This year, I had my Christmas Eve outfit picked out weeks in advance. I bought the accessories super early and spent time identifying the perfect dress to go with them. I knew I wanted a fitted silver, sequinned dress. Unfortunately, that's surprisingly difficult to find in plus sizes. Eventually I found this one from Asda but when I went to buy it on payday, it had completely sold out. Gutted isn't the word. I tried everywhere to find a suitable replacement but couldn't find a thing I liked. Instead I settled on this red lace Primark dress that I bought for Christmas two years ago.
It does somewhat ruin the magic of dressing up for Christmas when you're wearing a dress you wear to work on a probably-too-regular basis but at least I had these incredible accessories from ASOS!
Look how beautiful they are! They're called Lapland and are actually in the sale at the moment (although not many sizes are left, understandably!). I think they perfectly finished off my outfit, although they would have looked nicer with that silver dress!
