Hope you've all had a lovely Christmas! What presents did you all receive this year?

I bought this blue lace dress a couple of months ago and it is very similar to this but I am more comfortable with sleeves. I wanted it in a different colour but so many dresses that I want recently are blue (Kate Middleton effect). This New Look one is not as tight as the River Island dress, there's no way I am ever going to wear a bodycon dress on the day of an epic dinner! After failing to find something new to wear for Christmas, this New Look lace dress was what I chose. I don't know why I made a big deal out of my Christmas day outfit, because by 8pm, I ended up changing into something baggy and comfortable anyway!

What are everyone's plans for New Year's Eve? I'll be back to blog once more before it's 2012. This year has gone really quickly!

  5. Aw the dress is lovely! I have a similar one from ASOS, but it is more fitted.
    Love your photos! Which camera do you use?
    And I will probably be spending New Year's with family too. Best way to see the New Year in in my opinion. x

  7. I love the dress, and such a gorgeous colour, really suits you! Love the nails also :)
    I had a great christmas, and I hope you did too, I'm doing the same for new years, staying in with family. I've had parties etc in the past, but just chilling is the way to go in my opinion! I hope you have a happy new year.

  13. This dress is gorgeous on you, the sleeves are perfect! You really style it well! Then again, you suit everything *grumblegrumble*


    I've spent way too much on christmas shopping too, considering how incredibly skint I am - Oops! Nothing beats the feeling of finding the perfect gift though :D

    I have NO idea what I'm doing for new years - It'll be spent with the boy, but we're lost as what to do, boring eh? Not too bothered this year as long as I have a bottle of gin, might come and play cards with the family, but my brothers working! :*(

  15. Ahhh a very pretty look hun and the navy lace suits you so much! I adore lace when it comes to fashion. The Fox Bag is soooo cute! Merry Christmas again and a Happy New Year! xx

  16. You look stunning in this. I'm with you on the no bodycon thing...I wore jeans and a very floaty top so I had plenty of room for turkey and pudding. Yummy. I too have no plans currently for NYE. It'll be me and my boyfriend doing something, somewhere, that's all I know, but a good meal sounds like the perfect plan. I may suggest I cook and avoid the potential disappointment and expense of going out. He was over the moon with the Hero and Cape t-shirt I got him so thank you for introducing me. I can see your influence in the lovely handwritten note and pretty packaging. That or Niki's influence in yours! :) Hope you both had a fabulous Christmas! xxx ps...Don't worry about blogging overly...I haven't touched mine in ages, I've been so busy.

  18. I love the navy colour of this dress, it's lovely.

    I don't have plans for NYE really, watching films on the sofa snuggling with the cats and Craig! Rather that than freezing my bum off being out and spending far too many pennies.

  19. I love how you've accessorised this dress, makes it a lot less Kate Middleton! Lusting after that Fox bag now...

  24. Such a gorgeous dress, the lace detail is much nicer than the standard lace (: I'm saving up some money over the next few weeks/months, both for a treat for myself and for "the future". xx

  27. I totally know what you mean about overspending on presents. I almost had a heart attack when I added up how much I spent on my boyfriend! x

  28. That dress is gorgeous! I absolutely love it! ;D

  29. I cannot believe this dress is from New Look. It looks like a contemporary designer piece ( I think I need to make a trip to New Look tomorrow see if I find something).

    And boy do I agree on the Kate Middleton effect... Everywhere I look now there are draped Isa dresses as well. All getting a bit monotonous here!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Love this dress, and it doesn't look like a New Look piece at all (in a good way!) (: Hope you had an amazing Christmas.. Happy New Year! I'm not sure how 2012 has crept up on us, but it's nearly here! xox

  33. I love the dress, there's no way I'd be getting into anything bodycon especially at this time of year! I'm not a big of NYE these days, hope you have something nice planned :) xx

    ReplyDelete
  34. I have to agree with this year going quick - I feel as though yesterday I was waking up from last new years hangover!

    Love the chunky jewellery :)

  35. I don't think I will be able to wear bodycon until at least June due to the amount I have eaten. Gone far too much overboard oops!
    You look so lovely, the colour reallly suits you!

  59. I love that dress on you, I love a bit of blue lace. It's definitely a little bit different compared to the typical lace colours! I don't have anything planned for NYE either. I used to but these days, I tend to help my parents out at their shop and then I spend the rest of the night with them! I can't really afford to go out though to be honest!

  60. This is gorgeous! I love the colour xx

    ReplyDelete
  61. no NYE plans as of yet for me, I'm always happy to spend it quietly though - it always makes me feel quite reflective!
    Beautiful dress, think I saw my cousin in this or one very similar on Christmas day and wondered where she had picked it up. The colour is just beautiful on you xox

  64. I love this lace dress on you, it's casual yet chic. I totally understasnd if you are havin the Kate Middleton effect,who wouldnt? ;)

    Yes, i over spent on Christmas gifts and shopping too!!!! Gotta pay off my bills....god don't even wanna look at it!! haha

    I went to Macau for 2 days and 1 nite with a mate for xmas eve and we watched the house of dancing water. It was such an awesome show! Not sure if you heard of it but it's quite popular over here.

    Sadly no plans for NYE yet! and my family don't celebrate it so hopefully something will come up last min.

    Before i dash off, just wanna wish you a Happy New Year and all the best to 2012!!!=D and may our online business grow stronger and bigger,hehe
