Dress from Dolly & Dotty

I've spoke about my love for vintage repro brand Dolly & Dotty before on the blog, and often find that they are one of my go to faves when looking for a dress for a special occasion. But recently there was a dress on their site which really caught my eye, one which stepped away from the usual frivolous kitsch normally associated with repro styles. This dress was grown up Bettie Draper realness, and the perfect style for anyone who wants a smart wardrobe staple with a vintage twist.
