It’s December the 2nd – can you believe it? I can’t! The start of December for many marks the start of festive season although some of us start in November (cough, ME) but now we can finally talk about everything Christmas without fear of any grinches ruining our fun!! Whatever you believe in, this is the time to get all glam and enjoy ourselves – it’s the end of the year which means holidays – and who wouldn’t want to celebrate that? I personally celebrate Christmas so please excuse the fact that’s all I’ll be talking about for the rest of the month (I am aware that other people celebrate different things and I love that!) With it now being December I’ll be sharing some outfit ideas and hopefully some recipes on this blog so I hope you are all excited about that!
‘Tis the season of work parties, family reunions and cocktails parties, isn’t it? To start the month of festivities I thought I’d start off with a bang with this jaw-dropping Katherine dress (that has kindly been sent to me) from Dolly & Dotty. It’s always a pleasure working with Dolly & Dotty – I have worked with them at least four (!) times now and I am happy to say I wear their Lily dresses almost weekly, as I have said in other posts I will NEVER recommend a brand that I don’t love myself!! I chose the Katherine dress as everything you envision a cocktail dress to be for the Christmas time – green, VELVET & dangerously low cut!
Although I never leave the house especially to go out drinking, I love how I can pretend to be a sophisticated and glamorous housewife that sips martinis by her Christmas tree without a care in world! The Katherine dress is more of an A-line dress than a swing skirt for me; I like a gathered skirt but this is definitely more paneled so it’s not suitable for a petticoat – which scares me a little (but I can get over that). It’s got the cutest button dealing on the sleeves with upturned sleeves and a tie at the waist (very flattering!) I’m wearing a UK 14 which is what I always am in Dolly and Dotty, I have found their sizing is accurate through the entire range which is super helpful when ordering other dresses from them 🙂 .
Dolly and Dotty has a huge range of dress and plenty of them would be perfect so check them out! They ship internationally and offer a range of sizes from 6 to 24! They are perfect if you’re looking for something budget friendly but well constructed and good quality – I have five dresses from them and I always find myself going back to them! Thank you so much Katie from Dolly & Dotty for feeding my dress addiction. ❤
Although the Katherine dress from Dolly and Dotty was sent to me all my thoughts & opinions are honest and my own. I do not accept products without researching brands beforehand and that aren’t suitable for me or my readers.
