My Hogmanay Little Black Dress

Tuesday, December 23

Dress: fecbek* | Coat: Chilli (via charity shop) | Shoes: M&S

Here I am back with another outfit post for you (finally). Today I thought I would show you my New Years Eve outfit with a little help from an online retailer fecbek. They very kindly sent me this little black dress and I knew it would be perfect for the night out. You wouldn't believe it but this is actually the first black dress to enter my wardrobe - I'm not a huge black wearer. 

The dress itself is 'free size' which I'm always wary of because I'm not a stick but after checking the measurements on the site I thought it would be okay. At a size 12 (with a fairly large chest) I would say I'm the top size it would fit. The dress is good quality for the price of under £20. The lace is however quite delicate... oops! Nothing a few stitches won't fix though.  Another thing I might add is a black bra is a must - the lace inserts come quite high up on me and no other colour would have worked. 

To go out on hogmanay I think I will wear my polar bear 'faux' fur coat to keep me warm (I'm anticipating freezing weather). Hopefully between now and then I'll be able to source some sparkly accessories (including a clutch) to add some colour to the outfit. 

Would love to know what you think of this LBD or if you think it goes nicely with the coat? Please let me know.
